I have the simple solution for the occupy wall streeters. Why not pass around the Series 7 Manual and take the test. Become the new Wall street and lower the unemployment rate. Wall street firms should hire all the occupy protesters as new advisors and let them protest from within the sales pits of the firms. Train the new breed of Wall streeters so they can begin to understand what the market is all about. I think a new job stimulus plan offers tax incentives for new hires and stimulus for the company who hires them. Lets see : 5000- package 90 days to sink or swim- take the test - pass your in - (series 7) fail your out. 6 months later the market has more buyers and less sellers. Win Win. These days you can trade right from your Iphone and get quotes while your talking. :-() A bucket shop on every corner of wall street. Occupy the street from within. Take the series 7 and read it. Benefits-Take a series of new smaller companies public and keep the parks clean.
