    Trading Systems - Putting it all together

    Occupy Wall St.

    I thought that was Buffet who lent $5 bln to GS back in 2008. He also lent the same amount to BofA this year.

    Anyone has their own website?

    I do not see this website making big - it's too much hassle. Buyers will go to amazon instead with wide selection and where most people already have an account. Besides, it does look like a pyramid.
