Day Of The Dead – One Year Blog Anniversary

Well – what can be said?

It looks as though I’ll have no trouble “celebtrating in style” here today and through the “Day of the Dead” celebrations set to kick off here in Playa over the coming days  – as we nailed the upside turn on USD literally to the minute. That, coupled with the incredible moves in AUD overnight ( I sent out the tweet, and even put a post together as fast as I could!) has me up an additional 3% and “holding” here as of this morning.

As well the “offical” 1 year anniversary at Forex Kong!

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico.



It’s Halloween on an entirely different level, lasting nearly 3 full days (and even gets an official bank holiday). The costumes, art work and cultural festivities are second to none. I encourage all of you to Google it / have a look online.

So, that’s about it for this morning short of keeping our eyes on reaction across other asset classes as the USD digs in here, and looks to wipe out a serious number of players “still” sitting on the other side.

    I was killing time browsing popular posts of the day on imgur and found this picture of this fantastic costume for Dia de los Muertos. I had to come back here and post it.

    Happy birthday from France. Keep writing!

      Thank Power Corrupts.

    Congrats Kong. I’m not a good trader, pretty new to this, but your guidance helps me a lot to improve. Keep the good articles coming!

    • Forex Kong October 29, 2013 / 8:25 am

      Stay safe then JM – and keep those trades “super super small” while you’re learning.

      This is a skill you’ll be able to take with you for the rest of your life IF! You can stay in the game long enough to learn it!

      Keep safe, keep it small….and in time the big wins will come.

    Happy anniversary and congrats Kong. Have fun at the festival (although as they’re all dead so you won’t fit in! lol) and keep up the good work. You’re a breath of fresh air in an often sour and clueless environment. Cheers and I’ll have a glass of red for you.
