Lion2004 is a clueless poster on AnalystForum. He has no real world experience which he evidences by his hyperbolic statements, his version of MBA-speak platitudes and non-insights and his personal distain of others who accept what is offered and work at their career on a practical/ results basis. He on the otherhand waits for offers which won't come, overplays his hand and dismisses successful people who show some initial interest. Here, at age 25 and with no work experience, he elucidates what he would have done had he has his time again (note the impracticality of the plan):

A euphamism on AnalystForum for both a misguided and illthought-out Macro economic projection expressed via the use of unintelligible English. As defined by Cinton's discussion of a profitable trading strategy of Renminbi/ dollar futures and a Renminbi de-pegging.
Now is fries the Chinese dollar (RMB) rise value to be best time several!
Because China Gov’t decided not to increase interest rate although USA rise the int.rate.
Now have massively to buy up the Chinese dollar (RMB), again buys the forward Chinese dollare (RMB) rise value.
Then, you will earn money

The American rise interest 0.25%,
Next time, FOMC meeting on August 04, I believed the USA Congress will rise interest 0.25% again,
The insufficient two months, totaled again added 0.5% int.rate

Because the Renminbi is with US dollar suspension hook,
at the appointed time the Chinese government not possibly again not to rise the interest rate., the Chinese government interest on futures pressure can be very big

Because the Chinese dollar (RMB) is with US dollar suspension hook,
US dollar policy, the Chinese dollar (RMB) is certainly needs to follow,

Because the Chinese government official is the non- economic knowledge,
therefore speech China certainly not to rise the interest rate, they really are extremely stupid, only if the RMB different US dollar suspension hook, then China can not to rise the interest rate.

The RMB is with US dollar suspension hook, China not possibly does not follow the American interest on futures, the monetary policy is not at the China side.

Yesterday (30 June 04) the Renminbi had the little rise

a Gabby McDonal is an irritating Australian troll poster who has a mixture of unjustified national pride, a comically stereotyped view of outside Australia, and is apparently proud of his criminal deportation ancestry.

A Back Office Monkey/ Minion. On an intellectual par with HR workers, this person is either a career B.O.M., or delusionally thinks they have a chance at moving to the front office in one go. Often found studying Level 1 CFA exam in the September to June period year after year.
The new B.O.M. LION thinks he can get a gig on the credit derivatives prop desk, just because he knows how to reconcile a trade!

Pud Icon is an irregular event in a Bay Street Starbucks, in Toronto.
Pud (the Polack) sits in a chair and the Pud Iconesses sit round and hope to hear how they can make the leap from BOM to PM just like The Pud claims to have done. What they don’t know is that he is a charade! In reality, the closest he has gotten to being PM is managing his CAD$2K personal account through Schwab utilizing a ‘pure stock picking approach,’ which in reality is a humble attempt at Canadian index tracking with an overlay of bullshit. Pud's real job is junior sandwich artist manager at Bay Street Subway.
The Pud (posting on analystforum.com):
Any of you care to come to a Pud Icon event at Bay Street Starbucks this afternoon? 5 P.M don't be late - and drinks are on you!
Clueless BOM1: Can you tell me if now is the right time to start studying for level 1?
Slightly less Clueless BOM: Yes I can’t wait! You can tell me how to get out of reconciling soft commodity futures and into sales trading of exotic derivatives! It’s about time I made the move as well!!! P.S. Lion are you coming? Pud can tell you how to get out of the middle office totting up rent cheques?
Clueless BOM2: I just graduated college (Ivey league) with a low GPA and a computer science degree. Pud, how do I get into investment management in one of the legendary Bay Street houses? This is what I have always wanted to do!
Hedgezilla: Pud, why do you bother?
N.B. Not to be confusion with Pop Icon, a British TV show.
