Which Historical Figure Would Make a Great Forex Trader?

I’ve been thinking about this for a while… I mean there are so many amazing and interesting historical figures and it makes me wonder how they would fare in trading currencies if retail forex trading existed before.

You have great generals, scientists, philosophers, and political figures in the past such as Alexander the Great, Socrates, and Einstein. Albert Einstein They’re known for their outside-the-box thinking, which, in my opinion, is probably one of the most important qualities you need to have in forex to really make it.

I mean look at George Soros and Warren Buffet. These people basically saw things that others people didn’t, similar to the historical figures that I mentioned.

Personally, I think Albert Einstein would do well in forex. Einstein was a scientist, which meant failed experiments were something he was used to. In forex, you have to learn how to accept losing before you can really become profitable.

Also, in order to come up with his great theories, he had to venture into the unknown and deal with all the uncertainties that come with it. That’s like forex trading in a box!

Anyway, that’s just what I think. What’s your opinion? Hit me up with your ideas through Twitter (@Loonieadventure) and Facebook. You can also write in the comment box below. Don’t forget to tell me why!

    I mentioned him on Twitter and I’ll do the same here.  Giovanni di Bicci de’ Medici.  Medici Money by Tim Parks is a great read for FOREX traders.

    I’d like to see a Zen master, or someone like Bodhidharma have a go at it.. supposing he was even interested. Someone completely at one with their emotions and able to “see things as they really are..”
