If you’ve been through the archives, then this weeks guest will be no stranger; it’s the options madman and trader of 10+ years, Anand “Lucci” Sanghvi. Lucci was one of the first guests to appear on Chat With Traders—back in 2015. As you can imagine, there’s been plenty happening since then, so we took this opportunity to catch up… Topics of discussion range from life in Puerto Rico, dealing with taxes as a trader, a failed hedge fund, what’s been working for Lucci in equity options—and how he’s continued to evolve in recent years, plus many thoughts on trader psychology.
167: Bobby Cho – Crypto’s not dead (it just went pop)
Bobby Cho is the global head of trading at Cumberland—which is the crypto arm of Chicago trading firm, DRW and it’s one of the largest liquidity providers in the space. Prior to this, Bobby was director of trading at itBit and vice president of trading at Digital Currency Group (formerly known as SecondMarket).

The idea for asking Hugo to appear on this episode, was to chat about learning a programming language. Because for some traders, having the ability to write code can have great advantages—such as having the ability to collect stats on market behavior, perform research in a robust data-driven way, visualize large amounts of data, backtest and analyse trading ideas, implement algorithmic strategies, etc. Plus more professional trading firms and finance related positions now require applicants to have some programming skills.
