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 194: Week One: Annihilation. Then What?

We’re back with another classic tale of getting punched in the teeth as a rookie. Thanks to our guest, Blake (those of you in the chat room community will known him as ‘ElkTrout’), and his openness, we are given an insight into the dangers of approaching the market in… unwise….ways. I’ve met Blake in person […]

Don’t Be Too Hard on Yourself. Welcome Back Zep!

Before we hosted this discussion, our guest from the community, “Zep” (same name in chat room), sent us a lengthy email that had me quite nervous. I don’t want to offer up any spoilers, so all I’ll say is that while we as traders certainly need to strive for the best and hold ourselves accountable, […]

STR 192: Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone

This is one of my all time favorite episodes. I don’t want to offer up spoilers, so all I’ll say is that if you ever find yourself feeling sorry for yourself or letting the victim card mentality “sneak in”, remember our guest, “Zee”. Zee is a member of the chatroom and someone I had the […]

STR 191: The More He Learned, The More He Realized

This episode brings us a great talk with community member Anthony. While he’s not completely new, he is still on the journey. His original idea was to use trading as supplemental income but realized that there is a lot more potential there. As Anthony kept learning more about the markets he realized that he had […]

STR 190: $1,000 Gone in 2 Weeks. Then What?

Nothing like watching $1,000 disappear down the toilet with the time span of two weeks. Have you been there? I know I have when I first got started. In many ways, it’s a rite of passage to watch your own money go “poof” when you first start trading. It does not need to be that […]

STR 189: Leaving a Job to Pursue Trading

We cover quite a bit in this discussion with fellow member Keith (same name in the chat room). We once again see that “free” is not actually free when it comes to YouTube videos and also how strategy hopping works and the hinderances it can create. The overarching point of context here is that Keith […]

STR 188: Get Good at the Basic

One of the great things about the market is the lack of age requirements. If you have a passion and want to embark on the challenge, then let’s go!, it’s open to everyone. In this episode, we sit down with Adam (chatroom alias “EwokAvenger”) who is still in college. I first started back in college […]

STR 187: Learning to Think Different

My world was unexpectedly turned upside down with this discussion. I’ll admit, at times my views can be quite rigid; however, hearing this person’s story has shown me I maybe need a different approach at times. With all that being said, the pathway and moral-of-the-story was once again the same (and yet another data point): […]

STR 186: A 73% LOSS Wake-Up

It’s different for everyone, but many times, the wake-up call in regards to, “Hey, slow down!” comes in the form of a nasty account fire. Thanks to some very honest candor on this episode’s guest, Josh, we all get to see (or reminded of) how dangerous the markets can be when approaching them without an […]

STR 185: Nailing Down a Viable Strategy. Welcome back SuperDave!

In this episode we welcome back long time community member Dave (alias in chatroom, “SuperDave”). Like some trader’s goals, Dave wants to eventually quit his full time job so we can work from home and be his own boss as a full time trader. While Dave has not yet accomplished the goal, he is well […]
