// About Me
My name is Etienne Crete (from Montreal, Canada). I’m a swing Forex trader and help aspiring Forex traders develop a trading method that works for them so they can produce income allowing them to live with more freedom.

What you must know: I’m all for trading foreign exchange, but I think freedom is much more important than time spent in front of your computer.

I blog at and host the Desire To Trade Podcast. I was fed up with the “fake” millionaire traders and the “get-rich-quick-trading guys”. That’s why you can expect more free content from me than what other people charge for!

If you truly want to succeed in Forex trading, I believe you need to keep working on yourself so you can improve your strengths, but also your weaknesses. Do not focus solely on what you’re good at.

This video expresses my personal opinion only. Forex trading is risky. Make sure you are ready to trade. Even this will not guarantee you positive results. I am not responsible for any losses incurred due to your trading or anything else. I do not recommend any specific trade or action.

Capital markets are a big scam. The market allways go against retail traders, forex also. When i see dow jones at record high, and i try to enter in that trade the martket allways put me out. Why? Because i am a small investor, a outsider of the system. They want people like me to win. Why any assets that i buy or sell go allways against me? This is not bad luck this is manipulation. Only rich peolple win, this is a big scam. Those guys should be in prision. This video is a joke. Any method that retail trader use don’t work, the market go allways against. If regulation works capital market should be forbiden. You better spend your money in whores, wine. Don’t make your life a shit because capital markets. you will be a looser forever? Believeme. This is a advise for those who want to begin trade. Forget this shit or you will be a slave og rich peolple. You will work and save for them.

Malkeet Singh says:

Its huge amount in India as well. Because small workers in India only able to earn approx. 200 Dollars per month.

Dan Lewis says:

5K most and you can live comfortably. 25-50K is not necessary to start. If you don’t know what you are doing. You will lose that anyway. Trade with the trend

Maurice Tatiano says:

25k to make 500$ a week? Which kind of trading is that? People are making 500$ a week with 3k or even less.

Fernando Costa says:

Forex market is rigged. It should be forbiden. There is no method than one could use to make money. Since you send money to a broker he only cares to steal it from you by moving the market against you. How he does that? They have acess to information that you don’t have, they and the big guys act toguether with millions of dollars to move the market against retail traders. Retail traders are the fools in this rigged game. At this poin GBPUSD trade around 1,41. I garantee you that if you, as a retail trader enter long with a hiden stop loss at 1,35, and a hiden take profit at 1,47, the market will move first to less than 1,35 all the times you do that. If you put a short it will go to 1,47, before 1,35. When people give lessons on forex is because they want to make money not by trade, because they now that only will loose, or they work for brokers. CUT LOOSES AND LET RUN THE PROFITS, they say. What??? The only thing you will be able to do is cut losses because the profits will never run. Brokers are social xenophobe. They only let win rich people. You think they live only with comissions, spreads and rollovers? That’s a lie. They are paid to move the market against retal traders. The IRS shoul investigate the emploiers and see if the there patrimony is consistent with the wage.

Cosmic Surfer says:

Fuk Islam says:

It’s impossible to say what you are going to make a can have a massive account and be the best trader in the world. .if the market doesn’t move your not earning

Jack G says:

Oh ok. So u taking about the account size but not a strategy? Come on if I have $25000 in my account I don’t need any strategy from any expert to make that sort of money every day.

Alexander Everett says:

how many hours would i be working a day to make this much money of a 25,000 account?



Firebay says:

U need a account size of 100k minimum bro

Realestate Investor says:

He’s a complete IDIOT…. anyone can make $100 a day if your trading with a $25K acct. $100-$200 that’s not even 1% of $25K.
We want to know how to make $100-$200 a day trading with a smaller acct like $500 or $1000 to start…

Jo Wolf says:

hey Etienne, instead of getting a loan from investors, cant a trader leverage up thier account 3:1 margin with a 10k account , and obviously trade responsibly. what do you think?

Martian Vee says:

stop lying to people you dont need a 25k account to make 500 a week wtf lol

Mike Prentice says:

Very very well done! Reasonable and responsible!

hunter logan says:

So how do people make this 100 or 200 a day, You told us to get others money not what to do with it!! lol

hack tech says:

You can literally start with $100 to make more than $1000 per week it all comes down to risk management and your consistency profits

Aindriu Mac Giolla Eoin says:

Are you consistent Etienne ?

Mark Patjowls says:

Hey Etiene what’s the worst drawdown you experienced in your account with a strategy which has a 2to1 or 3to1 risk-reward ratio? That would be interesting to calculate the account % to risk on every single trade.

Alex L says:

100% growth in a year? i do that in 2-4 weeks…. this video lowers expectations so much.

anthony carlin says:

I was thinking personally about 30/40k minimum to start trading full time and make a living as a retail trader, but i suppose you could start with 1k and over leverage until you get to that amount then tone it back but then again doing that will create bad habits long term. It’s just getting a spare 30/40k to put into an account is the problem unless someone leaves you money behind when they pass or you were already rich, but for 95% of us basic humans working corporate jobs finding the time to save that sort of money and time to actually trade is impossible. I traded for two years on a demo account to build my skills then i made 73% first year on a $700 starting account 🙂 So i know i have the skills and ability because on a lets say 50k account that would of been around 36.5k 🙂 Thats an ok income dependant on were you live in the world. So one day i will get to that then compound from there 🙂 So i take it you are a swing trader with only 4 trades per week? see for me I incorporate both swing trades and day trades, as personally a set up is a set up no matter time or level 🙂 i average about 3/4 trades per day. But each to their own 🙂

Daniel Bowker says:

If i had 25k i wouldn’t need to trade, so elitist

Noaman Saleh says:

Please make a better video.

Andi A says:

100 US /day 2000 us /mo out of 25 K is return of 8 percent per month? what is your position sizing per trade and how many trades do you do in a month?

Paul Peace says:

I’m a long term trader , I calculate per 4-6 weeks divided by days. It easier to make. I

FX Atom Pro Review says:

Curtis Jeudy says:

Just one of the ways to make $100 to $200 a day

Jerrell Williams 1 says:

0.01 lot for every $1000,,,, $10,000 account size,,,100 pips a day.

Hugo chef says:

Must be a genius !

Marc Hershey says:

so you’re saying on average only 2% a day is profit?

Scorpio Indigo says:

You don’t need an account size of 25k for that…that’s super super conservative and not necessary .you can do that with $1000 if you know how to trade

jay singer says:
