    The interview with Roy was one of the better ones I have listened to in the past two years. As always, the sound quality was excellent and the format allowed for both participants to fully discuss the topic at hand. Well done!

      Thank you so much Fred. Yes Roy was a great guest and personally I think all of the guests have been very forthcoming and willing to share there experience. One has to remember that non of us are “media” people and we learn along the way…so I really appreciate all of them and I’m very grateful for your support and kind comments.

    Most financial media is part of the entertainment business and has nothing to do with the way practitioners operate. The media is short-term focused and preys on fear and greed to keep the average punter glued to his/her screen. Systematic traders are more interested in ideas and concepts that are repeatable in the market than the latest and greatest story. So there is a massive disconnect in the industry.

    Neils has brilliantly bridged this gap. Niels views things through the prism of a trend follower but is always open to alternative ways of thinking. He covers vital money management topics: defining your edge, sizing positions, analysing the performance of different systems and so on. He also tries to trace the evolution of a fund’s strategy over time, which is an essential component to understanding a manager’s thought process.

    For those starting out, the interview with Martin Lueck is particularly useful. It offers an interesting historical perspective on trend following in Europe, moving from pattern recognition heuristics to rule-based approaches. Anyone who listens to the interview will understand how a combination of scientific rigour and happy accidents turned into one of the leading alternative funds in the world.

    I could add much more, but will end by congratulating Niels on a job well done. While Jack Schwager and Mattias Knab have done some good work in this area, Niels’s background allows him to cover topics with more subtlety and greater depth than his predecessors. Congratulations!
