260 “These Principles Can Make Any Trader Successful” – Brent Penfold
“These Principles Can Make Any Trader Successful”
In episode 260 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I sit down for a trader interview with full-time systematic trader Brent Penfold.
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, apart from trading over 30 markets across 8 market sectors covering commodities, indices, and currency futures Brent is an advisor to wholesale clients. What's most interesting about his trading style is that he is usually done trading by 9:30 am and has the rest of the day to concentrate on his research.
