Using Process and Discipline to Make Better Trades with Casey Stubbs

Episode Summary:

A love of computers as a child and a dad who didn’t know how to use one to set up his stock trades spurred Casey Stubbs’ love of trading. After stints in the military and a failed venture in carpet cleaning, Casey decided to get into trading for real. Today, Casey shares his morning routines and processes for not only making trades, but educating young traders. Listen for his tips.

Full Show Notes:

In the US, we do a horrible job of training young people for financial success, let alone how the stock market works. Our guest today, Casey Stubbs, is on a mission to educate the masses on how the market works and how to make the best trades.

Casey joined Jack and Dan to share his morning routines as well as his daily processes to ensure success. He also shares his thoughts on what’s happening with the Robinhood app and how he is teaching his 20-year-old daughter to be a strong trader as a skill for life. Listen for Casey’s tips and check out his podcast and newsletter.
