His Wiki page says: I realize that his Startup hedgefund closed shortly after he was featured on Wall Street Warriors, but he was ranked top on Covestor in 2010. You can make only so much money selling alerts and DVD's. How is it possible to make more selling alerts than trading when you're a top trader? Doesn't he run a hedge fund? If not, wouldn't a hedge fund want to hire him right away? If it is that he wants to be his own boss and doesn't want all the hassle with running a hedge fund anymore, then he should have enough capital to trade for a living than selling alerts because his hedge fund only lost one third of its value when it closed.
