A Wall Street Trader Received This Rainbow-coloured Cover Letter

It’s a slow news day, so seeing this is a huge thrill…

A financial industry tipster was kind enough to send  us this e-mail from an aspiring trader.

If you read from the bottom up, you’ll note that Carl asks prospective trader Matthew why he wants to be a trader — could he add a little colour about what he’s passionate about, he asks.

Matthew obliges, and we’re pretty sure “please explain your rationale for the rainbow” is an instant classic.

See below (remember, read from the bottom):
