Have you seen this guy?

CNBC’s Bob Pisani caught up with the man being dubbed, “Al the Trader” today. Said Al:

We’ve been shaken down here. The American spirit has been shaken. There is a lot of uncertainty. I constantly watch the board myself because a great man who works down here told me that this here’s a book and it tells you a story. If you can go home and figure out what that story was for today, you’re one step ahead of that game.
