The theme on this board is risk in all its forms.

What it is, what kinds of it there are, the relationship between risk and return, why when and how to avoid risk, when to embrace risk.

Suggested topics of discussion include:
- What is the "right" risk tolerance to have,
- The "efficient frontier" and other theoretical ideas,
- Relevant books like "Against the Gods"
- Getting to the magical "Northwest Quadrant"
- Hedging strategies: Stop-loss, option buying, futures, taking an opposite position in the relevant index

But any topic relating to risk is welcome.
