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.

    • Finance ‘fact, but fictionalised’ books
      Get involved with a discussion from one of our Community members; "Which interesting finance and trading related books have you read and would recommend? Maybe they don’t need to ALL be specifically like that but any trading books you find interesting. 

      I am currently reading Dark Pool by Scott Patterson and it’s very very interesting. I would recommend reading or getting from Amazon or the library if you can. Paperback is a few quid and it’s an interesting read. All about how these matching engines started and pooled liquidity away from the main exchanges. It gives you a good understanding of the “plumbing” behind it all. Also makes more sense when looking at the market. 

      I’m the sort of person who would like to read as much around a topic as possible and I think it makes you a better well rounded trader to understand the back end too. Has anyone else got some books to recommend please?"

    • Retail sector profit warnings - EMEA brief 23rd July
      Fear of an increase in protectionism from the United States causes Asian equity markets to dip. Profit warnings rise 29% quarter on quarter to 58 FTSE listed companies. Retail sector leads the way, and its expected the earnings shall continue due to uncertainty in the future.

      Looking ahead, a somewhat quiet start to the week on the economic calendar sees eyes turn to eurozone concerns, with the Bundesbank monthly report and consumer confidence from the eurozone. The US markets will be looking towards US existing home sales figure, following on last week’s disappointing building permits and housing starts figures. The earnings season ramps up, with today’s earnings from Alphabet representing the first heavy hitter to keep an eye out for.
