    Looking for some people to form a group to look for exploitable patterns in the stock market (or any market). PM if interested, I would bet money that most people on this forum are smarter than billionaire hedge fund managers....

    You should have a requirement that each person that wants to apply has to have seen Pi at least 100 times(this number is negotiable, but only higher, not lower).

    I'm willing to bet that people who are much smarter than most people here have tried (and failed) to do exactly what you're talking about. I don't think it's predictable in the way that you imagine, because of the (evolving) social variables involved.

    Hey that's cool - how did the puts and calls work out that you ordered in anticipation of the earthquake and nuclear problems in Japan? When will the next big earthquake hit California? Any other "social variables" you'd care to share with us after you look into your crystal ball? :motz:
