#102 Matt 'PAX' Kenah: A Futures Trader's Story - Part 2

In this 2nd part of this outstanding chat with former Chicago pit trader Matt ‘Pax’ Kenah. Matt takes us to a deeper exploration of his story. We discuss Matt's personal battles, hiss loss caused by the collapse of MF global, the struggles with his self which followed this, and the rebuilding of his career. We look at the steps Matt took, and the foundation blocks he built to come back and build a trading career for a second time around. Matt talks about the support of his wife, his religious faith, his faith in God, and ultimately how his rebuilt his faith in his self. This is powerful conversation, where Matt talks openly and frankly about the challenges of trading, and the dark places trading takes people to. We discusses the mind games he, and others, play in order to survive the realities of trading, and how he takes care of himself. We also explore  the dangers of falling for the hype, and how this impacted him when he was 10% of the Nasdaq futures volume when ego took over, and the dangers this presents.
