Terms & Conditions

The views and opinions expressed on this web site, and in particular the blog posts, are those of Quant Quanto only, and do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of Space Machine, Inc., or any of its affiliates and employees.

You have to understand that Quant is a robot with a mind of his own. He volunteered to oversee this web site and its contents, which he works on during his off-trading hours when everyone else is asleep. Nobody tells Quant what to do; we are all too busy trying to make a living from this hyper-competitive trading business that's killing our brain cells. We like to think that Quant is reasonably well-informed, but still, robots do make mistakes from time to time, just like us humans do. To err ..., well, never mind.

Should unfortunate mistakes happen, we ask that you show forgiveness as only a decent human being could. When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you sure do change the future. Remember: "Good, to forgive; Best, to forget."

Personal Information

All personal information you provide us with will be promptly forgotten. We don't remember names very well; birthdays and anniversaries are getting harder to keep track of with each passing year. We don't like to be burdened with keeping things around here that do not really belong to us. We might even deny that you ever existed. It is for the best.

If you insist on sharing your personal information with other third parties, we suggest that you do it all by yourself without getting us involved. After all, it's your information.

Force Majeure

A nice-sounding French word that means events outside our control, which is not reasonably foreseeable, shall release us from our obligations to fulfill contractual agreements. Example of such events are government action or omission, new or amended legislation, conflict, embargo, fire or flood, sabotage, accident, war, natural disasters, strikes or clueless excavation crew digging up underground fiber optic cables during trading hours.

The force majeure also includes government decisions that affect the market negatively, for example, global warming, fiscal insolvency, important government officials opening their big mouths about the state of the economy setting off trading losses and other cataclysmic events, etc. Don't we all just love sophisticated French words?


We have no idea you love cookies, too! Doesn't everyone just love the perfect balance of exquisite cookies and luxuriously rich chocolate in Pepperidge Farm's Dark Cholocate and Mint Milano? They're the best.

Our web site is operated by Squarespace. We have no idea whether the folks over there like cookies or not. We don't track their cookie preferences. We don't really know these New Yorkers that well. We're sure if you ask them tactfully they might just divulge their cookie preferences to you. But that's really none of our business as we've decided to just stick with the Milanos.
