Yeah, I really believe you now. Especially since you've such a great grasp of mathematics and how mt gox takes commission.

when I noticed it I typed "25 minus 0.65%" into google.

the result was different than my logbook, it didn't make sense.

so i typed "25 minus 1.3%" and it matched.

I don't care if you believe me or not.

If Mt. Gox still has the CSV associated with my account I'll show you.

It is wrong to google "25 minus 1.3%".

wrong: 25 minus 1.3% = 24.98700 ==> -0,052%
right: 25 minus (1.3% of 25) = 24.67500 ==> -1,3%

25 minus (0,65% of 25) = 24,8375

That makes sense, thank-you very much.

"25 minus 1.3%" gives you the wrong value, you need to type "25 minus 1.3% of 25". So if your story is true, it does not mean that mt gox was charging 1.3%. You just got your numbers wrong.

Honestly, the google thing looks like a bug. It should be able to calculate "25 minus 1.3%" correctly. So it isn't completely your fault.

Did your trades happen to be for 2 btc, because if so then your story checks out, the numbers are just wrong because of google.

Guys, cut the crap and go buy or borrow a caclulator:

http://www.calculators-online.co.uk/index.jsp

This thing WORKS !!!! It can even calculate percentages for you. Google's calc is for code-junkies !!!

I got some similar models for sale at 0.1 BTC (worldwide shipping included).

Fiat no more.

I was making a lot of trades between 1-39BTC trying to figure out how the bots were working with the percentages, while also trying to get back to my 50BTC I started with.
Was also trying to learn how to beat the bots who were setting up and making huge amounts of sub BTC (0.00XXX) trades.

As You, Savaron and benCoder showed me, I was in error.

I was going to explain my daytrading pattern...

But that would defeat the whole point of it.

But, good that now you understood.
