This guy is your typical wall street trader or market participant. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XruhYQW6unA Notice he talks and looks like crack addict or gambling addict. And yes, gambling addicts are same a s coke addicts. People say doing cocaine is same FEELING as winning the lottery or winning the jackpot! yes it is addicting. notice is ITCHING eyes and mouth...fuck man that is physical effects of this job....laugh likes a drug addict too after smoking pot. estimated 90% of traders become addicted to gambling in the market. and estimatd 90% of drug dealers are drug addicts. that is the dirty little secret they don't tell you when you enter the doors of wall street. why do i post this. some guy in the trading journal section sold his condo for $400,000 and use it to speculate daytrade and lost $300,000 over 3 years!!!!! sounds like what gambling addicts do!! insane. One of the top broker once said: "Only play with money in your brokerage account you cannot afford to lose."
