Hello traders, it has been awhile since I have posted an interview, but I am finally back. Today I have a really interesting interview with Chris Capre…professional Forex trader and founder of 2nd Skies Forex/this hedge fund.
Chris started off wanting to be a Yoga instructor for the rest of his life, but a friend had an intuition that he would be a good currency trader and he turned out to be correct. Chris says that as soon he started looking at the charts, they seemed to make sense to him.
That's not to say that he did not endure some tough times too, but from a very early stage, he knew that he had found his calling.
Even though he was very successful at the beginning, he went through the process of being a broker, then a hedge fund trader, then an independent trader and educator. He never intended to become a Forex mentor, but he was getting so many requests to be taught, that he decided to build a business around it and he started 2nd Skies Forex.
It was interesting to hear about his experiences with students and what makes some successful.
I hope you enjoy this interview and learn a lot from it. Chris is a great guy to talk to and I love the fact that trading has provided him a way to give back to causes he believes in and make the world a better place.

Here is a video from Chris' YouTube channel that I really liked. It talks about having the abundance mentality and how he came to adopt it. I think that this is a key point because successful trading is mostly mental and even if you have the skills to trade well, there may be other factors holding you back.
To practice an abundance mentality and improve your trading, try one of Chris' courses.
