Ultimate Full-Time Trading Truths & Motivation
In episode 213 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview full-time Forex trader Merlin De Santis whom I met in Bangkok, Thailand and more recently in his trader villa in Bali.
Merlin is a young entrepreneur who started a business when he was 18. He was introduced to forex trading by his friends and since then he was hooked. He sold his business to pursue trading and he now spends most of his time traveling, trading and meeting traders around the world.
His learning path was not easy, while he made lots of money at the start he quickly lost it all and realized the reality of trading. From there he has been working hard developing as a trader and improving constantly, leaving the trading lifestyle.
