Anyone in finance industry or role where your trading isn’t limited? I took a new job and can’t trade at the new firm. Really not pleased with it, I am younger and enjoy trading options

Did you not know that when you took the role? It’s finance, it‘a not uncommon to have those restrictions. Consultants and public accountants are subject to it too sometimes.


For what it’s worth, I’ve worked in commercial real estate lending and I haven’t had any restrictions on my trading, other than verbal advice to avoid my own company’s stock since I’m in a sales role

Yeah my last job I had no restrictions, smaller firm. Current job at large institution, highly restricted (emphasis on highly) They didn’t tell me until I was a week into the job, and I got an email about it. I shared that options trading was my main hobby and everything too 😅

Public sector consulting isn’t limited and I doubt any corporate finance job is either. Although you’d probably be taking a pay cut for the ladder.

Don’t you get to invest in your company’s products? Why not eat your own dog food?

I mean they’re options, so it’s more targeted you know? Different tool for a different job. If I like company X and can only trade within certain restrictions like holding period and approval of trades, that means I’d be bound to leaps. Which, is a different strategy altogether than say swing trading during earnings season for some 1000% options. If you are stuck using some random product your company offers then the volume will be different, the catalysts will be different, and the volatility will be different. Apples to oranges in terms of purpose and exposure to particular factors (which I am more interested and experienced in personally.) So the dog food is fine and all but that’s just not what I want to eat haha

How can you not trade as an FA? You don’t have inside knowledge and your client base isn’t businesses

I don’t disagree but sadly that ain’t how she goes
