12 Hilarious Wall Street Twitter Accounts

U.S. stocks are ending a volatile 2018 on a low note, and expectations for 2019 have also been on the decline. A lackluster year and a bleak outlook is certainly nothing to laugh about, but long-term investors should remember to keep things in perspective. Despite disappointing market returns, there are still plenty of things to laugh about on a daily basis when it comes to the often absurd world of Wall Street.

Here’s a look at 12 Wall Street Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) accounts that will put a smile on your face even on the reddist days in the market.

RampCapital - @RampCapitalLLC

Ramp Capital’s Twitter account certainly doesn’t pull any punches, and its followers always stay both informed and entertained. Make sure you have an eye for sarcasm, however, or you’ll have a tough time sorting through the mix of both real and fake news.

Wu-Tang Financial - @Wu_tang_finance

Fans of “Chapelle’s Show” might recognize the name of this parody account. For the uninformed, the Wu-Tang Clan was once one of the most popular hip hop groups in the world back in the 1990s, but they have since branched out to apply their talents to the world of finance. Or so the story goes.

Katie Martin - @katie_martin_fx

Financial Times capital markets editor Katie Martin is known for her stellar technical analysis, identifying often-underutilized chart formations such as the “dinosaur” pattern, the “duck” formation or her trademark “vomiting camel” bearish signal. Martin’s success as a technical analyst eventually led to her declaring herself CIO of Vomiting Camel Asset Management.

Downtown Josh Brown - @ReformedBroker

CNBC "Halftime Report" contributor and Ritholtz Wealth Management CEO Josh Brown is known for his dry, sarcastic sense of humor. Brown loves to tweet his take the market, politics and even sports.

Quoth the Raven - @QTRResearch

Zero Hedge - @zerohedge

Zero Hedge is a financial markets blog that doesn't pull any punches in expressing its cynical views about the world of finance. The company's Twitter account often points out conspiracy-minded theories and hypocrisy among market experts in a brutally funny manner.

John_Hempton - @John_Hempton

Australian investor and CIO of Bronte Capital John Hempton has amassed more than 30,000 Twitter followers thanks to his light-hearted market analysis. Hempton is also known for correctly predicting the downfall of Valeant Pharmaceuticals as far back as 2014.

GSElevator - @GSElevator

The hilarious premise behind GSElevator is that the Twitter feed contains transcripts of conversations overheard in an elevator at Goldman Sachs. Goldman reportedly actually launched an internal investigation to identify the employee behind the account, but the brains of the operation turned out to be former bond executive John LeFevre, who never actually worked for Goldman.


Any investors who also work in the tech world will enjoy this spoof account run by the CEO of a PHP software company. The account routinely targets the absurdity of the tech business culture.

Bored Elon Musk - @BoredElonMusk

Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is one of the most creative and polarizing characters on Wall Street. Musk famously doesn't have much down time, but when he does, this parody account is filled with some tremendously innovative ideas that may eventually change the world just as much as commercial space flight or driverless cars.
