      I sure hope it’s not the same images as in fight club!
      The big shlong shots were somewhat disturbing.. but it is propaganda made by an ex Mossad spy so what can we expect.. (the director is ‘ex’ intelligence)….

      Or he’s still running the ops by brainwashing the goyim?

  2. I worked in Asset Management for 7 years, up until I was accused of losing a client $30 million, and another $9 million. It’s part of the game, and unfortunately I was just an analyst who was part of a group.

    Luckily I was 32 years old then, and I left with $330k in my savings account. I have since left that career field.

  3. It makes me warm inside When I hear him say 70% of institutional hedge fund managers don’t beat the indices…

    my 69% equity growth since January 1st (3.5 months ago) trading simply WTI oil and GBP/USD looks pretty good!

    Obviously I know I’m doing well having been trading for less than two years and reached pretty consistent profit – but put into perspective I’m smashing it.

  4. investing is over. Its trading now. Since algos run the show we are humans. Better than any algo so its very easy to spot inefficiencies in machines. You simply can’t invest you must do trading. 50-100 trades a day is usually where you make the big bucks
