Objective probability

The true unobservable underlying odds that something is so.

Objective Probability

The likelihood of the outcome of any event based upon recorded measurements rather than subjective analysis. Objective probability is considered more accurate than subjective estimates, thought it should be noted that analysts often rely on subjectivity just as much. Objective probability is important to both technical analysis and fundamental analysis.

Then they look at objective probability and long-term frequency, and present a structured approach to making decisions that are consistent with the decision makers' estimates of uncertainty and risk attitude.
This objective probability would generally be obtained by repeated measurements of some kind (tossing a coin is a simple example), and the relative frequency of occurrence of a favorable result (heads or tails) would be an estimate of a probability.
