  • This is a clip from my chat with trader Kenny Glick.

    Kenny started out as a stand-up comedian in New York. Then, when a life of being broke day in day out became no laughing matter, he gave Wall Street a shot - as a broker. That was fun, to a point, but for him the punchline surely lay in playing the role of a trader, not a broker. So he started out on his own.

    The path to consistent – and by the sound of things – very lucrative profits was brutal, but he ploughed on through, losing lumps along the way, till he fashioned his own scalping strategy using the VWAP, or volume weighted average price indicator.

    Today he styles himself as The Warlock, lead of has a the VWAPians (his students) and runs his own mentorship programme with a couple of trading buddies. This is a really lively episode peppered with plenty of sharp and witty insights. Listen to the full episode - #55.

  • From stand-up comedian to broker to professional trader – that’s been the career path of my next guest, Kenny Glick.

    As it happens, Kenny still does a stand-up routine, it’s just that he does it from his home office and for the benefit of his trading students, or VWAPians, as he calls them.

    The first time I came across Kenny talking on one of his live shows giving a demonstration of how he uses the volume waited price average indicator, I had a stupid grin on my face for the duration. But he’s no joke when it comes to getting results. So, stick around. This is a fun episode.

    Looking for a way of making passive income by taking a stake in the crypto space that doesn’t require you to trade crypto.?

    Check out Yieldnodes. These guys provide cutting edge services to the blockchain network, such as maintaining e-wallets and the like.

    It’s easy to get set up on the platform, and the returns are truly exceptional, averaging around 10% per month. Once you factor in compounding you could be looking at just north of 200% per annum. Here’s another thing I think is really important: Yieldnodes have allowed members to audit their incomings and outgoings and found them to be entirely transparent.

    I personally think this is an exciting proposition and, if you sign up through my link, instead of the usual minimum deposit of 500 Euros, you can make a start with just 50 Euros. Heck, some people put that on the lottery every weekend! So why not plant a seed today with Yieldnodes and see what grows from there?

  • Not so long ago, I had on the show a trader who trades nothing but US dollar pound. My guest today trades USDCAD, or the Loonie, pretty much exclusively. Garrett Hollander started his career in marketing, got into trading as a sideline, and after the usual baptism by fire, with a little help from his mentor, managed to work out a way to trade his "favourite soap opera", as he calls it, to make consistent gains.

    SurgeTrader, LLC is a US-based proprietary trading — or prop trading — firm, with a mission to accelerate trader funding and provide capital to profitable traders. Once traders have proven they can be profitable by passing an Audition, they become a part of the SurgeTrader funded trader community, with access to an account funded with up to $1 million.

  • I realise it’s quite possible you’ve had a lousy week. Trading is a tough game, right? Well, here’s a thought: have you tried it without the use of your arms with a pen in your mouth? And no, I’m not being facetious.

    My next guest is without question the most extraordinary person I’ve had on the show so far. Hers is so much more than just another trading success story, this is one of those human success stories favoured by documentary filmmakers. In her early twenties she lost her job due to a debilitating neurological disorder that deprived her of the use of her arms. This kind of a setback would be enough to floor most of us. But not Louise Bedford.

    Having learned to trade as a teenager, she threw herself into trading full time – trading with a pen in her mouth. Today she’s a successful trader, a highly regarded mentor and keynote speaker. If ever you needed some inspiration as a trader after a bad week, or indeed a good week, listen to this.

    With a background as an analyst at Bloomberg for several years, it’s hardly surprising Serge has an extensive knowledge of the markets and always trades with a well structured plan for growth that includes hedging strategies designed to withstand even the most brutal corrections.

    Besides trading she’s an actress and script supervisor. I can imagine her soon adding life coach to the list of careers she’s been chasing down. I found her passion and her sense of fun instantly infectious, even liberating.

  • in Episode 48 I get together with trader Michael Filighera.

    We talk about good and bad habits in trading, how he uses the Elliot Wave to map out highly probably scenarios and prepare himself for dramatic shifts in market sentiment.

    You get the feeling listening to Michael, he really doesn't need the money anymore - although, as he would say, "that's always nice" - but he does get a lot of pleasure helping new or struggling traders turn their game around.

  • For Episode 47 of A Trader's Life I got together with Chris, aka the Canadian Futures Trader. Chris trades treasuries; in fact, more accurately, he scalps treasuries.

    He’s only been trading just over 18 months, but has already decided this is the kind of trading he’s best suited to. Treasuries might move like snails but the profit they yield with each little tick is considerably more than what you’d find on the indices. I was curious to find out more.

  • Why are there so few women traders compared to men? Well, women are more sensible you might reply. Trading is a high-risk game, so most women steer clear of it, that’s another reply. Some women, though, are perhaps born to trade, as is the case with my next guest Karen Foo.

    Karen’s parents are traders and investors, so for Karen growing up in Singapore trading seemed a logical choice for a career. She begun trading at university, where she excelled in trading contests and after a few short years became an inspiration to many young women interested in giving trading a go. Karen Foo.
