Christon ‘The Truth’ Jones, an investor and stock market prodigy has been able to make the dollar equivalent of R289 000 from just teaching adults how to trade in the stock market.
According to a report sighted by Briefly.co.za on Blackbusiness.com, the 13-year-old actually aimed at making more but did not get enough people as he imagined.
