Long ago in the ancient land of Tradeopolis there lived a king, King Libra. This king was a very kind, intelligent, giving, sharing soul. The thing that was most unique about King Libra compared to any other king was he was more like a God. His people and the surrounding kingdoms often prayed to him and bowed to him in his presence for he had such great intelligence and knew everything there was to know. The people in Tradeopolis respected him greatly and when anyone was in need they would go to him to help solve all their problems.
One day one of his people, Fast Market Freddy, came to King Libra and told him he wanted to trade Foreign Currency. “Ah, yes,” said the King, “what a brilliant idea. You know you must have money in your pocket and in the bank to do this, Freddy.” Fast Market Freddy answered, “Yes, I have that covered, King.” King Libra said, “You must have the emotional and physical endurance to be successful because not everyone can do this. You will learn more about yourself than you might ever care to know.” “I understand,” replied Freddy, “I take care of myself physically by working out and eating right. I meditate and understand my emotions. I don’t let them get the best of me. I am a model citizen in our kingdom, giving to others and respecting my family.” “Perfect”, King Libra replied, “so what is it you need from me?” “Well”, Fast Market Freddy said,” I want to know how long this will take me to learn.” “Ah, yes,” replied the King, “to answer your question, you must go to see the three Wise Wizards, TOLI, TOLI-O and TOLI-O-O, in that order.”
So off Fast Market Freddy went to first seek the advice of TOLI. He approached TOLI’s beautiful castle and knocked on the door. “What is it you wish to know?” bellowed the voice behind the door. “It is I, Fast Market Freddy, and King Libra sent me to seek the advise of the Wise Wizard TOLI. I want to start trading Foreign Currency and I want to know how long it will take me.” The Wise Wizard, TOLI, opened the door, touched Freddy on the chin with his pointer finger and answered, “Six months.” “Six months?” anxiously replied Freddy, “I don’t have six months to wait. I have bills to pay, children to feed and a wife who overspends.” “I see. Since you do not appreciate my wise answer, I advise you to go see the Wise Wizard, TOLI-O.”
And, off Fast Market Freddy went to seek the advice of Wise Wizard, TOLI-O. He quickly approached TOLI-O’s beautiful castle and knocked heavily on the door. “What is it you wish to know?” bellowed the voice behind the door. “It is I, Fast Market Freddy, and the Wise Wizard TOLI sent me here. I want to start trading Foreign Currency and I really want to know how long it will take me.” The Wise Wizard, TOLI-O, slowly opened the door, touched Freddy on his forehead with his pointer finger and answered, “One year.” “One year?” Freddy started to yell, “What’s the matter with you? One year is ridiculous! I don’t have the time for this and you are crazy!” “I see. Since you do not appreciate my wise answer, I advise you to go see the Wise Wizard, TOLI-O-O.”
Stomping his feet, Fast Market Freddy marched over to the even more beautiful castle of the Wise Wizard, TOLI-O-O. He knocked heavily on the door. “What is it you wish to know?” softly questioned the voice behind the door. “It is I, Fast Market Freddy, and the Wise Wizard TOLI-O sent me here. I want to start trading Foreign Currency and I demand to know how long it will take me. Now give me the answer I want to hear!” The all-knowing wizard opened the door, touched Freddy gently on the forehead with her closed fist and quietly replied, “A lifetime.” “Oh, you are out of your mind, TOLI-O-O! That’s so unreasonable and no one would ever do this! I am out of here!” Fast Market Freddy almost put his fist through the Wise Wizard TOLI-O-O’s beautiful Golden Doors and stormed off in a huge huff.
