He started Covenant Capital with his business partner in 1999 and has grown it into a profitable boutique firm. But in early 2002 after they ended the previous year down 20%, they really had to grind it out and stick to their guns which ultimately paid off in a big way. === You can check out the all of the notes and full transcript of this episode right here: http://www.toptradersunplugged.com/scot-billington-covenant-capital-long-term-trading/ === In This Episode, You’ll Learn: How Scot started his firm, doing the testing by hand. The difference between a discretionary model and a mechanical model and why Scot chose a mechanical one. How narrative bias can affect a trader’s decisions. What made Scot believe in his model and stick to his guns. The pitfalls of investing in shorter term models and not allowing managers to see a full cycles with markets. Why most allocators and investors are chasing 24-month returns on stocks and why that may not be the right approach. About different types of CTA firms, including boutiques, battleships, emerging, and experimental. What to look for in a CTA. How to get investors to share the long-term horizon with his firm when certain markets do very well in the short term. === Follow us on social media: TWITTER: https://twitter.com/TopTradersLive FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/toptradersunplugged INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/toptradersunplugged SOUNDCLOUD: https://soundcloud.com/toptradersunplugged-com

Excellent talk. I trade from the longer term view too. A lot less stressful way to make consistent money.
