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 204: Lighting the Victim Card on Fire.

I love when people acknowledge they have victim cards and decide to light them up in flames. In my mind at least, there is nothing more motivational than when someone kicks excuses in the face and focuses on solutions rather than perceived problems. In this episode we talk with fellow community member Tomasz ,who lives […]

STR 203: A Young Trader Learning to Focus on Swing Trading

This was a pretty unique episode I thought. First off, let me say I love talking with the younger people out there as it sets a great example of why age should not be an excuse as to why or why not you are doing something. When it comes to the markets in particular, the […]

STR 202: Doing Whatever It Takes. (part 2)

Take note, this is a Part 2 episode, so for the best listening experience, listen to episode 201 first. Assuming you have listened to episode 201, then you already know our guest, Brad (‘Darb24’ in the chatroom) is an absolute beast who will do whatever it takes to get to where he wants to go. […]

STR 201: Doing Whatever It Takes (part 1)

The road to becoming a trader can be a dirty one filled with lots of self-sacrifice and many less than ideal situations. I have nothing against the “smoother” journeys, but there is something a bit more extra motivating when someone has to dig deep in order to get to where they want to go. Our […]

STR 200: Ouch! We Talk Our Biggest Trading Mistakes (& How to Avoid Them)

Wow. We did it! Not only did we hit 200 episodes, but we did it 200 weeks in a row. A special thanks to our community whom I give all the credit to for allowing this feat to be accomplished. Without you and your willingness to share your experiences, there is no way we could […]

STR 199: Just Take the Loss (and a Breath). Welcome Back Rena!

A community favorite of mine is back to update us on her journey. Rena (same name in the chatroom) is someone I admire greatly. I’ve met her in person on multiple occasions and she is someone who we can all learn from given her willingness to talk about anything and everything, particularly the “bad stuff”. […]


As painful as it is to hear: go slow. I’m well aware and had to learn the hard way of what rushing into the markets can lead to, so I would not call you an idiot if that’s where your mind is at; however, just realize, you’re on the wrong path! Our guest, Jose (chatroom […]

STR 197: Getting Good at Being a Loser. Welcome Back Mark!

If you want to succeed, you must lose. While I realize that is a seemingly contradicting statement, it is a critical skill that must be mastered as a trader. Our guest, Mark (‘hyprsnpr’ in the chat room), walks us through his updated journey, particularly in regards to his relationship with losing. He is doing a […]

STR 196: Recognizing When to Tap the Brakes. Welcome Back Nate!

A long time member and friend is back, Nate Wilson. For those of you who are members of the community, he goes by the same name in the chatroom and has been around from almost the beginning. He’s become a personal friend of mine (particularly if you watch the vlogs on the YouTube channel) and […]

STR 195: OptionSellers.com Roasts Its Client Base. Let's Learn!

We are trying something new, so your feedback is certainly welcomed and wanted! In this episode, Chezz and I discuss a recent event that caught fire in the headlines. Perhaps you are aware, but if not, the website OptionSellers.com got extremely careless with their client’s money and ended up creating a massive… we’ll call it… […]
