Trader: “The Problem Is Ours”

"James Comey’s testimony has been portrayed as the making or breaking of the current presidency.

Former FX trader Richard Breslow is out with a cynical take on "Super Thursday." Basically, he doesn't think there's going to be anything too "super" about it because your silly ass has forgotten that investing is about "employing steely rationality."
