  25. That new 0.1% tax they’re talking about for trades...Is it 0.1% of the cost of the stock or is it 0.1% of the gain from the trade? (22/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I looked on CNBC and Bloomberg and I scoured the Internet for a while. I can’t find any of the specifics just a bunch of what’s basically major news outlets parroting each other. If it’s 0.1% on the cost of the shares then it’s the end of the world as we know it. If it’s 0.1% on the gain from the trade then it’s still just not quite reasonable. Which is it? And below is some copy pasta from CNBC because the post has to have 500 characters. We are CNBC and we are dumb we think stocks go up but you should buy silver because by then and also gold is a soup. Did you know panic market explode capacity buffet indicator. We think we’re smart. If we get our facts wrong that’s always someone else’s fault. Biden is a munchkin. Also our network isn’t responsible for news content being accurate because we just don’t try that hard. Recession dilemma it’s always the poors fault for not working hard enough. By the way blame Mr Rogers for teaching people to like themselves the way they are instead of beating themselves up to try to conform to impossible standards to get by in a world with a broken system. We like Bush. Also that will be the end of this news segment because no one else has provided their payment yet for us to present bogus news to sway public opinion in their favor. The end.   submitted by   /u/TheSqueezeHasSquozen [link]   [comments]
