Episode 125: Plateau Trading and Mastering Your Craft

In this episode, your host Rob Booker caught up with Shonn Campbell of Colorado Springs to discuss Shonn’s new eBook about “Plateau Trading.” Shonn mentions how the George Leonard book “Mastery: The Keys to Success and Long-Term Fulfillment” and the documentary “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” (2011) have recently influenced his thinking and inspired him to write his new eBook.

Rob and Shonn discuss the theory of plateauing, which some say is almost necessary in one’s journey to becoming great at something. Shonn gives his opinions of how long one should stay on “the backtesting plateau,” either backtesting or experimenting with one’s trading strategy. They talk about what it means to not become emotionally involved in the market, what it means to master your craft, and what it means to perfect the art of trading. And Rob reveals what may very well be the greatest problem faced by traders who want to make a living trading full time. Tune in!

Episode 116: Rob Dreams of Trading

For this unusual episode of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker and his producer speak with the CEO of Rob Booker Japan, Mr. Bradley Fried, about David Gelb’s fascinating 2011 documentary titled “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” (2011).

And though a film about a master sushi chef may not seem like it has anything to do with trading, the reason we discuss this documentary is because it illustrates golden principles that can help traders — as well as anyone with the desire and ambition to be successful in his or her work. We talk about the pursuits of perfection, self-improvement and the dedication of one’s entire life to becoming the best at a particular craft. You won’t want to miss this one!
