Traders,

Today I spoke with a woman that was born in Iran, moved to Japan when she was 18 to study electrical engineering, then moved to NYC to work on Wall St.  While in Japan she started doing a conversion between currencies, and at that point she fell in love with the opportunity in trading the markets.  She is now the founder and CEO of Invest Diva, and teaches thousands of people about investing and managing wealth. Her name is Kiana Danial.

Kiana’s backstory is one of my favorites.  She’s the epitome of an entrepreneur and trader in that she takes chances to follow her passions.  Today we discussed her calculated way to determine which investments or markets you should be trading based on your financial situation.  We talked about her strategy that is both fundamentally and technically based to execute her trades.

Kiana gave us some macro insight in the markets that she is currently trading and explains one of her trade setups using Ichimoku clouds.  Speaking with Kiana was not only educational, but a lot of fun.  She is an extremely interesting and smart person who I really enjoyed speaking with and I know you will enjoy her story.
