    About Kyle:

    Kyle (along with many others) found themselves increasingly drawn to active trading during the lockdowns. Daily discussions about trades, interests, lessons learned, and occasional setbacks with co-founder Dan laid the foundation for what would become the 2 Bulls in a China Shop and Band of Traders podcasts. Their self-deprecating humor and candid discussions about their trading experiences became the catalyst for a podcast that resonated with a broader audience.

    The podcast not only opened doors to new communities but also became a platform for sharing insights and learning opportunities. For Kyle, it was a revelation — a discovery of true passion in trading, learning, and community building. Kyle's mission with the Band of Traders podcast is rooted in his personal journey. He aims to demystify trading, making it accessible to individuals at all levels of experience. Through educational resources and a thriving Discord community, the Band of Traders podcast empowers traders, fostering an environment where knowledge is shared, insights are exchanged, and a sense of camaraderie thrives.

    About Zen:

    Zen began his trading journey in March 2020, diving into the financial markets during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Initially having little knowledge of investing, he was inspired by a friend's suggestion to capitalize on the market downturn, leading him to experiment with a small investment on Robinhood. His early success with a mortgage REIT sparked a deeper interest in trading.

    Over time, Zen expanded his skills, moving from swing trading small caps to trading options, and eventually found success in scalping shares. In 2023, Zen attempted to trade full-time and did well, especially trading Tesla. However, a few personal mistakes led him to step back and reassess his approach. Currently, he is focused on disciplined trading with a healthier balance, continuing to trade individual stocks and options on a smaller scale.

    About Andrew:

    Andrew is primarily an intra-day futures trader focused on ES and NQ. Coming from a career in creative work and a background in extreme endurance sports, Andrew found markets to be the perfect combination of technical attention to detail and mental resolve.


    At Long Winter Trading Company, we believe that trading is hard.

    That’s what we love about it. Trading is perhaps the most difficult career path a person can take. They must face the unknown each day and do it with their own capital with countless variables at play. We don’t expect trading to come easy. We don’t expect trading to allow you to remain in your current state. We do expect that, when mastered, trading can provide both a lifestyle and knowledge of self that is well beyond the normal person.

    Thoughtful creative expression has a way of changing a person. This site is simply a mechanism for self-change and the pursuit of that which has value.

    About Brian:

    Brian McAboy started trading back in the 1990's and has been helping traders become successful traders since January 2006.  He is a retired Project Engineer, Process Engineer and Quality Engineer.

    During Brian’s first year of trading, he made the common mistake of underestimating what it takes to be a trader and didn’t pay the markets or this occupation the proper respect. As a result, he paid a hefty price of over $45,000, loads of personal capital and nearly lost his marriage over it.

    Fortunately, Brian had the Quality Assurance experience working in manufacturing. When he applied the Quality Assurance methodology to his trading, he found that it works amazingly well, just like it has in the business world for decades to get struggling operations under control and predictably profitable.

    He then also applied his business acumen to further build that solid foundation that nearly all traders don’t get to really give him a solid base and peace of mind. Brian teaches these same success practices and methods to traders so that they can fill the gap in their training as well and enjoy relaxed, profitable trading too.

    Brian’s years of experience Quality Assurance and Business Consulting allow him to provide unique, effective and refreshing resources to the traders of the world. His focus is helping traders achieve self-sufficiency through the application of Quality and Business principles and practices that result in proficiency and success.

  • “Taking Who You Are and Making It More” - Humanity w/ Andrew (AKA Bigfoot)

    Andrew (Formerly known as Bigfoot) joins Kyle and Cleo in the latest Humanity of Trading episode to discuss parts work… What that means and how he has applied it to his own trading. He emphasizes the need to understand and work with different parts of oneself and shares his experience of hiring different “parts”, such as the risk manager and the thrill-seeker, to create a cohesive trading approach. By recognizing and integrating these parts, traders can improve their decision-making and overall performance. Andrew talks through the different states of mind he employs in trading before giving Cleo some insights into her own team based on a worksheet we filled out before the recording. Andrew suggests that Cleo should recognize and embrace her playful and present side in trading, and also utilize her adaptability and improvisational skills when things don't go as planned. Cleo mentions that interruptions and going off the rails are common in her work, and she handles them by validating the situation and finding a way to bring it back on track. Cleo and Kyle share their initial resistance to this approach but acknowledge its potential benefits. They explore the tension between rule-based discipline and improvisation in trading, and how to find a balance between the two. Andrew emphasizes the need to identify moments of completion in trading and transition between different aspects of one's personality. They also discuss the importance of self-reflection, accepting all parts of oneself, and confronting negative self-talk.

    About Andrew:

    Andrew is primarily an intra-day futures trader focused on ES and NQ. Coming from a career in creative work and a background in extreme endurance sports, Andrew found markets to be the perfect combination of technical attention to detail and mental resolve.

    At Long Winter Trading Company, we believe that trading is hard.

    That’s what we love about it. Trading is perhaps the most difficult career path a person can take. They must face the unknown each day and do it with their own capital with countless variables at play. We don’t expect trading to come easy. We don’t expect trading to allow you to remain in your current state. We do expect that, when mastered, trading can provide both a lifestyle and knowledge of self that is well beyond the normal person.

    Thoughtful creative expression has a way of changing a person. This site is simply a mechanism for self-change and the pursuit of that which has value.

  • "Just Don't Quit Before You Figure It Out" - Roundtable

    This week’s roundtable topic comes from Perdue (who unfortunately had some technical issues and couldn’t join in). Fleri and Baba Yaga talk about the importance of perseverance, learning from failures, and having a defined trading process. They also touch on the concepts of decision fatigue, sustainability, and the need to preserve capital. Both emphasize the importance of having clear setups, being able to recognize opportunities, and having the confidence to execute trades. The key takeaways: the need for grit, continuous learning, and the ability to adapt and refine one's trading approach. They also highlight the importance of perseverance and resilience in trading, emphasizing the need to embrace losses and understand that losing is a part of the trading process. Fleri points out the significance of having a well-defined trading strategy and being comfortable with the statistical probabilities of winning and losing. They also mention the role of natural talent in trading and the need to focus on personal progress rather than comparing oneself to others.

  • Using Stats to Improve Confidence - Roundtable

    This week’s roundtable kicks off with Baba Yaga teasing an upcoming live stream with Vico from TPA this upcoming Friday! From there, the panel dives into an in-depth discussion about process reviews and using statistical analysis to refine trading strategies. Along the way, they address the fear that comes with learning a strategy might not be as successful as once thought and the importance of collaboration during data analysis. The hosts talk through their experiences of refining trading strategies through rigorous data analysis, emphasizing the importance of statistical expectancy and confidence in trading setups. They explore key topics like finding the right entry methods, filtering out losing trades, and how market context plays a critical role in trade decisions. In the realm of exit strategies, the conversation underscores the danger of taking profits too soon and the importance of understanding the setup’s EV.

    Group trading dynamics come under the microscope as the Fleri and Baba Yaga discuss the challenges of trading in a community, dealing with different trading styles and timeframes, and avoiding undue influence from others' trades. Despite these challenges, they also highlight the benefits of sharing trading setups and ideas within a supportive community. Kyle then shares a particularly potent Good/Bad/Ugly from the past week and the episode closes with some new bold market predictions.

    Tune in for a lively and insightful discussion that blends practical advice with personal anecdotes. This episode is a must-listen for anyone looking to refine their trading strategies and learn from experienced traders.

  • “Democratizing Debt” - Quincy Issues First U.S. Blockchain Bond - Ft. Eric Mason and Rick Coscia

    Quincy, Massachusetts has issued a blockchain-based municipal bond, the first of its kind in the United States with the goal of democratizing Quincy's investment opportunities and ultimately allowing individuals to invest in their own community. Eric Mason (Quincy CFO) and Rick Coscia (Quincy Strategic Asset Manager) join Kyle to explain why they decided to push forward with this deal, and what they hope to accomplish by embracing Digital Ledger Technology. They also explain the safety and efficiency of listing a bond via blockchain, the advantages of being an early adopter, and the potential for creating a secondary market for trading blockchain-based bonds. To address concerns about cybersecurity and the risks associated with the new technology, Eric and Rick describe the long vetting process and how the city’s financial health was always their top priority. The conversation explores the potential impact of blockchain technology on municipal bond sales and the role of government in embracing new technologies as they explain the benefits of using blockchain for bond sales, such as increased efficiency, cost savings, and improved transparency. They also highlight the importance of regulatory compliance and the need for government to lead the way in adopting innovative solutions. The conversation concludes with a discussion on the post-bond sale analysis and the potential for future adoption of blockchain technology in the municipal bond market.
