Interview With James King – Chat with Traders Episode 133

Hello everyone! I hope you had a great week. This is episode 133 and I want to introduce you to today’s guest, James King. He used to work for the London firm Mandara Capital as the Performance Director. At this position he used techniques he learned from his degree in Applied Sports Science and Performance Psychology to implement scientific methods to stack probability in the favour of success.

Right now, he’s working on a new venture that helps to support talented retail traders that have extra capital, as well as other useful resources. This venture is called Project Thor, which we briefly talk about. Definitely check that out if it’s something that interests you.

Throughout the episode, James and I talk about testing for resilience, the principles for success, how to keep motivated and focusing on the right things, routines, how you can massively multiply results by creating “stretch goals”, and much more.

There’s a lot of stuff to learn in this episode. Even if you want to implement everything, take my suggestion and just apply one or two things.

Just warning you, James is getting over a cold, so he may sound a bit off. Ok, enough of me, let’s get to today’s episode with James King.

What’s Covered in This Interview:

  • Why it’s crucial to choose the right things to focus on, and how individual investors can identify principles to stack probability in their favor.
  • James’ scientific method for hiring people, including not doing traditional interviews, testing for resilience and using technology during initiation.
  • How to keep a healthy level of motivation, creating stretch goals to 10x your results and asking this one question to help you with every single trading decision you make.
