Re: Arbitrage when risk-free portfolio earns less than riskless portfolio

Life is short and there are many interesting things to see and do. For some, leaving is about branching out and seeing what else there is on offer. Not some kind of insecurity or ego issue. : ) Enjoy your day, and remember what Herbert said in Dune: "And what do you despise? By this you are truly kn...

Re: Arbitrage when risk-free portfolio earns less than riskless portfolio

Indeed, duly noted and corrected in the previous post as well. (If someone called me frack-star, crackstar, of hackstar, that would be fine, but not correct.) :D Enjoy the Blue Tits and good to see you here. One of the best things about my groundhogs, chubby as they are, is when I come home in my ca...

Re: Arbitrage when risk-free portfolio earns less than riskless portfolio

frolloos is great, as are all of the others who are seeking life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness elsewhere. I guess it comes down to what building and nurturing a Community means to each of us. Extreme natural diversity (Blue Tits, lavender honey tea, and all) or some kind of cold AI-driven dyst...

A theme song for Fall 2019.  High fidelity (just the way I like it) and the light show is out of this world.

Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

Thanks - just a cameo appearance today but liked that airport quote so much I had to share it here. :D On the census, many moving parts and interesting to see the apparatus at work. One thing you may consider though - even if the printed version of the census questionnaire *that gets mailed to indiv...

Re: Statistical data gather for you

He is just teasing - you would not want to waste too much time digging down on me. And anyway, that is done by invitation only, especially for men from Denmark. ; ) Some of us are or were just here to relax and spend time pleasantly with friends and acquaintances. Here is something for you on your j...

Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

Would this be the wrong time and place to offer an endorsement for the Montevideo Mercado del Puerto parilla? 
Not at all - I just looked it up and it fits right in - so here is a song from Uruguay too.

Hello Forum,  It has been very refreshing to be away from cyberspace, but I have been thinking about you folks and lurking a little sometimes... Aside from daily work and enjoying spring landscapes, I have indeed continued with needle arts; some embroidery, quilting, and knitting. Here is the beginn...

Homotopic groups of knots
Excellent - I can work with those diagrams. I think work in two or three colors - then the complexity stands out even more.

Long drive now, but very happy with these new design ideas from the forum. : )
