165: Full-Time Trader Making A Blast In Cryptocurrency Trading – Houston Truong
Full-Time Trader Making A Blast In Cryptocurrency Trading
In episode 165 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview full-time trader Houston Truong on the topic of cryptocurrency trading.
He is one of the people that I relate to in trading. He’s been trading full-time for almost the past 5 years.
Houston started the Montreal Traders Meetup, an event I happen to co-organize with him.
For the past few months, he has been pushing me to trade cryptos. He started this almost a year ago and had some success with it. Now, this is something he does on a daily basis and something he enjoys.
So I wanted to get his perspective on how to succeed in cryptocurrency trading; how to start, what to look for, and how to go beyond the noise in cryptos to be able to succeed in the field.
