I guess its considered non-financial?
Anyways, for some reason, on Tuesday the USD/CAND shot up to well over $1.30. I just happened to notice it by luck, and jumped on for the best part of the roller coaster ride…going down. So far, its been profitable, and I hope it’s a lot more so by the time I step off this ride.
Just to put things in perspective, I have maybe 1/2% at most of my portfolio in a forex account. No, I don’t know what I’m doing. But I’ve gotten a nice overall return since I jumped in at the start of the covid shut-down. My typical trade is to short the USD against the Canadian when it gets up to $1.29 or higher, close it out when it gets down to $1.26 or so.
