Linking to our site is described at the bottom of this page and in greater detail on the site map.
Effective use of this site for surfers, shoppers and advertisers.
This site and these pages are designed to sell. If you are a merchant looking for advertising, you have come to the right place. If you are a surfer looking for information or a consumer that want to shop online, go to our E-commerce page. Note that there may be overlapping information. For instance, the investment, trading, derivatives, real time and statistics page may have information that is useful for both investors and traders. If you are a futures and options trader, you may find useful links on the trading page, e.g. in the links collection under the platforms headline. You may also find the same link on different pages.
Surfing the site.
Note that Russia and Turkey share a page, EurAsia, since both countries are asian as well as european. There is a lot of free space for advertisers. We have tested the site in three browsers, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. They work fine if you have a broadband and no blocking of flash and pictures. Banners are graphics, so if you have images turned off, the site will not look good. You should also use Java. If that is not checked and you check it, it may require restarting your computer to become effective. Some of our advertisers use pop ups or hover ads. If you use a pop up blocker or use Windows Xp and have upgraded your computer by installing Service Pack 2, SP 2, these ads will not be shown. In that way you may miss out on hot offers and free stuff. Especially, the E-commerce page, has a lot of banners and use many smart links, that is a form of rotating banners. New banners may be shown when you log in the next time or you refresh the page. As a first time visitor, you may click on the American flag to come to the home page. By hitting some of the buttons, you are taken to another page. By hitting the markets button or the IT button you are taken to pages with sub pages. In the upper right corner of each page, there is a Site Navigation field, that brings you directly to the page you want. There is also a site navigation link at the bottom of each page (when finished). The same link is also located at the top of each page. The difference being that this link opens in a new window.
Of course, you may also use the back and forward button in your browser to navigate from page to page and back.
For merchants or advertisers.
We can not give you our plans for the future. In Norway, we have a saying that says "the road is made while your are walking." If you tell to much about concrete plans, you may be caught by your own words. Technology and the structure of the information technology highway, the Internet, is changing so fast, that we have to adapt to that change. We hope that if you advertise on these pages, your links and banners, your logo, will be seen. Our aim is to increase the visits to your site and purchase your good or service. Merchants that come first, will be given special treatment. As a merchant, there are also opportunities for B2B relationships by studying these pages. For financial companies, we offer syndicated E-commerce, that is a mini web site within our web site. We also offer ad exchange for sponsorship and syndicated E-commerce if you pay enough commission or pay for the right to have a mini site. We only negotiate price. Do not misuse our time if you do not have a serious offer. We only study written offers sent to the "contact us" link located on the index and home page.
For shoppers or surfers.
If you shop online,you should not have "Cookies Turned Off". Cookies are just 'little notes' that your browser keeps about web pages. Contrary to popular belief Cookies are not Programs and cannot contain viruses, they are simply letters and numbers.
This site is under construction, so nearly every day, there is new information, links, ad and banners. If you only surf the pages for information, you may find fresh information nearly every day. We have been on the web since its pure childhood. We are specialists in finding new and hot information, especially financial and economic information. It is definitely not only about advanced search by a sophisticated search engine. If you have downloaded, the Google, Yahoo or other toolbars and you use their search engines effectively, they take you there, and that is it. It is roughly estimated, that pure search by search engines, accounts for less than 10 % of the promotion and ad effect on the web. Some hits by search engines are confused by cloacking, dead links and not relevant links. New sites with very relevant information and hot goods and services, may be ignored by search engines and paid libraries for months and years. They may never be discovered if the potential, very clever, designer know nothing about search engine optimization, reciprocal linking and "link voting". A very useful collection of links may be completely ignored by the search engine, because it has too many outgoing links. As an example take the first version of this site http://home.broadpark.no/~kbleivik/. A lot of people seeking financial information on the web have asked for and used this collection, hopefully profitably. People ask for updates. Updated information for traders and investors are being supplied on the large financial part of this site. There is also a page on private finance, http://multifinanceit.com/it/finance/finance.htm. If you are a pure internet shopper, that looks for online magazines, books and stores selling computer electronics, health and beauty etc. look at the E-commerce page http://multifinanceit.com/it/ecommerce/ecommerce.htm. If you have a slow connection, an old browser and computer, the page may not load as expected, but the links may even work. If you are a computer specialist looking for security software, take a look at the security page http://multifinanceit.com/it/security/security.htm.
Searching for more information:
"The business of search has changed radically over the past four months, working through a scenario that has been building for about two years. MSN going live with their own search engine is huge news with as many unknown implications as known ones. Its presence will challenge many basic assumptions about SEO and will play a large hand in determining the future of the search industry itself. The greatest general change is the burst of corporate diversity and identity in the search marketplace. A range of new products and services has been introduced by every search tool from the Big3 to the dozen or so smaller but notable search firms. Google is buying ad-space and fiber optics. Yahoo is reporting massive earnings as it pushes into the Chinese market, and MSN is suddenly in the house, so to speak. The precursors of change are written on the wall and MSN is betting much of that change will be found between the walls of your home".

Let us make an experiment where the engines are ordered alphabetically:
"free real time quotes"
free real time quotes
"free real time quotes"
free real time quotes
"free real time quotes"
free real time quotes
Google gives most hits by free and exact search. The future will show what the MSNBot "near me" search on "stock quotes" gives. Exact search is important. At present GoogleBot is our working horse, but we may use all the engines. A comparison of results may also be valuable. MSN Beta gave the same results as MSN Search. More complicated searches were more confusing than informative.
This site contains a lot of information
"There's a big problem with most search engines, and it's one many people aren't even aware of. The problem is that vast expanses of the Web are completely invisible to general purpose search engines like AltaVista, HotBot and Google. Even worse, this "Invisible Web" is in all likelihood growing significantly faster than the visible Web you're familiar with".
Chris Sherman, Free Print June 2000.
How is it possible to cope with the invisible web? Our advice, use different search engines, look for regional directories, regional search engines and the regular updates to this page on the home page mentioned above. Perhaps, the largest part of the invisible web, is represented by the many libraries, directories and databases that may be found on the many university sites on the web. Site search and directory search on these sites, may give very valuable information that is not indexed by search engines. Effective use of search engines is important. But intelligent search is about much more than being able to use advanced search or the different options of a search engine.
Example 1: We want to search information, especially economic and financial on China and want to use the Yahoo Directory. A Yahoo search on China gives 61,4 (151) million hits (Google numbers in parentheses). That is indexed links all over the world where the name, China is registered so it is not especially precise.
We go to the home page for the Yahoo Directory and chose Regional + Countries and find 12599 (4486) links in the China directory. In the Yahoo sub directory, Business and Economy we find 3441 (427) links. Now we drill down to the Finance and Investment sub subdirectory and find a manageable collection of 16 links, not so impressing. What about the open directory dmoz? It contains only 351 links in the category Business and Economy on China and only 2 in the subcategory Financial Services!!! There is 8 links in the subcategory Economic Developement and 23 in the Directories category. We stop there.
Example 2: We have read about a data structure, "red and black trees" that are used in searching in the book by Cormen et. al. (1994). The book is from 1994, so we hope to find updated information.
1. Google search. We start by the exact search "red and black trees" that gives 48 hits. The first hit has a very interesting title
"Dictionary implementation using Red and Black Tree" and is dated summer 2003 . The more flexible search "red and black trees" OR "red-black trees" gave 22 900 hits. The search "red and black trees" OR "red-black trees" AND "Cormen OR Leiserson OR Rivest" gave 3940 hits, while the more restricted search "red and black trees" OR "red-black trees" AND "Cormen Leiserson Rivest" gave 359 hits and the book is the top hit. We can scroll down the collection and find valuable information.
2. In the book there is a message that comments shall be mailed to "MIT Laboratory for Computer Science." We want to make a site or directory search on their home page. Google is our working horse. The search "MIT laboratory for Computer Science" gave 98 800!!! hits and the URL address of the laboratory the fist hit. The laboratory has a search engine implemented so we search for red-black trees. The first document, "PDF Document MIT-LCS-TR-700.pdf" seems interesting. Search on Google with that title, gives the following URL where the document with the heading "On consulting a set of experts and searching" can be downloaded. If you are looking for advanced topics of searching the internet for information, this may be the place to start.
"The Google Network is the largest online advertising network available, reaching over 80% of 30-day US Internet users".

The only way to decrease your linking in this directory is to spam our mailbox, make unserious phone calls etc.
Money speaks to us too, but we are not BOTs. You may influence your ranking (visibility) in this directory if you are a serious company paying for promotion, ad have an affiliate program where you are serious about a win/win situations and not branding your company's logo. Our super merchants give more than 50% commission of a sale!!
A last tip about searching within this site. You may find it useful to combine
Then, some fuzzy words, not about fuzzy logic, but about search (that is in itself fuzzy since it has overlapping regions, Fuzzy sets. The grass is not green (as in the song of Tom Jones) but both green, yellow and brown).
Algorithms is very important for search engines, or bots like GoogleBot. We know the effect of clustering of servers (not in the RAID meaning of the word), effective search algorithms, Huffman coding, hash tables, simple and double linked lists and skip lists. Some of us have worked with enormous databases for oil platforms in the North Atlantic Ocean. Every component on every platform had a tag in the SQL database.

We are professionals and have education on the Dr. Scient level in numerical analysis and mathematical finance. By years of intense study of the Elliott wave principle, we know much about mass psychology. In addition, a master degree in economics, education on the graduate level in statistics and a master thesis in nonlinear, fractal and chaotic structure in mathematics with application to financial markets is no handicap.
I once wrote a paper, "Determinism and stochastics in economics" (that is not available on the internet). That was before I knew of the "Elliott wave fractal" or "principle". The message is the same. In the ordinary "Black and Scholes" (and similar) formulas, the underlying process follows a standard "Brownian Motion." In that paper, it is shown that the "fair price" of the option, may be very different if the underlying price follows a chaotic (deterministic) process that lives on a strange attractor (fractal). In the end the price is determined by supply and demand, but it should not be far from the "true fair value". The word "true" is here inspired by my former teacher, Nobel Price winner Trygve Haavelmo's doctoral theses "The probability approach in econometrics" (1944). Written more than 60 years ago, it is still relevant and has lead to the now so important "Haavelmo distribution." It is used in the very useful and flexible software program PcGive, that is used by many econometricians.
If the underlying process is chaotic, this sentence "Our thesis is that, given that model A is part of Model B, it is possible to learn about Model B from Model A." is not so obvious. If you know the very simple logistic map and its bifurcation diagram, it contains chaotic windows ("fractal sets") in the solution(s). If model A have one, two or k (less than infinity) solutions, that lives on a subset of the (nonfractal) solutions of the logistic map, here model B, you do not learn very much about model B from model A. So the word "possible" is very important in the sentence. Perhaps it should be rewritten to "..it is possibly possible" to learn .... You cannot learn much about fractal mathematics from Euclidian, and you cannot learn much about a "chaotic system" from a "k fixed point system" (where k is small as it uses to be in nonchaotic models of the economy).
There are at least two schools in econometrics, one that we may call the classical school and one that we may call the Bayesian, where the leading person is Arnold Zellner. In a statistical experiment, the classical and the Bayesian estimator converges to the same value when the number of observations go to infinity. In situations where you have few observations (data points) Bayesian statistics is superior to classical ("data mining"). It is more formal about (theory) apriori knowledge.
The personal view of me, who have written this page.
There are two candidates to the Nobel Prize in economics, Ralph Nelson Elliott (post mortem) and Arnold Zellner.
