hotmail passwords

<t>I remember hearing about the password jacking trick a few years back but never cared since I've never used Hotmail.

Bloomberg Help

Bloomberg offers multiple ways to get the data into excel. In this case the Excel addin might be your best option. I recommend just using their Live support feature and you can get one of their support people to help you. Or just read their user guide/help thingy. Or just google?

HELP with UK MSc decision!

health care derivatives ?!

<t>Yes I can see excess mortality as a possible asset class that may well see bubble effects. I mean sure there are a heap of companies that claim they can accurately model excess mortality on other personal health care insurance but without their modelling being transparent how can we in any way sa...

lack of liquidity

<t>There is no concrete method for quantitative liquidity and most people will rely on qualitative methods for their selection with regards to liquidity but if some implement it in a quantitative way then that will most likely be using some kind of price reducing function based on the market proport...
