Forex Trading Good Opportunity Or Scam

Until recently, the forex market or foregn currency exchange market wasn't for the average trader or individual speculator. With the large minimum transaction sizes and often-stringent financial requirements, banks, hedge funds, major currency dealers and the occasional high net-worth individual speculator were the principal participants. These large traders were able to take advantage of the many benefits offered by the forex market vs. other markets, including the fantastic liquidity and strong trending nature of the world's primary currency exchange rates.
Fortunately, thanks to new legislation written in the late 1990’s, forex brokerages have opened up to the general public and offer trading opportunities for anyone who has an interest in trading currencies for profit. In fact, many brokers allow traders to open and trade currency with as little as $250 dollars in an account.
Regrettably, all of these new currency trading opportunities have created a lot of hype around the f…

Forex The Future Investment

There are many many advantages over the various other ways of investing. First of all it is a 24 hr market, except for weekends of course. You have the US market then the european and then the Asian. One of the great times to trade is during the over lapping periods. The USA and European overlap between 5am & 9am eastern and the European & Asian between 11pm & 1am eastern. Usually the busiest time and best to trade.
The is also the risk factor for the accounts. With futures and options you can get margin calls that can wipe you out. If you get caught in a bad trade not only do you lose the money in the account but you may have to come up
with alot more from your pocket. It can be very risking. But not in Forex. Worst case senerio you could lose whats in you account. But you would have to do something really stupid. Like making a big trade on a Fundamental day and leave it alone. If market takes a bad move and you weren't there. OOOPS. But That wouldn't happen with a …

These ratios are mathematical proportions prevalent in many places and structures in nature, as well as in many man made creations.

What Are Some Of The Factors That Make Forex Markets Different

There are a number of factors that make the Forex market unique. Many of these factors can have tremendous benefits for traders worldwide. Two of the most important are the high level of leverage and the extremely high liquidity.
Forex markets have some unique features that provide an incomparable potential for profitable currency trading in any market situation. A trader need not wait for the ‘opening bell’ as in the case of the exchange and has the opportunity to avail all fruitful market conditions at any time. Since the Foreign Exchange market is the most liquid market in the universe, traders can enter or exit the field at their will in any market condition.
As stated above, compared to the equity markets, Forex markets offer high leverage ratio. Although high leverage offers high profits, it may also expose the trader to extreme losses. Under normal market conditions, the bid/ask spread is less than 0.1% (10 pips). In the case of larger dealers, the spread could be smaller and may…

Major and Minor Currencies
The seven most frequently traded currencies (USD, EUR, JPY, GBP, CHF, CAD, and AUD) are called the major currencies. All other currencies are referred to as minor currencies. Do not worry about the minor currencies, they are for professionals only. Actually, on this site we will only be covering what we call the Fab Five (USD, EUR, JPY, GBP, and CHF). These pairs are the most liquid and are the only currencies we actually trade.
Cross Currency
A cross currency is any pair in which neither currency is the U. S. dollar. These pairs exhibit erratic price behavior since the trader has, in effect, initiated two USD trades. For example, initiating a long (buy) EUR/GBP is equivalent to buying a EUR/USD currency pair and selling a GBP/USD. Cross currency pairs frequently carry a higher transaction cost. The three most frequently traded cross rates are EUR/JPY, GBP/EUR, and GBP/JPY.
Base Currency
The base currency is the first currency in any currency pair. It shows how m…

The Basic Ground Covered By Forex Trading Education

Forex trading involves the buying and consequent selling of currencies. The Forex is the single largest traded market in the world with over $1.5trillion of trades completed every single trading day. There are several reasons for this popularity not least of which is the popularity itself. Those who want to begin trading currencies must first consider Forex trading education as a vehicle to learning the most important factors.
One of the first topics covered by any training course will be the key fundamentals associated with the Forex market. Fundamentals are pieces of information or news snippets that give analysts and traders an idea of the direction the Forex market is likely to take in the coming weeks, days or even hours. Examples of market fundamentals include civil unrest, election results and economic news. Economic news is of particular interest to Forex traders and includes a diverse range of information including government released figures on unemployment, GDP and more.

Forex There Is No Sure Fire System

Anyone claiming to have a sure fire trading strategy for the Forex is either lying or truly a genius because none exists—period. The Foreign Exchange market, or Forex, is the single largest market in the world. Actually, the Forex has no centralized market location but instead exists as an informal trading network where banks, governments, and retail investors can all come together and exchange currencies. Retail investors trade on the Forex via a software platform typically supplied by their broker. Nearly 2 trillion dollars are exchanged every day (the Forex is open 24 hours per day in between Sunday and Friday) giving investors ample opportunities to profit from the volatility and liquidity of the Forex.
But in truth, while the Forex offers a very simple and attainable path to sustainable investment income—it is extremely volatile for the retail investor. The standard transaction size on the Forex is $100,000 and would be very prohibitive to the majority of investors were it not for…

Why Trade The Forex

My purpose for writing this article is to demonstrate to you the advantages of trading on the FOREX market. However, there is one myth that I want to dispel before I go further. The myth is that there is a difference between trading and investing. To dispel that myth I quote from Al Thomas, President of Williamsburg Investment Company, who wrote “If It Doesn’t Go Up, Don’t Buy It”. He said “Everyone who invests is a trader, only the time period is different.” It is a lesson that I took seriously after taking a beating in the stock market in 2000.
So now, let’s compare features of currency trading to those of stock and commodity trading.
Liquidity - The FOREX market is the most liquid financial market in the world around 1.9 trillion dollars traded everyday. The commodities market trades around 440 billion dollars a day, and the US stock market trades around 200 billion dollars a day. This ensures better trade execution and prevents market manipulation. It also ensures easily executable …

Apply The Secret To Forex Trading Success

The Forex market is the largest trading network in the world with $1.8 trillion dollars being exchanged every day. There are dozens of different currencies traded but the big players to focus on are all traded with the US dollar and include: EUR (Euro), GBP (British pound), JPY (Japanese yen), CHF (Swiss franc), AUD (Australian dollar), NZD (New Zealand dollar), and the CAN (Canadian dollar). Each of these currencies is exchanged with the currency of other nations at different exchange rates—which are always in a state of flux because the market trades around the clock (Sunday through Friday). The volatility and sheer size of the market means that there is ample fluctuation to produce big profits—and losses. The challenge for the investor, as always, is to predict which direction the rates of currency pairs will fluctuate.
The beginning point in any investment strategy is determining what type of analysis will be used to help guide enter and exit decisions. Investors who use fundamenta…

Winning Strategies With Forex Charts

As you read forex charts, remember that the two fundamental approaches for online forex trading: fundamental analysis and technical analysis.
Fundamental analysis doesn’t rely on forex charts. It scrutinizes political and economic indicators to determine trades. Charts here are deployed as used as a secondary reference.
Technical analysis on the other hand, attempts to predict price swings by analysis of historical price activity. Those who use technical analysis study the relationship between price and time.
The most actively traded pair of currencies is the Euro and the US dollar, so we will use them in our example. The dollar is on the right hand side of the chart and the Euro is on the left hand side. The currencies are expressed in relationship to each other in pairing. Forex charges will always display how much of the currency on the right hand side is necessary to buy a unit of the currency on the left side. Looking at the typical EU-USD, chart you will notice the last price displ…
