Quote:Teen admits $72 million stock gains all fake:

Stuyvesant High School student Mohammed Islam has admitted that a New York magazine report that he made $72 million trading stocks was fake, according to an interview published on the New York Observer's website Monday. When asked if the stock gains were "total fiction," Islam admitted he had invented the story and that he has only taken part in simulated trades with his high school club, the report said. "My friend's father worked at New York magazine, and he had the reporter contact me," Islam was quoted as saying. He reportedly added that his parents were furious about the report, saying, "my dad wanted to disown me."

No, most brokers offer an account called a "custodial account" opened under the parent's name. It's what I have.The minor still has access to the account to place trades and what not, just not under their own name.

Now I'm not hating when I say this but, wheres the proof of $72,000,000?

Read this excerpt from Timothy Sykes blog post,

Quote:But the #1 story of the day today is about a teenager Mohammed Islam who supposedly made $72 million written about HERE and HERE…and the funny part is that someone with the same name who went to the same high school (Stuyvesant High School) emailed me a little over 2 years ago asking for help learning how to trade, saying he had $1,000 to his name…how he wants to make his family proud, become a millionaire, yada yada yada.

Now we see these stories popping up about how rich he is and I don’t believe it for one second. I have worked my ASS OFF to make a few million dollars and I know my trading challenge students have worked hard too.
