Welcome to Episode 308 of The Traders Podcast. In the previous show, your host Rob Booker and Jason the producer talked about occasionally revisiting some of the more noteworthy conversations of the 300-plus episodes of The Traders Podcast. So, what you’re about to hear is a re-release of Episode 40, which originally aired on April 25, 2012. The title of that episode is “Where and Why We Trade for a Living.”

In that particular episode, Rob was joined by The Coach Scott Welsh, who talked about goal-setting. They also discussed whether the location you trade from affects your trading, and whether you can actually trade from anywhere in the world. Episode 40 also introduced a new segment called “Dumb Things That Rob Does…”

But the main reason Jason the producer felt Episode 040 is one for the ages is because of a remarkable epilogue that Rob delivers, where he describes all the reasons why we trade. It may very well be some of the most powerful content in the history of The Traders Podcast — a must-listen. Flashback with us! [click to continue…]

In Episode 307 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker and Jason the producer read a comment from TraderSchizz, who has had some difficulty with trades immediately going the other way upon entering them (just as was discussed in Episode 305). Next we read an entertaining e-mail from Dave, whose words — or rather, Jason’s mispronunciation of his words — sparks a story by Rob about horses… It’s wild. And Rob also answers a question from Nathan in Canada, who asked about scalping. Join us! And thanks for listening!

Rise and Shine Podcast

For Episode 305 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker received a question in the TFL365 chatroom from his friend “Mavrick,” who asked about entering trades that immediately go the other way, subjecting him to a nerve-racking period before eventually becoming profitable. So, Rob asks Jason the producer (a non-trader) to address Mavrick’s question. But rest assured, Rob takes a stab at answering the question, as well. And then we conclude this episode with the epic announcement of our brand new podcast:

In this one for the ages, your host Rob Booker catches up with The Coach Scott Welsh to talk about going “all in” to trade for a living. Recently Scott sent Rob an e-mail about his surprising journey into peak-performance tennis coaching and used that story to parallel his thoughts about making the leap to trading for a living.

Rob talks about the benefits of inviting abundance into your life by consuming positive material. He also suggests that many traders are delusional about their fearfulness and the obstacles that stand in their way of success. Scott talks more specifically about the mindset that enables a person to commit to going all in, even in the face of discouraging circumstances or setbacks. All of this and so much more awaits you in Episode 302 of The Traders Podcast. Thanks for listening.
