July MISIG Monthly Meeting
Maryland Investment SIG 16 July 2014 Bethesda Library 7400 Arlington Rd
Agenda for 16 July 2014 - Bethesda Public Library - 7:30 pm
The evening will revolve around two topics, each led by a knowledgeable presenter:
7:30 pm "Fixed Income Investing" will be presented by Liz Mulcahy, a bond specialist with Charles Schwab Inc and works out of their Bethesda MD office. Banks currently offer depositors close to zero interest, so finding alternative investments is a widespread need.
9:00 "Predatory Behavior in the Equity Markets and a discussion of Michael Lewis' Book, Flash Boys. Seasoned investor and researcher David Navari will share his insights on how certain national brokerage companies "sell" your trades to high frequency traders who then are free to place their own trades to front run the trades of individual investors. Although the book was published only recently, 31 March 2014, the U.S. Senate has already held hearings in mid-June to discover the extent of this practice. David has drilled down to get at the heart of this problem and will share his findings and what individuals can do about it.
