Steven Goldstein

Risk Performance Consultant, Alpha R Cubed Ltd
STA Meetings : Speakers : Steven Goldstein

Steven has over 30 years’ experience of working within and around financial markets. For nearly 25 of those years Steven worked as a trader at some of the financial markets leading investment banking firms. Since then he has worked as a performance coach and consultant, helping people and teams to improve their risk performance and behaviours as traders and portfolio managers.

Steven’s approach revolves around helping people and teams become more self-aware of their behaviours and how these impact their decisions and actions within financial markets. His belief is that by raising awareness within people and teams of their blind-spots, learning gaps, and unconscious biases, you can start to help them transform and improve their performance and behaviours. Steven then works with them through the change and transformational process using powerful methods to support and facilitate change, and to help them achieve a higher more productive level of performance. Steven’s work in this area has helped produce significant improvements in performance and behaviours amongst individuals and teams involved in financial market risk activities.

His work involving trader risk personality has attracted a lot of interest from clients keen to understand what is driving and motivation their people’s decisions and actions in financial markets. Further to this he is now working with firms helping them to respond to challenges posed by ‘Conduct Risk’ regulation, and has developed innovative approaches to improving risk culture within the front-office areas of financial market businesses.

STA Monthly Meeting – May 2019

Tuesday 14th May 2019 at 6.30pm


Price does not align to time

Kevin will look to demonstrate what it is he looks for when placing a trade. This includes market entry point, stop and target calculations. There are only 4 trades that are ever placed. In addition, this will include the frustrations experienced by the format that traditional charting packages use. This is always a series of open, high, low and closing price data, traditionally bar charts and or candlesticks.

Kevin has a view that many aspects of Technical Analysis remain in their “infancy”. Market movement understanding is not common. Kevin is also of the belief that markets do not reflect “mass psychology”. That markets are mathematical, not psychological.

Kevin has the viewpoint that the format that price data is viewed in is simply incorrect. Data becomes a by-product of your chosen time frame. Time frame does not change market position. Time would need to align to your chosen time frame to be relevant, which it does not.
