Episode 235: Losing Money and the Jesse Livermore Mentality Toward Risk

As a follow-up to Episode 234 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker talks about the unsavory topic of losing money. He also talks about riding out your losses (strategically) and the Jesse Livermore mentality toward risk. This is an episode about traders for whom the money isn’t as important as The Game. Rob says this is a financially perilous approach to trading that can end disastrously, but it can also be a way to make some big profits. If this mentality isn’t for you (and it’s not for most people), we think you’ll at least find it entertaining to hear about it. Thanks for listening!

Episode 180: Brokers, Bankruptcy and Matt LaCoco

Episode 180 is another listener mail bag show, where your host Rob Booker begins by asking the producer, Jason Pyles, about his five other podcasts (links and descriptions can be found below). Then we dive into the mail bag:

Pablo writes to ask about brokers and bankruptcy. Nate thinks Matt LaCoco, Shonn Campbell and a number of other Rob Booker cohorts should have their own podcasts! James wrote in to request more Matt LaCoco, which leads into a discussion of sports drink flavors, which leads into a discussion about Fly Boarding. Peter writes to ask how to listen to The Traders Podcast on his iPhone. James sent in a comment about Jesse Livermore. Daljit had a question for Rob about his own personal trading. And Alan asks about “Booker reversal tabs.” All of this — and so much more trading-related commentary — in Episode 180 of The Traders Podcast.

Episode 179: A Conversation From The Cigar Shop With Matt LaCoco and Shonn Campbell

In Episode 179, we bring you a little treat that’s a change of pace… Your host Rob Booker loves to hear what our fellow trading friends are thinking about — especially when those friends are Matt LaCoco and Shonn Campbell. Naturally, Rob sent them a digital audio recorder to capture their conversations about trading. … Naturally.

So, what you’re about to hear is a 20-minute excerpt of what was originally a 70-minute conversation between Shonn and Matt as they hang out at The Cigar Shop. This episode is a lot of fun, but it takes a little bit of concentration to listen to because there’s a great deal of ambient noise in the background, including a fountain and other people’s voices. But we sometimes like to capture the raw conversations that traders have “out in the field.”

Matt and Shonn discuss a number of topics, including the pitfalls of Read More
