A technicians technician........Ralph

Ralph Acampora and I worked at Kidder Peabody at the same time, a long time ago.

I remember his great fun and humor first and secondly, his office, in the guts of a bank vault at 20 Exchange Place in the bowels of lower Manhattan. His war room was just that.

Protection from the market when it does its usual gyrations. And probably from Dick Kimball who went from investment strategist to retail producer.

I wonder if Ralph ever made any serious money trading his own money and if he was a good analyst/trader/technician (not that they are one and the same, far from it), why is he still working at a firm and not for a trading partnership where he gets a piece of the trading profits?
