The Booker Report with Rob Booker

What happens when you reduce your trade size? Is trading options too dangerous for most investors? Why do some people have more success in trading when they just start out, but then everything falls apart?

Today's episode is the first that aired on business talk radio in the United States.

Aaron Fifield interviews: @HaimBodek

There’s a very special guest on the podcast this week, who I’m excited to introduce…

His name is Haim Bodek, although some refer to him as ‘The Algo Arms Dealer’ (and I totally understand why).

Haim began his trading career at Hull Trading, a prestigious firm well known for driving forward innovation in the domain of automated trading. Following Hull, Haim then went into significant roles at Goldman Sachs, and UBS – which are all discussed during the interview.

But to further set the scene, in 2007 Haim founded Trading Machines, a high frequency trading operation. At the peak, Trading Machines accounted for 0.5% of all options trading volume, with a team of 25 (one of who, was Bryan Wiener of EP 040).

Aaron Fifield interviews: Linda Raschke

This week on the show I interviewed Linda Raschke – an active trader since 1981, when she started out on the floor of the Pacific Coast Stock Exchange as an options market maker.

In 1992, Jack Schwager interviewed Linda for his second installment of the Market Wizard series; The New Market Wizards.

Since then, Linda has traded for several hedge funds, and in 2002 she began one of her own – which has been ranked 17th out of 4,500 hedge funds for ‘Best 5 Year Performance’ by BarclaysHedge.
