AlphaMind Podcast - JTrader: There’s No Easy Money - Adaption, Evolution and Learning.

In this week's AlphaMind Podcast, we talk to Joseph Gasperoni, who goes by the name JTrader. 

Jo is a full-time trader and educator, who started trading in the dotcom era in Italy. Jo learned the lesson painfully, that there is no easy money in trading, and just when you think there may be, the opportunities that produce it get snatched away from you. 

This is a sobering story for many young traders who are currently experiencing their own ‘easy money’. 

After the taps ran dry for Jo, he was forced to go into a period of deep reflection, followed by extreme anxiety and self-doubt. The period of underperformance was a hit to his self-esteem which he took personally, which led to sleepless nights and panic attacks.

After taking a break for a couple of years Jo returned to trading, and effectively started over, learning a new strategy in a new market, and trading in new ways. The key to his story and subsequent success is one of adaption, evolution and re-learning.

Jo later started his own educational arm which provides learning and mentoring services for traders.

Education services are vital for new retail traders who miss out on the benefits of learning in a trading room environment. Whilst there are many dubious providers of trading education, Jo came highly recommended, and is able to share the benefit of his experience with his clients.

In this chat, Jo shares his back story, his enthusiasm and passion of trading, and the importance of investing in good quality education, mentorship and development.

As well as being a full-time trader, Jo is into mixed martial arts and bodybuilding.
