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!
