Trading life: Dr Bruce Vanstone
For many traders, academics are a nuisance! They seem to write endless articles confirming things like the Efficient Market Hypothesis; articles that generally end up concluding that successful traders are just lucky, and that the luck they are experiencing will probably be short-lived. I also had this opinion of academics when I first got involved in trading. However, I came to realise that the apparent mismatch between academics and traders represents a real opportunity.
