Etienne Crete is the founder of Desire To Trade, a trading education website. Before he became a founder and full-time trader, he worked a job he hated and searched for a way to generate income while devoting time to his love of traveling.
His success came about thanks to his adherence to routines and systems designed to help him improve his skills. Etienne is our guest this week on Limit Up! and talks to Jack and Dan about one of his most important tools: old fashioned journaling.
Listen to the episode for Etienne’s story and learn how you can make algorithms and strong routines work for you.
He began trading in 2013 at the age of 18 and started surrounding himself with highly successful traders in 2015. This led him to taking the leap to full-time trading in 2017. He has since been trading while traveling and connecting with traders all around the world.
