Silver Crashing?AlphaTrends tweeted this earlier: saying silver will look like this in 2 weeks... I'd like to think that this is true, but with the way the markets are right now, who knows when it'll come down, if ever? Any thoughts? 1 4 years 12 months

Entrepreneurship vs BankingI'm currently running my own company, a web development/marketing agency, and I must say we have been doing pretty well for only being one year old. I'm taking a light load this semester (4 classes, 1 is a joke, 1 is hard, 2 are average) in order to have time to run it, and quit my part-time job... 20 5 years 4 hours
Amazing - Little Kids FightingThis video made me smile. I've watched it 10 times already. The cocky little kid learned a lesson, old-school style. Reminds me of home... UPDATE: Youtube took down the video, the only other copy I could find is here: But it's not as hilarious because the YouTube one had the... 54 5 years 1 month
How many Investment Bankers?How many investment bankers are there in the U.S.? In the world? How many SAs? How many 1st year analysts? Would be very interesting to see these numbers but I've been having a hard time finding reliable information. 12 5 years 1 month
You wanna see an impressive resume?Bam. Holy. Shit. 20 5 years 1 month
Would you trade places with your MD?He strolls into the office whenever he wants, looking sharp and slick. The only thing shinier than his new, freshly polished Ferragamo loafers is the 24K gold on his cufflinks. Or maybe it's his new Patek Phillippe, the one he bought on a whim after seeing an ad in the back of The Economist (which... 61 5 years 2 months
Secondary Market for Silver BananasOk so I am wondering, since this is a finance forum, shouldn't there be a secondary marketplace for Silver Bananas and WSO credits? I know you can buy WSO credits, but what if you could buy bananas? I already have envisioned all the logistics of how this would work. Just need the stamp of... 7 5 years 2 months
Bragging a LittleNot to be a douche or anything but I'm feeling pretty good about this: I took all my scholarship money (~$9k) and invested all of it in mid-January. It's now worth $15k. Maybe I got lucky, but I have a pretty good feeling about what I'm doing. I've gotten burned before but this is awesome.... 15 5 years 2 months
Dream job?If you could have a job, any job, what would it be? I'm guessing many of you would say something like MD at GS TMT... but curious to see what you think. As for me, I think Skydiving Instructor in a tropical paradise would be a pretty sweet job. Make a boat load of money off of rich tourists... 59 5 years 2 months

Helvetica Neue is good, too. @f1mpladed: my resume looks a lot like that guy's, so I uploaded the template. Feel free to use it: Edit: You will have to play... 117 6 months 2 weeks
Seems like Barcap, JPM, MS, Citi are the best in...Seems like Barcap, JPM, MS, Citi are the best in energy. The Houston offices of these firms pitch AND execute. GS is not that hot in Houston, but they do well for themselves. BAML does well also. Have heard bad things about Jefferies. Like they say, UBS is UBS. In Houston, it seems guys at MS... 670 6 months 3 weeks
Very good summary of an economic scenario I...Very good summary of an economic scenario I largely agree with. SB'd. One thing I would add though, is that you need to diversify your emerging market exposure. Brazil, Russia, India, China, Eastern Europe, Africa... each of these regions can experience massive growth or crippling crises over... 17 1 year 8 months

As mentioned above, interns in California might get significant overtime. However, since SA programs are usually the best (and often the only)... 23 2 years 2 months

That makes sense to me, actually. The guy who...That makes sense to me, actually. The guy who decides whether or not to hire you is probably testing your ability to analyze a scenario and come up with a recommendation, which is pretty much what you would be doing for him if he hired you. The model is a tool - he assumes you can build one to some... 18 2 years 3 months
