How Social Trading is Changing the Face of Forex

How Social Trading is Changing the Face of Forex

Trading Articles
It wasn't that long ago that the only way in which you could trade the financial markets and forex in particular, was on a specialized trading floor (also known as the "Pit") with trades yelling their Bids and Offers (know as open outcry). Then came the internet, which turned things completely around, allowing anyone with the capital to invest, access to the world of speculation and financial trading. No longer did a potential trader need to get an exchange license or have big equity to trade the markets. Access to a good broker, an electronic trading platform and equity as low as $100 was enough to get started with trading. No sooner than Internet trading started revolutionizing traditional trading, things are changing yet again, with the advent of social media which brings the p...
Forex Rollovers – Should you be paying attention?

Forex Rollovers – Should you be paying attention?

Trading Articles
For most traders, overnight rollovers are not that high on their priority when it comes to choosing a forex broker. While it is only but obvious that spreads tend to be of utmost concern to the trader, by the time a trader comes around to trading and realizing that they are being charged negative rollover rates, its a bit too late. This article reinforces the fact that traders should pay attention to overnight rollover rates just as much as attention they give towards spreads and other important items on their checklist when choosing a forex broker.

Is it time to invest in Gold?

Is it time to invest in Gold?

Trading Articles
People's fascination and wonder for this 'Yellow Metal' never shows signs of fading irrespective of how high or low Gold is trading in the markets. And this is partly due to the fact that people still consider Gold to be a much better investment than any fancy product our fiat money could build. And as we have seen from the Cyprus banking crisis, even "insured depositors" are at risk should things get any worse. Gold currently is in a downtrend, with prices averaging 1540 (with a further likely drop to 1535/37) for 10 ounces. Refer to the 5 year chart below. It was only two years ago that Gold prices peaked at 1855 (Oct, 2011) while historically, Gold hit rock bottom at 1300 in January, the same year.

Forex lot scaling or position scaling is an advanced concept in position management, often used by experienced traders. Falling under the purview of risk management, there are two kinds of scaling. Scaling In and Scaling Out. In this article, we'll explain what is forex scaling or position scaling, the concepts behind this and also touch upon the risks of this trading style. Forex scaling is nothing to do with a trading analysis, but usually comes after and is to do with 'managing your trade' or 'risk exposure' Scaling In is when a trader adds positions to their trades, or in other words, adds new trades at key price levels. Scaling Out is the opposite, where in a trader takes profits at key price levels. Ideally you can scale out when you have either scaled into your trades or...
