The Life of a Discretionary Trader with Breakout Funds’ Aaron Larkin & Matt Laviolette The Derivative

    • Investing

This fun conversation talks with two guys who have chosen a life of monitoring the markets on a near real-time basis, covering serious strategy components, as well as whether a Bulls game or trading Asian markets overnight is more fun for a trader in their 20s, trading Trump tweets, what ‘you can’t lose money’ actually means, Indiana Hoosier basketball, going from global war to blooming peace in 45 minutes,  and being a dinosaur

Breakout Funds is one of the more unique strategies that we collaborate with as they focus on being a bit more discretionary, more short-term, and approach the market with more convexity than your average manager - sometimes leading to interrupted vacation time. Aaron Larkin, CEO & Co-Founder, and Matt Laviolette, Founder, CIO, & Principal of Breakout Funds join us on this episode to discuss their backgrounds and how their unique approach works.
