Global Forex Trading - 16 "Dynamic" Features Of Global Forex Trading!

Apr 2, 2008
A few private traders/investors and some bigger business houses ventured into global Forex trading at the beginning of the last century, since they could guage the huge potential of the foreign currency market. Not that the business was without its risks, but these people did not lack courage!

Although it captured the attention of the public, many people could not participate, simply because they were not equipped with adequate knowledge or they did not have sufficient funds for trading. The scenario has changed today, and a lot more investors and organizations have become associated with this market.

It has therefore become even more imperative that these traders/investors understand the basic fundamentals of global Forex trading and how the whole thing works.

(1) Each country has its own currency. The values of these currencies keep fluctuating from time to time, mainly because of external factors. People are able to predict the future value of any particular currency. So these forecasts enable them to buy and sell currencies for profits.

(2) This is an international business. Regardless of caste or creed, sex or culture, everyone is welcome into the arena. It is not necessary to have a license for trading, or have plenty of money.

(3) It is purely financial by nature, linked with small or large sums of money. Therefore, it appeals to the larger public.

(4) The business volume of transactions averages $1 trillion per day. Global Forex trading is therefore considered to be the largest trading business in the world.

(5) The business is open for 24 hours in a day. Transactions can be conducted during the daytime, as well as in the nighttime. And since everything works online, either home or office will do!

(6) The leverage is very big, which is an advantage. One cannot gain or lose at the same time.

(7) Global Forex trading has nothing to do with the stock market. Though it can ultimately be a protection against losses, it is still totally independent.

(8) Forex trading includes a tiny "pip" or spread.

(9) An investor/trader cannot just barge into global Forex trading--he/she should be equipped with adequate knowledge about current market trends and skills! These can only be obtained from experts in the business.

(10) There are newsletters giving advice and information regarding currency trading, which are offered by some professional traders. The investor/trader is advised to subscribe to them and enhance his/her knowledge regarding currency trading.

(11) It is a continual learning process, where well-planned strategies and judicious decision-making top the day! If taken lightly, the investor/trader becomes his/her own enemy!

(12) The economical factors should always be kept in mind, such as--international trade, economic standards and interest rates. They are vital to global Forex trading.

(13) The investor/trader should build up his/her ability to analyze currency trading decisions. Technicalities like past and current market trends, price history, support and hindrances, etc., should be learnt too.

(14) Trading can be done in two ways--fundamental or technical. Both are different. The concepts used in both are also different. To avoid grave errors, it would be advisable to adjust the trading technique to just four trading fundamentals.

(15) The more tools the investor or trader has, the more applications he/she has. Greater learning and decision-making is therefore possible. Skills in planning properly strategies can be developed.

(16) Finally, knowing that global Forex trading carries its own risks, the investor/trader should be able to decide how much he is prepared for. There should be an objective attitude towards the outcome, not a defeatist one!
