Grant is known for his interviewing skills — today, Kim turns the tables and puts Grant in the hot seat. Here’s what you’ll discover in this action-packed episode:
What To Expect in This Episode
- Grant believes that as traders and investors, “the first duty we all have is to not suffer big losses.” That being said, this bear market is different. Grant offers plenty of sage advice to help traders approach the current market, and shares why even experienced traders are struggling. Plus, learn why the “Just wait til it gets back to even” mindset is very dangerous thinking.
- Speaking of mindset, Grant talks about his personal mindset tricks. Early on his his career, he experienced the 1987 trading crash. He was “standing around in a daze wondering what happened.” That experience taught him viscerally that crashes can happen. He explains the “problematic” side of a market like we experienced in 2020, and how “repetition and recognizing situations, recognizing how you are reacting to certain things that are happening to you” is key if you want to keep growing.
- If you don’t make the same mistake twice, then every mistake is perfectly acceptable. Trading it takes more than once for those lessons to be learned and that’s OK as long as you avoid that catastrophic loss.
- A frank and detailed discussion about recent crypto losses, the nature of bear markets, and the importance of having the courage to lose money.
- The “impossible” question of how long the bear market will last and why there could be a shift from intangibles to “real value.”
