    Lance Breitstein – The Ultimate Day Trader, Pt. 3

    Lance Breitstein – The Ultimate Day Trader, Pt. 3

    The promised and much-anticipated follow-up interview with Lance Breitstein…
    Lance was formerly a Senior Trader at proprietary firm Trillium. He earned the rank as ‘Top Trader’ in 2020 and 2021 with consecutive 8-figure years, also setting the firms’ all-time PnL record.
    While Lance appeared on the podcast only a few months back, the interview was recorded a few years back. However, this interview is very recent, it was recorded 13th June 2022—after Nasdaq declined 4% on the day, sparking initial comments about market context.
    Our discussion primarily revolves around several core trading concepts that have greatly attributed to Lance’s outstanding performance: The Broken Slot Machine, The Right Side of the V, and Channel Fundamentals. Furthermore, Lance shares wisdom on bet sizing and methods to accelerate your learning curve.

    Chris Cady – A Lifetime Student of Markets

    Today, I bring you a man who’s truly seen it all: Chris Cady

    From there, Chris delves into some of the best/worst times throughout his career in futures markets—and shares a captivating story about the “radical” silver traders and infamous Hunt Brothers.

    Domer – The Information Edge: Winning in Prediction Markets

    Domer – The Information Edge: Winning in Prediction Markets

    While many are only hearing about prediction markets for the first time, for near a decade, anonymous trader Domer (@Domahhhh) has been at the frontier of profiting from outcomes of unknown future events.
    Political and economic matters are Domer’s specialty, although he doesn’t shy away from the rather abstract events either—for example; trading on the outcome of Britney Spear’s conservatorship and the Suez Canal obstruction!
    Now at a point where he’s netting PnL of several hundred thousand dollars a year (across multiple exchanges), much of Domer’s winnings are due to his ability to garner an information edge and rejection of the Efficient Market Hypothesis.

    James Chen – Obscure Edges, Outsized Alpha

    James Chen – Obscure Edges, Outsized Alpha

    James Chen is an equities trader and a partner at Sydney-based fund BlueLake Partners. Furthermore, he’s a heavy-hitter who operates on a different level to most…
    For well over a decade, James has been discovering edges and developing trades that the typical trader would consider as rather obscure. And for that reason, we’re fortunate to have James on the record—being able to learn about how his brain ticks.
    Our interview starts with James telling how he cut his teeth trading retail, then how he exploited a loophole in an ASX trading competition, won and got hired. Next, we discuss trades surrounding index rebalances and dual-listed stocks, and lastly, James imparts with comprehensive thoughts on finding alpha.

Fantastic resource, a treasure trove

I began wading into my trading journey halfway through 2021, studying for and passing some FINRA exams and reading and listening to several books on trading and successful, seminal traders Jim Simons and Ed Thorp. I recently began trading with a proprietary trading firm with a very modest account size, and I have quickly learned how little I understand markets and how much more there is to learn — a lifetime and more of learning ahead, and Chat with Traders has become a favorite, beloved resource for me to continue to develop context and depth and breadth of understanding trading concepts, market structure, and the wide range of approaches, time frames, strategies, what have you. Aaron Fifield has a straightforward, approachable, understated way of bringing out the very human and tangible experience and knowledge of an impressive array of guests from a wide variety of trading-connected fields, markets, and backgrounds. I am working my way through episodes from years past while also listening to more current ones based on what topics seem most relevant to a trader at my early stage of development. I hope Mr. Fifield will continue this podcast for years to come.
