"I only come here to piggyback on the trades," says the guy who is missing out on the most valuable parts of this site. Teach a man to fish, and all that. For the furtherance of my education and yours, here are some things open in my browser right now that are worth reading:

- Euromoney, " FX vol enters the dead zone" - Notes on Deutsche Bank's Alan Ruskin on FX volatility, basically giving more justification for the long vol calendar spread we opened yesterday in EUR/USD.

- Nemo, " Cryptography Part 2: More rambling" - this is fun reading on its own terms, but also think about familiar technical analysis indicators and the idea of a set of numbers (and hence indicator inputs and functions) being closed under basic operations.

- Isomorphisms, " Entropy and the Labour Market" - how easy it is to destroy, how difficult to create, complexity, Hayek, labor markets, "I earned this," and does kindergarten contribute more economic value than all the math taught in school?

- Dugger and Ubide, " Structural Traps, Politics and Monetary Policy" - "[I]n a structural trap, extremely loose monetary policy perpetuates deflation and low GDP growth, because unproductive but politically important firms are allowed to survive and capital reallocation is prevented." via The Contrarian Corner. This is an interesting viewpoint - neither the fatally and eternally vapid "QE means hyperinflationary doom" goldbuggery, nor the casual overconfidence of Keynesianism.

- Stachurski and Sargent, Quantitative Economics - like it sounds, some lectures on quantitative economic modeling, done in Python. I've only skimmed this but it looks great.
