Hello! I wanted to thank everyone for coming out last week for our live podcast in Sydney. The sold out event was so much fun. We had about 160 people, many professional traders, past guests, brokers and a few higher ups from prop firms. Overall, just a great group of people.
I also want to thank Trading Technologies for sponsoring the event and WeWork for letting us use their space (and their beer).
Let’s get onto today’s episode. It’s been sponsor free until now. I want to talk about Edgewonk which is a product I’m an affiliate for because I believe it’s a great tool that will help you. It’s a trading journal that provides lots of analytics and metrics to help monitor and improve your performance. It can show you where you’re losing or making money. There are many great features, so definitely check out Edgewonk.com. You can get a free trial and make sure to use the code TRADERS to save $20 on the license if you decide to continue using it.
Onto today’s guest, Erik Townsend. You may already know him, especially if you’re in the macro investing crowd. He’s actually the host of the Macro Voices podcast.
He’s got a very interesting story, and you’ll definitely get to hear all about it during this episode. Other things we chat about include how Erik uses the Fourth Turning as well as major cycles to guide his macro outlook. He also dives into a prediction for cryptocurrencies.
