#12- With the legendary trader Mr. Jason Shapiro- 'The Contrarian' from Jack Schwager's book 'Unknown Market Wizards'

Learn from Traders

The lesser I speak about this episode and our guest, the better it will be for you as a listener and a learner. I want you to listen to this episode and dive deep into our conversation and then learn. Everything that Mr. Shapiro talks about in this episode is from his goldmine of lessons that he has accumulated over the course of 30 years of trading. He starts with talking about his early days, and as the conversation progresses, we discuss how trading according to his real personality and beliefs is something that worked for him in the markets. It gave him the name 'The Contrarian' as Mr. Shapiro likes to bet against the market sentiment and follow a contrarian approach. To develop the ability to follow such an approach, a person has to be true to themselves. That is something I picked up Mr. Shapiro from the moment we started talking. He is a true contrarian by nature, but more importantly, he is raw, real, honest and simple. His trading approach is similar. He does not care about the world or what people think of him. He just follows his strategy with discipline, self-belief and patience. Without giving too much information here, I want to confess that this episode is amazing, for the lack of a better word. Mr. Shapiro has a lot to teach every one. Try to make sense of the simple pieces of advice, or rather the pearls of wisdom that he has to offer, and see how much this person can change you for good. If nothing, he will surely help you become more honest with yourself. To know more about Mr. Jason Shapiro and the helpful work he and his team are doing at their organization 'Crowded Market Report', do check out their website- 'https://www.crowdedmarketreport.com/'. The community at CMR and the membership programs are a good place to learn from and improve as a trader. Your feedback is always welcome and will help me improve.

Ep 88 - Jason Shapiro, Founder of Los Feliz Daycare, is Here to Help!

This Might Help with Matt Braunger

Jason Shapiro is a comedy writer/performer who struck gold with a parody account of a fake day care in the hipster-affluent neighborhood of Los Feliz (Editor’s note: I live there lol). Google “Los Feliz Day Care” right now and find his twitter and Instagram account for it. Glorious, very funny, and dead on. As he told me in this episode, the idea came when he was a writer’s assistant. He learned that one of the writers, whose child went to a day care in LF, got a LETTER FOR SENDING THEIR CHILD WITH WHITE BREAD IN THEIR LUNCH. THEIR LUNCH! NOT ONE FOR THE OTHER PARENTS’ KIDS! Lololololol. He took the idea and ran with it, and it’s been going strong since 2014. A new father himself, the account has taken on a new meaning as he navigates parenthood in Los Angeles. It was fun getting to know him on TMH. And, as a special bonus, he came on the show as the founder of LFDC, dreadlock wig and all! He answered the calls both as himself and as his character. This episode is a gas. Listen, enjoy, and tell your friends!

Jason Shapiro - on his new book, overcoming tragedy, and healing

Adventures in Self-Publishing

Hello, I hope you're safe, healthy, and staying positive. For all the dads out there, I also hope you had an incredible Father’s Day. Mine was one that I will never forget. I had the opportunity to announce the publication of my latest book Lunch with Larry - A second chance to say goodbye. This is a story about meeting my dad for one last lunch. Let me explain: Some might be aware that my father passed away from injuries sustained in a car accident on March 11th 2013. He was less than a mile away from his home. I visited with him the day before the accident, so the shock and disbelief I experienced haunts me to this day. For years the regret of never having the opportunity to say goodbye, has been difficult to live with. Since heaven doesn’t have a phone, I decided to write what it may be like if I was to meet my dad for one final lunch. The story is set at his favorite diner in New York City. This encounter ends up being anything, but an ordinary lunch. While at the diner, a friendship is struck between myself and my waitress. This character was inspired by a wonderful woman I worked with years ago, by the name of Kathy. Tragically, Kathy passed away from a rare type of Breast Cancer at the age of 43. I have decided to donate 100% of the profits from this book to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in memory of Kathy, for the next month. Please take a moment to view the book trailer. If you would like to grab a copy (or two) of Lunch with Larry, I have included the amazon link below.

#72 Jason Shapiro – Through Trader Hell and Back, to Market Wizard

The AlphaMind Podcast

30 years of trading success brought Jason Shapiro to the attention of Jack Schwager, who was looking for new interview subjects for the latest instalment of his brilliant series of Market Wizards books ‘Unknown Market Wizard’. Shapiro’s chapter in the book is called ‘The Contrarian’, which tells you pretty much all you need to know about his approach and style. In this episode, Jason opens up with about his trading approach, his contrarian philosophy and a whole host of topics around the trading process which listeners will find fascinating. Jason talks passionately about trading and his work. Some of the themes Jason talks about include: Why he is a contrarian. How being a contrarian is not the same as being countertrend. Finding your edge. The importance of getting the process right. Being objective in your views. How market’s discount the news. Using the Commitment of Trader’s report. And a host of themes which will inspire and fascinate the listener.Jason really opens up with great honesty about the realities of trading, of how he has been to hell and back more than once, the pain of losing, the learning experiences of becoming successful then losing it all, the journey and path to better process and practice, of how trading success is ‘the long game’.This is one of those interviews which is full of nuggets and lessons from beginning to end. Do not switch this episode off early, because it just gets hotter is it goes along. Jason also talks about the Crowded Market Report, a Futures trading education website which focuses on and supports traders in developing a unique contrarian approach. Also full kudos to the Crowded Market Report, who donate a portion of their proceeds to the Charlestown Early Learning Center, a non-profit organization, to provide a high quality, affordable educational program for 3, 4, and 5 year old children in the local community. You can learn more Jason at the Crowded Market report here: https://www.crowdedmarketreport.com/about/You can follow them on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/Crowded_Mkt_RptAnd connect with them on Linkedin here: https://www.linkedin.com/company/cmr-publishing/
