I have been in the corporate world for 22 years now and whilst I tire of it most days (mainly the politics) I wouldn't want to be under the pressure of not having a guaranteed pay check each month. At some point (probably about 10-15 years time) I'll probably have enough to be able to pursue my real interest which is trading but until then I do it as an hobby. If you can take the pressure of not earning a consistent pay check I think the benefits are great

I've never had a pay check (cheque).  I have had a weekly pay packet with real money inside or pay slips advising when the money is transferred directly to my bank.  It's the UK way!

Good luck birdman. I’m sure you’ll make the right decision. But never be afraid to try. If anything it’ll look good on your CV in the future!

My tip would be don’t exchange your money at the airport if you’ve not pre-booked as the rates you get are terrible. Hope this saves you a few quid.

Forex is beyond me I think, I just stick to stocks although this week it's not been such a good week. I did go shopping yesterday though for a few I like that were suddenly 20% cheaper.
