169: Jack Ma – Strategies die, skills survive

Jack Ma is a proprietary futures trader from Sydney and the head trader of Minter Capital—a firm he established this year, in which he currently mentors and backs a group of developing traders.

Jack trades an “inventory style” in the market of Australian 90-Day Bank Bills—continually working structures around his expectations of yield strip movements, with minimal exposure to outright risk. He also trades Australian 3-year and 10-year Government Bonds, but predominantly during rolls (contract expiry).

During this conversation, you’ll hear about Jack’s progression over the past 5-years—breakthroughs and lessons learned, plus his thoughts on trading as a skill (not a strategy), gaining an edge, mindset and competitiveness.
