"We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology." Carl Sagan I'm content in my non-professional trading capacity, but I've been stricken by the fundamental love bug. Three very concrete constants that limit me, however, are: 1) I'll never set foot in an university, not even to utilize the lavatory; 2) I know not which course of finance-specific mathematical self-study to persue to understand and formulate risk-neutral and statistical, probabilistic pricing and evaluation models; 2a) My exposure to formulaic math is minimal. We're talking probably retaking algebra 1 is essential, & I stopped there in school, admittedly. Help plot a course of study for me wont you?
