"Around The World In 80 Day Trades will be and epic journey produced simultaneously as book and documentary, with live social media updates throughout. "


The route will follow the original version of the passage from the novel but with modern substitutes more suited to financial trading. For instance, Yemen will be replaced with Dubai.

In each location, the local market will be traded, with additional trades executed on peripheral markets like currency pairs and representative company shares. For example, GBPEUR as we travel between the UK and Europe and LVHM in Paris.

There will be 40 opening trades and 40 closing trades (80 total) as knowing when to close a position is almost as important as being long or short.
