Episode 258: Does God Help Traders?

In Episode 258, your host Rob Booker begins by discussing a New York Times article about Justin Zormelo, a private adviser in advanced analytics for NBA players. Rob uses this as a topical springboard to address having too much information versus having too little (for trading). Next Rob talks about Google’s self-driving cars, which leads to some brief thoughts about trading robots that have no human intervention.

Next we move in to our listener feedback, with an e-mail from Calvin who asks if it’s illegal to trade with an off-shore broker. Then Scott asks about brokers, the MT4 Platform and the Asian Session. Scott also asks Jason if he has started trading yet, and he inquires whether Rob and Jason are religious, which leads to an inevitable discussion about whether God helps traders! You don’t want to miss this one! Thanks for listening to The Traders Podcast.
