The past few weeks, I’ve had minions all over the world doing my bidding. I am mad with the power! Ok, not really, but it is weird running projects you’ve never actually seen.
The only way to play the market right now. Ah, bullshit, though, about being a pro – you don’t need to be one to play this game. You just need to be smart. It’s the game I’m playing, too – just waiting for another panicky crash, and I’ll be all over it.
