But if you earn with your labor, then I see no reason not to say exactly what you earn.
It seems to me what question, how do you earn a living, can be clearly and correctly answered, without any deceit
I speak from experience: When I tell people honestly that I trade currency, no matter how often I repeat this fact, they keep thinking I am trading shares and they always ask me, 'how are my shares going?'
Maybe 10% of the time, I have someone interested and that understands I am trading something different. And they keep asking me questions to try and learn by talking to me. I love to talk currency, but when a person is keen to learn but knows nothiing, it is better they go to online resources like babypips.com.
Either way, people don't 'get it'. Truly, not many people trade currency.
