Figures, day after I turn bullish, we are in a short-term countertrend short. Looking for a sell off back to a halfway back long for the week. Shorting could be messy; but, it's doable. 30+ Point Target, 6-8 points of risk. 5:1 reward:risk. Just cut if we hit new highs. Ideal place to buy is 3231.75 - 3222. Below 3222, it gets messy as that risks going back into the previous range. Medium-Term Objective is 3375.

Lots of justified negative energy on FB. Here is my proposal- Let’s all make honest efforts to make work not just bearable but also respectful, empathetic, and productive for each other. We all have pain points at work and don’t always take ownership of how we’re the pain points for others. Hope everyone has a more positive day!

I’m really good at pretending to be interested in what people are saying when they talk to me. I’ll kind of zone out but can remember/single out the main talking points so that I can bring it up later with them and they’ll be stoked. Does anyone else feel the same way?
There’s at least 3 dead flies lying around my hotel room, and 3 more flying around. Big flies, not fruit flies...I changed rooms. Is this worth asking for points?

How have people found financial advisors they like? What do you look for? I inherited a 401k and investment account & with that a financial advisor (I kept the same person managing the account). I’ll have add’l money coming in over the next few months as probate wraps up and I’d really like to find someone longterm. I’m 30; before this I didn’t have my own financial advisor, so I’m a little bit of a newbie. Sorry if this has been asked already. Trying to be responsible with my loved one’s money.

What is the average annual salary increase for a first year associate starting at $125k at a busy midsized firm in New York? What would be reasonable to ask for (assuming a $300 billable rate and 1800 billable requirement)?
I know someone who got his work&travel permit then traveled internationally (it’s been 5 months) to disconnect mentally (he went through a lot in US alone). Then, he got his green card just 2 weeks ago. Does anyone know if the 6 months period will re-start because he got his GC? Or he has to come back regardless before the 6 months period is finished?

Transferring from audit to FDD. How do I study for the interviews? Is there any resources I can use to pass the case interviews? What are some types of questions for the behavioral interviews?
Have the option to transfer to Canada (Vancouver/Toronto/Montreal) and keep my US salary or to London at a 10% paycut. My current salary is 100K USD which will be ~65K GBP if London and ~125K CAD if Canada. Obviously my salary will go further in Canada but London sounds too cool to pass on. So my main question is: will living on 65K in London be comfortable enough that I just do it for the experience? Currently in NYC at 3 yoe and will go back to the US after 1 year for MBA. Please advise!
New tax SM here focused on mainly F500 provisions with a technology background - wondering where to take my career at this point. Does it make sense to take a tax M/SM job in industry, chase the carrot of 5-6 years at SM, or try to pivot into straight tax technology (either in industry or public)? I have a lot of goodwill built up at my firm and I work hard, but I am so incredibly burnt out after the last two years.
