I met Haji Warithu through a Forex trading course that we both went through and until this interview, I had only contacted him via email. We have kept in touch here and there over the years and in a pretty short amount of time, he has managed to become a professional independent Forex Trader.
Before becoming a pro trader, Haji worked on an LNG (liquified natural gas) ship and was out to sea for months at a time. Like many independent traders, he wanted to spend more time with has family and have more control of his life.
Haji lives in Brunei, so I had to be up a little early in the morning to get this interview, but it was totally worth it. Haji will be coming out with a book on how to become a successful Forex Trader, so keep an eye out for that. I will review it here as soon as it becomes available.
This is my first podcast and I already have a few more pro traders lined up, so stay tuned for the next episodes! I did this interview on Skype and the connection wasn't the best, so there are pauses at times, but it is a great look at what it takes to trade for a living.
