Episode 262: Be Your Own Best Advocate

Welcome to The Traders Podcast, Episode 262. In this show your host Rob Booker talks about the notion of traders being their own worst enemies. Rob was recently asked how to know if his trading system is simply going through a temporary rough period versus when it’s time to call it quits on that system. Rob also spends some time discussing James Altucher as an example of a person with a quiet, understated confidence about his own abilities. Rob also invites any listeners who live in Paris, France, to e-mail or leave a comment, that he might meet you this week. Thanks for listening.

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!
