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 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 […]

STR 184: It All Started with Grandpa

The sooner we teach/show/demonstrate to kids and teenagers the various aspects of money, the quicker we are setting them up for longer term success. We have an awesome example of that thanks to a Grandpa leading by example. Our guest, Kainoa (same alias in chat room), had great parenting which jumpstarted his financial journey and […]

STR 183: Learning to Lose Comfortably.

There is no avoiding it. As annoying and frustrating as it is, being wrong and having losing ideas is all part of trading the markets. Fellow chat room member Murray (alias in the trading room, “murman”) tells us all about how he has learned to become comfortable with being wrong. We go down many other […]

STR 182: The Punisher Part 2

This is Part 2. Be sure to listen to episode 181 in order to hear Mike’s entire journey. Mike (chat room alias, “afroge”) and I pick back up our discussion with a deeper look into his actual trading strategy. Although I am not someone who uses a whole lot of fundamental analysis myself, it was […]

STR 181: The Punisher - Part 1

The sheer bluntness displayed in this interview I found completely refreshing and… well… honest. There is no need to sugarcoat or beat around the bush when it comes to how the market actually works. Bottom line, if you show up to trade and are underprepared, there are people out there who will take advantage of […]


It all started with betting on sports. From that point forward, the pieces fell into place that allowed for a transition into the stock market and trading. Our guest, Burak (same name in the chat room) walks us through his journey of transitioning from sports to trading. The one benefit Burak had in his favor […]

STR 179: A Trader With Great Self Awareness

I still can’t quite put my finger on it, but the way self-awareness as a person and trader was presented and explained truly intrigued me. Our guest, Wojtek (chatroom alias ‘Surlymac’), started out with dollar signs in his eyes and wanting the good life. As he will explain, in very self-aware fashion, this lead him […]

STR 178: A Young Guy Making His Way in the Markets

It’s always great to have younger people on the show as it demonstrates how the markets are for all ages, no matter your experience level in this thing we call life. Our guest, Matt (his chat room alias, “dewolf”), walks us through his journey thus far into the markets. Matt’s journey is one I feel […]


What does it look like to go about becoming a full time trader the right way? Thanks to our guest, Geoff (chat room alias, ‘CrestronWizard’), we are given a perfect example of how to wisely make this transition. Here’s a minor spoiler: Geoff did not wake up one morning and randomly decide he wanted to […]

STR 176: The Problem with Having Ambition. Welcome Back Charlie!

There is nothing worst then someone who agrees with every little thing you say in every little way possible. I’m thankful to say this is not the case in our discussion with longtime member Charlie (same name in the chatroom). I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie at our Denver meet-and-greet and I can say […]
