Overview

After a couple of years of trading stocks and commodities privately, I have started personal trading in FX markets in December 2018. This decision was based on 2 factors: (a) restrictions, e.g. minimum holding period, for other asset classes that exist due to my job in trading; (b) the inherent attraction of FX investing being a market-neutral form of investment, or at least more robust to economic cycles, which is complementing my stock investments very well. I am exclusively trading FX on eToro, my profile can be found here.
