Ep 581: The Beginner’s Mind – An Impressive Lack of Citation

Will reading a bunch of books and obtaining academic knowledge about the markets guarantee that you will become a more profitable trader?

In Episode 581 of The Traders Podcast, your hosts Rob Booker and the producer Jason Pyles talk about blazing your own trail instead of just trying to do the same thing everyone else is doing.
