About time - EURCHF almost -40%, then retraceshttp://www.bloomberg.com/news/2015-01-15/snb-unexpectedly-gives-up-cap-on-franc-lowers-deposit-rate.html When I created my username, it was getting close enough. It was the most fun day of my relatively short FX career, watching EURCHF move all the way up after getting oh so close to parity. In... 1 year 3 weeks

Here's something I REALLY hate in all websites...Here's something I REALLY hate in all websites that try it (which now includes WSO): don't mess with the scroll! There is literally no reason to do this. You can use home and end or page down/up to fast-scroll, and having a different UX to 99.9% of websites out there is just going to confuse... 1 month 4 days
Just taking SQL - or more specifically,...Just taking SQL - or more specifically, understanding relational databases - it gives you a means of manipulating and understanding data very fast and very reliably, much more so than Excel. Simple example: the vlookup. It's actually a form of left join. Except let's say you're doing a vlookup on a... 5 months 2 days
One more: understand volatility. Read Taleb's "...One more: understand volatility. Read Taleb's "Dynamic Hedging" which is still the most intuitive text on the idea. Life is probabilistic, not deterministic, it's about maximizing odds, not doing things and getting certainly rewarded for them. There is no "path", only a set number of mutually... 5 months 2 days

I'd say the people whose pride I've really hurt keep me up at night more than any other memories, especially the women. And of course, being a dick gets you burned out of... 5 months 2 days
The Instagrams and Snapchats (and even WhatsApp,...The Instagrams and Snapchats (and even WhatsApp, despite its generating cash flow almost from the start) do not "need to monetize". They are much more valuable doing what they are attempting to do: divert a significant amount of consumer attention from Facebook and Google products whilst getting... 6 months 5 days

The Great Wall is a 1-2h minivan ride from Beijing, so you can go walk amongst the massive crowds and admire the nothingness on both sides. It is somewhat worth it, although I wouldn't go to Beijing just for it (... 6 months 1 week
Glengarry Glen Ross is about people being put in...Glengarry Glen Ross is about people being put in a situation where there is no exit (the leads suck, they can't get more leads, they're too old for another job), and then being pressured to do the impossible. It's a typical left wing "life sucks and you can't do anything about it" movie. Like... 6 months 2 weeks
The fascinating thing about Breivik and what your...The fascinating thing about Breivik and what your discussion is missing out is that he planned it out from the start. Key to his manifesto were: 1. he intended to strike a blow to left wing politics in Norway for three decades 2. he wanted to show how easy it was for someone with a decent IQ... 6 months 2 weeks
Friends depend on who you are and your values...Friends depend on who you are and your values really. I've met thousands of people, I know where to poke to get people to show their colours quickly, and if they align with mine we usually keep in touch. The great thing about Singapore especially is how little race matters (and other groups,... 6 months 2 weeks
