Full-Time Trader Who Makes A Blast In Cryptocurrency Trading ft. 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.

    Great interview. I was engaged the entire time and love when experts such as Houston are not only successful but can articulate their craft with such a level of simplicity. Never knew that crypto was tradable after hours. Perhaps my overnight ES futures have finally found a companion. Nice work!

      Very interesting stuff, Michael! I also learned a lot from Houston. I’m curious to try it out too :)
