I'm now regulated and have to follow strict rules for trading, all my trades have to be approved and I have to hold for 30 day minimums. This process is painful, because our trading commissions are ridiculously high with my firm to deliberately discourage trading. If I gave $100,000 to my brother and told him to manage it, would I get sent to jail? Where specifically is the law regulating this? Am I just f'd no matter what?
