A burger van owner is considering hanging up his apron after making a £9million while trading stocks and shares online.
Stephen Bliss, 34, manages his trading fund at night from his home in Redcar using the social platform eToro.
Firstly, the entire piece reads as an ad for that trading platform. Secondly, and candidly, he’s not made that amount at all.
Currently, almost 7,000 people have invested in Mr Bliss’s fund which has a value of $12.75 million – £9 million.
He’s managing £9 million for mug punters.
Hmm. That’s fun actually. So, this platform, what’s the manager’s take on such a fund? One answer would be not much, given that he’s working in a burger van. Another could be ….well, anyone want to go find out? 2 and 20 would be fun, no?
My guess would be that you cannot charge a fee because FCA or summat.
