Can you cash in on the lodging per diem and use air bnb instead of booking the preferred rate hotels for client travel? I think I'd rather have the cash than the hotel points.

Don't you get reimbursed for actuals? I've never heard of a travel policy (in public) of getting straight cash for hotel stays.

Absolutely not.

No where ever would u get straight cash for hotel stays.

If you sign up for Diners reward program you can get cash back...obviously doesn't amount to much if you're not traveling a lot.

*facepalm*

Some smaller firms might allow it but apparently KPMG does not. I'm sure it's in a company manual, OP. Refer to the policy.

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
