Episode 338: What I Learned About Trading From the Movie “Whiplash”


Episode 338 of The Traders Podcast is another solocast featuring your host Rob Booker. In this show, Rob talks about Damien Chazelle’s 2014 film “Whiplash,” starring Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons and Miles Teller. Rob uses the story of this film as a metaphor for currency trading. Rob calls “Whiplash” a wake-up call for him as a trader.

You won’t have to have seen the film to follow this podcast. And don’t worry, Rob doesn’t reveal any major spoilers, if you haven’t seen it yet. Rob asks us to examine whether we’re too easy on ourselves. And he talks about the desire to be the best (and how we don’t have to be the best to be profitable). Don’t miss this one! Thanks for listening.
