I decided to mix it up this time around because 1.) I’ve had a rough few days in the ol’ market (as I’m sure many have), and 2.) there seems to be a bunch of finance folk reading this website, so why not?
First of all, I didn’t make any moves today because it’s wild out there. Per my mentor Kyle’s advice, I’m treading lightly. You know, sometimes the best moves are the ones you don’t make at all. Someone said that once. With that being said, I’m actually up slightly on the day. Pardon the flex.
Finance Fam: What’s a normal day looking like for you? I’m talking to the traders and analysts who I presume are glued to the market at all times. Can you even take lunch, or are you glued to this shit all day? I’m guessing #tech has made it pretty easy to get all the info you need on your phone, but again, I have no idea. Because I missed out on some moves last week, I went ahead and downloaded the E*TRADE app which feels like a basic move I should’ve made weeks ago.
Next, what are you reading and watching? I’ve always wondered what value the cable news finance networks have, if any, or if they’re pure waste like their cable news brethren. I’m imagining multiple TVs on CNBC or anything with a ticker, but again, I’m just a lawyer-podcast guy who knows very little about your world.
Finally, is your standard junior associate/analyst just doing research all day and running the intel up the chain, or are you granted the freedom to pull trig every now and then? Just curious.
As for Dave vs. Will, I think he has a decent lead on me at this point, but he left me way too much time on the clock..
