Sharks in the Water - Roundtable

1h 18m | Jun 9, 2024

Cleo and Baba Yaga join in this week to explore the topic of boredom in trading and how it can affect decision-making. The hosts discuss the importance of developing a strategy that is easy and relatively boring to trade, as heightened emotions can lead to poor choices. They also touch on the challenges of managing expectations and pressure as a trader. Baba Yaga shares his experience of relearning and finding a balance between excitement and steady decision-making, highlighting the need to acknowledge and set aside external pressures to perform well. Baba reflects on the recent conversation with 2yrflipper who had a clear and confident decision-making process and how that made him realize that he needed to work on his own decision-making and confidence. They also share their thoughts on Roaring Kitty’s recent livestream before sharing some Good/Bad/Ugly moments from the past week and someone makes the boldest prediction yet!

Baba Yaga:

Solving problems, helping set goals, and refining processes is the bulk of Baba's passion. He does that in many contexts ranging from nonprofits to real estate firms and everything in between. He focuses on market structure through the lens of TPO charting and executes based on volume, misplaced large orders, and delta. He loves the opening range breakout and typically trades the market from the “inside out”.
