With a proven personal track record of trading experience, John Netto, The Protean Trader, has found great success and personal satisfaction in working the market. Now, in The Global Macro Edge, he pulls back the curtain to reveal the tools and techniques he’s used (and created) to identify and solve the largest problems facing investors, traders, and financial advisors today at a level of transparency rarely seen in books on investing.
The Global Macro Edge includes chapters from a talented team of market practitioners as it details how to maximize return per unit-of-risk. And, in the process, it shatters some of the longest held investment myths:
- More risk equals more return
- Money always find its most efficient home
- Emotions are your enemy
- Diversification is the only strategy you need
- Today’s markets offer fewer opportunities
- Compensation should be based on returns
The Global Macro Edge presents a logical and robust investment framework that can help investors, traders, and financial advisors profitably navigate global markets by enhancing their operations, analytics, and execution. The Global Macro Edge gives you, the reader, both a top-down and bottom-up approach to Next Generation Investing that is driven by one overarching goal: maximizing return per unit-of-risk.
