Opportunity to Telecommute Using Remote Presentation Software

The idea of telecommuting is a highly attractive one to many people. The attraction arises out of the fact that through it, people can get to work from the comfort of their homes. This would translate to many benefits. For starters, it would translate to savings on travel costs, to and from work. Secondly, it translates to greater convenience. Nothing, in terms of convenience, beats the opportunity to work right from your bed, in your pajamas! And thirdly, it translates to less work stress: starting with that which one would be very likely to encounter on the roads on their way to work, to that which tends to come up as tensions build up in offices.

Unfortunately, in its earliest days, telecommuting was seen as something that was only possible for certain jobs and not for others. People whose work did not involve a lot of personal interactions, the likes of accountants and computer programmers, were seen as the only people who could telecommute. On the other hand, people whose work revolved around a lot of personal interactions and the making of various presentations like managers were told that they couldn’t telecommute.

Thankfully though, through tools like the increasingly popular remote presentation software, it is becoming possible for people whose work previously made it possible for them to telecommute to do so nowadays. That is especially the case for managers whose day to day work, for the most part, revolves around preparing and making various presentations.

It is because of that nature of their work (which involves making and attending presentations), that managers were previously seen as the sorts of people who couldn’t work from home. After all, in the absence of a mechanism through which they could make presentations from home, how would they be able to go about their work?

Remote presentation software changes the dynamics of the issue radically.

Through the remote presentation software, it becomes possible for people to make presentations from wherever they happen to be, in real time, and in a professional platform. And thanks to that, the argument that managers couldn’t telecommute ‘because their work involved making presentations’ doesn’t hold water any more. Through remote presentations software, it becomes possible for managers, from the comfort of their homes, to make presentations to colleagues (or other business stakeholders) who may be thousands of miles away. That means that through this software, the business managers not only get the opportunity to work from their homes, but they could even work from their hotel rooms while on vacation.

To be sure, not all managers will still be able to telecommute even with the emergence of remote presentation software. There are elements of management work that require real person interaction, and which simply can’t be done remotely. What is for sure though, is the fact that on the days when all that the manager is schedule to do happens to be a series of internal presentations, they can manage to work from home, through the use of the remote presentation software. And that opportunity to work from home, even if it is just occasional, would be a great relief to many driven managers who, as things stand, hardly ever get any opportunity even to breathe.

Forex Money Managers – Handling Whipsaws, The Clear And Present Danger

No matter how careful or experienced a forex trader one may be, the whipsaw is always a clear and present danger. This is one event that can and will catch one off guard, literally knocking even the most able forex manager off his feet. While, every trader will be whipsawed a number of times during his trading career, there are ways to reduce the number of possible whipsaws one may suffer.

I’ve been ‘whipsawed,’ and quite a number of times to. However, as the years ticked by, I started to realize that there are certain scenarios when a whipsaw may strike and disciplined myself to steer clear away form them.

A whipsaw’ is a term used to describe a situation when the market moves defiantly against all logic. A trader may have placed an order expecting the market to go in a certain directions according to his calculations, when suddenly the market moves against him, taking him and his investment for a toss stopping out his trade and all within the hour too.

While most traders will retire disgruntled, cursing their luck and even perhaps blaming the broker for ‘keeping an eye’ on the trade and ‘fixing’ it to make him lose money, other seasoned trader, there for the long haul and to make a career of the profession, will learn from their mistakes, analyse and return only to be stronger, better prepared and will make more money in time.

Whipsaws occur unexpectedly and can cause great loss, however if one knows certain market conditions these events occur in, one can be prepared. Even though managing whipsaws cannot have a one-size-fits-all solution, one can minimize losses and not be wiped out in one blow.

Whipsaws usually and almost definitely occur, when the market ranges. This happens around holiday time such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year etc, when volumes are low. Summers are the time when most whipsaws occur. This is because a lot of people are on vacation and volumes are very low. August is a particular month to watch out for. If you have to trade in summer don’t go with the daily trends, because the markets may look bullish one day and bearish the next. Go with a longer time frame. A week or month is better.

Always keep with the trend. This will reduce the chances of getting whipsawed. Keep a large margin of at least 200 pips. Whipsaws always return to the entry level after a few days if not a few hours.

Last but not the least, if you have been whipsawed you will be angry and frustrated, but don’t try to fight the market, you can’t get even, revenge is a killer especially where trading is concerned. If you have been stopped out, you will just have to wait it out. There will be other days to make some money. Remember, trade with a strategy that you stick to like glue. This includes having some indicators in place, entering the market when they indicate to do so, keeping a fixed lot size to trade, earning a fixed number of pips before you close the trade, keeping a fixed maximum number of pips before stepping out, and you will find that with a good strategy and some practice, you will begin to make more profitable trades than losing ones. The averages will have you smiling your way to the bank!
