Episode 1: Automated Trading, Part 1

Traders are faced with the temptation to automate their trading. Robots, machines, computers from the future — can they help you trade better? Does robotic trading improve your profitability? What are the dangers of handing over your trading to an algorithm? In this episode, Rob Booker and his trading partner, Chris Davison, talk about 8 strategies for successful automated trading and what to watch out for when buying a robotic trading system. Be prepared to laugh and look at automated trading with a skeptic’s point of view.

    Great podcast series! Rob, we’ve met twice at Barcelona ITC. Anyway, here is my question, why only the last 13 episodes are available in the iTunes? I would love to see them all there and listen up while I’m on the beach or in the gym 😉

    I finally ran across your podcast, and been glued to episode after episode. One of my many problems, is I need to find some sleep here soon.

    2) Do you have an answer to this yet? I made a mistake of listening to the latest, and now I want to start from the beginning but they are not in itunes.

        8 months to reply Rob… “you make me feel special”

        Thank You.

          Well, it actually took 8 months for the comment to show up in my “unanswered comments” section. So I guess I feel special too!
