    When you get out, I think you should get a few friends together and start your own MM operation over at the AMEX.

    You'd fit right in!!! :p

  4. Criminals are more likely to gamble without much consideration for risk (an extreme example: bank robbers), often paying attention exclusively on the booty. Professors (those who have at least an inkling of regression analysis) would be more risk averse, and so I would think that while you'll see more number of criminals getting higher absolute returns , professors as a group should be getting much higher risk adjusted returns.

    Hi loza, I'm the large black man w/the shaved head and colorful tattoo covering my whole body that stays 2 cells down from you. You have a cute ass. But down to business. As a fellow trader I have some questions for you: I have a very large account and would like to go long in your market when a nice entry presents itself, taking several different positions, then getting in and out for the quick thrusts until there is a climax, at which time I would pull out, relax, have a cigarette, and wait patiently for another big opening.

    Is this a viable swing strategy?
