Should #smartcontract code execution always be dispostive? Can code execution actually bind participants if litigation is always available? Does extrinsic goverance of #blockchains that may alter #consensus governance weaken, or strengthen a protocol? Who should care? /1
Short answer- everyone. #Developers #investors & #lawyers all need to understand #blockchain & #smartcontract governance to understand what it means to build on top of others' tech. Can you patent new art built on a blockchain? Will your software work if the underlying chain /2
upgrades its code? What if the underlying blockchain forks? How can a #smartcontract advocate for or against software changes to underlying #blockchain system functionality? Is it worth investing in a project built on a frequently shifting foundation.... /3

Some pointers on #PersonalFinance
1) Highly #subjective - depends on earnings,savings & lifestyle. Don't clone approach . Take professional help, if needed.

2)Focus primarily on #skillsets in early years.Automatically #earnings increase. Big salary ,bigger savings.
3) Start #saving early on .
4) Incremental savings must be more than Incremental earnings.

5) Avoid #debt . But if necessary plan well & repay it early on . Beware of snowball effect.

6) Avoid instant #gratification. A lil' self restraint goes a long way in saving up .

7) #Leveraging is disastrous . Not advisable .

8) #ConcentratedPortfolio can backfire big time . Makes sense to go in for a diversified one.

9) #AssetAllocation is equally important .

10) #CreditCards if used sensibly are good ,else disastrous. Educate yourself.

$SPX #SP500 DTF #Update. Es la versión que la mayoría seguimos normalmente, donde están ponderadas la mayor parte en el sector tecnológico, es decir las $Faang ponderan casi el 50% en general... $AAPL, $AMZN, $FB, $NFLX y $GOOGL. Al caer el #Nasdaq arrastra al #Sp500... Entonces
lo que entra en duda es si el mercado realmente está cayendo como todos creen... Para eso tenemos que comparar con la ponderación que ejercen el resto de las empresas listadas, el índice es el #SP500EW, prácticamente estamos hablando de la versión equipo-ponderada del #Sp500
habitual... En términos generales es válido decir que este indice compone los 495 valores restantes considerado a las 500 empresas más importantes que reflejan el #SP500...

#TweetStorm - A Quick take on the new #SEBI circular. 1) The new rule states that a Multicap Fund needs to have 25% in #LargeCaps, 25% in #Midcaps. 25% in #Smallcaps. This needs to be aligned before January 2021.
Data Source - MoneyControl 2) The Total AUM of the Multi-Cap Funds is 1.53 lakh crores. 25% allocation to #Smallcap =38300 crores. Current Allocation= 11240 Crores. Potential Buying or Difference to be Aligned = 27062 crores.
3) Why is everyone going mad about it in #Whatsapp and #Twitter. Total Market Cap of 251st to 500th Company is 9 lakh crores. 27000 Cr implies 3% of Equity. In many of smallcaps promoters own 50-75%. That's like 10% of float buying theoretically. Source - AMFI.

As per @IndiaRatings #banks are likely to restructure up to ₹8.4 lakh crs of loans. Over 60% of ₹8.4 lakh crs could slip into the NPAs category, it added. We must keep a close watch on #mutualfunds having high exposure to such stressed #assets. #SaarthiZarooriHai @cafemutual
In spite of the fact that the expected quantitative effect of pressure that #mutualfunds may confront isn't known, #investors portfolio can be shielded from any plausible misfortunes emerging out of the exposure to stressed #assets. Select #DebtFunds after thorough evaluation.
On the background of the macro-economic challenges, COVID-19 emergency, & geopolitical strains; have such #investment portfolio that works under all #economic situations will be a reasonable strategy. But for the same #PlanZarooriHai & #SaarthiZarooriHai. @bsindia @NDTVProfit

According to @moneycontrolcom, the new #Margin rules launched by @SEBI_India would have long-term benefits at the cost of short-term decrease in volumes.

However, what do these changes entail for the #Investors and #Traders?

Thread (2/6)

➡ Buying and selling of #EquityShares will require upfront margin.

Eg. In case shares of #RelianceIndustries worth INR 1,00,000 are to be sold, applicable margin (Eg. INR 20,000) is required to be maintained upfront.

#SEBI #ShareMarket #ShareMarketNews
Thread (3/6)

➡ In case of delivery trade, trader should deposit excess of investment amt. & margin within 2 business days from purchase date.

REF: Previous tweet, the trader must deposit INR 80,000 within 2 business days from purchase date.

#investing during volatile times are challenging
You have to invest in cheap and what has relative value and if you can manage Geo political environment, you have a winner in your hand
The last 20 years especially since 2009 was all about growth stocks and not about value buys
The #Fed , the #ECB, and all central banks were slowly destroying the cost of capital and people were being pushed more towards risk assets , these accelerated tremendously in 2020
Growth was nearly a passive investment, all money managers were pushed into the corner of ..
.. investing room , to give an example consider ETF, the more capital that goes into it, it triggers all of the algorithms to say, stock sector is above its 52-day moving average, and by default it will allocate another one percent

(1/THREAD) Sentiment: One might think, with the #market erasing all its losses, that sentiment would have gotten somewhat lopsided, but it hasn’t. Here, flows into equity funds & ETFs & money market funds. #equities #SPX
2/ The rush into #cash has barely been undone, while #investors aren’t exactly rushing into #equities. While cash sitting in money market funds has dropped slightly from nearly $5 trillion to about $4.55 trillion, it has fallen from 17% to 13% as a percent of equity market cap.
3/ Looking at the percent of equity market capitalization is probably a better way to slice the data as a proxy for sentiment and it has matched almost perfectly the spread on high-yield corporate #bonds. The rest of the sentiment picture is mixed too.

One noteworthy aspect of the #COVID19 market has been the success with which the #Fed & other #centralbanks have been able to stem the “Covid Crash” and then help control the recovery. The current backdrop reminds me a bit of the 1942-1946 #QE cycle. Let’s take a look. (THREAD)
1/ After the Great Depression, the government went into high gear during WWII and, in the process, ran up huge government debt. Federal debt as a percent of #GDP jumped to 116% from 39% during the 1st half of the 1940s.
2/ Not only did the Fed monetize the debt by increasing its balance sheet 10-fold, it repressed the entire #yieldcurve by capping short rates at 3/8% & long rates at about 2.5%. #Inflation ran up but, with the #Fed repressing rates at low levels, real rates went negative.

#Goal Based Investing vs #PortfolioProtection Debate: Sharing my response to that debate: 👇

I have a totally different take in this Goal based investing and communication with Investors.
My 35 years of experience is showing me totally diametrically opposite conclusion to this. Only my observations, please ignore if you do not agree:

My belief is that Goal based investing is only good on paper and may be to get some discipline in Investment habits.
But unfortunately most Investors do not follow it. For example at current juncture, when they have existential crisis, how many will continue on the path of goal based investing? Many have stopped SIPs, many have withdrawn and redeemed.

What happens to their Goals now??

In the interest of #investors.
We need to assess our #risktolerance & find out our #lossaversion levels.
Risk tolerance means how much risk one is willing to take with their investments . Do you start selling out of panic the moment stocks fall or hold patiently ? + Image
Loss aversion means to be fearful of losses & holding to loser stocks in the hope that they shall fly someday. The delay we make in facing "losses" by simply postponing selling our junk/loser stocks. Ultimately we end up losing more money than before +
3/3 Equity is subject to market risks. True, that greater the risk , higher the return .But how much of a risk is one willing to take ?After a point capital protection becomes paramount.
Calculated bets (after knowing reality)make more sense than blind cloning of a portfolio.End.

All categories of #mutualfunds (including ETFs) would be covered under #stampduty charges for units issued in demat & non-demat form. It will cover equity, derivatives & currency trades. Stamp Duty = Direct Tax levied by the govt. u/s 3 of Indian Stamp Act, 1899. @AmarUjalaNews
#StampDuty charges:

Equity (delivery) - 0.015% or ₹1,500 per crs on buy-side

#Equity (intra-day) - 0.003% or ₹300 per crs

#Futures (equity & #commodity) - 0.002% or ₹200 per crs

#Options (equity & commodity) - 0.003% or ₹300 per crs

#Currency - 0.001% or ₹10 per crs
- The #stampduty will also be applicable on #AlternativeInvestmentFunds (AIFs)

- Impact is more on the short term #investments by the #investors

- No stamp duty on #redemption of #mutualfund units.

- Impact at #portfolio level too i.e when fund manager executes transaction.

1/ The financial modeling thread for #startups and #founders

I put together a series of lecture notes from my #financial #modeling #bootcamp at @TheNestiO in year end 2019

2/ Modeling revenues for #startups and #founders.

Build models for founders not #investors. Use models to test run your businesses in #Excel.

Faster, cheaper and less painful than doing it in real life…
3/ Unit #economics for startups and founders

Why #LTV > X * CAC is the first relationship you need to learn before you scale.

Also if you can't make money on a single order, best of luck with the next 10,000…

Parlez-vous racisme [Thread] 👇

Current user base ~1 million @parler_app's
"#DeclarationOfInternetIndependence" is not the first we've seen & likely not the last:… with intriguing but unspecified notions such as: "The People, not the #TechTyrants, must...
...share in the value of #monetizing our data". Hmm... "share" how, exactly?

Parler is organised as a (US) Limited Liability Company, so is every user a #member? Or is that privilege reserved for its #owners, John Matze & Jared Thomson? And their #investors?

So, @RWE is trying to gain public support for its #LNG terminals in Germany by leading us to believe there is a #hydrogen future. Let us unpack this a little (THREAD):…

@peteraltmaier @SvenjaSchulze68 @GheorghiuAndy @ConstZerger
1/ The #LNG infrastructure planned is not ready for H2. @TUHamburg explains that you need a temperature of <-250C for liquified H2, vs <-100C for liquified gas, we are yet to see plans that show the design can cope. Well explained here in @TspBackgroundEK…
2/ Shipping H2 is something that people working in the #maritime industry are wary of. It is highly flammable and the safety risks associated would drive up insurance premia. Given low energy density, you'd need many more loads for same value --> expensive.

#Trend Following

Instead of trying to predict #market direction, trend following reacts to movements whenever they occur. This enables a focus on actual price #risk, while avoiding becoming #emotionally connected with direction, duration, and fundamental expectations.
Trend following works because you don’t try to outthink it. You are a trend #follower, not a trend #predictor.
But why should trends continue?

If #prices initially under react to to either good or bad news, trends tend to continue as prices slowly move to fully reflect changes in #fundamental value.

#Day #Trading #Options

#Basic Concept - options day trading focuses only on the underlying #mathematics. It does not rely on any #financial predictions, company results, or market direction.
A #realistic approach is to take advantage of occasional pricing inefficiencies that arise in the #options market.
These #distortions can be related to #earnings announcements, expiry week, weekend #theta decay, intraday implied #volatility swings, differences between overnight and #intraday volatility, or news and #rumors.
