So buy more AAPL stock tomorrow morning, on sale.
And as sales are picking up, just before Christmas.
Read the post about COR Clearing, the tiny clearing broker in the MidWest who manipulated news today increasing margin requirements on Apple stock. No sizable clearing broker or wall street firm has done such.
you got day traders using enormous leverage to trade every day. Thats over with the rise to 60% margin. They got skin in the game now and the stock thank goodness will perhaps trade on its fundamentals not day traders. this hurts today but a good think long term. And split the dam stock already
I tend to agree. Margin trading in Apple appears to be largely responsible for the extreme volatility, so I'm in favor of tightening the margin rules in an effort to eliminate these wild swings. If you want to own Apple stock, you should use your own money to buy it. Don't borrow money from a brokerage house.
