Default Stock Exchange Crash

Do stock exchanges like ETrade ever crash? From issues like a lot of traffic / trades going on for the day.

E-Trade is a trading platform, or type of broker, not so much an exchange.

SIPC (The Securities Investor Protection Corp) is a government agency that regulates these types of entities. They are extremely strict, and their liquidity/capitalization requirements are such it's doubtful they would "crash" like what you saw during the financial crisis of 2007–2008. This is also due to the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act which put in additional safeguards to prevent that type of thing from happening again.

Of course you can't really predict where the market will be going. Some traders will make money when they are long, and others will take profits on shorts.

Remember this old saying: Bulls make money, Bears make money, and Pigs get slaughtered!

If you mean website trouble like Coinbase likes to have during volatility... probably.

By crash in 07-08 it was some sort of market manipulation?

Coinbase crashed recently, went offline temporarily right as the price plummeted. If ETrade can possibly go offline Coinbase can. There are ETrade status websites as some evidence it's possible. Coinbase should be refunding eveyone their transaction fees as they are providing a $hit platform that crashes at crucial moments...

Default Re: Stock Exchange Crash

I think when we talk about "Crash" it means either a site failure, or a market "meltdown" of sorts. They are two different things, but could be related as a result of a panic, or mass market selloff. Sort of akin like the run on banks (panics that occurred between 1929 & 1931).

If a site like ET or other large broker like Charles Schwab, etc gets overwhelmed during a market panic, it's very likely the market will enact a trading curb, sometimes referred to as a "circuit breaker". This is a financial regulatory instrument that is in place to prevent stock market crashes from occurring. For example, if the DJIA was to decline more than 10% within an hour, you can bet your rear end the SEC would order one!

These limits were put in place after Black Monday in 1987 in order to reduce market volatility and massive panic sell-offs. There have been additional safeguards put in force, not just for the NYSE/NASDAQ but the CME/COMEX, and other financial exchanges (not just equities, bonds, but commodities as well)

I'm sure sites like E-Trade have lots of safeguards in place and their own set of "circuit breakers" to avoid stuff from getting too hot. It's a tightly regulated industry, and lots of eyes are watching things.

It makes total sense because I said if the "crash" wasnt a coincidence it would prevent mass sell off and prices would maintain a higher bottom line!

Coinbase is a bunch of crap.

I'm ashamed to say that I recommended them back in the day to buy BTC. That turned out to be a mistake since they make the whole process of enrolling to damn difficult with their endless security checks, verifications, holds, and other games they play. I once had my limit slashed for no reason. The first support rep said it was a system error, another told me it was due to "some security hold" but couldn't explain further. I called yet again and got a different answer altogether.

One of my buddies once had a $400 payment held by them for two months and couldn't give an explanation why. He ended up having to dispute the transaction with his bank to get the money back. Coinbase support is run by a bunch of morons. They are even worse than PayPal IMHO.

The more you use CB the more they like you. I've read it other places and noticed it myself. A couple weeks ago they bumped my instant debit card limit from $500 to $5000. Luckily I haven't had any trouble with them yet other than KYC being a PITA in the beginning.

No doubt they've been purposely causing "outages" for years now.

I cant wait for another 1987 like stock market crash,where can we order one?
There is nothing wrong with our economy,but James Baker threatened the Japanese that he will let the US$ sink further vis-a-vis the Japenese yen.
The US 30 years treasury bond yield exceeded 10% and all the money managers saw it a as a gift of a lifetime,whether thru human or program trading,they sell stocks to buy bonds.
Do you ever watch the Wentworth commercial late at night-It is your money and you want it NOW !!!!

BTW,what do you guys think of this Saturday talk between Trump and Xi?
Xi promises to buy more US agricultural products,I assume it will be soy beans and pork.
Pork price could go thru the roof as Chinese pigs are being slaughtered due to swine flu epidemic.
And Trump relaxes restrictions on Huawei,and no tarriff for the 300 billions dollars imports.
It does not sound like a big win,unless there is more coming !

Those commercials make me sick. All they're doing is encouraging more people to start frivolous lawsuits so they can live off of JG Wentworth money rather than having to work.

I bet JG is making a killing though. A company called "peachtree" recently started airing ads for the same service, and it feels like they're also run by JG. If that's the case JG is launching new companies to corner off the lawsuit buy-out business.

Edit : Just confirmed my gut feeling is correct. JG Wentworth and Peachtree = JGWPT. J.G. Those guys have a monopoly right now on buying up lawsuits.

It's the insurance company's money and WE WANT IT NOW!

Wentworth aint stupid,when GE wants to dispose its insurance business,Wentworth bought but refused one product line-long term health care for those in nursing home.
Back then,actuarials did not expect us to live that long and medical care aint that expensive like these days with all the fancy machines and prescription drug.
Those who enroll early in the program paying $80-$400 a month are still alive and in nursing homes,compliment of GE ,one woman said she paid $34K in premium and now it has so far cost GE millions.
There are also some who have to drop out as they cant afford to keep up with the premium.

Cash app is next best IMO if you have a card or bank account to buy with.

After that, LBC/paxful but buying from individuals on sites like those has become a huge hassle in recent years. Sellers there will want an ID selfie and background check a lot of the time.

I must have come across individuals selling fraction of their bitcoin,could be on Craigslist and some are willing to accept Paypal,but more ask for cash/check.
Come across some interesting information,a company called Gold Money in Canada,it trades as XAU on Toronto Exchange,you can move out of precious metal into most major currencies.
The actual gold is held in vaults managed by Brinks.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic but I would never trust it. It's too easy for whatever company you're dealing with to lie about their reserves. There was an episode of American Greed about a guy from my state who ran a huge precious metals scam after the 2008 financial crisis. He conned hundreds of older people into buying silver "safely stored in his secure facility." He didn't really have the metals. It turns out he was issuing certificates for silver that didn't exist.

And it was easy for him to do considering the tight security that's normal for precious metal storage facilities. He basically told investors it would compromise security if he let them see the silver they were investing in, but they should buy anyway because the silver price will go up for sure, lol.

EDIT: his name is Ronnie Gene Wilson, his company was "Atlantic Bullion & Coin, Inc", and it's episode 7-8 of AG.



EDIT 2 : It reminds me of the doubt people have always had about Tether (the crypto, USDT), their reserves, and their inability to audit themselves.

if XAU is listed on Toronto Exchange,it would be audited every year,there is another Canadian company which deals in silver,cant recall its name.
But the ETF called Gold or GLD has enough gold stashed away .
There is a company in Florida,what it does is that it has either an interest or a working relationship with goldmining company I forget what country in central or south America and will sell you the gold they mine,$25k is the minimum.
Dont remember how much is the discount,something like 35% but there is a lead time..
But how can one trust them?They advertise in WSJ
