Interview Aaron Fifield– Chat With Traders Episode 145


Hello team! This is first episode in the history of Chat With Traders podcast, where I’m doing it solo. Actually, this episode is a recording of a talk I gave at Noosapalooza 2017, which is a trading conference hosted by Nick Radge in Australia.

My talk was called ‘Six Ways to Emulate Talented Traders’ and I reference many conversations I’ve had on this podcast through the talk. I’ve linked to the full list of episodes I’ve referenced, including a brief summary of my talking points over at

The audio quality isn’t the best so I hope you’ll forgive me for that. Please enjoy and I always appreciate any feedback you have.

Enjoy and I welcome any comments, again at:

Thanks for listening!

1. Have an unstoppable demeanor

“The number on thing is grit. You need to be like a bulldog that gets his teeth around a bone and will not let go.” – Darren Reed

2. Play the long game

“It’s been quite a ride for me, it’s been one I’ve enjoyed. I like trading, I like watching markets. I love being a student of markets, I guess, more than I actually like to trade. I’m a real student of markets.” – Peter Brandt

3. Know your strategy intimately

“Do less, do it better, do it bigger.” – Jeff Davis

4. Trade with an edge

“If you’re missing an edge, there’s no reason to play.” – Blair Hull

5. Manage your lifeblood

“It’s not all about getting one trade right. It’s about staying in the game by having the right risk management.” – Saul Knapp

6. Stick to the game plan

“There’s been many times in my earlier years, when I didn’t follow my systems. I would be much wealthier now if I had.” – Jerry Parker
