  1. I had posed a question earlier in the ET community if they had found the Holy Grail. After about 10+ pages of moronic replies, I came to the conclusion that they had not found it. Now I will reveal the Holy Grail to you.

    The Holy Grail is at a place called H-A-R-V-A-R-D. If you can get there, then you will have found the Holy Grail. I hope this thread has been helpful.

  2. Not quite EMG the Holy Grail is nothing more than HAVING common sense!
     
  3. depends on what your goals are.
    Personally i prefer my freedom and good day-to-day profits over being a suit at some giant firm.
     
  4. I wonder how many poor saps invested in hedge funds thinking "He's got an Ivy league education. He can't lose."
     
  5. Whatever happens to the hedge funds...whatever happens to brokers like Morgan Stanley, the guy with the Ivy League education will either be 1) given a bonus, salary or both OR 2) get fired. Lets say he gets fired then they will probably find a respectable job somewhere else especially with the connections they made in college with other Ivy Leaguers. However, the guy with the Ivy League education will in no way be wiped out like the stockholders of Bear Stearns or Lehman.

    It is only a win-win situation for the Ivy Leaguer...for everyone else it is just lose-lose.
     
  6. Many business owners can make an "Ivy leaguer" salary look like peanuts and you dont have to have a college degree to own an extremely successful business... catch a clue !
     
  7. The key to making six or more figures in business is one thing, but the key to making six or more figures in trading is really an Ivy League degree. Yeah, there are of course other ways to make it into the big leagues, but the easiest way seems to be the way of the Ivies.

    Trading at home or a low-end prop firm is probably not the best way to make it into the big leagues.
     
  8. No shit. I think he may be a college recruiter who's scared because people are figuring out they don't need a college education to be successful.
     


  9. I wonder how many poor parents invested in their kids getting them an ivy league education thinking "He's got an Ivy league education. He can't lose. I bet there are many that wish they would have kept their money in the bank!
     
  10. What's your idea of "the big leagues". I trade at home for a prop firm, and it is all I want to do, and the sky is the limit. I've never looked at it as a stepping stone. Going to work in the big city wearing a tie would be nothing short of a nightmare.
