Being a forex trader: Is it for you?

Being a forex trader is not for the faint of heart. The foreign exchange market
is a fast-paced world that operates 24 hours a day, 5 and a half days a week.
For some traders, fortunes are made and lost very quickly. Yet for someone with
the right know-how and enough motivation and drive, forex trading can be
rewarding both personally and financially.

How many people make their living as forex traders? It's hard to say for sure,
but we know the number is smaller than the number of stock traders. Most forex
traders are actually international banks and other huge corporations; private
citizens comprise only about 2 percent of the entire forex market.

Nonetheless, they are out there, and the number is growing. As the Internet and
other technological advancements make it more accessible, the forex market
becomes more manageable and more average citizens become traders. To begin
with, most of these "day traders" keep their regular jobs and do forex as a
side project. It's notoriously difficult to make a living as a forex trader at
the start, and most new investors find they must allow for the learning curve
before they're really ready to do it full-time.

Once a new trader gets the hang of it, buying and selling currencies with some
degree of confidence and turning a profit, he may find that he can quit his day
job and focus on trading full-time. There is certainly enough activity to fill a
forex trader's day, with news that could affect currency rates coming in almost
constantly. A smart trader watches this information continually, almost
obsessively, always on the watch for a sign that the time is right to buy or
sell.

With home computers and high-speed Internet service available nearly
everywhere, being a trader from home has become feasible. Some traders
eventually become brokers, but the excitement -- and the potential profit --
lies in working for yourself. With a stock market, a bad day could mean
disaster. But with the forex market, a bad day for one nation's economy hardly
matters, since there are still a dozen more strong, viable currencies to be
traded. In that way, some consider being a forex trader slightly more stable
than being a stock broker. Either way, there is always risk when money and
speculation are involved, but with dedication and resourcefulness, you can make
a handsome living as a forex trader.

Covering the basics of the forex market

The foreign exchange, or forex, market is relatively young, having begun in the
early 1970s after the United States dropped the gold standard and national
currencies started to fluctuate widely. For about 30 years prior to that, most
nations had agreed to keep their currency values stable in relation to the U.S.
dollar, making a forex market unnecessary. With that no longer the case, banks
quickly realized that a profit could be made in "buying" currency when it was
devalued and "selling" it after it strengthened, just like any other commodity.

Today, the forex market handles about $1.9 trillion in transactions every day,
and it runs 24 hours a day, five days a week. (With nations around the world
involved, it's always daytime somewhere.) The most traded currencies are the
U.S. dollar, the euro, Japanese yen, British pound, Swiss franc and Australian
dollar.

The forex market is overwhelmingly dominated by international banks, government
banks, investment banks, corporations, and hedge funds. In fact, individual
traders account for only about 2 percent of the market. Nonetheless, a lot of
people do try their hand at it, with varying degrees of success.

In the forex market, transactions are always handled in pairs: You buy one
currency and sell another one. The idea is to make a trade when you believe the
currency you're buying is going to go up in value compared to the one you're
selling. Then, if it turns out your prediction was correct, you do another
trade in the reverse direction -- selling the currency you originally bought
and buying the one you sold -- in order to reap the profits.

For example, let's say the market reports this: GBP/EUR 1.2200. That means the
cost of buying one British pound is 1.22 euros. If you believed that course was
going to change, and the euro was going to become more valuable than the pound,
you might sell 100,000 pounds, buy 100,000 euros, and wait. Then let's say a
few weeks later, the exchange rate fluctuates to this: EUR/GBP 1.3100. Sure
enough, the euro is now worth 1.31 pounds, a profit of 0.11 per unit.

The forex market is vast and daunting and mostly inhabited by giant
organizations. But it can be navigated by individuals who have studied the
finer points and who want to take a risk on something potential profitable. And
since the whole world uses money, the trading of that money is always going to
be a major force in the financial world.

How to read a forex chart

The forex chart is among the most basic tools in a forex trader's arsenal.
Simply put, it is a graph of a particular currency pair's performance over a
given period of time. Reading forex charts is essential to a trader's business,
so it's important to know how to read them and understand what they mean.

Every forex chart will be labeled with a currency pair: EUR/USD, USD/GBP, etc.
Remember, all forex trading deals with different countries' currency in
relation to each other. The EUR/USD chart, for example, tells you how the euro
and the U.S. dollar compare.

Along the bottom of the chart is the timeline -- 15 minutes, an hour, a day, a
week, or some other period. Going up the right-hand side are incremental
amounts. For the EUR/USD chart, the amounts might be 1.2531 at the bottom,
going up to 1.2561 at the top. And of course the middle of the chart shows what
position the EUR/USD pair held at what time.

The forex chart is useful because it shows in graphic terms how a currency pair
is doing. You can see at a glance whether a currency is getting stronger or
weaker, and you can act accordingly. Choosing the time frame helps you see very
minor trends (in a 15-minute period, say) or more long-term ones (over the
course of several days, perhaps).

You can find forex charts all over the Internet, on Web sites for forex
brokers, tutors, and on other forex-related sites. Those are fine for glancing
at trends now and then. But to be a serious trader, you need to have access to
charts much more readily, without having to go to a Web site. That's why
trading software gives you forex charts, too (you need to have broadband
Internet so you can be "always connected"). Obviously, if you're going to be
trading, you need to have convenient access to the very latest charts.

With dozens of world currencies, there are far too many possible currency pairs
for anyone to keep track of mentally. Forex charts show at a glance what any
currency pair is up to, and good software allows you to save multiple charts as
"favorites." Naturally you'll want to keep an eye on the charts representing
investments you've already made, and it's smart to have a few additional ones
saved, too, so you can watch for trends in currencies you haven't traded yet.
You never know when a lucrative new opportunity is going to be revealed.

The basics of reading a forex quote

The foreign exchange market can be a baffling place for newcomers, and one of
the sources of confusion is the forex quote. A forex quote is a small bit of
information, yet it's packed with numbers that may not make sense to someone
unfamiliar with the forex system. Here's a basic explanation of how it works.

A forex quote consists of a currency pair -- forex deals always involve
simultaneously selling one currency and buying another -- a bid price and an
ask price. For example, one quote might be this:

USD/JPY 118.71/75

The first currency is the base currency, and the other one is the quote
currency. The value of the base currency is always 1 -- in this case, 1 U.S.
dollar. The number tells you how many of the quote currency (the Japanese yen,
in this case) you can buy with $1.

But what kind of number is 118.71/75? It's actually forex shorthand for two
numbers: 118.71 and 118.75. The lower number is the bid price, the other is the
ask price. The bid price is the price that dealers will buy the base currency
for. The ask price is what dealers will sell it for.

So if the above were the current quote, it would mean right now, you could SELL
U.S. dollars in exchange for 118.71 yen per dollar. Or, if you preferred, you
could BUY U.S. dollars at a rate of 118.75 yen per dollar.

The difference between the bid price and the ask price in a forex quote is
called the "spread," and those tiny units are called "pips." In our example,
the spread for USD/JPY was four pips. The spread is usually that small for the
most commonly traded currencies, which means anything involving the U.S.
dollar, Japanese yen, Great British pound, the euro, Swiss franc or Australian
dollar. In fact, thanks to the great competition in the forex trading market,
some quotes will have spread of as little as one pip.

Of course, for less commonly traded currencies, the spread can be much greater.
And even when the quote delivers a small spread, it adds up when you're trading
hundreds of thousands of units. If you were dealing with 100 U.S. dollars, the
difference between selling them for 11,871 yen and buying them for 11,875 yen
wouldn't be much at all -- just four yen. But if it were 100,000 U.S. dollars,
suddenly that four-pip spread means a 4,000-yen difference. So the spread in a
quote is more important than its smallness would suggest.

What a forex rate is and how to read it

When we talk about the forex rate, we're talking about the relative value
between two currencies -- how many of one the other is worth, in other words.
For forex traders, the forex rate is the basic information they use to do their
job. The rate is to a forex trader what nails are to a carpenter.

If you plan to get involved in forex trading, reading and understanding the
forex rates is absolutely vital to your success, like learning the basics of
addition before becoming a mathematician.

A forex rate is always expressed in pairs, followed by a number. The number is
how many of the second currency you'd get for one of the first one. For
example, you might see USD/EUR: 0.7928. That means that one U.S. dollar is
currently worth .7928 euros. If you were to exchange $100, you'd get 79.28
euros for it. Since the number in this rate (0.7928) is less than 1, that means
the second currency is currently stronger than the first one -- that is, the
euro is stronger than the U.S. dollar.

Forex traders look at rates constantly throughout the day. They carefully
examine trends in various currencies' performance, noting which are going up
and which are going down. If a rate suggests, say, that the British pound is
starting to increase in value compared to the euro, a trader might swap his
euros for pounds. Then, when new rates show the pound has become very strong,
he can swap back again, turning a profit because the pound is now worth more
than he "paid" for it.

Forex rates are available everywhere on the Internet. Casual observers to the
forex trading industry might glance at them for reference on hundreds of
different Web sites. Regular traders, though, usually own software that keeps
them up to date on rates throughout the day, without having to visit a
particular site to get them.

This is important, because rates change constantly, and can be influenced by a
wide variety of economic and political factors. The overall change over the
course of a day usually isn't more than a few percentage points either way, but
there are minor changes regularly, and those minor changes add up in the long
run. Experienced traders watch the rates for those tiny fluctuations, carefully
observing whether there is a general upward or downward trend that requires
their attention.

What to watch for when reading a forex book

When it comes to forex trading, there are many, many resources out there to
help you learn the ropes. There are online courses, seminars and even
one-on-one training available. But sometimes the best way to learn is the
old-fashioned way: by reading a book.

The marketplace abounds with forex books, and many new traders find them the
best way to learn because it allows them to re-read passages as many times as
necessary to fully grasp the concepts. Imagine asking the speaker at a large
public seminar to repeat himself and you can see why a book has its advantages!

The question is, which forex book should you read? Like any other field, the
forex trading world has its share of hucksters and liars. Be wary of any book
that makes outrageous claims in its title or on the cover -- "Be a forex pro in
an hour!" or "Make millions while you sleep!" for example. If a forex book
promises something that's too good to be true, it probably is. And if the book
downplays or neglects the inherent risk in forex trading, you should skip it.

What you want in a forex book instead is calm, reasonable, practical advice.
Showy, glitzy language suggests the writer is trying to pull a fast one. (And
you have to wonder: If it's SO EASY to make millions in forex trading, why is
this guy writing books about it instead of doing it?) Restrained, logical
language suggests the writer knows the market and is simply explaining what
he's learned.

Take note also of the book's presentation. Is it an e-book sold by some guy off
his Web site? Is it riddled with grammar and spelling errors? Or does it appear
to have been written and edited by professionals, and presented in an
appealing, straightforward manner? You want a book that fits the latter
description. It's more likely to be reliable and up-front about the pros and
cons of forex trading.

Finally, when considering a forex book, it's worth taking a few minutes to
Google the author's name and see what comes up. Are there reviews of the book
written by actual readers (not testimonials provided on the author's Web site)?
Has the author been mentioned in any news stories? What is his or her
background? Does he or she have any real-world trading experience, or do they
just write forex books? Remember, those who can do, do. Those who can't do,
teach.

Finding a forex broker in a crowded marketplace

So you want to get involved in the foreign exchange market, or forex. You're
itching to trade one currency for another and make some profit. But you can't
just barge into Citigroup of Merrill Lynch and start throwing euros and yen
around. To participate, you need a forex broker.

The preeminent forex broker for day traders (i.e., average Joes) is Advanced
Currency Markets, or ACM. To many people, the Swiss company, founded in 2002,
is synonymous with "forex broker," trading about $70 billion a month.

There are dozens of other brokers, though, who service day traders. It's done
almost exclusively online, and in fact ordinary citizens rarely got involved
with forex trading at all until the computer boom of the 1980s, and then
exponentially more with the advent of the Internet in the 1990s. Since then,
forex brokers have proliferated.

As you might expect, levels of reliability and competence vary from one broker
to another. The Internet is rife with unsavory types seeking to take advantage
of suckers, so you would do well to investigate thoroughly any broker you're
planning to use. Does their Web site look professional and reassuring, or is it
riddled with dead links and spelling errors? Google the broker to see if they've
been mentioned in news articles. Ask about their track record. And above all,
avoid anyone who promises things that sound too good to be true, or who
downplay the financial risk involved in forex trading.

Look for a broker that seems to genuinely want your business. Does the firm
have customer service representatives available? Is there a phone number you
can call to speak to a live person? The Web site should explain things clearly.
If the site is full of language that seems designed to go over your head, look
for a different broker.

If you set up an account with an online forex broker, it will work like this.
First, you must apply for an account, which most brokers allow you to do
online. This is to verify your identity and the validity of your bank accounts
and financial records. Some brokers also require you to download their forex
trading software, while others let you use whatever software you prefer. You
will also have to transfer a minimum deposit to your account with your new
broker. The minimum can be anywhere from $100 to $2,500.

Ideally, the broker you choose should offer service and support when you need
it but should mostly simply stay out of the way and let you conduct your
business. If you can find a forex broker who is professional and helpful, your
experience in the forex market should be full of smooth sailing.

Forex Trading 101: An Educational Guide for Beginners

New in the Forex market? This market may sound really complicated and scary to
tackle but it's not. Just like in any kinds of trade, you make money when you
buy low and sell high. Forex trading is simply trading currencies in the Forex
market.

Forex is the largest financial market in the world. It generates trillions of
dollars of currency exchanges everyday and it operates 24 hours a day and seven
days a week therefore, also making it the most liquid market in the world.

In the world of Forex, trading in this very liquid market is very unique
compared to other financial market like stocks. Since the Forex market operates

is not centralized in one location. You can trade in Forex whenever you want
regardless of the local time.

In the past, Forex trading was only offered to large financial institutions,
like banks. And, it was also only offered to large companies, multi-national
corporations and large currency dealers. This is because of the large and
extremely strict financial requirements the Forex market imposed. This means
that individual traders and small businesses are not able to participate in
this liquid market.

However, in the late 90s, Forex was made available to individual traders and
small businesses. This is due to the advances in the communications technology.

However, trading in this ever liquid market also has its risk. It is a fact that
many people who traded in Forex lost a substantial amount of money and some of
these people are seasoned traders.

This is why it is very important for you, as a beginner trader in the Forex
market, to have the proper knowledge and education on how to trade in the Forex
market. Firstly, there are hundreds or even thousands of available websites in
the internet that offers Forex education. Some of these websites offer dummy
Forex trading where you can practice trading in the Forex market using dummy
money.

These programs will really take you closer to actually trading in Forex. Many
experts say that you'll never really understand how Forex really works until
you traded in the market. So, if you want to learn how to trade Forex, you may
want to sign up for a dummy account that numerous Forex trading websites offer.

With a dummy account, you can trade Forex by not using real money at all. With
this program you can practice your knowledge and skills in trading in the Forex
market and not waste money.

To get started in trading in this market, all you need is a computer with a
high speed internet connection, a funded Forex account, and a trading system.
These three simple things are enough to get you started in Forex trading.

In order for you to minimize the risk of losing money, you need to have some
basic knowledge in charting before you start trading. In most Forex trading
systems, Forex charts are there to assist you with your trades. Forex charts
are a visual representation of the exchange rates of currencies. This is where
you will mostly base your decisions to buy and sell currencies. You have to
learn how to read the different Forex charts in order for you to successfully
trade in the Forex market.

Each Forex chart is different although they represent the same fluctuations.
For example, in the daily Forex chart, you can evaluate market trends in the
past 24 hours to help you make decisions on the next 24 hours of trading. In
the hourly chart, you can use this chart to spot trends within the day. And, in
the 15 minute chart, where it can help you recent currency fluctuations in a 15
minute interval to help you decide on which currency to buy and sell.
Sometimes, there are 5 minute chart available to better help you get closer to
the action.

aside from the promising earning potential that you can have in the Forex
market, there are also underlying risks that you have to consider. It is
therefore wise to trade in this market with a proper investment plan and
strategy. If you are just starting out to trade in Forex, consider opening a
dummy account to help you practice trading Forex without risking money.

Forex Trading 102: Learning the Forex Trading Strategies

If you're a potential investment player who'd like to make it big in the
business and financial world, then you go for forex trading. The FOREX, also
known as the foreign exchange market is one of the largest financial markets in
the world with and estimate of $1.5 trillion turn-overs every day. Here are a
few strategies on how to make it big in the forex market.

Strategy One: Know your market. The best way to get advantage, earn profit and
minimize losses is to familiarize yourself with the market and how the whole
system works. In the forex market, the players are usually commercial banks,
central banks and firms involved in foreign trade, investment funds, broker
companies and other private individuals with large capital. With the speed and
high liquidity of asset, most companies engage in this business than in any
other trading venture. Transactions are done in a jiffy; there are no
membership fees and there is always the allure and promise of big, big profit.

Trading is done in pairs. The most commonly traded currencies are usually the
US Dollar, Japanese Yen, Euro, British Pound, Canadian Dollar, Australian
Dollar and the Swiss Franc. The more commonly traded currency pairs are the US
Dollar and the Japanese Yen, the Euro and the US Dollar, the Swiss Franc and
the US Dollar. In Forex trading, everything is speculative and virtual. There
is no actual product being sold or bought. The activity mostly consists of
computed entries made on the value of one currency against another. Say for
example, you can buy Euros with US Dollar, hoping that the Euro will increase
it value. Once its value rises, you can sell the Euro again, thus earning you
profit.

Strategy Two: Learn the language. There are three concepts you need to know in
the currency market. Pips refer to the increase of one hundredth of a percent
of the value of the currency pair you are trading. Usually each pip has a value
of $10 or $1. Volume is the quantity or amount of money being traded at one
particular time in the market. Buying is the acquisition of a particular
currency. A trader buys with the hopes that the price of the currency will
increase. Selling is putting a currency up for grabs in the market because of a
potential or possibility of a decrease in its value. There are also two
techniques of analysis usually used in this business -- the fundamental and the
technical analysis. Technical analysis is usually used by small and medium
players. Here, the primary point of analysis revolves on the price. Fundamental
analysis, on the other hand, is used by bigger companies and players with higher
capital as it involves looking at the other factors affecting the value of a
particular currency. In this type of analysis, the player also looks at the
situation of the country, particularly issues like political stability,
inflation rate, unemployment rate, and tax policies as these are seen to have
an effect on the currency's value.

Strategy Three: Develop a sound trading strategy. Your trading strategy would
depend on what kind of trader you are. The basic thing with developing a
trading strategy is to identify what kind of forex trader you are. A good
trading strategy should lessen, if not, eliminate losses. Plan also the size of
your transactions. It is better to conduct many different trades than one huge
transaction. Not only does it develop discipline, but it also lessens any
possible loss as only a fraction of the capital is affected. Part of a trading
strategy is developing the values of discipline and proper money management.

Strategy Four: Practice. Try paper trading, a great way to practice your
skills, see how the market works and get acquainted with the software and tools
being used. There are online brokers who allow free paper trades, which allows
practice and experience before doing it with real money.

Strategy Five: Choose the right forex dealer. Make sure that they are regulated
by the law. Take not of dealers with investment schemes that give out
too-good-to-be-true-just-false-hopes promises. Look at investment offers before
getting started.

Forex trading may seem easy and manageable. But the emotional stress, the
demands and challenges of being a forex trader requires more than just the
knowledge of the market. It requires more than just a keen and sensible head
for business. It's all about a gameplan, a strategy.

you to determine which kind of Forex trading software can benefit you most. Try
to consider your lifestyle when it comes to choosing which software you need.

really get the benefits you want. Also, choose software that will include real
time data streaming to keep you up to date with the different changes in the
Forex market.

great changes which brought about many inventions and critical lifestyle
changes for most people around the globe.

Life was quite simpler before, many people engaged in trading were able to
trade goods and/or services within a specific location. After a while, when it
was already possible to travel on the seas, trading was done from different
places. Today, almost everyone is engaged in a certain trade, for him or her to
be able to live a normal life able to get all their needs.

These days, people who have no work, or does not earn any income whatsoever
goes hungry. If you have no money, then you can't buy food, shelter, clothes,
and other necessities. We live in a modern world which requires people to be
effective and hard working individuals.

probably have heard of it already. In this type of financial market, currencies
are traded. Yes, currencies; and did you know that you can really earn a lot
from this kind of trading?

Before the internet was even introduced into the global market, forex trading
was only for big corporations, the rich ones or the elite. Most large
organizations also take part in this trade. But now, things are different.

Who is participating in forex market trades?

The forex market is all about trading between countries, the currencies of
those countries and the timing of investing in certain currencies. The FX
market is trading between counties, usually completed with a broker or a
financial company. Many people are involved in forex trading, which is similar
to stock market trading, but FX trading is completed on a much larger overall
scale. Much of the trading does take place between banks, governments, brokers
and a small amount of trades will take place in retail settings where the
average person involved in trading is known as a spectator. Financial market
and financial conditions are making the forex market trading go up and down
daily. Millions are traded on a daily basis between many of the largest
countries and this is going to include some amount of trading in smaller
countries as well.

From the studies over the years, most trades in the forex market are done
between banks and this is called interbank. Banks make up about 50 percent of
the trading in the forex market. So, if banks are widely using this method to
make money for stockholders and for their own bettering of business, you know
the money must be there for the smaller investor, the fund mangers to use to
increase the amount of interest paid to accounts. Banks trade money daily to
increase the amount of money they hold. Overnight a bank will invest millions
in forex markets, and then the next day make that money available to the public
in their savings, checking accounts and etc.

Commercial companies are also trading more often in the forex markets. The
commercial companies such as Deutsche bank, UBS, Citigroup, and others such as
HSBC, Braclays, Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan Chase, and still others such as
Goldman Sachs, ABN Amro, Morgan Stanley, and so on are actively trading in the
forex markets to increase wealth of stock holders. Many smaller companies may
not be involved in the forex markets as extensively as some large companies are
but the options are stil there.

Central banks are the banks that hold international roles in the foreign
markets. The supply of money, the availability of money, and the interest rates
are controlled by central banks. Central banks play a large role in the forex
trading, and are located in Tokyo, New York and in London. These are not the
only central locations for forex trading but these are among the very largest
involved in this market strategy. Sometimes banks, commercial investors and the
central banks will have large losses, and this in turn is passed on to
investors. Other times, the investors and banks will have huge gains.

The World Wide Forex market

Forex is a trading 'method' also known as FX or and foreign market exchange.
Those involved in the foreign exchange markets are some of the largest
companies and banks from around the world, trading in currencies from various
countries to create a balance as some are going to gain money and others are
going to lose money. The basics of forex are similar to that of the stock
market found in any country, but on a much larger, grand scale, that involves
people, currencies and trades from around the world, in just about any country.

Different currency rates happen and change every day. What the value of the
dollar may be one day could be higher or lower the next. The trading on the
forex market is one that you have to watch closely or if you are investing huge
amounts of money, you could lose large amounts of money. The main trading areas
for forex, happens in Tokyo, in London and in New York, but there are also many
other locations around the world where forex trading does take place.

The most heavily traded currencies are those that include (in no particular
order) the Australian dollar, the Swiss franc, the British pound sterling, the
Japanese yen, the Eurozone eruo, and the United States dollar. You can trade
any one currency against another and you can trade from that currency to
another currency to build up additional money and interest daily.

The areas where forex trading is taking place will open and close, and the next
will open and close. This is seen also in the stock exchanges from around the
world, as different time zones are processing order and trading during
different time frames. The results of any forex trading in one country could
have results and differences in what happens in additional forex markets as the
countries take turns opening and closing with the time zones. Exchange rates are
going to vary from forex trade to forex trade, and if you are a broker, or if
you are learning about the forex markets you want to know what the rates are on
a given day before making any trades.

The stock market Is generally based on products, prices, and other factors
within businesses that will change the price of stocks. If someone knows what
is going to happened before the general public, it is often known as inside
trading, using business secrets to buy stocks and make money -- which by the
way is illegal. There is very little, if any at all inside information in the
forex trading markets. The monetary trades, buys and sells are all a part of
the forex market but very little is based on business secrets, but more on the
value of the economy, the currency and such of a country at that time.

Every currency that is traded on the forex market does have a three letter code
associated with that currency so there is no misunderstanding about which
currency or which country one is investing with at the time. The eruo is the
EUR and the US dollar is known as the USD. The British pound is the GBP and the
Japanese yen is known as the JPY. If you are interested in contacting a broker
and becoming involved in the forex markets you can find many online where you
can review the company information and transactions before processing and
becoming involved in the forex markets.

How to Succeed in Online Forex Day Trading

Forex trading is the largest known financial market. Day or night, it doesn't
really matter; the trade goes on even as half of the world is asleep. It offers
a lot of opportunities for many organizations and individuals to make profit.
There are many day traders in the market, and if you think you can do it, why
not join the day traders.

Once you decide to start to day trading, don't expect to learn everything about
it in an instant. You will surely need to learn for some time, and you need to
exert a lot of effort. Practice makes perfect, and forex trading requires a lot
of it.

Before using real money, you can practice through simulated trading and do a
paper trade. Here you can incorporate all your trading techniques and see if
they actually work.

Don't be a scared to lose a certain amount of money, because any trade involves
a lot of it. But it doesn't mean that you should not limit your losses, you can
make use of stop orders. And most importantly, you should learn from your past
losses.

A good trader by day should be disciplined. Make discipline a habit in order to
make sound decisions, and act in accord with trading systems/strategies. This
way, you can do your trade in a consistent and reliable manner. Certain
situations require an individual to make decisions based on their pre-set
criteria and parameters.

You should make it a point to habitually follow your trading system/plan; this
way you can effectively evaluate the results of your plan. If your expectations
are not met, perhaps its time that you make certain adjustments and fine tuning,
so that your plan will still be of good use in the future.

Don't let your emotions rule you, especially when you're making trading
decisions. A day trader should always be disciplined, and once you attain your
objective, leave the market first. Oftentimes people plunge in deeper because
they are influenced by greed and fear.

There are also day traders who are quite reluctant to lose money. For instance
your stock goes down, and you're still hoping that after some time it will rise
again. And to your surprise, the share price goes further down. If only you were
not reluctant to lose money, you could have sold it the first time its price
went down, and prevent further loss.

A day trader should leave no room for fear and greed to take over; otherwise,
this will be the key to your losses.

If you're serious with your day trading, you can also do it at home. You would
need hardware and software requirements to put a sufficient platform at home
for online trading.

For your hardware requirement, you would need a computer with a Windows XP
operating system or the like. The monitor should not be less than nineteen
inches.

You must have a fast internet connection because day traders need to make fast
executions and confirmations of the trade. They also need to receive and
deliver quotes, news, and other pertinent market data. A fast internet
connection allows you to make your day trading in a timely fashion.

Execution services are available online, and it comes in two types: the
internet-based discount brokers and the online systems or the EDAT. The first
type varies on how customer orders are executed, reviewed, and confirmed. This
causes delay in completing a trade. On the other hand, the EDAT enables the
trader to contact specialists directly. This results to a much quicker
execution and confirmation of the orders.

Software platforms that are especially designed for day traders are often used
by the more serious ones because real time data are usually provided like stock
ticker and quotes, market indices and averages, charting, market stories, and
price alerts. However, you would need to make monthly payments because this
type of software usually charges fees.

Becoming a day trader is easy, but only if you are quite serious with this kind
of endeavors. Like any type of trade, it requires dedication, time and effort.
If you are able to put all of these things together, then you will reap profits
that you've never imagined.

Mini Forex Trading: Lesser Stakes, Greater Possibilities

Forex trading is one of the most viable options for someone who's looking at
bigger possibilities, bigger profit and greater ease in trading and business.
Because of it's high liquidity and speedy transactions, forex trading is
becoming a popular game among players in the field of business and marketing.
While it's traditionally for companies and corporations with big capital and
experience in the field, it has also proven itself to be a good venture for a
neophyte though what one calls a Mini Forex account or mini forex trading.

Mini Forex Basics

Mini Forex trading is good for people who have just started in the forex market
and with not enough funds to open a regular account. It requires a smaller
capital compared to regular forex accounts, a minimum of $300. With mini forex
trading, you can control a $10,000 currency position.

The key here is leverage. Because of leverage, a trader can trade in a
commodity more than the money available in his account. Say with a $250
deposit, one could trade a maximum of 5 mini lots. This kind of leverage is
greater than stocks or day trading. Of course, it is recommended to start with
a manageable leverage that allows greater flexibility in transactions.

What are the perks of mini forex trading? With just a small stake involved, you
get to enjoy free trading platform and benefits that regular forex traders get
to enjoy. These would include state-of-the art trading software, charts and
resources. With a leverage of 200:1, the trader can trade in a commodity
regardless of the amount of money available to him.

Mini forex trading also allows for lesser losses as the contract size is only
1/10th the size of a standard forex account. There is also greater flexibility
with regards to customizing trades and minimizing risks. Ideal for those with
smaller capital, the trader has a chance of investing in more areas of the
market with lesser risk as there is lesser capital to be lost. He need not be
hesitant with his transactions as there is lesser capital involved.

With the same freedom enjoyed by regular forex traders, a mini forex trader can
trade as many lots as he likes. Although the standard trade size is 10,000
units, you are free to trade as much as 50,000 units or more. In this way, the
trader also builds up his confidence in his trading skills at the same time
slowly increase his profit and trading position in the market. He gets to
manage his money before going for the higher stakes in regular forex trading.

The trader likewise gets to develop a sound trading strategy without getting
too emotionally involved in possible losses and profit. For practice, a newbie
in forex trading can practice through paper trading. But in the real market, he
can start small with mini forex trading. There is lesser capital involved and
the practice builds up the trader's trading gameplan for future explorations in
regular, higher stakes forex trading.

An Example

On a regular account, a 25-pip stop loss is equal to a loss of $250. Since a
mini forex account is just 1/10th of the standard forex account, this is
amounting to $25 only. If you trade in units of 10,000, the trader is given
more flexibility in terms of customizing his trades and lessening the risks of
loss.

They say that business is for the risk-taker. But if you're just starting out,
it's wise to be cautious and think about your moves. In the world of foreign
trading, mini forex accounts provide the wisest and best option especially for
a neophyte. It requires lesser capital, lesser emotional investment, and slowly
builds up your skills and confidence as a trader. In a way, it's a way to
prepare the trader for the higher stakes in the more advanced world of foreign
trading.

challenges and the stress of the market. And these, one can learn in a forex

a detailed discussion on doing technical and fundamental analysis and tools.

Values. More than the theories and the basics involved, a good forex trading
education should teach you proper money management and the development of a
proper trading disposition and psychology. As the stakes are upped, a trader
may become too emotionally involved. It is important that a forex trading
course develops the appropriate values needed in money trading, such as
discipline, patience and commitment.

Experience. A good forex trading course should provide real life experience
through apprenticeship. There is no better teacher than experience, they say,
and as forex trading is as real as it can get, forex courses should offer
avenues where the student can practice trading. Some courses have live
conference rooms or boards where the trader can learn to trade in real time or,
in some cases, in a simulated environment. These experiences should also have a
one-on-one feedback and forums for discussion and exchange of information and
lessons.

game, there are online sites offering courses and workshops on forex trading.

online forex trading, one can check and monitor the value of the currencies,
and even trade directly on the internet. It offers trading of almost 15

The Different Options You can Avail to Learn Forex Trading

Forex trading, a lot of people may already have heard of it, but not all know
what it is all about. One may often think that it is for the 'big' ones, big
businesses and organizations. But that is not so, in fact, there are a lot of
ordinary individuals who are into forex trading.

Different countries or nations have different currencies. But not all
currencies are traded in the FX market. There are seven major currencies traded
in the market. Forex trading is the buying and selling of currencies in pair.
You can possibly do the trade without a currency pair. A typical example is the
US dollars/Japanese Yen. The basic of forex trading is to buy a currency at a
lower price and sell it at a much higher price. But sometimes, having this
knowledge is not enough. Forex trading involves a lot of different things that
not all individuals have a proper knowledge on.

Forex trading takes place twenty four hours a day, so even when you're
sleeping, the trade goes on. The FX market is by far the largest financial
market in the whole world. That is why a lot of organizations and individuals
are attracted to do the trade.

Before, large speculators, banks and currency traders ruled the FX market, but
that is no longer true these days. There are now brokers who can help
individuals and small companies by breaking down inter-bank units.

If you're interested in forex trading, you can do it alone, but try to attend a
forex class first, or practice as an apprentice. The forex market is volatile,
and new traders may find it hard because of the risks that it involves.

The last two options are much better especially if you are new in the FX
market. This way, you can benefit a lot from having well-experienced
instructors. You are to have a real time experience which you can use later on
when you do your trade.

You have to understand the process of forex trading first. Remember that the FX
market has no boundaries or barriers. So before jumping into the market, you
have to know the right entry points.

Charting and mapping are also important aspects in forex trading. Charting
software are readily available, you can secure one so that you can learn about
it; as well as learning how to properly map it. Through this, you can see how
the market moves. And you can now make good decisions whether to buy or sell a
currency, and earn profits in return.

Another important thing to learn is forex trading psychology. You should know
how to properly deal with all your losses, of course you can't expect to gain
at all times. If for a short period you have made a lot of losses, perhaps its
time to stop just for sometime. Don't be carried away in doing the trade,
otherwise you may incur a lot of losses.

New starters who instantly gain a lot of profits may think that they know too
much. But it helps to know that it is not the same all throughout. Good profits
oftentimes encourage more people to trading so much, without thinking of the
risks. Discipline is one trait that you should practice and learn.

Starters, who go through forex trading on their own, without any help, are
likely not to succeed in this kind of trade, not unless he or she is 'gifted'.
Although they may enjoy a certain amount of profit, time will come when won't
be able to keep up with the trade without knowledge of forex trading and its
technical aspects.

As a trader, you alone can decide which option is best for you. Learning forex
trading requires dedication, if you can pull it off on your own, good for you.
But if you think that you need a little help, you are free to choose from the
many forex trading classes offered; or you can be a broker's apprentice. Anyway
you choose, you can learn so much about forex trading. And all your learning
experiences can be of great importance once you do your actual trade.

There is no substitute to proper learning. It gives you a good grip about the
trade, and you can be confident that you're making good decisions. These would
reflect a lot from the profits that you are about to gain.

Creating Profitable Forex Trading Systems in Five Easy Steps

One rule of thumb that every aspiring entrepreneur should remember is that to
make huge profits, you should know how to do it by yourself -- and not rely on
other's efforts. Being independent from other people will help you determine
what things are best for your business.

Such rule applies on all types of investments, including foreign currency
trading, or mostly known as Forex trading. It cannot be denied that Forex is
the largest existing market around the world, which is estimated to have an
excess of 2 trillion U.S. dollars worth of foreign currencies are traded each
day. It is larger than the magnitude of the New York Stock Exchange, which is
approximately 50 billion U.S. dollars. Thus, Forex market exceeds all combined
equity markets around the world.

With such huge wealth circulating around the Forex market, one of your
financial goals is to grab a major slice of that $2 trillion average daily
turnover in the market. How you will be able to get a substantial portion of
that average turnover if you do not know how you will handle your Forex
business? Although you cannot live in the market alone (you need business
partners and/or financial advisers to help you along), only you can determine
what the best Forex business there is for you.

To get huge profits out of your Forex trading career, you need to build your
own profitable system -- a trading system that will bring your not just
hundreds but thousands of dollars worth of Forex revenues. Such trading system
is available on the market, but as previously mentioned, you need to be
independent -- and you need to have your own Forex trading system that will
help you achieve your financial goals.

For new traders, it is difficult for them to device their own trading system
since they do not have too much knowledge about the Forex market. However, even
a neophyte trader can device a trading system that will fit on his personal
preference and needs -- in just five easy steps!

Before we discuss the five easy steps towards a profitable Forex trading
system, you need to learn first the three main characteristics of a successful
Forex trading system. These are as follows:

1. A successful Forex trading system is simple. There is no need for a
complicated trading system with too many rules. It is a proven truth that
simple systems work better than complicated ones, and they have higher chances
of success despite of the "brutal" characteristic of Forex trading.

2. A successful Forex trading system cuts losses and runs profits. Keep in
mind that you need a trading system that gets the huge possible profits and
eliminates losses quickly, if not instantly.

3. A successful Forex trading system follows long-term trends. You will never
cover your losses if you are just generating small profits. Keep in mind that
the Forex market is worth $2 trillion U.S. dollars, thus there is no point in
trading in exchange for just small profits if you have the opportunity to make
trades for larger revenues. Focus on long-term trends and you will be able to
see better results.

Now, here are the five easy steps in building a profitable Forex trading system:

1. As previously mentioned, your trading system must be as simple as possible.
Integrate few yet essential rules and an extensive investment management system.

2. Always look for long-term trends (preferably on a weekly basis), then shift
to daily charts and to time entry. This will help you analyze market trends
efficiently.

3. The ideal way of trading foreign currencies is through breakout method.

4. Always watch for any break that you will note on your chart, which is
commonly confirmed by stochastic crossed with bearish divergence. This will be
your great timing tool whether you will enter a certain deal or not.

5. You must integrate effective time management within your system. Time is
gold and is one of your precious resources. Design a trading system that is
time efficient -- where you can maximize the potential of your time resources
to generate huge profits.

Get away with complicated systems; it will just ruin your entire Forex trading
career. Build a simpler one and see for yourself how profitable it is.

with a forex trading system. The very first thing that a system usually involves
is investment of money. Some companies would require you to invest as low as

payments. Forex systems greatly vary, and it depends largely on the company
offering such service.

invested. Offline trading systems usually involves a lot of paperwork; while
with an online system, you can instantly invest, trade, move, and remove money

right brokers in case you may need to make additional decisions in the future.
You must be involved with a company which you can communicate with any time
during a business day. That particular company should be able to provide you
with a telephone number, fax number, and email address. Steer clear from
companies which do not disclose such information.

Without the right trading system, you can't trade effectively. Therefore you
must choose a system which is suited for you as an individual. You must
consider the trading style and the risk that it involves. A system which
focuses more in risk and money management techniques is a good one. Look for a
company who has been in business for many years and those with proven
professional experience. It must also provide you with tools and strategies
that will help you in developing your very own online trading system. If you
select the right company, you can find one that is of best value for your money.

first things that you should learn in forex. There are three factors usually

amounts or pips/month.

biggest decrease in equity in the past. In comparing different systems, you
should take a close look on its historical drawdown.

ratio. The system should have consistency and you can effectively tell this by
looking into their monthly or quarterly, and yearly results.

lot from your investment.

Major Components of Forex Trading Strategy

Before, the forex market was limited only to long-term investors, banks and
people who have greater capitals. The trading occurs via an agent or voice
broker who will inform clients on what is going on. Later on, it was been
replaced by a computerized automated systems. This was the early form of forex
trading strategy.

The trader which is either home-based or office-based or retail investor can
possibly trade on real time with different banks with an aid of a broker. The
broker then uses the computerized platforms of trading. It contains traders on
live desks which places the trades on the broker's books or on real investors.
However, when the trade was placed in the broker's book, 95% of the money will
be lost by the traders. So the brokers take this is an advantage on them.

Forex trading strategy comprises two major components. The first component is
technical analysis. The technical area is based from the charts. It uses a
mathematical formula to observe the market movements. The traders learn about
announcements and news on economics which influences forex markets. Its
fundamental side is helpful in proper identification of the do's and don'ts.

Technical analysis uses chart indicators. It is helpful in determining the
areas of resistance and support. The situation where the price reverses, stop
or get stuck are revealed. The method that is very accurate and popular in
calculations of the levels of resistance and support is the Fibonacci. Seven
hundred fifty years ago, Fibonacci discovered a sequential number form. Its
proportions are also found in nature such as sunflower seeds, and pineapple
rinds. This method is commonly learned in mathematics during your high school
days, called as Fibonacci sequence. It says about finding the next number given
with a series of numbers.

If Fibonacci numbers are put adjacent to each other, the percentage ratios are
obtained. It can then be plotted on the chart. However, you don't need to
become a math wizard just to do this. The charting forex software is able to do
the Fibonacci sequence for you. The key areas of resistance and support are
potentially revealed to you as you move along the charts. The Fibonacci
sequence combined with proper indicators can show the strength and momentum of
the latest market condition. It will help you create a strategy that will be
most profitable to you just by basing on this mathematical rule. The rules
clearly states that history can really be repeated, as what has happened before
in the forex market can still happen in the future.

The second component is the fundamental analysis. Each day, there are figures
being disseminated to reveal some economic circumstances of a particular
country. Take for example, non-farm payrolls that can possibly bring
unpredictable effect on the forex markets. The impacts will depend on the
previous data and the figures implications. The most important rule for
beginners even for veterans is to keep away from the market when important
announcements take place.

Forex trading profits are being made almost similar to a traditional business.
The procedure is very simple. You are going to buy something at a lower price
then sell it at higher prices. The only difference is that in forex trading
this can be reversible.

The process is very easy. A trade is being placed either in the sell or buy
categories. Then the base currency will automatically buy or sell its opposite
currency in pairs. The price will lively change every second. Take for
instance; you purchased the GBP/USD pair. It literally means that you have
purchased the pound currency and sold the dollar currency. You want a rise on
the pound's value which will later on have a higher price when you resell it in
the forex market. That would make a profit on the value difference.

If the brokers allow you to have 200:1 capital leverage, then you can possibly
control a lot of money than what you really have. It is because you have bought
one currency and sold the other. So, your capital can stay unmoved. The only
crucial part which should be considered are the proportions which can be either
gained or lost whenever changes in currency pair values occurs. Other than that,
the basic forex trading strategies are great.

indicators.

sufficient knowledge and skills to analyze charts and spot market trends, you
might as well do the signal trading yourself. This can save you a lot of money.

liquid market, you have to think not just about the potential income you may
make, but also the losses that may happen.

to lose money on the first few months of trading. If you cannot afford to lose
money, then Forex trading is not for you.

Big earning potentials in the Forex market are very much true. So, if you have
the money for it, consider signal trading as it can be beneficial for you.
Always remember that although hiring an analyst or a broker to give you alerts
in signal trading can cost a lot of money, you should also think about how
professional these people are in analyzing trends in the market. You can really
minimize the risk of losing money in the Forex market if you do signal trading.

Forex Trading: Learning About the Market

You can never hide the fact that people need money. Money buys everything you
need to live a comfortable life. You use it to purchase your everyday food,
clothes to keep you warm, fuel for your car, and you use it to pay for bills.

Money is necessary in order for you to provide a comfortable life for your
family. This is why you work, and this is why people put up businesses. It is
true that earning money can be difficult for the average person. However, it is
way better than depending on the government to provide you with food.

People have ambitions that requires hard work. Depending on welfare alone can
never make your dreams come true.

If you are a regular person, who earns a decent salary but still wants to earn
extra cash in order for you to afford that dream vacation you saw in a TV ad or
perhaps buy that huge TV you have always wanted, you should consider investing
your savings.

Investing your savings can only mean two things. Either you can make it grow,
or lose it all. It may have some risks but if you do it right, you can really
make a lot of money and afford those things you never thought you can ever have.

One great way to invest your money in is by investing it in the largest, most
liquid financial market in the world. This kind of market is called the Forex
market. In this market, you simply have to buy and sell currencies of the world
with hopes of making a profit. The point of all this is that you have to buy low
and sell high in order to make a profit out of your investment. Here's a clearer
explanation on what traders do in the Forex market. For example, when a trader
purchases a particular currency at a cheap price, the trader will expect the
value to rise. Once the value of the particular currency he or she sells rises
as expected, you can sell it at a much higher price, hence, getting your
investment back together with the profit.

Trading in Forex will require you to trade in pairs. Because you purchase
currency, you sell another at the same time. There are a lot of currency pairs
in the Forex market. However, the most commonly traded currency pairs in the
Forex market are: USD/GBP, USD/JPY, USD/CHF, and GBP/USD. These four are the
most popular currency pairs traded in the Forex market and where people are
more likely to gain income.

Although trading in the Forex market can really give you the chance of earning
a lot of money, it is also a fact that you can also lose a lot of money. This
is because Forex is traded on margin. For example, with a 1 percent margin,
your 1000 dollars can give you leverage of 1000 dollars. This means that your
rate of return will be 100 percent of each percentage change upwards. However,
your loss will also be equally great if the market conditions went against you.

This is why you have to have the proper skills and knowledge about the Forex
market before you begin to trade. Also, you need to understand that when you
invest in this market, make sure you can afford to lose what you invest. This
is not necessarily attractive but if you want to make money, you also have to
be prepared to lose money.

If you are an inexperienced Forex trader, you should consider hiring a Forex
broker and analysts to guide you in your money-making venture. You can also
consider opening a dummy account or taking a Forex trading course in your local
business school or in online schools.

Knowing the basics in Forex trading can be very beneficial. So, try and look
for some time where you can practice your trading skills and strategies in
dummy accounts or attending Forex trading courses.

These are the things you should know about Forex trading and the Forex market.
If you want to go and earn that money you need for whatever reasons, try
investing in the Forex market. If you do it right, you can be sure that you can
earn a lot of money through Forex trading.

Always remember that on whatever things you invest in, whether it would be a
business or in the world's largest financial market, you should always consider
that there would always be risks involved.

Forex Trading: Information that You Should Always Watch Out For

Getting the necessary and the right information is one of the most important
things in order to be successful.

In a company, in the military, in the government, and virtually in any kind of
organization, getting the right information is necessary to make the right
decision. This is where all decisions are based from. Information plays a vital
role in the society.

For example, in the military, making the right decisions during war or even
during peacetime is necessary to save and protect lives. In the business world,
it is also necessary to get the right information to make the right decision in
order for a company to grow and profit.

Most wrong decisions are usually made because of lack of information or because
of getting the wrong information.

Here's another example on what happens when decision makers get the wrong
information. Countless leaders of countries have been ousted because of one
minor glitch in the information that their advisers gave them.

It cannot be stressed enough that it is necessary for everyone to get the right
information. After getting the information, you should study it, and formulate a
decision that you think is right for the current situation.

This is also true in the financial market, such as the Forex market.

The Forex market is the largest and the most liquid market in the world which
operates 24 hours a day and generates currency exchanges up to two trillion
dollars each day. This market has no centralized location as trades are open 24
hours a day in different parts of the world.

It is a fact that the Forex market made lots of people rich and also taken a
lot of people in the brink of financial collapse. The Forex market can really
be a difficult market for you, as an investor. It can only mean two things,
either you make it big by getting lots of money or you can really lose big time.

With the constant oscillation of currency value in this market, it is necessary
for you, as an investor to obtain the right information to base your decisions
from. The right and wrong information or late information can mean the
difference of you hitting the jackpot by earning lots of money or you losing a
lot of money.

Having the necessary skills and knowledge about the Forex market is simply not
enough for an investor to be successful. It is a known fact that there are lots
of seasoned Forex investors or traders who have lost a lot of money in this
financial market. Some even got into debt or bankruptcy.

This is why you should first consider your options whether you should join the
Forex market or not. However, the fact that you can make lots of money in this
market can really attract you. Besides, the Forex market can offer you a chance
to make the big bucks.

So, if you want to join the Forex market or if you already have an active,
funded account, you should make sure that you have access to the right kind of
information.

It is recommended that you should hire technical and/or fundamental analysts or
brokers if you don't know a thing about Forex charts and graphs. The news also
plays an important role in the Forex market.

These people can help you make the right kind of decision by informing you with
all the necessary information on what currency you should buy and sell.

Although they will charge you a fee for their services, you can be sure that
you will be getting the right information on time that will help you in your
decision-making. So, to make it short, you should hire these people's services.

Even if you know how to read the charts, there are simply too many things that
you have to consider; there are just simply so many indicators about the
different aspects in the Forex market that you should keep an eye on. Simply
reading one kind of chart can be very difficult. Try combining it with another
chart, and not to mention that you still have to make decisions.

Always remember, if you want to be successful in the world's largest financial
market in the world, you should get informed with the right information on
time. You should always keep in mind that the information that analysts and
brokers provide you is the key to success.

Each time you encounter a new endeavor, activity, or thing, the first to come
into your mind is to learn about that particular thing or activity. So you see,
no matter what we do, education continues. And this is especially true with
forex trading.

Statistics have shown that over 94% professional traders lose a lot of money
every day in forex trading alone. But don't be discouraged; in fact why not use
that piece of information to strive hard to get a forex trading education.

The financial market changes by the minute, or even by the second. Who knows
which currencies are a good buy and which aren't. Most traders, specially the
starters, believe that they can predict what is about to happen in forex
trading. But you see there is more to predicting the market; you need to
educate yourself still.

First things first, you must have a forex trading system which contains the key
elements, namely: money management, risk, and execution. If you have a well
developed system, which gives a lot of weight to money and risk management,
over time you can actually carry on draw downs while expecting consistent
returns.

Forex trading is not just about buying low currencies and then selling them
when the price is high. Profitable traders can teach you more than just
discipline, because you also need to learn about detachment. Ask a professional
trader to show and guide you how it is done.

You must have the proper mindset in order to be a successful forex trader. To
achieve this, your capital should have a positive return. It is not all about
profits especially when you're just a beginner. You should first determine if
you have a reasonable return of your capital.

Most successful forex traders have undergone some sort of education. Since
forex trading is a high risk endeavor, it is not wise to instantly jump into
the trade.

If you purely rely on experience and instinct, you may not likely succeed in
forex trading. But if you have undergone a forex trading education, you are
more capable to handle demands and the stress that comes along with the trade.

Through forex education, you can learn all about the market mechanics, reading
the forex chart, how software works, how it is closed, the right time to bid,
and many more. It is the best possible route to take before plunging into forex
trading.

The FX market is volatile, and you can understand the situation better if you
know how to read charts. It will be easier for you to understand the different
reasons behind these shifts, and can greatly help in minimizing the risks that
you are going to undertake.

The very first things that you'll learn in forex trading education are the
basics. It includes margin concepts, order types, rollovers, bids, and
leveraging. Aside from that, you can also learn about fundamental and technical
analysis. And lastly, you should learn about trading psychology which can teach
you about patience, discipline, and commitment.

It is also good if you can learn about the financial market's history. And
knowing the past mistakes made by other traders will teach us how to avoid such
circumstances. You can get a forex education online or in a traditional class.

Having a forex education is an added advantage compared to those who haven't
had any. This is especially helpful for starters, and even for those who have
been in trading for some time.

Most professional traders highly recommend some form of forex education. With a
little background and knowledge about the trade, it is a sure fire way to
succeed in this line of trade. Instead of making wild guesses, why not take a
forex education class, and make educated decisions when doing the actual trade.

traders get confused on which Forex broker they should hire. With all the Forex
brokers out there that offers great Forex trading income and quotations, you
will find it hard to choose a good and reputable Forex broker.

With a little research, you can find the right Forex broker who can be trusted.

your own. The first thing you need to find out about a particular Forex broker
with the amount of clients they serve. The more clients they serve the more
chances that these brokers are trusted. You should also know the amount of
trades these brokers are conducting.

risks.

Effective Advices for Forex Trading Beginners

Not all people are familiar with forex trading. In fact, most people think that
when you talk about forex trading, it has something to do with stocks or bonds.
But forex trading is different from stocks or bonds. It involves the trading of
currency pairs. Currencies are traded in pairs, and you can't find a particular
currency without a pair. The major currencies being traded are chosen above the
rest because they are stable and have a greater value than other foreign
currencies.

Every time a new comer arrives in the market, the very first ones to take
notice of them are what you call frauds. That is why, if you're new in forex
trading, you need to take some advice. It doesn't hurt to ask for advice from
the ones who are already engaged in forex trading. In fact, you can make use of
their advice for your own good, and even to your advantage.

Since forex trading is globally available, it is not surprising if there are
frauds that are able to infiltrate the financial market. To safeguard people
from these frauds, they must be made aware of these growing fact, so that they
will be able to protect their trading career.

The opportunities that forex trading provides for different individuals, firms,
and organizations is growing rapidly every year. And accompanying this growth is
the widespread growth of different scams related with forex trading. But you
should not worry because there are a lot of legitimate companies or firms that
can help you in forex trading.

The best thing to do is to find these legitimate companies to stay away from
fraudulent ones. However, most new traders fall prey to these scammers because
of their savory offers.

A piece of advice: stay away from companies or firms which advertise high
profits for minimal risks. In today's financial market, if you want to earn
high profits, then you are likely subjected to high risks as well. These things
always go together.

Always stay on the safe side. If you're looking for a forex trading broker, and
of course, each broker is part of a certain company, make sure that you select a
government registered company. In signing any contract with them, double check
if they are registered or certified brokers. This is a good step to undertake
in order to prevent any misfortune that you might encounter in the future.

The job of reducing the risk is entirely yours, not that of the broker; so if
the company offers or promises little risks, guaranteed profits, and the like,
that is a sure sign that they are there to make a fool out of you.

Professional trader or not, a little use of the common sense can go a long way.

Before doing any forex trade, do your homework. Research all the necessary
details about trading. Ever heard of inter-bank market? Stay away from
companies which lure you into trading in the inter-bank market because the
currency transactions are negotiated in a wobbly network of large companies and
financial institutions.

If a certain company does not disclose any information about their background,
that should serve as a red flag. It means that you should continue doing
transactions with them. Nor is it advisable to transfer/send cash through the
mail or the internet. Practice caution in everything you do, and you'll be more
than sure that you are always safe.

Fraudelent companies often solicit services and advertise soaring pressure
tactics to attract you in participating or joining their services. Offshore
companies which guarantees no risk and return of profit is a big no. Always be
skeptical and don't jump in to any instant offer that comes your way.

You can decide for yourself. After all these pieces of advice, it will still
depend entirely on you whether you will apply it or not. You are the one who
will be subject to fraudulent individuals or companies. If you want to protect
your forex trading career, carefully consider these things.

With patience and a little diligence, you can expect for a successful forex
trading career. These frauds which abound in the financial market will not
succeed if only people are alert and skeptical.

also backfire to you, as the Forex trader. This is because you may run the risk
of stopping your trades when the value of the currency goes higher than
expected.

It is up to you to decide if you will be using this strategy or not.

These are some of the strategies you can use when trading in the Forex market.

you can enter or exit the market anytime you wish to. This is to minimize the
risk and there is also no daily trading limit.

Forex market and be good in doing so:

* The first and the last ticks are usually the most expensive. So, for most
  traders, the rule of thumb is getting in late and get out early.

* When you are losing, you want to minimize the risk of losing more money.
  So, don't add money when you are losing.

* Select trades that move along with the trend. This can minimize the risk of
  losing money and maximize your chances of profits.

There are quite a few tools you can use when trading in the Forex market. One
is the Forex charts. For the speculator, the chart is the most important tool
that you can use to determine market trends and accurately predict the future
value of the currency. Although it isn't actually 100% accurate, you can use
the Forex charts as a guide to what's happening in the market.

You need to know how to read the different charts involved in the Forex market.
There are daily charts, hourly charts, 15 minute charts and even 5 minute charts
to get you closer to the action. You can compare each of the data in the chart
to spot market trends and at the same time, spot potential money making trends.

read charts effectively and you will be well on your way to become successful
in the Forex market.

minimize the risks in Forex trading and maximize your earning potential.
Depending on your skills and how you apply your strategies, you can really make
a lot of money in the Forex market. However, to be a truly successful Forex
trader, you need to accept the fact that you will sometimes lose money. Never
get discouraged when you do. Analyze where you made your mistake, think of a
solution to get back what you lost and continue trading.

FOREX, trading foreign currency

FOREX trading is all about trading foreign currency, stocks, and similar type
of products. The currency of one country is weighed against the currency of
another country to determine value. The value of that foreign currency is taken
into consideration when trading stocks on the FOREX markets. Most countries have
control over the value of that countries value, involving the currency, or
money. Those who are often involved in the FOREX markets include banks, large
businesses, governments, and financial institutions.

What makes the FOREX market different from the stock market? A forex market
trade is one that involves at least two countries, and it can take place
worldwide. The two countries are one, with the investor, and two, the country
the money is being invested in. Most all transactions taking place in the FOREX
market are going to take place through a broker, such as a bank.

What really makes up the FOREX markets? The foreign exchange market is made up
of a variety of transactions and counties. Those involved in the FOREX market
are trading in large volumes, large amounts of money. Those who are involved in
the FOREX market are generally involved in cash businesses, or in the trade of
very liquid assets that you can sell and buy fast. The market is large, very
large. You could consider the FOREX market to be much larger than the stock
market in any one country overall. Those involved in the FOREX market are
trading daily twenty-four hours a day and sometimes trading is completed on the
weekend, but not all weekends.

You might be surprised at the number of people that are involved in FOREX
trading. In the years 2004, almost two trillion dollars was an average daily
trading volume. This is a huge number for the number of daily transactions to
take place. Think about how much a trillion dollars really is and then times
that by two, and this is the money that is changing hands every day!

The FOREX market is not something new, but has been used for over thirty years.
With the introduction of computers, and then the internet, the trading on the
FOREX market continues to grow as more and more people and businesses alike
become aware of the availablily of this trading market. FOREX only accounts for
about ten percent of the total trading from country to country, but as the

Forex trading, where do customers go?

Forex trading uses currency and stock markets from a variety of countries to
create a trading market where millions and millions are traded and exchanged
daily. This market is similar to the stock market, as people buy and sell, but
the market and the over all results are much much larger. Those involved in the
forex trading markets include the Deutsche bank, UBS, Citigroup, and others such
as HSBC, Braclays, Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan Chase, and still others such as
Goldman Sachs, ABN Amro, Morgan Stanley, and so on.

have millions of dollars to invest daily, to earn interest and this is just one
method of how banks make money on the money you save in their bank. Think about
the bank that you deal with all the time. Do you know if you can go there, and
obtain money from 'another' country if you are heading out on vacation? If not,
that bank is most likely not involved in forex trading. If you have to know if
your bank is involved in forex trading, you can ask any manager or you can look
at the financial information sheets that banks are to report to the public on a
quarterly baiss.

prop up the investments of people involved in certain types of hedge funds, and
in the markets overseas. The forex market could have your money invested in one
market one day, and the next day your money is invested in another country. The
daily changes are determined by your broker or financial institution. When
reading your statements and learning more about your account, you will find
that every type of currency has three letters that will represent that currency.

For example, the United States dollars is USD, the Japanese yen is JPY, and the
British pound sterling will read as GBP. You will also find that for every
transaction on your account listing you will see information that looks like
this: JPYzzz/GBPzzz. This means that you took your Japanese yen money and

through out the forex markets.

Forex markets trading by investment management firms are the companies you can
trust with your money. You want to find a company that has been dealing with
forex trading since the early seventies, and not someone just new on the block
so you get the most for your hard earned money. It is important that you beware
of companies that are popping up online, and often times from foreign countries
that are stating they can get you involved in the forex markets and trading.

that you need a minimum of $250 or $500 while other companies will need $1000
or $10,000. The company you are dealing with will set limits in how much you
need to open an account with their company. The scams that are online will tell

more about that company and where they are doing business before investing any
money, this is for your own protection while dealing in forex trading and
markets online.

Forex Trading -- should you invest?

Forex trading is all about putting your money into other currencies, so you can
gain the interest for the night, for time period or the difference in trading
money all around. Forex trading does involve other assets along with money, but
because you are investing in other countries and in other businesses that are
dealing in other currencies the basis for the money you make or lose will be
based on the trading of money.

Constant trading is done in the forex markets as time zones will vary and the
markets will open in one country while another is near closing. What happens in
one market will have an effect on the other countries forex markets, but it is
not always bad or good, sometimes the margins of trading are near each other.

A forex market will be present when two countries are involved in trading, and
when money is traded for goods, services or a combination of these things.
Currency is the money that trades hands, from one to another. Often times, a
bank is going to be the source of forex trading, as millions of dollars are
traded daily. There is nearly two trillion dollars traded daily on the forex
market. Should you get involved in forex trading? If you are already involved
in the stock market, you have some idea of what forex trading really is all
about.

The stock market involves buying shares of a company, and you watch how that
company does, waiting for a bigger return. In the forex markets, you are
purchasing items or products, or goods, and you are paying money for them. As
you do this, you are gaining or losing as the currency exchange differs daily
from country to country. To better prepare you for the forex markets you can
learn about trading and purchasing online using free 'game' like software.

You will log on and create an account. Entering information about what you are
interested in and what you want to do. The 'game' will allow you to make
purchases and trades, involving different currencies, so you can then see first
hand what a gain or loss will be like. As you continue on with this fake account
you will see first hand how to make decisions based on what you know, which
means you will have to read about the market changes or you will have to take a
brokers information at value and play from there.

If you, as an individual want to be involved in forex trading, you must get
involved through broker, or a financial institution. Individuals are also known
as spectators, even if you are investing money because the amount of money you
are investing is minimal compared to the millions of dollars that are invested
by governments and by banks at any given time. This does not mean you can't get
involved. Your broker or investment advisor will be able to tell you more about
how you can be involved in forex trading. In the US, there are many regulations
and laws in regards to who can handle forex trading for US citizens so if you
are searching the internet for a broker, be sure you read the print, and the
information about where the company is located and if it is legal for you to do
business with that company.

Forex markets -- trading internationally

Forex market trading is trading money, currencies worldwide. Most all countries
around the world are involved in the forex trading market, where money is bought
and sold, based on the value of that currency at the time. As some currencies
are not worth much, it is not going to be traded heavily, as the currency is
worth more, additional brokers and bankers are going to choose to invest in
that market at that time.

Forex trading does take place daily, where almost two trillion dollars are
moved every day -- that is a huge amount of money. Think about how many
millions it does take to bring about a total of a trillion and then consider
that this is done on a daily basis -- if you want to get involved in where the
money is, forex trading is one 'setting' where money is exchanging hands daily.

The currencies that are traded on the forex markets are going to be those from
every country around the world. Every currency has it own three-letter symbol
that will represent that country and the currency that is being traded. For
example, the Japanese yen is the JPY and the United Stated dollar is USD. The
British pound is the GBP and the Euro is the EUR. You can trade within many
currencies in one day, or you can trade to a different currency every day. Most
all trades through a broker, or those any company are going to require some type
of fee so you want to be sure about the trade you are making before making too
many trades which are going to involve many fees.

Trades between markets and countries are going to happen every day. Some of the
most heavily trades occur between the Euro and the US dollar, and then the US
dollar and the Japanese yen, and then of the other most often seen trades is
between the British pound and the US dollar. The trades happen all day, all
night, and thought out various markets. As one country opens trading for the
day another is closing. The time zones across the world affect how the trading
takes place and when the markets are open.

When you are making a transaction from one market to another, involving one
currency to another you will notice the symbols are used to explain the
transactions. All transactions are going to look something like this
EURzzz/USDzzz the zzz is to represent the percentages of trading for the
percentage of the transaction. Other instances could look like this AUSzzz/USD
and so on. When reading and reviewing your forex statements and online
information you will understand it all much better if you are to remember these
symbols of the currencies that are involved.

FOREX (Foreign Exchange Market)

The foreign exchange market is also known as FX or it is also found to be
referred to as the FOREX. All three of these have the same meaning, which is
the trade of trading between different companies, banks, businesses, and
governments that are located in different countries. The financial market is
one that is always changing leaving transactions required to be completed
through brokers, and banks. Many scams have been emerging in the FOREX
business, as foreign companies and people are setting up online to take
advantage of people who don't realize that foreign trade must take place
through a broker or a company with direct participation involved in foreign
exchanges.

Cash, stocks, and currency is traded through the foreign exchange markets. The
FOREX market will be present and exist when one currency is traded for another.
Think about a trip you may take to a foreign country. Where are you going to be
able to 'trade your money' for the value of the money that is in that other
country? This is FOREX trading basis, and it is not available in all banks, and
it is not available in all financial centers. FOREX is a specialized trading
circumstance.

Small business and individuals often times looking to make big money, are the
victims of scams when it comes to learning about FOREX and the foreign trade
markets. As FOREX is seen as how to make a quick buck or two, people don't
question their participation in such an event, but if you are not investing
money through a broker in the FOREX market, you could easily end up losing
everything that you have invested in the transaction.

Scams to be wary of A FOREX scam is one that involves trading but will turn out
to be a fraud; you have no chance of getting your money back once you have
invested it. If you were to invest money with a company stating they are
involved in FOREX trading you want read closely to learn if they are permitted
to do business in your country. Many companies are not permitted in the FOREX
market, as they have defrauded investors before.

In the last five years, with the help of the Internet, FOREX trading and the
awareness of FOREX trading has become all the rage. Banks are the number one
source for FOREX trading to take place, where a trained and licensed broker is
going to complete transactions and requirements you set forth. Commissions are
paid on the transaction and this is the usual.

Another type of scam that is prevalent in the FOREX markets is software that
will aid you in making trades, in learning about the foreign markets and in
practicing so you can prepare yourself for following and making trades. You
want to be able to rely on a program or software that is really going to make a
difference. Consult with your financial broker or your bank to learn more about
FOREX trading, the FX markets and how you can avoid being the victim while
investing in these markets.

Foreign exchange market is different from the stock market

The foreign exchange market is also known as the FX market, and the forex
market. Trading that takes place between two counties with different currencies
is the basis for the fx market and the background of the trading in this market.
The forex market is over thirty years old, established in the early 1970's. The
forex market is one that is not based on any one business or investing in any
one business, but the trading and selling of currencies.

The difference between the stock market and the forex market is the vast
trading that occurs on the forex market. There is millions and millions that
are traded daily on the forex market, almost two trillion dollars is traded
daily. The amount is much higher than the money traded on the daily stock
market of any country. The forex market is one that involves governments,
banks, financial institutions and those similar types of institutions from
other countries. The

What is traded, bought and sold on the forex market is something that can
easily be liquidated, meaning it can be turned back to cash fast, or often
times it is actually going to be cash. From one currency to another, the
availability of cash in the forex market is something that can happen fast for
any investor from any country.

The difference between the stock market and the forex market is that the forex
market is global, worldwide. The stock market is something that takes place
only within a country. The stock market is based on businesses and products
that are within a country, and the forex market takes that a step further to
include any country.

The stock market has set business hours. Generally, this is going to follow the
business day, and will be closed on banking holidays and weekends. The forex
market is one that is open generally twenty four hours a day because the vast
number of countries that are involved in forex trading, buying and selling are
located in so many different times zones. As one market is opening, another
countries market is closing. This is the continual method of how the forex
market trading occurs.

The stock market in any country is going to be based on only that countries
currency, say for example the Japanese yen, and the Japanese stock market, or
the United States stock market and the dollar. However, in the forex market,
you are involved with many types of countries, and many currencies. You will
find references to a variety of currencies, and this is a big difference
between the stock market and the forex market.

Automated Forex Trading System: Faster Execution Means Increased Trade Volumes

The concept of automated Forex trading system is mind-catching.

Before the automation of the Forex market, exchange-traded futures market was
the first to switch on automation. Then, the traders on the Interbank spot FX
market decided to catch up with the latest trend and moved too to the new
system.

Automated Forex trading system enables traders to execute their trade on spot
Forex market automatically and anytime of the day, based on existing technical
indicators and custom trading rules. There are various features included in the
automated trading system, such as:

* Automatic trailing stops especially if the trader is losing in a particular
  trade position;
* Account equity management;
* Stop and/or limit orders;
* Discretionary market orders; and
* Various technical analysis indicators within your discretion for enabling
  trend-following systems.

Automated Forex trading systems supports most of the following indicators (the
technical support will depend on the technology used as well as the available
features of the system):

* WMA (weighted moving average);
* EMA (exponential moving average);
* SMA (simple moving average);
* VMA (variable moving average);
* TMA (triangular moving average);
* TSMA (time series moving average);
* WATR (wilder's average true range);
* VHF (vertical horizontal filter);
* Standard deviation;
* Trailing stops;
* Mass index;
* Fixed limits and stops, and others.

The success of the automation process to the Forex market is attributed to
several factors, such as the following:

* Its ability to perform or execute trades in real time. Because of the
automation, a trader can close trades within a few milliseconds. It is
impossible in manual systems, as previous trades are normally closed after
several hours. In addition, there are also instances wherein a trader incurs
several losses in a row that prevents him from making any fresh transactions.
Thus, with automated Forex trading system, this problem could be avoided.

* Its ability to greater diversification. With automated trading system now in
place, a trader can trade in various local as well as international markets
within varying time zones. In other words, you can place trade or close deals
with different traders from various markets around the world even at the middle
of the night.

* Its ability to analyze short-term data. This feature is not available in
manual trading system. Thus, traders using automated system have the bigger
advantage since they can predict market trends in less than an hour.

If you will consolidate the features as well as the benefits of automated Forex
trading system, it will give you a solid conclusion: with the Forex market on
automation, you will be able to place more trades on a single day, thus
increasing the average volume trades daily.

To further clarify the conclusion. Let us take the following scenario: If you
are trading using the manual system, you will notice that it takes time before
a trader confirms if he will accept your deal or not. He will look on the
market condition first as well as the exchange rate of the currencies that you
are trading with. Thus, if it takes time before a transaction will be
finalized; there would be fewer trade volumes.

Now, if you are using the automated Forex trading system, the evaluation of
exchange rates and market conditions could be done within a few minutes, since
Forex data are now updated in real time. Probably after less than an hour, you
will be able to take your position whether you will push through the deal or
not. If a Forex transaction per trader is averaging within an hour, a single
trader can place as much as 8 trades within the regular trading hours (if he is
following the day trading schedule) and additional trades beyond the regular
trading hours. There are thousands of traders in just a single market who can
place such average number of trade per day. Combining it with the number of
Forex markets around the world, the figure is just huge enough.

In addition, the technology is changing continuously, thus there is a tendency
that the average number of trades per day will increase, thus a possibility of
increased trade volumes on daily basis. With faster trade execution, that is a
certain possibility.

Be thankful, the Forex market is now at the helm of automation. Transactions
are now faster, and earning money through Forex trading is now easier.

The Realm of Automated Forex Trading System

Just how important is an automated system to the Forex trading system?

Before we answer that question, let us first determine how large Forex trading
market is. From there, we will know the importance of automated systems for the
Forex market.

It is true that the Forex market is the largest market around the world not
just in terms of average daily turnover and average revenue per trader. It is
also the largest market in terms of participants.

You name it, we've got it. Take a look at the following:

BANKS- they are not just for saving money and lending capital to entrepreneurs,
but they are one of the major players in Forex market. Banks cater both to large
quantity of speculative trading and daily commercial turnover. Well-established
banks can trade billions of dollars worth of foreign currencies everyday. Some
of the trades are undertaken on behalf of their clients, but most are through
proprietary desks.

COMMERCIAL COMPANIES- these commercial companies trade small quantities of
foreign currencies compared to larger banks and their trades produce small and
short-term impact on the market rates. However, the trade flows from
transactions made by commercial companies are essential factors with regards to
the long-term direction of the exchange rate of a certain currency.

CENTRAL BANKS- central banks play an important function in the Forex market.
They have the control over the supply of different currency, inflation, and
interest rate. In addition, they have also official target rates for the
currencies that they are handling. They are responsible for stabilizing the
Forex market through the use of foreign exchange reserves. Their intervention
in the market is enough to stabilize a certain currency.

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT FIRMS- these firms commonly manage huge accounts on
behalf of their clients such as endowments and pension funds. They are using
the Forex market to facilitate transactions, specifically in foreign
securities. For example, an investment manager bearing an international equity
portfolio needs to purchase and sell several pairs of foreign currencies to pay
for foreign securities purchases.

RETAIL FX BROKERS- they handle a fraction of the total volume of Forex market.
A single retail Forex broker estimates retail volume of between 25 to 50
billion dollars each day, which is estimated to be at 2% of the total market
volume.

SPECULATORS- these are individuals who purchase and sell foreign currencies and
profit through fluctuations on its price as opposed to popular methods such as
interest and dividends. They perform the important role of transferring the
risk to individuals who do not wish to bear it.

In Forex market alone, there are already six major players partaking on the
$1.8 trillion worth of daily turnover. With a large number of Forex players,
there is really a need in switching from manual to automated Forex trading
system.

Among the aforementioned major Forex players, the automated trading system is
of great advantage to the speculators. Since they focus on the price
fluctuations of various foreign currencies in order to profit, the real time
data analysis will help them determine trades that will give advantage to them.

There are several automated Forex trading systems available in the market.
There are also automated Forex systems that are offered for free or as part of
their trading account acquired from their Forex brokers or agents. Such
complimentary system packages are typically elementary trading system. Thus, if
you are looking for more features, you can avail of it through additional
payments.

There are two types of automated Forex trading system. These are discussed in
the following:

Desktop-based system- all Forex-related data are stored on your desktop's hard
drive. This system is unpopular to Forex traders because all data are
susceptible to computer virus contamination and other security problems. Worse,
when the computer malfunctions, all essential information might be lost and
cannot be retrieved (unless you have some back-up files of your own). However,
it is little expensive compared to the other types of automated trading system.

Web-based system- the security of your Forex account and other data are
provided by your web-based provider. These are hosted on secured servers. It is
also convenient in the sense that there will be no software required and it is
universally compatible with your Internet browser.

You may also try different automated trading system demos first so that you

Automated Forex Trading: Clever yet Effective Technology

Why Forex trading?

This is probably one of the questions that you need a reasonable answer. There
are hundreds of investments out there that you can prefer, but why go trading
foreign currencies instead?

Forex investment is unique in various aspects.

* Its trading volume is relatively huge compared to other market.
* It has extreme liquidity or the capability of either buying or selling the
  currency without causing significant movement in the market price.
* It has the largest number and variety of traders.
* It is one of the markets that have long trading hours (24 hours each day,
  except during weekends.
* Trading locations are almost everywhere, not just in the United States or
  major cities of Europe.
* There are different factors that affect foreign exchange rate.

Another whooping fact that will make you excited to go on Forex trading: it has
an average turnover in traditional foreign exchange market of around $1.88
trillion daily, according to the Triennial Central Bank Survey of the BIS (Bank
for International Settlements). Here are the daily averages of turnover on the
Forex market for the last 17 years:

$500 billion (April 1989)
$750 billion (April 1992)
$1.18 trillion (April 1995)
$1.48 trillion (April 1998)
$1.16 trillion (April 2001)
$1.88 trillion (April 2004)

From the figures alone, you will notice that the average trend of Forex
turnover is increasing. It is estimated to reach as high as 2 to 3 trillion
dollars within the next 8 to 10 years, if the number of traders around the
world will continue to increase. As a matter of fact, everyone have the chance
of getting a substantial slice of the Forex market wealth pie, especially that
the Forex trading marketing is now on its automation process.

The concept of automation becomes the new trend to the foreign exchange trading
market. The Interbank spot Forex market has also considered switching to the
automated method as well.

There are several benefits that a Forex trader can derive from automated Forex
trading. Here are some of such benefits and figure out why Forex trading as
well as other investments (futures and commodities) prefer the automated
process.

Through automated process, transactions can now be done in real time. Although
manual systems have existed for quite some time now, it is difficult to achieve
such benefit that the automated Forex system can offer to its traders. All of
the trades can happen within a few milliseconds and can be a big plus for
automated transactions against the manual system. In fact, there are problems
that are addressed using automated Forex trading especially if the trader is
losing a few times in a row that prevents him from making new trades. Such
problem could be addressed using the automatic trading system.

With automated Forex trading, you will have a greater diversification. It means
that you can trade in various markets in different time zones at a time. You can
execute trades with traders from Singapore or London even it is already 12
midnight in the United States. This benefit allows you a multiple exchange
model option. You can use varying trading models to evaluate short-term data.
This means that you will be able to predict the trend for a shorter period of
time, let us say from fifteen minutes to half an hour.

As previously mentioned, the Forex market is unique because of its extreme
liquidity. This liquidity is increased when the market goes automated.

Risk management problems are solved through automated Forex trading.
International checks, which are commonly used in making purchases on Forex
market, are synchronized through automated technology. Since the transaction in
an automated process is now on real time, there is a slim chance that the
payments will be delayed, reducing the risk of non-payment by either parties.
Although there are problems noted with the use of the automated system, it can
be fixed through consistently-updated technologies.

With automated Forex trading market, the prediction of $2-3 trillion average
daily turnover within the nest 8 to 10 years can be changed within the next 4
to 5 years. Given the quick yet efficient trades on varying time zones,
automated Forex trading will now be among the existing lucrative business
around the world.

ACM: Your Online Forex Trading Solution

If you are actively trading in the New York Stock Exchange, one of the most
active exchanges in the world, you should be very thankful. Its total daily
transactions are averaging approximately at U.S. $50 billion, making it the
largest stock exchange in the United States in terms of dollar volume. There
are many individuals who want to get their feet wet on the ground of this New
York City-based stock exchange.

Yet, you are luckier if you are actively involved in trading foreign
currencies, or commonly known as Forex trading, which is considered to be the
largest market on the world. Its average daily trading turnover is
approximately U.S. $2 trillion, exceeding the combined magnitude of all other
equity markets, including the New York Stock Exchange. Thus, you are luckier
since you have the opportunity of getting more profits out of that $2 trillion
traded everyday.

If you are not yet involved in Forex trading, then you are currently missing
the benefits of trading foreign currencies -- 24 hour trading time,
transactions conducted in real time, extreme liquidity, and others. Thus, you
should decide to get a Forex trading account and start trading right away.

However, just like other types of investment, you must be aware of what kind of
ground you are stepping into. In other words, before getting a live Forex
trading account, you must be properly educated first about the background of
Forex trading. You must learn how you will maximize your earning potentials as
well as decrease the risk that you are into through practicing with free demo
accounts. Moreover, you must have a trading system to follow and the necessary
tools that will help you analyze varying conditions of the Forex market to
position yourself on the profiting aspect of a certain trade.

Once you know what you are getting into, you are now ready to get your live
Forex trading account, web-based trading system and platform, and other tools
that you will need in your Forex trading career. Most neophyte Forex traders
obtain their trading accounts and platforms through a Forex brokerage company
or agents. There are many brokerage firms out there and you need to be
selective, or else you will suffer the adverse consequences.
