Ive been bullish since June and expect this rally to continue until late August. After that, I’m loading up on VIX and value stocks. Open to feedback/different viewpoints. Delta variant is irrelevant IMO. Week of July 26th - Choppy mid-week due to interest rate decision on 7/28 Week of August 2nd - Bullish all week leading up to July Jobs data Week of August 9th - Inflation data might cause slight pullback but still bullish Week of August 16th - Bullish until options expiry on August 20th
Delta status question. I have silver status but am probably going to miss it by a tiny bit this year. I know it rolls over to next year but will my mqms rollover too? Technically I am silver so they should but also I didn’t meet this years requirements so I could see why they wouldn’t too. Confused by this.

PwC is in process of filing my perm (phase 4 eta 9089 prep). So I don’t have the i140 yet. I have roughly 13 months left on my h1b.

Is it worth taking a ~20% pay cut for a product mkt role in tech? Imagining more interesting work and better WLB. Company has IPO’d with good growth trajectory (hence equity may grow). Honestly the pay cut would not affect my quality of life but it’s so hard to not think of the opportunity cost and that I will make the same as a first year associate. 6 YOE + MBA with no solid technical experience, 2Y mck EM

I’m in MTS and recently got an offer from PWC federal side, compensation wise it’s really close but in my group I have multiple clients under three different Senior Manager which is what kills me. I’ve always want to get federal experience and I don’t think it’ll be easy if I want to transfer to a federal group. So should I quit or use the offer to negotiate transfer group? I know I have someone if I want to negotiate to go to national MTS but federal I don’t have close connection…

The trusts and estates bowl is not very active, so thought I’d post here. We are in the middle of updating our will/trust. We don’t have any close family that could take care of our kids if we died. Our closest friend lives in Brazil. We would love to have her take care of the kids - but don’t know if there is any way around immigration laws to have that happen if she were willing to move to US. My Google searches haven’t turned up an answer.

Background: My client is an industrial manufacturer in the Midwest. They are the finance arm of a company that makes tractors and construction equipment. Most people in the office dress in a collard shirt or polo with blue jeans. Usually they have branded apparel like sweaters or jackets over top. They're technically white collar but with a blue collar clientele. Question: should I wear my Carhartt jacket into their office next week or stick with a peacoat? I'll be in business casual.
In the actual workspace, how different is UX from Product design? I’m trying to transition into UX from product/UI and it looks like a lot of the job postings are identical to what I do as a product designer. Minus the research of course. Can I leverage my 7 years of experience when applying and negotiating? Or am I considered a relative entry level UXD in this sense?
