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

Full-Time Automated Trading

In episode 192 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Matt DeLong, an algorithmic trader & business owner to discuss the process of running a fully automated trading business.

Over time, Matt went from being a manual day trader to making returns in the market through the use of algorithmic trading strategies.

While I find interest in the topic of algorithmic trading, I find a lot of value in speaking with people who are in-the-action and executing on their ideas. That's primarily why I wanted to bring Matt on the show!
