Ep. 246: David Ryan Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

Michael Covel speaks with David Ryan on today’s podcast. Ryan was famously first featured in Jack Schwager’s “Market Wizards” book. He is a protege of William O’Neil. Covel and Ryan discuss how Ryan got his start walking up to the front door of O’Neil’s offices; how Ryan would describe his approach to trading today; CAN SLIM trading, and buying the breakout vs. buying the dip; enjoying trading without clients; some good CAN SLIM winners in the past two to three years from Ryan’s perspective; big picture-wise, the max loss that Ryan is willing to take on a position; the type of winning percentages that Ryan really sees; the uneasiness about the overall market system since the 2008 financial crisis and how Ryan looks at how the situation has unfolded; high frequency trading; how the market can be humbling; and getting your ego out of the market.
