That makes it alright then - at 2.50 an entry at today's exchange rate of 0.87 I only need to spend 174m to give myself a 50% chance of winning 112m





Have a good weekend, maybe one of them will, they're probably using our money to play anyway...

Cheers

Your calculation is OK if no edge
If you have an edge, the calculation is off significantly..

Not sure..
everything is not about math

In the subprime they had the math, but the wheel went off

A black swan event, once in a while is worth a bet..
Even if mathematically it does not make sense

I think it just depends on whether you choose to accept what the facts tell you or whether you go with gut (and some rigorous praying). Those at subprime weren't looking or chose to ignore the maths. I don't know enough about it tbh.

Looks like my spinning ball telekinetic interference edge failed, so back to my random Dax trades. Bugger.

Catching black swans needs repeated attacks on an expected tail analysis failure basis, not random pot shots.

Somebody post something else funny soon please, I've derailed this thread enough, sorry.

Cheers

My first one was a Sinclaire ZX-81 with 1K ram, then a commodore 64K ram, then a PC 512K ram, etc...

I can tell you what is the difference between, one, two and more bytes...
my kid doesn't have a clue, with his 128Gb iPhone..
He is playing with Python, R and other tools and doesn't have a clue how we did
with less than a Megabyte of memory...

This is not a joke...
I remember, first HD was 20MB and then we formatted it in RLL and you got 30MB

a 600 MB hard disk, costed like a few thousands dollars in the early 90's
imagine, i could not even put all of the futures data on that HD, it would but full !!!!!!
with a single day of data



but if you look at these adds,
this is so hilarious
and it's only like 25 years ago
and then this was serious business !
