Steady Trade Podcast Episode 1: An Introduction to Day Trading
What would you say if you heard that there’s a career out there that allows you to be your own boss, to set your own hours, and make incredible amounts of money? As you may have gathered from the name of the show, this podcast is out to prove that trading can be that career. Success as a trader is available for anyone who wants it and is willing to put in the work. The key? You must take the time to learn how to do it right.
In the Steady Trade Podcast, you will learn how to transition from trading curiosity to becoming an active and successful trader. This inaugural episode will begin to lay down the foundation by addressing some of the basics about what it takes to create a career as a trader.
Meet the hosts
The Steady Trade Podcast is brought to you by two hosts: Tim Bohen and Stephen Johnson.
Tim Bohen is a lifelong entrepreneur who has been involved in all sorts of businesses, from pizza to lawn care. But it wasn’t until he began trading penny stocks that he truly began to find financial success. After retiring at the age 40 with his ample penny stock earnings, this self-titled “salty trading veteran” now dedicates himself to educating and mentoring others on developing the skills required for day trading.
Stephen Johnson is also an entrepreneur and creative thinker, but as a trader, he’s a relative newcomer. With just about 13 months of market experience under his belt, he’s on a journey to discover everything he possibly can about trading. He’s currently documenting his process of progressing from rookie to full-time trader on his YouTube channel.
As you can see, Tim and Stephen are coming from very different places in their respective careers. As a listener, you can benefit by the different points in their careers. Together, Tim and Stephen can offer a trading education that shows many different perspectives and points of view. Tim’s hard-earned knowledge and Stephen’s learning-on-his-feet will resonate with traders both old and new, and will inspire you to start or continue your own journey.
Are you ready?
The first steps toward finding trading success are simple. You have to want it, you have to believe in yourself, and you must be willing to take the leap. This podcast’s goal is to help you make that happen by offering you a clear and thorough education on trading. Inspired by their mentor Tim Sykes, the hosts follow an approach of clarity and transparency.
As Tim Bohen says, “We want to help you establish a foundation to get you started as a day trader that will put you in a position to get the most out of what we have to offer in Season Two and beyond.”
The traditional approach will not make you rich.
Traditionally, the approach many are taught to trading is that slow but steady wins the race.
And yes, it’s true that being prudent with your stock choices, choosing strong and solid companies and holding on to those stocks years in and years out can make you money.
The only problem? The traditional approach is not going to make you rich. You might make enough to go on a nice vacation or pad your retirement fund with these long term investments, but if you want to really make serious money, you’ve got to take a different approach.
Day trading: a different (and lucrative) approach
Day trading follows a very different process than long term investing. Instead of holding onto your stocks for months or years, you’re buying and selling on a much more frequent basis.
To be straight, day trading is not for everyone. It’s more volatile and far more demanding of traders. But for those who are up to the challenge, it can be an incredible way to generate income.
In the episode, Tim and Stephen address some of the signs that you might be well suited to day trading. They offer a frank discussion of why it is that 90 percent of day traders fail, and how it is that you can avoid becoming one of the casualties.
Finding success as a day trader
To become a successful day trader, you can’t simply follow another trader’s trajectory. “You will never succeed if you use other people’s ideas”, says Tim Bohen. Yes, you can learn from others and observe the habits and techniques that they employ to make money. But ultimately, it’s thinking for yourself that will help you find success as a trader.
So how can you find your own success as a trader? Tim and Stephen expand upon their own experiences in the episode, offering inspiring real world advice about how to move past chance and flukes and establish your own trading career success.
To celebrate the first season of the Steady Trade Podcast, we’re offering some incredible giveaways. Check out the giveaway page here, and stay tuned for our next episode, where we will discuss the art and science behind trading penny stocks.
What do you think of crypto bubble? Is it opportunities to short it when it will pop?
This us a one for Tim Bohen but I think wait for Bitcoin to fall before you short any of the sympathy plays

Humorous podcast with truth!
Awesome – nice feedback!
Interesting introduction to the presenters, ordinary people that could be “you”. Informative, a good set-up. I’ve watched a number (say 15) of Stephens video casts on “You Tube” which I thought were quite humorous and educational. They plot his success from complete “neophyte”, “having a clue” to “success”.
On the other hand I’ve never been able to get any of Tim Bohens pre or post market broadcasts, even though I’ve tried a number of times to join his training group STT Pro…..impossible to get him or the cost of how to join. STT itself is great software…I’m beginning to make a profit with it. Yeah…tho I’ve heard all their stories before it was some good light entertainment.
Thanks Robert I will have an associate contact you ASAP about Pro, sorry you have not been contacted!
Very good start. I appreciate the info.
No worries – thanks for commenting and look forward to having you back for season 2.
Can feel that Stephen really tries to entertain us haaha 🙂 Awesome job guys, look forward to more of these!!!!
I do try to entertain -stocks are boring – my passion is to make them more interesting!
Hey Tim and Stephen i am a very new trader ive been studying for about a year and a half reading everything i could read and watch for free. i havent made a trade yet in the market my first week is this coming week.I have signed up for pennystocking silver very pleased with it so far his training videos are priceless good and bad set ups. Im super excited for my run to becoming a millionaire hearing your guys history was great makes me want to try even harder then you. keep the prod cast and youtube videos come i love free education.
Ya for sure Brandon don’t worry much more free education is on its way! Keep with the Podcast you’ll continue learning and watch the Sykes video lessons until your eyes bleed there’s about 5k of them.
This was a great start to the series. Great work guys. I am eagerly looking forward to learning more in the next episode.
Oh and you will Michael – oh and you will – amazing to see the feedback – live the dream baby and keep working hard to getting to the next level!
Great content. Strphen Johnson is the man lol. been following him from the beginning of his journey. Very entertaining. Glad to see his growth. He proof that being consistent and studying hard will get you there.
Absolutely man! It’s a privilege to inspire you on your own journey. It’s possible but remember – we all have our hard studying periods and our struggles – just get through and worst case even do just 30 minutes per day if you’re struggling – sometimes life does get in the way but ideally of course study until your eyes bleed.
Love to listen to you guys. Im standning here at my job thinking about trading all the time. I know this is a life long journey and i love everyting about it. Keep up the good work with teaching us about stock trading.
I WILL NOT FAIL 😁
WE WILL NOT FAIL. YES! Love to hear you say that and I mean it every much as bit when I screamed it off my balcony communicating that I was flying to Jamaica. Good to see you here. Good to see you realise it’s a long-term process – good to see you’re committed to getting to the next level. Live the dream fella.
BRING IT ON! LET’S DO THIS! TIM B. PLUS STEPHEN J. GREAT TWIST 👌 EXPERIENCED & NEWBIE. I’M EXCITED TO LEARN SOMETHING GOLD UNTIL THE END OF THE EPISODES!
We have six so hang in there and keep learning to get to the next level. I’m just pumped replying to you Jose – Live the Dream.
Thanks for the podcast Tim and Stephen! Was great hearing each of your stories and how you got to this point. Can’t wait to hear more!
I can’t wait to tell more. I’m pumped. Glad you enjoyed it. Let’s keep pushing forward together.
I already love this podcast! I’m glad that I will get to add more things about trading to my life through this podcast.
Perfect dude – keep on commenting too I want to learn more about your story as I’ve already shared mine.
Awesome podcast!! I can’t wait for the next one
YES JORDAN. This is the feedback we want to hear!
awesome job! Thanks
Thanks for watching Andoni – keep pushing forward!
Yes, yes I want a new lifestyle. I want Stocks To Trade Pro. So give me the greedy package!!!
Yes ping pong mom also, and love Texas Hold’em!!
I am in Tim Sykes Millionaire Masters Program, hope to move up to the Challenge Program in a few months and to earn enough to get in the Stocks To Trade Pro Program! I know the more I learn the better I will be at day trading.
Stephen I have seen a few of your you tube videos.
Enjoyed the 1st podcast. Thanks for all you guys do in teaching us and giving us the tools to become a good (great) day trader! 🙂
Awesome Debbie! I hope your trading is going well – keep pushing forward – it’s tough but not impossible! Live the dream.
I like it gentlemen! Keep up the good work!
It’s tough so good to get all the education you get – I’m happy to play even a small-part in your learning. Keep living the dream. Never settle for ordinary when you can be extraordinary.
The analogy tim continue of language was pretty bad just found it funny. Good stuff.
It helped me a lot! It’s good context no?
Great podcast..It has given me an insight into what it’s like as a beginner Trader !!
Awesome Phil – take it easy and don’t buy too many shares too early trade small to prevent any big losses to get ahead later.
Great start to the podcast series. The first 10 minutes were a little irritating to me. Stephen was coming in clear but Tim had an reverberation when he talked. After they got on with the actual podcast though, everything was fine. Great information to put out, and a great topic to discuss with laying the groundwork to this series.
Stay with us Scott there’s a lot to learn and thanks for the compliment on the great info – more to come and a lot of good basic lessons.
Thanks for the podcast. I’ll take any knowledge I can get!
Awesome Jack – knowledge is power and failing to prepare is preparing to fail. Keep at it fella.
I think the introduction Podcast had no real personal I.D Content. I feel it needed a Theme, as well as needed serious, yet funnier interviewee trading stories of each Podcast member. I think you need to add more personal stories of failure & success. Emphasizing the struggles, determination, motivation & personal goals on your journey to being self-sufficient or wanting to be financially free. Talking about each other’s strengths & weaknesses.
Decent enough feedback – let me relay this back to the guys for series 2 – stick in there Max Max and cheers for listening.
is useful and this can help a lot
Awesome Eivory – Live the dream and keep pushing brother!
I’ve been seeing and hearing a theme of truth through trading videos, Tim Sykes’ videos and in this podcast.
1 Learn to rely on yourself 2.Put in the work. 3. STUDY YOUR ASS OFF. 4 Dream big, see the bigger picture and realize what is capable. I’m beginning to live it, and kick myself in the ass when I forget it!
I love that this Podcast introduction is high in energy, motivational, REAL, positive, and leaves me wanting to listen to MORE, like.. RIGHT NOW! lol.
I also like how they mention what you can expect to learn.. THE BASICS OF MAKING TRADES, which for a n00b paper trader like me, who had no idea what he did in his last trade, minus under 3 minutes seen a stock go from green to red to green again, but failed to initiate it properly is GOLD! =) (Just being real here, we all start somewhere… x.x)
Anyways, I’ve made up my mind, I’m with this till the end and will be a successful FULL TIME MILLIONAIRE TRADER once my knowledge base is sufficient. Factory work and other jobs barely keep your head above the water, but its a waste of a life, time, effort, mental capabilities, energy and more. Worst of all, you are living to make someone else’ dream come true when in the meantime, you have no name, you are known AS a NUMBER ( The ultimate F*** Off Pleb) !!! This is what the world has really come to..
Thanks so much for the positive feedback Jon. It’s awesome you love the high energy! Education and entertainment together is definitely the way forward. Look forward to seeing you back at episode 2.
This was a really good intro to your podcast series looking forward to the next one
Awesome will – hopefully you’ll continue to have good take aways from it cheers!
The “Greedy Little Bastard” package…..perfect!
YES – PERFECT – Good luck sir you may be a winner!
I think the podcast was great and the other guy is crazy but I would like them to talk more about how to start and how do you no when your ready to start trading
You can easily start by setting up a broker and then getting through a lot of Tim Sykes Silver lessons or using Stocks To Trade Pro. This will give you the basics – or try Trader Checklist – Tim’s free DVD.
As to when you should start. It’s only when you feel truly comfortable to put your own money on the line with confidence in your trading plan – maybe we can add an episode into season 2 tho to discuss this more – cheers!
It’s nice, I like this
Elvory I like you – thanks for your comment!
Awesome guys….great podcast.keep them coming.
Cheers! Keep on watching and commenting baby!
I love the first episode. It’s a great intro on commitment, pattern familiarity and learning from the past. The fact that there is a sense of humour to the podcast makes it also entertaining! See you in Orlando – Phil
Yes Phill, I will be in Orlando as will Tim Bohen – see you there make sure you say hello!
Read This Website
I really liked this first episode
Awesome! Tell friends it’s a beautiful thing to share things.
How you start as a rookie with only one laptop screen?
You only need one screen fella. One screen and a big heart full of drive and eyes that can bleed tears of hard work. Keep at it. Plus, a monitor for an additional screen is very cheap.
I like the first podcast and where they came from, before getting into trading.
That’s good man! It’s got a good logical flow – see you at the next episode.
Looking to learn to identify what kind of trader I am, I’d like for you be more specific with the patterns you use, how you recognize them in every charts, whats difference between to trade Nasdaq or OTC, do you use the same time frame, patterns etc
Hi Dulio, these things honestly you have to learn yourself by tracking the market and identifying the patterns that work for you. I’d recommend the free DVD trader Checklist or PennyStocking Silver to get more idea of patterns that work In the market. Trading Tickers has good BreakOUT patterns outlined by Tim Grittani on OTC and Nasdaq stocks.
Great job fellas! Keep up the great work!
Thanks so much Otto – keep on being a positive mofo I love it!
I dont know why but I cant submit my survey.
Still no luck? Let me know if it still has not gone through Jonk87 is my twitter.
No luck for me as well. If it helps, this is the error that is being thrown when pressing the submit button: Uncaught TypeError: $container.fadeTo is not a function (front.js:1).
cheers I’ll feed it back.
Stephen: I didnt know who you were or your story, I appreciate hearing people experiences, I really enjoyed it. I will check out your videos on Youtube. Excited to keep listening to you guys as I admire TIMBohem big time!!!
Awesome man – nice to hear that – it’s great!
Thank you very much for the information, I think it is a fun way to learn.
Deffo glad you hear that.
I really think this is an awesome idea Tim, Stephen! Thank you very much for putting the effort and making this. Stephen, I think you already found your winning strake. It is all about the journey, and working with the Tims on this amazing project of teaching others to be successful is as amazing as Dux´s million dollar trading profits. I remember watching a youtube video in your channels months ago, and recommending the Challenge for you because I really believe in this! Keep doing the great work!
Thanks Eduardo – appreciate that feedback!
Great podcast but my survey answers won’t submit. Looking forward to episode 2
Really liked it. But after I filled out the survey it would not submit
I can not submit the survey … is not working
i apăs butonul pentru a trimite sondajul meu și nu funcționează
i press the button for submit my survey and is not working
This is great. This podcast allows the hosts to give more insight on the bigger picture and to share their personal stories which will be so helpful to listeners. Looking forward to the next podcast! Thank you!
Nice – good to hear positive insight – thanks Alison.
I hope the future podcasts are as simple and understandable as this first one is. Keeping it basic and understandable is better than hints on the best trades. At least that is my opinion.
I couldn’t submit either
no definitely we plan to keep it simple throughout the whole of season 1. Enjoy the season.
This is awesome. More knowledge on the go while driving or traveling.
Deffo – that’s the aim – to give different forms of education – I’m learning a lot just doing it.
This is my first Podcast ever I have listen in my life, and I’m leaning with humor and knowledge to become a daytime Trader
Good Carlos – I like that humour and fun! OR if you’re American Humor 🙂
Good intro video! Was interested in the part when they were talking about people need to know how to trade without tail-trading. Be your own trader! I’d like to see some trading patterns/strategies in future videos
Yeah a lot of this will come in future episodes – see you on the next episode.
I’ve purchase DVD’s, subscribe to Stock to Trade. I guess my problem is I don’t know where to start or how to start. I don’t have a problem with studying in fact I want to know and understand. I hope this podcast will be give what I need to be successful. Thanks!
What DVD’s did you purchase?
I’m sure you’ll learn a lot as I did just listening to Bohen and recording it.
I thought this was great stuff and i am waiting for the next one
Great work guys I love the chemistry you have keep it up can’t wait for more you guys have me feeling like a greedy little bastard
haha we are all greedy little basterds that’s why we trade – or why I do 🙂
Great first episode!… P.S. – my birthday is Oct. 3rd!
ha nice man and thanks Ben.
Great first episode, Tim & Stephen! You guys made me laugh – great humor! Loved getting each of your backstories and psyched to learn more from you both!
Awesome Lisa – that’s wonderful to hear I’m pumped! See you at the next episode.
I love this! Listened to this on the train on the way home. Loved the history. I’ve been seeing Steven’s videos from the start. So proud of this new opportunity for you! Very excited for all of the new insight. I’m hearing more and more that you need to research stocks before you trade them and make a plan. I’d love to hear more about that in future episodes. Also, I really hope I win the big prize! Thanks guys!
Good – because one of the episodes is all about making a plan and the importance of it – you’ll love that one coming in the next few weeks.
Episode 1 was great! I’ve always liked Tim Bohen’s personality, and Stephen Johnson’s humor breaks things up from being stuffy and boring. It’s always nice to here peoples stories of there journey and how they end up where they are. Unfortunately I think your going to be a hit, So think on doing more than 6 of these. Ok?
hahah don’t worry I think it’s already in the works so more will come if reaction stays positive 🙂
Tim and Stephen’s personality mesh well together in this podcast! Looking forward to the rest of the season. Love the realness as well, “Most of you listers won’t win…any of these prizes”. The reward is getting the knowledge itself!
Tim, love your background and experience with trading, share all of them! Jonk, 99% of beginners don’t have the courage to share their losses, let alone document and share videos of their ups and down. Keep it up as you are an inspiration for every new trader like myself!
Awesome to hear appreciate that and yeah I’ll keep pushing fella – Live the Dream
One of my favourite comments – live the dream fella and thanks a loooooot
Great podcast! Tim and Stephen, i have been watching your youtube videos, Stephen since you started and I see the progression you have made and I want to thank you for sharing your videos, they are very inspiring and entertaining! Congratulations on all you green days and all your achievements!!!
Keep up the good work guys!
ha cheers man and it’s wonderful to see you switching over to hear as well – hope you can learn a lot from Tim and a little from my mistakes – live the dream fella #WEWILLNOTFAIL
Great first episode guys! Loved the humourous touches and there seems to be a real chemistry between you guys. Anyone who appreciates Lose Yourself will always be a winner for me too! “History doesn’t repeat but it rhymes.” –> I hope the quality of your podcast continues in this vain!
Hi Tim and Stephen
Thanks for making this podcast session 1 of SteadyTrade. I think i am the very first few to sign up for this first lol, guess because I am ahead of time, in Shanghai 🙂
I am a millionaire student since last December and have recently decided to go full on the challenge Its being a rough first half of 2017, but never the less nothing will stop me for pursuing self sufficiency, financial education and freedom
I like the fact that the Podcast is funny and humorous haha, but not sure if it will appeal to most of the crowd tho 🙂 Very bromance talking style haha. I like it, please keep it up
I like how you mentally prepare for all the audience that everyone and anyone can get into trading, no matters what ethnic background, culture, race or sex one are. Most important it is a learning process, especially a long one that full of trial and error in finding ones own preferred style and strategy. You are trying to teach fishing by showing how and giving us the fishing rod instead spoon feeding.
Myself I am a martial artist and my model hero is Bruce, and I always believe what he always quote on, knowing and find ways to express yourself, use no way as ways. Guess there is no fix one approach and strategy 100% for everyone, one need to adapt to various situation of the macro environment and all etc
However I think it would be great to give a very brief broad steps on the high level processes that most successful trader had to go through. Kinda like the DVDs what Tim x 2 had put together for content breakdown in top down orders and the flow that guides through the education of trading
Myself I would prefer to learn more from podcast on different successful trader’s daily routines, and preparation before markets, and also the different mistakes/lessons we can learn from each of them. Since success is hard to duplicate, but mistakes and failures are often the sames for most
Just my 2cents and keep up the great work!
Great input Stephen! Remember we will be doing these weekly for as long as listeners like you tune in!! So lots of content coming in the future!
The best of both worlds! Tim and Stephen, congratulations and well done on a great podcast! 🙂
Loved the energy and simplicity of the podcast for beginners. Thank you Tim and Stephen!
nice podcast , good use of background music, knowledge is everything thank you S.J. and T.B. excited for the next episode .

This season i’d like to hear your thoughts on the following and how important they are to your success (and Stephens upcoming success):
Quantitative Analysis, Technical indicators to use for scanners pre-market, any specifics to look out for as an account grows (like greater fear, geting too comfortable, ignoring risk, etc.), Technical analysis.
Thanks for this guys and appreciate it being given freely. You fucking rock!
Try to respond to survey but says my email address is not valid when it is the one I signed up with lol
Great start to the show, love the casual, humorous aspect; one too sound bites that interrupt the flow IMO. Looking forward to hearing the rest and growing my knowledge that to you guys. Keep it up!
Big props fellas I didn’t fill this out the first go around but enjoyed both podcasts thus far and look forward to cracking up for many more weeks to come….thanx!
Our goal is to make it educational and fun, glad you enjoyed it!
Great Intro, Nice and witty while learning, How often are you doing these Podcasts?
It’s good to hear an English man succeeding in this field along with everyone else on here.
Stephen, what trading platform do you use? a lot of them aren’t available for Non US Citizens.
I’m Still studying and learning for a lot more time before i trade, but it’ll be nice to have a good setup going in to it all.
Excellent post. I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Very useful info particularly the last part kccdkbddddkb
