Swing Trader Success Story (Becoming A Prop Firm Trader)
In episode 200 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview prop firm trader John Jost, whom I invited to share his swing trader success story.
Are you ready for it?
John is a successful swing trader & chiropractor based in Denver, Colorado. He has now earned a funded account with The5%ers prop trading firm.
His style of trading reflects around price action, major support & resistance zones, longer time frames, good risk management, and minimal to no indicators.
What's was particularly interesting for me is the fact that John has gone through the Desire To Trade Academy. He says it taught him things that he hadn't learned before.
Another course John took is the one from Rob Colville (The Lazy Trader).
So without further ado, let's welcome him on the Desire To Trade Podcast!
