Will this insanity ever end?
Financials are showing a fair amount of strength this afternoon...hope it's sustained...
[quote=Ron 14]Primo -If you can call market movements why be an advisor? Go lease a seat at a futures exchange and you will make a ton more money. When the market first hit 12k 2 years ago you probably sold some people out also, oops, next stop 14k. [/quote] So let me get this straight. You have been in the business less than 3 years. You are struggling to meet expectations. You as recently as a couple months ago considered going to a bank to be a "sorta" broker. Is this correct? You feel this qualifies you to give advice to another broker (or clients for that matter)? You concentrate on meeting your minimums, let me worry about when to get more conservative and when to be more aggressive. As much as you want to call it market timing, it is not. You keep telling your prospects that to enjoy all the upside, you have to withstand the downside and "this too shall pass". I will just make my clients money.
i think you should put client money into aig index annuities. then punch yourself in the face.
