In this week’s episode of the Money Tree Investing Podcast, Nick Kraakman interviews Chris Moody, a highly experienced swing trader, on the difference between trading and investing. Chris shares some thought-provoking insights with us and recommends several must-read books for the aspiring trader.

Is it possible to consistently earn 50% or more a year? Does it take 10.000 hours to become a trader? Is it better to specialize or know a little about a lot? Is the behavior of investors predictable? Can Buffett be 10 times richer if he simply did a stock split? These and more questions will all be answered in this brand-new episode!
