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

Jun 25, 2018

Price Action & Profitable Trading Strategies

In episode 149 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Rolf and Moritz, both of the co-founders of Tradeciety and Edgewonk. While Moritz has been a few times with me on the podcast and on YouTube to talk about different topics, this is the first time for me to interview Rolf, to get a little bit into both what they do and kind of how they deal with things.

In this podcast, we cover topics more in depth, we go more into the lessons they’ve learned and it kind of builds a story on through how people evolve in their trading. Both of them share some great knowledge into this interview. You’ll be able to find out what they work on, what kind of strategies they use, what habits they implement, and what helps them achieve the level of a successful trader. As you know I’ve been recommending Edgewonk a few times in the past, the trading journal that they are both co-founders of.
