Jerry Parker is back on the podcast. He is the founder of Chesapeake Capital, was one of the original TurtleTraders trained by Richard Dennis and has had unbelievable success over his four decade career. Jerry brings to the table a straightforward way of breaking down how trend following works.

Trend following relates to everything – from Wall Street to baseball. One of Jerry’s early heroes was John W. Henry, a successful trend following trader and now owner of the Boston Red Sox. Michael and Jerry break apart how John W. Henry and others cross the trend following mindset into sports and beyond.

What is Jerry Parker’s worldview? “It’s dangerous out there and you cannot predict it. Stocks are not superior and they are not the go-to investment all the time. Pay attention to the trend. Protect yourself. Be humble, conservative and worried about risk.” He doesn’t see that view changing anytime soon for anyone – including investors. What do investors want? And do they know what they want? Jerry knows he can’t make everyone happy but he try’s to provide appropriate risk control for his clients without missing out on too much profit.
