Everyone has been affected by Coronavirus. Many lives and jobs have been lost during the pandemic. Like the Great Recession of 2008, many businesses have been forced to shut down. In this case, affecting means either positive or negative effects.
Throughout the pandemic, the greatest winners are those who had their businesses online. Most of them have been affected positively. Herein, we will get into the life of a Forex Expert, Clint Fester, and assess how his life during the pandemic has been.
He is a 35-year-old forex mentor and the CEO of FestX Pty Ltd, a forex education program that has more than 2500 students worldwide and is still growing.
Clint Festers job
Clint started by saying that he is always being asked what he does for a living. He knows that he is a Forex Trader, but he does not use that word. Nowadays, numerous people are calling themselves traders, and he feels uncomfortable just calling himself the same.
Instead, if he is asked what he does for a living, he says, “I’m an Investor. I invest in different currencies on a daily or weekly basis. Some days I’m buying a specific currency, and other days I’m selling it. Welcome to the life of an Investor.”
Effects of Coronavirus
When the pandemic hit, Clint says that his specific pair in which he loves trading was at its All-Time High (ATH). The signs were there technically to sell the pair, and when the fundamentals hit and lined up with the Technical, it was a hotbed for profits.
On the other hand, he had to close his Headquarters based in Cape Town and send his three staff members home because they were using the office mainly for the clients wanting to learn in-person.
Indeed, Coronavirus affected him but not monetarily like most of the people. He is enjoying life with his family as he continues doing Forex at home.
To the Negatively Affected
Clint has been on the forefront to help people who have been affected by the pandemic. In South Africa, the president announced a 4-week total lockdown in March. During the period, he dropped the price of his course by 80%, and it helped people learn some ways to achieve some financial goals while working online.
He says that when he sees Forex changing the lives of people, he has taught he feels so grateful and yearns to continue helping people.
