    Why is he copping flak? Just people trying to pry his system from him?

    My guess is probably pissed off vendors by calling sh*t out. Seen it happen before on twitter. Trading related stuff is mostly a sad industry of crooks.

    He chose to do the interview though and ultimately that's on him.

    Aaron,

    Loving the podcast.

    I've started from the very start and it will take me months to catch up to the latest episode but at this stage I'm really enjoying it. I listen to them as I drive to work and it reminds me what I should be doing with my life instead of what i am doing.

    I'm (trying) to be more short term based and I thought the St Lucci guys (ep's 8 & 9 I think) were incredible. They are straight talking and provide plenty of insight.

    I have been listening to the podcasts of Mr Aaron Fifield. Impressive young man. He sounds wiser than me even though I'm older.

    I wonder how is his own trading going today. I would certainly like to hear about it.

    Which are the favourite episodes members of this forum like?

    I like the one from Jack Schwager who is the famed author of Market Wizards series.

    Have listened to many of these talk sessions and didn't find the information I sought as no trade star is going to give away too much. Like they talk a lot without saying much. This talk session has a learning curve approach which makes all sense to me.

    Consistency -> Sizing -> Breath (edge expression) -> Sophistication (in how you express ideas).

    He sounds like an excellent performance coach encouraging his money makers (traders) to hit that higher net profit.

    Yeh he does sound like a good performance coach, and I'd bet my bottom dollar it's his positivity and encouragement which is the big factor in helping his staff succeed. It's easy enough to find and edge, after all. ANyone can do that.

    There are clues in the recording that he likes to make things sound more complicated than they really are. This desire to make things sound complicated is probably one of the most pervasive and crap aspects of forums/education.

    I watched most of his podcasts and remember one were he said he has or was quitting trading because he was unable to become profitable. My thought was too much put into the podcasts instead of trading.

    I'm a fan of the podcasts. Some of them are average but I think that's more just my own fundamental disagreement with the trader he interviewed. The majority of his podcasts are good! I play them while driving. Some are real good for ideas too.

    Aaron really has provided a wonderful legacy for budding traders. I didn't realise he'd given up on trading. Seem to recall there was a period he worked with a prop firm as an advisor or risk manager.

    Interesting comment about so much effort into the podcast may not have been helping Aaron on his trading journey. Another podcast I quickly exhausted recently was "The Trading Story Podcast" - the host Brandon Clay eventually came to similar conclusion re trading and moved off to real estate investing.

    Damn - I've done it again - brought up someone else's podcast when supposed to be thanking Aaron for all his hard yakka! Thanks Aaron if you pass this way again - love your work, and so happy to see you're still going strong in 2020 and well on the way to 200 episodes. What an effort......

    Really enjoying episode 183 at the moment. Hadn't heard the story of Jim Simons and Rennaisance. Love this quote from Gregory Zuckerman that wrote the book on Simons:

    In truth, there likely are fewer inefficiencies and opportunities for investors than generally presumed. For all the unique data, computer firepower, special talent, and trading and risk-management expertise Renaissance has gathered, the firm only profits on barely more than 50 percent of its trades, a sign of how challenging it is to try to beat the market—and how foolish it is for most investors to try.
