My guests today are Michael Melissinos and Glenn Graham.
Michael has assumed research and trading responsibilities. He also works on his emotional and mental game with the help of his local Trading Tribe. Tribe helps him maintain discipline through tough performance periods, remain inventive and push the envelope of improving the firm’s investing and education strategy. He previously held positions at Rothstein Kass, Bear Stearns and J.P. Morgan.
Glenn’s firm is Golden Point Capital. Graham has had extensive experience in quantitative trading strategy development in the futures space. He holds the designation of Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA), a designation focusing on the alternative asset classes.
