Wow! What an interview. Fresh off 2nd place at the Forex Trading World Cup, I get a chance to interview former guest, Scott Welsh, on his journey from 2017 to 2021… and everything in between.
A former student of my Robot Builders Club, Scott used his automated strategies to take his competition account to over 78% return during the year long competition.
With soo many gems in this interview, it’s a “must listen”. His holistic approach to the competition was where I found the most insight, and I’m sure you will too.
Remember to check out Scott’s video after the interview, as well. He share’s with us a “no brainer” way to get in at the start of a trend.
