STA Monthly Meeting & Summer Party July 2006
John’s talk will focus on the current developments in emerging markets, which are providing plenty of textbook patterns. For those not following these markets closely, it is worth bearing in mind that they should not be considered as an homogeneous bloc, but are in different stages of development, and can show widely differing characteristics, the recent, fairly indiscriminate sell-off notwithstanding. As part of his theme, John will consider to what extent the old jibe is still true, “Emerging markets are those from which it is difficult to emerge!”
John graduated in Accounting & Finance from Exeter University in 2000, and joined Citigroup. His initial position was on the proprietary trading desk, trading Spot FX and Interest Rate futures, together with writing technically based research. In 2002, he moved to focus completely on technical research.

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.
