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 101: Doubling a $100,000 Account - and THEN Getting Serious

This episode holds a special place in my heart as our guest, Louis, from the chatroom was quite the customer service challenge. He was about as hard headed as it got when it came to him actually deciding to come aboard, but I’m glad he did. He’s one of those traders who even after making […]

STR 100: We Did It! Episode 100!

Every single Monday for 100 weeks straight, we’ve put out a brand new episode… I would be a total liar if I said I thought that would happen when Chezz and I first began our podcast journey. Sure, I planned it would have success, but literally 100 weeks straight of new episodes? No way! With […]

STR 099: Diving In and "Learning-As-You-Go". How'd that Work?

If you’re newer to the markets and your plan of action is “learning as I go”, then all I ask is that you please listen to our guest, Mike (‘HeyFordy’ alias in chat room), who took the same path. What I like about Mike is that he’s from the Northeast, so he’s got that accent […]


The financial services industry. One that has more than likely touched all of us in one way or another. For many people, the “touch” comes from the fact they sit down with a “financial adviser” for advise them on how to grow their money. But is their advice really in your best interest? We talk […]


Talk about a crazy start to your journey. You get a mentor and then all of a sudden he’s in JAIL! Uh… yikes! Talk about a great way to become jaded towards the trading markets – and understandably so! This is exactly what happened to our fellow member from the community, Chris, as he began […]

STR 096: Getting Punched by Penny Stocks and Finding a New Way

Yup. It has happened yet again. The bright and shiny world of penny stocks and their apparent ability to grow small accounts punched another trader in the face. While the punch to the face knocked down our guest, AlphaThor (his alias in the chat room), it didn’t knock him out. Being the mentally tough guy […]


For someone like myself who got started in trading after the introduction of the internet and computers, it’s hard to imagine what it “used to be like” before technology really came to age. We get a great taste of that in our interview with Mike (chat room alias “TraderMike”). His journey first began back in […]

STR 094: The First Step in Building Wealth

Being wealthy is something we all dream of. I say this with complete confidence because I define “wealthy” a much different way than many may. To be honest though, even if you want to be wealthy in the sense of driving a Rolls Royce, there are some initial steps that you must take in order […]

STR 093: Developing One's Self to Develop as a Trader

We’ve done many interviews at this point in our podcasting journey, but thinking off the top of my head, I can only think of one other person who is taking the approach Ward (our guest and chat room member) is using. According to Ward’s logic, which makes perfect sense to me, he is first focusing […]


If there is one personality trait that is a “must have” for long term trading success, I think I’d choose: self awareness. If you are not being honest with yourself and admitting what needs to be admitted, you will spin your wheels in the mud and never improve. Chat room member, Eric, is a shining […]
