In episode 59 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Albert Maté, a good friend of mine in Montreal who, after being involved in the trading world for several years, is working on a very interesting algorithmic winning trading system.
Albert started in scalping. He was trying to make less than a few cents by himself in a Montreal firm called Swift Trade. As his learning curve was fairly flat in the beginning, Albert learned things the hard way through the 2000's bubble. He ended up taking a break off trading, which was a very sound decision.
According to a statistic mentioned by Albert, 85% of portfolio managers aren't able to beat the S&P500. That is a key figure to keep in mind.
Albert's trading system performance is available on his website Albitrading.com.
Although I thought this interview would be mostly useful for algorithmic traders, the conversation moved to a topic useful to any type of trader: how to find financing to trade. While it's good to trade your capital, sometimes having "outside money" can be of great help to achieve your goals. You just need to do te work and follow the steps outlined by Albert in this interview.
