Rogue Trader

A trader who makes frequent, large, and usually reckless investments without regard for his/her client or institution. The rogue trader does not work in concert or consultation with anyone else, but typically handles other people's money. Obviously, the investments the rogue trader makes are very high risk, and he/she usually ultimately fails. See also: Nick Leason, John Rusnack, Chen Jiulin.
