*Financial Discussion*
My fiancé and I have been planning our long term finances. We’re both currently saving for a down payment but she’s in law school so only working part time. Once she starts working as an attorney at her law firm, we discussed both of us maxing out our 401k to lower our taxable income for about 3 years. That way, when we start a family, our 401k can grow well on its own in case I’m the main provider (she’ll work part time for a couple years while kids are young). Thoughts?

Thankfully, law school loans are being covered so we don’t have to worry about that aspect (at least for now).

My boss fired me because i ask for clarification on my employment right.

Anyone have an idea on what I could do speed up robinhood and get them going?

EFA is another trade betting on the economy strengthening. This ticker is developed markets X-US. It is a difficult trade because the longs are much more variable for moves than the greeks would predict, but they even out over time. This morning is a good example with the ticker up barely, but he long down significantly. It is easy to over react and over trade it.
I got in when the election was pretty well sealed and figured Biden would be much better for global trade and global companies.

Hi fishes,

I just got an offer from Morgan Stanley. The offer is indeed handsome and provides other benefits as well. The problem is I just relocated to Pune for my wife's work, we have set up our house here and now if I accept offer I again have to relocate to Bangalore because they aren't offering WFH. What should I do? I know Morgan Stanley is a very reputed firm and might make an enormous impact in my technical growth, but is it worth taking the pain of relocation again?? I am confused.
