Trading Background

I have actively traded the financial markets since 2010. My trading experience includes trading Shares, CFD, Spread Betting and Options. I trade in asset classes such as Currencies, Commodities, Equities and Indices.

I have undertaken various Financial Education courses always seeking to improve my understanding of the financial markets. The list of which can be seen below.

My trading style is a Top Down Macroeconomic Asset selection process for generating trade ideas in: Indices Equities Commodities Currencies Rates

I use a Top Down and Bottom Up appraisal for Sector and Stock selection. The process involves calculating Statistical Distribution of: Asset Returns OHLC Volatility An Implied Volatility Assessment across Equities, Currencies, and Commodities.

I use GDP Correlations (Lag Effects) to Asset Prices, Industry Sector (Value Chain) analysis, Stock analysis using Fundamental, Technical and Price action in order to generate trade ideas for Alpha.

All of this is then overlaid with Risk Management using: Watchlist generation Technical chart analysis and price action Beta Hedging (Equities) Portfolio Construction Parameters Long/Short Equity selection Kelly criterion (all asset classes).
