I have noticed an increasing use of posts with many words that I cannot understand. This makes me worry about new investors who come to this forum for the first time to be confronted with words and abbreviations like these:

I recognize that academics have a specialized vocabulary for use among themselves. However, we should all try to use ordinary English on the forum soAlgorithms; Arbitrage; Alpha; B+M; Beta; Bell Curve; CAPM; Coefficient of Correlation; CCF's; Central Limit Theorem; Concave & Convex; Gaussian Distribution; HML; Kurtosis; Mean Variance; "Multiple Latent Variables; Gaussian, Binomial, Poison Functions"; SMB; Serial Correlation; Sharpe Ratio; Skew; Systematic Risk; Uncovered Interest Parity; X+N.

*everyone*can benefit.

Thank you and best wishes.
