Here’s an interesting article from Bloomberg for a somewhat quieter day than we had yesterday in Asia.

  • “During a decade of day trading, having started more or less from scratch, CIS has amassed a fortune that he says now exceeds 16 billion yen. “
  • CIS, pronounced sis, means death in classical Japanese. The nickname is a holdover from his gaming days, when he used to crush foes in virtual wrestling rings and online fantasy worlds. “Games taught me to think fast and stay calm”

His returns etc. are unverified. Still, a good read.
