Financial Trader Shoots Himself in Stock Exchange

 

A 36 year old trader attempted suicide by shooting himself while working in Sao Paulo's commodities and futures exchange. The representative of bank Itau shot himself in the chest and is now in a critical condition.

Witnesses said the man, Paulo Sergio Silva, tried to take his own life in the interest rate futures pit where $21 billion in trading takes place every day.

The global financial crisis has hit Brazil hard, with a 50% loss since its all-time high in May and the nations currency losing a third of its value since August.

  A long way to fall.  
 
Sao Paolo's a harsh place to those without money. To fall from a state of almost untouchable god-hood to the favelas is crushing.

Many have taken their own lives for less. I couldn't - and wouldn't want to even try to - complate what the man felt.

  If he did it due to a bad financial situation...  
 
It's going to be a Lot worse for him if he survives and has to pay that massive hospital bill too.

  They always said...  
 
money is the root to all evil.

Money now means murder and suicide, what a great thing the buck is.
