Lance Breitstein was a Senior Trader at proprietary trading firm Trillium and Manager of the Chicago office. He has trained, mentored and refined dozens of top discretionary intraday traders, while arguably being Trillium’s best trader in the firm’s history.

This episode was recorded in 2019, prior to Lance going on to set the firm’s all-time PNL record, with landslide wins as ‘Top Trader’ in both 2020 and 2021 after consecutive 8-figure years. At the beginning of 2022, Lance resigned from Trillium to better focus on alternative growth opportunities and philanthropy.

In part one of our (two part) conversation, you’ll hear Lance expound upon his slow learning curve and how he was on the verge of quitting, systemized learning and repetition, the emotional edge in trading capitulations and more.

This podcast solely reflects the views of Lance and is not representative of Trillium’s views.
