Episode 172: The 18-Mile Bike Trek and Trading

In Rob’s absence today, the Producer Jason Pyles is pleased to bring back guest host Bradley Fried, the CEO of Rob Booker Japan. At Rob’s request, Brad takes some time to discuss his 18-mile bicycle ride, and as is a steady tradition on this podcast, we draw parallel, metaphorical principles to trading. Everything relates back to trading.

Brad says that riding a bike and trading require similar skills. We’ll save the bicycle parallels for the show, but some of the trading-related concepts that Brad addresses are the following:

— the futility of thinking we can force the market to do our bidding
— working through challenging circumstances that are not ideal
— feeling impatient about making lots of money quickly
— the key skills of knowing when to keep going and knowing when to stop
— the psychology of moving past a loss
— removing pressure from our trading by letting go of expectations
— and more! Read More

Episode 162: Guest Host Bradley Fried Discusses Three of His Trading Rules

We have a surprise development for you for Episode 162 … Your usual host, Rob Booker, was on the road while we were recording, so we asked Bradley Fried, the CEO of Rob Booker Japan, to stand in as a guest host of The Traders Podcast! And we think you listeners will enjoy hearing from Brad, because he discusses three of his 18 trading rules.

Brad talks about Rule No. 15, which addresses how placing expectations of wealth or solving financial problems with trading injects the process with emotion and disables it. This is the rule where Brad says to focus on process, not profits. Brad also discusses his Rule No. 14, which encourages you to make your trading an active and creative process, not a mechanical one. And Brad also tells us about Rule No. 18, which involves the practice of rewarding yourself. You don’t want to miss this episode — Brad tears it up!

Episode 116: Rob Dreams of Trading

For this unusual episode of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker and his producer speak with the CEO of Rob Booker Japan, Mr. Bradley Fried, about David Gelb’s fascinating 2011 documentary titled “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” (2011).

And though a film about a master sushi chef may not seem like it has anything to do with trading, the reason we discuss this documentary is because it illustrates golden principles that can help traders — as well as anyone with the desire and ambition to be successful in his or her work. We talk about the pursuits of perfection, self-improvement and the dedication of one’s entire life to becoming the best at a particular craft. You won’t want to miss this one!
