This is Not a Market

FacebookTwitterGoogle+LinkedinTumblrFlattrDiggRedditPinterestStumbleUponemail René Magritte La trahison des images 1929   “[Price discovery] is the process of determining the price of an asset in the marketplace through the interactions of buyers and sellers”, says Wikipedia. Perhaps not a perfect definition, but it’ll do.
