This is a link post Dortmund bus attack not ISIS
It was a stock market trader wanting to push share prices

Can we finally classify them as terrorists now?

This is a normal post Indeed, German traders are indeed dirty terrorists.
Not to be confused with our British freedom fighter traders.

This is a normal post Don't agree
If you're born in Russia, you're called Sergey, you're involved in a large financial scam and you're blowing people up? That's got Russian written all over it.

This is a normal post traderphobia
only a tiny tiny number of traders are terrorists. It is the traders who suffer most as a result of extremist traderist attacks.

This is a normal post It's their own fault for not speaking out against traderist attacks.

This is a normal post this canard again
do you 'speak out' everytime someone cacks themselves in a drunken stupor? Do you speak out everytime someone is sick on a night bus?
No, you don't. typical b3tard double standards.

This is a normal post I speak out against those things
But no-one listens because they are too busy cacking themselves whilst being sick.

This is a normal post doesnt say how much he would have profited by
Dont know much about how it works but cant imagine it was very much if the stock only dropped from 5.7 to 5.4 and his stake was only 65,000

This is a normal post I'm thinking if his great trade is based on bombing a bus,
he wasn't what you call a great trader. Bombing buses isn't alpha. It's just leverage in a short skirt.

This is a normal post On the basis of those figures he be just over 5% better off I reckon.
So maybe around 3250 to the good, which I'm not sure would cover the cost of the transaction or other charges.

This is a normal post explosive charges for one.
I suspect he was expecting the boom to be more big badda boom and the price to drop further.

This is a normal post Do you think he had the chance to close out his position before they slapped on the cuffs?

This is a normal post I have no idea what "close out his position" means but I'm guessing it's some deviant sexual practise.

This is a normal post When you short...
Your stake is basically the maximum you can make. You are selling shares someone else owns at today's price with a promise to buy the shares back within a certain time period and hand them back. You then trouser the difference.

The most he could have made was 65k.

This is a normal post That assumes the share price drops 100% to zero.
Under such extreme circumstances I think the deal might just be null and voided in the small print.
(, Fri 21 Apr 2017, 10:40, Reply)
This is a normal post Indeed it does.
Seems like a huge amount of effort and risk for a maximum potential gain of 65k.

This is a normal post I was surprised he could find a bank or fund to short with when his capital was so low and was leveraged.
Anyway, this game is about yield not the pound note figure.

This is a normal post And now he can look forward to yielding his bum in the prison showers for the rest of his life.

This is a normal post yes, but it's always leveraged.
In this case he was trading options contracts - which are leveraged anyway - and probably trading on margin so perhaps a tenth of the contract up front.

This is a normal post Yes.
What I meant was he had no capital at all so he took a loan to even get the deal set up.

This is a normal post So really he stood to make fuck all.
He should have just mugged old ladies coming out of the post office.

This is a normal post As I understand it from what I've read, yes.
Frankly it all sounds rather implausible. I very much doubt he was short selling. He was probably spread betting.
