A move to the left seems almost inevitable, whether you are for it or not. The wealth disparity in this country has become unbalanced. As Hedge Fund King Ray Dalio currently says, capitalism is not working for a large segment of the population. If you look back in American History, the last 'Gilded Age' was followed by the 'Progressive Era'. I"m not making any personal points here, I just think there is a decent chance that for better or worse, the same cycle will repeat. It certainly didn't help that ten years of a bull market that only benefitted the wealthy was followed by the Tax Cuts that turned into nothing more then corporate welfare at the worst time. The pendulum is going to swing back.

So the question is how far left will we go? We will have to see.

Meanwhile, I've been waiting to see if the Dems start to renew calls for a financial transaction tax. I figured it was only a matter of time:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-02-06/democrats-target-wall-street-with-financial-trade-tax-proposal.

This is what happens when you have a rigged market that is not allowed to go down but only the wealthy get to play.

so if i buy and sell 1 ES contract which has a notional value of $135,000, I have to pay $270 in tax? (0.1% tax)

what?????

so i'd have to go 22 ticks in profit just to break-even? surely that can't be right.

but in the case that FTT actually passes in the US, it should only increase costs for US traders, right? if i am for example, a Singapore citizen, trading through a US futures broker, would the FTT affect me or is it something that's passed along to anyone placing trades through a US exchange?

I think they are talking primarily about stock/equity trades. I'm not quite sure how they would address leveraged instruments. Some versions of a FTT just want to tax HFTs. Its way too early to know what it would look like in the end.

In the event of a EU financial transaction tax I think you will find that Switzerland immediately becomes the trading hub of Europe. I don't say this flippantly. I believe most if not all European exchanges already have in place a "disaster plan" similar to this.

I believe the same applies in the US. The exchanges would move off shore.

Its good to know they have 'disaster' plans, but its hard to imagine the NYSE, NASDAQ & CME moving off shore. I'm sure they would hope that just the threat of moving off shore would be enough to prevent such a tax. At any rate, even if the exchanges did move off shore, wouldn't they find another way to tax traders? Maybe through their brokers? Really, the whole trading ecosystem would have to move offshore. Worst case scenario laws then get passed prohibiting US traders from trading offshore exchanges but I think at that point they would cause the whole system to collapse.

Well, nothing's gonna happen for the next two years at least. Then we'll see.
