Giving out advice w/o a license?
You generally don't need to become registered with the Administrator unless compensation is recieved either directly or indirectly for your advice. That's the general rule.
You guys don't need to be so defensive about your job security. I know.. and frankly you know, that just about anyone can get the license you have to be a FA so back off of her. I'm an undergrad and could pass that test without picking up a single test prep manual. If people want to come to this website to ask questions and use these forums to learn more then how could you grill them? You're sorry souls, Get bent..
oh oh and by the way Ricky Bobby, based on the "A sucker is born every day" philosophy, I could copy/paste your sarcastic liability notice into Wordpress and ACTUALLY make something of it because... truly, a sucker is born everyday and I'd love to take your business for free. Thanks for all of the financial help you've given to all of us. Your integrity as professional advisors is so rich.
