    For the sake of clarification, you say you don’t predict which I think I get, but is it possible that non-predictive is misinterpreted by some as being always without bias?

    Because obviously you have a directional or another kind of bias concerning certain stocks or markets at times.

    If I’m understanding you correctly,it is a but nuanced in terms of how you look at and act in markets , but there is a difference between bias and prediction.

      Perhaps that could be their confusion. But this is pretty industry standard stuff / terms (which as you know, I like to expose people to 🙂 ) … Millennium Management, heck, Bridgestone themselves are BUILT upon that idea.
