            Pisani claims we'll see a risk on reflation trade. I don't feel like risk on. A lot of others don't either. Pop on emotion today. Later?

                        A small business IA doesn't have to take customer funds. The IA can simply trade the customer's acct. or advise the customer.

                            A S/W engr. can probably understand HFT decently without a lot of extra education. But even an EE might not. They take few S/W classes.

                                            Tech should benefit from QE as it exports a lot. A lower USD will make US tech exports more attractive.
