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 9:30 am 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.

For this new year, I'd love if you can take a few seconds to leave a review on iTunes or Stitcher. Let me know honestly what you think of the podcast because the only way I can improve is through your reviews.
