Recent Travel Highlights: Philippines – Photos Are Finally Out!

Last month, I went for a short trip to the Philippines, firstly to Manila as an invited guest speaker at the Traders Fair Expo, before making my way down to Pico De Loro for some sun and beach. 😀

Currently, I am on a 1-month road trip in the US, and I will be sharing more insights and photos once I am back!

Along the way, I will be sharing some nuggets of wisdom on trading and investing on FB live: https://www.facebook.com/synapsetrading/

Invited to Speak in Philippines at the Traders Fair & Gala Night

This coming weekend, I has been invited to speak at Philippines (Manila), and to take part in the Gala Dinner.

I will be sharing about my trademark “15 minute strategies”, and how they have helped me maintain my consistent returns while travelling across 50+ countries.

And after the event, I might also be taking a few days off to tour the area, so do drop me a PM if you are around the area!

Thank you Finexpo for the invitation! 

Recent Travel Highlights: Dubai, South Africa, Lesotho – Over 3,000km by Road!

Last month, I embarked on a 2-week trip to Dubai, South Africa and Lesotho, and  it was truly a unique experience, especially driving over 3000km in 2 weeks, trying out the shark-cage diving, riding an ostrich, and doing a self-drive safari.

And the best part was that by continuing to trade 15 minutes a day, I managed to make a tidy 5-figure profit during these 2 weeks of travelling, which was more than sufficient to cover the cost of the whole trip! 😀

Here are some photos from the trip:

Good luck, and see you in 2 weeks for our very first “Trading Foundation Program (TFP)” intake in 2017! 😀

Recent Travel Highlights: Ireland, Iceland, UK – Photos Are Finally Out!

In October, I embarked on a 2-week trip with my sister to Ireland, Iceland and the UK, and it was an amazing trip! 😀

In 2 days, I will be going for another 2-week trip, this time covering Dubai, South Africa and Lesotho. (Yes, this is a country!)

Of course, I will continue trading as I travel, and continue supporting my students and traders. Stay tuned for my next “weekly market highlights” video which will be shot in South Africa!

5 Practical Tips on How to Trade on the Go (With 15 Minutes a Day)

After trading and travelling to 48 countries across the world, I realised that it is actually not very difficult to trade on the go, since in most countries you can get wifi or buy a data plan, so as long you have your mobile phone, you can easily place trades as you move along.

Here are some useful and practical tips I have picked up along the way:

1. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD INTERNET CONNECTION

This is a no-brainer, as the last you want is to be left handing with no internet after entering some trades, and not being able to input your stoploss and targets. Don’t forget to take full advantage of Wifi hotspots at hotels and cafes, or even better, purchase a local SIM card and data plan.

If you have intermittent access to the internet, perhaps because of flights, then make sure you always have a stoploss in place for all your trades.

2. FOCUS ON A HANDFUL OF SETUPS AND PRODUCTS

Since you don’t want to spend too much time browsing the markets, it is a good idea to prepare a simple watchlist beforehand. For me, I usually focus on about 20+ forex/commodity pairs, so that I can scroll through all of them quickly in a few minutes with my mobile phone to look for any good trading opportunities.

And since I won’t be taking many trades, I can choose the best of the best trades, which means that I can focus only the very best setups that I see. When you see an AWESOME setup, it should jump out of the chart and right in your face, and you should feel the rush of adrenaline and excitement to take the trade. If you have to squint at the chart and think thrice about whether it is a good trade, then I would suggest you just let it go.

3. USE A LARGER TIMEFRAME TO PLACE YOUR TRADES

If you are on the move, then obviously you won’t have time to be staring at the charts all day, which means you should not be using smaller timeframe charts like the 5-minute or 15-minute charts. Actually, I won’t recommend using anything less than a 1-hour timeframe.

By using longer timeframes (1-hour, 4-hour, daily), it means that you only need to check the charts at very infrequent intervals, such as every hour, every 4 hours, or once a day. This way, you do not have to constantly worry or stress about your positions, because your stops will naturally be wider (and your positions smaller), so you do not have to worry about the smaller market fluctuations.

4. DO NOT SPEND MORE THAN 15 MINUTES A DAY

Since you do not have to constantly monitor the market, this means that you only have to periodically check and update your positions. You can easily do this by utilising the “wasted” pockets of time that you have throughout the day.

For example, when you are waiting for a bus/taxi/mrt/plane/train, or waiting for your ordered food to arrive, instead of playing some mindless mobile app game or reading random articles of facebook, why not open up your trading app and place some trades instead? This way, you can make some additional income with your spare pockets of time.

5. LEVERAGE ON A GOOD NETWORK OF TRADERS

Lastly, by leveraging on other good traders, I can learn from their trades and hone my skills as a trader.

I will be back in Singapore in about another week, and I look forward to seeing you all at my next “Trading Foundation Workshop”, where I can share more about my travel adventures and some of the trades I made while travelling.
