I hope when you slow down - I suspect you will probably never retire - you consider writing a book on what impact trading has had on your life. I don't mean from a financial perspective either; you could write about the opportunities it has created, how it changed the way you think etc. Would be a very interesting self help / motivation book.

I thought if you had a VPS or a VPN you could trade from anywhere in the world via that? Would just have to consider time difference. If a country deems gambling illegal, where do we stand with trading via remote access back to our country?

This is so far away in my trading journey to be a worry yet but the thought popped into my head :lol: Coming up to a year now of doing this an hour or two most evenings (not ideal as the majority of the good markets happen while I'm at work) but I can feel myself getting closer each and every day. Keep it up newbies and part-timers like myself!!

Is Thailand legal for gambling? I heard different stories from different people
It's picking up women that I had in mind. I'd be surprised if you can't gamble there. I thought China and Thailand were gambling mad?

It's technically possible to trade anywhere with VPS but you need to double check if it's legal in whatever country you're visiting.

I think in Saudi Arabia you might get 100 lashes if you're caught, or if they've updated their laws to fit in with modern times they might cut your finger tips off to stop you from using a keyboard. :lol:

Interesting question re the legalities of it - I probably wouldn't risk it in a place where I could end up being imprisoned or flogged.

In fairness, if It's flogging you are after, there are plenty of places in Birmingham that offer that.

Or so my local Conservative MP tells me.

As a local Wolvo lad I can confirm this to be true :lol: Right next to Birmingham but don't get calling me a bummie! I mean Brummie. Pride of the midlands going into the start of the new prem season ;) Never considered the legalities to my future plan of travelling the world and trading, good food for thought.

I used to have a neighbour who was a dominatrix, I designed her website for her. She told me all sorts of bizarre stories that you'd hardly believe. She also had a client who was an MP but she refused to reveal his identity or what party he was from. I think we can all guess the latter. ;)
