Having Some Fun With Forex : Introducing the Mechanical Forex Crossword Puzzles

When you generally look into forex blogs and sites you will see that most of them are in fact quite boring. There are no small games, no way to entertain yourself and no way to learn the “fun way” through interaction with some sort of stimulating experience. I wanted to do a little experiment on the Asirikuy website in order to see if people like it better when there is a little bit of interaction with the website and – why not – a little bit of competition amongst website visitors.

Today I am going to be releasing the first MechanicalForex crossword puzzle, the idea with this is to help you learn some forex history and concepts through a very fun and hopefully challenging game and see how well you do against others who attempt to tackle the crossword. Since today is just my first test I will be introducing a crossword with only 10 words, all related to forex trading. In the future – if the idea does take off – I may do more crosswords with different forex related topics. To the best of my knowledge this is the only forex crossword on the internet so feel free to enjoy it as much as possible ! :o)

        Hello Daniel, you wrote a post once about Forex as a science or an art. Well, I find that within Asirikuy you made Forex the nearest as possible as a science, with your rigorous statistical-mathematical approach. Your attitude is very serious as it has to be, but I think it is good also to have fun in what we do. So it is a good idea to teach us also through non conventional ways, which can also bring some fun and some colour in this technical matter. Thank you very much for what you do for a proper trader’s education.
        Kind regards
