Am I the only one NOT getting the chart? All I get is a black line.

The problem with this theory is that it equates volatility (SD) with risk. If this basic premise is incorrect, then the whole "efficient market frontier" theory fall apart.


Jan from SVK posted over 3 years ago:

I agree with Praveen.
Let's consider this idea. MPT is based on so-called "buy and hold" strategy, where risk (volatility) is inevitable part of every given financial instrument and this risk is tied to the given expected return on investment. What if there is a theory that focuses on actively managing both sides of every investment: return and risk. By managing (via active trading or speculative investing), you can separate these two sides of every coin and deal with them through diferent risk management and trading tools. You can definitelly get better results...
