    Not a sign of the times, just someone who beleives that life isn't worth living anymore since he based his sole existence on wealth and nothing more. Either way, there's nothing in life you can't handle. If you need to seek help, that's good, but killing yourself because of finanical reasons is just dumb. Money is going to be made, and money is going to be lost; it's all part of the business cycles.

    Maybe it's only somewhat disturbing because it happened in a foreign country.

    What?

    Don't they have buildings tall enough to jump off of thereabouts?

    The only honorable way for a trader who has lost it all to go is leaping off a skyscraper.
