Has anyone successfully caught an associate falsifying time? I initially became suspicious because the amount of office chit chat Iโ€™ve witnessed and nature of social media postings (frequent bar trips midweek) wasnโ€™t adding up with his alleged hours billed. I pulled his time and itโ€™s hard to say if itโ€™s falsified or if heโ€™s just incompetent - and I donโ€™t want to go to my other partners if Iโ€™m not 100% sure. But itโ€™s hard to believe he honestly spent .8 reviewing a one page order.

I know everyone will just tell me to calm down but I started a month ago and am on the bench. Feels like the people I started with were picked up.

Doesnโ€™t help that a lot of people are in the south and offline with the snow. Any guidance as to what a path forward should be to learn to relax?

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.
