    Wasn't Robert Rubin involved with CBOE in its early days? I remember being somewhat surprised as I'd assumed he was always a NYC Wall Street guy.

  2. Wall Street and CBOE became very much one in the same when the member firm community embraced listed options. Three of the chairman came off of Wall Street.

  9. 1995 was a unique, golden year, and era, in history...the birth inception year of mainstream PC Windows 95 use and widespread internet and the first year of the tremendous bull market lasting till 1999.

    I can only imagine how much money I would have made then if I were trading in that optimal crazy perfect storm of an environment. -- Knowing what I know now, applied then.
    Back then, I was just a young teen...preoccupied with Sega Genesis and internet porn and computer games and bodybuilding. :confused:

    1995 was a bright, promising, happy year.

    Soundtrack song to the Pierce Brosnan movie: Night Watch, 1995.
    Part of the plot of the movie centers around making a bundle in the stock market through the tapping of phones. and a satellite. and art paintings. The movie takes place in NY, Amsterdam and Hong Kong.
