Episode 169: Our Rocket Ship Stock Market, the Unemployment Rate and a Traders Podcast Box Set?

We think Episode 169 is a good time, and we think you’ll agree… First of all, our friend Keiron wrote and asked about purchasing every one of The Traders Podcast episodes in one fell swoop, so we entertain ourselves as we entertain that thought.

Rob also spends some time talking about our rocket ship stock market and the employment market. Are we in some kind of a fake recovery because the economy is not creating jobs fast enough to replace the jobs that were lost during the financial crisis? Rob discusses how the unemployment rate factors in — and how it doesn’t factor in the people who have given up and dropped out of the job market altogether. Rob notes that there are under-employed people who are making less than they used to, and how that’s throwing off the numbers, as well.

Episode 140: Trading by Using Neuro-Linguistic Programming

New Mexico Thanks for tuning in to this fascinating episode! During this show, we catch up with your host, Rob Booker, as he is sitting in the parking lot of a Whole Foods grocery store, somewhere in Salt Lake City. Rob interviews Scott Hines of Australia, who lives at the top of the state of Victoria. Scott is a 14-year veteran trader who uses Neuro-Linguistic Programming (or NLP), which helps to influence one’s emotional and psychological state, or assists in replacing negative behaviors with more positive ones, among other things.

Rob talks to Scott about some specific uses for NLP, such as an example where a trader struggles with fear every time a trade goes into profit. Scott discusses the concept of “anchors,” which are physical or sensory inputs that act as a catalyst for an automatic or instinctive reaction — or in other words — something that serves as a trigger for making a person feel or behave a certain way (and this can be positive or negative). Scott also discusses how human beings make associations and have patterns in place for everything in their lives.

And finally, we’ll also hear a current update from Rob on his Trade-for-a-Living Tour and hear what he’s doing today in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Trust us… you don’t want to miss this one!
