I was recently introduced to Greg Newman by James King [Episode 133]. The two previously worked together at Mandara Capital, a London Trading firm…
There, James was the performance director (with a background in sports science), and Greg was head of a highly successful oil trading desk—which he built from the ground up in three years, with some guidance from James for overcoming obstacles.
Now, Greg remains a serious participant in oil derivatives and has gone on to become a founding partner of Onyx Commodities. Greg and his firm are most active in oil futures (and the energy sector), but also trading in related OTC products, or better known as swaps.
So naturally, you’ll hear Greg speak about futures, swaps, producers and the physical—which is really interesting! He also talks about “trade craft” and how stoic thinking has moulded him into the trader he is today.

Phil Goedeker has been trading stocks for, roughly, 15 years. He started young, in college, made a truckload of money in a short period of time, which then afforded him the luxury of never having to work a “real job.”
Admittedly, Phil will tell you, luck was a major factor early on. Nonetheless, he’s been abundantly successful since, and has continued trading—now with a strategy, with rules and with an edge. Phil’s way of trading is to short parabolic moves—on low float stocks which have been seriously hyped up, and when he senses golden opportunities, he strikes with real conviction.
You’ll hear Phil speak about; his early days and progression, his obsession with cutting losses quickly and going hard on trades which can make a good year a great year. Plus some talk about strategy, timing, setups and why Phil is set on filtering his trading profits into farmland…
