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.

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 […]

STR 091: He Said "No Thanks" to Options and "Yes Please" to Forex

I really enjoyed this interview because it was a change of pace (in a good way). We’ve had many guests who rant and rave about the power of options, which is true for sure, however our guest (minor spoiler) was not a huge fan and chose another trading opportunity: Forex (the trading of currencies). Chezz […]

STR 090: Saving Up $1,000 and then Some Major Luck

When it comes to just flat out being lucky, in the history of the podcast, I think we have a new winner! To give credit where credit is due, our community member, Josh, worked hard and saved up $1,000. So it is not a situation where he just lucked out in regards to having money, […]

STR 089: Going International Again! Off to Germany to Talk Trading!

The concept is nothing new. For you longer time listeners, you’ve heard it time and time again… not to mention, you’ve probably done it yourself: make mistakes. Our guest, Thomas (alias in the chat room is “thwidra”), did exactly that, but he provides an excellent example of how traders need to blame themselves, not others, […]

STR 088: Letting Confidence Turn Into Stubbornness

Confidence is a great thing to have in the world of trading the markets, there is no doubt about it. With that being said, if you allow the confidence to transition into stubbornness, your trading capital is going to get smaller in size. Our guest, Tony (“TonyAcaiBowls” in the chat room), walks us through his […]
