Episode 42: The Fastest Way to Get Your Money Back After a Huge Loss

by robbooker on May 2, 2012


In this second part of four episodes on movies about trading, Rob Booker invites film critic and producer of The Traders Podcast, Jason Pyles, back to talk about the 1983 comedy, “Trading Places,” starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd.

Rob and Jason also discuss how you know when the psychology of the market is going to turn around (or, aka “the G.I. Joe with the kung-fu grip”); whether knowing how to survive on the streets is similar to knowing how to survive in the market; how success in trading is knowing how to withstand pressure; the psychology of desperation and adding discipline to determination; and most importantly — the fastest way to get back as much money as possible after suffering a huge loss. You don’t want to miss this episode!

Hi Rob, I thoroughly enjoyed today’s episode, I don’t know if I am allowed to leave a comment because I didn’t hear you mention it in the podcast, but I think I just have to share my appreciation of how you have been so honest in sharing your very personal journey with the $15 door monitors etc, it is humbling revelations like that from great traders like you which really motivates me into delving deeper into this potential sagging career, Thanx

Love your podcasts. It is the best entertainment a trader could have while watching his trades on the screen.

Hi Rob, thanks for your honesty telling your own story when you started in trading with the three big monitors and the door as a desk, very inspiring and real!!!!
