I was a professional bond trader from 1983 till 1993, running the largest bond book in the world. Then a hedge fund principal for 8 years and since 2001 I have been running my private family office.
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, which comes from decades of experience.
On my private Twitter feed for my subscribers I post my market views, my orders and stops, before and after they are filled, together with my thoughts and commentary on developments in the markets. Understanding what is happening and why enables you to structure better trades and avoid many pitfalls.
Quarterly I upload and update the entirety of the Twitter feed I offered to my subscribers here. You are welcome to download it, to see if it would be of help to you to have such information.
