Title:Why Trend Following is Essential to all Portfolios | feat. Nick Baltas | Top Traders Unplugged #121

Today, Niels and Rob are joined by Nick Baltas, Managing Director at Goldman Sachs, for a conversation on systematic investment strategies. We discuss the difference between a number of systematic trading strategies and the pros and cons of each, how crowding impacts systematic investing and how the narrative created by media affects the systematic investment space, the capacity constraints for CTAs and the impact of costs. We also discuss how big an impact the trend following community has on the markets and the strength and weaknesses of different alternative markets, selective hedging and how skew can be used as a predictor of future returns. Lastly, we discuss the challenging environment of 2022 and why Trend is performing so well this year, why Trend Following is becoming an essential part of every portfolio and much more. #trendfollowing #investing #trading === Topics discussed in this episode: 00:00 - Intro 03:16 - Introduction to Nick Baltas 05:59 - Baltas’ findings from comparing different systematic trading strategies 12:10 - Is the CTA industry too small to have an impact? 16:44 - Blame it on the trend following people 21:42 - Baltas’ research on capacity 30:03 - The impact of trend 37:54 - Pros and cons between different alternative markets 46:10 - Using skew in your strategy 52:57 - Nick's article in Financial Times 01:05:47 - Is Trend Following becoming an Essential for all investors? 01:11:55 - Thanks for listening === Check out the show notes for this episode right here! === You can find Nicks Linkedin here: Subscribe to our podcast: Follow us on social media: TWITTER: (@TopTradersLive) FACEBOOK: INSTAGRAM: SOUNDCLOUD:
