If you trade peanuts, the best you can make is peanuts regardless of how well you trade them.

Welcome to the second episode of the Trader Nation Podcast, an encounter in audio format with you, traders and investors of the independent trader movement. Hosted by Nick “The Moose” Batsford.

Episode Summary

How many millionaires do you know who’ve made millions trading financial markets? Probably lots of hedge fund billionaires. But how many have made it from home?

There are three reasons for this:

  1. It’s very hard to make 20% per year consistently over time.
  2. Very few Hedge Funds worldwide have delivered that performance over a sustained period.
  3. Compounding a small initial capital at 20% per year won’t make you billions.

This is the peanut problem. If you trade peanuts, the best you can make is peanuts – regardless of how well you trade them. In this episode, Juan and Moose talk about the financial ways that exist to solve this problem.
