When Day Traders Occupied Wall Street

"They were Maschler's bandit army, the rejects of Wall Street, the city college kids from the backwaters of Staten Island, Queens, and the Bronx, the ones who didn't stand a chance at a big bank like Goldman or Morgan.  Dumb boiler-room mutts--but they had a secret weapon:  Josh Levine.  With Levine creations such as the Watcher and the Monster Key at their fingertips, they could out-trade the very best in the business.  They could grind Goldman to a pulp. They could make Morgan cry."  [page 100]

It was about time.
