what part of the counrty are you in ?
~~~~~When you say "golden handcuffs", do you mean that you and EQ had to sign a no-competition contract? Or that you won't get your bonus unless you hang around until the end of the year? ~~~~~~~~
You wondered why I'm no longer with Bright.
Two main reasons:
1) I got a better deal
2) I don't need the leverage anymore
1) I was tired of getting up at 3:30-4:00am
2) I had done well enough to take some time off-- a few years---say, 10. My obligations are few. I'm finding life without trading boring. I enjoy the mental stimulation.
3) I wanted to concentrate on losing weight. I was 300 lbs when I left at the end of January. Tammy Bright's shopping trips to Smart & Final for snacks/sweets were legendary. Don Bright had a drawer filled with Hershey's kisses and those mini-chocolate bars you give to kids on Halloween. ( I'm 255 now and dropping).
Are you still trading?Who offered a better deal than Bright?
Are you the guy from the Vegas office who's account was down to $4000, and then started arbing and making something like $20,000 a month? (This statement may descibe more than one person @Bright).
I think I remember you - you sat with your back to Tammy, and set next to Earl?
BTW, I am also interested in the questions posted above. If you prefer to not say the stuff in public, please PM me.
There's always the east coast, or if you want to get up an hour later, the Carribbean. Or a few hours later, Europe. Etc., etc., etc.!
A trader can recoup his losses in snacks alone with amount of goodies that Bright has at that office!
I am sorry for my ignorance but.....
Negative GROSS, are you kidding me? If anyone is actually negative gross and can't get at least 1K gross a day out of this market, you are in the wrong business.
I understand how easy that sounds, but in reality it is difficult even for prof. traders in this environment
What were they arbing?
