    Jesse Livermore death by suicide, but I see red flags when I read:
    He met the American singer Harriet Metz in Vienna. Four times widowed by suicides, she had her own money from those deaths.

    Wien’s smartest guy shows how tough it is to make predictions. Written July 1 he missed the huge Google move.
