Getting married soon. Want to bring up the mgmt of finances conversation. We both are in the high income bracket in a HCOL city. But had different starting points with me having been in higher paying job for longer, which means we might have different current savings. Not that this matters much as we both are not dingy about who pays for what day to day. But curious to know what are the best practices in terms of: 1. Things to discuss before wedding on finances 2. How to split cost of livingetc
The Year end process at Deloitte has me reflecting on my past engagements. I’ve two tough and stressful project experiences that absolutely consumed my life at the time.

Getting sick of selling the market, watching it go my way, and then roaring back. So, I went back to revisit the daily. Could we be trading an extension long? Is that the reason why this market is going up? In Mid-June, we sold off to 2394 in ES. We can back for a 2nd test in early July but, rallied and we have rallied ever since. 3375 is the objective, 125 points away, and right at old highs. Do we have to goto old highs before a sell off? Maybe? Buy the 21 (yellow) and 51

I work in a lean team. When it’s me + NSP + a senior partner on the deal, the senior partner refuses to speak to me directly and my work would go up the chain of command. The NSP + senior partner would discuss the rationale for certain positions in the key docs w/o explaining to me or speak to clients directly w/o me, and I’d be asked to send out the revised draft to the opp counsel. When I get calls from opp counsel on tougher points in the drafts, I’m not really able to answer. Is this normal?
