9/26/2018
More
For this episode, I speak with Hugo Bowne-Anderson; a data scientist at DataCamp (an educational platform for learning to code) and host of the DataFramed podcast. The idea for asking Hugo to appear on this episode, was to chat about learning a programming language.

Although he currently lives in Texas, Nick and I were able to catch up, sit down and record this podcast while he was back in Sydney last month. We got talking about many things; from dealing chips at The Star casino to...

This special episode of Chat With Traders was recorded in June 2018, in front of a live audience in Sydney. It’s a conversation I had with John Moulton, though better known as Rambo.

2/9/2018
More
Phil Goedeker has been trading stocks for, roughly, 15 years. He started young, in college, made a truckload of money in a short period of time, which then afforded him the luxury of never having to work a “real job.” Admittedly, Phil will tell you, luck was a major factor early on. Nonetheless, he’s been abundantly successful since, and has continued trading—now with a strategy, with rules and with an edge. Phil’s way of trading is to short parabolic moves—on low float stocks which have...

But since then, he’s really stepped it up a notch… Alex started 2017 with an account balance of $32,000 and finished the year with a compounded return of 1,400%.

12/28/2017
More
Anthony Saliba, an original Market Wizard, was first on episode 107. On that episode, we mostly discussed Tony’s life as a trader and related subjects. But one area we didn’t get into too much, was his life as a parallel entrepreneur and an investor. So, I mentioned to Tony, this time around, it’s something I’m keen to hear a lot more about.

Rick Lane is the current CEO of Trading Technologies—a software provider that develop high-performance trading platforms which are used by; proprietary traders, hedge funds, CTAs, brokers and banks etc. The reason why I asked Rick to appear on this episode is because, as we know, not everyone is cut out to be a trader.
