You don’t actually have to travel outside your country, if that's your concern. With the availability of the Internet, you can actually do forex trading on a global scale even in your own home, at work, and regardless of your location.

Forex Software Dramatically Reduces Risk

Why pick the stock market? Is everyone's memory so short that 1929 has been forgotten? Do these innocents want to get taken to the cleaners, playing an expert's game?
No. Times have changed here and the word is getting around. Millions of people had their first investment experience with war bonds, and found it good. The bonds were issued in denominations small enough for people to handle easily. There was no fluctuation in their price, so you could put them away and forget them. They grew in value steadily, and could be cashed without fuss or trouble. If these conditions could be duplicated in the stock market, investment might make very good sense.
Of course, in the market, price fluctuation was inevitable. Common stock could never have the stability of a Government obligation like the E-bond. Still, it had become a very respectable piece of merchandise. Workers learned that their union pension funds included large blocks of sound common stocks. And frequently the company they…

How Do Forex Brokers Make Money

It is one of the most talked-about advantages of trading on the Forex—the commission-free trades! Unfortunately, while we would all like to think that Forex brokers are just out there executing trades for the fun of it, the simple truth is that everyone needs to make money—even the brokers. While they may not charge a traditional commission, brokers on the Forex still make their money whenever trades take place. Brokers actually are compensated in a number of ways, including:
• Buying/Selling Currencies
• Earned interest on deposited funds
• Converting and holding currencies
• Rollover fees
It is in the buying and selling of currencies that brokers make the majority of their money. They make this money in something known as the “spread”, or the difference between the asking and bidding price of the currency pair. The “ask” is the price a retail Forex trader would pay for a position. The “bid” price refers to the amount that an investor could then sell the position at.
The smallest unit of m…

Experienced traders are wise enough to avoid the frauds – it’s the new traders who are most vulnerable to the forex scams that are slipping into the currency exchange market.
The U. S.

Forex The Other Investment Vehicle

An investment, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is “the commitment of funds with a view to minimizing risk and safeguarding capital while earning a return”. Generally speaking, investments are made for the “long haul”, with the belief that the value of the investment vehicle of choice will increase in value. When you say investment to most people in the United States, the first “vehicle” of choice in their minds is the Stock Market, with Mutual Funds in second place, followed more recently by property in third place, and Bonds in a distant fourth. Commodities and currency trading are rarely considered investments because of the speculative nature of those markets. Speculation, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is the “assumption of unusual business risk in hopes of obtaining commensurate gain”. A quick review of the definitions of “investment” and “speculation” immediately highlights the “inherent amount of risk” as the major difference between both practices. If you were to survey all tho…

Forex Trading Psychology The Art Of Mind Control

Indeed, you really do need to hone your skills at self-discipline and become a virtual Zen Master if you truly want to succeed in the fluid Forex market. Trading 24 hours per day (the market does close from Friday afternoon until Sunday) thanks to a network of inter-linked computers in financial institutions around the world, the Forex market is by far the largest and literally dwarfs the commodities and futures markets. Nearly 1.8 trillion dollars change hands each day and you can profit from the interchange of currencies—if you can control the four most dangerous emotions that tend to cloud judgment and cost you profits. These four emotions include:
• Greed
• Fear
• Hope
• Faith
With the right investment strategy, the Forex market can certainly be very profitable but greed is always a factor in any human endeavor—especially investing. Greed causes perhaps the greatest problem when it comes to investing in the Forex—overtrading. When an investor overtrades, there is a greater potential to…

Forex Trading Vs. Commodities See What You Could Be Missing

Foreign Currency Exchange (Forex) Trading involves determining whether a certain nation’s currency will go up or down compared to another major currency. When you trade in the Forex, you trade currency pairs: Pairs of national currencies which go up or down relative to each other.
When you trade Commodities (anything found naturally in nature or planted) you determine if the price of a certain commodity will go up or down based on whether you believe there will be a good growing season, increased mining prospects, a bad growing season, floods, drought, strikes etc. Mother Nature plays a much stronger role in trading commodities than it does in trading currency. And we all know “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature”.
World Events:
As mentioned above, the constant change in weather patterns from year to year can play havoc on the commodities market. If it’s not the weather it could be strikes by miners, new mineral discoveries, dry holes, war or a multitude of different events, all of which…

The Pros And Cons Of Trading A Forex Trading Demonstration Account

Trading is a skill that takes time to learn. Think of it like Boxing it’s also a skill that takes time to learn.
If you get into a professional boxing ring without any training, you’ll get beat up physically! If you get into the Forex ring without any training, you’ll get beat up financially!
The similarities are that both the examples are Skills, and both require psychological preparation. The difference is that one is physical and the other is financial.
We can get over a physical beating usually in a few days or weeks, BUT a financial beating can be devastating and easily affect us for the rest of our lives, not only does it hurt our hip pocket but it can cause problems with our relationships and family. So when we get into the Forex ring we have to be prepared.
The Professional Boxer
When a professional boxer gets in the ring he has already been practicing in a safe environment usually for years, this safe environment is where he can make mistakes without having medical treatment. He c…

How The Internet Sparked The Boom In Forex Trading

Unless you've been living under a rock the past decade or so, you've undoubtedly heard a new word enter the English lexicon -- forex. Before the advent of the Internet, almost no one had ever heard the word, let alone knew what it meant. But now, it seems like everyone and their brother has a "foolproof" system for reaping tremendous profits trading currencies on the forex. While most of these systems quickly bite the dust -- along with the traders employing them -- thousands of individual investors join the largest financial market in the world, the forex, every day, and many of them do realize their financial dreams without ever leaving the comfort of their home offices. And to think, none of this was possible just a few years ago, before the widespread adoption of the Internet.
The Forex-Internet Boom
For those that don't know, "forex" is short for "foreign exchange," and it is the market in which international currencies are traded. Historic…

Forex Trading The Perfect Forex Trading System

Trading the Forex market has became very popular in the last few years. But how difficult is it to achieve success in the Forex trading arena? Or let me rephrase this question, how many traders achieve consistent profitable results trading the Forex market? Unfortunately very few, only 5% of traders achieve this goal. One of the main reasons of this is because Forex traders focus in the wrong information to make their trading decisions and totally forget about the most important factor: Price behavior.
Most Forex trading systems are made off technical indicators (a moving average (MA) crossover, overbought/oversold conditions in an oscillator, etc.) But what are technical indicators? They are just a series of data points plotted in a chart; these points are derived from a mathematical formula applied to the price of any given currency pair. In other words, it is a chart of price plotted in a different way that helps us see other aspects of price.
There is an important implication on thi…

How Forex Can Affect Your Company

If you work with a company that does international business, then you have a connection to the concept of Forex.
Short for foreign exchange, the concept has to do with calculating out the current rate of exchange between currencies of different countries.
Here are some of the factors that come into play when it comes to arriving at and updating those rates of exchange, and how that impacts the bottom line of your employer.
There are actually quite a few different factors that come into play in order to arrive at a current rate of exchange on the currencies of any two given countries.
For now, let's focus just on the economic issues that often come into play.
The most basic of the economic factors is the balance between imported and exported goods and services between the two countries. Ideally, the trade flow between the two countries will be somewhat balanced and very steady in nature.
However, should the situation shift so that the demand for a given country's goods and services d…

What Is Forex Get Rich

Although forex is the largest financial market in the world, it is relatively unfamiliar terrain to retail traders. Until the popularization of internet trading a few years ago, FX was primarily the domain of large financial institutions, multinational corporations and secretive hedge funds. But times have changed, and individual investors are hungry for information on this fascinating market.
What makes the relative value of Currency fluctuate?
There are two reasons the relative value of a currency fluctuates. The first is because of a 'real' market: as outside investors or visitors wish to buy things within a country, they are forced to convert their domestic currency into the currency of the country they are buying within. Similarly, as money leaves the country, people must sell their currency for the foreign currency they will need to spend or invest abroad.
The second force for currency fluctuation is speculation. As investors feel a given currency will act strongly or weakl…

How To Prosper At Forex Trading Leverage The K-Factor

One of the big reasons that forex trading is an entirely different animal than stock trading or futures trading is leverage. Forex trading leverage can be enormous, as high as 400:1, and in most cases you get to choose the amount of leverage or gearing you want to trade with.
Super high leverage is a selling point for many online forex brokers. How many times have you seen the tout ‘control $100,000 of euro for $250’? Those numbers are correct, and, yes, the profit potential of super high leverage is compelling.
This article neither encourages nor discourages forex trading at super high leverage. That’s a personal decision, but a decision that can only be made sensibly with a professional understanding of all the implications of leverage and what they mean to your chances of prospering at forex trading. It’s probably fair to say that unless you have a professional understanding of leverage that your chance of even surviving at forex trading is slim to none.
One of the fundamental terms o…
