Who is Profiting Billions by Trading on Insider Information from Trump?

From the article:

[T]he SEC or CFTC would be doing a great service (and their job) for the American people by investigating who is behind these lucrative trades, and what they knew before they placed them. At the moment, what we’re getting from them is an indifferent shrug.

Federal regulators might start here: In the last 10 minutes of trading on Friday, August 23, as the markets were roiling in the face of more bad trade news, someone bought 386,000 September e-minis. Three days later, Trump lied about getting a call from China to restart the trade talks, and the S&P 500 index shot up nearly 80 points. The potential profit on the trade was more than $1.5 billion.

People make millions in the market every day.

It's called taking a risk and getting lucky.

There is absolutely no proof of anything in that article and it's just another liberal lie to try and tie Trump into something illegal.

No proof, but I hope somebody from the SEC is looking into it. That's what we pay them for...to investigate possible insider trading and other sorts of wrongdoing.

Why wouldn't they be looking into it unless there is nothing there.

They are extremely skilled at this and this is what they do every day.

Why not wait until they provide evidence and present a case before people start spouting off about an illegal activity they have no clue about?

I find it hilarious that an author of an article is going to try to present a case when he has absolutely no clue about anything and you guys believe it hook, line, and sinker.

This is the reason he wrote it because he knows you guys will lap it up and think it's real.

You all are like Pavlov's dogs.

Ring that bell and you come running.

Three times since Trump has been in office, one trade has netted billions in profit. Many more times, millions. All tracking information Trump had not yet made public.

This cannot be innocent.

Trump says deliberately provocative things, on a fairly regular basis, that have a predictable effect on the markets. You think he's scrupulous about avoiding telling his friends what he's about to do? Previous presidents tried to avoid saying things that would drive markets up or down. For Trump it's a monthly occurrence. Just smells funny, is all.
