But your own familiarity with them sheds light on your own approach, and simultaneously certifies your ignorance of mine. If you can priovide evidence as a qualified investor, my mark...

What ever happened to FDAX?

<t>"All you guys must be rich, self-employed or out of a job. When do you get time to do other work, instead of trying to save the world?"That would be 'comfortably well-off, thank you' for me, working at starbucks to subsidize failed day trading for farmer, and god knows what else for anyone else.I...

What ever happened to Reza?

"The point of my mentioning this here was that rude behavior, such as yours, is likely to drive away most quality posters."This liklihood is a realized certainty.

What ever happened to Reza?

<t>A quick glance at my Bloomberg screen on Reza (under 'People') indicates that he:a) worksb) works at a highly regarded, very competative firm,c) works in a difficult job.I expect the r-squared on that being the explaination is pretty high.

What are the most important unsolved problems in finance today?

<t>My two:1) is correlation random, 'sticky,' or stationary (we pretty much know it isn't stationary).If it is more than random, and it isn't stationary, then it has some sort of viscosity.

Is Harvard for sissies?

<r>Your "Tue Jul 27, 04 05:19 AM Was Thomas Aquinas a Platonist?" support my summarization that he was, in the end, not. Of your "Five theses about faith and reason (from SCG, Chapters 7-9)"The Straussians don't qualify on number four (4), or five (5). This article amusingly sheds light.<URL url="ht...
