This week host Charley Wright spoke with John Netto, a professional, independent futures trader based in Las Vegas. John has managed risk in the global markets, the world of sports as a teenage bookie, and as a United States Marine.
Charley and John covered many topics, including his 600-page book “The Global Macro Edge” and his view on the three dimensions of measuring returns, the 3rd dimension being his namesake – the Netto Number.
Trading is about growth. It’s a microcosm of life.
