From April 1st 2013, Rob Booker will travel from California to New York, living from a $10,000 trading account, and talking to traders along the way about what it takes to trade for a living.
Rob will meet traders and interview them for the Traders Podcast. He will also be doing a video every weekday, abour where he is and what he does.
In the Traders Podcast #133 Rob explained how this crazy idea started: “The house where I live is going to be sold. I saw this amazing house in Arizona and I thought “that it’s the house that I want”. You got to earn something like that. You have to get serious about really trying to make it work, cut your expenses down, reduce before you expend… So I’m gonna go on the road and trade my way into that house. I’m gonna start a $10,000 trading account before I go and I’m gonna attempt to live off of the profits from that account as I go.”
This trip could be seen as an experiment and life experience at the same time: “That’s the kind of stuff that really gets traders serious about doing well: when you have a really aspirational and inspirational goal. I’m gonna have a moving company come and sell most of what I have and put the rest in storage. And I’m gonna do what we talk about: not only live a comfortable live that is available to me, I’m gonna see if someone can live during a month with a trading account of 10.000$ and see what happens to me if I can’t.”
Rob added that he will be posting the real time Profit and Loss on his website.
This is a map with the cities where Rob plans to stop.
