Episode 338: What I Learned About Trading From the Movie “Whiplash”

by robbooker on March 2, 2015



Episode 338 of The Traders Podcast is another solocast featuring your host Rob Booker. In this show, Rob talks about Damien Chazelle’s 2014 film “Whiplash,” starring Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller. Rob uses the story of this film as a metaphor for currency trading. Rob calls “Whiplash” a wake-up call for him as a trader.

You won’t have to have seen the film to follow this podcast. And don’t worry, Rob doesn’t reveal any major spoilers, if you haven’t seen it yet. Rob asks us to examine whether we’re too easy on ourselves. And he talks about the desire to be the best (and how we don’t have to be the best to be profitable). Don’t miss this one! Thanks for listening.

The Traders Podcast is now on Soundcloud!

Hi Rob,

I listened to this podcast on the train and I believe that it is one of your most powerful podcasts to date. I was about to jump off the train and go back home after kicking myself in the backside for taking it too easy on myself!

Thank you!
