Eoin wanted to know the source of the margin Debt issue. it's the Felder Report.
The margin data is now published by FINRA - my inexperienced eye believes that the article has over-stated the reduction of margin somewhat. (It's Ha Ha) - marginal.
FINRA took over reporting: https://www.finra.org/investors/learn-to-invest/advanced-investing/margin-statistics
Thank you for these educational emails covering an important subject. Margin debt balances had long been a useful indicator of appetite for risk in the markets but the NYSE stopped producing the data in 2017. Generally speaking, margin debt balances turn downwards, from a new high, ahead of a major reversal in the stock market. There has been a great deal of speculation recently about whether that is what we are seeing today.Click HERE to subscribe to Fuller Treacy Money Back to top
