Thanks for the link! I enjoyed the analysis, and it left me wanting more discussion beyond the average return and standard deviation. So it inspired me to make the Risk & Return calculator. (Here's a detailed explanation). It will help you quickly generate similar charts for lots of different metrics.

Tyler, I remember in your interview you said you studied mechanical engineering.

I was recently watching National Treasure, and the main character, Benjamin Gates, studied mechanical engineering. It's a movie where there's this mechanical engineering graduate, a treasure consisting of tons of gold, and all this talk about American history is being thrown about.

Since then, whenever I see you post, my mind assigns this image of Nicolas Cage as being on the other side of your avatar. ;D ;D ;D

I suppose the mind does weird things when you've never met someone in real life.

I officially declare National Treasure to be the official HBPP movie.

You must watch it once annually to maintain your forum membership.
