In btw round 1 & R2 interviews with firm 1, there's a gap of 25 days. I got a interview at another firm during this period. Shld I tell the HR at firm 1 about the same in next intrvw? If yes, what to tell & what not? Also, in btw those 25 days, I had put in my papers at current firm bcoz needed time off due to personal reasons. I am afraid if I bring this up, they'll take it as if I am lyin/that I have offers somewhere else (bcoz that's when you resign) [cant hide bcoz will hv 2 tell sometime]

Why should we tell recruiters if we are interviewing with multiple firms? Couple of reasons I could think of: 1. Expedite the process (only if someone wants to) 2. Negotiating btw offers (cant you just fake it and quote a realistic relevant offer, recruiters dont really ask for proofs etc.) Any other major reasons? Or is it just to be honest with the recruiters? Which I dont really see a point to. Infact if we tell them, I think they'll see us as someone not really dedicated to the firm

Figures, day after I turn bullish, we are in a short-term countertrend short. Looking for a sell off back to a halfway back long for the week. Shorting could be messy; but, it's doable. 30+ Point Target, 6-8 points of risk. 5:1 reward:risk. Just cut if we hit new highs. Ideal place to buy is 3231.75 - 3222. Below 3222, it gets messy as that risks going back into the previous range. Medium-Term Objective is 3375.
