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.

How do we know when the market is going to turn, or change directions? David has some ideas about that, and as a quantitative strategist and the curator of the Speculative Sentiment Index (SSI) published by FXCM, he is particularly qualified to talk about how he judges market psychology from the numbers that cross his screen every day.

Episode 29: Wine-Tasting and Trading Strategy

Rob Booker and his guest co-host, Jennifer Thornburg, trading blogger and author of the article “Sex and Trading,” talk over the phone with expert wine-taster, bike-rider and quantitative strategist David Rodriguez of Daily FX.com. In this episode you’ll hear about wine-tasting; an analogy on the making of a good wine and the making of a good trading strategy; the mistake that brand new traders make when creating their trading strategies; and an answer to the question, once and for all, whether one can be cited for bicycling while intoxicated.

Episode 22: Sex and Trading Part 1

Yes, you read that correctly — sex and trading! In this memorable episode of The Traders Podcast, Rob talks with special guest Jennifer Thornburg about some parallels she’s been drawing between sex and trading. Though this show is a bit of a teaser, it is only Part 1 of 2 shows. Part 2 — the juicy stuff — will follow in the next episode of “Sex and Trading.”

Even so, you don’t want to miss Part 1, because in this show Rob and Jennifer also discuss why trading is addictive, the life-changing conversations Jennifer had once with a tall, red-headed man with $200,000 cash in Hong Kong, and overcoming her personal obstacle of “random trading.” Jennifer also talks about defining for herself what it means to be a successful trader, and she explains why she has such an affinity for the long-term charts.
