No, no, this isn’t about being a bear. This post is little more than a hyperlink – – but what a link it is! I just stumbled upon this jaw-dropping story about a family who immigrated to the U.S. and had built up a nice little real estate business, having come from El Salvador with nothing. Regrettably, they decided a couple of years ago to dump all their properties ($1.5 million worth) and try to make a much larger fortune by day-trading and, later, options. You can probably guess what happened, but give this a read.
