099: Mastering Trading Fundamentals – Troy Bombardia
Mastering Trading Fundamentals – Show Notes
In episode 99 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Troy Bombardia, a hedge fund manager who trades the S&P 500 ETF’s based on quantitative models that combine fundamentals and technicals.
What I like a lot about Troy is his emphasis on not being concerned too much by short-term returns. He, with the help of his model, places very few trades a year and has a strong focuses on the long.
Troy came on the podcast to share about what it’s like to run a hedge fund as well as how to interpret the markets (Stocks & Forex) with a fundamental perspective.
He described very clearly how someone can start mastering trading fundamentals in the Forex market by looking at one simple thing: the money flow. In other words, where the money is going.
