Invest Billions. You can easily make it into millions in 5 minutes.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

If I had to assume what he meant:

Investment: “billions”, minimum “billions” = $2B
Profit: “millions”, minimum “millions” = $2M

To profit $2M on a $2B investment is the equivalent of making $1 on a $1000 investment, pretty easy.

There are some fund managers who would love to have known that some years where they had a negative return.

I can pretty much guarantee you that every single fund manager can close his/her book sometime in January if all they aim for is a .1% (1 Tenth of 1%...)  return.

Over what time period? What happens if the market goes down at the beginning of a year and they spend the rest trying to rcoup losses?

In that case you’re right, but managers usually sit in positions medium to long term, any short term trader can turn $1000 into $1001 pretty easily if all they were aiming for was to squeeze out that small gain.

Okay, so why doesn't he do that hundreds of thousands of times and become a guaranteed millionaire?

I'm pretty sure he meant that it's easy to lose money quickly, hence "make it in to millions." Start with Bs and lose lots quickly till you"re left with Ms.

To do that, he’ll need to do that perfect trade (easy once and not guaranteed) a couple of times every week to meet a 10% annual return, investing $2B long term in healthy companies is far less stressful with a far bigger return

Or as the old saying used to go: Q.: How do you make a small fortune investing in airline stocks? A.: You start with a large fortune.

Note that the question was about "how to make a small fortune", not how to profit, or how to earn. Hence the answer is you take a large fortune and you make it into a small fortune.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

That is how I understood it too. On that I asked how one can do that. If you know how to easily lose that much money you should be able to find a financial instument to bet the opposite and make a nice profit.
