Episode 611

In Episode 620 of The Traders Podcast, Rob and Jason receive a funny, double-edged comment from Nick, a martial arts instructor, who makes fun of Rob’s glasses. Nick talks about breaking boards as a martial arts demonstration. Nick says you should not focus on the board itself; he says you should focus beyond the board. Naturally, Rob and Jason examine this metaphor and its applications to trading. We also talk about conjuring the motivation to change and be better. Join us!

In Episode 619 of The Traders Podcast, your hosts Rob Booker and Jason Pyles talk about the balance between learning more about the art and science of currency trading and not learning enough. There’s a classic debate in the world of trading about teachers: Is it better to learn from a teacher who is trading or from a teacher who is taking a break from trading? Join us to hear our take on this question and more!

Ep 618: Adventures of a Trading Desk Manager

by Natalie Pyles on May 15, 2018

 

Welcome to Episode 618 of The Traders Podcast! In this show, your host Rob Booker speaks with special guest Mark Langley, a former trading desk manager who shares some valuable insights from his years of experience! Mark and Rob talk about how the industry has changed, and they examine the present-day landscape.

In this show we also talk about the way corporate entities behave as if they’re individual traders. And of course, we revisit our recurring theme of this podcast and discuss the heart of self-sabotage in trading. Rob and Mark also discuss ways to turn your space at home into your very own trading desk! Mark also talks about the importance of sticking with your own plan and assessing the details in front of you, rather than being swayed by the opinions of others. Join us to hear more!

In Episode 616 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker and the producer Jason Pyles use the new Marvel blockbuster movie, “Avengers: Infinity War,” to draw some parallels to principles in trading. We don’t venture into major plot spoilers, and seeing the movie isn’t required for understanding this episode; however, in our next Part 2 of this theme, we would encourage everyone to see the movie because we will be delving into major spoilers for Episode 617, in order to make more in-depth trading comparisons. Traders assemble!

Welcome to The Traders Podcast, Episode 615! For today’s show, your usual host, Rob Booker, is traveling and having adventures, so Jason the producer invited “The Coach” Scott Welsh to guest host once again! You can find Scott online at: Scottwelsh.me

In Episode 615, Scott discusses how “dirty jobs,” or unpleasant jobs that nobody wants, are inherently insulated from the whims of the economy. They also tend to be lucrative! These are jobs that are always needed and always seem to have openings. Scott likens these types of unsavory professions to the nature of a perfect trading strategy: It’s not sexy or glamorous, but it’s profitable in the long-term. Scott asks us to think about what’s possible for our own trading careers if we’re willing “to get dirty” and do what others won’t! Join us to hear more!

Ep 614: The Danger With Thinking You’ve Arrived

by Natalie Pyles on May 1, 2018

 

In Episode 614 of The Traders Podcast, your hosts Rob Booker and the producer Jason Pyles discuss the danger of thinking that you’ve arrived. We’ve all heard the stories or have seen movies that depict this phenomenon: The struggling artist creates from lowly means but is passionate and happy, nonetheless. Then the artist attains wealth and great success and becomes miserable and discontent.

There’s something important about remaining “hungry” and aggressive. Rob tells a true story where he witnessed this phenomenon with a hedge fund. If you start having trouble with your trading, try returning to your roots. Strip your trading back down to the very basics, just the essentials. Get rid of all the superfluous trappings and excess and restrict yourself from unnecessary information. Listen to learn more!

Also if you’ve been eager to learn more about the mysteries of the cryptocurrency market, you can get some more insight from Rob’s free book at RobCoin.com. [click to continue…]

Ep 613: Things I Keep Saying (That No One Hears)

by Natalie Pyles on April 26, 2018

 

You may have heard many lucrative, CEO types say things like, “We overestimate what we can accomplish in a month and underestimate what we can accomplish in seven years.” Bill Gates said 10 years, but Jeff Bezos and Amazon have a seven-year time horizon. Either way, the principle is the same: These wealthy individuals are willing to wait several years for an idea to really start making money.

In Episode 613 of The Traders Podcast, your hosts Rob Booker and the producer Jason Pyles discuss things that Rob keeps saying that no one ever seems to hear. For instance, from our previous episode, “taking small gains and compounding them over time” is one of those things, and it sounds similar to the Bezos / Gates approach mentioned above.

During this episode, we also talk about being too consumed with our problem rather than being consumed with our goals. We also discuss the distraction of caring too much about what other people think. Just remember: Trading is a marathon, not a sprint. Join us to learn more!

And if you should ever be interested in learning more about the wild world of the cryptocurrency market, then you can gain some great insights from Rob’s free book at RobCoin.com.

Ep 612: Killing the Goose That Lays the Golden Eggs

by Natalie Pyles on April 24, 2018

 

A recurring theme on The Traders Podcast is the long-view, sure-bet principles of minimizing your losses to small amounts and taking small gains and compounding them over time. This is the way to profitability in currency trading. Though it’s not very sexy or exciting, this method is analogous to “the goose that laid the golden eggs” from Aesop’s Fables. A trader can set aside one golden egg each day, or a trader can choose to become impatient, kill the goose, and lose everything.

In Episode 612 of The Traders Podcast, your hosts Rob Booker and Jason the producer talk about finding an approach to trading that’s easy for you to do successfully, regardless of how profitable it is, and then sticking with it for the long haul. Many traders tend to get bored easily, so they will wander away from something that’s actually working, just because it seems too simple. We hope you will give this episode a listen. We believe it will help! Join us!

By the way, if you’ve been morbidly curious about the mysterious cryptocurrency market, you can learn more from Rob’s free book! Receive it by visiting RobCoin.com. Thanks for listening.

Ep 611: The Secret Weapon of Order

by Natalie Pyles on April 19, 2018

 

Episode 611Today’s lesson for The Traders Podcast, Episode 611, is both figurative and literal. First, your host Rob Booker lays the groundwork by talking about cleaning up your workspace to ensure that it’s tidy and organized. Will an empty desk with no clutter help you trade better? We believe it will.

Once you have cleared out your workspace and have thrown away the clutter and anything else that isn’t working, you can take the same action toward your trading account.

Rob is working on a new trading experiment along these lines. He’s running a robot in a $127,000 trading account. He has cleared the clutter and has thrown away anything that isn’t working. He closes his losses. Don’t hang onto something because you believe it might come in handy or you will use it later. Just let it go. Join us to learn more!
