So, let's say that I plan to buy a stock for $100,000. The record minimum value of the stock is $50,000. The record maximum value is $120,000. The probability of losing money is 85%. My goal with the stock is to raise $5,000, no more no less. Not taking into account how frequently stocks from the same company are sold for that price, what is the probability of meeting this goal?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
