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

My name is Etienne Crete, and I love the idea of trading Forex for a living but I was fed up with the non-applicable tips and sayings that get you nowhere. So I created a place where aspiring Forex traders can learn a solid process that will get them results and won’t let them down. The Desire To Trade Podcast has for goal to help you develop Forex trading skills for more freedom. I interview successful traders from around the world. My focus is on providing you with lessons from my personal trading experience and my conversations as I trade and travel around the globe.
