How To Win In Currency Trading (hint: not with books)

May 9th, 2017: In this Kuala Lumpur Forex trading and travel vlog, I go around the twin towers in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and discuss how to win in currency trading based on my experience of the traders I’ve seen.

It’s not with Forex trading books that traders generally get results. Books have been written and might not address exactly what you must work on. In this vlog, I provide a better solution than books to win in currency trading.

About Me

My name is Etienne Crete (from Montreal, Canada). I’m a swing Forex trader and help aspiring Forex traders develop a trading method that works for them so they can produce income allowing them to live with more freedom.

What you must know: I’m all for trading foreign exchange, but I think freedom is much more important than time spent in front of your computer.

I blog at www.desiretotrade.com and host the Desire To Trade Podcast. I was fed up with the “fake” millionaire traders and the “get-rich-quick-trading guys”. That’s why you can expect more free content from me than what other people charge for!

If you truly want to succeed in Forex trading, I believe you need to keep working on yourself so you can improve your strengths, but also your weaknesses. Do not focus solely on what you’re good at.


This video expresses my personal opinion only. Forex trading is risky. Make sure you are ready to trade. Even this will not guarantee you positive results. I am not responsible for any losses incurred due to your trading or anything else. I do not recommend any specific trade or action.

    Hi Etienne

    Thanks for your thoughts on how to win in Currency trading.

    You share some great valuable points so I can recommend people to watch your video.

    I see you’re in Kuala Lumpur while doing this video.

    I like the cool twin towers and the beautiful buildings in your video.

    You must like it there since you go back there after two years :-)

    I live in Greenland, but my wife is from the Philippines, so I’ve been in Asia as well. I’ve been in Singapore a couple of times, close to Kuala Lumpur, but I have yet to set it :-)

    I guess most of us have had this feeling you talk about finding a book, and after some time, we see, what we’re searching for is something about the right mindset.

    I’ve have managed to find a few books about it now, but it has taken me years to find.

    Most of what has helped me has been through connecting with traders who are where I wanted to be.

    . . . and now I’m there myself :-)

    Here’s what I thought was most valuable in your blog post:

    “trading books are made for people who want to sell them, and often for people who don’t know what they talk about.”

    For us who both trade and work on in the industry producing content, we are aware of this, but I think many new traders don’t give this any thoughts, and it’s sad because it cause them to lose their hard-earned money.

    I don’t have any trading-related question to ask, but I’m curious what country you plan to visit next :-)

    I’ll give you a share on my social networks :-)

      Hey Jonbert,

      Sorry for getting back a little late..

      Thanks for the comment. I absolutely agree with that! There seems to be a gap between what the teacher/writer/coach’ and student’s desires sometimes. That’s sad since it should be in alignment.

      Right now I’m in Bali and will stay in Indonesia until June 14th. Then, heading to Thailand.

      All the best,

        Hey Etienne

        Thank you for getting back to me.

        By the way, I listened to your podcast yesterday for the first time.

        It’s a great way to learn while engaging in other activities.

        I’m most a book/blog-reader, but recently I began listening to trader podcasts.

        What I like about your podcast is that it gives the education a more personal approach.

        Kind regards
        Jonbert Davidsen
