Episode 52: What Mad Men’s Don Draper Can Teach Us About Trading

For all the fans of AMC’s “Mad Men” television show, Rob Booker and his producer, Jason Pyles, draw some parallels between the way traders think about the market and the way the lead character in “Mad Men,” Don Draper, thinks about himself (while also comparing the incompatible double-life of Draper and some traders).

Rob also discusses how we often seek to keep certain things about our trading private, and why it’s problematic to have a trading strategy that you don’t want to share with others. Check this one out!

Note: This episode contains some spoilers for “Mad Men,” Season 3.
