I released this episode 9 months ago as part of the 52 Traders podcast. It was the last show in that series and left everyone on a cliff hanger.
“What will happen next?!?” (Click here to see the update episode)
I interviewed Swedish trader Göran Carlfors. He’d been a long time listener of the show and finally discovered something that helped him overcome the mindset issues that held him back for years. It also freed up his time, meaning he could easily fit trading into his busy life.
The episode is locked behind the 52 Traders paywall, but today you get to hear it for free!
Well, I have him back on the show next week with Judy, the creator of the POGO system he’s been trading, to find out how he got on over the past 9 months.
Did it finally help him break the back of years of trading frustration?
We find out next week.
But for now… enjoy the final interview of the 52 Traders podcast…
