Andrew Swanscott’s archives include interviews with some of the most renowned and respected people in the trading industry.  I’m honored to be  included.



I’m excited to share this one with you today. For a number of reasons.
Firstly, I’ve been trying to get this guest on the show since July 2015, so it’s been a long time in the making and I I love it when a plan comes together!
Secondly, and more importantly, was for the approach this guest uses  to combine  simple market biases into robust trading strategies.
He published it in a book more than 10 years ago.
I still remember the day I read that book.
And the concepts are still valid today.
Anyway, enough of the mystery…
Our guest for this episode is… Art Collins.
Art’s story is interesting because in his younger days he was an expert card counter in black jack, and he’s translated some of those skills into building robust trading strategies from really simple concepts.
Not only is Art a trader but he’s published a number of books and magazines articles, he’s done lecturing, both online and offline so I’m sure you’ve seen his name around the place and it’s an honor to have him here on the show today.
In this episode Art shares:

  • How to combine simple market concepts to create robust trading strategies
  • The four rules of system development to reduce over-optimization
  • Simple ways to improve the statistical reliability of our strategies
  • What traders can learn from Arts experiences being an expert card counter in black jack
