EDINBURGH — James Gubb is a highly experienced stock market trader who has turned to fine art – painting and other ethereal techniques and materials. He has executed a truly masterful piece of protest art aimed at helping South Africans join the dots about the Zuma, Gupta and other families in the state capture web of deceit. In a series of trades of the Oakbay stock, he has produced a graph that literally gives the Gupta family the middle finger. The Financial Services Board (FSB) hasn’t appreciated Gubb’s combination of art and mathematical genius. Nor has it joined the dots. Instead, it has levied a hefty R100k fine on James Gubb. Others, meanwhile, who have genuinely benefited from insider trading and foreign currency plays go unpunished. – Jackie Cameron

Travesty when you read the reports about how the Guptas manipulated the share price via Singapore

The Financial Services Board (FSB) has been singularly delinquent in its duties in recent years which is why a whole mob of criminals have been allowed to prosper at the expense of SA.

Perhaps the activities of the FSB and its (captured?) operatives need to be examined.

I would say they haven't been delinquent and more that they've been captured

This is just so beyond awesome. I hope someone does something about helping him with his fine if it isn't rescinded.

Someone should set up a crowd funding dingus to help him pay the fine. Thats fantastic work.
