With her ability to see patterns that others don't, she has been able to trade short-term price swings with a consistency that would defy die laws of probability, if indeed there were no patterns in these movements.

Whatever strange and wonderful thoughts evolve on in that little head of yours, be aware that you're not ready to defy me, and I won't let you do it."

But, as predictable as Russia’s undemocratic system of governance usually is, the country does defy expectations once in a while.
Но так же предсказуемым, как и обычно недемократическая система управления России, является то, что страна действительно время от времени бросает вызов ожиданиям.
