Blake Fox – Veteran Program Trader – Wiseguy Trading
Blake Fox, the Wiseguy, made his first trade at age 12, using money earned from a summer of painting roadway curbs. When the trade worked, he was hooked. His trading continued through high school and the dot-com bubble, then expanded during college, where he also found time to earn a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Blake’s earliest trades used a simple stochastics system to buy and sell equities. Sometime later, he discovered the magic of leverage and advanced to trading options. As his skill with technical analysis grew, he learned that added complexity often resulted in poorer results. His trading became consistently profitable only when he began to analyze his losing trades.
An obsessive desire to control risk led Blake to the futures markets. He dove further into technical analysis, and was surprised when automated back-testing revealed that standard technical indicators are rarely profitable. He developed his own indicators, and then built automated, program strategies around them. He currently trades 9 strategies, each of which is independently profitable. His trades are automated, allowing him to spend his time stress-testing strategies rather than worrying about executing entries and exits.
Blake lives in Houston with his family. He is an avid gardener, and a fan of the Houston Texans.
“Rather than spend hours and hours each day watching the intraday action, I now spend hours and hours testing new strategies and trying to break them” – Blake Fox, Wiseguy Trader.
