The worst thing you can do after a bad day of day trading is to try to make back everything you lost in one big trade. Figure out why you suffered the loss, adjust your strategy accordingly and move forward without making any rash decisions. If you make a trade out of panic, you might increase your losses. Thanks a lot.

Shhh...don't tell anyone. Just take the Executive elevator. This year's party will be better than ever.

Off premises for top execs - verbal invite only, no written records or e-mails that could be seen by the proles.

Economics graduates are employable in varying degrees, depending on the regional economic scenario and labour market conditions at the time for a given country. Apart from the specific understanding of the subject, employers value the skills of numeracy and analysis, the ability to communicate and the capacity to grasp broad issues which the graduates acquire at the university. Thanks.

No, they are doing it all wrong. They need to charge and for a profit to get into the party. Make it mandatory. If you don't show up you are docked a weeks pay. That's how you need to run these businesses.

Ironic since all they've done is party

Pure tokenizm to make it look like 'they are suffering too', 'sharing the burden'... they've still got their snouts well buried in the trough.

Next thing you know they won't even allow bank employees to masturbate under the desk as they sell predatory loans!!!

They're taking all the fun away.

I figured they would do like the Chinese companies:

"The 300 employees of Aomi Fluid Equipment here were delighted recently when the owner offered an all-expenses-paid, two-day trip to a mountain resort three hours away.

The owner, Sun Fucai — or Boss Sun, as he’s known — was so insistent that his workers attend that he imposed a $30 fine on any employee who refused the getaway. Nearly everyone went.

Except Boss Sun.

When the employees returned from their holiday, they found that the factory had been stripped of its equipment and that Boss Sun had fled town. “It was entirely empty,” Li Heying, a former Aomi worker, said of the factory. “It was like what happens in war time.”"

Did they have fun at least?

I like the "no off site meetings" thing actually. "my God! They're plotting against us! And they're not even doing it in house like they're suppose to!"

What ZH has done is banned it's followers from catching any part of a 12% moonshot.

And they most likely have gotten crushed shorting the Rocket.


Thanks ZH, you're a real pal like Charles Manson.


Got DOOM ?

The only trade recommendation I remember ZH posting recently was a compression trade between Dexia CDS and Belgian CDS

and I believe that trade is doing okay.

alien-IQ's picture

then just go back to watching Cramer. He needs the ratings far more than ZH does.

And what can possibly go wrong following his advice? right?

I believe the real reason for the party cancellations is fear that the bartenders and wait staff will piss in their drinks before handing it to them.

Given the opportunity...I know I'd piss in their drinks.

Sanity in the classic definition has long been forgotten by this insane world.

The few sane people left have been forcibly admitted to the nuthouse and have the choice of suicide or losing ones mind and joining the party.
