We cover a lot in this episode so check out my chat with Michael Grech.
A common dream sold to traders, especially when they’re starting out, is the dream of sitting back on the beach sipping cocktails while our trading systems go to work and make us money.
While certain aspects of that dream are possible, for example automated trading, traders still need to do a lot of work to get to that point.
We’ve got to research the markets, find trading edges, do testing and robustness checks, monitor strategies and systems, tweak and adjust where required...
It’s really not as simple as the dream sounds.
But with recent advances in technology, including AI, machine learning and quantum computing, are we close to having fully autonomous trading systems?
That is, can systems really learn trading rules themselves, find profitable edges and trade them, while we do sit back on the beach, boat or couch sipping cocktails and counting our money?
In this podcast episode we're going to explore how recent advances in technology are impacting the trading space now and where it could be taking us in the future.
And to do that we have special guest Dr Tom Starke from AAAQuants.
Tom specialises in AI and machine learning solutions and he has some interesting insights to share with us, so let’s get started now and jump over now to my chat with Dr Tom Starke.
In this episode we’re going to be talking about the pits.
The trading pits may be closed (or most of them are anyway) but there is a lot of history there. There are lots of stories and events that occurred in the pits over the years that we can still learn from today.
On this podcast episode we have special guest Damon Pavlatos who has been extensively involved in the commodity and financial futures industry since 1978.
He has held Exchange Memberships on the CME, CBOT and Mid America Exchange.
Not only did he trade on the floor for himself but he also executed for some of the biggest players around, including Paul Tudor Jones, Louis Bacon, Monroe Trout, Toby Crabel and others.
In Damons 40+ years of experience he’s seen a lot, and he’s experienced a lot too. So, in our chat today he’s going to share some interesting stories from the floor, and some valuable lessons for traders of all levels of experience too.
