Stock Trading Reality Podcast Cover

Thanks for checking out the ClayTrader Stock Trading Reality Podcast. Our show, hosted by ClayTrader and Chezz, is designed to motivate and inspire traders of all experience levels. We interview REAL traders, discuss their trading journey, and lessons they learned along the way, both positive and negative.

Tune in as we focus on the realistic side of trading. You will find no interviews of "hot shot" wall street traders, rather, we sit down and talk with normal people, just like you. There is no such thing as overnight success, so come with us as we learn about the peaks and valleys of various trader's journeys.

STR 200: Ouch! We Talk Our Biggest Trading Mistakes (& How to Avoid Them)

Wow. We did it! Not only did we hit 200 episodes, but we did it 200 weeks in a row. A special thanks to our community whom I give all the credit to for allowing this feat to be accomplished. Without you and your willingness to share your experiences, there is no way we could […]

STR 199: Just Take the Loss (and a Breath). Welcome Back Rena!

A community favorite of mine is back to update us on her journey. Rena (same name in the chatroom) is someone I admire greatly. I’ve met her in person on multiple occasions and she is someone who we can all learn from given her willingness to talk about anything and everything, particularly the “bad stuff”. […]


As painful as it is to hear: go slow. I’m well aware and had to learn the hard way of what rushing into the markets can lead to, so I would not call you an idiot if that’s where your mind is at; however, just realize, you’re on the wrong path! Our guest, Jose (chatroom […]

STR 197: Getting Good at Being a Loser. Welcome Back Mark!

If you want to succeed, you must lose. While I realize that is a seemingly contradicting statement, it is a critical skill that must be mastered as a trader. Our guest, Mark (‘hyprsnpr’ in the chat room), walks us through his updated journey, particularly in regards to his relationship with losing. He is doing a […]

STR 196: Recognizing When to Tap the Brakes. Welcome Back Nate!

A long time member and friend is back, Nate Wilson. For those of you who are members of the community, he goes by the same name in the chatroom and has been around from almost the beginning. He’s become a personal friend of mine (particularly if you watch the vlogs on the YouTube channel) and […]

STR 195: OptionSellers.com Roasts Its Client Base. Let's Learn!

We are trying something new, so your feedback is certainly welcomed and wanted! In this episode, Chezz and I discuss a recent event that caught fire in the headlines. Perhaps you are aware, but if not, the website OptionSellers.com got extremely careless with their client’s money and ended up creating a massive… we’ll call it… […]

STR 194: Week One: Annihilation. Then What?

We’re back with another classic tale of getting punched in the teeth as a rookie. Thanks to our guest, Blake (those of you in the chat room community will known him as ‘ElkTrout’), and his openness, we are given an insight into the dangers of approaching the market in… unwise….ways. I’ve met Blake in person […]

Don’t Be Too Hard on Yourself. Welcome Back Zep!

Before we hosted this discussion, our guest from the community, “Zep” (same name in chat room), sent us a lengthy email that had me quite nervous. I don’t want to offer up any spoilers, so all I’ll say is that while we as traders certainly need to strive for the best and hold ourselves accountable, […]

STR 192: Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

This is one of my all time favorite episodes. I don’t want to offer up spoilers, so all I’ll say is that if you ever find yourself feeling sorry for yourself or letting the victim card mentality “sneak in”, remember our guest, “Zee”. Zee is a member of the chatroom and someone I had the […]

STR 191: The More He Learned, The More He Realized

This episode brings us a great talk with community member Anthony. While he’s not completely new, he is still on the journey. His original idea was to use trading as supplemental income but realized that there is a lot more potential there. As Anthony kept learning more about the markets he realized that he had […]
