New York CNN —Buying or selling a stock is about to get a lot snappier starting next Tuesday. But that doesn’t mean it’ll get smoother, at least right away — and some financial firms are preparing to handle any possible bumpiness. Clearinghouses, which sit between buyers and sellers, collect margins from traders as evidence that they can afford to make the transaction. Baird has had a T+1 committee in place since last summer to ensure such hiccups don’t happen, Lee said. “The existing two-day period to settle trades exposes investors and the industry to unnecessary risk and is ripe for change,” Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev said in a February 2021 release.

Earlier this week surged more than 20% over two days, as expectations of an SEC approval of ether ETF applications changed abruptly. By contrast, in the weeks leading up to approvals for bitcoin ETFs, the SEC was reported to be engaging actively with fund issuers. Coinbase , which may be a beneficiary of ether ETFs, was more than 1% in premarket trading, while Robinhood nearly 1%. Cryptocurrency prices, including ether's, may also be tempered by the Thursday afternoon stock market sell-off.

There's a lot to like right now in the fixed income market, according to BlackRock's Rick Rieder. He finds European credit, both investment grade and BB-rated high yield, attractive in part because of the strong U.S. dollar. They have also added high quality CLOs and high-quality European securitized assets. "We're getting more yield than BB high yield. We're getting almost as much yield as full high yield — and our volatility is 60% of that market, just because we diversified," Rieder said.

The CEO spoke of "big opportunities across our products" for generative AI and promised that Apple is "well positioned" to take on the space.

The ex-husband of a former BP mergers and acquisitions manager was sentenced to two years in federal prison for insider trading that netted him $1.76 million after he eavesdropped on her work calls about the oil giant buying another company. The ex-husband, Tyler Loudon, also was sentenced to one year of supervised release after his prison term and fined $10,000 by U.S. District Court Judge Sim Lake in Houston on Monday. The prison sentence was at the bottom end of the 24-to-30-month range requested by federal prosecutors. His purchases started after he secretly listened to his wife's work calls about BP buying TravelCenters and later discussed the deal with her in "normal" married-couple kinds of conversations, according to court records. Loudon's wife, who was not accused of wrongdoing, reported his actions to her BP supervisor, but she ended up getting fired later, court records show.
