From Sensible to Silly

Once I had reached crazy-high amounts of equity, though, I started going bonkers, putting out nine-figure bets on very short-term moves. This has made the equity curve go absolutely berserk.

Maybe this is what it’s like to be really rich – – running the risk of feeling invincible, and therefore taking absurd, irresponsible risks. Good thing it’s all fake!
