ETrade Babies Allegedly Ban Barstool Founder Dave Portnoy

Tyler Durden

Despite being born in the middle of the dot-com stock bubble before becoming one of its most uninhibited cheerleaders with a series of ads urging its clients to take reckless risk in pursuit of possibly one day owning a yacht, E*Trade has reportedly decided to cancel the account of arguably its most famous user, Barstool Sports' founder and self-proclaimed "world's greatest day trader" Dave Portnoy.

For those who aren't familiar with the outspoken founder of the Barstool Sports media empire, Portnoy is the self-proclaimed general of an army of day traders hoping to parlay their stimulus checks and unemployment into untold riches. He recently outperformed many professional traders by buying stocks based on letters randomly picked from the scrabble bag.
