Have you ever wondered why you’re able to trade really well for a while when you need to make money, you pay off some bills, and then your success levels off?

In Episode 640, Rob discusses a trading issue that he and other traders have struggled with: What if you have a question about your trading that you’re obsessing over?

Rob and Jason spend some time discussing what this sort of intense focus might mean and how to get past it and work through it. Rob also tells a truly horrifying story about a struggling trader who was trying to punish himself in an unthinkable way. Join us to hear more! Thanks for listening.

Ep. 638: Looking to the Future Like Elon Musk

Welcome to the Traders Podcast Episode 638! Today your host Rob Booker indulges a current event question from Jason about Elon Musk’s recent investigation-stirring tweet.

This guy lives in the future. For traders it begs the question, “What kind of trader would a future-dweller be?”

A trader oriented in the future who is sitting on a lot of losing trades will be motivated to do something about it: close positions, hedge positions, etc.

A trader in the “now” will vacillate between worry and acceptance.

A trader living in the past will be replaying the movie of his past in his head.

Remember that Murphey’s law doesn’t state that whatever that is bad that could happen will happen; it just states that whatever can happen will happen.

Could you start and end every day with a bet about chaos? Could you benefit from that? Rob’s not sure yet, but he knows that things don’t stay where they are. There will be shocks to the system. Ask yourself, “what trade could I take that would benefit from an implosion of the status quo?”

Listen in for a great conversation that also circles around to The HBO hit Succession, Bitcoin and the upcoming Traders Rap! Thanks for tuning in!

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 634: Scott Heywood on Surviving to Trade Tomorrow (and Next Week)

Continuing on with our interview series, Episode 634 of The Traders Podcast brings you the wisdom of Scott Heywood. He talks about his primary trading goal of just surviving to trade tomorrow and next week!

Scott says he doesn’t consider himself a trend trader or even a counter trend trader. He doesn’t make his decisions to trade based on whether a pair is trending. Scott talks about getting his news from Twitter, though he doesn’t let that information worry him or affect his approach to trading.

Scott also talks about his preference of having freedom and flexibility in his schedule rather than adhering to a daily trading routine. Scott does, however, have a weekly routine that he describes during this podcast. When asked how long it takes for a person to learn to trade for a living, Scott explains why it could be anywhere from six months to six years, depending on the individual. He also discusses the value of time and experience. Join us to hear more!

Ep 632: Scott Welsh on Beating the Market

In Episode 632 of The Traders Podcast, your host Rob Booker poses a number of interview questions for guest Scott Welsh to answer at his leisure. In this show, we ask what it means to “beat the market”? Better yet, how does one beat the market? For Scott Welsh, beating the market means creating a return that is consistently higher than if you just bought and held the S&P 500 Index.

Scott is also asked if he is a trend trader, a counter-trend trader or if making such a distinction is nonsensical. Scott talks about the biggest mistake that new traders make. And he also discusses trading goals. We talk about how long it takes for someone to learn to trade for a living when doing discretionary trading. And of course, Scott “The Coach” Welsh incorporates some parallel metaphors from his years of experience in the tennis world. Oh, and it wouldn’t be a Scott Welsh episode if we didn’t discuss a little robot trading, as well. Join us to hear more!
