So how does the scam work, exactly? How would I know? All I know for sure is that: 1] just like everyone else, he's acting purely out of self interest[no differently from anyone who takes the course] 2] The principle of "financial engineering" itself is fraudulent. A person might just as ...

The program is free . Who's scamming what out of whom? Besides, it's not like they need the money. Google "worldquant tulchinsky". No, it's not free. Each individual must give up some of their [presumably valuable] time to complete _any_ such "free" course. And, if they do give ...

OBF, here's a quick Excel exercise. Portfolio of size 100 rebalanced equally between 4 assets once a year. First two assets lose 10%/yr. The other two assets remain unchanged in price. Decimals not shown for clarity and due to limited formatting features. Portfolio goes down to 21 after 30 years. T...
