What To Expect in This Episode
JJ and Kim got a TON of great questions in this session. Here are some of the topics they tackle:
- Fear of failure and how it affects traders. Learn how one trader “failed” at Kim’s homework to “fail at 10 things” — but how it prompted him to think about the right adjustments he needed to make in his trading. Often we attach our value to success and winning — that can create its own problems. It’s all about getting comfortable with your own humanity!
- The importance of understanding what moves markets — not just supply and demand, but who and what is driving that supply and demand. As a former market maker, JJ can speak to the other side of the trade.
- Can traders access historical float? It’s not as easy as you might think! JJ has some tricks for figuring it out, though…
- The advice JJ wishes more people would heed: “don’t get starry-eyed about price action.” JJ talks about why people follow price and why it pays to be “a little bit paranoid” in the current market.
- Self-doubt plagues many traders. Both JJ and Kim weigh in on quieting the “bad wolf” in your head.
- The danger of being too early in a trade. Even if you’re right, things could go terribly wrong. In retail trading, it’s not always about getting a jump on the trade!
- Manufacturing a short squeeze — how does it work? Get the dirt from the POV of a former market maker.
