    Diversified Anchor Fund Launch

    So, I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but the wheels of government and lawyers run slow. That said, as of TODAY, we're done with everything and are now accepting subscriptions. Here's what's occurred over the last month: 1. The US Based Feeder (the entity US investors will go into) is up and running, Reg-D notices have been filed with the SEC, bank accounts open, offering documents finalized, etc. It's been ready for about 3 weeks; 2. We JUST got our GIIN/FACTA compliance numbers back from the IRS today for the offshore entity for the non-US investors. Basically I had to fill out a bunch of forms and open an account that says this entity does not accept US taxpayers. The offering documents also just got back from the lawyers in BVI this past Friday. Up until today, I could not accept outside the US investors. 3. All of our accounts have been approved and opened at Interactive Brokers. In the coming days, I'll be sending out offering updates and documents to all of those who expressed interest in joining. If I have not talked (or at least emailed with you), and you have interest in investing in the Fund, please email me at cwelsh@lorintinecapital.com. If you wish to help fund raise (and get paid for it if that's legal where you are, in the US it is, reach out as well. We have several people signed up as solicitors to assist so far. You can also post questions and the like here, or directly message me through the SO site, but email is typically the fastest.

Economic news: US: The Biden administration on Thursday released $3 billion in COVID-19 rescue funds aimed at helping localities bolster their economies in the wake of the pandemic, calling on communities to seek funding for a range of revitalization projects. The funding, authorized by the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act, is part of President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda to rebuild the nation after the novel coronavirus triggered widespread shutdowns and led to more than 600,000 U.S. deaths so far. The Democrat-backed bill was passed in March. New funding will be available to communities nationwide through six programs run through the Department of Commerce targeting jobs, for instance, in tourism, the agency said in a statement. “This investment will ensure that they have the resources to recover from the pandemic and will help create new jobs and opportunities, including through the development or expansion of a new industry sector,” the Commerce Department said. Eurozone: The European Central Bank pledged on Thursday to keep interest rates at record lows for even longer to boost sluggish inflation and warned that the rapidly spreading Delta variant of the coronavirus poses a risk to the euro zone’s recovery. The central bank of the 19 countries that share the euro said it would not hike borrowing costs until it sees inflation reach its 2% target “well ahead of the end of its projection horizon and durably” — a controversial decision that generated significant dissent. “We did so to underline our commitment to maintain a persistently accommodative monetary policy stance to meet our inflation target,” ECB President Christine Lagarde told a news conference. She said the ECB wants to see inflation head to 2% by the mid-point of its forecast horizon, which currently stretches to 2023 and is extended by one year every December, and that any deviation above the target should be incidental.

    Welcome to Steady Options

    First post of every discussion topic has a link to the strategy overview. I highly recommend reading them. They have the profit targets (among other information).

    Welcome to Steady Options

    I have a very newbie question on the suggested exit price or target. It’s mentioned in the welcome note that it would be listed in the trade topic created, but I can’t seem to find it. I did see a target gain in the pre-trade discussion of a couple recent trades, but couldn’t find it in others. So all that to ask, will the suggested exit price be in the trade topic or in the pre-trade discussion topic? Thanks in advance!

    @PacMan The RV-Tool is free to download and use. No chartaffair subscription is required. But you need a data subscription with IB in order to pull real time market data.

    IB is definitely one of the best in terms of execution.

    Brokers and commissions

    In reading all the discussion of fills - can someone offer a thought on IB how often they're outright missing a trade? If I go to put on the trade as soon as I get the alert and don't chase and just leave it for the rest of day and through next how often are you just never getting the price? In my experience here I feel that's happening way more to me than the general chatter suggests so trying to get a frame of reference for my expectations

    Tools must have

    @olufemig Hi, I have the same configuration. I model my trades in ONE but then manually enter the orders into IB as you have more control that way. If you transmit from ONE it commits the trade to its database at what are likely to be incorrect prices which you will have to update once/if the trade fills. One thing I do find useful though is to create a flex query in IB to export the trades to a CSV file after they have filled. You can then import this into ONE safe in the knowledge that ONE now has a 100% accurate record of the trade and you can monitor it accordingly. You need to wait about an hour after the trade fills for the data to be available for the flex query but things don't tend to move so fast that that becomes an issue.

Economic news: US: U.S. President Joe Biden’s drive for big new infrastructure investment got a boost on Tuesday when leading Senate Democrats agreed on a $3.5 trillion investment plan, they aim to include in a budget resolution to be debated soon, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said. “We have come to an agreement,” Schumer told reporters after more than two hours of closed-door talks that included Senate Budget Committee Democrats and White House officials. Republicans have not been part of these negotiations. “You add that to the $600 billion in a bipartisan plan and you get to $4.1 trillion, which is very, very close to what President Biden has asked us for,” Schumer said. Schumer was referring to work being done on a separate, bipartisan infrastructure bill totalling $1.2 trillion, of which nearly $600 billion would be new spending. This bill would finance the rebuilding of roads, bridges and other traditional infrastructure, as well as expand broadband internet service to many rural parts of the United States. Democratic and Republican negotiators on the bipartisan measure also reported progress late in the day. Eurozone: The European Central Bank is set to give the green light on Wednesday to a multi-year project to create a digital version of the euro. An electronic equivalent of banknotes and coins, the digital euro will likely be a digital wallet that euro zone citizens can keep at the ECB. It is part of a drive by central banks to meet growing demand for electronic means of payment and tackle a boom in private sector digital currencies from Bitcoin to Facebook (NASDAQ:FB)’s proposed Diem. WHAT IS A DIGITAL EURO? It will be a means of payment that gives holders a claim against the ECB – like banknotes and coins, but in digital format. It will probably resemble an online bank account or digital wallet held directly at the ECB rather than at a commercial institution. This is a fundamental difference because the ECB cannot run out of euros, making its digital currency intrinsically safer than any private sector counterpart. Important Data: EURO ZONE Industrial Production (MoM) (May) today at 5:00 this time estimated -0.2%, previously which was 0.8%. US PPI (MoM) (Jun) today at 8:30 this time estimated 0.6%, previously which was 0.8%. CANADA BoC Interest Rate Decision today at 10:00 this time estimated 0.25%, previously which was 0.25%.
