This post was written to reply a post in 投资理财 forum about making $1M in a month. I have replied jokingly that I made $1M in April 2017. Here is what I wrote in a follow up with my first reply. 'I was waiting for someone to dispute my claim of making a $1M in April. So far, no one questioned about my claim. Alright, I have to confess that I lied.'.
I don't think that someone who can make a $1M in a month will have time to come to this 投资理财 forum. We all know that it is not easy to make a $1M in a lifetime for most of Americans, much less to make a $1M in a month.
As a Chinese saying '会抓老鼠的猫不会叫', we are just a bunch of people who have nothing to do so that we come to this forum to shoot the breeze. It is a pretty bad manner just for the sake of showing off someone's wealth, but if a person can share his/her experience to show us how to make a million, I would think that he/she is doing a good public service.
Even I lied about making a $1M in a month today, I did indeed make a $1M in a day in my career. I was a head option/future trader for one of top 3 US banks in Hong Kong during the 90s, which was a very exciting time both politically and financially. Hong Kong was returning to China and Asia Financial Crisis was unfolding during that time, we used a position trading strategy during the very volatile Asia Financial Crisis and made a lot of money for the firm.
