(((((((Understanding the Basics of Forex Trading)))))))

With the advent of globalization and communication technology, traders now enjoy the ability to profit across all countries and economies. Regardless if you are a trader sitting in New York or Shanghai, you can grow your portfolio by capitalizing upon the Forex trading of the Japanese Yen or the Indian Rupee.

Subsequently, the foreign currency exchange, also known as Forex trading, has grown to be the largest financial market - with over 3 trillion US dollars traded each day. Most of this Forex market is traded by private investors and traders, who see the ripe opportunities that exist in Forex trading.

The basics of the Forex trading market - The Forex trading market operates 24 hours a day, allowing traders to capitalize upon profit opportunities throughout the world. Whether by telephone or the internet, the Forex trading market is constantly connected, affording currency traders the ability to seize profitable trades, regardless of their local time zones, market hours, or country boundaries.

The foreign currency trading market is commonly referred to as the interbank market. Forex trading involves the buying of one currency and the selling of another. The particular currency combination is referred to as a cross (for example, the Euro/GB Pound, or the US Dollar/Japanese Yen.).

Types of Forex trading strategies - The largest volume of trades occurs in what is called a spot market. It is referred to as the spot market because trades are instantaneously settled, or "on the spot."

Another type of trade using Forex trading strategies involves "forward outbreaks." Although the trade itself is carried out immediately, settlement on the value date involves a small interest rate calculation which is usually insignificant, unless the position is held for a long time. The interest rate differential varies based on the currencies traded. This differential in interest rates between the two countries involved can produce a positive or a negative differential, which is calculated and added to your account.

Increasing your Forex trading power - Because Forex trading is done on margin, the amount of assets controlled is far greater than the funds in an account. As fluctuations in currency exchange rates on any particular day are small, the fact that trading is done on margin allows for profitable Forex trading strategies. None the less, it should be noted that trading on margin can greatly increases your risks. Because of this aspect, any new investor should thoroughly learn Forex trading through Forex courses.

The Benefits of Forex trading - Forex trading offers multiple advantages to other financial investment markets. One of the principal advantages is the fact that trading occurs around the clock, allowing the investor with the appropriate Forex trading strategies to immediately take advantage of opportunities. The Forex market is the most liquid in the world, allowing for price stability and narrow spreads.

Since currency exchange rates are always changing, Forex trading opportunities are continuous, regardless of which direction the currency is moving.

The interbank market is also often traded without commissions, which makes it attractive to an investor who wants to trade frequently. However, for ease of transaction, Forex trading also occurs on futures exchanges.

However, as with all currency trading strategies, there is no reward without some risk. Any investor contemplating foreign currency trading should thoroughly learn Forex trading utilizing studying Forex exchange courses before implementing their Forex trading strategy.

hi rob
multi weeks and day support reach on usd/chf at psychological level

good buying opportunity at around actual level

mind that swiss was overhaeting during time of us QE with capital inflow reaching its paroxism agianst its main trading partners the EU and that why the SNB decided in january to devalue its currency against euro by 20 cents .
right now swiss eco is doing pretty well especally the industrial side ; order book are full.

so keep on going long this usd/chf and mind the differential rate between the us gvt bonds and the snb rate decision.

Can ANYONE comment to the action of the CHF? I keep getting burned going short it (USD, GBP, AUD). It's like the anti-currency - when things appreciate against others, they seem to depreciate against the CHF. I can't figure it out at all.

Thanks,
Rob

Hey Ashraf - is there any way you might share some thoughts on the Vix? I'm long UVXY.
It's a volatile one as you probably know...
Thanks
