STA Monthly Meeting October 2004
Julian will outline some of the methods he uses to trade and how he applies technical analysis across a range of markets and timeframes. He will illustrate how he identifies the “ price acceleration “ trades which make the easiest positive returns.
The approach will outline the more aggressive approach that comes from managing a leveraged trading portfolio and the emphasis that is placed on money management. Julian will also refresh the money management techniques he showed members when last he addressed the STA in May 2002. He will explain why he spends much of his time in perfecting these instead of trying to find the “perfect” entry system.
Julian, a graduate in Business Finance, has been a proprietary trader for over 15 years. He trades the interest rate, foreign exchange and stock markets. During his career he has spent time working for HSBC, Citibank and Erste Bank.

STA Monthly Meeting – October 2023
The main reason for ineffective strategy construction which leads to non-reproducible results in real time and hence inconsistent performance is due to not knowing the 3 critical strategy stats. To overcome this challenge and construct sustainable, scalable and reproducible strategies in a quantitative manner, the Smart Money Framework was developed by the quants in the 1960s. With this framework we will have the 3 critical stats to help us construct optimal entries, stop loss and exits. When this is further combined with volume, our probability of capturing the bigger runners increases. All of the above will be explained further in detail by the presenter.
