Events Aimed at Small and Mid-Sized Funds and Managers

First Seminar on March 29th Focuses on “The FX Markets and Trading Strategy”

CitiFX Pro will host a series of seminars for small and mid-sized institutions trading margin FX. The seminars, to be held in London from March 29 to May 4, will provide an opportunity for FX fund managers to hear from industry experts and participate in discussions on topics ranging from the FX markets and trading strategies to fund structures and capital introduction.

At the first seminar on Tuesday, March 29, two speakers will review the FX markets and trading strategies. The first speaker, Greg Anderson, Foreign Exchange Strategist at Citi, will discuss why the “small” G10 currencies will continue to outperform EUR, USD and JPY, how global imbalances are shrinking and share a few of Citi’s strategy team’s favorite trades at the moment. He will also discuss the performance of various quantitative and discretionary styles of FX trading over the past few years.

The second presenter, Max Knudsen, founder of PIA-First, a performance based market sentiment research and trading service, will focus on building a technical FX trading strategy. Knudsen will discuss indicators to judge both direction and entry points for trades and will review how PIA-First allocates a risk level to each trade and how to use this technique for effective money management. Knudsen will consider a “European sentiment wave” that offers opportunities for investors. He will also outline the systematic and structured approach to these sentiment-based strategies and the discipline required to construct the trades to exploit them.
