trade rage

n.
Extreme anger generated by personal stock market losses.
Example Citation:
"Day trading is a sucker's game, as people learned in the summer of 1999, when Mark O. Barton opened fire in two Atlanta day-trading shops, killing nine people and injuring 12 others. Barton, after flushing his life savings down the high-tech toilet, was more demonstrative than his colleagues, but many of them must have been feeling their own 'trade rage.' Ninety percent of the players mousing around in electronic bucket shops lose money, and the sport is no less perilous when played at home."
— Thomas A. Bass, "Don't Quit the Night Job," The New York Times Book Review, April 23, 2000
