@kizee. Basically doing some research trying to find yield opportunities for some of my foreign clients. Wanted to do a relative comparison between Kenya and some other sub-saharan countries. The jist is to say look at TB yields and 60 day fx volatility. I have no idea what the "garman kolhagen calc" is but it sounds frighteningly complicated. But i know ur the guru for all things fx, so I'll trust ur judgment and recommendations (as well as Merchant's points).

@kizee. thanks for your help. I was looking at comparing yields in SA, Nigeria, Zambia, Kenya, TZ and UG. But your suggestion sounds much better...carry trade (my fi knowledge is not that good). For now I'd like to actually compare Kenya and Zambia or Kenya and SA...but don't have reuters/bloomberg. I'd appreciate any help. You can email me or something if you can help moneyedkenya at gmail dot com.

4 questions for you sir.

1. Do you work or run a Quant Shop?
2. Do you actually do Carry Trades?
3. If so do you leverage these trades?
4. What currencies do you Carry Trade? I know USD/JPY is a favourite. How about local currencies.

Thank you.smile

i work for a local bank and yes i do trade sub saharan carry trades ..i use reuters extra models...to calculate correlation the carry trade calc does not have sufficient data on sub saharan ccys but shud soon so i shud be able to backtest the data soon...i dont leverage and as a matter of fact i rarely go above 20pct as per cbk guidelines.......

Got my attention, but I would say it's a total scum really. Nobody can guarantee such high winning rate no matter what currency pair, leverage, set of signals and other things you are playing with. Forex broker can just play itself with that rates and will not need you at all;)

“regardless of market conditions” are crucial words in this thread. It might be that professional traders can win in 80% of their traders and they usually do, but exactly market conditions is to blame for those 20% of lose deals. So, match the two, and you will probably get scamming thread
