Rank #6: 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 #8: 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 #13: 72 - Trading & Family: What About the Kids?
You’ve got this side project going on? You want to trade. And you know that trading takes time, especially at first as you’re trying to dig through a bunch of definitions you haven’t heard before and you’re trying to understand things like ‘Shooting Stars’, and trendlines.
You want to make this trading thing work but you don’t want to neglect your family.
- What do you do with your kids when you think you should be studying charts?
- What you do with that guilt when you’re stuck in the office and they’re knocking on the door?
- How do you handle your spouse’s concern or criticism about your latest project?
I’ll be the first to say, I haven’t figured this parenting or marriage thing out completely. We have three children now, one is out of the home and two are in the home: a middle schooler and a elementary student. I love my kids. Though I’ve been doing it for a while, my wife and I still make mistakes along the way. I can confidently say my mistakes are fewer now than they were even 5, 10, or 15 years ago. As in anything, you get better with experience.
Secondly, I’ve put together multiple projects. Trading, to me, is another project. A pretty intense one, but not unlike my first major career shift back in 2006.
So here’s one guy’s opinion as you’re learning how to trade while staying connected with your family.
