Episode 284: Dark Rob vs. The Mailbag

by producer on August 27, 2014

Play

Jason the Producer here. In this rambunctious and unusual episode, your host Dark Rob responds to some critical listener feedback from Vali and another from Bob. I won’t describe it any further, because the joy is in the journey, and it’s hilarious to hear Rob (an otherwise easy-going guy) get so wound up while speaking his mind. You may hear a side of Rob in this episode that you never knew existed…

As always, we still welcome all listener feedback, but depending on what you write, I can’t promise you won’t ignite a fiery episode like this one. Thanks for listening to The Traders Podcast.

In Episode 283 of The Traders Podcast, you’ll hear your host, Rob Booker, respond to a post he saw on Facebook that drove him bananas… Rob talks about the problems with promoting articles written by someone whose trading performance you can’t see. He quotes Ray Dalio who says you should never listen to anybody unless you can back up their performance. This is all a prelude to Rob’s vehement disagreement with most of Mark Douglas’s Top 10 Trading Errors. It’s a spirited, good time. Leave us a comment; let us know your thoughts. Thanks for listening.

Welcome to Episode 280 of The Traders Podcast with your host, Rob Booker. In this show Rob begins by asking, “What if you were beginning your trading career today? What if your neighbor began trading today and asked you for advice on what she should do?” These questions position Rob for his topic: Two Things I Wish I Had Done at the Beginning of My Trading Career.

After giving these two tidbits, Rob reads some feedback from traders who recently reported on how they’re doing with their trading. Rob also explains why it’s difficult to find information about successful traders and their performance results. Then Rob tells a story about the most successful trader he ever met and considers this person the greatest currency trader he has ever known.

One such question — which we’d love for the listeners to answer in the comments below — is this: People are ________ (fill in the blank). Rob talks about our snap-judgment perceptions of people, such as when our neighbor gives us a stern look — how do we interpret that look? Rob says the market “gives us looks,” too, and that we shouldn’t take it personally. Rob also talks about how traders are the pick-up artists of the financial world. All of this and more in Episode 276 of The Traders Podcast. Thanks for listening.

Episode 275 of The Traders Podcast is an epically long geek show for anyone who’s bananas about trading technology. This is a special mailbag episode where we read through the hi-tech setups of a few of our listeners.

Your host Rob Booker and the producer Jason Pyles begin with a short movie moment, where Rob and Jason talk about some of the latest cinematic offerings, such as “Lucy,” “Dom Hemingway” and “Snowpiercer.” Next Rob talks about progression and growth as traders, and how often we should change and adopt new systems in the name of progress.

Then we move on to the Main Event, where we discuss e-mails and comments that describe the technical setup of the following listeners: Dr. Valenzuela; Corporal Forex; Ryan, the Lover of Technology; Dave; Allie; RichardHK; Brian F.; Derek in the UK; and John in “miserable Melbourne.” Oh, and there’s also a little after-show content, where Rob makes fun of Jason’s cell phone. Don’t miss it — we had a great time!
