I am thinking of doing a review for the year, but I don’t feel like going through the numbers on the blog this time. There were some major changes in my career, and life and it led to change of my trading style and trading instrument. I left my old job, and I left Singapore. I migrated to Melbourne, Australia taking up a consultancy job. Difference of time zone kinda ‘forced’ me to start looking into currency trading in details. In term of trading profit, yup, this is another positive year for me. The figure is roughly around 10% for the year.
I gave some thoughts about my trading. Trading is something that I really love to do. Maybe it is because, I am still doing it in part time basis. No financial pressure is affecting my trading activity at the moment. I am not sure if I happened to go full time, can I still enjoy the game like I do now? Well, I can’t answer it now. At least, for now, I love this game.
I have experienced the thoughts of ‘I hate my current job’ or ‘I should start trading full time and leave the stupid job’ phase. I believe, most of part time traders experienced this during their trading journey. However, I come to realize that, I love trading the market, but it is not an excuse to leave my current profession. Part time trading can be challenging, fun, profitable, and most important , relaxed. Full time trading is a totally different phase of career, it is a career switch, a life change etc. It requires proven skills, track record and capital. I will do that, when the time comes.
I am in the new country, new culture, new life. There are problems and challenges ahead. But I am sure trading is still part of my life for the coming years.
