It has become a tradition to share the top episodes of the Desire To Trade Podcast each year. In case you didn't know, the Desire To Trade Podcast is a Forex trading podcast I started in 2015.
Back when I started interviewing successful traders 2.5 years ago, I had no idea I'd be able to record that many episodes.
Yet, as this post is published, the Desire To Trade Podcast counts 124 interviews with episodes highly successful traders.
In the compilation of this top 5 trading podcast episodes, I have followed a simple rule: picking the episodes that have been downloaded the most this year.
I am aware that this method isn't flawless. The most downloaded podcasts aren't always the ones that impacted me the most, but they sure were popular among Desire To Trade Nation (which you're part of if you are reading this post!)
Ready? Let's get started!
Top 5 Trading Podcast Episodes Of 2017
#1: The Best Insights On Trading Price Action – Al Brooks
I am very happy to see that Al Brooks' episode lands #1 in 2017, but also overall. This has been the most downloaded episode ever! Al shared some in-depth statistics on price action in the market and explained why price action is key to successful trading.
#2: Trading The Daily Chart & Building Multiple Streams Of Income – Siam Kidd
Siam Kidd is a very talented Forex trader who isn't limiting his skills to Forex trading. He also owns multiple businesses that generate more than one streams of income. That has been an absolute inspiration to me and this podcast episode sets very realistic expectations.
#3: Are You Looking To Trade For Profit Or For Action? – Rob Booker
Rob Booker is a trader I have waited a long time to interview, but it was totally worth it. Rob shifted his trading from manual to algorithmic over time. He is relying on robots to enter & exit his trades. That is a perfect story of adaptability and a great lesson on focusing on what's important instead of what has always been done.
#4: The 3 Pillars of Your Success in Trading – Mandi Pour Rafsendjani
Mandi Pour Rafsendjani shared with me some amazing insights on the psychology that makes great traders. As a coach who worked with some extremely successful traders, Mandi has seen all types of issues preventing traders to achieve their full potential. She understands how success works and how traders can use their personalities for great achievements.
#5: The Universal Principles Of Successful Trading – Brent Penfold
Brent Penfold is the trader that forced me to become more mechanical in my trading 🙂
He had really great advice on accepting losses and, most importantly, doing the required work to succeed in trading. His book The Universal Principles Of Successful Trading remains one of the best trading books I've read since I started trading.
Now it's your turn
I suggest you re-listen to those episodes one more time. Remember that repetition is a major key to mastery. In addition, feel free to let me know your thoughts on the best podcast episode from 2017. That way, I'll be able to create even better content in 2018 and forward!
