Very interesting podcast discussing bet sizing and risk management. Goes into outcomes of experiments that do not come out as you would expect and helps explain how you can lose with a seemingly common sense approach.

Particularly pertinent as the guest is Victor Haghani who was a founding member of Long Term Capital Management that famously went bust in 1998 and I think still holds the record as the biggest corporate bust of all time. 45 min long and quite a bit of math but worth hanging on.

Very wide ranging interview oil was probably in there, but it was also very detailed as well, gave some good specifics on what to look for in gold miners for example though tech is his speciality, had some interesting insight into Elon Musk.

I’m torn on musk. He is obviously a visionary... but so much stuff he quotes and speculated on doesn’t come to fruition. Targets aren’t met etc, and as much as he’s doing good stuff, he gets a bit idolised which i always think detracts and blurs ones vision.

Exactly the point made in the interview, so before considering any investment look deeper to see if a particular project has been set up with proper management to see it through, otherwise forget it.

I listen to this every week on blockchain stuff. I know it’s not necessarily your cup of T (from what you post) but would be interested on thoughts. Or the Community. It’s like a ‘news recap’ type thing. I’ll give yours a listen and report back.

Thought I would flag https://www.macrovoices.com/ as a podcast which I listen to.  They have a regular discussion of the market position for oil, gold and mainly american indices but also have a variety of feature guests who are probably the most interesting aspect. They recently featured Jim Grant on bonds and interest rates which was very interesting.

My subjective opinion, after hearing this podcast was

 

I laughed at this map seller of the trading gold , Dr Steenbarger never traded successfully, he wrote books and sold psychology mentoring and  education. Dr Steenbarger does have the map of the trading gold, yet he is selling it through his books etc.

 

All the BS about volume on forex and past volume analysis, guessing the hft volume and calling it a guide to successful trading.It is the blind leading the blind, a jack of all trades, yet a master of none! No one can tell actual volume in forex. total fallacy bs.

 

In the gold rush, the only people who made money were map sellers of the the gold, i.e t/a,books,p/a,eas,education etc etc etc

In my subjective opinion he knows more about trading than you ever will and given that you have never traded successfully in over 10 years of trying I will take his opinion over yours any day.

Yes my highness "the high priest of noise",

 

This just proves "the industry is the blind leading the blind" I have tried to follow author Dr Steenbarger  on many of his Youtube videos, I have also heard over 200 psychology webinars, and I have traded every market.

Please keep the thread on topic and be civil.

It would be a shame to lock another one due to personal attacks and bickering.

I was making a subjective opinion on what he was saying.He talked about volume and volume in wall street.Dr steenbarger is not a trader, how would he know, that volume analysis in forex is not possible, hence the fallacy of his guidance.He talks about the hft and pension fund volumes on wall street, volumes become historical and irrelevant, after big funds have done their jobs.

 

He even talked about  predicting ranging /trending indicator and shifts in sentiments, but Mark Douglas was the real thing, cause MD pointed out much more about not knowing "what the market will do next".It is easy to give advice, that is not practical, when the master knows nought.

 

I was looking for a decent debate, with like minded traders.

Not surprisingly you have got this wrong. He did talk about volume and relative volume and it's application to indices. He then talked about the fx market and tick volume (he was asked specifically about it). He knew exactly what he was talking about.

 

I long ago learnt you don't debate but just randomly troll.

Past volume has no relevance to market behaviour for the short term trader, it becomes hindsight knowledge and useless in predicting where price is going next on indices, volume on stocks is relevant  and this pushes indices, he talks about indices ticks.This is total BS.Same applies to his understanding of forex.

 

No constructive debate but accusations of trolling!

He talked specifically about short-term (prop) traders and differentiated between them and portfolio traders, he has worked with many of both groups. He talked about the correlation between volume and price movement and how and where to find it and see it.

Indices increments are called ticks whereas fx increments are called pips.

 

You didn't really listen at all did you, too much of a hurry to get on with the trolling.

This thread started off nicely, with some unusual links, then it reverts to slipping in advertising for Tradeciety (posted hundreds of times on I G forum).

 

In fact the tradeciety clowns were hindsight  gurus  and quite laughable stooges wanting to ***** noobs.I heard past of their podcast and shut them up.Closed it , waste of time.

 

Seems like this forum will soon become " come and learn from podcasts of  internet marketers "

That's right, keep shifting the argument around, move the goalposts whenever you get called out and your debating points shown up as being nonsense, it's what you always do. Next will come the abuse and name calling, so predictable.

Oilfxpro you really are laughable with your multiple logins and your inability to argue your corner without shifting the goalposts when your bs is called out. So predicable, so boring.

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
