I was able to visit Somalia when I was living in Ethiopia. One of the reasons I moved to Eastern Africa was to be able to visit not only visit Somaliland, but also the newest country in the world, South Sudan. I was able to visit both countries and can now say that I was the first day trader in the newest country in the world. There was a day trader already in Somaliland, I tried to meet him but fell short on time. You can find out more about my adventures in Somaliland & South Sudan via my travel blog, WanderingTrader.com.
The biggest challenge to day trading in Eastern Africa was the internet. The required internet speeds for day traders don’t have to be super fast, but we do need a reliable connection. I had the biggest problem in Ethiopia, Somaliland didn’t have an issues as the fastest internet connections can be found on the coast of Africa. Somaliland also has a very advanced wireless networks for mobile broadband.
