Having never worked in a wirehouse was wondering if they put in full days on days like tomorrow..

 
For that matter do a lot of people work on days the market is closed. I always have because I find I am less distracted and can focus strictly on prospecting..

Am going to DK but feel a bit squeamish about doing it between noon and 3. .... Maybe I'll find a nice Jewish neighborhood.

Our office started taking market holidays starting in 2007...closing down the office, no staff....

No point having a full staff there when we can't do anything. 

That said, it is so nice to go in with nobody there and actually be able to get some work done.

Been DK business but they are slammed with people since so many folks are off.  About to go do some residential when the rain lets up - don't worry noon - 3pm happened 8 hrs ago in Europe.

17 repeat DK contacts in the afternoon. One appointment set.  ... As always, working is more productive than the alternative.

It was a great day to put in a full day. So are Saturdays and Sundays. I went in a little later and made some call backs, booked an appointment to close a deal, closed another to open accounts Monday, did a mailing, set up some things for next month, and did some research.

 
There are no days like Good Friday and the day after Thanksgiving to get a jump on things.
 
Hint: I find that the Sat AFTER Good Friday is better than Good Friday itself for cold calling and hands down the day after Turkey day is the single best day to make residential cold calls.
