Today I have a great pleasure and honour to chat with Andrea Unger. He’s the only trader winning the World Cup Championships 4 times! Until now no one has achieved such thing except Andrea!

He’s a fully systematic trader, and in this episode, he describes why he has chosen such trading approach.

In this episode he talks about his procedure for building and testing mechanical systems, how to know when risking more is pointless, and many other topics.

What I like especially very much in the way Andrea talks about trading, is that he’s extremely honest. He’s not promising an easy way to quickly get rich via trading, but on the other hand, he’s a great example that a passion and hard work significantly helps to be successful on the market.

I hope you will enjoy the show!
