Risk vs Volatility vs Liquidity


Recommended Posts

What is the chance of an event? 

Risk is the chance of a Queen on the next draw.  Uncertainty is the chance of a woman walking on Mars before 2100.

By definition, we're picking a number between 0 and 1.


But what is the cost of needing the money next Tuesday - not Thursday, as they promised?

What if I lose $100,000 but you lose your trust in yourself?

Is variance the same as risk?


I reckon that time is another word/synonym for chance/probability.

We can move around in x,y.z co-ordinates. But in the other co-ordinate, we can only move in one direction because of probability: the decision of an event, roll of a die.


BTW, I've never liked the Cartesian  x-y plane.  It cannot show negative roots.

IMV, our entire notation in mathematics is based on money and trade.
