I can relate- I trade US markets, and live in New Zealand( where the US market currently opens at 1:30am).

-Flux( anyone using a computer/ cell phone before they sleep should be using flux- google it)

Gl

I've had that flux thing for one day and it already feels better. Thanks!!!

Fish fry,

You ever thought about moving abroad to UK/Europe or Australia/Newzealand? That's one of the beauties of being able trade full time for a living. And also one of the beautiful things about the global alliance between western countries, Migrating with money to an English speaking country is cake. Pete Davies of Jigsaw lives in Thailand, life must be good with that sort of exchange rate.. haha

Hi @minskee,

I have thought often about trading from Thailand. Many great advantages, mostly being able to trade both the US and European markets and not having to worry about the topic of this thread "Sleep"!!!!!! The low cost of living is just as attractive too. But my biggest concerns after talking with several people is the reliability of internet connections and the loss of power. I start my mornings @ 4:30am and try to be finished by noon. Ideally it would be nice to start at the European open but have found it very difficult to do with lack of sleep caused by others in the house that take for granted when I have gone to bed at 7pm. Maybe someone should set up a "Trading Commune" during the week for traders so we can sleep when needed....

Thought about it, but we have a bunch of family and friends here. Besides, my trading partners and I are getting very close to fully automating our setups using a tool we discovered a couple of months ago. So, hopefully, in a few weeks the whole time zone issue will be moot.

All generalizations are false, including this one.

I can't speak for all of Thailand, but I lived in Bangkok for most of last year. Never had any power cuts, and had a 20mb/s cable connection that rarely cut out( Some ISP's offer up to 200mb/s). If you're living in a modern condo and it's been wired up to support a cable ISP then you shouldn't have many issues once you setup your own connection- if it does cut out temporarily then you could easily just tether the internet from your phone.

Things I've found useful:
-Flux( anyone using a computer/ cell phone before they sleep should be using flux- google it)

Gl

Neo1. I trade from 3 am to 4:15, then go back to sleep until ~7:15. I tried flux last night for the first time. I'm pretty sure I got back to sleep faster (usually takes me about a half hour+ or - a bit, but last night I remember very little after I got back in bed).

So, so far so good. Thanks for the suggestion.
