I've been reading some interesting articles about how Goldman Sacs and other major banks are changing the leverage rules for their hedge fund clients and Broker Dealers. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/10/11/21429/507 Can anyone who trades prop with a registered broker dealer comment on whether their buying power has been altered? Seems the amount of leverage available to professional traders and hedge funds is being tightened. Curious if this is impacting any of the firms often mentioned on this board like... Bright Trading Genesis Accent etc.
