17-Year-Old Trading Genius Who “Made ” $72 Million Actually Just “Made It All Up”

Tyler Durden: Yesterday, when we skeptically mocked the NY Mag’s Jessica Pressler coverage of Mohammed Islam, the 17-year-old wunderkind who “allegedly” made $72 million in the market by trading penny stocks, we covered the salient lies and told readers to “feel free to click on the NY Mag’s story about the young “multi-millionaire” – after all that was the whole point.”

Sure enough, in the finest tradition of the New Republic’s Stephen Glass, the entire article was nothing more than one epic big clickbait fest.

Oh, did we mention: completely fabricated clickbait.
