Maybe a weekend with the family and he's been slapped for being on his phone all the time.

Everyone wrote him off already, he has nobody.

He's been doing margin trading on Forex. That's Foreign Currency Exchange. I don't even fuck with forex. You need large amounts of money to make tiny changes in currency pay off. Hence margins, those are loans that let you put just a little money up front to play with lots of borrowed money. The market just fucking took a nose dive.

Yes, but if all currencies went down equally there's no real damage.
