Rank #7: 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.
Rank #8: 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.

Rank #13: 74 - How to Find the Right Market To Trade
Trading can be confusing for a new comer. There’s so much to consider when you first start off. All the mechanics of buying and selling, trying to make a million bucks – or just a positive return, understanding what a P/E ratio is, and a host of other unnamed things.
But one of the biggest areas of concerns is just getting started: trying to find the right market to trade. How do you know what market you should target, especially when you’re just starting off.
Defining a Trading “Market”
First off, we should define what a trading market is. What is a trading market?
For our purposes, a trading market is a broad category or financial instruments. Most people become interested in trading because of stocks. Stock trading is a probably the most popular form of trading.
But what are other types of trading?
According to an Investopedia article about the question, these are several major markets to trade for retail traders like us.
- Stock Market (equities)
- ETF Market
- Forex Market
- Options Market
- Contracts for Difference (CFD)
- Physical Assets (gold, silver, etc.)
Rank #14: 19 - Jeff Kennedy's Step-by-Step Elliott Wave Trading

Rank #15: 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.

Rank #19: 66 – The Slight Edge in Trading
When Dominic D, the options trader from episode 21, a fellow trader and one of my mastermind members turned me onto his favorite book, The Slight Edge, it took me about 5 times of him mentioning it before I took notice. But I did take notice and I finally bought the book. According to “Dom”, it’s his single favorite book ever, and he rereads it once a year.
So I finally bought it. As I mentioned before, The Slight Edge is NOT a trading book. It’s a personal development book written by Jeff Olson. It’s one of those books in the ‘success’ niche. The author is responsible for building several multi-million dollar businesses and his book is about his story and his success philosophy. And I’m starting to think Dom is onto something with his recommendation. It’s so good, I thought I’d dedicate this episode of the podcast to the book.
So here goes.
