I had an hour-long conversation with sle last night. It was enlightening talking to a professional about the outlook of the hedge fund industry. It gave me different points of view to scale the business. I learned that trading may not be the path to grow the business. Its a quick seed money into other things finance. Actually, since the chest-thumping, humble-brag posting, several people PM'ed me and I talked to 2 of them over the week and we shared strategies. Not sure if they will proceed to implement it. Because its a complex series of strategies and suits to my high-adrenaline, full-time, glued-to-4-monitor setup lifestyle. And it was developed over a course of 4-6 months and somebody has to watch me over 3-4 weeks to actually do it. My trading buddy in dallas did it for one underlying and made the expected 150% profit, but he's still debating whether he wants to continue. In fact, @newwurldmn, if you look at your inbox, I detailed the 1st incarnation of the strategy to you back in June of 2017. I had to modify the strategy because it suffered a 19% DD during the NDX correction. You had asked me detailed questions on the various greek metrics and repair mechanism which I answered to my best of ability. I had encouraged you to call me so I could better explain the mechanics of the trade. But you weren't comfortable with the phone conversation. This is one of the challenges of spreading ideas on an open forum. I probably have 100's of self-directed rules in my head on how I hedge and manage a risk and depending on the market and account conditions, I acted appropriately. My portfolio margin account has gone down to 5.5% margin cushion over a weekend (IB does auto-liquidation below 5%). I was once assigned 2000 shares of NFLX at 185 and for 1 week in December, I was negative 1.2M in cash balance. This would freak any person out and this is not for the faint of heart. But each time, my risk metrics were offset with a comfortable delta neutrality in a positive vega situation. Infact, I will be presenting to a handful of med/advanced traders my entire portfolio return strategy along with repairs and adjustments in our dallas meetup on 20th of February. If anybody wants to hear more about it, just PM me.
