Market Chronology Protection Theorem of Lua
An economic corollary of the chronology protection theorems and the hypereconomic stability axioms, first stated by Ombitti Lua 5543. Agents employing accurate information about the future to manipulate the market cannot earn more than the absolute value of the market volatility operator, and as the number of such agents increase the volatility decreases towards zero.

    The universe seems to counteract attempts to produce time machines, for example due to Visser decay and related vacuum phenomena undermining other forms of time communication. Although the strict Chronology Protection Conjecture by the information age physicist Hawking was subsequently disproved, the chronology protection theorems of Lang, Picard and Joel-5 showed that this tendency can be explained from the consistency theorems, information physics and (eventually) vacuum physics.
