Why “take the money and run” may be your best strategy at work
I remember the first time the markets slapped me hard like it was yesterday—the sinking feeling in my stomach, the nausea, the disbelief with which I stared at my Bloomberg screen. The employment numbers had just been released and my first interest rate option position was tanking. I had planned to be the new hot shot. I had been so confident. I knew what the markets were going to do. Why couldn’t everyone else see what I saw? It was so obvious. What an idiot I was. The risk was staring me in the face all along, but I never really expected the downside to materialize for me!
