Starring Joe “Eddie: Terror Nova with a brand new voice. This Friday November 26th is Day Trading Dad Day.

Seems like every year the hot money is attracted to stoopid the week of and Friday after Thanksgiving. In honor of all of our manias and bubbles and stoopid holiday trading, Eddie explains it in detail.

I think part of the mania is caused by the social part of the scene.
"You just gotta own this name!" works on the week before run-up as people want bragging rights at the family get together.
Then it works on the Friday after when everyone jumps on Cousin Vinnie's bragging about his portfolio after the 9th beer on the Thursday.
"Americans can always be counted on to do the right thing...after they have exhausted all other possibilities."
"You can fool some of the people all of the time."
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."
