Aaron Fifield interviews: Peter Brandt

I can promise you right now, this one will not disappoint…

My guest today is the legendary trader, Peter Brandt.

Peter first started trading around 1975 (which I’m sure is before many of you listening were even born – that’s certainly the case for me). So that’s 5 decades involved with markets, i.e. ’70’s, ’80’s, ’90’s… – a very long time!

To give you an idea of Peter’s performance during this time, he has achieved a compounding annual growth rate of approximately 42%, with his best year returning well over 600%. Of course we want to know about his worst years also, well there has only been three of them, which were all drawdowns of less than 8%.

Aaron Fifield interviews: Howard Lindzon

This week I have a very special guest on the show who almost needs no introduction, Howard Lindzon. Who’s best known as the co-founder of StockTwits, but he’s a man who wears many hats, he’s also a trader, investor, hedge fund manager, entrepreneur and a rock-star angel investor.

So as you could imagine, I was thrilled to have Howard on the show this week. We spoke for around 50 minutes, and discussed the early years of his career (from the days of when he used to work in the back office of a brokerage firm).

We also covered Howard’s methodology around trading high growth stocks and the idea of ‘buy high, sell higher’, how innovative technology may revolutionize the landscape of trading over the next 5-10 years. And on top of this, we also talk about some of the angel investments that Howard has been involved with.

The Traders Podcast with Rob Booker

Welcome to The Traders Podcast Episode 490! Your host Rob Booker goes a little bit dark today answering some listener questions. He loves messaging with you, so keep the texts coming. So, when should you quit trading? This isn’t about being a quitter, this is about knowing when you have a problem. If you have a gambling problem then you should quit trading. Another not great trading habit is trading the news. Which came first the move or the news? Rob explains how this is insane to try to pin down. Do you really want a better grasp of the market? Listen in for the big picture. Thanks for listening!

The Traders Podcast with Rob Booker

Hello Traders Podcast listeners! Welcome to Episode 487. Today your host Rob Booker reminds us of the importance of relying on our charts for our trades. Traders sometimes build up the hope that they are going to be able to gain a huge advantage by placing a trade as soon as big economic news breaks. Rob knows this feeling, but he also knows that the trade still has to make sense. Often news stories are incredibly slanted and dramatic, surprised? Sure, it seems like a big economic event, but if there is no real financial shift, it doesn’t really matter. For example, where is Greece in the news now? Does it not matter anymore? Or, is it that it never really did matter? You’ll love today’s show!
