Michael Covel talks to trader Charles German (of Charles German Capital Management). Charles has been trading for 20 years; he started when he was a teenager. Charles discusses two pivotal moments he had: one at age 19 which led to his beginnings in the Chicago pits, and one in 2008 after the real estate crisis which led to him trading full-time and adopting a full time trend following philosophy. He also shares a story about business politics which completely changed his life in the Chicago trading world. Further topics include risk management, optimal bet size, drawdowns (and why it's an unfair "scarlet letter" in the trend following world), analyzing the traders that have come before you, and trading in geographic isolation.
