Rough Trader

02nd Jan 2018

Nick Leeson

Enjoyable tale, well paced and entertaining. Even though I knew the end result I was still barracking Nick. Trading his way out of a loss. It is told from his perspective so he does blame others and sometimes admits responsibility for losing 600M dollars. Amazing insight into future and options trading of the early 90s and the inept management and rough trader that bought down a bank.
