Assassination at the NYMEX

From the new book, The Futures: The Rise of the Speculator and the Origins of the World's Biggest Markets by Emily Lambert:

A disheveled gold trader had apparently spent the day trying to start rumors to get the price of gold to go up. ‘I had to kill the president three times to make a buck today.’

Also from the book:
If your first name was Murray, you went to the CME. If your last name was Murray, you went to the CBOT.
