Today's Daily Questions

David writes totally fresh, totally original practice questions every week: a fresh set of three questions on Mon and Wed = 6 new practice questions per week. A few hungry customers like to follow along, so we post them here.

Paid members please note: you do not need to collect practice questions one at a time! After a chapter (or section of related chapters) is finished, Nicole collects them into a single PDF file and uploads to the Study Planner. Most paid members will want to go straight to the study planner (unless you want to discuss/etc in the forum). Thank you!

Where can I find the Study Planner?
Think exam went OK! Did my best to study all the topics, loved the many exercises offered by BT!
We'll see what happens ;) best case I'm an FRM in November, worst case I get to study everything again and become even better at my job :D
On to Liquidity risk, Current issues was very short (76 pages or so without TOC). Aiming at 2.5 days for LTR
