It was a bad move if it was insider trading, MSFT is at an all-time high on xbox sales and the windows 11 announcement. But nobody ever accused these guys of competence…

When I worked for any financial, in a non decision making capacity, I had to tell internal auditors about every account and approve any trades ahead of time. I also couldn’t buy most stocks (I basically could only get mutual funds usually). I also had to hold securities for a set period of time. Why aren’t these people held to a simllar standard ?

No one in the executive or legislative branch should be allowed to own stocks. It’s insane that they can. Edit: Judicial as well since their opinions can influence the market as well, although I have a much harder time believing they would commit insider trading.
