  • Liu,Hsuan-You
    Having the courage to take on challenges and changes makes me stronger every day!

    The time reads 9:29 p.m. Four screens in front of us flicker showing pages and pages of prices. Spreads between currencies widen; people begin to hold their breaths. At 9:30 sharp - "US payrolls are at 266K, far better than the expected 181K" - the stock, bond, and the FX markets immediately face significant impact.
