Episode 72: Trading Down to The Wire

by robbooker on August 15, 2012


Your host, Rob Booker, is joined by Traders Podcast producer, Jason Pyles, to discuss how HBO’s exceptional television series “The Wire” relates to trading for a living. Rob draws parallels between how Avon Barksdale and his nephew, D’Angelo Barksdale — two characters from “The Wire” TV series — approach the drug trade in Baltimore, Maryland. So, if you’ve ever wondered how your approach to trading compares to the way a druglord runs his empire, then please join us for another colorful episode of The Traders Podcast. We think you’ll have a good time.

I looove the traders podcast Rob.
Thank you!!!
The podcast summary that Jason put together in your absence was fantastic.
And the idea of not having to make $5 million a day to consider myself a “real” trader wash most amazing one. Much needed paradigm shift for me.

You’re the bestest!!!

another great show Rob and Jason too. I recommend Matthew Perry’s new show GO ON, found the pilot on Hulu, 24 minutes, I laughed and teared up and watched it twice. great lessons on moving on from loss and just living, lots of trading metaphors of course.

I spent this Thanksgiving weekend listening very intently to many of these podcasts. I have to thank you for helping me focus on some of the systems that I have created. I looked at some of the problems that have prevented me from making consistent profits and I feel that
I have a much better grasp of things now.
Again, thanks so much.
