    If it were an established fund with that sort of record, yes....

    The more interesting thing in the item I forwarded (I'm totally aware of
    how we forget the misses and the impish shine upon this report), is that
    the system that used the standard predictors simply followed the general
    course of the market- and that is, it dwindled, this time.

    The young girl's choices were described as 'random' but, I suspect that's
    a liberty, especially when I see one of her choices is Cadbury
