One other thing. The reason I post here is that I like helping people, both because I get a good feeling from it, and because it's long term profitable. I help someone get in, someday they'll help me. The thing about people that beat up on me, is that they tend to beat up on newbies. Also, I have a pretty thick skin for this sort of thing. The good news is that there are lots of places in Wall Street where you can find friendly, helpful people that are doing everything they can to help you succeed. They are doing it because they think that they can make money off you. The truth is that everyone wants something from you. Everyone is out to get your money, include me. Now the question, is *how* they plan to get your money. Me? I want you to feel good. I want you to trust me. If you feel good around me, if you trust me, then you are more likely to hand over your wallet to me, but I'm not going to ask unless I really think that I can hand it back to you with more money in it. Now the really cool thing is that I work around people that basically have the same view of the world, and it's rather common on Wall Street for firms to have this sort of philosophy.
