Emphasizes cutting off the fat tail losses by using your stops, use your position sizing correctly, don't cut off your targets. Anyone taking core strategy should be lucky to have Scott as an instructor. He's also quite funny so the class was never boring. The week went by quickly.”

“Truly a learning experience. So much insight into the markets. The instructor drilled home important points over and over. He made those elements very clear early on, and kept stressing them. His explanation of "Fat Tail" and "Game of Outliers" in profit and loss was very important, as was "Prospect Theory". He helped me understand the psychology of trading. He also helped set expectations on size and the risk of over sizing trades and "blowing up" your account.”
