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 114: Moving Across the Country to Be a Future's Broker. That's Only the Start... (Part 1)

I had the pleasure of meeting our guest at our Nashville meet-and-greet and after talking to him there, I knew he needed to be a guest. I guess I’ll pat myself on the back a bit and proclaim that I made a wise choice. Our guest, “tfletch” as he is well known by in the […]


One of the more common problems have as newer traders is shiny objects. You hear about one thing in the market, so you focus on that. Then you hear about something else, and before you know it, you are off focusing on that. While there is certainly nothing wrong with having multiple tools in your […]


There is a unique twist to this week’s interview, and I’m a huge fan of it! Based on the feedback we’ve received from you as listeners, whenever we touch on the topic of personal finance, people get value from it. This is exactly what we’re going to do by bringing back former guest Pendar (same […]

STR 111: Bringing Back Etan. Let's Update His Journey!

It’s been a while since we’ve last spoken with community member “Etan” (alias in chat room), but there is quite a bit to report from our last conversation. Our previous interview had Etan with his ax to the grindstone paper-trading and fine tuning a trading strategy; however, as you’ll hear, life got in the way […]

STR 110: The Process of Narrowing Down a Strategy.

When it comes to Mom’s, our guest Rena (“RenaB” in the chat room), is no slouch. Not only did she introduce her son to the stock market and trading, but she has instilled in him extremely valuable principles that will last a lifetime… and that’s just the surface of the interview! Rena has been in […]

STR 109: Bringing Back H00ch! He Just Keeps on Learning.

This trader is no stranger to the podcast, but he’s a great trader so why not talk to him again and see where he currently stands in his trading journey? For you members of the community, Dave (or “h00ch” as he is known by in the chat room) is someone who has essentially been around […]


For you longer time listeners, you know nothing gets Chezz or myself fired up more than someone who “takes action” and offers no excuses… particularly when it comes to finding money to use to trade. Our guest from the chat room, Brandon (alias in room “bfaust25”), shares a journey filled with many ups and downs. […]

STR 107: Our First Ever VIDEO Podcast with Nate Wilson!

We’ve decided to push the bounds of the podcast a bit and try something new… a VIDEO interview. I would not call it flawless, but the early feedback for those that attended it live was still positive. As weird as it may sounds, I’ve become good enough friends with a member from our community, Nate […]


I learned a new phrase in this interview, greedy goblin. Yes, without question that sounds pretty rough, but as you hear our guest from the community, Caemeron, explain, it is actually a characteristic that all of us as traders should have. Having a passion and enjoying the challenge of seeing numbers add up, like a […]

STR 105: The Solution in Feeling Unsure - Go to Cash!

While some may call the over-arching theme of this interview “common sense”, the problem with that is common sense isn’t very common anymore. Our guest from the community, Jody, approached the market in a very strategic, yet simple way. Again, some may say “duh!”, but it is also one of those things that in many […]
