Episode 22: Sex and Trading Part 1

Yes, you read that correctly — sex and trading! In this memorable episode of The Traders Podcast, Rob talks with special guest Jennifer Thornburg about some parallels she’s been drawing between sex and trading. Though this show is a bit of a teaser, it is only Part 1 of 2 shows. Part 2 — the juicy stuff — will follow in the next episode of “Sex and Trading.”

Even so, you don’t want to miss Part 1, because in this show Rob and Jennifer also discuss why trading is addictive, the life-changing conversations Jennifer had once with a tall, red-headed man with $200,000 cash in Hong Kong, and overcoming her personal obstacle of “random trading.” Jennifer also talks about defining for herself what it means to be a successful trader, and she explains why she has such an affinity for the long-term charts.
