Cleo returns in a new installment of The Humanity of Trading, this time with fellow band member Perdue to discuss the psychological challenges he encounters in trading. While talking about the importance of finding focus and flow in trading, Perdue shares how he creates an environment that allows him to be in his zone and perform at his best. He also talks about finding outlets for frustration and how he channels his energy into other activities like working out and pursuing adrenaline-inducing hobbies. Perdue shares his personal rituals and triggers that help him get into the trading mindset before moving on to overcoming internal obstacles and the role of personal development in trading. Other topics touched on include the benefits of listening to music and motivational talks while trading, the influence of Rich Friesen on positive self-talk, understanding meditation and mental discipline, the importance of putting in the work in trading, recognizing negative self-talk and reframing, the problem with proprietary trading strategies, the value of sharing and giving credit in trading, the culture of scams and predators in trading, finding outlets for anger in trading, and knowing your place in the market.

Meet Perdue, a resilient and successful small business owner who wears the hats of a dedicated father and husband with pride. Perdue's journey hasn't been paved with ease; instead, he is a testament to the belief in hard work, discipline, and the doggedpursuit of one's goals.

Perdue is not just a successful business owner; he is also a seasoned trader with a diverse set of strategies. Countless hours spent backtesting and refining these strategies reflect his meticulous approach to trading. His dedication to mastering the craft positions him as a valuable contributor to the trading community. As a firm believer in the "Grind," Perdue chose to embrace putting in the work and serves as a example of how dedication and self-belief can propel you to great heights.

A self-taught, no-nonsense trader, Perdue is unwaveringly supportive, but he doesn't sugarcoat the truth. His belief in discipline and hard work is not only evident in his own journey but extends to his interactions with others. When Perdue recognizes these qualities in fellow traders, he goes above and beyond to offer support, especially when they are navigating through challenges.
