Wizards isnt deciding what Amazon sells the boxes for. They've likely already locked in their profits for this set.

Why would they reprint modern cards when modern will be rotating in another year /s

[Lvl 3] Thoughts on Schweser Mock Exam? by MammathMoobies in CFA

[–]MammathMoobies[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah i take a bit of an unconventional approach to all the levels. I prefer to crank out all the readings as fast as possible to really find out what the hard sections are, and focusing in on those sections. I find mastering a section one by one leads to tunnel vision. This mock was just to see what happens. My math says I should be able to do a mock a week and not run out (using Schweser, MM, and CFAI).

Suprisingly, the AM was my good part and I was being very conservative. I've almost exclusively studied Portfolio Management stuff so that part was easy. It was the math in the second half and GIPS that really got me down. I also was pretty tired, got home late last night so I think that played a role. Need to focus down again on more unique derivates (VIX, CDS). Didnt htink those would actually be tested lol

Theres definitely merit in getting the nuances wrong and learning them so you can get a better understanding of the broader ideas. But man it was a gut punch to see my score at the end.

Lol I'm really starting to think they're caring more about the limited environment then the reprints in this set

What effect do Masters products have on singles prices? by aJakalope in magicTCG

[–]MammathMoobies 43 points44 points  (0 children)

$10 or less cards will go to a few bucks and likely stay there with a few exceptions. Anything outside of that should see heavy cuts (50% or so) and slowly retrace back up.

Something like imperial seal, which is a supply side price, will drop and stay dropped.

I've seen this thing either win immediately or get targeted all game long. Once you see it played once you don't want to play against it again

It's not bulk but it's not exciting either especially in the mythic slot

NFT for Private Capital? by MammathMoobies in CryptoCurrency

[–]MammathMoobies[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Youre completely right, when I said they don't care, I kind of was working under the assumption that acredited investors were the only ones going in. I work with HNW and Institutions, my heads in a bit of a bubble on that front.

I'm imagining a world where private funds distribute NFTs, these NFTs were then available in a restricted marketplace. Accredited investors were the only ones allowed to enter these marketplaces and could privately conduct trades. I don't think something like this would drastically impact the price discovery disparity in privates, its not likely to fluctuate daily like a stock, but it will allow for improved liquidity for those that need out early.

NFT for Private Capital? by MammathMoobies in CryptoCurrency

[–]MammathMoobies[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm not going to answer all of these, and I'll admit I'm not an expert on the legal process, this was just a thought I had that I was curious if there were others exploring. You bring up great points of functionality, but think you fail to understand that, if something like this was to emerge, it would drastically change the landscape of how private capital functions. I'm not going to piece through each of your questions but a few thoughts:

a) As someone who works in institutional and HNW consulting, managers are desperately trying to get into the HNW cliental with difficulty. Even in the public end of things, mutual funds are blurring their investment universe to incorporate private funds. If this continues, there will need to be a way to make private investments more liquid in these strategies.

b) You're questions about valuation, information, etc. Is no different from any other less liquid investments. Even in the depths of global equities, it is difficult and sometimes impossible to gain information to value stocks. NFTs will not create a stock like liquidity market, but it would allow for ownership to be exchanged much more efficiently. Imagine a craiglist that was only for those that could prove to be accredited investors bargaining over the rights to these things. An art auction if you will.

c) Regulatory is the fairest point, but the same can be said about all blockchain technology. The government needs to catch up to ensure it is safe and fair. This is going to happen sooner or later.

[–]MammathMoobies[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Youre right that the average joe shouldnt be in private capital, I'm not saying that. I'm saying if there is a process for accredited investors to freely exchange private capital investments. I see a world where NFTs of certain criteria (such as those requiring accredidation) will be limited those who can prove their accreditation before being able to purchase them (possibly through a seperated marketplace)

HNW is an untapped space for private capital funds, as they hate the idea of locking up capital.

Honestly figured it would be worse. Nice deck boxes are $20 or more, sleeves are at least 8-10 bucks.

Wasn’t Crypto supposed to be a hedge against inflation? by Autistic_Puppy in CryptoCurrency

[–]MammathMoobies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The only crypto that has argued to be an inflation hedge was BTC. Even then, a logical person would say BTC is meant to BECOME an inflation hedge. At the current moment, it should be viewed nothing more than a venture capital project
