james eaton quote 1

When I read James Eaton’s email it had me intrigued:

“A scientific approach to manual trading (coming from a background as a personal trainer)”

… It had me wondering what he’d come up with.

James is a Forex trader currently based in Spain, but usually in the UK, who’s carved his own path in this industry. Instead of finding someone who is where he wants to be and copying them, he took the route less travelled and did the hard yards.

But it paid off, and you’ll see how in the interview.
