091: Grinding Daily Profits In The Market - Mike Tedeschi

In episode 91 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Mike Tedeschi, a day and swing trader running a portfolio as well as a trading chatroom. At the time of the interview, he has been trading for himself for over 6 years. Mike looks at the investment world through a contrarian lens. By going against the herd, he positions himself to achieve the largest possible returns in the quickest time frame with the least amount of risk. One of the topics we touch on is the need for a trading plan. Mike, like me, has also been developing a trading playbook that contains multiple trading strategies he uses on a daily basis based on how the market moves. We also touched on the topic of trading alerts. As the main takeaway, you can make money in the market without being involved in the market at all times. There are times when the market isn't producing anything worth trading and that is where you need to be able to step away. There are absolutely no reasons to go in the market when there are no trades. 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. Share This! Top Quotes From This Interview "Prices are never too high to begin buying or too low to begin selling" -Jesse Livermore "If you can't make money on the leaders, you can't make money in the market" If you treat trading like a hobby it's going to pay like a hobby. There are no reasons to go in the market when there are no trades. In This Episode, You’ll Learn… How Mike started to trade from Japan The types of mistakes traders make at the beginning The 3 most important aspects of trading How to overcome the fear of losing money The analogy of flipping a coin in risk management EXACTLY how Mike trades intraday and swing How Mike uses a trading plan, playbook, and checklist The types of behaviours that are costing most money to traders Why Mike doesn't give that much importance to backtesting Why you can't rely on news to trade at all times Why you can't look at the market as an ATM How to avoid trading all the time - how to use alerts like a pro!

190: Anyone Can Trade For A Living - Ray Barros

Anyone Can Trade For A Living In episode 190 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I sit down in Hong Kong with professional with fund manager Ray Barros in Hong Kong 1 year after our initial interview. A lawyer by profession and training, Ray gave up his lucrative law practice in the 1980s to focus on his first love – trading. His initial attempts at trading failed miserably and he suffered heavy losses. But, after making all the mistakes in a trader’s manual and then some, Ray finally hit on a trading approach that gives him the market edge. This approach has proven effective in both trending and congested markets, allowing him to trade profitably and consistently. Thereafter, he was highly sought after by major banks to manage their funds. At the same time, he was also very much sought after as a trainer to train other institutional traders based on the strategies and techniques he developed. In the early 1990s, he became an outsourced FX Trader and this gave him the flexibility to focus his next great passion – teaching. Signup for the upcoming exclusive webinar!

154: 5 Successful Trading Mindset Challenges (scale to $10,000/month) - Mandi Pour Rafsendjani

Successful Trading Mindset Challenges (scale to $10,000/month) In episode 154 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I am bringing back full-time day trader and psychology coach Mandi Pour Rafsendjani. We talk about 5 mindset challenges that people face when they want to scale their trading to $10,000 a month. This is a big number and it’s a goal that a lot of people want to achieve. I have seen these mindset challenges for myself that I had to push them away over time. They didn’t change in a day, they didn’t change in a week, but I had to work on those. If you aspire to get to the $10,000 mark per month, this is exactly what you have to work on. I encourage you to listen to this carefully and make some notes on what you have to work on, then listen back in, let’s say, three months from now (90 days). Ask yourself what have you done, what have you improved on, and what can you work on. That will be amazing and that will be a great way to get value from this.

He’s the man behind 2ndSkiesForex. I personally consider Chris as a leader in the trading industry. What’s more, he created a useful framework that any trader can follow to see results in trading.
