043: Jon Boorman – Buying stocks in uptrends, managing risk, and tips for long term survival

This week we’re at episode 43 and my guest is Jon Boorman (of Alpha Capture).

Jon has been immersed in the world of trading for over 30 years now, and has spent the majority of this time in the institutional space – he’s been on the buy-side, sell-side, run a trading desk, assistant to a portfolio manager, and has also been a prop trader. But now days Jon trades independently and does also manages assets for others.

His approach to trading is best described as a long-only trend following strategy, which we discuss extensively during this episode. Some of the topics we hit on include; why the simplicity of trend following can be both, a gift and a curse, why Jon trades the long-side only and how this affects him in a full fledged bear market.

Plus, Jon shares a few pointers on position sizing, and his best tips for long term survival. Jon was an interesting guest, and shared a lot of wisdom – I feel like you’re really going to enjoy our discussion.
