James Harte: A Forex Swing And Day Trader Shares Pieces Of Wisdom

In episode 53 of the Desire To Trade Podcast I interview James Harte, a Forex trader based in England that has a passion for helping others. Through Little Fish FX, he aspires to democratize the foreign exchange market by providing high quality educational materials, pro trader analysis, trading strategies and market-leading tools & indicators to retail traders of all experience.

James has a good understanding or both swing and day trading. This is particularly interesting as he says not having a preference between those two styles of trading. Somehow, I feel the same.

We've had the chance to discuss several topics in this podcast episode, including James' best and worst trades as well as the mistake he sees traders make. We also touched on his trading methodology. This is an important part of the interview since any trader must have a solid trading plan.

    Hi Etienne, thanks for the podcast. Once again, an excellent interview. however, i would love to hear some interview with successful retail traders who are not a mentor. I know they are difficult to find and verify their record. but it would be great to hear their stories.

      Hey Sunny! Thanks a lot! I’m definitely looking for all types of traders. The good things with mentors/educators is that they took the time to simplify their message and content.

      I’ve reached out to a bunch of pure traders lately so you should be able to hear their advice fairly soon :)

      All the best!
