Episode 53: The Greek Financial Crisis

It’s the episode you’ve been waiting for… Your Traders Podcast host, Rob Booker, gives you an in-depth analysis of the Greek Financial Crisis. Rob springboards into this podcast by using a couple of audio clips of James Altucher, an American hedge fund manager, author, and blogger, who describes how he thinks Greece and Europe are related, and the humorous concept of “the Greek contagion.”

Rob also discusses whether there is enough exposure to the U.S. banking system for Greece to matter. He gives you his take on the long-term and short-term plays on this Greece news, and to what degree it’s a potential problem. And Rob talks about how the perception of the market is always more important than the reality.

And naturally, as one might expect, we close out this episode by giving you the best weapon for surviving during a zombie apocalypse. Thanks for listening!

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.
