Starting To Trade Professionally With $300,000 – Show Notes

In episode 98 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Michael Melissinos, a trader who started to trade professionally with $300,000 and now trades for over 30 investors from around the world.

Michael accepted to come on the podcast to share with us how he got started trading professionally at a fairly early age as well as how he progressed and convinced more investors to invest in his trading activities.

He is of the opinion that traders are better to start early. Michael ensured that he was ready to trade for other people by doing a lot of work up-front. That's the key for anyone who's looking to trade professionally.

This is a must-listen interview if you are looking to trade professionally and manage money for other people!

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.

In episode 95 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Rauan Khassan, a hard-working Forex trader who has been involved in the market since 2011. Rauan has been through the various steps of successful Forex trading, and has been able to get to a level where he trades other people's money.

In September 2015, Rauan joined TradingView, a leading social trading network that unites more than 1,500,000 traders online, where he oversees regional versions development.

In this interview, we tackle the Rauan's role at TradingView. He has seen first-hand how strong the gap is between being a great analyst and a great trader. His perspective on the currency market and trading other people's money make Rauan an excellent guest to go through how he was able to step into managing money.

If you have a full-time job, this is an episode you don't want to miss!

Rauan explains how he is personally involved in day trading while working at TradingView. He goes in-depth on the topic of reaching our personal trading targets month by month. He shares how he manages to trade both a conservative and aggressive trading strategy. That is a sure way to help you reach your trading goals faster.
