One way to navigate turbulent financial markets? Follow Will Smith and his crowd of fractional investors.

The social-investing app Public, whose backers include the Hollywood actor as well as the NFL defensive end J.J. Watt, says it has seen a 70% increase in interaction among its members as they turn to the startup to guide them through the worst rout in equity markets since the financial crisis.

Speaking with MarketWatch from his apartment in New York, Jannick Malling, co-CEO of Public, said members have been opening the app three times more frequently since the coronavirus crisis escalated in the U.S. two weeks ago.

“When the market dropped, we saw novice investors looking to see what more experienced investors were doing, instead of just following human intuition to immediately start panic selling,” Malling said.

Public allows anyone to buy a slice of a share in any publicly traded U.S. company for as little as $5, commission-free. Members can follow a social feed allowing them to exchange ideas among friends and see which stocks more experienced investors are putting there money in, which Malling said is part of the Public mission to build “financial literacy for the next generation.”

“Some people are intimated by investing in the stock market and might not have the money to buy into highly valued stocks like Amazon AMZN, +0.81% , which on Wednesday closed at $1,907.70 a share, or Google parent Alphabet GOOG, +1.74% GOOGL, +1.67% , whose Class A shares ended the day at $1,102.10.

“Public opens that process up to more people by letting them invest alongside a community,” Malling said. “It’s a bit like a cross between a social network and a stock brokerage.” Typical users are in their early 20s, but Malling said the social-investing app has attracted a diverse community.

In March, the app saw a 50% increase in new members. “In moments like this, when the market falls, some people might want to invest more,” Malling added.

The current market volatility VIX, -7.79% has seen a big move by Public’s members into ETFs. They are also viewing the app’s “themes section” more, which, much like a Spotify SPOT, -1.85% playlist, allows them a venue to learn about new sectors and industries. “Fighting disease,” for instance, includes companies involved in efforts to cure cancer and other diseases, while the theme “the future is female” comprises a collection of all S&P 500–listed companies run by women CEOs.

The social-investing app earns revenue from lending stock to short sellers, as well as from interest on the cash balances in accounts.

In January, Public raised $15 million in a Series B financing round, which was led by venture-capital funds Accel and Greycroft. YouTube creator and entrepreneur Casey Neistat, Girlboss founder Sophia Amoruso and Japanese soccer star Keisuke Honda were among those who participated in the funding round.

Malling said Public plans to use the cash to grow its community and will be adding new features that allow members to find more ways to connect.

Update the OpenFaaS Watchdog to introduce two new endpoints:

This should check for the lock file at /tmp/.lock – use the existing behavior for this.

Vendor Prometheus go library and expose:

Add a Prometheus counter:

This counter should represent the requests/second.

Need to review Prometheus naming guidelines before approving the name function_invocation for the bucket. https://prometheus.io/docs/practices/naming/

Once complete – make equivalent change to the of-watchdog here:

Отзывы о JustForex

Брокер не отвечает на мои письма. Они обещали торговый бонус в 700 долларов США за инвестирование, если я внесу 1500 долларов США. Я сделал депозит, но они не дали бонус. Также телефон, который указан на веб-сайте, не отвечает. На сайте написано, что круглосуточная поддержка по телефону. Живой чат не работает. Я чувствую себя очень неуверенно.

Здравствуйте, Falkir! Не могли бы вы уточнить, где вам предлагали такой маленький бонус? Все клиенты, которые сделали депозит на сумму более 500 USD получают бонус в 115% — в вашем случае это было бы 1725 USD. И получить его очень просто — нужно просто нажать кнопку в вашем Личном Кабинете. Наша поддержка по телефонам и на сайте работает круглосуточно. Но если вдруг вам там не отвечают – напишите на [email protected] и укажите ваш номер счета в MetaTrader. С вами свяжутся в тот же день и наш отдел жалоб возьмет ваше обращение на особый контроль.

Здравствуйте, Falkir77! Прежде всего — скажите пожалуйста, кто вам обещал такой маленький бонус? Уже почти год как мы ввели бонус в 115% для всех депозитов больше 500 USD. В вашем случае он составляет 1725 USD и получить его можно в Личном Кабинете. Процедура полностью автоматизирована, вам нужно только нажать кнопку. Что касается поддержки — она работает по телефону и в чате круглосуточно. Но если вам вдруг не отвечают, или же поддержка не хочет вам помогать — пишите на [email protected] и указывайте свой номер счета в MetaTrader. С вами свяжутся в тот же день и отдел жалоб возьмет ваше обращение на особый контроль.

Здравствуйте, Falkir77! Все клиенты, которые сделали депозит на 500 USD и больше, получают бонус в 115%. В вашем случае, он составит 1725 USD. Получить его можно в Личном Кабинете, просто нажав кнопку. Что касается поддержки — она работает круглосуточно, на русском и английском. Но если вам вдруг не отвечают, пишите на [email protected] и указывайте номер счета в MetaTrader. Отдел жалоб возьмет ваше обращение на особый контроль и ответит в тот же день.

Я сделал депозит в 10 000. Я торговал и затем сделал запрос на вывод и ждал моего вывода 11 000 чуть более двух недель. Мой менеджер сказал, что это займет не более 3-6 дней. Он больше не отвечает на мои электронные письма. Я не знаю, как получить эти деньги с этого счета.

Без сомнения, JustForex – дипломатическая афера. Я положил 1000 долларов на свой счет, через несколько месяцев я решил снять с них 400 долларов, они вычитали сумму с моего торгового счета, но до сих пор я их так и не получил. А между прочим прошло уже 2 месяца. Они только продолжают обещать, что я скоро получу деньги в ответ на мои вопросы. Подобных брокеров следует привлечь к ответственности за обман общественности.

Знаете целыми днями просиживаю на всех ресурсах связанных с Форексом. и понимаю что это все. Не только меня кинули, они реально гонят. видимо уже тысячи людей пострадали, саппорт отмалчивается (хотя неделю назад еще подавал признаки жизни). Понятно, что свои две з/п я уже не увижу которые сдуру вложил в JustForex. Но так ведь нельзя. С таким мошенничеством и откровенным бредом первый раз встречаюсь. До сих пор не могу поверить. Но надеюсь на лучшее. Да и еще – кому надо скрины предоставлю -пишите.

Здесь суть не в отдельно взятых услугах компании, а в ее платежеспособности вцелом и если уже внутри разлад, то неужели вы наивно надеетесь, что вас он не коснется. Поэтому подумайте 10 раз прежде чем полагаться на какие-то сомнительные компании как эта..

Сколько же мусора можно найти, если вбить JustForex отзывы. Реальные люди пишут одно, боты – совсем другое. Иногда читаешь работы пиар-отдела компании и удивляешься тому, насколько приторно-неприятными получаются их отзывы. С их слов JustForex хоть к ране можно прикладывать, таки они все из себя замечательные. Аферы, за которые JustForex подвергся санкциям очень похожи на те, о которых пишут бывшие клиенты. Это гораздо больше похоже на правду, нежели слащавые комментарии от самого брокера.

а правда, что JustForex начал сворачивать деятельность в России? у меня там деньги, бежать выводить или как?а вот я думаю что то в последнее время испортились совсем, с выводом задержки, ордера исполняются с замедлением.это как понимать признаки кризиса?

ребята сторонитесь этой кухни. и не верьте их байкам! Деньги они либо вообще не выплачивают, либо с большой задержкой!

Денег они так просто не отдадут. Как только запрашиваешь вывод – удаляют тебя из контактов в скайпе, игнорируют письма и звонки

И банят по айпи)) хз чувак, выводил сколько, порядок был может ты верификацию не прошел? необходимо прислать джасту свои доки, тогда они апрувят тебя. такие требования есть у любого брокера, абез данных можно денег поднять только в ломбарде))

за 8 месяцев активности у этого брокера не заметил серьёзных сбоев или желания не отдавать деньги. они зарабатывают на комиссиях с каждой сделки итак неплохо, брать и не отдавать вам нищебродам по 100 рублей это звучит странно.в таких случаях обычно трейдеры-чайники только кричат и пишут всё и везде, а хорошие комментарии никто не пишет. скажу так, Justforex среди большинства брокеров справляется с заявленными услугами нормально, добавляет обновления, крипту недавно примером. так что делайте выводы из собственных наблюдений и меньше слушайте агрессоров в комментариях (это вполне могут быть проделки конкурентов)

Ok so they have contacted me admitting they messed up again the bank information and sent it somewhere else, but eventhough they accept the fault is theirs they will only be willing to refund the money lost if the bank they sent the money to returns it.

If they accept their mistake shouldn’t they refund the money to the customer and solve their problem? why would I have to pay for their mistake

Apr 2, 2020 – 1 Star Have been client for over 2 years, I tried to withdraw money a couple of months ago and they messed up my intermediary bank information, basically they sent the money to another bank. They acknowledge their mistake and 3 weeks later the funds where returned to the account, had to pursue with other ticket the money they had taken for the mistake, about 50 dollars.
I was assured after several tickets and emails that the issue was solved and have proof of alllll the tickets.
Last week I decided to withdraw money again and it went smooth so I felt confident that actually the problem was solved, so I made another withdrawal attempt and guess what? they again changed my bank instructions and sent the money who knows where, I have cops of the swift messages.

So given this situation I don’t feel confortable working with them anymore, I want all my money so I ask for a withdrawal via Visa Direct, guess what it was denied, sooo I tried via my Skrill account, guess what. again denied.

So basicaly I can’t withdraw the money, Im out of money they sent to another bank and won’t be responsible for it, what can I do?, I wrote again and told them to chose the method to refund my money, I don’t care I want all my money back but they are yet to answer.

Their chat is useless for this cases, and their response time is beyond acceptable,

Please if someone can give me info on how to proceed to recover my money, I’d really appreciate it.

If you’re trying to withdraw from ICM, whatever method you choose will be rejected.

Emails to [email protected] will be returned with rejection message “receive rate too high”.

Impossible to speak to them.
Impossible to withdraw.

Apr 2, 2020 – 2 Stars IC Markets doesn’t have my vote anymore.

When the going gets tough, they widen spreads, for weeks on end.
They punt themselves as a market-leading broker, offering some of the best spreads in the industry, but this claim doesn’t hold.

Understandably, markets have been volatile. But traders talk, and not all brokers have resorted to the kinds of spreads IC Market currently offers.

IC Markets – review your claims and what you’re currently offering. There is a huge difference. You’ve lost me as a customer.

Now – to get my money out of my trading account, THAT’s another story! I will leave a separate review just for this. Makes me think ICM is going under?

On the 26th of March some traders may recall the spike down on the Gold pair . well if you dont you can check the charts on the day in question.

My gold trade parameters are as follows:
Entry :1607.08 , stop loss: 1621.85. Take profit: 1563.76.

however IC markets close my trade out @ 1604.89 , I hasten to add that they have offiially been in touch and have agreed that the closure should not have happened and i will be refunded however that was 4 working days ago and I am yet to receive my due profit.

It’s hard enough developing a proftable trading strategy but to have to circumvent unreliable brokers is just a different ball game entirely this is why i limit the amount I trade with them.

Forex Peace Army thanks for your platform

Sep 20, 2020 – 5 Stars IC Markets staff took the time to contact me and the ticket raised has been explained and resolved.

Follow up the case I posted before, ICMarkets agreed to compensate for my should-have profit position that they deleted. The compensated amount is not equal to the profit I should have, but it’s reasonable and acceptable. I appreciate their goodwill gesture.

Mar 30, 2020 – 1 Star I opened a Buy XAUUSD order at price 1516.10 at [2020.03.23 15:10:03]. Price was moving up and I was still holding that position.

Then suddenly, at [2020.03.26 07:23:00] their XAUUSD quoted price dropped dramatically to 1500.68 (about 1000 pips away from current market price) and hit my SL. This crazy price didn’t exist on the market actually. It’s an error from an liquidity provider.

Some brokers I trade with also had this error, but they fixed it for me by reverting back that Buy position to opening status as before and my Buy position was still having floating profit as normal.

I asked ICMarkets to do the same thing. They took a whole week to check the issue and finally only compensated my irrational loss and deleted my profit position, while that position should have a huge profit at the moment. Please note that my position was opening for 3 days before the error occurred, it was not opened at the error moment to take the advantage.

I’m so disappointed. I’m asking them to check the issue again. If they still steal my profits, I will take legal actions.

Reply by IC Markets submitted Apr 1, 2020 As mentioned, on 26/03/20 at 07:23 UTC we experienced an issue with off-market pricing and execution on all Gold symbols.

I not sure if any of you encounter this? My fund was not receive is almost 3 weeks and they provide me with ANR number which my bank said that they are unable to locate my fund. Recently I have issue withdrawal from IC is already quite a few time.

Jan 30, 2020 – 4 Stars After many emails with ic market, we manage to sort out the negative balance issue. Very glad that they willing to help look into. I will still continue trading with them.

Jan 15, 2020 – 1 Star Please note that IC market do not provide negative balance protection. My experience with them was always good but after this flash crash incident it change my trust with them. My stop loss was not trigger during that time due to flash crash and my account end up in negative. When I communicated with them they said they cannot do anything. But I saw they helping other customer restore their negative balance. It is very unfair. So please be aware of that. If you are trading with them you are putting yourself into more risk than other broker. Please do not be cheated by the word ECN. You do not know what you get yourself into.

Jan 11, 2020 – No Rating I have been with ic market for more than 1 year and was really disappointed to recently know that they do not have negative balance Protection. Due to recent flash crash on jpy my account in live 12 & 14 all got into negative and it did not trigger the SL. My other account on live 5 and 3 is fine. But overall as a trader i find it that ic market will not be a good plaform for trading because even you have stop loss you still have chance that your account goes to negative and they will just said is the you did not manage your risk well.

Personally think that even you manage trade with SL and there is still certain percentage that you will go in debt then this brokerage is a high risk broker because you do not know when you will get in debt with any of the flash crash. I propose if you wanna look for broker find those with negative balance Protection so that you have a ease of your mind in trading.

Hope those who read this review not to be the next disappointed customer. Please do not because they have low spread and true ecn mean they are good broker.
