AlphaMind Podcast #105 Jacob Holm: The Evolution of a Trader

It is rare that you get the chance to interview a trader still in their early years, and still going through the learning process, but that is what we had a chance to do in this episode of the AlphaMind Podcast. 

We explored the evolution of a trader with Jacob Holm, a young trader from Denmark, still going through the relative early stages of his trading career. 

Jacob discovered a passion for trading, in his mid-teens. He has since dived into trading with gusto, learning the basics of trading, developing his trading skills, learning technical analysis, developing systematic trading capabilities, reading influential writers on trading, in particular the works of Mark Douglas. 

In addition, Jacob worked on developing himself, learning and applying stoic attitudes, gaining a sense of how markets work and how to best work with them, and coming to terms with how uncertainty is part of the structure of markets.

This is a terrific interview which gets into the early-stage development of a trader, however, it will be of interest to traders at all levels, as they reflect on their own journey, and perhaps considers some of the ways they could have done it differently, in ways which are still impacting how they work. 

Jacob, and his colleague at Statera Trading, also design and build automated trading EAs that perform various actions on the Meta stock trading platform, that other traders can subscribe too.
