Goldman Sachs Sets Record for $100 Million Trading Days

Goldman Sachs (GS) may face bad publicity, hostile Congressmen, and campaigns by shareholders to cut compensation, but it remains a money making machine. The bank has disclosed that it had 131 trading days last year in which it made at least $100 million in net trading revenue -- a new record for the bank. The data comes from the firm's 10-K and was first reported in the FT. The paper points out that Goldman's previous record was 90 days in 2008.
