In episode 212 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I sit down for a 2nd time with Mike Bellafiore, the co-founder of SMB Capital, a well-known proprietary trading firm based in New York, USA. Mike is also the author of One Good Trade: Inside the Highly Competitive World of Proprietary Trading and The PlayBook: An Inside Look at How to Think Like a Professional Trader.
SMB Capital’s trader-training program was highlighted in the TV documentary Wall Street Warriors. His firm has appeared regularly on CNBC’s Fast Money, CNNMoney, Bloomberg, and Fox Business.
I first heard of Mike Bellafiore and SMB Capital through Mike's first book called One Good Trade. It describes how things are done in a proprietary trading firm and provides real stories of traders who had or hadn't what it took to thrive in this world of trading. I highly recommend the book!
Mike has a lot of experience working with traders and came to understand what made them successful. He also knows what the learning process looks like for a trader.
As some of you may know Mike and SMB Capital help sponsor Traders4ACause which is a charitable organization focused on value. They make a yearly conference in Las Vegas in which all proceeds are donated to a set of charities. If you want to assist to the next event, get great trading related value and networking and help a good cause you can check out the event, register and donate at: https://traders4acause.org/
