Unless mother market has another nasty surprise for me, which is also quite likely...

very interesting information, thanks..

how's the transition been from diving to sitting all day long in front of a screen? trading is obviously not as exciting as diving. i didn't even know there's a job description like yours. 😄

They compliment each other.

I just get tired of all the code, results, stats, the thought processes. Sometimes its nice to just do, not think. So the one is a break from the other.

Offshore is like a spa. No booze, plenty of water, plenty of cardio exercise (diving is heavy cardio work), buffet meals, a gym, poor internet mostly so no point in trying to trade. When I'm off I don't do tv or computers, but books. Old school.

Often I have to wait for results. So I put down code and go work, come back in 2 months with full pockets to a solid set of data to work with, rested and fit.

I only work 6 months a year, the rest is 100% dedicated to doing this, no interruptions that I don't want. Of course I have the bonus of choosing any location I want. I always get flown from where ever to where ever and back.

It actually worked bloody well until now. But the fx is now getting to the point where I can't be out of touch anymore. I need to be here to handle stuff. Not for me so much. But I have to make sure my servers or code doesn't go mad and lose money for people. Be kind of selfish to let that happen while I'm out there earning a second income.

Elkart, I can't express how much I envy you 😱

You sound like one of those guys you see on the National-Geographic channel working at a job which is practically non-existent in the real world.

How exactly can I apply for a job like yours? 😄

Patience is a virtue.

You put down your money's, go do the course and then phone everyone in the book till you get a break.

Not that difficult, you'll need to do one additional course, offshore survial: https://vhost2.onyx.net/~falcknutec.com/worldwide.html

And that's it. All it takes.

I wouldn't suggest diving though, I had a navy back ground, so I was qualified at 19 already when I was stupid and young. Made it easier.

I would suggest ROV's, it's the way of the future: https://www.theunderwatercentre.co.uk/rov.asp

Or LST, Life Support Technician, i.o.w you keep the SAT guys alive: https://www.theunderwatercentre.co.uk/coursedescription.asp?courseid=15

These are careers in their own right, top of the ladder in both is about $1500 a day. Average daily wage after about 2 years would be $600 to $800 a day.

If you're in the states they have a little different system, but you do the course first and take it from there.

And it sounds mind boggling to go do, but your first jobs you'll be doing the coffee while the big dogs show you how it's done. You get experienced into it. It isn't this mind blowing do or die experience that it looks like at first glance. Except for the diving, there's only one way to do a dive...do or go home.

The mostly likely replacement for oil is frozen methane. There's a lot more of that than there ever was oil. That's all going to be ROV work, to deep for diving.

It's also heavily implicated in at least one of the six major extinctions!

True. But the market always gives nasty surprise.
