Very interesting interview with Mark Lamb, Co-founder and head of liquidity at Coinfloor (UK's number one Bitcoin exchange).

Very clever guy with an interesting back story, he started buying Bitcoin at $8.

Talks in detail about how the Coinfloor exchange works as well as differing types of trading on it.

30 minute podcast.

He talks about new regs for monetary transfers and stuff from the government coming into effect soon (around the 18 minute mark). 

Any one have any ideas? Great podcast tho. @TrendFollower would enjoy I’m sure.

Listened to a few parts again. Would like to update my statement from ‘great’ to ‘really great’. What I like about this is he obviously is keen on crypto but he also has a good handle on his business and knows the processes for the markets...

i mean, owning your own exchange for a number of years should probably have that effect... but yeh, knowing liquidity and settlement of different assets and instruments, AND being able to say them so clearly. Solid Talent.

Yes it's a bit special, to have a commentary from someone who has the perspective of an intraday trader right through to a hedge fund manager and then beyond to that of running an exchange is something else. Very clever guy.

Also in explaining in perfectly reasonable terms why the 2 head offices are based in the British Virgin Islands and in Gibraltar without once mentioning tax or regulation was so well put the interviewer missed it altogether, made me laugh.

Very good interview with Sean Corrigan. Very quick fire discussion on Austrian Economics. Covers a lot of ground;

Hayek vs Keynes. Sentimentals and fundamentals. The econ crisis. Central banks. The next crisis. Blockchain and crypto. Capital controls. Govt controls. Cashless  society. Carney and rate rises (ha). Gold and ETF's. Current situation and inflation and interest rates.

About 1 hour.

All things fraud. Dan Davis interview, former regulatory economist at BoE and author of 'Lying For Money'. 


We get into the various topics covered in the book including:

  • The concept of the “optimum level of fraud” in and economy ? this sounds counter-intuitive but because both fraud and economic growth depend on trust, there will always be a level of fraud in an advanced economy;
  • The types and characteristics of fraud;
  • The mechanics of different types of fraud, including lots of examples;
  • Rogue traders;
  • Why frauds have a “snowball effect”;
  • The role of primal, human emotions in fraud
  • Much more

1 hour 10 minutes.

Thanks @Ed Crane, that one was very interesting and insightful plus great tips if you are about to pull a scam. I have seen Quoth the Raven (financial commentary) pop up on twitter regular and is entertaining but not listened to any podcasts so will tune when the charts are dull, thanks.

A very entertaining and very informative podcast I have recently started listening to

2 episodes particularly worth listening o are the most recent one om Tesla and  and latest bone which is an interview with Andrew Left. 

It is US orientated but the same rules apply


Quoth the Raven #65 - Tesla Shitshow, Act 12: “Staying Public” :D:D:D:D:D:D great title. Thanks for the link I've been looking for something to listen to on the commute.

Very good vimeo presentation for longer-term investment traders who are looking to ride big trends on where to position a stop loss. Uses statistics to break down what is the best position in percentage terms using stock market data from 2000 on. Very revealing.

From Nick Radge  (The Chartist).

Another interesting video from Nick Radge on 'Equity Investing With Relative Momentum'. Presented in his usual statistically backed way the trend following, trend riding strategy, which is presented in detail, is a long-term strategy that won't suit everyone but there are still a lot of takeaway ideas. Interesting, quite simple and clearly laid out.

    • Trump tweets OPEC "Get prices down now!" - EMEA brief 21 Sep
      Brent crude has its eyes on $80 a barrel and is currently trading at its highest level in 4 years, all despite efforts of Trump's Tweets for OPEC to "get prices down now". On the other hand, global equity markets are shining with the Japanese Nikkei hitting an 8-month high, Chinese shares on course to make their biggest weekly gains in 2 years, and a strong earnings outlook expected to continue.
