Master Swing Trading Full-Time Or With A Job

In episode 146 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview day & swing trader Paul Singh who’s from San Diego. You can go back and listen to Episode 118 where Paul tells a very interesting story where he made the transition from part-time to full-time trading. He talked exactly about how he did it.

In today’s podcast, we are going a bit more into his swing trading practices. In addition to mastering swing trading, Paul decided to jump into day trading at some point after going full-time to spend as many activities while running and being responsible for swing trading at Bulls on Wall Street. He has been able to help a lot of traders understand swing trading and do things right which means he’s doing the research beforehand, getting into the market with the proper mindset and executing properly, which is exactly what he shares about in this interview.
