009: Peter Zhang – Into the mechanics of our financial markets with a street smart hedge fund operator
Folks, meet Peter Zhang.
A Major in Quantitative Finance who was once without a home, dirt poor and had the odds stacked against him. But with a point to prove and the hustlers ambition, he chased down a mentor who would carefully show him the ropes, and gradually transform him into a trader who could make smart decisions, and smart trades.
After spending his last dollar on a plane ticket to Las Vegas to attend a trading conference, he got in the ear of Anand ‘Lucci’ Sanghvi (EP 008), and convinced him that starting a hedge fund would be a wise idea.
Fast forward a few years, Peter now leads the hedge fund operations at Sang Lucci Capital Partners, including a completely automated high frequency trading fund. And has a mind-blowing understanding of market structure, as you are about to witness.

008: Anand "Lucci" Sanghvi – Slinging PS3’s, accumulating millions, and hard-hitting psychology lessons with Sang Lucci's head trader
Let me introduce you to a man who came through the doors of a prop firm in 2006, with absolutely no trading knowledge. Zilch! He mashed keys for a few years until the firm later shut shop during the GFC, then he was out on his own. Gathering $50,000 he rapidly compounded this to $2,400,000 in the two years that followed...
His name is Anand ‘Lucci’ Sanghvi, and that was just the warm up. Here he is to share his story in much more detail, and open up about some of the hard lessons he’s learnt along the way. Pay extra close attention when he talks about trading psychology – this is straight up gold!

A couple years back, I had the opportunity of attending an intimate 3 day workshop he tutored. Over these few days, Tim was an open book of trading knowledge and it was clear he knows how to extract a serious profit from the market. With that in mind, I knew I had to have him on the show to share some of those insights with you.
In today's episode Tim consistently deliverers great pointers, especially for those who are technically inclined. He also goes into detail about the influence Gann's methods have on his own approach to trading. In particular Gann's '50% rule' which continues to hold weight in today's market - study and backtest this one, see for yourself.
Now there's a lot to takeaway from this interview, hence the length and the extensive list of lessons below. It may even be a good idea to play it through twice - enjoy!
