    Some further questions about the course

    You mentioned basic C++. Our C++ isn't basic C++ so you will learn a ton from a financial application perspective. To bring it to the next level and to be able to get the top C++ dev job, you should take the advanced C++ course. After the first course, you get a good discount for the adv course.

    GameStop GME and WSB saga

    This is true. Retail traders may drive the revolution but there are big players playing both sides of the trade and it's safe to say the biggest win/loss are taken by the biggest players. WSJ has an article about a hedge fund that won 700M on the GME alone...

    GameStop GME and WSB saga

    If anything, I think this is a unique opportunity for more people to learn about complex financial products like options, hedging, shorting, margin, etc. The barrier to more people using such tools has been the perceived complexity and with social media, trading apps and finance forums where you...

    GameStop GME and WSB saga

    There is a lot of FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) in the media driven by the short interest to distract people from buying GME. Such as an article saying GS warns there will be a systemic risk to the global market if short-driven hedge funds go bankrupt. Go figure. Robinhood is allowing...

    The money is real. You can't fake it with the reddit crowd and he has been doing it from day one. His gain is huge but many others have several million dollars gain.

    GameStop GME and WSB saga

    It will be up to SEC to decide but from what I've seen so far, it's hard to say anything done illegally. A bunch of millennials, Robinhood retail traders decide to buy up a stock that is being shorted by many sophisticated big money funds. As a result, many of those shorts took a loss of several...

    GameStop GME and WSB saga

    Has anyone followed the event relating to GME the last few weeks? Or better yet, participated in (and gaining from)? It's very interesting time for sure. You certainly can't model it.
