It’s time for some spring cleaning at SteadyTrade! There are a variety of topics we’ve been meaning to address, and today’s the day we’re getting to them.

In this week’s episode, hosts Tim Bohen and Stephen Johnson tackle a grab bag of topics:

  • What’s going on in the market and with STT
  • Stephen’s latest trading epiphanies and updates
  • A slew of other trading-related topics that haven’t made it into recent episodes but are totally worthy of mention

Trading Tips from Tim and Stephen

A lot of listeners are curious about what’s going on in Stephen’s trading career. Some of you are even sending private messages to Tim on social media to find out!

Let’s end the suspense right here and now: In this episode, Stephen dishes on what’s up in his trading life — losses, successes, struggles, and lessons learned. Tim and Stephen discuss some of Stephen’s recent trades, analyzing what he could have done differently in some cases and how to use that knowledge moving forward.

Listen in to learn invaluable lessons and tips about effective short selling, including what to look for in high-a-days and why waiting for a stock to ‘crack’ can be a smart approach.

Stephen also imparts wisdom about how traders should be keenly aware of dilution. Why? Even if a stock has a float of 10 million, if 5 million shares are diluted, things may not be as hunky dory as they seem.

You’ll also learn key tips on how to refine trading strategies, including Tim’s advice about how to be patient, back up, and take a long view of several stocks at once. Sometimes, if you’re monitoring three to four runners, it can be tempting to just jump in and make a trade. But Tim makes a case for waiting to see which emerges strong.

The Problem with Trading “For Fun”

In the episode, Tim and Stephen discuss another key topic: Why traders must take their work seriously, even if they’re just trading part-time.

If you’re a part-time trader, you may have to fight the temptation to gamble a bit in your trades. After all, it’s not your full-time job … right?

Wrong! It can be downright toxic to your account and progress. Our hosts explain why it’s critical to adopt a healthier trading mindset.
