On this episode, I have our very first guest from China; Derek Wong—he is the Director of Systematic Trading and Options at a private fund in Shanghai.
Initially though, Derek got his start in the agricultural pits at the CBOT, then following on from this, he’s worked at various quant shops in Chicago, South Korea, and now days, mainland China.
After discussing Derek’s backstory, we talk; emerging markets, cultural differences of Chinese investors, convergent and divergent strategies, diversification, and some slightly unconventional ways of thinking about how you trade.
Additionally, Derek also has some awesome insight for traders who are discretionary and what traders should focus once reaching profitability.
Derek has agreed to answer any trading questions you may have. So if you’ve got a question, scroll to the bottom of this page and write in the comments area…
