34 – A Beginner’s Guide to Options Trading

Options trading one of those less popular forms of trading. Compared to stocks, forex, and even futures, options seem to be the ‘lesser-loved’ financial instruments  for most traders. But it does not mean there’s not money to be made there. By no means! I have some experience paper trading some stock options. I even went through an extensive options trading class, so I know something about it. For those of you who are interested in options, I thought it would be good to provide a brief overview.

84 - Six Reasons to Swing Trade Stocks in 2016

On Monday, we introduced our podcast’s first sponsor, K Capital Advisors. If you haven’t heard Kyle Fisher’s interview on Monday, you probably should. This episode is a follow-up to Kyle’s trading methodology. But even if you don’t hear Kyle’s interview, you should get some value out of this episode. Kyle’s approach to the stock market is swing trading. And it perfectly aligns with the target audience of the Trading Story podcast audience. Our audience is smart, they believe in the dream of trading, and have some time (though not enough to join a full-on mentoring program yet) to devote to learning more about the markets. I believe swing trading is the perfect vehicle to step further into the world of trading. So without further ado, here are 6 reasons you should swing trade stocks in 2016. 1. Investing 2.02. Method trades the most popular market – stock market.3. Learn to trade stocks by doing.4. Doesn’t take much time (using a picking service).5. To understand first-hand why professionals use stops.6. Great for someone with a full-time job with little time to trade.

106 - The One Thing in Trading

Hope things are going well and progressing with you guys on the trading side. This week, I took 3 positions: all net losers. I had a deadline on another project so I didn’t spend as much time as I would like. Such is life. But one thing I did was grab another book that I recommend. It’s not a trading book, per se. It’s more of a business success book that has plenty of application for those of us learning to trade. I’m about half-way through the book now to be up front. It’s a short read – 224 pages, but easy reading. I’ll finish the book by the time this podcast is released. But what I have picked up so far has been pretty good. The book is called The One Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan. I heard an interview with Jay Papasan a few months back plugging the book. What piqued my interest was the simplicity behind the concept. I like simple. Jay and Gary both also live in my hometown, Austin, Texas. So being the late-adopter that I am, I finally picked up the book. It was written in 2012 and I’m podcasting in 2016. So do the math, I’m late to The One Thing party.
