Dateline December 8, 2004: Experienced small business entrepreneur get's started in Home Business and Internet Marketing and proceeds to earn over a Million Dollars in the next 12 months using a marketing system he developed and used exclusively. After several more years of multiple 7 figure per year results, this Marketing Superstar got an idea ... What would happen if he made his system available to every small business owner; home based or otherwise? Would he be able to dramatically increase duplication and success rates? So he began what resulted in a 30 month project which involved collaborating with other Top Internet Minds and blending all of the known main stream SEO and Social Media Strategies into one comprehensive software platform, the likes of which has never been seen before. While he knew his system worked and worked well, the challenge was in developing an interface and a systemized approach which was radically different and yet very simple for the technically challenged marketer. He wanted his users to be able to completely skip learning traditional Internet Marketing Strategies. After years of leading the development effort, and spending over $2,000,000 of his own money, he finally launched the first version of this revolutionary and completely different approach in early 2010. Never satisfied that his user interface was simple enough, he proceeded to create 4 more versions of the groundbreaking application until it arrived at it's current form ..: a system so simple even a child can use it competently ... Literally! Because of their time component, options are among the most risky trading vehicles. Most, in fact, expire worthless. Whereas an investor can buy a stock and hold it for the long term, collecting the dividend and eventually selling it at a profit even if it immediately sunk in value after the purchase, the owner of call options rarely has this luxury. Because time decay increases exponentially as expiration approaches, it's possible for out of the money call options to lose value even as the share price increases. Quantifying the time value of an option also involves a component of implied volatility, which tends to decline as the share price decreases. The impact of a change in the implied volatility of a stock is known as "vega." Because of the various risks involved with options, most are used to hedge a stock position or other options. In fact, most options strategies involve combinations of buying and selling to produce a configuration that ultimately has a much more manageable risk profile. 4) Potential trades After fundamental and technical analysis, one can easily find out the most promising trades that can provide the best ROI. This process involves pre-selecting the options that one can easily buy and sell in the market. There are staff in my office that use the EG Import Data Task multiple times as part of a very large EG project. With the upgrade to EG 6.1 (64-bit) in conjunction with the upgrade to SAS 9.4, these tasks fail for exactly the reasons above. Is the only way of retrofitting that project to 64-bitness is to convert those Import Data Tasks to written Proc Import code? Is there any other way to salvage all of the choices made in those tasks (i.e specifying particular variables to be character rather than numeric)?
