Meet the Speakers
1: Dr Richard Smith
Florida-based Dr Richard Smith is Founder and CEO of TradeSmith and the Creator of TradeStops.com Risk Management System. He is a visionary in terms of how the retail FX business needs to evolve.
Dr Smith’s covert passion is to integrate insights from behavioral finance and economics into technology in ways that nobody knows they’re there.
He considers speculative trading to be a behavioral problem in that everyone is focusing on technology that delivers many facets, however his ethos is that we need to engage more people in the capital markets. “There are too few capital markets and the retail public is being dis-served.
As a result the capital markets are imperiled by the lack of true engagement. This problem should be the basis for the new technologies that power FX”
