Hey guys, first time poster, long time reader. I have a bit of a regulatory question, and I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but I'll ask anyway. I'm thinking about accepting a position as a junior buy-side equity analyst and was wondering if anybody knows about some of the rules regarding the trading of my account (I have an Ameritrade acount). I'm pretty green to the industry and haven't asked anybody at work because I haven't started yet. But say I'm researching a stock, and I think it looks really attractive and would like to buy it for my own account. Can I buy it, even if my boss recommends the stock for our firm's portfolio? I mean, I don't know if our orders would move the market at all or not, and I'm trading with a long-term horizon, so I wouldn't be trading in-and-out of positions really rapidly, so...is this a big deal at all?
