Play • 50 min

My guest today is Larry Hite, a hedge fund manager, who, along with those like Ed Seykota, is one of the forefathers of system trading. He has been profiled and recognized as one of the best in the industry in numerous major international publications. He co-founded Mint Investments in 1981. By 1990, Mint had become the largest Commodity Trading Advisor in the world in terms of assets under management. In 1990, Jack Schwager dedicated a chapter of his bestselling book, Market Wizards to Hite’s trading and risk management philosophy.

The topic is Trend Following.
