US Chamber of Commerce Facebook Ad Backfires

With the US Chamber of Commerce (202-659-6000) recently announcing a seven digit advertising purchase featuring Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) trying to sell the illegal immigrant amnesty legislation found in Senate Bill 744 to conservatives, some of the ads are running on Facebook and receiving the opposite response the Chamber of Commerce and Marco Rubio hoped to elicit.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

Raleigh, NC, USA (June 25, 2013) — CONTACT: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) Press@alipac.us / (866) 703-0864

With the US Chamber of Commerce (202-659-6000) recently announcing a seven digit advertising purchase featuring Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) trying to sell the illegal immigrant amnesty legislation found in Senate Bill 744 to conservatives, some of the ads are running on Facebook and receiving the opposite response the Chamber of Commerce and Marco Rubio hoped to elicit.

At the time of this release, the Facebook ad tied to the US Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook page and launched on June 24 had received over 1,100 comments of which more than 95% are negative in nature! A review of the comments makes it clear that the ad has backfired and that the vast majority of people commenting oppose the bill Marco Rubio and the Chamber of Commerce are attempting to pass!

“It is clear from the fervent angry responses on Facebook that the US Chamber of Commerce ad has backfired and that Americans exposed to the ad are going to hold this support for amnesty for illegal aliens against the group in the future,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “We need to find out where all this money the Chamber is spending is coming from and work as a nation to put an end to these groups trying to sell the American public a bill that will cost Americans our jobs, wages, taxpayer resources, lives, and national sovereignty!”

The ad reads, “Call your member of Congress today to support conservative immigration reform. 202-224-3121,” and features a video of the commercial with Marco Rubio claiming that amnesty legislation is needed to prevent “Defacto Amnesty.”

Here are some of the last few comments at the time of this release that are similar to 95% of the current 1,100+ comments left beneath the Chamber of Commerce Ad…

–Carol D Williams I don’t support ANY immigration reform until the borders are 100% secure!
— J.w. Mayfield No…no amnesty, no immigration bill….use the laws we have already on the books. We cannot afford 11 to 30 million more “citizens” we can’at even take care of the ones we have…
— Jason Cordova Call to support!? You’re nuts. Call that number and demand your senator votes NO.
–Keith Turney I support physically securing the border, enforcing the laws that are already on the books, and THEN having a discussion regarding the people already here.
–Clifford Krimmel I’m going to urge any member of the chamber to NOt rnew it’s membership, if the Chamber continues to support such harmful bills.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC would like to know if Facebook is giving the US Chamber of Commerce special ad rates or free advertising since both Facebook and Google are supporting the amnesty too?

The significant, intense, and graphically one sided backlash against the US Chamber of Commerce ad featuring Marco Rubio on Facebook shows that the Chamber and Rubio are attempting to use their deep pockets and influence with large corporations to pass a bill (S. 744) that is opposed by most Americans and most conservatives due to the harm it will cause them and the nation!

The US Chamber of Commerce expensive ad has backfired just like Senate Bill S. 744 will backfire on the American public if it is ever signed into law.

Please review all of the comments at this link…
https://www.facebook.com/uschamber/posts/10151768908464529

ALIPAC calls on all current members of the US Chamber of Commerce to drop their membership in the organization in response to this betrayal of public trust by pushing amnesty for illegal immigrants at the expense of American workers and taxpayers.

In Search of Liquidity at Tech2Trade 2013, World’s Most Influential High-frequency Trading Conference

Golden Networking

Golden Networking brings Tech2Trade Expo 2013 (www.Tech2TradeExpo.com), World’s Most Influential Alternative Investments Conference Series, including High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, “Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges,” New York City, London, Chicago, Singapore and Frankfurt (www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com).

HFTLF 2013 New York

New York City, NY, USA (June 25, 2013) — A deeply liquid market is considered a sign of a healthy market with lots of participants, but Commissioner Bart Chilton, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, says all liquidity may not be the same and could be distorting markets. The CFTC is concerned that some of the liquidity that may be provided by high-frequency traders could be “fantasy liquidity created by ‘wash’ sales,” which is prohibited under both the Commodity Exchange Act and exchange rules.

High-frequency traders enter and exit the market quickly and can do so multiple times a day, helping to create a more liquid market. But they’re a relatively new addition to the trading world and Chilton said how they operate needs closer scrutiny, especially since at times they can be 30% to 50% of a market. The concern is over “wash” trades, which happens a trader trades with himself, in other words puts out a bid price and matches it. “If you’re trading with yourself, you have nothing to lose, you’re not taking a risk. If this was occurring a little bit, it would be no harm, no foul,” Chilton said.

However, he said, this is happening more than a little bit, calling the wash trades “voluminous.” Chilton said there may be two reasons why these wash trades are happening. One is to make it look like there is deep volume to entice other people to trade those markets. Second, these traders may be part of legitimate market-maker programs, which is when an exchange pays a market-maker to provide liquidity. “But it’s dangerous if you’re trading with yourself and taking no risk. It can also affect price discovery and hurts consumers,” he said.

To discuss the eternal liquidity challenge, Golden Networking is pleased to host Tech2Trade Expo 2013’s High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 (http://www.High-Frequency-Trading-Conference.com), “Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges”, this July 30 in New York City, September 18 in London., October 8 in Chicago, October 24 in Singapore and November 21 in Frankfurt.

“Strategic and Tactical Insights for Investors, Speed Traders, Brokers and Exchanges,” is the theme of High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, forum that will provide attendees in New York City, London, Chicago, Singapore and Frankfurt with the most up-to-date review of where this ever-changing industry stands through an insightful keynote speeches and thought-provoking panels with leaders in the field. “High-frequency trading will no doubt play an ever larger role as computer technology advances and the global exchanges embrace fast electronic access.” said Edgar Perez, author of The Speed Traders and the forthcoming Knightmare on Wall Street. Recognized experts, regulators, and strategists, will return to High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 to provide the information practitioners are looking for in an open and unbiased environment, highly conducive to the most efficient and effective networking.

New Regulatory Regimes for Derivatives at Tech2Trade Expo’s Derivatives Trading Forum 2013

Golden Networking

Golden Networking brings Tech2Trade Expo 2013 (www.Tech2TradeExpo.com), World’s Most Influential Alternative Investments Conference Series, including Derivatives Trading Forum 2013, “Global Implementation of Regulatory Reform in the $640 Trillion OTC Derivatives Market,” New York City, London, Chicago, Singapore and Frankfurt (www.DerivativesTradingForum.com).

DTF 2013 New York City

New York City, NY, USA (June 25, 2013) — Over the past five years, the European Union and the U.S. have developed separate, new regulatory regimes for derivatives, aimed at protecting our financial systems, economies and taxpayers from a repeat of the 2008 crisis. European Markets and Infrastructure Regulation, the EU’s strict and comprehensive set of rules for derivatives transactions, became law in August and took effect in March. EMIR fulfills the commitments made by the leaders of Group of 20 nations to improve safety and transparency by requiring reporting and mandatory clearing for derivative trades. Trading rules will soon follow.

EMIR is stricter and broader in scope than the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, which regulates U.S. markets. For instance, in Europe, all financial companies regardless of size are required to clear their derivatives trades and report them to trade repositories, and there is no carve-out for foreign-exchange transactions. The EU’s capital standards for clearing houses are much tougher. EMIR’s transparency obligations, both pre-trade and post-trade, are more rigorous than those in force in the U.S.

Following the entry into force of these regulations, market participants are dealing with a complex list of requirements to be fulfilled at different deadlines in the coming months. For market participants, the key challenge will be to meet the central clearing and trade reporting obligations, while regulators strive to ensure consistency with foreign jurisdictions so as to limit the unintended effects of extraterritoriality.

Golden Networking is pleased to host at Tech2Trade Expo 2013’s Derivatives Trading Forum 2013 (http://www.DerivativesTradingForum.com), this July 30 in New York City, September 18 in London, October 8 in Chicago, October 24 in Singapore and November 21 in Frankfurt. Derivatives Trading Forum 2013, “Global Implementation of Regulatory Reform in the $640 Trillion OTC Derivatives Market”, aims at critically reviewing recent regulatory developments and identifying opportunities and challenges in the implementation process, which may influence its full entry into force in America, Europe and Asia. This recent regulation, with its implementing rules, will certainly reshape OTC derivative markets and produce structural changes in the financial industry, with effects for the real economy.

Golden Networking’s Derivatives Trading Forum 2013, “Global Implementation of Regulatory Reform in the $640 Trillion OTC Derivatives Market”, will provide attendees with answers to all their questions on how to successfully navigate the new regulatory landscape for over-the-counter and exchange-traded derivatives, devise profit-increasing strategies to enhance the performance of their trading desks and anticipate further developments in the industry. Recognized industry experts will provide attendees with the information they are looking for in an open and unbiased environment. Leaders in the industry will also discuss long-term market and industry perspectives, taking into consideration the interaction of the Dodd-Frank Act and EMIR with other pieces of legislation.

Derivatives Trading Forum 2013, co-located with Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2013 and High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013, is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs and investors.

Chasing Alternative Investments Risk-Adjusted Alpha at Tech2Trade’s Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2013

Golden Networking

Golden Networking brings Tech2Trade Expo 2013 (www.Tech2TradeExpo.com), World’s Most Influential Alternative Investments Conference Series, now incorporating Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2013, “Getting Ready to Manage $5 Trillion by 2016,” New York City, London, Chicago, Singapore and Frankfurt (www.HedgeFundsLeadersForum.com).

HFLF 2013 New York City

New York City, NY, USA (June 25, 2013) — As hedge funds have matured as an alternative asset class they have been increasingly embraced by institutional investors of all sizes, as well as high net worth investors, Tim Ng, Managing Director, Clearbrook Global Advisors, says. Their very success or perceived non-success may also be creating confusion for some investors. This issue is more important than ever before due to the changing landscape of hedge fund investing that has shifted from predominantly an asset class filled with high net worth investors, to now being dominated by major institutional investors.

The growing dependence on hedge fund returns by institutional investors to provide alpha and downside risk mitigation versus traditional long only assets makes it more important than ever to properly identify, understand and employ the proper hedge fund to meet the specific return, risk and liquidity objectives of the institutional investors. Over many years and now decades, we believe that hedge funds have been a misunderstood asset class due to investors and advisors alike grouping hedge funds into a single melting pot and believing any hedge fund should be able to accomplish what the client needs.

Institutional investors today are confronted with achieving acceptable rates of return and the need to mitigate downside risk. Pension funds in this low interest rate environment are seeing their underfunding status worsen, and endowments are needing to find other means with which to meet their annual spending needs. Therefore, Ng says, it is important for institutions to ferret out and employ investments that can meet their targeted rates of return without taking on an inordinate amount of risk. The choice of the appropriate hedge fund to either provide risk/adjusted alpha versus equities or a moderate fixed income like return can help institutions to reduce their volatility and enhance returns over time. Lower volatility and smaller potential portfolio draw-downs lead to a greater wealth effect and compounding of return for the institution.

The consistent compounding of returns will permit institutions to better meet their liabilities and spending needs, as hundreds of the most important players in alternative investments in the world will find out at Tech2Trade Expo 2013’s Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2013 (http://www.HedgeFundsLeadersForum.com), “Getting Ready to Manage $5 Trillion by 2016”, this July 30 in New York City, September 18 in London., October 8 in Chicago, October 24 in Singapore and November 21 in Frankfurt. A virtual who’s who will soon follow as one legendary manager after another will take the stage. Billions of investable assets will be represented by influential local and international investors who will listen with rapt attention as star managers and analysts discuss and debate the biggest issues facing the industry today.

Hedge Funds Leaders Forum 2013, co-located with High Frequency Trading Leaders Forum 2013 and Derivatives Trading Forum 2013, is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs and investors.
