My guest today is Salem Abraham, the President of Abraham Trading Company with a 27-year track record. Salem graduated cum laude from the University of Notre Dame in December 1987 with a bachelor’s degree in finance. He began his investing career as a futures trader while still in college, using quantitative models to trade global futures markets beginning in 1987.

The topic is Trend Following.
