This week looked absolutely miserable outside Currensee World HQ in Boston. And depending on which piece of news or commentary we were reading that day, the economic climate wasn’t looking much better. It seemed like every article I read heeded a warning about the doomed Euro or a tanking USD. As much as I like to dwell in my own self-loathing over my downright pathetic Forex account, sometimes enough is enough. Which made me realize, as traders (and people in general), when we’re in a particular mood or funk we seek news and information that mirrors our tone – happy or crabby.
So here’s a roundup of links that caters to every mood swing that went on this week.
If you’re in a doom and gloom mood, we’ll let you sulk for a little longer:
- The ultimate Forex-”diss”: you’re trading system is just fine – you’re the problem. Wicked burn.
- Remember 2008? (As if you could forget.) Let’s relive that moment, and what progress has been made since.
If you want to think happy thoughts, here’s some feel-good bits:
- Apparently, there’s an anatomy to a bullish market. Here’s what to do and how to capitalize on each part of it.
- Here’s an interesting take on the relationship between the USD and the US national debt. (Hint: debt-dollar link may not be what you think.)
And if you don’t know what you’re thinking:
- Durable goods are selling, new homes aren’t, and the USD is lost in the shuffle.
- The consensus seems to be that there’s a “new normal” economy. Don’t take our word for it – you can read about it everywhere, in the good ol’ Journal and in commentary from Currensee members.
We’re big fans of off-kilter Forex news and trivia around here, and get the hunch that some of our members may share our off sense of humor. We recently came across an article about having super-tricked-out work (or trade) station and how it helps or hinders productivity. Now, we know Currensee members are serious about Forex – why else would you trade together? So we want to see your trade station – where the magic happens, where you are last pip standing, where 95% cry themselves to sleep every night. Post photos of your Forex Fortress to our Facebook wall. We can’t wait to see them!
