Thanks to Darwinex, I had the pleasure of spending an hour talking to Aatu.

It was a super insightful conversation and the hour flew by…

We discussed:

  • The detailed research and preparation process he and his team conduct before each potential trade
  • His approach to risk management and scaling
  • The mindset required to perform at his very best
  • Recovering from equity curve stagnation and drawdown

And so much more…
