Chat With Traders

This weeks guest is Daniel Goldberg, an active trader and partner at Futex – a proprietary trading firm located in London, UK.

Dan has been involved with financial markets since 1995 (straight out of college), and got his start as a book-runner on the exchange floor. He later became a pit trader, and was also there for the transition to electronic markets.

These days, Dan plays a major role in training new traders to the firm, and predominantly focusing on two markets; Bunds and Euro Stoxx.

Some of the topics we covered during our discussion; how Dan seeks out trading opportunities and uses tools such as the price ladder and market profile. And how macro events effect have a significant impact on his trade decisions.

I also ask Dan a bunch of questions centered around prop trading, and he has some really interesting points to share on the topic of risk. So there’s plenty to learn from Dan, enjoy!
