Just to add to the LTCM theme here is a link to a podcast I posted several years ago featuring Victor Haghani who was one of the founding members of LTCM, he delves deep into all he learnt about risk management following that disaster and how it can be applied to a typical trading account (if memory serves) 2nd podcast down.

interesting. very similar to the Italian bond divergence that @DanielaIG wrote about all those weeks ago. I would be interested to see the sort of size you could get on IG, the cost to hold the trade for 6 months, and the potential return. Who wants to have a crack at that maths? :P 

wonder if its worth taking on the risk of potential convergence - only the maths will tell

    • Charting the Markets: 28 September FTSE, DAX, and Dow turn lower, with recent gains looking at risk as markets take a turn for the worse. EUR battles to rally against USD, but GBP manages to move up. And sellers rule in gold, while buyers firmly grasp oil prices. https://www.ig.com/uk/market-insight-articles/charting-the-markets--28-september-210928 This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • Why the vaccinated have become super spreaders and a threat to the vaxxed and unvaxxed alike. The possibility of large scale deaths because of the vaccine programme is explored in depth in this video published just a few days ago. But be warned, it's science heavy and 2 hours long.There were warnings by virologists (posted in the 'covid and the economy' thread) when the vax programme was first announced last year that you never start a mass vax programme in the middle of an pandemic.In a mass vax programme you progressively leave the virus with no means of escape while increasing pressure on it to mutate, it's only way to survive is to speed up the rate of mutations to out manoeuvre the vaccine and so create a super infectious vaccine resistant strain that then uses the vaccinated as super spreaders infecting both the vaxxed and unvaxxed. With each attempt to clamp down on the virus with boosters or a new vax the pressure on the virus is increased leading to evermore infectious and dangerous strains.The virologists warned that if a vax programme was carried out they should only vax the vulnerable so viral strains could escape, when they were less infectious, to the healthy unvaxxed who would build herd immunity, the strain then dies out having completing the natural viral life cycle.   Govt science 'experts' knew all this well before embarking on the vaccination programme.
