The man who some blame for the Opes Prime collapse, Sydney lawyer turned day-trader, Chris Murphy, took issue with an article regarding his woes on Friday. Shortly after the article appeared, Murphy claimed:
While I consider my remedies you should consider speaking to people you write about or do you fear the truth? I have never called myself a "gun" trader. I have never said to anyone I have assets of $40,000 [sic]. Kerry Packer did not call me a "market genius" but rather said "You know nothing about markets. You've got big balls and you are lucky". I was once lucky but things change and I can handle it.
Oh yes, in addition I have never said my accounts did not exceed their margins. I said that I did not get "margin calls" .
