Rank #1: EP8 // How Lynette Allen Combines Minimalism, Line Charts And Only One Currency Pair To Trade For A Living

Podcast cover
Read more
Lynette Allen

What I love about doing these Podcasts is finding out the real story behind how these Traders were able to break through and start trading full-time. You rarely hear about these stories, especially if someone is just trading their own account.

A perfect example is today's guest, Lynette Allen. I originally heard about her through Adam Jowett and soon after, I checked out her blog and started following her on Twitter.

The thing makes a blog really interesting to me, is if the author can put a unique spin on a topic. The more unique the spin, the better. Her blog falls into this category.

First off, she had more links to other types of blogs than links to trading blogs. I found that refreshing. In particular, she has a nice list of Minimalist blogs that she follows.

If you don't know what Minimalism is, it is basically a way of living where you evaluate everything in your life and only keep what is essential and what you absolutely love.

She attributes part of her success in trading to this concept. To find out more, check out her recommended sites in the show notes below.

The next things that stood out were that she is young (no, I'm not daft enough to ask her age) and that she trades off of line charts. Interesting…

So I was really happy when she agreed to sit down with me and chat for a bit. Just like the other Traders that I have talked to, Lynette truly loves trading and her story is very inspiring. She is out to prove that you don't need to be old or have a formal education to trade for a living.

I think you will really enjoy this episode!

Note: We did have a slight connection problem, but stick with it because there is a ton of excellent information. 

In This Episode:

  • How Timothy Sykes inspired Lynette to get started in trading
  • The top 2 traits that she feels people need to have to be a successful trader
  • Why she switched from trading stocks to Forex, even when she was trading stocks well
  • The time frames she trades on
  • What she does to make time to test and trade
  • Back testing or forward testing?
  • She makes a living only trading one currency pair, find out which one it is
  • The sign that she got to give full-time trading a chance
  • And more!

Rank #2: EP20 // How Austin Netzley “Retired” At 27 With One Trading System

Podcast cover
Read more

Many people dream of quitting their jobs and trading for a living, but few are actually able to do it. Austin Netzley is one of those people and he was able to do it in a fairly short period of time. Even more impressive is how young he was when he accomplished this feat.

Although Austin does not trade Forex, I had to learn more about his amazing story. So I was happy when he agreed to sit down and talk to me about his experiences.

While he was working at his corporate job, he would trade stocks. Luckily he had a job that allowed him the flexibility to do so. But things weren't working out so well and he kept losing money.

So he finally decided that he needed to either stop trading or really figure it out. This interview will get into what he had to do to get over the hump.

It wasn't easy, but what he produced was a simple and elegant solution to the 9 to 5 grind. You might be surprised at how simple his method is.

But what is equally interesting is what he has decided after his trading success. You will be inspired by this interview because I sure was.

The best part is that Austin shares how you can get started down a similar path.

In This Episode

  • [tweet_dis]How to tell a good system from a bad one[/tweet_dis]
  • The one thing he has to do every day to make sure his system is working
  • How he recommends getting started with automated trading (even if you hate programming)
  • What he plans to do in “retirement”
  • His mission in life after learning to trade
  • And more!

Rank #3: EP25 // The Forex Broker That Trades WITH Customers with Juan Colón

Podcast cover
Read more

Social trading is a bit like communism.

– Juan Colón

I'm really excited to present this episode of the podcast because I believe that this Forex broker has the potential to change how talented independent Forex traders get funded and can go on to trade for a living.

Yes, I said broker. 

Juan Colón is one of the co-founders of Darwinex, a Forex broker, slash investment platform. He is not a trader, but after you are done with this interview, I think you will agree that he and his co-founders are doing a lot for all the independent traders out there.

Traders on the Darwinex platform can setup an account and build a track record and investors can place their money with traders that fit their risk tolerance.

Yes, this sounds a lot like the copy trading sites out there, but it isn't. Trust me, it goes way beyond copy trading…

For one, Darwinex does a lot to protect the trader's intellectual property (his/her trading).

But that's just the start.

I think that they are doing a great job of opening investment funding to independent traders and if you have been wondering how you can get funded, this might be a good alternative for you.

In This Episode

  • Why social trading is like communism
  • How Darwinex separates the good traders from the bad
  • The story behind how Darwinex was started
  • What this means for US citizens
  • And more!

Rank #4: EP23 // How Jarratt Davis Went From Window Washer to Hedge Fund Trader with Fundamental Analysis

Podcast cover
Read more

Jarratt Davis started out just like you.

But he went on become the #2 ranked Forex trader in the world…according to Barclays. 

He learned currency trading on his own and he had no previous experience or education. Like my last guest, his previous profession had absolutely nothing to do with trading.

But his journey wasn't always easy…

He actually “quit” trading several times because he could not find anything that worked. His trading went through the classic vicious cycle of:

  • Learn a system
  • Backtest a system
  • Fail at trading it in the live market
  • Look for a new system

Sound familiar? 

Finally, a chance meeting with a successful stock trader put him on the right track and he never thought about quitting again. In fact, he has several stories of how he met the right person, at exactly the right time.

So it really does benefit you to just start talking to people you meet in your everyday life, because you never know how it might help your trading career.

One piece of information that I found particularly useful is Jarratt's thought process when he is looking to take a trade. It might be very different from what you do, so I would recommend reviewing what he does before he takes a trade.

I hope you find this episode as educational and enjoyable as I did. After the interview, I got to talking to Jarratt for a bit and he seems like a really down-to-earth and mellow guy.

He has traded from all over the world and I hope you are inspired by his story. 

So if technical analysis seems to be letting you down, you might want to take a closer look at what Jarratt is doing.

Enjoy!

In This Episode

  • Why Jarratt sold his previous business
  • Learn how FOMO affects his trading
  • Other ways he tried to make money online
  • How a banner ad on a website changed his life
  • Why talking to random people on the internet can be the best thing for your trading
  • The trading scam that Jarratt lost money in, that convinced him to learn to trade for himself
  • Why he primarily believes in fundamental analysis
  • And more!

Rank #5: EP6 // How Colin Jessup Went From Warehouse Worker to Professional Fund Manager

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to this episode of The Trading Lifestyle Podcast. In this episode, I sat down with Colin Jessup and found out exactly how he went from working in a warehouse to trading Forex for a living.

But that's not all, he has also become a trading mentor and will be opening his own fund soon. We talked about many different topics, but what I found the most interesting was his take on how to transition from a day job to actually trading for a living.

In the interview, he outlines what he believes is the amount of money that the average person will need to be making trading to even consider making quitting their job. He also shares how he did it and when he knew it was the right time to make the leap.

He now trades from his lakeside home in Canada and loves the fact that he his his own boss. This is also an exciting time for him because it is getting ready to open his own fund and he talks about how that is going and why he decided to do it.

What I liked the most about talking with Colin was his down-to-earth personality and practical outlook on trading. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I enjoyed doing it.

If you have any comments or questions for Colin, feel free to leave a comment at the bottom.

In This Episode:

  • Colin names the mentor responsible for making him a successful trader
  • What happened to his account a PFGBest
  • How he started with $800 and no clue what he was doing
  • The two biggest things that he sees beginners doing wrong
  • What he does to constantly improve his trading
  • How his lifestyle has changed since quitting his day job
  • And more!

Rank #6: EP3 // Ex-Olympian Chris Lori And How Sports Apply To Forex Trading

Podcast cover
Read more
Forex Trader Chris Lori

Today I am happy to have on the podcast, professional trader, Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA), fund manager and Forex mentor Chris Lori.  I have known Chris for awhile now and when I first started to trade, he was instrumental in getting me started on the right foot.  Although I have been in contact with Chris via email over the years, I have never spoken to him in person, so I was excited to finally get to chat.

In addition to his accomplishments in trading, Chris also participated in four Olympic Winter Games as a member of the Canadian Bobsleigh Team.  He has won multiple Crystal Globes and World Cup Medals during his athletic career.

As I have written about before, the very first Forex trading course that I purchased was from an “educator” named Aden Rusfeldt.  It turns out that the course was a total scam and I completely wasted my money.

Chris' course was the second education package that I picked up and I was a little skeptical at first and understandably so, based on my previous experience.  But as I went through the first few DVDs, I started to realize that what he was teaching was legit because I could see what he was talking about on the live charts and it make me look at the charts in a completely different way.

To this day, I still believe that his educational material on price action is one of the best on the market, especially for beginning Forex traders.  He trades almost solely on price action and his favorite pair is the AUD/JPY.  I just ordered his course on trading the AUD/JPY and I am interested to learn how he trades it during the Asian Session, which is typically a much lower volatility session.

Chris was in Western Australia during this interview, where he spends a lot of time.  That is the beauty of being an independent professional trader, you can pick up and work from anywhere in the world that has an internet connection.

I hope you enjoy this episode and if you have any questions for Chris, please leave them below!  Also be sure to check out the other interviews in The Trading Lifestyle podcast series.

In This Episode:

  • Find out if he thinks backtesting is worthwhile or not
  • How his athletic background made him a better trader
  • What Chris' father did to help him become a currency trader
  • The age that he started trading and the exact timeline of his trading progress
  • How he built his trading stake
  • Advice that he has for traders who want to start managing money
  • What really exploded his trading results

Rank #7: EP11 // Why (and how) 50 Pips Trades Forex For A Living

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome to episode 11 of The Trading Lifestyle Podcast.  In this episode, I'm happy to present an interview that I did with 50 Pips.  No, he is not a rapper, but he does trade for a living and he mentors traders from time-to-time.

He is also an excellent Forex trading resource to follow on Twitter.  That is how I originally found out about him. He tweets trading tips and levels that he is watching on a daily basis.

This interview was unique because 50 requested that I don't ask the interview questions that I would normally ask.  This is because he was interviewed back in 2010 and many of the basic questions about him were answered in that interview.

So if you want get more on his background, check out the Resources Mentioned section below for the link to that interview on his blog.  That interview is almost an hour long and is also packed with tons of great information about 50 and how he got to where he is.

But since a lot of these question were already answered, this did give me the opportunity to dig deeper into what makes him tick, how he trades and what his experience in mentoring students has taught him.  I think you will find some of his answers surprising.  We both support Kiva, so be sure to check out his Kiva page in the Resources section below also.

In This Episode

  • Why he uses an alias online
  • His opinion on black box trading robots
  • Why he thinks Fibonacci Retracements work for him
  • The most common mistakes he sees his students making
  • What golf has to do with anything
  • And more!

Rank #8: EP13 // Steve From No Brainer Trades And The Only Thing You Need To Remember When Trading

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello traders, I'm very happy to be back with another episode of The Trading Lifestyle Podcast and I was fortunate to be able to interview Steve W. from No Brainer Trades.  If you have been trading Forex for awhile, you have probably heard of Steve because his blog provides traders with a ton of quality free information.

Like several of the other people that I have interviewed before, Steve didn't originally set out to become a trader.  He basically just needed a job and found one as a clerk at an investment bank in New York.  This happened while Steve was still in college and he was actually studying for a degree in business for film and TV.

Being a clerk sparked his interest however and he started learning everything he could about trading. This lead to him becoming an analyst and the rest is history.

He has been trading professionally for about 7 years and has a very no-nonsense approach to trading.  He primarily trades price action and in the interview, he talks about the key factors that new traders really need to understand in order to become successful.

I hope you find this interview very useful.  It is almost an hour long and packed with some great insights into how Steve approaches trading and what he has learned over the years.

So make yourself comfortable, get out your notebook and pour your favorite drink.  Enjoy!

In This Episode

  • Why you want to trade like a cheetah
  • The primary reason for most of his losses
  • His path to a FX desk at a bank
  • Why he was forced to change his trading over the years
  • Where the hidden information is located in the charts
  • Which overused expressions are actually true
  • One of the biggest killers of retail trading accounts
  • What Steve finds the most fun about trading
  • And more!

Rank #9: EP18 // How Reynaldo Soriano Makes A Living Trading 1 Hour A Day

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello and welcome to another episode of The Trading Lifestyle Podcast. I hope you are enjoying your holiday season and are celebrating your successes from this past year.

In this episode, I had the pleasure of  sitting down and talking with Reynaldo Soriano a professional trader and educator in the San Francisco Bay Area. I found him through his Meetup group and I wanted to find out how he became a professional trader.

He was a member of the Australian national Taekwondo team and when you look at his website, sports still play a big role in his trading and teaching. I like how he compares trading to sports, in that both take a lot of work and there is no guarantee of success.

Our conversation covered a lot of really interesting topics like his daily trading routine, his most important value and the one thing that will always overule his mechanical trading setups.

I appreciate how open and honest he is in this interview. He even shared that at his low point, he would go to his parents house to visit a lot. They thought he was there to seem them, but he was really there to get some free food because he had lost most of his money trading.

But like all successful traders I have talked to, he figured out a way to not only improve his trading, but also his wealth awareness, to become consistently profitable.  One thing that I did find surprising was how much he risks on high probability trades. He knows his trades setups so well that he knows which trades have a near 100% probability of working.

I hope you learn a lot from this interviews and enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed doing it. I did have a slight cold, so I apologize for any sniffles in the recording.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them in the comments section at the end…

In This Episode

  • Find out what Reynaldo studied in school
  • Why he holds trading contests
  • Why Forex is the best market to learn trading
  • The role that intuition plays in his trading
  • Why he stopped day trading
  • And more!

Rank #10: EP24 // Joel Kruger: Investment Banker Turned Pro Forex Trader

Podcast cover
Read more

Joel Kruger started his professional career on a path that you might be able to relate to. He initially went to law school and later became an investment banker.

That may not be a common career path, but many people who get into trading come from some sort of high-level profession. So if this describes you, and you don't want to be in that profession anymore, this interview might give you an alternative.

When Joel saw a trading floor for the first time, he was hooked. His career in trading started as a currency analyst and he was eventually able to make the jump to full-time trading.

But it wasn't easy. He admits that even though he knew how to analyze markets, trading them is a totally different story.

There were several times when he wanted to quit. Find out why he stuck with it, what he has learned, the most important trait that he sees in successful traders and much more.

So if you are an investment banker, it's not too late. If you want an alternative to the crazy hours, Joel's story might be an option that interests you.

Enjoy!

In This Episode

  • The biggest problem with the Forex market
  • Why Forex is the best market to trade
  • How to raise money with your trading skill
  • Why the size of your account does not matter
  • Joel's outlook on life and how that determines his trading style
  • Why ADHD can be a benefit to traders
  • And more!
