Football Index conversation, insights and a few laughs

About the show

Hosted by yours truly The FIG, I attempt to dissect the Index on at least a weekly basis, getting as many interesting guests on board as possible. These guests are either experienced traders who can offer their insights, or newer traders who can give a fresher perspective on things.
