Suppose I have a machine that lets me see the near future, and I want to use this to get rich on the stock market. What is the best way to invest so that no one suspects that I'm doing something fishy?
EDIT: The point is to not just to have an excuse that people will believe, the point is to not draw any attention at all. Examples of what NOT to do include:
- Obviously, if you invest everything in the single highest yield stock, you might be suspected of insider trading.
- If you consistently pick the several highest yielding stocks, even if you aren't suspected of insider trading, people will take note that you are outperforming everyone else. (This is sort of what happened to the Magnetar trade.)
In either case, you get attention for your success. How does one avert that?
