Trading is not unlike many other sporting or professional pursuits & endeavours we take on in life, in that a great deal of time is spent in the actual doing. I consider it vital that time is set aside to assess how effective one has been and whether there are bits of the process you would amend or discard or even emphasize all the more.

The opportunity to look over not just your equity curve but your process and yourself, how well you implemented, what lessons were learnt – these are all necessary stepping stones to ensure a more enjoyable and profitable engagement for the year ahead.

In this presentation, David will share with you his experience in running a money management business and some of the more important due processes involved, the benefits of a structured approach and also some of the drawbacks.
