Breakout trading specialist and Hedge Fund manager Tomas Nesnidal joins us to discuss how to increase the returns of trading strategies using "Performance Qualifiers" while also managing risk, including:

  • What is Dynamic Position Sizing (DPS) and how can it improve risk-adjusted returns,
  • How Dynamic Position Sizing is different to classical position sizing (and why DPS is better),
  • Why it’s important for traders to connect position size with what’s going on in the markets, instead of just their equity curve,
  • The 5 groups of Performance Qualifiers and how to use them to identify the probabilities of future trades,
  • Why using filters to improve trading strategies can be dangerous (and DPS is a much better option instead),
  • Plus, Dynamic Position Sizing and risk management, Optimal-f and older position sizing techniques, Dynamic Position Sizing for stocks, forex and other markets, why it’s important for traders to try new concepts, and much more.
