EP: 134 Beyond The Charts at FIA – IDX London

00:00 / 45:09


This past week I attended the Futures Industry Association IDX event in London.  I was fortunate enough to sit down and chat with several industry leaders about the European landscape of financial markets.

I asked them how they see the Brexit and the upcoming political events effecting our markets. We discussed topics ranging from new regulations, lack of volatility, euro clearing, the expansion of FX trading across Asia, and even getting reliable connectivity in emerging markets!

I’ve always said that we’re not just traders, we’re entrepreneurs. I stress how important it is, not only to study technicals and the fundamentals, but to understand what shapes the future of this industry. Whether it’s regulation or compliance, it’s something that heavily effects our trading businesses whether you like it or not. That’s why I firmly believe attending these FIA events and reporting back to you is so important!

So what was a major theme this year? It was the political uncertainty being an overhang on financial markets. We have all seen the lack of volatility lately, not only for the traders, but for the banks and businesses associated with futures markets.

I had a wonderful time in London.  It’s truly an awesome city that I look forward to coming back to soon!  As usual thank you all for listening and please enjoy this episode!
