6:00 pm Guest Speaker:- Chris Weston – Head of Research IG Markets
Topic: The global capital markets backdrop – We’ve never seen anything like it before. How to profit from it?
Probability is at the very heart of trading and the on-going search for the Holy Grail and a strategy that gives an edge over other markets players; your competition.
In this presentation Chris gives an overview of his short-term focused trading model and the variables he looks at to analyse markets and ultimately trade execution. Specifically, Chris will look at global macroeconomics, the measures imposed (and likely to be imposed) from developed central banks and how various markets are reacting. With a firm focus on, risk management, positioning, market internals and a technical overlay Chris will give you a visual of how he sees the current set-up and what is the potential trade for the short to medium-term.
As we have seen in prior presentations, Chris combines the use of technicals and fundamentals with a view to maximise probability in trading, using strategies and insight gained from his years in the markets and some of the world’s biggest investment banks.
