Here’s the perfect portfolio for 2012 you failed to create. It’s that time of year again, when traders tended to square up their positions and await the imminent implosion of the US financial system.

Here’s the perfect portfolio for 2012 you failed to create

We figured it was worth showing you how you could have constructed a world-beating portfolio that would have destroyed the competition in 2012. Looking back, it seems painfully obvious that one only needed to: - dive into risky government bonds of countries such as Italy and Greece - buy European stocks at the peak of the crisis - carefully select assets denominated in Hungarian forints - toss some money into risky European asset-backed securities - go all-in on soybeans and Turkish stocks It was, let’s face it, a no brainer. Emerging market bonds (that’s the EMBIG) and European stocks were, broadly speaking, the big asset class winners this year.

Thank goodness all of my assets are denominated in Hungarian forints. And what’s not in forints is obviously in soybeans. As well as Turkish stocks, while skillfully ignoring Ukranian stocks. Kevin Slavin: How algorithms shape our world.

Grasping Large Numbers

Whether describing the vastness of the stars or the microscopic intricacies of the human body, the need to use large numbers is often inevitable. When we consider the estimated 200,000,000,000 (200 billion) stars in the Milky Way Galaxy or the estimated 150,000,000,000 (150 billion) galaxies in the universe or the estimated 100,000,000,000,000 (100 trillion) cells in the adult human body, we are forced to use numbers so large we cannot comprehend their meaning. Let’s try to use our imaginations to place some of these large numbers in perspective. (In so doing, we will use the American nomenclature for large numbers described below.) We will use money as a teaching tool to illustrate the magnitude of large numbers. Money Stacks One way to better understand large numbers is to compare the heights of stacks of varying numbers of dollar bills.

The height of a stack of 100 one dollar bills measures .43 inches. Money Carpets Money Lines 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. American Express Credit Cards, Business Services, and Travel Ser.
