    // ABOUT ME
    My name is Etienne Crete (from Montreal, Canada). I'm a swing Forex trader and help aspiring Forex traders develop a trading method that works for them so they can produce income allowing them to live with more freedom.
    I blog at and host the Desire To Trade Podcast. I was fed up with the “fake” millionaire traders and the “get-rich-quick-trading guys”. That's why you can expect more free content from me than what other people charge for!
    If you truly want to succeed in Forex trading, I believe you need to keep working on yourself so you can improve your strengths, but also your weaknesses. Do not focus solely on what you're good at.

    Connecting with banks has definitely helped my trading tremendously. I highly recommend to network with high institutional traders.

    Hi Etienne thanks for the video ...But like "RUcliprs" do, they put big title and they waffle a lot ! I listen your video from time to time, some are not bad some are so so like this one ! Not my favorite ;-) My thoughts on each tip...No1 "Work on your self" This say a lot and nothing at the same time! As in any field you need to learn trading is no execption(books..and after need to try in real) Trading journal (your best friend!) position size the only way to be comfortable to do mistakes ;-) Tip no 2 in this video the best one but here I want to point out something "don't trade" would not mean to be far from the market you need to stay connected with the market or the pair that you work ! Tip no 3 This one as more to see with way of life then trading result in a pure sens.Tip no 4 Remain humble humm again here it is more subjective then objective...and for tip No 5 for me it's a matter of open mind you can learn from everyone if you listen more then you talk ! Ok ok enough talking for me now ;-) With all said keep on rollin !!
    Best regard...

      Because those are my favorite while traveling and I travel around 10 months per year. This will help you save money on hotels:

      Kal LOL!! That’s because he’s living like a BOSS. Next time he should make a video of himself, in a jacuzzi with two chicks, and a bottle of champagne.

    I want to be better than a bank trader but to do that I needed to trade with the banks. I use supply and demand to trade.

      Does supply and demand work for you? Is it profitable?

    E, thanks for that video. can you please do a video on how you decide how many positions you open for a trade?

    • Etienne Crete - Desire To TRADE
      Etienne Crete - Desire To TRADE  4 months ago +1

      Always 2 positions per trade in my case. Risk is split in half.

      @Super Swing Trader thanks for your reply. I am with you on most of what you say. :-) good points.
      hopefully we can also get E's take and discuss further

      @Wolfgang Obinna Gieler I understand your question now. Based on E's past videos he said he uses leverage but he doesn't increase his lot size with it, he uses leverage to take more trades. So essentially you have more money to trade and make more trades but you are still risking your 1% of your account. In terms of exactly how many positions, he will have to chime in on that. In my opinion and trading style, how many positions I take depends on how many A+ setups I see and my strategy and trading plan is very specific which prevents me from taking too many trades and missing some opportunities but at the same time prevent alot of losses. Hope this helps!

      @Super Swing Trader i know lol.

      but that is not the topic. E was referring in a previous video to how sometimes he opens multiple positions for a trade. and i think it is an interesting topic to get into more detail on why and how he splits these positions. based on what does he do that.

      Your lot size is how much you have in your account and what your risk is.
