Am a commercial banker for one of the largest banks out there. Probably violating some corporate policy by having a trading account. (This is a bank though that prohibits its employees from having an NCAA basketball office pool or from collecting $2 to buy Power Ball tickets.) Certainly am not a professional but do more homework on a weekly basis than I ever did in high school & college combined. Family has alot of medical professions background & learning when to listen to them & when not to is an on-going battle.
