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 629: Principles of Trend Trading

Welcome to Episode 629 of The Traders Podcast, featuring your host, Rob Booker. During this show, Rob discusses how trend trading is accompanied by inherent weaknesses and obstacles that can’t be avoided. Even so, many traders still believe in trend trading as if it were “a trading religion,” of sorts. In fact, it seems that some traders are unable to imagine a world where anyone wouldn’t want to be a trend trader. So, given its prominence, Rob takes some time to focus on the principles of trend trading.
