EP 196 · My First Year Trading Full-Time: Prop Trader, Ryan Trost
For this third episode in the My First Year Trading Full-Time series, I speak with Ryan Trost. At the time of recording, Ryan had recently crossed 12-months as a junior equities trader at SMB Capital in New York City…
Our conversation begins with Ryan speaking to how he was trading the massive intraday ranges of TSLA during it’s parabolic run in February.
From there we chat about Ryan’s trajectory in life prior to trading, how he landed a seat on a proprietary trading desk, lessons from losing money month after month, how he began to develop an edge, Ryan’s take on trader psychology, a recap of his best and worst days, and ares in which he’s trying to improve upon.
