    References for a 17 year old looking to get into Day Trading?

    Are you unfamiliar with the huge change in the way that trading works at the institutional level? Between the volume and regulations, it's not possible to simply scale up retail investment work. Aside from working at one, I guess not. Look, excuses are just that... excuses. Liquidity has...

    References for a 17 year old looking to get into Day Trading?

    Ah, yes, because a covered write is the same thing as purchasing a controlling share of a company with strong fundamentals and ensuring that it's managed to success? Easy tiger, the Buffett comparison only concerns your walk in the park 15% annual returns. Say you put in the SF minimum of $100K...

    References for a 17 year old looking to get into Day Trading?

    I'm curious why no one mentioned FX yet... http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...187273238.html Does that sound like a normal lifestyle to you? Covered writes will easily return 15% annually I'd suggest you drop out of school and just write options all day. With "easy" 15% annual return and...

    NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread

    Get rid of Duncan. He's had a great career but these days he looks like a deer in the headlights. That's class. Sorry Steve, I couldnt help it. Plus, there's about as much chance of this happening as LBJ gets elected as the new mayor of Cleveland.

    Domain Name Rights

    I reckon this isn't what you want to hear, but you could offer the guy more money. Noted venture capital investor Fred Wilson recently wrote about startups and domain names. "... Be prepared to pay up for a good domain. It is very unlikely that you'll find a great domain name these days for less...

    Would you take a 50% pay cut to pursue your passion?

    This is where I'm at as well. Though I do reckon that passions evolve, and most things can be put on the block at the right price. So would I do something I don't care about for twice the money? It depends. I am pretty passionate about what I do, so I think the question is whether I would do...

    NBA 2016-2017 Season Thread

    Whatever Kobe took before tonight's game, it is working wonders on his leaping ability and han gtime. Two sick dunks and multiple double clutch layups.

    Search Engine Optimisation and Google Ranks and all that stuff

    Gotcha. And since social media outreach is part of what you offer, DIY makes sense. The website looks good. Images look okay if somewhat small on Chrome but when I use IE9, the proportions are distorted and only one corner of the (now supersized) pic would show up.

    Search Engine Optimisation and Google Ranks and all that stuff

    Matt, have you looked into outsourcing the dirty work? The local internet coding/hacking scene is pretty robust, there oughtta be a few IT students who would love to take on the project for a couple of bills. I'd check with your network of students and the company employees. ok so here is a...

    The reading room - books on business, management, productivity and so forth...

    The reading room - books on business, management, productivity and so forth...

    I haven't read this, how did you find it? Matt, the book is indeed a must read IMHO. I have come across numerous references to Cialdini's principles during my line of research, and often at places you'd least expect pop psychology elements.

    Them Vietnamese Sandwiches

    In Vietnam, banh mi can be had with a variety of fillings, from pate, scrambled egg, lap xuong (lap chong/Chinese sausage), cha bong, pork prepared in various manners (not just BBQ), among other things. Banh mi xiu mai (per Matt's post) is but one type of banh mi. (PS: well done, Matt. The same...

    How many miles did you run today?

    Ran the San Antonio Rock'n' Roll Half today. Clocked in at 1:34, 9 minutes less than my time (1st race) last year. Stoked, and definitely will come back for more (pain).
