It’s hard to know when to call the top in this crazy market isn’t it? But surely, surely, this has to be some kind of indicator:
Yes that’s a new ad featuring Michael Bolton, from Public.com, the stock trading app that, unlike all the other stock trading apps, is “on the mission to open the stock market to everyone by making it inclusive, educational, and fun”.

Who said trading stonks couldn’t be damn sexy?
