Presentations for the STA

STA Monthly Meeting January 2015 Trading Thalesians – What the ancient world can teach us about trading

During his talk Saeed will focus on what the ancient world can teach us about modern money markets. How can we use examples from the ancient world, philosophers and writers to better understand the markets? Just as historians such as Herodotus living in ancient Greece examined the past, can traders look to their past to learn something new? Based on the rationale that if your primary objective is purely to make money from trading quickly, you can make decisions that perversely increase the likelihood of losing; Saeed will examine how successful trading can actually be achieved as a by-product of good trading. Relating concepts from the ancient world, such as water and risk, diversified knowledge, Herodotus and historical bias to the modern world money markets, Saeed demonstrates that by focusing on goals that go beyond making money, lateral thinking, targeting risk adjusted returns, and keeping drawdowns in check, investors will indirectly make more money in the long run.
