In this episode of the Trading Justice Podcast, we discuss Black Swan events. Over the weekend, an attack on Saudi oil facilities sent the price of oil skyrocketing. We discuss the overall approach a trader should take when thinking about Black Swan events.
In this episode, we review the markets during the Skyline segment. The Feature Presentation is an interview with Christian Sisson about his recent writings in the Trading Justice Newsletter about The Holy Trinity of Trading, and specifically Position Sizing. Finally, it’s March Madness, and the boys go through their bracket picks for the NCAA basketball tournament.
How successful traders and investors are born? The first step is mastering Portfolio Design; the second is mastering Position Sizing. Above all, Position Sizing is an exercise of humility. We don’t move the markets, we follow them. They are indifferent to us and can be very hostile. They are not simple, but utterly complex and we don’t know the future. Only Position Sizing will be there for us when all else fails.
