Off to Forex Trading Show




Light blogging this weekend, as I am off to the Forex Trading Expo in Las Vegas tomorrow and Sunday, September 15 and 16, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

I have been shows, but never one this size. My speech is on Sunday during the Keynote speakers session.

Here is the official blurb:

"One weekend in September can greatly accelerate your learning curve and give you the skills and knowledge you need to make consistently profitable trading decisions. On September 15-16, 2007 in Las Vegas, the Forex Trading Expo will once again bring together thousands of the most dedicated traders in the country to learn what works for successful currency speculators."

Note that the focus is on Currency Trading. I plan to discuss some of the psychological aspects of Trading and variant perception . . .

My first trip to Las Vegas!

    While you’re at it Barry, if you have a few extra bucks in your wallet, you might pick up a couple of distressed Vegas condos.

    btw, there’s no “currency speculation” about it; the dollar is going down against the Euro, Pound, and Canadian dollar.

    Ah, what the heck. Blow the wad and put $10 on black for me.

    FIRST trip to Vegas?

    As far as Mrs. BP knows, right?… lol

    I like Mon Ami Gabi restaurant at the Paris…
    See the Bellagio’s gardens if you can…
    The SW steakhouse at the Wynn is pretty spectacular too.

    Don’t speculate with too much currency!

    I remember when Mandalay Bay was an independent public co. Good company.

    One weekend is all it takes to make consistently profitable trading decisions?

    Wow – and I wasted my time reading all the “apprenticed investor” articles… :)

    Yes in one quick weekend you too can demystify the ENTIRE FOREX system that has taken people who have vastly more experience than anyone on that panel for a ride.

    These seminars are popping up with an alarming regularity.

    “Yes I am sooooo successful that I am at a Holiday Inn on a saturday afternoon in Lincoln, Nebraska waiting for the next round of “investors” to appear while I eat the last of the cracker packages I stole so I could eat”

    But I have a “system” that is proven to make you money….

    Mandalay Bay has a decent dance floor very central on the main floor. Boggie a bit while you are there!

    If you have a car drive west. Drive west some more. Then drive west. Doesn’t matter which street you take. Look around. Seen enough? You could drive some more and not see anything different. Now remember three things. No matter what anyone tries to tell you about the economy it is three things. Subsidized water, subsidized electricty and gaming (the spam filter won’t accept the correct term). Now, overlay what you know about a housing bubble, liquidity cruch and their local home price history.

    Pinch Kathy Lien’s cheeks for me.

    I’ll see you there.

    The Forex is a beast I am slowly tiptoeing up towards.

    You should drive out and see Lake Mead. Breathtaking. Maybe even rent a watercraft for a few hours. Crossing the Hoover dam can be a traffic nightmare though, so stay on the Nevada side.

    >> I like Mon Ami Gabi restaurant at the Paris…

    Jmay, I’ll second that motion.

    Barry, I’ll repeat an earlier recommendation. If you haven’t seen a Cirque show (in any of several casinos) in person, please do.

    Penn & Teller (at the Rio) are great (though in the two times I saw them over a several year period, I remembered some of the same acts).

    No, I’m no Vegas regular and haven’t seen much there. So, I can’t say these are the “best” shows to see. But, I enjoyed them a heckuva lot.

    What happens in vEgas stays in Vegas.

    The forex markets are a true electronic or over-the-counter exchange. There is no physical or central forex exchange location. The forex market is comprised of a global network of banks, corporations and individuals who are buying and selling currencies 24 hours a day, except on weekends.

    Forex trading follows the sun around the globe. The most active exchange centers are in Tokyo, Singapore, London and New York. When Asian trading session ends the European session begins and when the European session ends the North American session begins and so on.
