the example investor in the new ameritrade website tutorial has quite an account.
this leads me to wonder. it’s a rather impressive sum. a billion dollars. is this a lure to get people to think that they too can be mr. buffett if they just sink enough money into the maw of the market? is it irony, to point out that the american fantasy would more likely involve greenbacks instead of sex? is it a typo? we meant to give him/her only the high six figures, oops. our bad.
what could it be???
