Ethics - trading restrictions

I came across a restriction on trading for personal account but can’t recall the detail. Is there some 5 or day period post a change/new recommendation that you are not allowed to trade on personal account??

Yes. Believe the reccomended minimum is 5 days but anyway you have a duty to put clients first then employers and yourself last. Trading before or straight after a revised stock recommendation would (likely) not give customers a chance to act on the info and therefore is negative to them and a violation of whichever standard loyalty is (I should and did used to know this).

cool thanks

if no firm or regulatrory policy… cfai recommends 30 days before report release and 5 days after report release…

ahmad, where is it in the text? doesn’t specifiy number of days under blackout period…(pg 96/97)
