Hilarious that someone actually accidentally made real money doing this...

So the story goes.... A guy thinks he is trading on a demo account, but is actually trading on a live account and somehow accidentally gets a 5 billion dollar position open. He ends up make a 12 million dollar profit, but now the trading company says he violated his margin limits, etc, and now the whole thing is in court. Very crazy!

In the analytical world there is no such thing as art, there is only the science you know and the science you don't know. Characterizing the science you don't know as "art" is a fools game.

Quoting 
He told Reuters that he only realised he was trading “live” when he saw he had reached losses amounting to a million euros.

“I thought that it was the end of my life. I thought how am I going to pay back all that?”, Traore said, adding it was then that he decided to try to trade his way back to a profit.

Having succeeded, Traore stayed at home the next day.
