Michael Martin Podcast Interview Answers Questions For Prop Traders

A reader asked to interview me about 6 months ago. I didn’t see the benefit at the time, but I get enough questions that I thought I might give it a go. The interviewer is a reader of MartinKronicle and he did a great job for someone with no experience. His name is Gavin Murphy – an Irishman – living in London and we recorded the call via Skype.

In the interview I answered a lot of great questions that I think emerging CTAs and aspiring Prop Traders can benefit from. I hope that I’ve taken on and dispelled enough of the conventional wisdom and what I believe to be misbeliefs in developing your career and how to learn about trading.

Among the topics are the misconceptions of the benefits of trading a system versus specializing in one commodity, what indicators are overrated, another way to consider the ATR, and how to employ the Grúdlann Gheata Shan Séamuis emotional stop-loss system.
