197% accuracy?

How is something 197% accurate? Here is an email I received from a PR person at a company trying to sell some automated trading software.

====================

Hello

My name is _____________ and I am the Marketing Director of Global Trader Inc. ( GTI )

We are in the process of submitting our press release to the media and we would like to submit one to World Wide Traders too.

GTI is the developer of a very unique, innovative and intelligent software which gives the traders a clear signal for entry and exit points in stock market. This program has proven results of 197% accuracy. There is no other product like this in the market.

I would like to send more information, along with our press release and an invitation to our demo session, if interested.

Please let me know who I need to contact regarding this matter.

Thank You

Yeah! it's a well know marketing trick "There is luck in odd numbers". Never use a round number but rather an odd number. Coincidentally, 197 is one of them and is often used by marketers. It strikes our imagination.

It's 197% because they're having a two for one special, regularly it's only 98.5%. I bought four because then I get 394%. You can buy more if you want to, but IMO 394% is enough for most traders.

I think it is a typo and should read 297% accuracy.

Mr. Fat Tails, I kindly disagree, let me explain:

Clearly the man stated 197%, now everyone knows that 197% is actually 791% inverted, now
all I have to do is divine from what I know if 791% is a number one would put into his own trading system or to his enemy's :
Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet, because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose 791% . But you must have known that I was not a great fool, and you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose 297% as you state .
Man in Black: You've made your decision then?
Vizzini: Not remotely. Because iocane comes from Australia, as everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you.
Man in Black: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.
Vizzini: Wait til I get going! Now, where was I?
Man in Black: Australia.
Vizzini: Yes, Australia. And you must have suspected I would have known the powder's origin, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.
Man in Black: You're just stalling now.
Vizzini: You'd like to think that, wouldn't you? You've beaten my giant, which means you're exceptionally strong, so you could've put the poison in your own goblet, trusting on your strength to save you, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you've also bested my Spaniard, which means you must have studied, and in studying you must have learned that man is mortal, so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.
Man in Black: You're trying to trick me into giving away something. It won't work.
Vizzini: IT HAS WORKED! YOU'VE GIVEN EVERYTHING AWAY! I KNOW WHERE THE POISON IS!
Man in Black: Then make your choice.


LOL, no offense guys, just wanted to make this more fable (P.S the great Mark Knopfler wrote the music for Princes Bride in 1987)...
