It was a pleasure having Steve Ruffley on the show. Especially given the fact that Steve had been away from a few years, topped off by being a New Zealand based trader (making it super easy to find a time for our call).
Steve comes with experience and a CV most retail traders could only dream of. Not only working as a Chief Market Strategies, he’s also written his own trading book and features on the likes of FxStreet regularly.
Now, while I did my best to get the most out of Steve, I’m sure there’s a question or 10 you want answered.
The good news is that Steve has kindly offered to host a series of Q&A’s for the channel… To get your question answered, simply email it to email@example.com.
