Episode 158: Mirage Trading

Are you a Mirage Trader? Do your biases blind you to seeing the reality of what’s actually on your charts? We hope not. Today in Episode 158, your host Rob Booker speaks with veteran trader Jared Johnson, the CEO, founder and president of Day Traders FX.com, about the emptiness of mirage trading, the scary phenomenon of seeing something that isn’t there…

Rob was recently speaking with a trader who was struggling and complained that no one appreciated how difficult trading was for this person. Jared describes his friend who would secretly trade from her day job by having a little laptop hidden under her desk. Then Rob shares a story about how he unwittingly and unexpectedly footed the bill for some special services that two of his employees received in New York City…

Rob asks Jared about his daily routine when he wakes up at 4 a.m., and they discuss Jared’s average amount of sleep on any given night. Rob describes his own odd morning routine that occurs before he starts trading each day. And Rob and Jared bring you an update on their combined trading account for charity, and they comment on how nice it’s been not to worry or stress about each other. Tune in! Read More
