Trader’s Lifestyle Challenge: White Water Rafting + Conquering Mount Kinabalu!

Last night, I just completed a closed door training session for the Synapse Network, as part of our monthly workshops education series, where we went into the intricacies of forex trading and how to spot reversal setups in any market.

And today, I will be heading off to Sabah for a week of adventurous trading, where I will be risking my life while trading (if there is internet connection lol).
Feel free to follow my adventures on social media. 😀

Mount Kinabalu

 

First up, I will be doing white-water rafting at the Padas intermediate course, which I heard occasionally had crocodiles in the murky waters. Here is a video I found on Youtube:

 

Next, I will be attempting to scale Mount Kinabalu, which after some research appears a lot more challenging than I thought.

At 4000+ metres above sea level, there is a high chance of altitude sickness, considering I suffered headaches when I was climbing Machu Picchu at 3000+ metres 2 years back.

In addition, the final ascent is made at night, from 1am to 7am, in pitch black darkness, and the temperature can drop to as low as -3 to 5 degrees celsius. FML.

 

In my last blog post, I mentioned that this month has been pretty decent so far, and just one day of trading has managed to cover all the expenses for this trip.

I’m definitely looking forward to this next adventure as the “travelling trader“, and if I manage to get internet connection, I will be able to continue trading for 15 minutes a day.

Lastly, I will be kickstarting my BRAND NEW & FREE! educational workshops with exciting new content and my outlook on the market for the upcoming months. Advanced reservations are open for a small group of people as seats are limited, and for those who are fast, you can snap up your seats here: http://synapsetrading.com/events/training-workshops/

See you all soon! 😀
