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 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 […]


There is a common theme among our community that follows the mind-set that “there are no excuses”. I’m happy to report that we, once again, have another data point that proves this mindset is not unrealistic or impossible to put into action in real life. Our guest, Mike, was on a very… very… nice path, […]

STR 103: Shawn's Back! Staying in Tune with Your Emotions

For you long time listeners of the show, Shawn is well known “as that lady who took $250 and turned it into over $10,000”. If you are a member of the private chat room community, then I’m sure you’ve seen Shawn or perhaps even interacted with her. Well, she’s back for another interview so that […]

STR 102: He Works Alongside Traders in a Unique Way

One of the coolest things about hosting the podcast is hearing the career fields people are in. I’m not sure we’ve ever had one as interesting as our guest, Justin, (alias in chat room “JustinT”) who works alongside traders where he tells them what to buy/sell. Because of this interesting career field, Justin has quite […]

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 […]
