Trading forex for a living can make for a pretty stressful life at times. When you consider that it’s your own hard-earned money at risk, each and every decision carries considerable weight. You really can’t get away with anything, and there is rarely a chance that you are able to just “call in sick”, so when the opportunity presents itself to “get away for a day” – you jump on it.
I thought some of you might be interested to see “exactly” where I spend my days when not here staring into the soul sucking eyes of my computer screens.
This is Akumal. This is where you will find me on “pre fed announcement” days ( if you look close I’m just there under the palms in the front right corner). This is where I spend my “off days” swimming with the massive sea turtles snacking on sea grass only a 5 minutes snorkel off the beach. I have never been to Akumal – without seeing these majestic and beautiful creatures. (click for a larger view)
The Markets will unlikely have much to offer me today, and being 100% in cash again offers the rare opportunity to consider “who gives a hoot anyway”!
I encourage anyone who toils daily in the glorious world of finance / investment to “clear your heads” and take the time away “if” you can get it.
