A Chance Encounter

I recall reading, but don't recall where from precisely, that the productivity of the city was a function of the number of chance encounters that the residents had. The higher the chance encounters then the higher the productivity.

With that in mind, I am thinking that this thread could be something about encouraging those chance encounters but for the internet. I am thinking of a thread where we share inspirational, informational, and fascinating links/blogs/etc on trading information/materials. It could be on non trading materials if it is inspirational or has a high interesting value. I am interested in unique perspectives.. unique perspectives on the market.. unique perspectives on data...

I will start with a few entries I've scoured that look interesting..

An Introduction To Pair Trading,

A Collection of Resources On Market Micro Structure - could be interesting

Re: A Chance Encounter

This one is pretty good. I usually delete the emails I get about trading in my inbox but I decided to take a look at this one. Some useful tips on Easylanguage in the video.
