We do currency trading (investing in money from different countries, sort of like the banks do) which, for the most part lately, is actually pretty simple.
Last night though, things got a little crazy... The Japanese Yen was dropping quite a bit and we had quite a bit of it. We figured that overnight, it would get back to normal. We went to bed around 2 as we often do.
I woke up at 4:30 and really wanted to check. It was around the same. I went back to bed.
Then at about 6 a.m. I heard an alarm (I thought we had removed them) binging from the computer - telling us that something was going on with the currencies... I got there and saw our account WAY down... like WAAAAAY down.
There was no way I could get back to sleep - Sara made me a great big breakfast and we watched as things slowly got back to normal...
Phew... Now we wait...
