Show Notes

Glen Goodman is a cryptocurrency contributing expert for the London School of Economics and was formerly a Business Correspondent for BBC News and ITV News, interviewing leading politicians, including Boris Johnson, David Cameron and Theresa May.

Glen is the author of The Crypto Trader, published by Harriman House. In this Amazon bestseller, he draws on 20 years of trading experience to show how to trade cryptocurrency successfully.

Glen's Facebook page, Glen Goodman – The Shares Guy, has a quarter of a million followers. It focuses on teaching people how to invest sensibly in cryptocurrencies and other investments. He is regularly interviewed about cryptocurrency and other business topics for BBC TV & Radio, Reuters TV, Al Jazeera, LBC, The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph, Forbes and Newsweek, among others.

Glen started trading cryptocurrencies while they were still in their infancy and quickly discovered there were enormous profits to be made. With his trading experience he was able to make those profits – and keep them, while most other traders were losing their money during the Bitcoin crash of 2018. Glen has continued to trade cryptocurrency successfully during the market recovery.

You will come across few people with a greater passion and enthusiasm for trading than Glen. His first experiences of trading were in the dotcom bubble. Those first experience, as with so many who enter their trading career in a raging bull market, ended up being a painful one. However, Glen was hooked and was determined to learn how to trade, so that one day he could beat the system.

Whilst Glen worked as a news journalist and reporter, he continued to learn how to be a trader. Eventually after a number of years, he hit upon the sort of consistent performance which meant he could commit more time to his passion.

Combining his work and his passion for trading led to some interesting incidences. One story Glen tells is of the time he was reporting from the middle of anti-capitalist riots, being surrounded by mobs of anarchists throwing bricks at bank buildings and battling the police, whilst all the time he was busy trading and booking profits on his phone. 

These days, Glen is a full-time trader. As you can hear from this vibrant conversation, Glen has great enthusiasm for trading. In this interview, Glen shares his story and his journey into trading, talks about his early experiences, his learning journey and the time when it all started to come together. 

We also discuss crypto trading, its challenges and the nature of the crypto which differentiates it from other asset classes. Glen, as you will hear, is refreshingly honest, objective and well-informed about all things crypto. He is not an obsessive ‘hodler’ of bitcoin who believes it’s the greatest thing since the dawn of time, he is just curious about crypto, actively trades it, and is willing to be long when it's bullish and short or out when bearish.
