Scaling Up Trading With A Business
In episode 254 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview full-time trader and business owner Siam Kidd. He shares how he's been able to create financial freedom and a great lifestyle through his own trading.
Siam has a very interesting story of how he transitioned into trading and how he had to learn to trade the hard way. Trading the daily chart, Siam Kidd spends a great majority of his time building businesses.
In short, Siam has used Forex trading as part of its other streams of income to become financially independent. His trading takes on from 5 to 10 minutes a day on average, which means that Siam has enough time to concentrate on other interests/passions/businesses.
Throughout this interview, Siam placed a lot of emphasis on the fact that replacing a full-time job with full-time trading is none sense. The goal of Forex trading is to increase the freedom in your life, and Siam Kidd sees trading as a stream of income.
