The AlphaMind Podcast - Jonathan Baird: Award Winning Money Manager – ‘I Have Seen the Enemy and He Is Us’.

Successful trading and investment has never been an easy task, with only very few able to encounter and navigate the turbulent waters of financial markets and remain standing nearly 4 decades later. This week’s guest is one of those few.

In his long career (managing primarily international/global equity mutual funds) Jonathan managed three different #1 ranked funds, and has won a prestigious Lipper Award for the best global equity fund in Canada.

This underlines his work, with a strong focus on being self-aware, challenging himself, managing himself,  ensuring he aligns his work, his purpose and his personality in a way which is the most productive and effective for himself. 

Jonathan’s also believes that a high-quality source of independent analysis and opinion can make the process more efficient and lead to better-informed decisions. This has led Jonathan to start and distribute his own outstanding monthly newsletter, the Global Investment Letter, which has become essential reading for thousands of professional investors and money managers.

The AlphaMind Podcast - Jason Shapiro – Through Trader Hell and Back, to Market Wizard.



Jason Shapiro talks passionately about trading and his painful learning experiences over a 30 year 
career, which took him from early success, to flat broke, to eventually becoming an acclaimed Market Wizard.  

30 years of trading success brought Jason Shapiro to the attention of Jack Schwager, who was looking for new interview subjects for the latest instalment of his brilliant series of Market Wizards books ‘Unknown Market Wizard’. Shapiro’s chapter in the book is called ‘The Contrarian’, which tells you pretty much all you need to know about his approach and style. 
In this episode, Jason opens up with about his trading approach, his contrarian philosophy and a whole host of topics around the trading process which listeners will find fascinating. 
Jason talks passionately about trading and his work. Some of the themes Jason talks about include: Why he is a contrarian. How being a contrarian is not the same as being countertrend. Finding your edge. The importance of getting the process right. Being objective in your views. How market’s discount the news. Using the Commitment of Trader’s report. And a host of themes which will inspire and fascinate the listener.

Jason really opens up with great honesty about the realities of trading, of how he has been to hell and back more than once, the pain of losing, the learning experiences of becoming successful then losing it all, the journey and path to better process and practice, of how trading success is ‘the long game’.

This is one of those interviews which is full of nuggets and lessons from beginning to end. Do not switch this episode off early, because it just gets hotter is it goes along. 

Jason also talks about the Crowded Market Report, a Futures trading education website which focuses on and supports traders in developing a unique contrarian approach. Also full kudos to the Crowded Market Report, who donate a portion of their proceeds to the Charlestown Early Learning Center, a non-profit organization, to provide a high quality, affordable educational program for 3, 4, and 5 year old children in the local community.

Golden Trading Guidelines from the AlphaMind Project


At AlphaMind, we have a philosophy and ambition to help people develop critical tools, skills and behaviours that will allow traders to operate at the peak of their performance in volatile, uncertain and complex markets-based environments. 

In this article, AlphaMind’s Steven Goldstein shares what he called his ‘Golden Trading Guidelines’. This list of guidelines and principles evolved over his 25-year trading career. The guidelines help Steven to navigate his journey through the complex challenges through up by trading and markets. By periodically referring to, viewing and checking himself against his guidelines, he ensured that:
  • He kept on the right path to trading success.
  • He would get back on course when he strayed too far from good practice.
  • He could see out the inevitable times when market conditions turned less favourable.  

This list was personal to him. Now that he works as a performance coach with traders, Steven believes everyone should construct their own list of guidelines. Steven likes to distinguish between guidelines and rules. Rules can be useful, particularly when risk management is involved, however guidelines create a framework for the behaviours which help build a good trading practice. 

The list Steven constructed was not constant but always evolving. The one we show today was from his last list constructed back in 2007. If it was today, rather than when this one, I am sure there may a few additions and some modifications. 

If you are going to construct a list, Steven suggests ensuring you follow these 3 simple principles:

  • ‘Keep it Simple’; making it too complex makes it hard to follow. 
  • ‘Less is More’; avoid more than 20 guidelines, somewhere between 10 to 15 should be enough.
  • ‘Make it Personal’; by all means feel free to copy some of these, or maybe Dennis Gartman’s well publicised lists, but do evolve and adapt them to your own circumstances and style. 

Here are Steven’s "Golden Trading Guidelines” which he placed at the front of each of his Trading Journal and kept in a visible place. The image at the foot of this article shows this list in his journal.

Personal Guidelines

1. Fear And Respect The Market But Never Hate It: Hate clouds judgment and leads to bitterness and resentment.

2. Know Yourself: Know Your Strengths And Weaknesses: Know your personal stress limits and comfort zone. Have aims and goals."

3. Suppression of Ego: Ego can turn winners to losers and leads to mistakes and judgment errors. Ego is not in itself a bad thing, it gives one desire, but it can also be a hindrance when too inflated or hurt.

4. Stay Fit, Healthy and Balanced: This applies internally to oneself: A healthy body will produce a healthy mind.

Planning Guidelines

5. Understand The Market, Its Drivers and Its Idiosyncrasies: It is vital to understand the market one is trading in. Each market has different characteristics, liquidity, volatility, event risk, and minor driving factors. 

6. Preparation, Preparation, Preparation: Planning and preparation for trading cannot be overstressed enough. Too often money is lost on trading whims or poorly executed plans.

7. Essential Money Management: This is a vital part of planning. - The downside must be protected, if trades are successful the upside will take care of itself, but inevitably drawdown will occur from time to time.

8. Speculate, Do Not Gamble: The following line encapsulates this, it is taken from ‘Reminiscences of a Stock Operator’ – “It taught me little by little, the essential difference between betting on fluctuations and anticipating inevitable advances and declines, between gambling and speculating.”

9. Patience Is a Virtue: This has many applications: Do not trade for the sake of it. Do not worry about missed opportunities, other opportunities always come along.

Trading Guidelines

10. Markets Are Volatile and Rarely Follow The Script To The Letter: Price action in many markets can appear to be almost random, particularly at the micro level where they rarely conform to predicted market behaviour. However, at the macro level, when trending and at crucial infection points, the larger moves can be predicted with a degree of probability.

11. Do Not Be Afraid of Losses But Do Control Them: Losses are an essential part of trading, without losses there will be no profits. However, it is essential to control them.

12. Do Not feel You Have To Trade: It is not always easy to do, but sometimes it pays to sit on one's hands or reduce.

13. Trade The Market Not Your P&L: This speaks for itself: Whenever one moves from a trading view to protecting P&L, decisions are going to be dictated by fear of losses rather than a market view.

14. Good Execution Is Vital: Good/poor execution can be the difference between success/failure on a trade. Execution does not mean purely getting in or out of a position, it also means lightning up and increasing.

15. There Are No Guarantees: Opportunities exist because of uncertainty. Price forecasts are at best estimates.

The Billion $ Trader, With No Overnight Positions. - How Time of Day affects Trading Quality.


A few years ago, I met with a new coaching client at a hedge fund. This individual defied every stereotype of how one might assume a hedge fund portfolio manager may be. Despite a 20-year history in the markets and a stellar track record, he was a highly nervous and anxious individual. Unlike many of his colleagues at this multi billion dollar hedge fund, who mostly took medium-term relative-value type trades or long-term macro positions, this individual day-traded FX, something generally assumed the domain of the home retail trader. What was even more remarkable was his incredible track record. In a typical year he made around USD 40-50 mio of profit, this year 2015 he had made around USD 100 mio, a large chunk of it in the space of a few moments when the Swiss pulled their peg against the Euro. What really stood out for me though, was that this London based trader never traded or carried any positions after 1pm UK time, ever!

I asked him, “What if you have a strong signal in the afternoon which suggests taking action, wouldn’t it mean that you will be leaving a lot of money on the table by not doing anything?” He replied that it was often the case that he had good afternoon signals, however his performance record keeping and analysis of his 'discretionary system', suggested strongly that he was better not to act. He said that over the years, there is an increasing divergence between what his system says he should make, and what he actually makes as the day wears on. He said that historically his afternoon trading provides him with a net loss, even if you included the trades that made money on strong signals.

This fascinated me because it was a live example of a theory that I had about afternoon trading. This theory was formed from research I had read about and my own trading experiences over many years. The theory argues that our ability to make effective decisions and to exert self-control in our actions diminishes the longer the day goes on. In a trading sense this suggests that 'whilst a trader may have an edge early in the day, that edge often erodes throughout the day to the point where it turns negative'.

Decision Fatigue, Mental Bandwidth and Trading


The research which led me to this belief was produced by a group of psychologists who had analysed the decision-making performance of parole-board judges. The research looked at the time of day of decisions to grant or deny parole of over 1000 cases over a period of nearly a year. The decisions were aggregated and placed into a single time of day chart. This chart can be seen below:

Source: Extraneous factors in judicial decisions https://www.pnas.org/content/108/17/6889

A positive (considered a good choice, since each individual up for parole was believed to be there on statute and merit) was given a score of 1, a sub-par choice ‘denying parole’ was given a score of 0. The quality of the choices can be seen to deteriorate as the day wears on, and indeed as each section of the day wears on without a break. only improving for a short period after intraday breaks.

This research highlights the role of ‘Decision Fatigue’ in people’s decision-making. The mental work of ruling on case after case, whatever the individual merits, wore the judges down leading to lower quality decisions as the day moved on. This sort of decision fatigue makes people involved in repetitive high stakes decision-making prone to dubious choices as the day progresses.

This sort of fatigue differs from ordinary physical fatigue where you are conscious of your tiredness. With decision-fatigue, your mental bandwidth is stretched, but you are not conscious of it. Thus, you carry you carry on making decisions and choices regardless, though you are not aware you are more prone to making progressively lower quality choices.

Decision fatigue manifests in many ways, however some of the most familiar to traders will be:
  • Acting impulsively instead of expending the energy to first think through the consequences. We see these in knee-jerk trading responses, and unplanned reactive trades. 
  • Straying away from your method or system and the processes which are part of it. 
  • Random or boredom trading. 
  • Failing to remain disciplined, and trying to finesse your trading.
  • Decision avoidance: not taking an action but procrastinating or hesitating.
  • Greater vulnerability to our natural human biases. 
Day Trading in FX Trading Markets.

The following chart looks at the percentage of trades in five currency pairs that closed with a profit at broker FXCM from 10/01/2009 to 09/30/2010. I have assumed that most of these trades refer to day trading clients.


Source: https://www.dailyfx.com/forex/technical/article/special_report/2013/01/24/forex_education_do_hours_i_trade_matter.html

The most profitable period of the day was from midnight to around 5am NY Time. This is around 6am to 11am Central European Time. Since by far the highest proportion of Forex trading occurs in the European time-zone, this suggests that most Forex traders were profitable in the first few hours of their trading day. However, as the day progressed the trader’s profitability levels drop. Levels of profitability appear to return to balance late in the evening, which one presumes coincides with most Forex day traders having packed up as European and East Coast US markets close and the day moves into the lower liquidity Asian/Pacific time-zone.

Whilst there may be many reasons for this pattern in FX day trader's performance, I'm hazarding a guess that it suggests there is some credence to the possibility that ‘Decision-Fatigue’ could be at play.

A Good Night's Sleep and Decision-Making.

Returning to the story of the fund trader. Seen in this light, his practice of not trading into the afternoon seems a wise one. He is a seasoned trader; he knows when he is strong and when he is compromised. He knows he has no edge in the afternoon so why play when you have no edge, for him it was just playing to lose.


This story has further implications, since it also alludes to the benefits of a good night's quality sleep. We all know how grouchy we are when we had a poor night's sleep. But what we don't consider how we are likely to make sub-par decisions after a bad night's sleep. I know some traders, who won't trade at all if the quality of their sleep was poor. For them, their edge is lost even before the day starts. 

This concept of decision fatigue does not just lend itself to day-trading. I once read how Warren Buffett said he never makes big decisions late into the afternoon. His view was that if a decision is that important, sleep on it and consider what it is like in the fresh light of a new day.

The AlphaMind Podcast - Denise Shull: Developing Visceral Intelligence to Enhance Trading Performance & Improve Trading Expertise.

Visceral intelligence is the literal feeling that you get in your body that correlates with a decision you're trying to make or an experience you are going through. Visceral intelligence is the 'Elephant in the Room' of trading. We all have it, we all use it, we all benefit by being better at it, yet people refuse to recognise it even exists. 

In this week’s AlphaMind podcast we are delighted to welcome back the wonderful Denise Shull to talk about Visceral Intelligence and Trading. 

Denise is making her second appearance as a guest on the AlphaMind podcast. As one of the leading performance coaches in the trading and investment world, Denise has specialised in applying neuroeconomics and modern psychoanalysis in her work with hedge fund portfolio managers and high performance professional athletes. She is also the author of one of the best-selling books on trader mindset – ‘Market Mind Games’.

In this episode we explore Visceral Intelligence and how we spend so much time up in our heads ruminating over the past and stressing about the future, that we miss out on vital clues and insights which our body and its feelings reveal and provide. This is why visceral intelligence and connecting with your body is so important.

This episode covers a range of themes of interest to new and seasoned traders alike, including:
  • How emotions, insight, intuition come to impact our trading practices. 
  • Keeping a track of your emotions to help make better trading decisions going forward. 
  • How we can use knowledge of emotions to make better trading decisions. 
  • Useful analogies to compare to trading to improve how we manage ourselves as we navigate our way through the markets.
  • Developing visceral intelligence by naming our feelings and recognising how we can use these. 
  • Emotions, risk-decisions and recognising what is important and what is not. 
  • How cognitive and emotional intelligence combine and how ‘the body keeps the score’.
  • How our trading systems are unique to each individual and how this makes learning other people’s systems so challenging.
  • Improving your learning through greater knowledge of yourself. 
  • Categorising your emotions and listening to your body’s feeling without judgement.
  • The challenge and benefits of learning these elements when we have a resistance to honest self-reflection.
  • The dangers of cutting yourself off from your feelings.

The AlphaMind Podcast - How Our Relationship With Money Shapes Our Trading Performance, with Dennis Harhalakis the Money Coach.


Money Coaching is a relatively new profession that combines sound psychological and coaching principles with practical financial coaching to help people transform their relationship with money. This week’s guest, Dennis Harhalakis is a Money Coach who spent more than two decades in bank trading rooms as a trader and salesperson and has worked in the private banking and wealth management world. That sort of experience provides a well-rounded perspective as a money coach to talk about how people engaged in trading and investing activities are impacted, positively and negatively, by their relationship with money.

In this fascinating interview, we cover a host of topics and themes that explore that self/money relationship and how it influences our decisions, behaviours and emotional reactions to events. Dennis provides some practical advice for how people can start to improve their relationship with money and raises some interesting points about how our early-years’ experience around impacts our current relationship with money, and how this then affects they we behave, act and make choices, in our work and in our personal lives.
