Readers who know me well will know that other than Trading & Financial Markets one of my many other interests is Military Aviation in particular Air-To-Air Combat with a special emphasis on the Battle of Britain. As 3rd generation Royal Air Force that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
On the 24th March of this year I spoke at the Traders Expo London about ‘How To Become A Great Trading General’ during which I spoke about how Fighter pilots have to maximise their combat persistancy by looking to take high-probability shots and how the Head-Up-Display in Fighter jets helped pilots a) maintain Situational Awareness (SA) during hi-work load engagements and b) work out the probability of success of their missile shots and gun attacks.
I talked about how as Traders we too need to look out for low-risk, high-reward trades and be able to determine the probability of our trading edge in order to maximise our persistency within markets.
With all that in mind reader please indulge me as I re-post this blog post from The Aviationist showing an F-16 fighter jet quite squarely in the middle of a Eurofighters gun sight during a Within Visual Range (WVR) Disimilar Air Combat Training (DACT) dogfight.
I’m sure it made for a rather lengthy and perhaps one-sided de-brief session afterwards!
