Traveling and trading around the world, your help is welcome

Hi everyone, I am from Quebec, Canada and I am planing a trip around the world with my girlfriend starting in may 2016. My first destination will be Ireland then Spain and then I will decide where to go, my goal is to go east until I am back in America.

I'm bringing a laptop in my backpack and my biggest dream would be to trade around the world and earn money doing so. I've tried forex in the past without success, now I am trying very hard to develop a scalping strategy on the NQ, and I am learning to trade stock as well, I had some good profit on Canadian stocks in the past months (don't know if it's beginner's luck!) .

My biggest passion is to travel, I've discovered more than 25 countries since 2010 backpacking on a tight budget. My second passion had become trading, I spend a lot of time reading and developing strategies since 3 years but unfortunately I've lost much more money than I won. I am quite stubborn, I know I will succeed in the future, I just don't know how long it's gonna take...

Feel free to give me some advise or to share some similar experience. I would be glad to meet other traders around the world or online so send me a private message if you're interested (English, French or Spanish).

Merci!

I wouldn't do it. Hostels are hectic and have intermittent connectivity. I think it's already disruptive to be trading while you're traveling in business hotels where you can get room service and a peace of mind when you're concentrating. I find it more disruptive if you're traveling for leisure. Depending on what you choose to trade, it could be during an awkward time zone relative to the location you have traveled to, and your girlfriend is not going to see it as a romantic part of your trip because it involves a huge time sink

Thanks for the advise, my plan is not to trade in hostels and coffee shop, I will be volunteering in some projects and we will be hosted by local people using Couchsurfing so I will most of the time trade on a home connection. I'm not concerned about time zone, I can trade anytime in the day. I intend to trade only from Tuesday to Thursday, I don't have good results on Monday and Friday and my girlfriend is aware of all that!

Nicolas Darvas traded while travelling and considered that a key part of the reason for his success. I find a lot of his thoughts / ideas are still relevant today.
