Many of those who are new to trading Forex find they have a new income stream that may allow them to do things they previously thought impossible, like travelling the world. While it’s completely possible to travel and trade at the same time, there are a number of things you’ll want to keep in mind when you head out. Take a look.
1. Book lodging that offers a secure data connection. While you may be able to get free WiFi at a caf© down the street, the simple reality is that you’re probably going to want a connection where you lodge so you can get most of your trading activities done in a quiet, comfortable environment. Your other option is to holiday in a location where you can temporarily rent office space or utilise a local virtual office so you can put in a few hours in that environment, then enjoy your holiday away. A data connection is, obviously, the single most important part of your ability to trade, and it may not be available in all locations, so make certain you ask.
2. Don’t take untested equipment. If you’ve just invested in a new tablet or laptop, now is not the time to test it out with your trading strategy. In the event the software you use isn’t compatible with your new equipment or something goes wrong, you may not be in a spot where you can have it repaired immediately, and that can create an interruption in your trading cycle.
3. Don’t forget to factor in time zones. You can trade anywhere at any time, but your strategy may dictate something entirely different, which can shift things a bit while you’re on holiday. Before you start booking a holiday on some gorgeous Caribbean coastline, think about your strategy and how well it’s going to adjust to changes in your overall routine. You may even want to start making little adjustments to prepare for a much bigger while you’re away.
Trading Forex means a newfound freedom, but that freedom comes with responsibilities, too. Keep those in mind, and you’ll have a great holiday.
