What are people wearing to zoom interviews these days? I have a couple with PE firms coming up and I’m not sure if I should go with the athleisure look or full on suit and tie?

Don’t go full suit and tie, but don’t go athleisure either

Obviously it depends, but I would wear a dress shirt and have a sport coat handy. I do the usual peak before turning on my camera to see what they are wearing and adjust accordingly.

You don’t need a suit and tie, just the jacket and tie. Minimum jacket and nice shirt... but for PE, IB, and MBB I would go tie too.

For a zoom call, the pants don’t matter.

What firm are you from?

If it’s for PE, go suit and tie

Was getting yelled at by senior manager via Zoom for going over budget. Didn’t respond, just dropped from the call Intentionally, due to the tone/ aggression shown. Gave him 3 minutes to calm down and rejoined the zoom call. He settled down and adjusted his tone. Do you guys think I need to report to HR this behavior or just let it go? I’m a professional not a child to berate.

Last night's buy at 3096 goes 1.5 points over the objective that I called last night in Europe. There were two HWB long buying opportunities last night. New Target 3159.25 probably hit in today's NY session. We are trading Micro HWB's right now. Basically, we are goin to hit new highs and create a potential double top situation. Be careful being long at that new objective. If it's a dip into new highs situation, we could sell off violently, like we did yesterday. Bullish Above 3126.
