Artist's Description

On December 26, 2013 in the binary options news seen on Boxing Day from optionsclick’s op-ed blog for traders, this editorial webcomic was published. Its centerpiece, the subject, is a man carrying many colorful bags full of presents, wearing a red head protector used by boxers, and with a pair of boxing gloves over one of his shoulders. It so happens that on this day, financial markets are typically shut down as investors take the time off for the holidays. Of course, other markets whose local culture is not that of the West, keep on trading during Boxing Day. And on this particular date, investors were taking their time off, even as the Yen was taking a little bath, and the trading was rather thin across many markets. Of course, trading assets when markets are mostly closed is an opportune time for the skilled investor to earn impressive returns on investment. This is because there is far less competition on quiet days, then on days when everyone is in the fray. Naturally, most people prefer not to work on holidays because of their traditions or busy schedules or other distractions of life. This is a limiting belief, of course, because it implies that one can really only take the time to focus on their financial portfolio when their local markets, or the markets they invest in, are open. This is the same problem that anyone faces with the dillema of the scarcity of resources. The irony of this dillema is that it is entirely self-made. People create a scarcity of resources in their own mind, and they actualize their limited view of the world by living day to day within that fear. Much like the fear of the potential of rejection when one stranger has an opportunity to approach another, the self-limiting belief of doubt and uncertainty is so powerful, that it leads most people to do absolutely nothing with the golden opportunities that are otherwise well within their grasp.
