Wazzup Pilipinas was actually there not only to cover the competition but we were allowed to compete as well. Three of us participated in the "infotainment" event as the event had two parts: two speakers shared their knowledge about their expertise regarding FX Trading, and the other part was the actual HTH demo competition. 

It was surprising on my part to be included in the top ten during the early minutes of the event because I was actually being very extra cautious of what I was suppose to risk.


Happy Trading Hours (HTH) was sort of a simulation of what its like dabbling on trading technicalities surrounding the foreign exchange. It is a weekly financial event conceptualized to cater for trading enthusiasts. It happens very Friday, during the hours when the financial market moves the most.

The MetaTrader 5 application allowed us to skillfully trust our instincts based on trends and other factors available online. But I also realized we must be ready to make immediate calculated risks.


It is also preferable to be armed and equipped with some cunning knowledge to make it easier to perform a justifiable action. When to buy or sell, how much to gamble with, - these are just some of the things that fascinates me but too geeky to really get used to.

Playing with a huge amount of money is both fun and challenging. Bearing in mind that I will never know if I will win big if my fear of losing even a small amount keeps stopping me to take the risk.

I lost some in the process but I believe it made me wiser and more experienced to be able to make better decisions.

My greatest learning is now I know what to be cautious of, and what to watch out for a world where only the daring ultimately survives.

Thank you to Abigail and Ivan for attending  the Happy Trading Hours last November 29 at the MetisEtrade offices located at Marajo Tower in BGC.
