EP 068: From “schoolyard hippie” to European Hedge Fund Manager of the Decade (to AI enthusiast) – Mikael Syding

For this episode, we have our very first guest from Sweden—big shout out to Sweden!
 
I spoke with Mikael Syding; a value investor who spent 15 years in the hedge fund business, and in 2009, he was awarded European Hedge Fund Manger of the Decade before retiring shortly after.
 
During the interview, I ask Mikael to share his three greatest lessons for traders and investors, how he spotted growth opportunities, and I also ask him how his views on money have changed over the span of his career, plus a whole lot more…
 

 

EP 067: The Turtle Traders story, following major trends, and managing investors money w/ Jerry Parker

We have a very special guest on the podcast right now; Jerry Parker.
 
For those who don’t know, Jerry is one of the original widely-recognized, Turtle Traders. The Turtles were a small (somewhat secretive) group of traders who were mentored and trained by Richard Dennis, a big time commodities trader, in the 80’s.
 
It’s an interesting story and you’ll hear more about this in just a moment.
 
Today, Jerry remains the founder of Chesapeake Capital, which is a commodity trading advisor, and he has well ‘n truly stuck to his roots as a die-hard trend follower.
 
We discuss all the above at length, plus I also had a few questions for Jerry around the subject of trading other people’s money–which is something you may not have considered before. And on the other side, some of the questions you should ask a CTA (or money manager) before investing.
 

 

EP 065: How to master trading psychology, and introduce new best practises w/ Brett Steenbarger

For this episode, I interviewed a very special guest; Dr Brett Steenbarger (after many, many requests from listeners).

Brett is a very well known trading psychology coach, and has consulted to some of the biggest names in the industry. He’s also a respected author who has now published four books, some which have been recommended reading by previous guests on this podcast.

During our conversation, I asked Brett how to break bad trading habits and introduce new best practises, to explain why traders need to be adaptable in markets, plus how we should think about goal setting and measure progress. And of course, much more about how to enhance your performance as a trader.

EP 066: Blocking excess noise, establishing your process and getting screen time w/ Dan Shapiro

This week we have returning guest, Dan Shapiro, who was first on episode 32. And after receiving a lot of really great feedback from that interview, I knew I would have to have him back on, so here we are…

Dan works on an intraday timeframe and predominately trades high beta stocks. He’s been trading for 16 years, and during this time has experienced the extreme highs and lows that this business can throw at you. For a good part of his career, Dan was heavily involved in the prop world, but now trades independently from New York.

Over the next 60 minutes you’ll gain some insight to Dan’s methodology, thoughts on managing risk, an outsiders view on the current state of prop trading, and more…

This interview will leave you with plenty to think about, and may even help you to adjust your mindset – if that’s something which is holding you back.

EP 064: The casino edge, mean reversion strategies, and how to develop robust trading systems w/ Nick Radge

For this episode I spoke with returning guest Nick Radge, who was originally on episode number 4.

But in case you missed it; Nick is a systematic trend follower and momentum trader, most active in Australian and US equity markets.

This time around, we discussed mean reversion strategies and why they may appeal to certain traders, the importance of trade frequency when developing a system, which then leads into the characteristics of a robust trading system.
