I met Haji Warithu through a Forex trading course that we both went through and until this interview, I had only contacted him via email.  We have kept in touch here and there over the years and in a pretty short amount of time, he has managed to become a professional independent Forex Trader.

Before becoming a pro trader, Haji worked on an LNG (liquified natural gas) ship and was out to sea for months at a time.  Like many independent traders, he wanted to spend more time with has family and have more control of his life.

Haji lives in Brunei, so I had to be up a little early in the morning to get this interview, but it was totally worth it.  Haji will be coming out with a book on how to become a successful Forex Trader, so keep an eye out for that.  I will review it here as soon as it becomes available.

This is my first podcast and I already have a few more pro traders lined up, so stay tuned for the next episodes! I did this interview on Skype and the connection wasn't the best, so there are pauses at times, but it is a great look at what it takes to trade for a living.

In This Episode:

  • The mentor that Haji attributes most of his success to.
  • How he much money he believes you need to get started in Forex.
  • What to look for when choosing an Islamic broker.
  • The routine that he goes through to start his trading day.
  • What Haji does while he is waiting for his trades to setup that prevents him from taking bad trades.
  • His experience with teaching students and why he doesn't do it anymore.
  • We talk a little about his upcoming book and how he manages to find time to write it.
