How can I learn about fractional vs whole investing in LC, Prosper, etc?  Do I have that as an option as a retail investor? Or is that only for Institutional clients?

I think you have to call and ask.  I think it's more of a size & experience thing rather than institutional vs individual. 

PS: At the 10am feeding (just now), they added 26 fractional + 209 whole loans.  Get 'em while they're hot.

LC posts loans 4 times per day.  I think there must be a new fellow in charge of this for the last few months, as they don't take as much care to maintain inventory levels in the fractional market as they used to.  In any case, the pattern now is that most postings are small, and the weekday afternoon postings are the big ones.  It is as if the guy has it set on automatic, ie just post a tiny number, and then he steps in once per weekday, and opens the gate.

It would be better for fractional investors if they paid attention to the inventory level.  You'd like to know that whenever you login, there's a fair chance that you can do some business.  I'll send in this suggestion.

This chart shows the number of loans posted at each feeding time.  I've shown the total number of loans posted, including both whole and fractional.  The line is a 7 day moving average of the dots, so you can see the trend.



Do you have a chart showing the # and/or % of notes that are whole v fractional?

No.  I think there's one on the peercube web site now.  I don't know how to find it.  Someone posted a link here awhile back.

Well, I found on chart on peercube ... https://www.peercube.com/histperf/available_loans/lc

The middle chart on that page shows the # of loans entering the fractional market vs time.  You can click a button and change the time scale.  Not exactly what you asked for, but close.

There used to be a nice chart showing both relative # and % whole vs fractional on the NSR web site, but I think its gone now.

One evening I went to invest and I couldn't find any A or B loans.
I think it varies.
:D

~11% are fractional loans.  It feels like LC is shafting us, the individual investors.

Seems to me like we're back to the where are the loans again. Yes it's end of month and all, but wow. Nothing good in Folio. Nothing good that's new. I've seen rules purchase in my plans that normally don't get used because everything else triggers before. Even still- not enough to buy.

And it seems like all the panic sellers are gone too.

I list notes for sale at a significant markup and they are starting to sell again too. Crazy times, it seems. Looking at $2-3k waiting to be invested, and no where good to invest it.

Others seeing similar or has my criteria become too tight?

At this rate LC will eventually decide to exit the fractional loan business and focus on institutional. Then it will get bought by some bank as folded into conventional lending.

Mark my words. Check back on this post in three years.

I've taken about 40% of my chips off the LC table and this afternoon I've turned on my auto-invest program again. I didn't let it actually buy anything, but I wanted to see what "it would have bought" if I chose. Two (yeah, count them) notes in the 2pm PDT drop. I'll let the program run this way for a while so I can figure out if LC is showing us the door so to speak, or if they are still committed to keeping little guy in the game. I should have been running in this mode since 5/9 and would have a better understanding of loan availability. Unfortunately I did not. Bad on me.

Welcome!  22 is right, since before 5 P.M. last night.  Not a problem caused by your filters--just hang on, there'll be more by a day or two from now.

Can it be a lending club when there's nobody to lend to? I'm not filtering... :(

There are currently no Notes matching your criteria. Please consider adjusting your filter settings or returning to the site later. New Notes are listed seven days a week at 6 AM, 10 AM, 2 PM, and 6 PM PT.

I just snapped up a few notes on FOLIO tonight with over 4% discount that fit right into my strat.  Not having much of an issue with FOLIO and not finding notes that have never been late at discounts. 
Would you mind me asking when you say "significant markup", what that would entail?

There are literally no loans at all being listed on LC.  When I click browse loans, it shows 0 of 0 loans.

Never seen this before.

Edit:  After 6am drop, there are now 27.  I guess there are really 0 loans.  Seems a bit odd to me.

Do you mind sharing which tools/sites you use to screen for notes?

I have multiple filters on NSR for digging around FOLIO.  I am not sure if it is still in BETA, as I am/was a tester.  As a small investor, no fees are involved, so it is right up my alley.  I expect NSR to keep progressing and more useful items to be added in the near future. 
Anil gave me access for a month to poke around on PeerCube and its interface is fantastic.  Lots of bells and whistles on their FOLIO buying and selling.  Give him a lot of props for PC.
Both have automated features for buying, but until they build something that shows recent FICO drops, I just can not get into it.  FICO score might still be "UP" but in all reality, the note might be plunging like a stone.
