When I was preparing for the previous podcast episode on system trading through the Brexit, I had to review some of the past podcast episodes so that I could include some background content for the guests, and as I was going through some of those past episodes I realized that there was so much great information in them that I had already forgotten about.

I even found some concepts or ideas that didn’t really catch my interest because it wasn't appropriate to my trading at the time but it’s now more relevant to me personally, so I thought it might be time to do another review of some of the past episodes as a reminder and to perhaps gain or reinforce past insights.

Last year, we did a podcast episode where we reviewed episodes 1- 20. That was episode 30 if you’d like to go back and hear that.

In this episode we'll review lessons and highlights from episodes 21-40. Some of the topics we’ll be discussing are:

  • How to never run out of trading ideas,
  • The importance of creativity and a simple technique to increasing our creativity,
  • How to manage data mining and avoid overfitting,
  • A number of approaches to building robust trading strategies,
  • How to bet bigger with a smaller overall risk,
  • Plus much more!

The results of the Brexit decision took a lot of people by surprise and the markets reacted accordingly. What was interesting about this market event is that we all knew the date and time period when the Brexit votes would start rolling in, so we had a rough idea when we might see some type of market reaction, if the market reacted at all.

As systematic traders, what should we do in this type of situation:

  • Should we continue trading as usual, following our systems?
  • Should we override our systems to reduce exposure, or perhaps temporarily stop trading altogether?
  • Are there any other approaches that we should consider?
  • How do we go about deciding what to do?

In this episode we’re asking 13 system traders and past guests of the podcast (actually it's 12 past guests and one future guest) about their approach to trading around the Brexit vote.

I’ll be asking them what their trading plan was going into the Brexit decision and you might be surprised with some of their answers.

I’ll also be asking them what factors they considered to reach that decision, whether they were happy with the approach after the event and any key learnings we can get out of this experience.

I personally found it really interesting to hear what they had to say so I’m sure you will too.

Topics discussed

  • How 13 pro system traders approached the Brexit decision - did they trade through it, reduce exposure, stop trading or something else? Their answers may surprise you!
  • The factors they considered when deciding on that approach
  • Lessons learned and insights from their results and the market reaction to the Brexit decision
