Episode 128: Employing ESP, Remote Viewing and the Intuitive Mind in Trading

In this very unusual episode of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker interviews Greg Kolodziejzyk (aka Greg K.), who wrote a research paper about a 13-year study that he conducted, which was recently published in The Journal of Parapsychology, where he explored the role of intuition in trading. Rob and Greg talk about the two components of intuition, the phenomenon of ESP (extra-sensory perception), and they delve into an exploration of a controversial technique known as “remote viewing.”

Rob asks if the analytical mind gets in the way of the intuitive mind’s natural ability to make good decisions. And Greg talks about combining something that’s intuitive with something that’s chart-based or technical-based. In Episode 128, you’ll also hear Rob comment on a book called Opening to the Infinite. And if you’re a skeptic who’s wondering whether you should skip such an outlandish episode, you might want to hear Greg reveal the profits that he generated over this 13-year period of trading with the intuitive mind. Oh, and stick around after this episode for some casual BONUS conversation about this intriguing subject. Thanks for listening!

This episode blew my mind! I really do believe in intuition and am now wondering how I can incorporate it more into my trading. I’ve found that I’m more successful when I trade small and am allowed to “feel” the market without giant swings in the P&L. It doesn’t make much sense how I’m able to make more money when I cut down my size but I think it comes down to allowing this intuition to do the heavy lifting rather than my clunky caveman brain. You’ve given my some good food-for-thought.

I guess this Stephan A. Schwartz book is going to be added to my night stand pile. How do you find amazing guests like this? Please have Greg back! Also his layperson summary paper on his site was pretty cool.

I cant believe that i stumbled on to this podcast. This is exactly where i have ended up after 3 1/2 years of hard work trading currencies. I use my brain to work out the trade then relax and rely on intuition as to whether to take the trade or not, simple decision I think is important point. As long as i control my ego and greed I make consistent money. Thank you so much for this podcast and Mr. Greg K. you just sold a kindle version of ur book to me on Amazon.

btw, my hard work has included meditation practice, organic foods, being polite to people and myself(being better person) and all the crap that most people interested in trading would probably regard as unrelated or possibly nuts:)

Ray, I am so happy to hear from you. And I will pass on your comment to Greg. I thought there were more traders out there who relied on intuition – and this proves it. Happy Wednesday!

Rob
