    If the position was profitable you never would have heard a thing.
  5. Well, if they said that they are going to sell the position out, wouldn't you want to get short in front of/before them. He almost has to say that they don't plan to sell.

    I wonder if she gets a promotion if they actually make money. :)

    Most reverse the position before they send out a press release. :p
  7. "A Taiwan stock trader mistakenly bought T$7.9 billion ($251 million) worth of shares with a mis-stroke of her computer, meaning her company is looking at a paper loss of more than $12 million and she is looking for a new job."


    wait a minute... does she come with a million dollars?? I'll hire her....
  8. The economics of supply and demand say that she would have to hire you. :)
  9. too funny.
