What's our chance of becoming a CFO?

IMO, very slim if all your experience is strictly tax-focused. CFOs deal with so much more than tax; it’s a very different mindset.

Sidebar: Idk how I got in this bowl. I must have clicked on a link and got put into it, but I don’t work in FS Tax lol. Regardless, I saw the question and figured I’d provide my input.


I’ve seen/work with clients who are less qualified to be CFO and we’re at the right place at the right time.

Anything is possible.

Intermediate term HWB short of yesterday's move traded perfectly at the 3120 level this morning in Europe. Post employment numbers are also defending a micro HWB short. What this means is that we are likely head down. Initial targets are 3062, yesterday's low and 3042, our intermediate objective. Will there be longs and investors at those levels to to buy? I don't think so. So, ideally you are short going into those level in the event that they fail.
