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.

The Fascinating Story Of An Institutional Forex Trader – Show Notes

In episode 103 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Forex trader Tony Sycamore, an ex-institutional trader with a fascinating story in the market.

Watch the video interview with Tony Sycamore

Tony started studying technical analysis more than 20 years ago while working for Macquarie Bank on the floor of the Sydney Futures Exchange (SFE). That was where Tony’s passion for the markets was fuelled.

In 2003, his ongoing study of markets and technical analysis enabled him to become part of the Proprietary Trading Group at Goldman Sachs. Tony was fortunate enough to learn from working with and watching some of the best financial minds in the business. Trading mainly foreign exchange (FX), he posted strong returns on capital, in particular in 2007 and 2008, before leaving the firm in 2009 to transition into FX sales with BNP Paribas (BNPP). He has spent the last five years at Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA).

While at CBA and BNPP, Tony wrote and published the Weekly FX Technical Report containing technical analysis, trade ideas, and opinions. The report earned a strong following from a variety of clients, including fund managers, hedge funds, balance sheets, central banks and large corporates all over the world. 

I personally found it very interesting to speak with Tony and to discover more about the world of an institutional Forex trader and how Tony was able to make his mark in it.

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.
