    Episode 61 | Mark Shawzin - Looking for the perfect short

    There are some traders who will tell you the bearish action in the markets we've been sseeing since November 21 is likely to carry on into 2023 and may even produce a recession. One of those traders is Mark Shawzin, aka The Pattern Trader.
    Mark and I got to know each other in 2021. Right from the get go I thought there was something special about the way he trades and the way he teaches others his own way of approaching the markets. I called him on to the show that year and not long after we began writing a book together. More on that soon, I hope. 
    One thing I noticed rightaway: Mark has a bias for shorting. For him, it’s kind of personal. He loves to expose inflated stocks. Who better to have on the show right in the middle of a bear market? I thought to myself. Enjoy the conversation.

    Episode 60 | Norman Hallet - The Disciplined Trader

    Episode 60 | Norman Hallet - The Disciplined Trader

    Norman Hallet's been trading for decades and he now teaches it to traders of all levels. He has a special interest in the psychological and emotional game that makes up most of what we do when it comes to pressing the buy button or sell button.

    This is a longer episode than usual, but I think by the end of it you’ll be asking yourself, how can I tweak my own neural pathways to become a better, more consistent trader.

    Episode 59 | Derrick Oldensmith - senior prop trader

    Episode 59 | Derrick Oldensmith - senior prop trader

    My next guest is trader Derrick Oldensmith from the United States.

    Derrick has been fascinated by the financial markets since we was a kid. He now manages a large team of traders at prop firm T3 Trading.

    As Derrick joined me online today he cheerfully admitted to being heavily down for the day. Of course all sums are relative in the trading game, but the energy with which Derrick throws himself into this conversation is of itself evidence of a very resilient mindset. His combination of humility and conviction struck me as a winning formula for navigating the choppiest of waters.

Great podcast for traders!

This is a fantastic resource for those seeking to grow in their trading abilities. It definitely helps to hear encouraging interviews with various levels of experienced traders and is a reminder that even though trading can feel lonely, we are all on a similar journey and can learn a lot from each other. Def recommend this podcast!
