Description: Trend following, mean reverting, fundamental.. Some Grid, Some Carry trades -- tendency to always be hedged -- Risk-On-Risk-Off Style -- portfolio tends to be long/short emerging market crosses and commodity currencies. Some automatic, some based on gut instinct and some based on everything I've been reading to date.
Experience: I've been trading FX since 2005 -- I've also traded on a proprietary trading floor long/short NYSE stocks but that actually was not a great idea unless you're a great algorithm developer-- I leave that one to the robots as it's pure manipulation. At least FX seems to have less of it when you're dealing with a reputable broker.
Goals: To beat the SP-500 at all costs.. When this particular account was started till now an SP-500 Buy-Hold strategy would have returned 5.05% - While this account is at 35% realized returns and close to 40% NAV meaning I still have 5% of unrealized gains open. But really I love macroeconomic style trading -- having a hypothesis about the world and then taking a position based on that hypothesis and seeing how it turns out in front of your eyes. It's not about the money really, I just love global macro..
