    ECN/STP forex broker

    The foreign exchange market is the decentralized market, where different currencies of different countries are traded. The forex market is increasing at the high pace, because of the less volatility than other type of markets like stock and commodity market. The major players in this market are large commercial banks and it also function as the market makers in the forex market, so it is also known as the interbank market. Small players do not have enough access with the interbank market, so the forex brokers helps them to directly connect with the real market to trade with the best competitive bid/ask rates.


    Thus the forex brokers use two types of models that are ECN (Electronic communication network) and STP (Straight through processing) and are also known as the ECN and STP broker respectively. Both are also known as the non dealing desk, as there is no intervention and the broker can place their client orders without any hindrance.


    The ECN broker uses the electronic system, where the quotes from their clients are directly displayed to the market, where all other traders are also trading with each other. The ECN brokers just matched the quotes from their clients with various liquidity providers who are connected to the network and process it. This gives the client to trade on the real market prices, thus there is no chance of arbitrage. So, the ECN brokers earn profits only from the commission charged to the user of the network. There are some fixed commissions per transaction, so more the trading volume by their client, more commission ECN brokers will get.


    The STP brokers are somewhat similar to the ECN brokers with the very slight differences. On receiving the orders from their clients, the STP brokers will place this orders to the liquid providers. Now here the different STP brokers are connected to the different liquid providers, so getting access to the limited liquid providers. Such brokers earn profits by charging commission and increasing the spread. The brokers increase the pip of the bid/ask quotes given by their liquid provider by few points and place this quotes to the client, and thus the difference between the pip of liquid providers and the broker is brokers profit.


    There are various ECN and STP brokerage companies across the world and each brokerage company has different schemes and programs. There is the quite noticeable difference in the commission rates between different ECN and STP brokers. So select the brokers, where you can get more benefits. The selection of brokers is very tricky, as all STP and ECN brokers are not genuine. Some brokers route their client orders to the artificial market, instead of the real market. So, there is the need of proper research and have to go through the reviews of the company and whether they are using such models before starting with them. You can go with either ECN or STP brokers depending on your requirements, as both are having their own benefits.

    Choosing a Forex Trading Platform

    Nearly twenty years ago, there was only one trading platform: ‘The Phone’. Trading was not difficult. All you had to do was pick up the phone, call your broker and tell him what you would like to trade. Currencies, stocks, bonds and commodities; all the investment type trades were done through this approach. Fast forward two decades, and the scenario is different.


    Brokers are still around, however the platform has changed – now the whole thing is done online through software called ‘trading platforms’. With a large number of brokers and alternatives available, it can be a difficult to find the right one.


    There is a great variety of forex trading platforms and choosing the right one is quite difficult for beginners. However, you have to consider quite a few factors before diving into markets, mostly when you are a beginner. Let’s discuss about the options.


    MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader5


    MetaTrader is an electronic trading platform generally used by online retail foreign exchange traders. Built by MetaQuotes, a Russian company, back in the early 2000’s, the several versions of MetaTrader have made reliable followings among forex traders.


    MetaTrader4 is the most popular trading platform in the industry right now for a couple of reasons. First, MT4 is powerful but comparatively easy to use, and there are thousands of YouTube videos presenting how to make use of it. Next, MT4 permits you to employ custom trading indicators and program to trade automatically, making it very popular among active traders and those looking for auto-trading signals.


    As MetaTrader4 is surely a good platform to trade on and has an extremely large number of users, it is not without its problems. Basically, the infrastructure of MT4 platform itself is getting older – although MetaQuotes often updates the software, it is considering a decade old and the latest MetaTrader5 has yet to see extensive adoption among brokers.


    MetaTrader is not supposed to be your best option if you never think of using automated trading. However, if you want a simple, flexible, handy trading platform with lots of useful indicators and trading tools accessible for free, MT4 is a better way to go.


    C Trader


    A latest competitor to the world of forex trading platforms is cTrader, another broker agnostic platform. Although not almost as extensive as the MetaTrader platforms, cTrader is popular among more trendy traders mostly because it possesses faster execution times than MT4, has a professional and apparent interface, and because it shows what’s called ‘liquidity in second tier’.


    In the MT4 platform only one price for a particular currency pair is displayed. That price is the best offered price for a selected pair. With second tier liquidity you can get not only the best offered price, but also the second and third available price. This ensures more simplicity into the marketplace and is effective when opening large orders.


    C Trader is gaining steam in the forex industry and is certainly a solid platform, but it is only been accepted by a small number of brokers. If you are in search of a platform that provides a good selection of useful trading tools, multi-tiered liquidity, and fast execution, cTrader should obviously be a best choice for your forex trading platforms. If you are more concerned in automated trading, or if you don’t do technical analysis effectively while trading, cTrader is perhaps going to be overkill.


    Now What?


    So now you have it – a swift rundown of just a couple of the dozens of forex trading platforms out there. Now, whether you are a novice trader or an old professional, industry standard platforms like MT4 are always an excellent platform to trade. If you want more powerful and more sophisticated pricing, you may want to consider something like C Trader.

    Forex Trading Education: Things you should know

    How difficult is it to generate profits while trading the Forex market? How many days does it take to really be able to make earnings trading the Forex market? In this article we will try to shed light on some of the most important aspects of Forex trading.


    Trading the Forex market has many advantages over other financial markets, among the most significant are: 24hrs market, high liquidity, better execution, and others. Investors and traders find the Forex market as a new diversifying opportunity because of these advantages. Does this signify that it is easy to earn money trading the Forex Market? The answer is not at all.


    Forex brokers have the same opinion that 90% of traders end up losing capital, 5% of traders end up at break even and only 5% of them get consistent profitable results. With this information given, I do not think trading to be a simple task. However, is it difficult to master any other endeavor? I do not think so, suppose writers, musicians, or even other industries, the success rates are about the same.


    So, now that we know it is difficult to gain consistent profitable results, a must question would be, Why is it that some traders are successful while others fail to trade profitably in the Forex market? There is no complicated answer to this question, or a guideline to follow to achieve regular profitable results.


    What we all do know is that successful traders think in a different manner. That is right; they do not go after the crowd, although they are an independent part of the crowd.


    A few things that divide the Successful traders from the rest are:


    Education: They are splendidly educated in the matter; they have preferred to learn every single and significant aspect of forex trading. The successful traders know that each and every trade is a learning experience.


    Forex trading system: Successful traders have an effective forex trading system. They have the patience to follow it accurately, because they know that only the trades that are followed by a good system have a better rate of success.


    Price actions trading: They have included price actions into their trading strategy. They know price action has the power.


    Money management: Everyone knows that money management in forex trading is a significant aspect of success. After all, you cannot be successful without funds in your trading account.


    Trading psychology: Successful traders are aware of every psychological matter that affects the decisions while trading in the market. They have accepted the reality that every single trade has two possible results, not just the winning side.


    These are the most significant aspects that influence the success rate of Forex traders.


    We realize now that it is quite difficult to gain profits trading the Forex market, but it is not impossible. We also talked about the most significant factors that influence the rate of success of Forex traders. However, how much time does it take to get consistent profitable results? It fluctuates from trader to trader. For some, it may perhaps take a life time, and they still won’t get the desired results, for some others, one or two years are enough to obtain consistent profitable results. The answer to this question may vary, but what I would like to make clear here is that trading profitably is a development, it is not something you can do in a short period of time.


    Trading effectively is no easy task; it is a development and could take years to get the desired results. There are a few things; however, every trader should take in consideration that could accelerate the process: having an effective trading system, education, using money management properly, being conscious of psychological matters and discipline to follow your trading strategies and your trading plan, among others.

    STP broker forex – Straight Through Processing

    The forex market being the largest market in the world, the investment in the currency trading is continuously increasing. As there is always risk associated with the trading, well versed knowledge regarding going trends in the forex market is very essential. There are many other factors that need to be regarded while trading. Thus to avoid the risk due to the unawareness to the trading system, trading through the broker will bring many benefits to the trader.


    The broker using the model name STP (straight through processing) is known as the STP broker. The STP brokers act as the mediator between their client and their connected liquid providers which can be bank, another broker or any investor, etc. This is the electronic process, where the client places their order to the broker and in turn brokers will directly place their client’s quotes to the liquid providers. The broker will then find their appropriate liquid provider and ask the liquid provider to execute the deal. The brokers earn profits through the fixed commission charged by them for the single trading. Thus the more trading volume carried out by the client, the more commission will be earned by the client. The commission charges vary as per the different STP brokers.


    Sometime, the STP brokers also acts as the market maker in which they try to manipulate the ask/bid rate obtained from their liquid providers to gain some profits. They will find the liquid provider with the appropriate bid/ask rates and change the pip value of the given quotes by few units say 0.3 to 0.5, before presenting that quote to their clients. The difference in the increase of the spread will be the profit for the STP brokers. Thus adding the mark up to the received quotes, there is the scope of getting the varying spread every time.


    As the STP brokers can process the clients order without any intermediation, they are considered as the non dealing desk brokers. So there will be no delay in the processing of the clients orders and will provide the transparent trading system, where the clients are assured that their orders are routed to the real market, instead of artificial market. Also due to the less processing time, there is also the less risk of settlement. This is the main reasons behind the selection of the STP brokers by the clients. Also through the STP brokers, the clients can get the chance to trade on the competitive bid/ ask rates, due to the presence of wide range of the liquid providers who can also provide client more liquidity.


    Thus there are many benefits of trading through the STP broker. Certain brokers also provide other services like everyday market trends, guide to trade, etc. But along with the benefits, it is also need to take care that the STP broker, you are selecting is the true STP broker. Because there are many brokers available in the market, which does not transfer the clients order to the true market. Thus the selection of STP broker should be done very carefully.

    The Future of the Forex Industry after the Swiss Franc’s Cap Sudden Drop

    In the financial sector, having a fluctuating currency which is not only predictable but also unstable is one of the greatest aims. When there is a sudden drop in the value of a currency, a number of negative effects on the market follow.


    This is exactly what happened on January 15, 2015 when the Swiss National Bank (SNB), removed the cap that had been placed on the franc against the euro. But what are the consequences of this action? What is the future of the forex industry? Let’s discover the answers to these questions in this article:


    One of the industries that will be hit the hardest by this move is the Swiss export industry. The exporters have suddenly found themselves in an undesirable position as their products command less competitive rates in the overseas markets compared to what they commanded before the cap dropping. This has led to the drastic decrease in the price of shares and hence resulting in losses by the stockholders.
    This move has also laid fertile ground for the central bank’s opponents who are most likely going to oppose any such drastic moves in the future. This has already been experienced in the past when in December of last year, a referendum was held in order to convert a majority of the bank’s foreign exchange into gold which is more stable. Even though the initiative failed, the latest move by the bank has given the opponents enough power for any future campaigns.
    The SNB’s monetary policy will have a ripple effect on major financial institutions in other countries. It will make markets quite skeptical on whether such policies in other institutions will stand the test of time. It would therefore discourage investors from pumping their money into the forex industry. With reduced investor confidence, less money will flow into the forex industry thus decelerating growth in the sector and effectively slowing down economic growth in other sectors as well.
    Another prominent predictable effect of this move is the fall of the Swiss stock market. Most investors were shocked and caught off guard by this action and have continued to sell their equities and shield themselves by running from the franc itself or gold. Even those who are still holding onto their equities are mostly doing so in anticipation of the stabilization measures they expect from the SNB as well as the European Central Bank to undertake.
    This move may also work against the strides made so far in the recovery of the global economy from the 2008-09 recession. According to the International Monetary Fund, this action may result in the Eurozone and Japan being held in a world of slow growth and low inflation for prolonged periods of time.
    This would be a blow to the health of the global economy whose growth is still too brittle, too low and too lopsided to withstand such situations. So, the forex industry needs to pay a lot of attention in making itself successful.

    Going Short or Long –Strategies for Successful Trading Decision

    The Forex market is fast becoming a focal point for millions of new entrants due to its unique and extremely beneficial qualities. We are seeing a wave of people that have learnt how to make clever investment choices in order to benefit from the market. However, going long and going short are two strategies in Forex that may take slightly longer to grasp, but once a thorough understanding has been reached you will be able to make clear and crucial decisions in order to be profitable. Below we will examine the two main strategies mentioned in detail in order to clarify.


    Going Short


    This trading strategy is when we sell the base currency in order to buy it at a later stage when the price begins to drop, thus gaining return from the transaction. For example, if the current GBP/USD is 1.5345 meaning we pay 1.5345 Dollars for one Pound Sterling, and we have $1000 dollars, we would sell the Dollars in order to purchase the Pound Sterling. This is carried out when one anticipates the cost will once again drop in a short period of time. Once the price drops for example GBP/USD drops to 1.5350, this implies that more Dollars can be purchased with the same amount of Pounds that we obtained in the beginning. In other words one can keep the additional Dollars as profit, which he simply earned by considering the dollar as the base currency.


    Risk in Short Position


    As with all financial markets, forex has the same amount of risk involved. One can expect the risk of prices going in the exact opposite direction than originally expected, causing you a loss instead of profits. For example, if the GBP/USD gets to 1.5340, one would not even get the same amount of Dollars that he sold initially. This strategy is only profitable if prices drop.


    Going Long


    In the Forex Market, going long refers to buying of currencies with the intent of reselling them at a later stage once the price increases. Should one notice an increasing trend of a currency for a long period of time, then buying would be the correct option and keeping the trade open until we see the price reach its maximum point before reversing. For example, GBP/USD is showing an increasing trend for the past few hours or days and the current price is 1.5400 and it is increasing in price, then you can sell the Dollars to purchase the Pounds and wait for the prices to get to the desired level. You could sell when the price gets to 1.5500 and that yields you more Dollars than your initial investment.


    Risk in Long Position


    There is the risk of the price declining once you have purchased the currency. In this situation, your loss would equal the difference in the price at the point which you bought the currency and the price at which you are selling it. Regardless of which position you open or the investment in Forex market, all you have to know is the market trend and the economic conditions of the base currency.

    Bankers or Thieves?

    The financial sector, especially the banking subsector; has a lot of players involved. However, not all these ply their trade in the honest manner they should. This leaves many people wondering if they are actually bankers or thieves in disguise.


    This article seeks to address this question by focusing on a number of illegal activities that have been done in the past and are still being perpetuated by some banks, albeit under the table. These include:


    Charging Negative Interest Rates


    Normally, depositors usually expect the money that they deposit in banks to gain interest over the period of time that it is kept there. However, this is not the case when some banks decide to do just the opposite: they charge for depositing money with them.
    This has been done in the backdrop of economic instability such as the current situation in Switzerland, where the Swiss National Bank is charging a -0.25% interest on large depositors. This and similar moves by such institutions discourage investors, as it passes the burden of poor economic policies by the regulators on the bank clientele.


    Trading Toxic Debts


    This is another activity done by banks that very much disadvantages investors and reduces their confidence in the institutions. It has been likened to corporate gambling.
    The practice involves loaning out money to people or companies that have little chance of paying back the debt at all or with interest. This may lead to an economic crisis and massive financial loss.


    Creating Fake Investment Sectors


    This is a practice that is against international security laws and involves inducing investors to make sale or purchase decisions based on fictitious information, thus leading to the investors losing their money or stock.


    False Financial Reports


    Often, financial institutions have been found to produce and present fake financial reports that are either aimed at hiding some illegal activities that go on in them, or to portray themselves as being in a better financial position than they actually are.


    Money Laundering


    Moving money from the underground to the mainstream economy as well as tax evasion maneuvering acts are sometimes executed with the help of banks which pass the money through their chains. This works against the mainstream economy as the appropriate tax money is not injected into the economy. It also serves as a means of funding criminal activities.


    A case study is how it has just been alleged that HSBC was involved in a tax evasion scheme that saw its CEO shelter millions of pounds in a Swiss Bank account.


    Running Away From Taxes


    The banks themselves have sometimes been involved in illegal activities aimed at shielding them from taxes. One such example is the BMP scandal which exposed massive irregularities in the sector.


    Ponzi Schemes


    The Ponzi scheme involves banks paying dividends to older investors using the capital that has been invested by newer investors instead of the profits that they have rightfully earned.
    One of the well-known example of such activity was the massive Ponzi scheme at Goldman Sachs investment bank, where the conglomerate was ordered to pay up to $10 million as claim to all the investors who had fallen victim to the fraud.

    Forex Vs Spread Betting

    Trading in shares on the stock market is one of the most important activities in the global economic sector today. This is due to the fact that it not only enables companies to raise capital, but also gives the traders an opportunity to get a piece of the profits gained by the companies whose shares they invest in.


    For traders, there are two directions they can choose to go when investing in shares: Traditional forex trading or spread betting. These methods have a number of similarities and differences that may act as a guide to the trader depending on their needs. In the next paragraphs, we discuss some of these aspects with an aim of comparing and contrasting the two.


    Definitions


    The logical point to start at would be to define each method since by definition, they are quite different. Forex trading involves buying and selling of the shares of the companies listed on a given forex market.


    Spread betting on the other hand refers to speculative betting on such shares by placing a bet whose outcome depends on whether the future price of the shares increase or decrease.


    Leveraged trading


    Given that spread bets are leveraged products, it makes it possible for a trader to gain exposure to large share values by investing with only a fraction of that value. For instance, to spread bet on Vodafone shares, a trader needs to invest about 5% of the stock value for that number of shares only.


    In forex trading, the trader has to invest the exact amount of money that is needed to purchase a certain number of shares. In this context, it requires more capital than its counterpart.


    Commissions charged


    Forex trading of shares usually attracts commission which is a percentage of the total stock value traded; it is charged by the stock brokers.


    Spread betting however does not attract any commission charges whatsoever. The trader gets to earn the whole amount of cash of the stock they invested in.


    Capital Gains Tax and Stamp Duty Charges


    For spread betting, the trader is neither required to pay any stamp duty charges nor any tax on the capital gains.


    Forex trading does not attract stamp duty but the trader is charged a capital gains tax. However, losses are considered as tax reductions.


    Expiry


    Spread bets do have expiry bets that are fixed to specific timelines. After these dates are reached, the investment is no longer active.


    Forex trading do not have any expiry dates (except binaries, options and forwards), thus enabling traders to hold onto and gain from the shares for decades.


    Physical Ownership


    Stock traders gain physical ownership of the company thus the ability to attend AGMs and hence participate in the formulation of company policies. The more shares one holds, the more influence they have.


    Spread betters do not have such privileges since it is simply speculative.


    Profit Gains


    For stock traders, one can only gain profit when the value of their shares appreciate. They suffer a corresponding loss when the price falls.


    Spread betters have the ability of going both long and short- and can therefore bet and gain from either a fall or a rise in share value.

    Ease of movement- Most people on average, deal with more than one financial institution. However, moving from one land based financial institutions offer a great challenge due to the physical barriers and the time constraints.
    Virtual financial institutions eliminate this since with them, one can move from one institution to another with ease by just the click of a mouse to open new tabs. This enables one to be engaged in several financial dealings simultaneously without any constraints.


    Fast service- If you are familiar with most land-based financial institutions then you are aware that more often than not there will be a queue that you have to join when seeking services. This is completely eliminated in virtual financial institutions, where you will get the transaction you want done completed in the blink of an eye without waiting for long, which saves you time.
    Availability and mobility- This is one front on which the virtual financial institutions are very advantageous. Unlike land based institutions which have set times at which they close, the virtual ones operate 24/7, 365 days a year on any device with internet connection.
    Disadvantages of Virtual Finance


    Notwithstanding the above pros, virtual finance also has some cons associated with it. These include:
    Security- This is the biggest concern to most people. This is because their virtual accounts may suffer phishing, malware and hacker attacks thus leading to losses.
    Personal relationship- With physical finance institutions such as banks, one has an opportunity to create a personal relationship that may last for many years with it. This is not the case with the virtual institutions as their dealings are purely transactional.
    Transaction issues- Some transactions and problems are better addressed on a face to face basis. Virtual finance does not offer clients this as all transactions are based on the web.

    The Gold Bubble Price and the Swiss Franc

    Gold is one of the most popular commodity assets, as well as being the highest valued precious metal. The gold bubble, which refers to the high market activity it attracts, is a millennia old due to this popularity. The Swiss Franc on the other hand is one of the eight basic currencies that are widely used in the global forex market.


    With this in mind, it is quite obvious that the value or price of one will without an iota of doubt have an effect on the other in one way or another, directly or indirectly. This article focuses on how this has been the case in recent times and how this has in turn had effects on the global forex market and economy.


    The Beginnings of the Swiss Franc Value and the Gold Bubble Price
    The forex market is subject to several market forces that are mostly beyond the control of financial institutions such as the Swiss National Bank (SNB).To compound matters, the bank recently enacted unsound policies that resulted in the ballooning of Switzerland’s balance sheet from 100 to 500 billion in just over five years so as to hold the Franc down against other major currencies. This value represented about 2/3 of the countries’ GDP.


    This situation was especially dangerous for Switzerland who over the years has been a poster child of good economic policies, with the franc having been on a constant appreciation against other currencies. This, combined with its largely export-driven economy made it one of the most dangerous economic situations ever experienced by any country since the Great Depression.


    Compensatory Measures Taken
    In the wake of this looming disaster that may have seen the collapse of the Franc, the Swiss people went on a referendum in an effort to tap into the gold bubble as an alternative to the paper currency. The November 2014 vote had a 3-point agenda on which the Swiss had to vote on:


    Returning the Swiss National gold held offshore back to the country
    Compelling the SNB to hold at least 20% of the their assets in nothing other than solid gold
    To prevent any further sale of gold.
    With stiff opposition from both the Swiss government and the SNB, the Swiss people returned a ‘No’ vote thus maintaining the status quo at that time.


    The Aftermath
    Following the referendum results which prevented the widespread use of gold reserves, the SNB got a chance of taking other recovery measures to make the Franc more stable. The action it took was to remove the 1.20 EURCHF cap that had been set in late 2011- a time when the gold bubble had hit an all -time high. This made the franc fall below 1.0.


    The move did not come without consequences. The value of gold once again soared as stock traders escaped the hit to hedge themselves against the losses resulting from the currency’s devaluation. Also, greatly affected were the Swiss manufacturing industries which experienced massive losses on their exports.

    Tips on How to Develop a Profitable Forex Trading Mindset

    Trading in the Forex market largely depends on your mindset. Your success or failure in the trade highly depends on your mindset. This means that if you do not have the right mindset, you will not be successful in making profits no matter how good your strategies are. The truth is that most traders often ignore this fact, or are simply unaware of how important it is for them to succeed in the Forex market. If you are not sure how to go about it, here are few tips that might help you develop a profitable Forex trading mindset.


    Have Realistic Expectations
    We all know the risks involved in Forex Trading. Sometimes, the business is so good that you might end up thinking that things are always the same. That’s the biggest mistake that a trader can make. Setting high expectations when you are just starting out will only discourage you especially after incurring severe losses. You need to accept that you might lose the money in your trading account and thus, you have to be prepared for it.


    Be Organized and Have a Clear Plan
    Successful traders always have a plan. With a trading plan, you can plan out the things you intend to do and what you should be looking out in the next trade. You also need to have a trade journal where you can record all your trades and use them to see your progress. The journals should also contain your long-term and short-term goals and how you plan to achieve them.


    Be Patient
    Most people get into Forex Trading with the aim of making quick cash. What they fail to realize is that quick money comes and go easily. It’s better to start doing your trade in the small daily charts instead of investing huge sums expecting to grow rich in one transaction. It’s better to wait for some time to place an order only when the price set ups are worth taking the risk. Also, remember that with trading, it’s all about winning or losing. You have to be prepared for anything.


    Be Accurate in your Selection
    Your experience in trading helps you discover what’s effective in making profits and staying away from what does not work. You need to be extremely choosy during your selection. Select only those strategies that are beneficial and valuable for your trading.


    Always Be Prepared to Learn New Things
    The best way to get a better understanding of the trade is by training yourself on a regular basis. Learn about the basic rules that are most effective in trading. Look for a “trade mentor” to help you get a clear understanding of the trade as well as motivating and rectifying you when mistakes are made. With that, you will be able to make wiser decisions while trading.


    Familiarize Yourself With the Market Trends
    In Forex Trading, the markets change every now and then. Most beginners find it hard to cope with the trend but the big secret is to know when to trade. First, you must learn the market properly and know how it works before venturing into the actual trading. You must learn and practice how to trade, how to place your orders and what to do when losses are incurred. This way, you will be able to develop a successful Forex trading mindset.

    Ways to Emotional Stability for Forex Traders

    Forex Trading can cause severe emotional instability problems especially when a trader loses his money. The first reaction when losses are incurred is anger and frustration which can, sometimes, make the trader become aggressive and violent. A Forex Trader must learn how to handle his emotions during such occasions in order to be successful in his ventures. The only way he can do this is to use his emotions in a positive way and as a source of inspiration to make crucial improvements. Below is a list of some of the most effective ways to maintain discipline in trading.ExerciseApart from helping you keep fit and healthy, exercise plays a crucial role in relaxing your body and mind, relieving stress as well as keeping your brain healthy. Exercise helps clear the mind and increases your ability to perform well even under intense pressure. It also helps in keeping your emotions stable at all times.Always Be HappySpending a whole day frowning because you lost in your trades will only reduce your chances of winning in the next trade. This is because frowning will destabilize your mind in such a way that it will be much harder for you to make wise decisions while trading. You always need to smile and laugh because you will not only set a positive mindset but at the same time, you will be able to make successful trades.MeditationThere are a million reasons why you should start meditating. Meditation has, over the years, proven its ability to improve a person’s overall well-being. One of the main reasons is that it helps reduce stress and anxiety attacks. This is especially common with Forextraders who spend their days waiting for the unexpected to happen during trading. Meditation is also known to increase serotonin production which is a hormone that improves mood and behavior. It also heals the body and mind, makes you become more focused, increases wisdom and gives you perspective and finally, it helps you beat the blues.Set Your Goals RightNothing gives you more satisfaction than having clear set plans for the future. It gives you joy to know that, at the end, you will still achieve something, no matter how hard things become.Take Care of Your BodyAs a trader, you are always too busy to even take good care of your body. A healthy body and mind is more likely to have a positive mindset than an unhealthy one. Always take a balanced diet to provide your body with proper nutrients, exercise regularly to relax the body and mind and also, get quality sleep each day. Sleep helps the body relax and provides a great relief. It also helps stabilize our hormones which are the main causes of emotional instability.Take Deep BreathesTaking deep breathes offers some amazing benefits to the body. As a trader, sometimes, it’s hard to come to terms with huge losses. The next time you feel angry, resentful or anxious due to your loss, pay special attention to your breathing. The fact is, when negative emotions run high, your breaths become shorter and shallow. Take a couple of deep breaths everyday so as to stabilize your emotions.Find Solace in MusicThe right kind of music can help relax your mind and body, reduce chronic stress, and affect your emotions in a positive way.Offer a Helping Hand to OthersHelping others brings back so much more in return. It makes you feel happy and less stressed knowing that you changed someone’s life in one way or the other.Celebrate Your AchievementsAs a trader, it’s easy to get carried away by emotions after earning huge profits from your trades. Most people crave for more and end up even stocking more money into their trading accounts in attempt to earn more. It’s always good to sit back and relax while enjoying the fruits of your labor.Ways to Emotional Stability for Forex Traders - Commex FX

    Benefits of Forex trading



    Forex is an acronym for Foreign Exchange Markets. Forex is further denoted by the symbol FX a well known term among investors, bankers and stock brokers across the world. The Foreign Exchange Market or currency market is a global, decentralized market for trading of currencies. Major international banks are the core participants in the FX market.


    Financial centers around the world provide a convenient platform for trading in currencies among multiple buyers and sellers round the clock with the exception of weekends. And the FX market operates on several levels.


    Let us briefly look at some unique advantages of FX trading.


    24 hour market
    As already mentioned in the introductory paragraph the FX trading operates on a 247 basis with the exception of weekends. Trading across the world starts when the markets open in Australia on Sunday evening and closes when markets end at New York Stock Exchange on Friday evening.


    High Liquidity
    Liquidity is when you can easily convert an asset into cash with minimum price fluctuations. In FX market one can easily effect transactions by moving huge lots of foreign currencies in and out of the market with least price fluctuations.


    Low transaction cost
    As per FX terminology the cost for a transaction is added with the price i.e. Buying price of the currency itself. This in other words is called a spread. Spread is the difference between the buying price and the selling price.


    Leverage
    The leveraging factor is nothing but the ability to trade more money in the market than what is actually available on the traders’ account. Forex brokers allow traders to make profits on the leveraging factor. If you are allowed to trade on a leverage factor of 50:1 ratio it means you can trade for $50 with $1 capital available on your account. You can control a trade volume of $50,000 with just $1000 worth of capital.


    You need to open a Forex trading account online to be able to buy and sell foreign currencies. For every FX currency you buy, your account will be credited with the aforesaid amount. For every FX transaction you effect in terms of selling the corresponding currency will be debited from your online Forex Account. The profits you incur of the same will be wired directly into your account through Paypal.


    Profit potential from rising and falling markets
    You can trade freely in the market as far as your potential goes. If you feel a currency price will go up, you can buy it, in other words, go long. Increased currency price indicates you can sell it at the much increased price. You can compensate for huge profits by trading on volumes. On the other hand, if you feel the currency value is going to drop, you can sell it or go short.


    Seasoned stock traders can make huge amount of profits and even become overnight millionaires. On the other hand, if you crave for huge amount of profits and start trading without following the tricks of the trade you can also end up losing a lot of money. Thus, you should exercise caution while you are operating in the Forex market or stock market.
