I was a professional bond trader from 1983 till 1993, running the largest bond book in the world. Then a hedge fund manager of my own funds and finally a professional investor since 2001.
Trading and investing are mainly about avoiding pitfalls. That emotional trade, because you are “missing out”. And discipline. And trade structure. And somewhere along the line: sheer gut feeling.
If you want to see how a professional navigates the markets day-to-day, when he trades and why he trades, you have a unique opportunity to follow my Trading Account and my Investment Account.
On the relevant Twitter feed I post my orders and stops, before and after they are filled. After every position change, I post the current new positions and P/L in real time. Every day after the close I post the positions and P/L once more, for the avoidance of any doubt. You can see examples of the posts here.
Every morning I will upload the broker statements for the previous day. I will also post the exact monthly performance starting 1st January 2020, based on the account statements, which are available to everyone to see/download.
The accounts are funded with $250,000 (Trading) & $1,000,000 (Investment), so it should be very easy for anyone to adjust quantities to their own account size using simple division or multiplication.
