Bloomberg Markets — The Lure of ForexNovember 17, 2014 9:22 pm
A few months ago I was asked by Bloomberg Markets to photograph some people involved in foreign exchange trading (often referred to as forex). Many compare this type of investing to playing roulette at a casino, but the difference is that forex traders overwhelmingly bankroll their accounts using credit cards.
I don’t know much about investing and I’ve never found it very interesting, but forex is a fascinating story. Most experts look at it as a terrible idea and the numbers say the same thing, but the people who believe in it have an incredible amount of conviction. In September I travelled to Orlando Florida to photograph Jared Martinez. He teaches a forex masterclass and goes by “the FX Chief”. It’s always interesting to speak with a man whose charm is his biggest asset.
Below are some of the pictures I took – you can check out David Evans’ article in full by clicking here.
Many thanks to Photo Editor Manuela Oprea and the Bloomberg Markets photography department.
