#97 Jason Shapiro: 'The Contrarian' Answers Listeners Questions

Jason Shapiro returns to the AlphaMind podcast a year after his first episode proved to be one of our most popular to date. Jason featured in Jack Schwager’s brilliant ‘Unknown Market Wizard’ where he was known as ‘The Contrarian’, which tells all you need to know about his approach and style. 

 In this episode, Jason answers a series of questions submitted by AlphaMind Podcast listeners, and expands upon his trading approach, his views about trading and markets, and shares more details of how he uses the ‘Commitment of Traders’ report. 

Though Jason’s approach is firmly welded to his contrarian philosophy this episode covers a range of topics and themes which would have enormous value to traders of all styles, approaches, and philosophies. 

Jason also talks about the Crowded Market Report, a Futures trading education website , and a community of traders which focuses on and supports traders in developing a contrarian approach. - A portion of proceeds from the Crowded Market Report are donated to the Charlestown Early Learning Center, a non-profit organization, to provide a high quality, affordable educational program for 3, 4, and 5 year old children in the local community. - You can learn more Jason at the Crowded Market report at this link:
