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.

Siam Kidd: Trading The Daily Chart & Building Multiple Streams Of Income

In episode 84 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Siam Kidd, a Forex daily chart trader with a passion for building businesses. Siam has a very interesting story of how he transitioned into trading and how he had to learn to trade the hard way.

Today, however, Siam has used Forex trading as part of its other streams of income to become financially independent. His trading takes on from 5 to 10 minutes a day on average, which means that Siam has enough time to concentrate on other interests/passions/businesses.

Throughout this interview, Siam placed a lot of emphasis on the fact that replacing a full-time job with full-time trading is none sense. The goal of Forex trading is to increase the freedom in your life, and Siam Kidd sees trading as a stream of income.

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.

Kunal Desai: Success & Growth Factors In Your Trading Career

In episode 83 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Kunal Desai, a day trader by day and industry leading instructor by night. He is the Founder and Lead Instructor at Bulls on Wall Street and has helped thousands of traders reach their trading goals through his unique live trading courses since 2010.

I enjoyed seeing how passionate Kunal was about trading and helping people. He inspired me to work even harder when he said: "if you want to teach, you must be willing to work harder than your students". 

More About Kunal

Kunal began trading stocks during the Dotcom Boom, experiencing several ups and downs while growing his account and his knowledge of how the market works. It didn’t take very long for him to realize he had a passion for trading, and that he was particularly drawn to the excitement and profit potential of day and swing trading. While he grew his skill set through experience and self-education, it was mentorship under Paul Singh that really helped Kunal recognize his strengths and weaknesses, and develop a trading system that fit his personality and goals. 

After years spent trading and developing a winning trading system, Kunal founded Bulls on Wall Street to teach others how to take control of their financial destinies. It started with a chat room where Kunal could talk about the stocks he was trading and watching, and a series of blogs and videos to provide market analysis. The site grew from there, as Kunal began using his experiences as a trader and teacher to hold webinars and live trading course sessions. After years of trading and honing his system, Kunal created the Bulls Bootcamp, a comprehensive trading course to impart everything he’s learned as a trader and provide the mentorship that was so helpful to him as a new trader. 

Today, Kunal is still trading and teaching. He’s spoken at the Trader and Investor Summit, Traders4ACause gala event, been featured in numerous podcasts, and covered in the Huffington Post, BroBible, and Inc.com. In 2015, he spoke alongside market luminaries such as Peter Brandt, Jack Schwager, and James Dalton.

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.

Be yourself, everyone else is taken!

I'm gonna get better every day, attack the process, and the results will come when they come.

The minute you want the market to do something, it's gonna do the opposite.

  • Why Kunal follows volatility to decide what to trade
  • Why making money doesn't mean you make good trades
  • How Kunal built huge accounts and destroyed them
  • How to be "in-the-game" (in the top 5% of traders) quickly
  • How to spot the big moves in stocks
  • How to spot what's working right now

Miguel Tiexiera: Trading Forex While You Travel

Show notes: www.desiretotrade.com/miguel-tiexiera/

In episode 82 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Miguel Tiexiera, a Forex trend trader and active traveler who has spent years crafting his trading methodology allowing him to trade and travel the world at the same time.

I brought Miguel on the show specifically because he has the knowledge of what is necessary to develop so you can trade and travel at the same time. This is also what I’ve been particularly working on in the past 2 months.

More About Miguel

I opened my first trading account in 1995 and with a few weeks of basic training, I thought I was ready to trade! Within a month I blew my trading account! Realizing my errors; no risk management, lack of knowledge… I still had a desire to succeed as a trader. I then enrolled in The Chartered Market Technician program.

Over the next two years, I completed level I & II. During those two years, I didn’t trade as I had no capital! I spent many, many hours studying charts and the course material. Then in 1997, I got a job as a technical analyst on a forex desk with a bank and so began the next chapter in my trading career. I traded forex and interest rates over the next 12 years and in 2009 I left the bank to do some traveling.

In August of 2014 while on a cycle trip from London to Lisbon I was doing 2 things that I really enjoy, traveling and trading the financial markets using a trend following approach and that is where the name “Traveling Trend Trader” comes from.

I have since learned how to code trading systems and spend time doing research on new trading ideas, doing live broadcasts, writing blogs – all about trading of course and spending time in the DT community in between getting out on my bike and traveling.

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.
