Episode 33: How Traders Become Their Own Worst Enemy

A must-listen third part of a four-part show, Episode 33 features Rob Booker talking with tennis guru Scott Welsh, the inimitable Jennifer Thornburg and Commander Rob Wilson. This discussion begins with Rob describing how a trading intern of his wanted to conquer his problem of self-discipline because he had become his own worst enemy. Scott talks figuratively about how everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. Rob Booker describes an epiphany he received while running in Torty Park regarding the mind and body and movement and stillness. We discuss how honesty can affect your fear of losing money, what happens when not enough is on the line for you as a trader, and the concept of facing the truth because you don’t have time for anything else.

Episode 31: Know the Market and Know Yourself

Episode 31 is the first of four shows that build in co-host numbers and intensity, so you’re going to love these next two weeks of The Traders Podcast. In this first part, Rob Booker is joined by guest co-host Jennifer Thornburg, trading blogger and author of the article, “Sex and Trading,” and together they interview Commander Rob Wilson.

Rob kicks off this show by reading some newspaper headlines to hear how they might affect Jennifer’s and Rob Wilson’s trading for the day. They also talk about adapting one’s methodology to suit one’s personality, and Commander Rob Wilson — the self-proclaimed General of His Pips — explores the analogy of comparing trading to warfare by talking about force, space and time in warfare and how those three factors are the same in trading. He also quotes from the popular book, “The Art of War,” by the Chinese war theorist Sun Tzu, and he discusses the valuable principles of knowing the market and knowing yourself.
