The 3 Best Trading Podcasts
What Are The Best Trading Podcasts?
If you’re anything like me then you’re obsessed with trading.
Well, I’m happy to add another category of trading resources to your list, and that is: the best trading podcasts!
There aren’t many trading podcasts around (at least not many of exceptional quality), but I have happened across three trading podcast sources that I listen to regularly and have found a lot of value from as a forex trader.
So without further ado, here is the list.
1. Chat With Traders
Number one is Chat With Traders by Aaron Fifield.
This podcast has rapidly grown to become arguably the most influential trading podcast on the planet. This is the modern-day equivalent of the Market Wizards series.
Instead of reading about the experiences and exploits of famous and significantly successful traders, now we get to listen to the interviews directly.
Aaron has an eclectic variety of traders on the podcast ranging from high-frequency algo programmers to discretionary click-traders from both the retail and proprietary trading realms.
He has interviews with bankers, ex-criminals such as Turney Duff and Michael Kimelman, brokers, trading psychologists such as Brett Steenbarger, hedge fund managers, prop firm founders, and world-class trading legends such as Steve Burns, Adam Grimes, Nick Radge, Mike Bellafiore, Jack Schwager, Peter Brandt, Blair Hull, John Moulton and Kevin Muir.
If you’re serious about understanding everything you can about trading the markets and you’re into podcasts, then this one is definitely for you.
2. The Trading Coach Podcast
Number two is The Trading Coach Podcast by Akil Stokes.
Akil is a full-time forex trader and trading coach who mentors new and struggling retail traders along the path to success in the markets.
He has experience trading and investing in stocks but his expertise lies in forex trading. The podcast is full of incredibly valuable insights into the business of trading and what it takes to be successful in the markets.
Akil uses YouTube as the outlet for his charting lessons and trading tips, but on his podcast he prefers to focus on the background elements of success not just in trading, but in life in general.
Perhaps the most valuable lessons that Akil shares on the podcast are not specific to trading at all. He speaks a lot about real estate and investment properties, how to go about starting your own trading business, and how to make more self-empowering decisions in your day-to-day life.
All of this compounds to contribute towards your long-term success as a trader.
Trading is not just about your ability to identify opportunities and execute on them consistently. The ultimate goal is developing your financial and personal freedom and maturity, which requires the cultivation of discipline and adaptable skills across all areas of your life.
Akil’s focus is on psychology, health and fitness, growth mindset, personal finance and all the many other important peripheral elements that go into your success as a trader beyond your technical skills at analysis.
This podcast will help give you a leg-up and a glimpse into the mindset and mentality that it takes to become not just a successful trader, but a successful entrepreneur.
3. Always Free Podcast
Last but not least, there is the brilliant Always Free Podcast by Jason Graystone.
This is a recently-launched podcast created by Akil Stoke’s business partner. Jason and Akil share many of the same principles and perspectives on financial independence and they both see trading as one of many vehicles to get there.
Like Akil, Jason is a huge fan of the growth mindset mentality. He is always encouraging his listeners and followers to make decisions that will result in their long-term success rather than their short-term gratification.
This podcast actually has very little to do with trading itself (Jason has a YouTube channel for that), but similar to the Trading Coach Podcast, it is designed to equip you with all of the skills necessary in order to turn your talent at trading into a long-term business.
Thinking about trading as a business is a great idea, but most traders don’t know what that actually means.
In this podcast Jason sheds light on the specific strategies and systems he used in order to claw his way out of a typical middle-class rut and become truly free and financially independent through multiple means – including trading.
The best thing about Jason is not only does he talk the talk, but he walks the walk too. That is rare in the financial world. He strives to embody all of the values he advocates for in this podcast. And he’s a great trader.
If you want to emulate his success and become not just a great trader, but a great businessman and entrepreneur and grow significant net worth over the long-term, then Jason’s podcast will help shine some light on what it takes to get there.
