Another Annoying Aspect of Bloomberg

September 20th, 2006, 12:22 am

I find the Bloomberg screens more or less easy to look at. Their website, however, even though it is the same orange-on-black color scheme, really bugs the shit our of me.

Is there a not-well known trick to identify who are people behind their identification numbers in the IB, please?

yeah, all those sports heroes, like getting a blue from Oxford or a pink in judo from TCD (like Samuel Beckett did).

BTW quite a few traders who take my online courses do Brazilian jujutsu, Mai-Tai, kicking stuff and normal boxing. There's a pattern.

Out of those I definitely prefer Mai Tai. Although if hitting needs to be involved, a punch, preferably made with dark rum and a grating of nutmeg, as they make it in Grenada.

Doesn't sub-7-min leave a lot of space for pretty average runners?

She's saying that "a lot of big platforms that can trade across asset classes have mechanistic stop losses whereas one of the things the team and i have already focused on is making sure that when there's a dislocation we are prepared to not just double down but tripe down when the facts and circumstances support that".
I have a phylosafi... (damn!) question: para mi, the market belongs to the same universality class of complex systems which I modelled in physics and social sciences (animal populations, societies, crystals with very complex physics, etc.). They generally exist at the border of the deterministic chaos - partly random and partly constrained by strong interactions. Their mathematics disregards the nature of "facts and circumstances" - if you poke them beyond some threshold, they will roll according to (one of) the trajectories in their phase space - no way back. Where does the "reasonable" part sounding in the above quote come from? At first, I'd suspect it's some sort an illusion coming from survivor bias.

BTW, if one figures out the trigger mechanisms (like reversing the seed of RNG based on numbers it returns) and try to game them, no?

(I hope I can edit this post after I manage to get some sleep...)
