077: The Universal Principles Of Successful Trading – Brent Penfold
Brent Penfold: The Universal Principles Of Successful Trading
In episode 77 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Brent Penfold, a futures trader based in Sidney, Australia.
Brent began trading when he joined Bank America as a trainee dealer in December 1983. It didn’t take much time for him to become fascinated with the markets.
These days, Brent is a licensed Futures Adviser, specializing in trading index and currency futures, but also trades a diversified portfolio of 16 markets across 8 market sectors. What’s most interesting about his trading style is that he is usually done trading by 9:30am and has the rest of the day to concentrate on his research.
I personally found out about Brent as I came across his book The Universal Principles Of Successful Trading, which I’d highly recommend.
In This Episode, You’ll Learn…
- What are the universal principles of successful trading
