Ep 639: A Trading League of Our Own

Welcome to the Traders Podcast Episode 639! Boy are we glad to be back. Today your host Rob Booker, who’s 50% improved from a 7-day fever from the depths of you-know-where, regales us with his heroic recovery. And, he catches up with Jason on his summer and the rap.

Understandably, Rob hasn’t been discretionarily trading in these summer months, which isn’t uncommon. Robots are great though because you don’t have to do anything. They can keep trading for you even if you’re so sick you want to claw your eyeballs out and stick them in the freezer.

Here’s the big news: In August and September Rob is assembling a group of 500 traders to trade together. They’re going to be trading the same way with the same robot, so they really concentrate on each element of doing something. Rob likens this act of revisiting the fundamentals to a profound lesson he learned from a business partner years ago, who, before beginning a software install that he’d done numerous times before, did the most unthinkable thing. He read the owner’s manual. Please join us!

Ep 636: A Trader’s No. 1 Goal Is to Reduce Drawdown

What is your No. 1 goal in trading? To make money? No.

In Episode 636 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker explains why your No. 1 “secret goal” as a trader is to reduce drawdown. Rob says a trader’s primary responsibility is to reduce drawdown and cut your losses. You want to avoid holding on to your losses for long periods of time.

During this question-and-answer show, the producer Jason Pyles also talks to Rob about a number of universal, trading-related queries. Rob says the famous phrase in trading is, “You can’t win if you don’t play,” but the phrase should be, “You can’t play if you don’t win.” Listen to this episode to learn how to win more!

Ep 631: The Genesis of a Traders’ Rap

In a very unusual episode of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker talks with the producer Jason Pyles about some of the themes of trading, including the perpetual pursuit of more time, money and influence.

Traders are also commonly subject to disappointment, heartbreak, depression, confusion, anger and self-sabotage. Traders are also full of hope and desires for fast cars and a beach-side life. Rob also discusses the characteristics of traders who “come up hard” by starting out in the traders’ school of hard knocks, so to speak.

Rob also commissions Jason to complete an intriguing task! Using some of the themes mentioned above, Rob hires Jason to write and record a traders’ rap song! Join us to hear more!

Ep 627: Should Traders Follow the Rules or Not?

Welcome to a special edition of The Traders Podcast. Here in Episode 627, your usual host Rob Booker is traveling, so Jason the producer welcomes back guest host “The Coach” Scott Welsh! Scott asks a very simple question: Should traders follow the rules or not?

To tease out this mystery, Scott recounts his firsthand experience with a tennis student who followed all his coaching rules perfectly — to the letter. Scott talks about the great success this student found while following the structure that he put in place for her. Jason and Scott also discuss how some people actually ask for strict rules and why those people often do better!

But we also examine the downside to rules: What happens when the rule-maker disappears? What if the rule-follower no longer has problem-solving skills? Scott also spends some time talking about the concept of guidelines, an inevitably, he delivers a verdict on his initial question! But you’ll need to listen to find out more! Join us!

Ep 626: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

There are a number of expressions that can easily be applied to currency trading. For instance, the idea of “beginner’s luck” or not being able to “see the forest for the trees.” Many of these notions seem to hold true, including the suggestion that “absence makes the heart grow fonder.” Obviously, that expression speaks to human relationships, but any trader can attest that he or she has a relationship with trading, as well.

In Episode 626 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker and the producer Jason Pyles talk about reinvigorating your creativity through taking a breather and then giving your trading a fresh start. Perhaps it’s time to explore a new platform, just for kicks. Maybe even take a look at a brand-new trading instrument. The idea is to stop the stagnation and break out of your daily rut. If you take a break from the market for a week, then when you return, note whether you see things differently! Try it out and let us know how it goes. Thanks for listening!

In Episode 625 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker might not sound like himself, but rest assured, it’s the real Rob!

Episode 611

In Episode 620 of The Traders Podcast, Rob and Jason receive a funny, double-edged comment from Nick, a martial arts instructor, who makes fun of Rob’s glasses.
