trend following podcastFor episode 15 of the Don’t Talk About Your Stocks Podcast, I had the opportunity to discuss trading with Tom Basso. Tom was one of the traders Jack Schwager interviewed in The New Market Wizards and has also been a guest on Michael Covel’s podcast.

I originally came into contact with Tom through Facebook. In all of my interactions with him, I have been thrilled to find that he is a tremendously giving person who is more than willing to take the time to help young traders along their way.

The one thing that really stands out in my mind from this interview is the emphasis Tom puts on how important it is to stop worrying about finding the optimal buy and sell rules. This is something that I have struggled with lately, and the interview was a terrific coaching session for me.
