Well, they’re at it again; more angry traders riot in Bangladesh. A couple of days ago, the Bangladesh stock market had another flash crash, roughly 10% this time. You may have seen my article a few weeks ago, Traders riot and throw bricks after market tanks, covering the first riot, but this time we have actual video coverage. These Bangladeshi traders take throwing a fit after a bad trade to a whole new level. Here’s a few vidcaps of the news video:
Lower left corner; I'm guessing this guy didn't have such a hot day in the market. Glancing death-stare and folded arms give him away.
A series of bad trades got you a bit hot under the collar? Hey lets find some large wood poles to light on fire. Because it's everyone else's fault I lost money.
Did you go long when you should have been short? No prob. Just destroy a car with a club, and then to add insult to injury, throw a few potted plants on the car. Because, it's the car's fault I lost money.
