“The Uros are a pre-Incan people who live on forty-two self-fashioned floating islands in Lake Titicaca.

The Uros use bundles of dried totora reeds to make reed boats (balsas mats), and to make the islands themselves.

The larger islands house about ten families, while smaller ones, only about thirty meters wide, house only two or three.

The islets are made of totora reeds, which grow in the lake. The dense roots that the plants develop and interweave form a natural layer called Khili (about one to two meters thick) that support the islands. They are anchored with ropes attached to sticks driven into the bottom of the lake.

The reeds at the bottoms of the islands rot away fairly quickly, so new reeds are added to the top constantly, about every three months; this is what makes it exciting for tourists when walking on the island.”

This is no doubt our best HFT (hands-free trading) trade for the month, with over 400+ pips and $5,096 in profits!

We have always taken half the position off at TP1, and I will be gunning for even more profits with my next TP2 at around the 120 zone.

This is gearing up to be one of the best months, and there is probably still time for another monster trade before closing the books.

Stay tuned! 😀

Hint: GBP/USD looks like it might be due for a bullish rebound soon.

“Puno is a city in southeastern Peru, located on the shore of Lake Titicaca.

It is the capital city of the Puno Region and the Puno Province with a population of approximately 149,064 (2014 estimate).

The city was established in 1668 by viceroy Pedro Antonio Fernández de Castro as capital of the province of Paucarcolla with the name San Juan Bautista de Puno. The name was later changed to San Carlos de Puno, in honor of king Charles II of Spain.

Puno has several churches dating back from the colonial period; they were built to service the Spanish population and evangelize the natives.”

“Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level. It is located in the Cusco Region, Urubamba Province, Machupicchu District in Peru. It is situated on a mountain ridge above the Sacred Valley which is 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Cusco and through which the Urubamba River flows.

Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu was built as an estate for the Inca emperor Pachacuti (1438–1472). Often mistakenly referred to as the “Lost City of the Incas”, it is the most familiar icon of Inca civilization.

Since the site was not known to the Spanish during the colonial period, it is highly significant as a relatively intact cultural site.

Machu Picchu was declared a Peruvian Historical Sanctuary in 1981 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983. In 2007, Machu Picchu was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in a worldwide Internet poll.”
