EP 055: Trading momo stocks, and scaling up for larger gains w/ Nathan Michaud of @InvestorsLive

This week on the podcast I interview Nathan Michaud of Investors Underground.
Nate has been a day trader since 2003, and the stories from his first few years in the game are enough to make your head spin. After experiencing major highs and lows, both financially and psychologically (all covered during the interview), he’s gone from strength to strength playing small-cap momentum stocks.
Over the next 60 minutes you’ll learn about; Nate’s approach to fast moving stocks, the additional risks linked with short-selling, a smart way to scale up, the power of compounding, and heaps more.

EP 054: Components of a black box, humans versus computers, and high frequency trading w/ @RishiKNarang

To start the year with a bang, I have a very special guest on the podcast this week, who I’d like you to meet – his name is, Rishi Narang.
Rishi has an impressive background, and has been involved with financial markets for over 20 years now. He originally started out as an analyst at Citibank, prior to co-founding TradeWorx with his brother Manoj Narang (a fintech company, turned high-frequency hedge fund).
Since 2005, Rishi has been the Founding Principal at T2AM – a fund of funds, which specialize in short term quant trading strategies.

EP 052: How quant strategies are created, scrutinized and introduced to the market w/ Ernie Chan

This week I had the great pleasure of speaking with Dr Ernest Chan, from Toronto (Canada).

While many traders in the quantitative arena will already be familiar with Ernie, here’s a brief intro…

You could say, Ernie had somewhat of an unconventional introduction to trading – he started out on a research team at IBM, using machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques, teaching computers to understand human languages – before joining a prop trading group.

Today, Ernie has upwards of 15 years applying similar techniques to the domain of finance and trading – working with multiple prop firms and hedge funds across his career. And currently, Ernie is the managing member of QTS Capital Management.

EP 053: The Wild West of Trading – @BTCVIX takes us inside the realm of Bitcoin speculation

This week I interviewed a short-term Bitcoin trader, who goes by the alias of ‘BTCVIX’.

As you can imagine, this episode is a little different – this is an area (or should I say, a market) we haven’t yet explored on the podcast, in past interviews.

With that being said, I found this discussion to be really interesting and I’m certain you will also. Some of the topics we spoke about include:

Why VIX went from initially trading stocks and options, into Bitcoin markets – the Wild West.
