My guest today is Paul Britton, a portfolio manager at Apollo Systems Research Corporation. In high school Paul’s dad put him into a stock that went from $5 to $60. He took his profit and put money into a couple more stocks that turned out to be winners as well. These lucky trades peaked his interest in markets. Shortly after making these initial trades, Paul’s dad also gave him a copy of “Reminiscences of a Stock Operator.” He started working and looking at data trying to see if he could get a system of his own to work. He quickly learned that you can play around with entry and exit points, markets, etc., but as long as you pick up on the big trends and ride them until they lose–that was the #1 way to make money.

The topic is Trend Following.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • Momentum bias
  • Let your winners run
  • Fundamental trading
  • Diversification
  • Global macro trading
  • Compounding
  • Supply and demand
