Jockey Mario Gutierrez pushed race favorite Nyquist (3/5) out of the gates and was pushed by Uncle Lino, but eventually ran out of steam. He crossed the finish line third behind Cherry Wine.
Exaggerator stormed through the slop and mud at Pimlico Race Course to topple nemesis Nyquist and win the 2016 Preakness Stakes. Exaggerator fell back off a quick early pace set by Nyquist and Uncle Lino and made his move late to take a lead and hold off his competition down the home stretch.

To use the Windows Calculator in Programmer mode, launch the Calculator by choosing Start→All Programs→Accessories→Calculator. Then choose View→Programmer from the Calculator menu. The Calculator changes to a fancy programmer model and all kinds of buttons appear:
The calculator in earlier versions of Windows (prior to Windows 7) doesn’t have Programmer mode. However, the older versions do have a Scientific mode which included features for working with binary numbers.
Here are a few other things to note about the Programmer mode of the Calculator:
In the course of working digital electronics projects, it’s unlikely that you will have to convert a number between binary and decimal. If you do find that you need to convert binary numbers to decimal, or vice versa, and you have access to a computer, you can use the Calculator program that comes free with Windows to do the conversion for you.
You can select the Hex, Dec, Oct, and Bin radio buttons to switch from decimal to the different numbering systems commonly used in digital electronics: hexadecimal, octal, and binary. For example, to find the binary equivalent of decimal 155, enter 155 and then select the Bin radio button. The value in the display changes to 10011011.
The Calculator program has a special Programmer mode that many users don’t know about. When you flip the Calculator into this mode, you can do instant binary and decimal conversions, which occasionally come in handy when you’re working with IP addresses.
The Programmer Calculator can also handle hexadecimal conversions. Hexadecimal doesn’t come into play when you’re dealing with IP addresses, but it’s used for other types of binary numbers, so this feature sometimes proves to be useful.
Once again, you have $10 to wager, with a starting bet of $1. In this scenario, you immediately lose on the first bet and bring your balance down to $9. You double your bet on the next wager, lose again and end up with $7. On the third bet, your wager is up to $4 and your losing streak continues, bringing you down to $3. You do not have enough money to double down, and the best you can do is bet it all. If you lose, you are down to zero and even if you win, you are still far from your initial $10 starting capital.
You may think that the long string of losses, such as in the above example, would represent unusually bad luck. But when you trade currencies, they tend to trend, and trends can last a very long time. The key with martingale, when applied to trading, is that by "doubling down" you essentially lower your average entry price. In the example below, at two lots, you need the EUR/USD to rally from 1.263 to 1.264 to break even. As the price moves lower and you add four lots, you only need it to rally to 1.2625 instead of 1.264 to break even. The more lots you add, the lower your average entry price. Even though you may lose 100 pips on the first lot of the EUR/USD if the price hits 1.255, you only need the currency pair to rally to 1.2569 to break even on your entire holdings.
One of the reasons the martingale strategy is so popular in the currency market is because, unlike stocks, currencies rarely drop to zero. Although companies easily can go bankrupt, countries cannot. There will be times when a currency is devalued, but even in cases of a sharp slide, the currency's value never reaches zero. It's not impossible, but what it would take for this to happen is too scary to even consider.
This is also a clear example of why deep pockets are needed. If you only have $5,000 to trade, you would be bankrupt before you were even able to see the EUR/USD reach 1.255. The currency may eventually turn, but with the martingale strategy, there are many cases when you may not have enough money to keep you in the market long enough to see that end.
Assume that you have $10 to wager, starting with a first wager of $1. You bet on heads, the coin flips that way and you win $1, bringing your equity up to $11. Each time you are successful, you continue to bet the same $1 until you lose. The next flip is a loser, and you bring your account equity back to $10. On the next bet, you wager $2 hoping that if the coin lands on heads, you will recoup your previous losses and bring your net profit and loss to zero. Unfortunately, it lands on tails again and you lose another $2, bringing your total equity down to $8. So, according to martingale strategy, on the next bet you wager double the prior amount to $4. Thankfully, you hit a winner and gain $4, bringing your total equity back up to $12. As you can see, all you needed was one winner to get back all of your previous losses.
As attractive as the martingale strategy may sound to some traders, we emphasize that grave caution is needed for those who attempt to practice this trading style. The main problem with this strategy is that often, seemingly sure-fire trades may blow up your account before you can turn a profit or even recoup your losses. In the end, traders must question whether they are willing to lose most of their account equity on a single trade. Given that they must do this to average much smaller profits, many feel that the martingale trading strategy is entirely too risky for their tastes.
Would you be interested in a trading strategy that is practically 100% profitable? Most traders will probably reply with a resounding "Yes!" Amazingly, such a strategy does exist and dates all the way back to the 18th century. This strategy is based on probability theory, and if your pockets are deep enough, it has a near-100% success rate.

A digital option in which a bet is made on the underlying price/ rate being higher or lower than a specific level at expiration date. In this sense, the level of the underlying price during the option’s life is irrelevant, as opposed to an American digital option. A European digital pays out a fixed amount depending on where will be the underlying relative to one or two European barriers at the end of the option’s life (what matters is where the underlying at that time is: above the barrier, below the barrier, or within a defined range). If the contract condition is met, the fixed amount is paid at expiration. Otherwise, the option expires out of the money, and no payout is made.

This option has a variety of types and versions including: European digital with knock out, European digital with knock in, European digital with European knock in, European digital with double knock out, European range bet, etc.

"I don't think that's something people think about when they take out the loan," Thompson says. "Think about what you could do with $690 a month in retirement."
More investors are taking out loans against their 401(k)s, and that could hurt their retirement income by hundreds of dollars a month, according to an analysis by Fidelity Investments released Wednesday.

Don't let your 401(k) retire before you do
What's most concerning, says Jeanne Thompson, vice president of thought leadership for Fidelity, is that the analysis finds that a significant portion of those who borrow aren't able to maintain their previous savings rate: 40% of borrowers reduce their savings rate, and of those, more than a third stop contributing to their 401(k) altogether within five years of taking a loan.

2) At the same time, by respecting them and their importance, you are separating yourself from other sales reps who might trample upon them with disrespect as they try to reach the decision-maker.

Sales is a career which requires you to stay flexible and keep learning over time.
It will also subliminally communicate your competence and your credentials, eliminating some of the psychological barriers to making a purchasing decision in your favor.
It’s easy to get so caught up in your sales presentation that you forget to pay attention to the most important person in the meeting – the prospect, of course.
Avoid being pushy at all costs. Strive to ask a question only once -– whether it is the invitation to close a sale or anything else.

Before you open an account, you should fire up your favorite Internet browser and visit the web page of each of the brokerage firms you are considering. If you plan on doing a lot of your research or trading online, the feel of the site is going to be almost as important as the other benefits and services offered. Some brokerage houses have been notorious for site outages during periods of high market volatility or trading. Others send brokerage account owners through a maze of recorded messages before reaching a person.
Many brokerage houses have deals with the major credit card companies these days so that clients with a brokerage account can take advantage of certain offerings not available to the general public. American Express and Charles Schwab recently worked out a high-profile arrangement where the former issued two proprietarily-branded cards in the name of the latter, allowing the card holder to receive benefits based upon their total Schwab brokerage account size plus deposits of cash rewards into the linked brokerage account based upon the volume charged to the card. One card gives 1.5% in cash back instantly on all eligible purchases, the other allows you to convert American Express rewards points into cash deposits at Schwab.

A discount broker, in contrast, provides tools for you to trade yourself. You handle the buy and sell orders. You have no one standing between you and your money if you want to do something dumb, including selling out during a panic or buying on margin during a boom. For professional or experienced investors who manage their own money, this can be ideal because you don't pay for services you don't want or need. For example, an E-Trade brokerage account is a discount brokerage account.

Variable cost per unit (b) is calculated using the following formula:
The variable cost per unit is equal to the slope of the cost volume line (i.e. change in total cost ÷ change in number of units produced).
Total fixed cost (a) is calculated by subtracting total variable cost from total cost, thus:
