Re: you weenies on strike or sumthin...
Jack traded the bovines...theoretically, he made millions...had he have been a skittish soul he would have lost millions as well. Jack was a friend of a friend...I would get word through my friend...Jacks down x million in the cattle. A while later...Jack's up millions in the cattle.
Jacks secret was really deep pockets...he never sold at a loss because he didn't have to. He was a long term trader, investor, who would just ride it out till he was up.
I never met Jack but I trusted my friend who was not much for making chit up or lying.
Having never met Jack I obviously never saw his charts but I'd bet he just sat back and watched the price. He'd probably just notice that moo's are at historic low levels and buy in...hold until the price was higher, even if it took years. Hard to say for sure but I can see that happening.
