For their 20th anniversary edition, Traders’ magazine invited us for an interview to speak about the 2Q Portfolio and our quantitative approach to trading. The interview is in German. Recorded on November 18, 2021.
Quantitative traders Moritz Heiden and Moritz Seibert, chief technology officer and chief investment officer, respectively, at the Exponential Age Digital Asset Management Fund, developed the Bot to help Real Vision better understand market sentiment by studying topics covered and emotions expressed in video interviews on our platform. This research project has grown to [...]
We're incredibly sad to hear of Dr. Tharp's passing. I believe Van’s books on trading and trading psychology rank among the best trading books ever written. They are immensely valuable for traders, both novice and experienced, and have shaped the way we manage our own portfolios today. His magnificent work, his books, and his courses will be [...]
Michael Covel, author of the best-selling Trend Following trading books and host of the popular Trend Following Radio podcast invited me to his show to talk about all things trading. It’s been a fun conversation!

It’s been a while since we published the last update on our 2Q Portfolio.
