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 175: A 23 Year Old Excuse Killer

We have ourselves a shining example of why it is ignorant to make blanket statements when it comes to the millennial generation thanks to our guest. Ashton (alias in the chatroom, “bmxashton”) is a young guy doing all the right things. Yes, it can easily be argued that perhaps he is missing out on “things” […]

STR 174: Breaking 20 Years of Mental Conditioning

We have situation that I think many people can relate to if they are honest with themselves. Depending on how you were raised or simply your general understanding of the markets, it can really create a challenging mental situation for yourself when you transition into the world of trading. Our guest, Evans (better known as […]

STR 173: An Infomercial. A Trading Robot. And Reality.

Things all started in a junkyard. From there it was infomercials, trading robots and everything in between. I don’t want to ruin anything with details, but I will say our guest from the Inner Circle community, Trae (“traecampell77” in chat room), is a shining example of passion must be at the forefront of this business […]

STR 172: Police, Broken Doors and Weak Knees with Paddy! (Part 2)

I don’t think I really need to say much other than this is Part 2. If you listened to Part 1 (episode 171), then I’m sure you are ready to go given the cliff hanger we left you at. So with that being said, let’s pick back up with long time community member Paddy in […]

Police, Broken Doors and Weak Knees with Paddy! - Part 1

We bring back a guest who many have said was their all time favorite. He was the first person we ever did a two part episode on, and once again… we have ourselves a two part episode. Our guest, best known as “Paddy” in the trading room community, takes time out of his schedule to […]


Time for some experimenting! We had a guest scheduled who wasn’t able to show up, so given I had a block of time available, I wanted to give something a try. You never know unless you try right? This could be an epic failure, but that’s okay… at least I’ll know! With all that being […]

STR 169: Bouncing Back from an Insane Former Life

We’ve done 168 episodes. I’m pretty sure this is the one that caught me off guard the most. Everything seemed fine and dandy and then our guest dropped a bit of his past life that was… well… quite intense! Johnny (chatroom alias, “johnny5000”) proves to be a massive data point in regards to there being […]

STR 168: Tapping the Brakes to Focus

A blessing in disguise. I think that’s really the best way to summarize this our guest’s journey thus far. When Dave (chatroom alias ‘Daveslow’) first started his journey, he tried to sign up with a text alert service from… well… let me put it this way, a faulty source. There were a few technical glitches […]

STR 167: Delivering Pizzas to Kill Excuses. Welcome Back David!

Notes: Today we revisit with community member David K who we interviewed a few years ago. We find out he’s about to graduate college shortly. While he started as strictly an investor, David has been working on trading since he was 17 years old. After a frustrating bout with trading, David took some time off […]

STR 166: The Financial Freedom Account. Do You Have One? (Part 2)

Make sure to listen to Episode 165 before proceeding any further. This interview is Part 2, so with that being said and out of the way, let’s continue! In the first part of the interview from last week, we heard all about Brian and the actions he put into motion to “get er’ done”, but […]
