- I trade Forex on several accounts. I also trade on Betfair and I never spend more than six months in any year in the same country. My daughter tells her friends that it's because I like holidays.
The reality is it's part of my tax planning. Gambling is tax free in many jurisdictions but as my main income is from forex I think I have the balance right.
I am English and live mainly in France and Malta. I own Lion Asset Management LLC.
I use a VPS in London with FX accounts there and also in Malta and New York.
I travel regularly on business to Phuket, Jakarta, Singapore, Dubai and London.
I always carry 2 tablet pcs - 1 as a backup which is rarely used. Really to stay in touch using inbound VOIP numbers and, of course, email. I check trading accounts sometimes daily and occasionally only a few times in a month. It really depends where I am.
The VPS also allows me to access sites which are banned in some countries. Many gambling sites for example.
It's a loose PT lifestyle which I like but it's not for everyone.
