As I was involved in the financial markets for years I just recently leaned that many professional traders kill themselves as a consequence of turmoil in the markets (stocks or commodities).
This, of course happens in all walks of life. We want to give up living as live becomes a burden, or we perceive ourselves as such to our families.
There is no "sin" in suicide. It is said that people will come back (transmigrate souls) after a suicide in some conditions, as a hunchback. I am not sure if this is true or not, what is certain in
my mind that you cannot escape your Karmic fate by killing yourself. If you need to live through a certain experience for the purpose of learning you will, in your NEXT LIFE, experience the very
same "burden" what your suicide attempted to alleviate.
This seems perhaps harsh for some people to face but in fact all our thoughts and deeds have karmic impact (good AND bad). Do not forget about the good karma part , we cannot go (progress further)
on until the karmic "bank account" is settled, one way or another...
I can understand a person wanting to quit living but know this, suicide as an action also has karmic consequences. Everything has.
