CMC Markets launches new podcast for traders and investors

The Artful Trader goes live today, featuring experts in financial markets including Raoul Pal, author of Market Wizards, former Goldman Sachs hedge fund manager Ray Barros and professional trader, author and educator Linda Raschke.

Leading global financial services provider, CMC Markets has today launched a new podcast series, The Artful Trader, educating and inspiring global listeners on the art of trading the financial markets.

The Artful Trader podcasts will explore the psychology of trading experts, delving into their thought process when facing big wins, losses and everything between. The series will unlock the secrets behind the highs and lows of some of the industry’s most renowned experts, and recount their journey to mastering the art of the financial markets.

The podcast series is a new initiative for CMC Markets, designed to provide education and insights to traders through an accessible and popular medium that is experiencing significant groundswell in Australia. The Artful Trader will initially launch as a series of eight podcasts, with speakers and topics to include:

  • Jack Schwager, fund manager, industry expert in futures and hedge funds and author of Market Wizards Raoul Pal
  • Economist, investment strategist and publisher at the Global Macro Investor and former hedge fund manager for Goldman Sachs and GLL Partners Ray Barros.
  • Professional trader, fund manager, author and educator Linda Raschke, an American commodities and futures trader, president of LBR Group, Inc. and LBR Asset Management Graham O’Brien, manager of equity derivatives sales, ASX

Talking about the launch of the podcast series, CMC Markets Chief Market Strategist, who is the host for the series, Michael McCarthy, said, “Trading is considered incredibly strategic, rigorous and rational, but behind every great trader is a person with passion, energy and – most importantly – a story. The Artful Trader has been created to offer access to internationally renowned speakers and traders, each with their own experiences of the art of trading.”

The new podcast series is a natural evolution to CMC Markets’ annual Masterclass series, which ran from 2012 – 2016, providing Australian traders access to internationally renowned speakers.

“We wanted to access the increasing number of Australians listening to podcasts. This series explores all dimension of trading and the stories behind the industry’s best. It will appeal to a broad audience from high frequency traders to everyday investors to those who’ve never traded a share in their life.

Mr McCarthy continued, “It’s fantastic to have some of these greats of trading join us and share their insights as part of this series. I’m confident their experiences and stories will both entertain and educate our traders here in Australia and New Zealand, who may have previously been unable to attend a Masterclass event.”

Talking about the launch of the podcast series, Head of CMC Markets Asia Pacific and Canada, Matthew Lewis said, “There is a gap in the market for traders to gain a first-hand, behind the scenes understanding of the experiences, challenges and tips of developing a successful trading strategy, and The Artful Trader has been created to meet this need.”

Ray Barros, a renowned trader, is one of eight traders to be interviewed as part of the first series of podcasts. He said, “I have learnt a great deal from other influential traders throughout my career, and I’m a real advocate of ongoing education and mentoring fellow traders. The opportunity to be one of the first interviewees in The Artful Trader podcast series was very appealing.”

The first two episodes of The Artful Trader are available for download now on both iTunes and Android –
