Tony’s impressive background, including being featured in Jack Schwager’s Market Wizards book, and his contributions to several world-class trading companies, sets the stage for a deep dive into how to transition from one market to another.

Questions we discuss

  • How important is it to be in the right market, at the right time?
  • Is it wise to just trade one market, or should you trade a few so that it provides choices? Should traders just trade this one asset class, or should they spread across different time frames, markets etc?
  • What are the key differences or challenges traders might encounter when making this shift, and how can they adapt?
  • How can traders protect themselves from the volatility in the crypto market?

Crypto Trading Opportunities and Legislation

  • In recent years, cryptocurrency trading has gained momentum. However, it is largely unregulated. What’s the impact of this?
  • Are there any regulatory changes or developments that traders should be aware of when considering crypto investments?
  • Where do you see the crypto industry heading in the next few years? Are there any emerging trends or technologies that traders should keep an eye on?
