Adam Grimes: Building Your Edge In Any Financial Market

In episode 60 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Adam Grimes, a stock, futures and currency trader with a formal education as a musician. Adam trades for a living and is also behind his personal blog.

He started in Futures trading several years ago and was over-leveraged.

Adam reminds us that there are countless ways to make money in the market, but that a trader's method must be defined in advanced. While a lot of traders rely blindly on trading psychology, Adam highlights the fact that having a proven system is essential from the start.

During this interview, Adam mentions one thing I have noticed from discussing with struggling traders. Most traders who do not have consistent results haven't even tested their systems but want to believe that their system work.
