Resident expert in all things gekko
I watch the movie WallStreet almost weekly. I have done so for the last 3 years. There are nuggets there. There are also major learning lessons in the Forbes list. I spot the steady players and read up on em. No Joe Kumars there.
I also started playing with the "gekko" character online by playing with the name a bit. Even giving him his own website.
Who knows. Maybe there someday.
I LOVE this forum...
