Remember, MO functions like Risk works extensively with FO functions. So you're telling me that MAS choses to stay blind to this very obvious loophole? Btw, this also applies to all MAS exempted buy-side firms. All are subjected to the same compliance checks.

30 days holding period is true but come on you're telling me the FO guys who have practically spent most of their waking houes doing financial modelling (IB) and industry and stock research (S&T) chooses to buy meme stocks because some patterns or lines tell them to buy? So when it comes to their personal finances, they chose to forget their intellectual rigor when it most matters?

If you wanna do day or swing trading, be my guest. But EHM would always prevail in developed markets and you'll eventually be on the losing end. Go to any brokerage and the statistics are telling. 70%+ of all retail traders lose money. Retail traders are the very people using these backward technical analysis models. I don't care who you are, whether you are one of the 20+% retail investor not losing money. If you're speculating on meme stocks like DWAC where all the dumb money are, probabilistically you're gonna end up 1 of the 70+%.

TLDR: You sure the hell don't work in any of these banks, let alone in the financial sector.
I'm not the original poster but some banks have different rules for Public-Facing(Front Office) Vs Non-Public Facing.E.g They erect a virtual china wall etc. I now work for a local bank and MO and BO can trade without any restrictions as long as they use the company's brokerage account. A different set of rules apply for the FO. One of the IBs I worked when I graduate only allows MO and BO to trade and we must transfer all our holdings to their designated brokerage.

For me I simply cant take away trading from my life, it helps to bring joy and destress me from work, so choosing to go away from FO is a natural choice.

So I choose to move away from FO, no regrets.

Disclaimer: only for US big 3 BBs
Absolute rubbish... There's a reason why a bulk of the ops people are looking to move into FO. There's a slim chance of a 120k maybe for 1 out of 100 ops monkeys. To the people looking to move into BB ops, please just go to glassdoor and search operations analyst salaries. Take the average and Add in 1-5% increment yearly for accurate salary trajectory.
