My boy is a decade in today. I’m incredibly proud of the big boy he’s become and the fine young man he is becoming.
Hi Lydia. I was thinking of moving to FXCM for my trading, but it seems you have some issues with them. Can I ask what they are. My reason for looking at them is the wonderful analysis from the dailyfx team. My current broker does all the GBP crosses but the spreads are wide, and they insist on high minimum stop losses (80pips in GBPAUD).
Hi Andy! Yes, I have issues and they stem from my experiences with FXCM. The DailyFX team is cool. I “met” Kathy Lien and Boris Schlossberg when they worked there so I agree with you there. But their trading platform is quite another thing and I would never recommend them. I won’t rehash all the reasons why. You can read my thoughts here and here. And here is how I suggest you find the best broker for you. An 80-pip spread on $GBPAUD is high. Get out of there.

Definitely one of my most favorite books of my childhood. I love Sesame Street.

“Great traders focus on the two things they can always control: when they play and how much they bet.”
- Brett Steenbargervia Thought of the Day… | 50’s Blog Yes! I don’t play every day. And I’m ok with that. I think there is a lot of pressure on traders to trade every day. There’s an expectation that everyone is in the market so I have to be too. But I don’t have to be. And some days I don’t trade. I didn’t trade yesterday’s big drop in the pound. And that’s okay. New day. New pressure. New charts. New work.
Zimbabwe’s central bank has announced it would accept the Chinese yuan and three other Asian currencies as legal tender as economic relations have improved in recent years.
"Trade and investment ties between Zimbabwe, China, India, Japan and Australia have grown appreciably," said Charity Dhliwayo, acting governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe.
Exporters and the public can now open accounts in yuans, Australian dollars, Indian rupees and Japanese yens, Dhliwayo said. Zimbabwe abandoned its worthless currency in 2009.
It accepts the US dollar and the South African rand as the main legal tender. Their use has helped to stabilise the economy after world-record inflation threw it into a tailspin.
Independent economist Chris Mugaga said the introduction of the Asian currencies would not make a huge difference to Zimbabwe’s struggling economy.
"It is Zimbabwe’s Look East Policy, which has forced this, and nothing else," he said.
President Robert Mugabe has sought to boost economic relations with Asia after his relations with the West came under strain over his policy of seizing white-owned farms.
Chinese investors have over the past two decades entered diamond mining, construction and retail sectors in the south-east African country.
Who says you have to have your own? Let others bear the cost and effort of maintenance. Accept multiple coin. Stabilize your economy.
My 5 Year blogiversary
Tumblr tells me faithmight.com is 5 years old today. That’s kind of epic. I didn’t realize I started to blog in the new year of 2009. That year the market would bottom but at the new year stocks were still moving lower. I was tweeting trades and saw the blog as a way to post charts. You couldn’t post pictures to Twitter back then. 5 years later, the charts have moved on but the posts on whatever catches my fancy are still popping up here. Moving the charts to their own domain led me to pivot careers right when I was on the fast track for a college professor. I saw it coming but never saw it coming like this. With faithmight. Dot com. And so it is. These 5 years I have changed so much. I’m doing things now I said I would never do. I am living this life out in some ways are a surprise to me. I’ve come to find out that that’s all a part of growing up.
I am actually taking one of the biggest risks of my career right now. The timing couldn’t be better. Yet some days I’m scared out of mind. To point that my heart has jumped out of my chest and into my hand. And I keep moving forward. Sheryl Sandberg calls it leaning in. And I’ve been leaning for 5 years. Now may be the season that it all comes together. Exciting times!
When Jesus came to earth, He brought with Him everything you need to be empowered to live a life of victory. He came as a little baby, but He represented all authority in heaven and earth. When you choose to serve Him, you have access to all of His resources. You have access to His peace, power, authority, provision, joy and strength. He brought all of this to us when He came to earth. Unto us a child is born…unto us victory is given. Unto us, peace is given. Unto us, provision is given. Unto us hope and healing are given. Unto us eternal life is given!
Whatever you need today, remember, when Jesus came into the world, He made a way for every one of your needs to be met spiritually, emotionally and physically. Surrender your life to Him and receive all the spiritual blessings He has in store for you!
The Reason for the season. Let us rejoice!
