Based on today's price movements, shall we assume the Holy Grail is still yet to be discovered?

(I'm a little surprised at how quickly that one blew up)

Right, todays moves have likely closed the thread.

Can the last one out turn out the light?

Very cool. This is a serious question, so don't confuse it with me being cynical. If you have truly worked out a risk-free arb strategy, why wouldn't you scale up to more than 30% year. I mean if you are trading risk free, or even near risk free, why not 30% per week? Is it a leverage thing? I guess if you're unleveraged, you'd have trouble hitting serious exponential returns. Or are you a fund manager and want to be good, but not too good? Again, serious question.

The ultimate business solution. The ability to cut the cost of any business expense, or just plain invest.

I developed multiple arbitrages that enable me to trade(not invest) in the finacial markets, without risk(The Holy Grail to Investing), or arbitrage that anyone can do. Over 30% a year.

Good Question. Your more opened minded than a lot of others.

First, I did get with a national figure, and all I did was show him a semi-arbitrage(took 8hrs of training). He set me up as a hedge fund manager, and he wanted someone to look over my shoulder, so I turned down the offer. Two reasons I turned him down. I told him I didn't want to let another person have the knowledge. 2nd, I wanted to use the knowledge to help others, and not him and his wealthly friends.

I do use the maximum leverage available to me. In a hedge fund, the leverage available was 50 times funds. They were going to limit me, to a bit less than that.

I developed my first arbitrage in 2000, and implement it in 2001, when I sold my last business. Since then I produced 1% every 10 days.

I am looking for someone to partner in a business, that will be able to cut the cost of any business expense, or to make any product or service very inexpensive to the buyer.

Then I'm wasting my time. I did publish my email, for others that don't have a closed mind.

I'm having a serious case of deja vu here. Medbs has been replaced by thomasadair?

Is this a total wind up?
