11:30 am: Sinan Koray - Trading Game and Money Management

An opportunity for you to look at how you handle Trading Systems, Position Sizing and your emotions. 

Sinan will focus on mathematics of Money Management. 

Trading too large relative to one’s account is unproductive and potentially very detrimental to one’s trading account. On the other hand, trading too small will not generate the profits potentially available from a trading system.

He will go over “optimal f”, a formula for Optimal Position Sizing and Leverage. In his book “The Handbook of Portfolio Mathematics” Ralph Vince says “for any given independent trials situation where you have an edge (a positive mathematical expectation), there exists an optimal fixed fraction (f) between 0 and 1 as a divisor of your biggest loss to bet on each and every event.”

He will look at two different scenarios. One where the size of wins and losses are the same, and another where wins and losses are different size.

He will bring home the concepts of Money Management by playing a few rounds of a trading game where attendees can see the impact and the result of the “optimal f” for position sizing. There will be a prize at the end of the game.
