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 139: Step Back. Slow Down. Make Decision.

As many of you know, I love me a good analogy, and in this episode we have several of them… the one that really stood out though was in regards to pitching in baseball and trading. Chris is our guest (‘thekidcanrake’ in the chat room) and he shares with us the many important lessons and […]


Before anything else, this is Part 2 of a multi-part interview, so if you want it all to make the most sense, then be sure to listen to episode 137 first. I’ve really enjoyed the feedback so far from Part 1 on the discussion as there have been several opinions and viewpoints that have arisen. […]

STR 137: Here's How the Concept of Risk is Subjective

If you’re a long time listener, then you know the topic of ‘risk’ has come up on…well… more than one occasion. This is once again the case, but with a little bit different of a twist that does an excellent job of illustrating and explain just how risk in and of itself is subjective. Chezz […]

STR 136: Recovering from a Terrible "Guru" Experience

I’m going to do my best not to go off on a rant as I type this up at this very moment. All I’ll say is BE CAREFUL when it comes to those “guru’s” using expensive lifestyles or extraordinary results as the backbone of their marketing. Please. Trust your gut and instincts on it. Thanks […]


The title of this podcast may seem a bit odd, but in all reality, the goal for all traders should be to become bored. In this episode we welcome back Tony from all the way out in Hawaii (so jealous!) so he can update us all on how his journey continues to unfold. He started […]

An Increasing Account, but Humble Attitude. Welcome Back Fordy!

Humility is a great attribute to have as a trader, and our guest is a perfect example of this. We bring back former guest Mike (‘HeyFordy’ in the chat room) to discuss how his journey has continued to unfold since the last time we spoke with him. I don’t want to offer many spoilers, but […]


You can never get too much of the classic fool’s gold syndrome. Most veteran traders have had this syndrome at some point in their journey (myself included), and most newer traders have it right now. The key is, the sooner they realize it is the sooner they can begin to improve away from it. Our […]

STR 132: 1946 is When His Journey Started. Be Prepared to Be Inspired

I’ve talked to 100’s of people on the podcast, and while I’ve enjoyed every single one of those discussions, this is one that will stick with me for a long time. Sure, our guest Ron got on my good side by being a fellow graduate of The Ohio State University; however, where he’s been, where […]

STR 131: Joining Forces with a Penny Stock Company

This interview made me laugh for sure. Not in a mean way, but rather in a “I can relate” type way. Did I ever go as far as our guest? No… he took things to a whole new level when it comes to going down the penny stock rabbit hole. Our guest is community member […]

STR 130: Taking the Mental Game to a Whole New Level! Welcome Back Hamlet!

We’re bringing back a former guest and hearing all about where he stands in his current trading journey. We interviewed Hamlet (“Crusader” in chat room) a little over a year ago and he’s still going strong. I won’t spoil the details, but all I’ll say is that Hamlet (as far as I can remember) takes […]
