For Episode 200 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker joins his trusty producer, Jason Pyles — in person in Salt Lake City — at the home of special guest Jared Johnson, the CEO, founder and president of Day Traders FX.com. To celebrate this monumental show, Rob and Jason spend some time reflecting over 200 episodes. And Rob talks about how in podcasting and trading, you just can be on your game every time…
Jared talks about how awful August 2013 was for his trading. And Rob talks about being his own worst enemy (particularly in trading) and watching himself do damage to himself. This leads to a discussion about the necessity to slog through the bad periods to get back to good again.
Rob mentions that he recently revisited Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” album, which made him think about the kind of walls we build around ourselves. Rob also talks about how we have visions of a spectacular future, and we make plans surrounding future success, but oftentimes, we end up merely having sufficient success, but that’s still remarkable. And Rob asks Jason and Jared if they consider themselves to be successful and comments on whether he considers himself successful.
And finally, Rob and Jason speculate about the future of The Traders Podcast. Thank you for listening to 200 episodes. It has been our honor and pleasure to bring them to traders around the world.
