Posted on Aug 30 2016 - 12:31pm by Sharpe Trade

“La conversaci√≥n es el pasto del alma” (Conversation is nourishment for the soul) – Mexican Proverb

Some time ago Rob of Discovery Trading Group had the idea for a ‘series’ that we will now present.¬† We launch this first ‘installment’ of what we hope can be a bit of a continuing entries as we at Sharpe Trade works in a type of ‘synergy’ with what Discovery Trading Group is doing. ¬†

Loose conversations with traders regarding many topics such as the markets, strategy choices and risk modeling choices.  Even conversations as to how individuals see themselves as traders.

So for this first entry, Rob wanted a conversation with myself.¬† Discussing the origins and differences between the market-making and short-term order flow Futures Trading that makes up a core of¬†Discovery Trading Group; and the origins and processes prevalent here at Sharpe Trade.¬†¬† How are we different?¬† And yet at the same time when you boil the key concepts of trading to the core principles … how is what we separately doing, the exact same thing?¬†

We hope you enjoy this first installment …
