Desire To Trade Podcast | Forex Trading Tips & Interviews with Highly Successful Traders

This podcast is all about developing Forex trading skills for more freedom! My name is Etienne Crete (from Montreal, Canada). I'm a swing Forex trader and help aspiring Forex traders develop a trading method that works for them so they can produce income allowing them to live with more freedom. What you must know: I'm all for trading foreign exchange, but I think freedom is much more important than time spent in front of your computer. I blog at www.desiretotrade.com and host the Desire To Trade Podcast. I was fed up with the “fake” millionaire traders and the “get-rich-quick-trading guys”. That's why you can expect more free content from me than what other people charge for! If you truly want to succeed in Forex trading, I believe you need to keep working on yourself so you can improve your strengths, but also your weaknesses. Do not focus solely on what you're good at. I'll help you do that! The Desire To Trade Podcast has for goal to help you develop Forex trading skills for more freedom. I interview successful traders from around the world. My focus is on providing you with lessons from my personal trading experience and my conversations as I trade and travel around the globe.

In episode 93 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Stacey Burke, a Forex trader who has learned about trading the hard way while blowing up some small accounts and making all the mistakes most losing traders make. 

Through that process, however, he has able to identify where the real problems were in his trading and how he could finally turn the corner to become one of the few profitable traders.

Coming from a sporting background in ice hockey and Ironman triathlon, hard work and a competitive nature are some of the attributes he believes are necessary to succeed in Forex trading.

Stacey gives credit to other great traders for his success. Brent Penfold's advice on being "the best loser", but he also implemented things in his daily routine to help him continually keep getting better at the process of trading. Like Mike Bellafiore says "how good can we get?"

Here's a key takeaway:

"Trading mastery is a journey, not a destination. Focus on constant progress, NOT perfection." (click to tweet!)

I’d love if you can take a few seconds to leave a review on iTunes or Stitcher. Let me know honestly what you think of the podcast because the only way I can improve is through your reviews.
