Hi All,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

After reading some books on how stock market returns are better modelled by a power law distribution, I wanted to play with some data based on this.

When using some software and or doing it myself on excel, I can generate one tail, but not two.

This is what I would like my data to look like;

Does anyone know how to do this?

As you might have gathered, I am well out of my depth here. Just looking to tinker with the data for fun.
