In this 49-minute, extended episode of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker chats with Matt LaCoco and Shonn Campbell about all the usual topics that you’d expect — psychics, yaks and traveling through the time-space continuum — sure, but they also discuss the following:
Personal mantras for life; the purpose in having someone to talk with about trading; the practice of skipping the first trade of each day, what it can do for your trading, and if this rule applies to automated trading systems; since robots never get emotional (but humans do), then why does anyone ever want to run their trading account in a discretionary fashion?; the role of intuition or “gut feelings”; the dangers of becoming obsessed with extraordinarily profitable days in the market and the way these big days can alter our thinking about trading; ceasing to worry about “What Could Have Been”; getting fed up with our pitfalls to the point that we’re motivated enough to stop falling into the same traps… just to name a few.
