This is the countdown for the Top 5 Successful Forex Billionaires
Jesse’s story is a little different in that he was the most successful Forex millionaire in currency exchange history. You’ll see why he’s on this list. He started early placing his first Forex trade at the age of 15 years old, and was a multi-millionaire by the age of 30. He didn’t become legendary until after making $3 million in one day, this was back in 1902.
He single handedly caused the Forex market crash in 1902, which in 2016 that same $3,000,000 is worth over 80 million dollars (in one day.) Then in 1929 when the entire stock market crashed, starting the Great Depression, Jesse made $100 million in profit. Comparing the difference in inflation from 1929 to 2016, $100 million dollars is worth over $1.4 billion. Forex billionaires don’t get lucky, they get smart. Everything is strategic.
