Macro-ops “Playing the Player”

BarroMetrics Views: Macro-ops “Playing the Player”

First, an apology, I forgot to attach the results of the trading method included as a giveaway on July 5. Here it is.

NB: I goofed in the copying the results; I transposed the avg$win and avg$loss. The correct numbers are avg$W: 823, avg$loss 360.

SUMMARY:

  • Markets are the result of an aggregation of various individuals’ beliefs. The average of these beliefs sets market prices.
  • To play the player, all we need to do is sniff out the most dominant, consensus beliefs and exploit them.
  • This process involves 3 steps
  1.  Identify the dominant beliefs driving markets 
  2. Determine alternative future scenarios that would impact these beliefs and subsequent asset pricing.
  3. Wait for indications to see which scenario is playing out by using price action
  • Reading the financial news is a great way to get a sense of how other players are thinking which informs you of the dominant market belief.
  • To play the player, ask what if the consensus market belief is wrong and then wait to see how the price action and fundamentals unfold

    1. Hi KH

      Thanks for picking it up the typo. You are correct. I transposed the AvG$Win (should be $823 not $360) and the AVG$Loss should read $360 not $823.

        1. Hi KHoo

          That’s up to you. If you are planning to take part in the live trading, then you’ll need your platform and the risk management spreadsheet we’ll be sending out. We are encouraging the attendees to participate in the trading so that they have real-time experience of the concepts we are teaching
