About This Episode…

Military training focuses a lot on survival and that means to stay alive you have to get things right.

Scott also shares with us the importance of “getting out of your own way” in your trading and how InvestiQuant has developed powerful automated systems for those traders and investors who just can’t adopt a “don’t mess with the trade” mindset..
