Not sure I hit the right thread, but interesting more or less trading money management story. A friend who trades using IBD and position trading decided to try an experiment with the lottery. He has been playing for the last 3 months, and is ahead $300+ . He is charting numbers and spent some time going through historical number draws, and is playing based on most common occurences of numbers. He also maintains recent draws and does some kind of discount(not sure if that would be correct term) based on recent history to account for when numbers were drawn. He obviously isn't getting rich, but at the same time would this qualify as statistcally significant, as he is ahead. To me it is intersesting as for no other reason as does it make lotto land predictable? I'll try to update, but he is not real keen on sharing as he feels it may change how the lottery people operate. I found it fasicnating.
