I heard that many Armenians became wealthy merchants in Europe since Middle Ages like Jews

and there are many wealthy Armenians in the world, right?

Macedonians are very tight with their money, looks as if I'm not the only who's noticed that. ;)

They are so tight that if you put a lump of coal in their arse in a month comes out a diamond.

Armenians have been merchants for centuries, being at the crossroads of the silk road.
Many of the most influential merchants in the Ottoman Empire (pre-early 19th) were Armenians, as were many of the richest men of Tiblissi and even Baku. Armenian merchants also had a thriving community in India back in the day. There are quite a few successful Armenian businessmen and entrepreneurs around the world now too, yes.
A popular joke:
What's an Armenian? It's one who buys from a Greek, sells to a Jew and still makes a profit. :p (all in good humour of course)

As for the ressemblance with the Jews...it's often mentioned because both Armenians and Jews are diasporic nations, both have been through oppression and genocide..but there are still many, many differences.

Yeah, but are they recognized by the orthodox community

Because the FYROMacedonian orthodox church isn't recognized
By the orthodox community
They even put a pope in jail for 7 months just because he was pro serbian and pro-greek.
