Rob Colville: Successfully Swing Trading Forex & Looking At High Timeframes
In episode 50 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Rob Colville, a Forex trader using a method to trade higher time frames and maximize his lifestyle. He is the man behind the site The Lazy Trader. I came across his site and wanted to connect after seeing his philosophy on life and trading.
Rob trades exclusively on the daily and weekly time frames. He looks for several types of trades and does not care so much about trading. His goal is to have the life he desires first.
An important topic discussed during this episode is the importance of not setting your expectations too high. The #1 goal of a trader is to preserve the capital and the secondary goal is to trade. For a newer trader, the essential goal consists of not losing money. Then, over time, it is more acceptable to aim for a certain return.
