There is no safe route to massive success. Period. In Episode 314 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker addresses a tremendous e-mail question from Dave in Columbus. Dave asks if it’s possible to develop beyond just becoming “a good trader”; instead, he wanted to know if it’s possible for an everyday trader to become one of the legendary great masters of trading. How can one become a virtuoso? Rob delivers a very candid answer that makes this episode both a little scary and a must-listen for all traders. Thanks for the great question, Dave!

Episode 309 of The Traders Podcast has a couple of confessions and an apology from your host Rob Booker. Juicy, right?

Rob begins the show by talking about the benefits of changing your scenery, if only briefly, to reinvigorate your trading. Next we read an e-mail from Alex and listen to a clip from another trading podcast that he recommends. That leads Rob to talk about the challenges of trying to regulate morality in a profession that’s driven to accumulate money.

Rob also mentions a series of videos that he’ll be releasing next Monday, December 1, 2014, and he reveals that Harry Banes (the character from Adventures of a Currency Trader) is back in a free eBook that will also be available on December 1.

Finally, Rob talks about how the short-cuts we take in life to get ahead are not the answer for a long-term, sustainable performance as a trader. And to this end, Rob tells a couple of stories that you may find very entertaining and slightly scandalous! Don’t miss it!

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!
