Desire To Trade Podcast | Forex Trading & Interviews with Highly Successful Traders

Aug 20, 2018

Every Trader Has An Unfair Advantage!

In episode 157 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Tim Racette, a successful day and swing trader behind the blog EminiMind. Tim is also on a different podcast which I used to listen to before starting my podcast.

He shares his story as a successful trader and highlights several important lessons about success in the field of full-time trading. We talk about goals, challenges, going to full-time trading when you have a full-time job, how to combine the two and a lot, lot, lot more.
