STR 148: Highly Competitive? That’s Good.. Kind of…

This discussion certainly got my blood boiling. As someone who is in the coaching/teaching/mentoring business, it truly drives me insane when I see others creating a bad name for everyone. We have a shining example of this thanks to our [...]

Duration: 01:12:17

STR 147: A Work in Progress

We try our best to keep things as “real” as possible on the show, and in this episode I think we do a great job of that given our guest’s strategy. In most instances, the topic of technical charts come up given many in our community use [...]

Duration: 01:00:30

STR 146: Investing Into Education Pays. Here’s Some 6 Digit Proof.

The impacts of a quality plan can lead to big things. How big? How about a six figure gain within your trading account? What I love about the podcast is the many shapes and forms the motivation and inspiration can take. This time around, [...]

STR 145: Talking Trading with a London Trader.

I have no idea what took so long, but we finally have a guest from the UK! I will say this though, it was worth the wait! As far as new trader horror stories are concerned, I’m pretty sure I have a new favorite. I had a great conversation [...]

STR 144: Some Live Coaching with Long Time Member Alex

While it is never planned ahead of time, once in a while throughout the course of a discussion it can turn into a coaching session. Thanks to the feedback you as listeners provide, I know many of you enjoy being a fly on the wall and [...]

STR 143: The “Make a Trade” Emotion is VERY REAL

One of the biggest factors of failure in trading is created by the emotion/feeling of “make a trade”. Sure, at first it can be nerve-racking to do your first couple of trades; however, after that the floodgates of “make a trade” come out in [...]

Duration: 01:01:41

STR 142: Learning to Focus on the Process First.

While our guest had always known about the market, he had a bit of a twist in the sense that everything he heard about it was negative. The cherry on top was he also had a friend who was personally affected by losing all their money in the [...]

Duration: 01:04:14

STR 141: Welcoming Back Our Forex Trading Viking Friend! Let’s Go Norse!

We are going international again and bringing back a former guest. The last time we spoke with Norse was, literally, years ago (wow, has the podcast really been around that long? Time flies!). To his credit, he is still around and going [...]

Duration: 01:04:52

STR 140: He Operates His Own Metaphorical Casino. Welcome Back Cubs!

If you are not aware, you will be after reading the next sentence. There are quite a few people who approach and use the stock market as a “stay at home” Las Vegas. They believe trading is all about luck and is “a gamble”, so that’s how [...]

Duration: 00:59:53

STR 139: Step Back. Slow Down. Make Decision.

As many of you know, I love me a good analogy, and in this episode we have several of them… the one that really stood out though was in regards to pitching in baseball and trading. Chris is our guest (‘thekidcanrake’ in the chat room) and [...]

STR 138: Here’s How the Concept of Risk is Subjective – Part 2

Before anything else, this is Part 2 of a multi-part interview, so if you want it all to make the most sense, then be sure to listen to episode 137 first. I’ve really enjoyed the feedback so far from Part 1 on the discussion as there [...]

Duration: 00:56:38

STR 137: Here’s How the Concept of Risk is Subjective

If you’re a long time listener, then you know the topic of ‘risk’ has come up on…well… more than one occasion. This is once again the case, but with a little bit different of a twist that does an excellent job [...]

Duration: 00:53:19

STR 136: Recovering from a Terrible “Guru” Experience

I’m going to do my best not to go off on a rant as I type this up at this very moment. All I’ll say is BE CAREFUL when it comes to those “guru’s” using expensive lifestyles or extraordinary results as the [...]

Duration: 01:08:33

STR 135: Being Bored While Trading. That’s His Goal.

The title of this podcast may seem a bit odd, but in all reality, the goal for all traders should be to become bored. In this episode we welcome back Tony from all the way out in Hawaii (so jealous!) so he can update us all on how his [...]

Duration: 00:55:39

STR 134: An Increasing Account, but Humble Attitude. Welcome Back Fordy!

Humility is a great attribute to have as a trader, and our guest is a perfect example of this. We bring back former guest Mike (‘HeyFordy’ in the chat room) to discuss how his journey has continued to unfold since the last time [...]

Duration: 01:07:07

STR 133: Fool’s Gold to Slow Bleed.

You can never get too much of the classic fool’s gold syndrome. Most veteran traders have had this syndrome at some point in their journey (myself included), and most newer traders have it right now. The key is, the sooner they [...]

Duration: 01:11:41

STR 132: 1946 is When His Journey Started. Be Prepared to Be Inspired

I’ve talked to 100’s of people on the podcast, and while I’ve enjoyed every single one of those discussions, this is one that will stick with me for a long time. Sure, our guest Ron got on my good side by being a fellow [...]

Duration: 01:08:39

STR 131: Joining Forces with a Penny Stock Company

This interview made me laugh for sure. Not in a mean way, but rather in a “I can relate” type way. Did I ever go as far as our guest? No… he took things to a whole new level when it comes to going down the penny stock [...]

Duration: 01:06:50

STR 130: Taking the Mental Game to a Whole New Level! Welcome Back Hamlet!

We’re bringing back a former guest and hearing all about where he stands in his current trading journey. We interviewed Hamlet (“Crusader” in chat room) a little over a year ago and he’s still going strong. I [...]

Duration: 00:59:37

STR 129: Paying Himself Nicely and Rebooting. Welcome Back Dim!

We have a pretty unique situation which up until this point, I’m not sure we’ve encountered. I’m always up for a new experience and you better be too! Shawn is back with us again (chat room alias “Dimliwitti”) [...]
