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.

Rob Colville: The Lazy Trader (Higher Time Frame Trading)

In episode 50 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Rob Colville, a Forex trader using a method to trade higher time frames and maximize his lifestyle. He is the man behind the site The Lazy Trader.

Rob trades exclusively on the daily and weekly time frames. He looks for several types of trades and do not care so much about trading. His goal is to have the life he desires first.

An important topic discuss during this episode is the importance of not setting your expectations too high. The #1 goal of a trader is to preserve the capital and the secondary goal is to trade. For a newer trader, the essential goal consists of not losing money. Then, overtime, it is more acceptable to aim for a certain return.

 

 

Topics Covered - Rob Colville

  • Rayner's learning process 
  • The one book that helped Rob
  • The amount of money you need to trade
  • The Lazy Trader's lifestyle
  • How to start trading higher time frames from scratch
  • Using reward and punishments to reach your goals
  • Using visualization to stay in the trading game
  • And much more!

Patrick James: Working On Your Self-Images & Other Ways To Succeed

If this isn't the first podcast episode you're listening to, you certainly know how passionate I am about trading.

Sometimes, however, I like to expand my perspectives and bring guests outside the trading world on the Desire To Trade Podcast. These guests bring unique ideas based on their own field of expertise. So far, I've been greatly impressed by the advice the non-traders provided on energy & fitness. 

And here's one more!

In episode 49 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Patrick James, a charisma expert who shares his best advice on crushing it in life.

The interview started with an off-topic conversation about charisma. Then, Patrick mentioned the book Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz.

Psycho-Cybernetics is all about self-image. According to Maltz, “you will act like the sort of person you conceive yourself to be.”

If you want to ensure you succeed in trading over the long-term, you must not only understand how to trade, but also how to manage yourself. That starts with talking to yourself positively. Affirmations are a great way to change the view you have of yourself. Another very practical advice Patrick proposes is concerns the speed of implementation.

You must decide to take control of your self image, and then decide what you want it to be.

 

What's covered in this episode?

  • What is charisma & why it's important for traders
  • The impact of self-image & how to improve your self-image
  • How to talk to yourself and empower you to succeed
  • The habits that can help you succeed
  • How to use the speed of implementation
  • How to act like the person you want to become
  • How to deal with people who don't support you
  • And much more!

Chris Claflin: A Futures Trader Who Dropped Out of School

In episode 48 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Chris Claflin, a Futures trader and the host of the new Uncharted Podcast. I strongly recommend you check out his podcast. It has a very impressive & uncommon touch to it!

Chris started to trade in College. Learning to trade wasn't an easy task while he was pursuing studies of become a dentist. Soon, however, Chris dropped out of school as he realized he could make more money trading than working in dentistry.

These days, Chris is primarily a trend trader. That means he focuses on entering in the direction of strong market trends, hoping that the trend will keep going. Several traders interviewed on the Desire To Trade Podcast adopt this trading style. What distinguishes Chris, however, is that he often looks to catch up trends within a larger trend. His trades are therefore in alignment.

Question & Cheat Sheet - Chris Claflin

  • How Chris got introduced to Forex trading
  • The danger of Forex scams
  • The basics of trend trading
  • Why Chris isn't a fan or Forex and prefers futures
    • Regulations, barriers to entry & more...
  • What traders should focus on
    • It's about protecting your trading capital
  • And much more!

Ellaine Escueta: Tripling Your Trading Account While You Forgot About It

In episode 47 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Ellaine Escueta, a Forex trader with a passion for trading. She is the women behind Trading Elevated.

Ellaine had no interest for trading at first, but picked up a book about the subject in school. As time went on, she started to get more and more involved and interested in the idea of making a living off Forex trading. However, things didn't work out as planned and Ellaine got discouraged. She stopped trading for a while.

Eventually, she went back to check her account. She realized it had doubled due to a trade that was left open. If only she could do the same thing, she would be able to make money. That piqued her curiosity. She started to get back in trading, took a course, and was eventually able to make a consistent income from Forex trading.
