Trading Policy
Briefing.com is a leading provider of accurate, unbiased financial and investment analysis. Trading by our personnel which is improper or which merely appears to be improper could harm our high reputation for the integrity of our information and analysis.

Employees are not permitted to trade stocks, ETFs, commodities, bonds, foreign exchange, or derivatives of such, for speculative purposes during hours when the employee is working for Briefing.com, either at the office or remotely. “Speculative purposes” means any transaction intended to create a position for less than two weeks, whether in stocks, futures, options, or other instruments or derivatives.

Briefing.com allows a limited number of employees and consultants assigned to Briefing.com products focusing on trading (1), for which speculative trading calls are part of the product, to engage in short-term speculation in stocks and derivatives. These employees often take positions in the trades that are recommended in the product. These employees are strictly prohibited, however, from conducting trades in a manner designed to induce personal profit to pre-existing positions. In particular, “front-running” is strictly prohibited. The employees and consultants that are permitted to conduct speculative trading can be recognized on the site as those that produce comments using the following ticker symbols:

Employee #1: SCALP, CRYPTO
Employee #2: CHART
Employee #3: BLUEX, MOMOX, QUANT
Employee #4: CMDTY
Consultant #1: BETAX
Consultant #2: TECHT

(1) Briefing.com Trader, Briefing.com Institutional, and Briefing.com Professional.
