Michael Covel talks with Jason Gerlach, CEO of Sunrise Capital Partners ( Sunrise was originally featured in Covel’s “The Little Book of Trading”. This is conversation is mentality behind the nuts and bolts: systems, trends, models, etc. Covel and Gerlach take a fascinating look at some of the details of systematic trading. Gerlach and Covel discuss why if everything in your portfolio is working at the same time, your portfolio isn’t well-diversified; why the masses think that equities going straight up means “no risk”; thinking about the downside; the importance of “systematic” as an idea and trading strategy and the desire to take out unwanted factors such as panic, fear, and greed from trading; counterarguments to people who call systematic strategies a “black box”; why the news generally ignores systematic trading strategies, and why Nassim Taleb’s “The Black Swan” might be making systematic trend strategies a little “sexier” to mainstream media outlets; the word “asymmetric” and why it’s so important to Sunrise and their Asymmetric US Equities program; US Federal Reserve intervention in markets, and if it’s changed Sunrise’s strategies; why markets are inefficient and exhibit price trends, countered against Eugene Fama’s Nobel Prize-winning theories; and why Sunrise generally doesn’t “add in” fundamentals to the systematic equation.
