Nothing is more irritating than putting on that special shirt or blouse, only to find it is unwearable due to the many wrinkles it carries. That’s where the iron comes in. While it may have gone through much iteration, its core mission has stayed the same, to straighten out your clothes. Here’s how irons have developed as technology has changed, and just how much value they add to the home.

Traditional Irons

As you might imagine, traditional irons were quite rudimentary. The Chinese would fill pans with hot coals, and then press that over stretched cloth to get rid of wrinkles.

binary optionsIf you like to day trade and swing trade, then this could be a good way of organizing and indeed improving your trading results.

Short term day trades, typically lasting a few minutes or hours could benefit from being kept apart from your swing trades, which typically last for a few days. The various brokers offer binary bets that are suited to short term and longer term trades and it could be a good idea to use one broker for day trading and another for your swing trading.

Keeping Your Trades Apart

If you have short and medium term trades open at the same time in the same account they can cloud your judgement and affect your trading decisions. For instance if you have swing trades that are under water it may make you hesitant to take a day trade, even if it was well planned and fits with your strategy. Using one broker account for day trades and another for your longer term positions is a good way to keep them separate and keep your trading decisions clear and to plan.

by Pam on October 13, 2014

consider hidden opportunity costs when making decisionsHave you ever stopped to think about how much a decision you make will really cost you?  I’m not talking about just the dollar cost.  I’m talking about the opportunity cost.

What is an opportunity cost?

foreign exchange marketWhen you read blogs like this one – they’re great for encouraging you to save money and be as frugal as possible in your life in healthy ways that help get you free from debt.

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that – it is a lifestyle to be commended as long as it doesn’t become a needlessly penurious one, of course.

But then you see around you plenty of other people who seem to live quite a “high rolling” existence and seem to enjoy that life too.

This isn’t for everyone; many of us still wouldn’t be buying penthouse apartments and flashy cars even if we could. But at the same time – it would sometimes be nice to switch off from sweating the detail in saving the pennies.

One way some people manage this is through trading. Now trading can refer to pretty much any kind of market. There are people out there buying and selling goods online, others running market stalls – and each knows his or her business and how to profit from it.
