Bitcoin has emerged as one of the hottest investments around. Now, as Bitcoin trading continues to evolve, it is also being linked up with another hot investment market, Forex, which involves the trading of currencies. While Bitcoin itself aims to be a currency, there are some important differences between Bitcoin trading and traditional Forex trading.

Forex trading refers to the trading of currencies. In a globalized world, companies and organizations must be able to quickly exchange currencies in order to facilitate global operations and purchases. A large company like General Electric can have operations in literally dozens of countries. This means that General Electric must be able to quickly access various currencies in order to pay local staff and make purchases, among other things.

The Forex market is the largest and most liquid investment market in the world. Most of the traders are large institutions, corporations, and governments who conduct trading to facilitate their various operations. Some investors, however, also trade in Forex with the goal of making money off of fluctuating exchange rates.

Currencies are traded in pairs. This means that one currency is exchanged for another. So USD/Euro and Euro/USD refers to two separate trading pairs. The first currency refers to the “base currency”, which means that USD is the currency being bought, and Euro is the currency being sold. In the USD/Euro pair, you are using Euros to purchase dollars. If you use Euros to purchase dollars, you are essentially betting that the dollar with rise in relation to the Euro, and the Euro will likewise fall.

Forex is considered to be a more stable market to invest in. Currency exchange rates generally move very slowly and only change at moderate paces over time. While traumatic world events, such as the collapse of a national economy, or a major financial crisis, can cause exchange rates to rapidly move up and down, most of the time currencies remain quite stable in comparison to other investment vehicles such as stocks.

Investors, however, make money off of fluctuations in markets. Generally, the more volatile prices for an investment are, the more opportunities there are to make and lose money. This is why Bitcoin Forex trading is becoming more and more popular. At the moment, the amount of speculation and number of concerns (i. e. security, government intervention) surrounding the currency mean that Bitcoin prices are highly volatile. This makes Bitcoin an investment vehicle more similar to stocks, commodities, and other highly speculative investments giving it the ability to gain larger profit (and loss).

Most Forex trading is conducted through dedicated Bitcoin exchanges, such as MtGox. which allow you to “buy” Bitcoins. Forex trading differs from a traditional Bitcoin exchange in that it is non-executable and you buy Bitcoins in pairs. This means that you cant simply withdraw your Bitcoins and use them to make purchases. Instead, you invest in a dedicated financial instrument, in this case a currency pair.

Lately, Forex brokers are beginning to get involved in Bitcoin and are setting up Bitcoin trading pairs similar to those found on traditional Forex platforms. Like other trading pairs, a Forex pair will allow you to buy and sell Bitcoins in relation to other currencies. This means that you could potentially profit off of the rise in the value of Bitcoin and the drop in the value of the US dollar, or vice versa.

Popular Bitcoin/Forex trading companies that supply CFD services include Plus500 and Avatrade. Oanda, one of the worlds largest Forex brokers, has added Bitcoin to its conversion tool but has so far declined to make Bitcoin a tradable currency. Still, the mere fact that Oanda is engaging with Bitcoin is good news and adds credibility to the currency. When trading CFDs your capital may be at risk. This method of trading is suitable for experienced traders.

Even though only a handful of companies allow Bitcoin in their Forex trading, you can still engage in Forex trading and currency pairs through the Forex brokers listed above. By trading Bitcoin through Forex brokers and through currency pairs, you should be able to maximize your earnings if your market analysis is right.

Forex knights by hector deville reviewed and discussed

Forex knights by hector deville reviewed and discussedForex Knights By Hector Deville Reviewed And Discussed

Forex Knights is a forex mentoring service by Hector Deville that can be subscribed to at the rock bottom price of just $1,997.00, one time payment. Im not sure if Safecart is the payment processor or just the shopping cart he uses but regardless, he claims to offer a 30 day money back guarantee. For $2000+ he better have you well on your way to profiting in forex trading within those 30 days. Who in there right mind would stay for that price if they didnt see a drastic return.

Trend collapsing seems to be the go to strategy here, which isnt as easy as theyre making it out to be. They have it labeled out in a simple 4 step process:

Step 1: Spot the trend

Step 2: Spot the beginning of the end for that trend (not as easy as you may think)

Step 3: Wait for the breakout

Step 4: Profit from the collapse

Easy enough right? Well go back and check some chart history and see how often this really happens and if its as obvious as displayed in the pic above.

What results? Why would they need results for a $2000 mentoring service? (sarcasm off)

Complaints

Just a heads up, I have seen a few reports of people finding it extremely difficult to cancel their subscription with this product. So I assume Hector also offers a monthly payment instead of the full $2000. Becareful with this one guys!

Remember if you are going to try Forex Knights that you fully understand how the system works before running it live. I always recommend to use your refund period to test it thoroughly for at least a month. If your results are above satisfaction, then and only then should you consider taking steps to trade it live with your hard earned money. Just because a website says their system will make $xx, xxx a month doesnt mean its going to. So if you are not satisfied, do not hesitate to request your money back.

A trading quiz on price action trading part2

A trading quiz on price action trading part2A Trading Quiz on Price Action Trading Part 2

Last week we posted a trading quiz on price action trading which went over 3 charts on 3 separate instruments. I did not show the prices, nor the time frames of the charts, so you had to rely upon your pure price action trading skills to read the charts.

The task was to analyze each chart and determine if you would either a) trade with trend, b) trade counter-trend, or c) no trade at all.

You were also asked as to why youd trade each chart the way you did, at what levels, and what you saw in the charts from a price action perspective .

We got a lot of really good answers, and I offered a $50 discount off any course to the winner (i. e. the person I thought offered the best overall answer closest to mine).

Before I get into the winner, Im going to share with you how I traded each chart (or didnt), what I was reading in the price action . and why I traded the way I did.

Lets jump into the charts. First Ill post below the charts I shared last week. Then Ill show you the actual instrument, time frame, along with how I traded each chart.

Price Action Chart #1

Price Action Chart #2

Price Action Chart #3

Details Around Each Chart

All the charts you saw above were the 1hr charts. In order, they were the:

1) German Dax 30

2) French CAC 40

3) Japanese Nikkei 225

The blue line was my typical 20 EMA which I often use as dynamic support and resistance. Lets show each chart individually as to how I traded it and what I was reading in the price action .

Chart #1: German Dax 30 (No Trade)

In the chart above, we have the large breakout candle and long upside wick at the first blue arrow in the top right of the chart. I was looking for a counter-trend pullback . but wanted the price action to drift correctively up towards the wick highs. However, this never happened as it just remained inside the middle of the candle and lower edge of the wick (hence in the middle of a range).

Selling near 9650 was a potential option, especially with 3 wicks near there before the sell-off, however, if the heaviest sellers were up at the top of the wick, id have to put my stop above there, and thus would have had a poor risk:reward ratio since the natural downside target would have been 9578.

Including the spread, the most R I could have gotten out of the trade (if 9578 was going to hold) would have been

1.4R, which is not what I like to see when trading counter-trend.

Ideally I can get 3-4+R per counter-trend trade. otherwise its not worth it due to the lower probability nature of CT trades.

Hence, I let the counter-trend short go.

Regarding the with trend trade option . the best trade idea would have been to buy at 9578 assuming it would hold. I actually did not buy this, mostly because I was already in trades on the other two charts and this one seemed the least favorable to me.

To be frank, I probably would have gotten stopped out if I did. Why?

Because I would have placed my entry near the 9578 level with no more than a 20 point stop. The reason for my stop placement in role reversal setups off a level. is if the level is truly going to hold, then you should not need a large stop above/below it.

Depending upon the volatility and price action around the level will determine how big my stop is. 20 points should have been more than enough. Regardless, had I traded this, I would have been stopped out easily.

As you can see, the pullback became quite impulsive heading into the level, and went 1 full bear bar past it, sub 9550. Had I traded this, I would have lost 1R.

You will notice a red line near the top left of the chart. This was a 2nd entry option to trade with the trend. but I missed that one as well. I like to mark certain places on a chart where I could have added a position, or taken a trade.

The reason for this is, when you review your trades at the end of the week. looking at these patterns will eventually go into your trading database in your brain.

By seeing these charts with potential trade ideas, the next time a similar setup comes up, you increase the chance youll a) recognize the trade opportunity, and b) pull the trigger.

Chart #2: CAC 40 (Buy off Support on Corrective Pullback)

In this chart above, youll notice at points 1 and 2 the price action reacted really cleanly off the round number and 4400 level. Notice on the pullback after point 2, we see strong buying interest emerge from the bottom of the consolidation just below 4400.

This leads to a strong breakout up to A, and then a very corrective pullback. If you contrast this to the Dax chart above, minus the 1 large bar bar in the corrective pullback from A to B, the bars heading into the 4400 level were not getting bigger, but smaller.

This usually means the selling pressure is being absorbed by the buyers . If the sellers are increasing in strength, the candles should be the same size, or getting larger. But instead they werent, signaling the order flow was still with the bull side as they were likely buying a few points above the level.

When I see corrective pullbacks like this heading into a key level. Im going to buy that in favor of the trend with a stop below the key level.

Including the spread, my entry was 4405 and targeting 4495 . which I had mentioned in prior commentaries. I chose 4495 as I wanted to be a few points below the big figure at 4500. With a 15 point stop and 80 point target . total profit was +5.3R in 5hrs .

Chart #3: Nikkei 225 (Counter-Trend Sell)

In this chart above, I felt this was the most prime for a good counter trend trade. Why?

Looking at the chart above, notice the triple rejection off 15804 with the blue arrows A-C. What interested me in trading this one counter-trend, was two key points;

1) The impulsive selling after the rejection at 15804 at B, and

To be honest, the best setup was at c, placing an entry to sell at this level . This offered the higher risk to reward setup, especially if the impulsive selling from B was sellers truly taking control.

I missed this trade, and feel like I should have gotten it, but I didnt.

But then the pullback after the long tailed pin bar from C was incredibly corrective. This matched the impulsive selling at B theory the bears were taking over control short term.

The weak corrective pullback after c also suggested the bulls were unlikely to re-attack 15804 after failing 3x . If anything, theyd wait for a deeper pullback level . which to me was 15645.

As I was watching this corrective pullback just before my entry, my gut was telling me this was going to sell off towards 15645. The key now was where would I place my stop.

The only way this would have worked out with a healthy R:R ratio, would have been with a tight stop. And that option really only existed if I could place my stop above the prior bull candle to my entry.

Basically I was sensing the corrective pullback was about to end, and if my timing was right, I could have a tight stop and solid R profit.

I placed my entry at 15755 . with my stop 20 points above, and a 100 point target .

Turns out my timing was right, as the index sold off, and never recovered above the 20 EMA. 15 hours later, I hit my target of 15655 (just a few points above the projected support for +100 points and +5R profit .

You will notice the pullback to the level was a little slow, meaning there was a mix of bear and bull candles. This is common in counter-trend trades, because you are fighting the natural order flow in the market (in this case bullish).

Contrast this to the with trend trade on the CAC 40 which was all bull candles, thus virtually no selling orders present in the market on the way up.

Now could I have bought off the 15645 key support level for the Nikkei 225 chart? Probably, and that would have been quite prudent of me, especially if I was assuming the uptrend was still favored.

Whether I would have lost or won that buy is irrelevant. One trade by itself is irrelevant. The question is will that trade profit over 100 or 1000x, and my read is yes. This is why you have to trade and think in probabilities .

You will notice many of these charts were all displaying similar behavior. When presented with several charts displaying concordant price action context and opportunities, I always prefer to trade the ones with the most clear setups, and the greatest strength in favor of my trade.

The strongest counter-trend trade to me was the Nikkei 225. The strongest with trend trade was the CAC 40 trade, hence why I traded them.

In Closing

We cannot be afraid to trade counter-trend . There are times when trading counter-trend offers some really good opportunities, and we have to take those trades.

As a whole, counter-trend setups are a lower probability setup in contrast to trading with the trend .

Because of this fact, I prefer looking for larger R trades because the lower accuracy will be offset by the higher profit long term.

We also want to make sure there is a confluence of price action elements in our favor when trading counter-trend. If you were just a typical pin bar, engulfing bar. or inside bar trader, you would have missed all these setups .

It is the most ludicrous idea to me ( and other professional traders ) that you only take trades when 3 simple patterns emerge.

This faulty assumption is that there are only 3 good trade setups in this giant market, with all the different incarnations in the price action.

Im not sure about you, but that sounds like a ridiculous idea to me.

(NOTE: For some great book which annihilates the idea there are only 3 price action patterns to trade, read Mike Bellafiores book The Playbook )

You will also notice I was trading pure support and resistance levels. not any particular price action 1-2 bar pattern. I was reading the price action context in real time, not sitting idle waiting for some simple patterns before Id engage the market.

By waiting for some magic 1-2 bar patterns to emerge, you isolate yourself off from really good trade opportunities that occur all the time. In many cases, these other price action setups I speak of offer higher risk:reward setups than the patterns themselves.

Also, you will notice how clean the price action was in many of these charts. They were all on the 1hr chart, but you will see these types of setups on any time frame from the weekly down to the 5 minute (or 1 minute chart).

The skill of learning to read and trade price action in real time can be applied to any time frame. However, if you spend your time only trading 1-2 bar price action patterns, you will never build this skill set.

Lastly, you do not have to wait around for days to gather a +2 or +3 R trade. Waiting for weeks or almost a month to get a simple + 2R is a complete waste of time and your capital. The feedback loop before finding out if your trade was correct or not severely slows down your learning process.

Imagine a football player, golfer, or piano player waiting for weeks or months just to find out if one play, golf-stroke or run of the keys was correct ( or not ). That should point to you how damaging this is for your learning process.

Food for thought.

Announcing the Contest Winner:

There were some really good answers here with many of you showing really good price action skills. Because of this, Im giving a $50 discount to the winner (off any course), a $40 discount to 2nd place . and $30 off for everyone else who participated. For those that did, make sure to email me for your discount via the Contact Page and how to take advantage of it.

Based on all the answers, Id give the nod to Falco for the best answer ( most complete and closest to mine ). Hence Falco can get a $50 discount off any course. Id give 2nd place to Larry . so hell get a $40 discount off any course. Congrats to both of you!

Id like to thank you all for participating, taking time to really think about this, and dig into your price action skills. Trading in hindsight is always easy, but having to make decisions when the charts dont look perfect or form the ideal setups is where you are really challenged. Ironically, this is how the price action looks most of the time on your charts .

This is why it is helpful to engage in many learning opportunities, other than watching videos, reading lessons, and then making trades. Your learning and training has to be multi-faceted, including live forward simulation trading, time to review your trades, along with building your pattern recognition skills .

As traders, we must always test our skills . no differently than a professional athlete is constantly testing theirs. This constant training and testing (which never stops) is what elevates our abilities to profit in this market. and continually find a greater edge. This is what is required for those who want to trade successfully.

Series65Portfolio Management - Strategic vs. Tactical Asset Allocation

Strategic asset allocation calls for setting target allocations and then periodically rebalancing the portfolio back to those targets as investment returns skew the original asset allocation percentages.

The concept is akin to a "buy and hold" strategy, rather than an active trading approach.

Of course, the strategic asset allocation targets may change over time as the client's goals and needs change and as the time horizon for major events, such as retirement and college funding, grows shorter.

Tactical asset allocation allows for a range of percentages in each asset class (such as stocks = 40-50%).

These are minimum and maximum acceptable percentages that permit the IA to take advantage of market conditions within these parameters.

Thus, a minor form of market timing is possible, since the IA can move to the higher end of the range when stocks are expected to do better and to the lower end when the economic outlook is bleak.

The article Asset Allocation Strategies contains information on the various asset allocation strategies, from strategic and tactical, to other strategies such as constant-weighting, dynamic and insured.

On the test, strategic asset allocation may be linked with a "passive" investment style (see the Portfolio Styles section below), while tactical asset allocation is linked with an "active" investment style.

It uses only 2 custom indicators (my improved strategy) and 1 filter indicator to avoid trading in flat market. The stops of this forex strategy are very tight (depends on trading timeframe) and the profits are relatively high (from 3 to 10 times higher than stops). Etc. stops on H1 timeframe is 30 pips, average profit per trade 66 pips, and 94% success ratio.

There are 1000s trading strategies . many of them are complex, have many filters and most of the strategies ends up being inefficient (generating too little signals and false signals). But this forex trading system is one of the few which a truly profitable you will see it yourself.

When investors set up a new account, they are given access to updated information about investing in foreign currency and general trading guidelines.

What Is A Currency Trading Platform?

Every investment traded publicly or privately must be entered through an appropriate platform. Experienced brokers and novice individuals are both able to place orders to buy, sell, or trade through a software program. In the past, these orders were turned into viable transactions when commissioned brokers and registered representatives physically took the paper orders to an elevated stage, or trading platform, for execution. Today, a trading platform typically represents the avenue in which an investor chooses to place their orders. Forex trade requests can be placed online using a traditional desktop, laptop computer, or other electronic mobile device. The manner of investing may differ from one investor to another, but the way orders are entered is usually similar across all trading platforms. Individual investors have different needs and expectations, so they will choose the most suitable trading platform to meet their specific criteria. Some of the most commonly compared features of various trading platforms include charts, real time quotes, research options, and professional suggestions. Hands on investors want to have instant access to relevant information and real time trading data from around the world. Busy professionals and experienced investors who prefer to let an advisor handle their trading requests usually prefer not to be inundated with unnecessary information and data that will not impact their immediate trading decisions or their overall investment styles. Regardless of their investment style, there is at least one trading platform that matches the personality of every specific investor.

What Are The Special Features Of A Forex Trading Platform?

The most important aspect of any trading platform is the ease of use for investors. Education can come from many sources, and results are never guaranteed in any publicly traded investment opportunity, but a user friendly platform enables investors to take control of their financial portfolio with a sense of confidence. Key factors that impact an investor include the presence of trading tools and the absence of hidden fees. Investors want enough information available for their personal use and research to make an informed decision before investing. Savvy traders are likely to research specific economical factors for countries before choosing to invest in the nations currency. Each transaction will have some cost associated with it, but some platforms and investment firms charge investors an additional service fee or account maintenance fee either per transaction or per month.

Customer service is another determining factor for investors who are seeking an investment platform. Many companies and software programs feature a mixture of personal associates and searchable database tools for investors to reference when they have a problem or simply want more information. The relationship management piece is also important if an investor encounters a technical problem with the website or have a question about a specific investment opportunity. An efficient and reliable trading platform that offers a balance of self-service options, such as education onsite or through external links, and the availability of expert assistance is the perfect blend for most investors. Since there are so many options available for investors who want to experience the world of Forex trading, it makes sense for newcomers to spend time finding the most suitable Forex trading platform according to their specific needs and preferences.

Who Or What Is An Authorized Forex Dealer?

Several regulatory authorities serve to oversee the daily interactions of investment firms and registered representatives who conduct business on behalf of their customers. Federal guidelines typically provide the framework around which a nongovernmental body or organization enforces and upholds the law. These agencies provide multiple support outlets for consumers, clients, investors, and investment firms. They ensure the prompt and accurate transmission of orders and information. In addition, they provide checks and balances to remove any unfair advantages that may result from business practices that deviate from the normal and standard operating procedures. Another role for governing agencies is to ensure that trades are conduced ethically and methodically, in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

Because of the precise and sensitive nature of international trading and foreign currency trading, investment firms and financial representatives must be educated and experienced before being authorized to perform transactions on behalf of investors. Part of the training includes administering a standardized test to evaluate knowledge in specific areas of the investment and finance genre. Continuing education requirements must be met annually in order for a registered representative to remain actively licensed to practice in their specified territory. Due to the potential risk involved in currency trading, only authorized Forex dealers are permitted to provide information, post daily results, update tracking charts, and perform other research on behalf of currency traders. The authorized Forex representatives are able to conduct business for an individual or an investment company. Consumers can invest with confidence, knowing that their transactions are being process according to all applicable laws and international regulations.

How Can I Get Started With Online Forex Trading?

Investors who are new to foreign currency investments or trading in general, find the free practice account to be enlightening and informational. Investors can choose a Forex trading mock account that is funded with a basic minimum investment that can be traded according to real time information about the international trading market. Clients make trades based on the data available and are able to see how their decisions would have translated in the real world if they were using real money instead of the fictitious account. The trial account serves to give investors a chance to become familiar with trading currency and also to learn how to review information and understand the streaming data.

Real time information, including prices and recent transactions, are a vital part of trading on any stock or commodities exchange. Timing is everything when it comes to these ever changing markets, and in a volatile market even a few seconds can make a big difference between a profitable investment and a substantial loss. The lessons learned with a free practice account can help investors avoid common mistakes that newcomers often make. The real time streaming quotes can also help new investors get used to recognize the various symbols and country flags so they are able to view their screen at a glance and make educated choices about buying or selling foreign currency. Trading with real money is much easier after an investor has a chance to play the market and developing trading strategies with pretend money before investing their hard earned money in an unknown market.

What Are Spot Metals?

Gold, silver, precious, and industrial metals are frequently traded because they offer a universal value that is not necessarily dependent upon a specific country, business, or industry. While there is no such thing as a spot metal, these precious metals are sold at what is typically referred to as a spot price. The denomination of precious metals usually consists of a coin, bar, or bullion and will be specified somewhere in the transaction details. Investors who wish to dabble in the precious metals industry should take the necessary precautions to ensure they are confirming the purchase price and the amount of metal to be delivered or traded.

Every metal has a melt value that holds standard across the material and helps originating countries maintain a consistent placeholder for the value of the specified metal. The melt value is always calculated the same way in every country and equals the amount of the metal in the transaction by the spot price of the metal at the time the transaction was conducted. A metal sold at a premium represents the cost of the bar, coin, or bouillon that exceeds the melt value. Investors who deal in precious metals know that the spot price is based upon immediate delivery. This is an important factor to consider with precious metals because their prices vary greatly within a single business day. Traders can conduct transactions within a variety of precious metals within their Forex trading platforms if the carrier of the platform allows the transactions. Profits are made in precious metals when the value of the metal increases between the time of original purchase and the subsequent sale, or when an investor is able to hold the metals until they can be sold at a premium.

In What Ways Can I Manage The Funds In My Account?

There are multiple ways to fund and manage Forex trading accounts. Generally speaking, most trading platforms allow users to create accounts online and link their trading accounts to a major credit card, internet banking option, or checking account. There may be more stringent requirements for commercial accounts as opposed to personal checking or savings accounts. Automatic drafts make monthly contributions and regular trading activities convenient for frequent traders. Online trading platforms place a high priority on security measures for account maintenance and automated transactions so users can invest with confidence their their personal information is delivered through state of the art encryption methods. Brokerage houses and investment firms that offer Forex trading may accept payments in person at local banks or branches.

Once an account has been established and the identification of the account owner has been verified, trading activity can commence according to the account balance in the Forex trading account. Settlement times will vary based on the method of payment used. In most cases, the same methods of payment can be implemented for withdrawals and deposits. When traders want to withdraw some of their earnings, they may be able to request a bank to bank wire transfer or an automatic transfer into their checking or savings account. Alternatively, when a withdrawal request is not time sensitive, investors may request that a check in the amount of the sale proceeds be mailed to their address of record.

How Is Currency Trading Different From Other Investments?

There are many different types of investment vehicles, but no single avenue is suitable for every investor. Day trading volatile stocks and saving for retirement through an employer sponsored plan are both examples of investment vehicles that represent opposite ends of the spectrum. Independent investment options appeal to specific traders based on their overall risk tolerance. While some traders are willing to risk large deposits in hopes of the potentially higher rewards, other investors view this uncertain strategy as a form of gambling. They are not comfortable taking risks regardless of the possible payout. Even within an actively managed account, these investors probably prefer mutual fund investments over commodities or currency trading.

The main difference between stocks, bonds, commodities, and currency investments are the underlying product or service being offered. None of these investment options are instantly visible or tangible to the investor. Stock certificates represent ownership in a company relative to the total number of shares of stock owned by a shareholder. Corporations and government agencies may also issue bonds as a way to raise capital for a specific project or event. Bonds represent payment due from the issuer to the bondholder and includes a specific expiration date and interest rate, which are listed on the face of the bond certificate. The underlying commodity would technically be available upon the demand of the owner, but traders typically prefer to buy and sell rather than collect the actual commodity. Currency trading in effect transfers ownership of position rather than the actual currency being traded. Investors are essentially placing transactions based on their understanding and expectation of how the value of one nations currency will compare to the currency of another specific country within the specified time period. The end result of these transactions do not necessary mean that an investor is going to be paid with the currency of a foreign country.

What Does It Mean To Trade On Margin?

Many online brokerage accounts and Forex trading platforms allow customers the option to trade on margin. This process may also be referred to as trading on leverage or leveraging accounts. There is more risk associated with trading on margin, so this method of trading should be approached with caution and limited to experienced investors. When a person leverages their position and decides to make a transaction request on margin, they are not required to have the full balance for the worst possible outcome of the transaction in their trading account at the time the request is made. Although this is very convenient for frequent traders who want to place time sensitive orders, it can also result in a negative account balance if the trade settles in a manner that the investor did not expect.

Most trading platforms allow investors to trade on margin, but warn against the risk of this investment style. Software programs and brokerage houses may require that any debit balance is cleared and a trading account is brought to a positive balance before the investor is able to commence trading. In addition, the margin amount may increase for an investor who repeatedly trades on margin and fails to restore the account balance in a timely manner. The amount of the margin, or percentage of reserves that must be met before a margin transaction can be placed, may also increase for investors who frequently place leveraged account transactions. Trading platforms reserve the right to limit or prohibit margin and leverage transactions without notice.

What Is A Rollover Transaction?

There are a few investment terms that have the propensity to create confusion because they have different definitions based on the specific genre in which they are being discussed. For example, a rollover IRA is created when an individual transfers funds from an existing individual retirement account or from an employer sponsored account into a new account. This process essentially serves to shift the location of assets but does not incur any tax penalties or the realization of gains or losses when the same underlying investments are transferred to the new account.

In a Forex trading account, a rollover has a much different definition. Under the circumstances of trading foreign currency, the term rollover refers to the position an investor holds in their investment portfolio. Most trades and transaction request in foreign currency take two business days to settle. The settlement period includes a portion of time where the funds are not present in the investment portfolio or in the currency market. When an investor conducts a transaction with another trader, he or she has two days to rollover their position and deliver the amount of currency specified in the transaction to the buyer. The new owner must be able to take ownership of the currency at the end of the rollover period. Some trading platforms and software programs offer assistance to investors by automatically rolling over funds to meet the settlement period requirements for trades made during the course of the day.

What Do I Need To Know About Forex Trading Online?

Charts are one of the main ways that information is transmitted in the financial world. Most notably, line charts, bar charts, and candlestick charts are used to represent market trends and activity.

They offer a picture of market activity based on specific criteria such as time period, price fluctuation, and trading frequency. Although Forex investing does not necessarily require an exhaustive understanding of charting, some traders prefer to be somewhat well versed in the core concepts of charting.

Whether investors choose to review published charts or create their own handiwork charting their personal progress, they will likely choose one of the three main types of charts previously mentioned. Regardless of the style preference a user has, they can utilize any of these charts to review information and make informed trading decisions.

Line charts are the most widely used charting styles, because they are clear and easy to understand. Different points are plotted along the chart and can be connected with a single line to express a relationship or change in data.

Most daily reporting tools use line charts to represent a change in closing prices from one day to the next. Bar charts are somewhat similar to line charts in that they express data along a constant line. They are useful for looking at multiple data reports over a specific time period in a condensed and specific manner.

Bar charts can be used to exhibit information for a wide span of time, from one hour to a full month or longer. Candlestick charts are named for the unusual shape that consists of a large body of information that is tethered on either end by a solid line that represents a wick from a candle.

These charts are predominately used to compare opening and closing prices for a particular currency and are not typically used to compare prices over a long time period.

Should I Develop A Forex Trading Strategy?

Trading in foreign currency is not a new industry and there are several tried and true methods of successfully timing trades to earn profits. Although no method is completely foolproof, considering a trading strategy is important for a first time investor. Forex trading platforms that offer trial or mock accounts give investors a chance to play around with a few different strategies and even set up guess games where they randomly choose countries and execute trades. These transactions are entertaining and risk free because the investor does not have any real funds at stake. When it comes time to invest real money, most investors prefer to have a better strategy than blindly selecting random countries.

Experienced traders in foreign currency often look for specific data when considering how and when to execute a new trade. Support and resistance levels are an important factor in almost every trading strategy because they are good indicators of how the market will perform next. Support levels are created when a downward trend spikes back up to a specific point. The flat line is considered a support level, meaning the market will support the most trades when the price teeters near this point. Resistance levels work much the same way, except in the opposite direction. When a specific currency that is trending upwards suddenly reverts back to a lower point on the price line, it is said to have met resistance. Both of these concepts mirror general economic principles that are well founded and thoroughly researched.

What Is Trend Trading?

Financial advisors in most other investment vehicles recommend against market timing. Novice investors who attempt to time the market often fail for two basic reasons. First, when the market for a specific industry or company stock is very volatile, the market can change drastically within a few minutes. Even when investors are monitoring the market throughout the day, most real time synopses are reported in twenty minute intervals. Making trades based solely on the most recent activity could be a gamble, and many investors learn this lesson after facing a significant loss. The second way that day traders and inexperienced investors can lose money when trying to time the market is through transaction fees. Depending on the type of account they have established, the number of transaction fees assessed through frequent trading may outweigh the potential profits from the actual trades.

Forex trading platforms are different from many other investment options

They actually work in real time and traders must find creative strategies based mostly on market timing. While other factors do come into play, the most reliable information in foreign investment trading comes from recent executions. Trend trading focuses on the general direction a market is moving and is marked with higher than average closing prices.

Beginners find that trend trading is successful for their purposes

Those with a higher risk tolerance and more experience with foreign currency investing may dabble in counter-trend trading. This is more complex and attempts to enter the market at the precise moment when an existing trend is expected to reverse or slow down. More research is required for this technique, but the rewards are higher relative to the increased risk.

What Are Some Common Mistakes That New Traders Make?

Investing can be a rather intimidating experience, especially for new traders. Since foreign currency trading is even more complex than regular stock trading, many Forex trading platforms offer new users a chance to experience the currency exchange on a mock account before they actually invest money into their accounts. One of the most common mistakes that investors make is trying to analyze every detail of every foreign currency transaction. This overindulgence creates confusion and often becomes so overwhelming that traders become afraid to take any action. Another common problem occurs when investors do not take the time to learn anything about the foreign currency market and make rapid, unplanned trade executions. These two paradigms represent flip sides of the same coin and both scenarios can spell trouble for new investors. Traders use or fail to use information at their disposal and either never make a trade or make a series of irresponsible trades.

Since there is a fairly equal possibility to gain or lose money on any investment, new and experienced traders must weigh the risk and reward before conducting any transaction. Failure to recognize that a loss is plausible at any time causes investors to act more like gamblers than responsible financial stewards. Margin and leverage options make the concept of losing money even less realistic to investors who have radical tendencies and view these account features as a viable form of credit. Moderation is the key to any investment, and traders should not wager more than they are willing to lose on any single transaction.

What is a Forex Scam?

Foreign currency futures and options contracts can be traded legally on an exchange or board of trade approved by the CFTC. In addition, trading can be conducted legally where one or both parties to the trading is a bank, insurance company, registered securities broker-dealer, futures commission merchant or other financial institution, or is an individual or entity with a high net worth. Currency trading is not limited to these boards, exchanges, banks or insurance companies but anyone engaged in the exchange of currencies who is not regulated falls under the jurisdiction of the United States Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

The CFTC has witnessed the increasing numbers and growing complexity of financial investment opportunities in recent years, including a sharp rise in foreign currency trading scams. While much foreign currency trading is legitimate, various forms of foreign currency trading have been touted in recent years to defraud members of the public. Forex currency trading scams have increased in number recently and the problem has become so bad that the CFTC has released an advisory:

Currency trading scams often attract customers through advertisements in local newspapers, radio promotions or attractive Internet sites. These advertisements may tout high-return, low-risk investment opportunities in foreign currency trading, or even highly-paid currency-trading employment opportunities. The CFTC urges you to be skeptical when promoters of foreign currency trading claim that their services or account management will earn high profits with minimal risks, or that employment as a currency trader will make you wealthy quickly.

Forex scams are so numerous and take so many forms that it makes more sense to tell you how to identify a Forex scam than to atempt to list them. As you will see Forex scams have a lot in common with other investment scams with the main theme being: Getting Rich Quick with no risk to the investor. Anyone that makes this kind of promise should be avoided and possibly reported to the CFTC.

1. Stay Away From Opportunities That Sound Too Good to Be True.

Get-rich-quick schemes, including those involving foreign currency trading, tend to be frauds.

Always remember that there is no such thing as a free lunch. Be especially cautious if you have acquired a large sum of cash recently and are looking for a safe investment vehicle. In particular, retirees with access to their retirement funds may be attractive targets for fraudulent operators. Getting your money back once it is gone can be difficult or impossible.

2. Avoid Any Company that Predicts or Guarantees Large Profits.

Be extremely wary of companies that guarantee profits, or that tout extremely high performance. In many cases, those claims are false.

The following are examples of statements that either are or most likely are fraudulent:

Whether the market moves up or down, in the currency market you will make a profit.

Make $1000 per week, every week

We are out-performing 90% of domestic investments.

The main advantage of the forex markets is that there is no bear market.

We guarantee you will make at least a 30-40% rate of return within two months.

3. Stay Away From Companies That Promise Little or No Financial Risk.

Be suspicious of companies that downplay risks or state that written risk disclosure statements are routine formalities imposed by the government.

The currency futures and options markets are volatile and contain substantial risks for unsophisticated customers. The currency futures and options markets are not the place to put any funds that you cannot afford to lose. For example, retirement funds should not be used for currency trading. You can lose most or all of those funds very quickly trading foreign currency futures or options contracts. Therefore, beware of companies that make the following types of statements:

With a $10,000 deposit, the maximum you can lose is $200 to $250 per day.

We promise to recover any losses you have.

Your investment is secure.

4. Dont Trade on Margin Unless You Understand What It Means.

Margin trading can make you responsible for losses that greatly exceed the dollar amount you deposited.

Many currency traders ask customers to give them money, which they sometimes refer to as margin, often sums in the range of $1,000 to $5,000. However, those amounts, which are relatively small in the currency markets, actually control far larger dollar amounts of trading, a fact that often is poorly explained to customers.

Dont trade on margin unless you fully understand what you are doing and are prepared to accept losses that exceed the margin amounts you paid.

5. Question Firms That Claim To Trade in the Interbank Market

Be wary of firms that claim that you can or should trade in the interbank market, or that they will do so on your behalf.

Unregulated, fraudulent currency trading firms often tell retail customers that their funds are traded in the interbank market, where good prices can be obtained. Firms that trade currencies in the interbank market, however, are most likely to be banks, investment banks and large corporations, since the term interbank market refers simply to a loose network of currency transactions negotiated between financial institutions and other large companies.

6. Be Wary of Sending or Transferring Cash on the Internet, By Mail or Otherwise.

Be especially alert to the dangers of trading on-line; it is very easy to transfer funds on-line, but often can be impossible to get a refund.

It costs an Internet advertiser just pennies per day to reach a potential audience of millions of persons, and phony currency trading firms have seized upon the Internet as an inexpensive and effective way of reaching a large pool of potential customers.

Many companies offering currency trading on-line are not located within the United States and may not display an address or any other information identifying their nationality on their Web site. Be aware that if you transfer funds to those foreign firms, it may be very difficult or impossible to recover your funds.

7. Currency Scams Often Target Members of Ethnic Minorities.

Some currency trading scams target potential customers in ethnic communities, particularly persons in the Russian, Chinese and Indian immigrant communities, through advertisements in ethnic newspapers and television infomercials.

Sometimes those advertisements offer so-called job opportunities for account executives to trade foreign currencies. Be aware that account executives that are hired might be expected to use their own money for currency trading, as well as to recruit their family and friends to do likewise. What appears to be a promising job opportunity often is another way many of these companies lure customers into parting with their cash.

8. Be Sure You Get the Companys Performance Track Record.

Get as much information as possible about the firms or individuals performance record on behalf of other clients. You should be aware, however, that It may be difficult or impossible to do so, or to verify the information you receive. While firms and individuals are not required to provide this information, you should be wary of any person who is not willing to do so or who provides you with incomplete information. However, keep in mind, even if you do receive a glossy brochure or sophisticated-looking charts, that the information they contain might be false.

9. Dont Deal With Anyone Who Wont Give You Their Background.

Plan to do a lot of checking of any information you receive to be sure that the company is and does exactly what it says.

Get the background of the persons running or promoting the company, if possible. Do not rely solely on oral statements or promises from the firms employees. Ask for all information in written form.

If you cannot satisfy yourself that the persons with whom you are dealing are completely legitimate and above-board, the wisest course of action is to avoid trading foreign currencies through those companies.

10. Warning Signs Of Commodity Come-Ons

If you are solicited by a company to purchase commodities, watch for the warning signs listed below:

Avoid any company that predicts or guarantees large profits with little or no financial risk.

Be wary of high-pressure tactics to convince you to send or transfer cash immediately to the firm, via overnight delivery companies, the internet, by mail, or otherwise.

Be skeptical about unsolicited phone calls about investments from offshore salespersons or companies with which you are unfamiliar.

Prior to purchasing:

Contact the CFTC.

Visit the CFTCs forex fraud web page.

Contact the National Futures Association to see whether the company is registered with the CFTC or is a members of the National Futures Association (NFA). You can do this easily by calling the NFA (800-621-3570 or 800-676-4NFA) or by checking the NFAs registration and membership information on its website at nfa. futures/basicnet/. While registration may not be required, you might want to confirm the status and disciplinary record of a particular company or salesperson.

Get in touch with other authorities, including your states securities commissioner (nasaa), Attorney Generals consumer protection bureau (naag/), the Better Business Bureau (bbb) and the National Futures Association (nfa. futures).

Be sure you get all information about the company and verify that data, if possible. If you can, check the companys materials with someone whose financial advice you trust.

Learn all possible information about fees charged, and the basis for each of these charges.

If in doubt, dont invest. If you cant get solid information about the company, the salesperson, and the investment, you may not want to risk your money.

Didn't run with too much trouble with them so I would have gave them 4 or 3 stars however after they changed my account from a standard account to mini WITHOUT telling me, I phoned them to ring that I noticed the connection has been set to mini and I suspected they moved my account but their representative outright LIED to me and said that it was their "label" and that I was in fact still on a standard account.

Also, note that FXCM has HUGE debts because of the CHF crash, their future is not so bright so I would advise you to stay away from them and choose a more financially stable broker.

Since the deregulation of the forex trading industry in 1997, there has been a massive proliferation of internet based spot forex brokers. While this scenario might be a good thing in terms of the availability of choice for traders, too much of a good thing can also be bad.

However, all this started to change when a broker called eToro introduced the concept of social trading to the world in 2010 with the launch of their OpenBook social investment platform.

Forex Trading

Forex trading or more commonly known as FX trading is globally recognized as trading currencies. In terms of volume, forex trading is by far the largest market in the world.

Forex trading is largely unregulated in that there is no centralized exchange for trading. There are many levels of participants including large investment banks, hedge funds all the way down to retail traders.

Forex trading is largely affected by interest rates, economic growth of individual countries as well as geopolitics, trade flows and capital flows and mergers and acquisitions. A higher interest rate generally results in a stronger currency and higher inflation results in a weaker currency. In forex trading, the dollar is considered the benchmark currency.

I've been trading the foreign exchange market (forex) since 1992. Over that time I have purchased many books, ebooks, and systems to try and get an edge. With the exception of a few, I have had good results with just about all of them. To this day, I incorporate little pieces from each even though my trading style is almost 100% based on Gann, cycle, and geometric patterns and numbers.

How to use average true range for short-term trading

How to use average true range for short-term tradingHow to Use Average True Range for Short-Term Trading

Average True Range (ATR) is a very useful indicator that measures the overall price volatility. However, the ATR indicator is often overlooked by various traders because of the way it is displayed:

In addition to how it is displayed, many forex traders find issues with the actual indicator. Since ATR is based off the price movement and not percentage value, it is hard to compare ATR measures between different pairs. Another issue many traders have with ATR is that there is no specific benchmark for when to buy or sell. Despite all these issues, ATR still proves to be a very useful indicator. There is a simple solution to the problem most traders have with the indicator and to fully utilize ATR we need to use it in conjunction with another very common indicator.

Moving averages are a useful and common indicator that many traders use. In this case a 10 period simple moving average (sma) will be used to trigger entry positions. Below are the additional rules for entering our trades:

Entry Rules:

The price must cross over the moving average line and close on the opposite side

The trades direction will be determined based on the direction of the cross;

a long position when the price crosses from below and closes above the moving average

a short position when the price crosses from above the moving average and closes below

A trade can only be placed if it coincides with the current trend;

a long position must have a positive moving average slope

a short position must have a negative moving average slope

no trade should be placed if there is a flat moving average slope

With these parameters in place, we are given the following trade signals:

Although it appears that several valid trade signals have been generated, you still need to determine when and where to exit these positions. In order to do this you can use a variation of a moving average channel, one that is based off of the ATR.

The channel seen above is created by offsetting the moving average by a factor of the current ATR in both the positive and negative direction. You can use this channel to make your primary decisions on exiting your position. We base this off of the theory of mean reversion, with the assumption that when the price moves beyond a certain ATR range it is likely to reverse. It is important to note here that past performance are not indicative of future results. In this example, the two critical levels that will be used are the 1 and 1.5 ATR values.

The closest channel to the moving average represents a value of 1 ATR. The outer channel represents the 1.5 ATR level and will used as our target exit point. Based on where the price is in relation to the ATR channels, we are able to determine our additional exit conditions. Below is a list of exit rules.

Exit Rules

The position will be closed if the price crosses the moving average to the side opposite of the entry position and reaches the 1 ATR level on that side.

The position will be closed if the price crosses the moving average to the side opposite of the entry position and closes on that side.

The position will be closed if the price reaches the 1.5 ATR level.

The position will be closed if the price crosses the 1 ATR level on the entry side and closes:

below the 1 ATR line for long position

above the 1 ATR line for short position

Based on our entry and exit conditions, we would have seen the following results:

Typically this strategy works best in a trending market however it is still able to be applied overall market conditions. Additionally, the longer the time frame used, the more accurate this strategy has been in the past. Again, historical results are not indicative of future performance. There are many variations to this strategy that can be customized to a particular trading style. In particular, the use of a different type of moving average or a longer time frame for the moving average can greatly affect the overall strategy, specifically the frequency of your entry signals. When used in conjunction with proper money management skills and rigorous discipline, this strategy provides a unique opportunity that can lead to potentially successful trade set ups.

Ever wondered how a person living and earning in Indonesia pay his client who lives in United States? If the person pays in dollars then would he benefit in the transaction or incur a Similarly, would time and day be factors which will influence the total amount to be paid? There might be numerous questions, but all of them have a common solution through Forex trading. The foreign exchange market or the Forex is a nothing but a form of exchange for the global trading of international currencies. The foreign exchange market helps us in international trade and investment by making possible currency conversion. To put it in simple terms, we can say that a Forex transaction comprises of a party purchasing some quantity of currency by paying some amount of another currency. Hence, the person living in Indonesia will buy some quantity of US currency that is Dollars by paying certain amount of his own currency that is Rupiah. The exchange rate depends on lots of other factors which play an important role in deciding the total amount to be transferred.

The exchange rates are determined in the foreign exchange market or the Forex, where trading takes place 24 hours a day except weekends. The exchange rates are nothing but the rate at which one currency will be exchanged for the other. Considering the above example we can suppose that the person wants to transfer or exchange 7500 Rupiah from his client. If the interbank exchange rate is 7500 Rupiah for US$, then the person has to pay US$1 to make a transfer of 7500 Rupiah. The exchange rate can be divided into spot exchange rate and forward exchange rate. Spot exchange rate is nothing but the current exchange rate while the forward exchange rate is the exchange rate that is quoted and traded today but for future date delivery and payment. Mostly the exchange rate cannot be determined accurately, but some algorithms can be developed to get a close estimation. The exchange rates depend on factors like market psychology, economic conditions and political factors.

The political factors and economic conditions are key factors which one should keep in mind before making a transaction. Also, the leverage and volatility of the Forex market can encourage big losses among the traders. Therefore, proper research and practice should be carried so as to convert the loss due to volatility into greater profits. Hence, forex trading Indonesia is the best way of investing ones money.

Currently, there are huge marketing channels for the forex brokers in Malaysia. But, there are some cons which are associated with forex trading in Malaysia.

The increase of traders and marketing channels in Malaysia also increased the number of unregulated brokers which were involved in scams in Malaysia. The number of fraud cases and scams increased which forced the government of Malaysia to take strict action against fraudsters. Therefore, the government of Malaysia, the Malaysian central bank, and the bank Negara arrested and raided various individuals accused of fraud cases. The central bank after January 2010 has prevented traders from sending money outside Malaysia and also posted various warnings about forex trading on its official website. This step has drastically decreased the number of foreign brokers present physically in Malaysia. Although the Malaysian government has not regulated the forex trading, hence the local markets are still prospering in Malaysia. Online forums are one of the most used methods by new comers for becoming IB’s. Apart from the traditional online portals, social media are also increasingly used for advertisement. Hence, many new brokers have come who are using the social network as an opportunity to market social based.

Lightning talk: Verbs of data science (Abe Gong, Jawbone)

Abstract: Almost everything you've read and heard about data science focused on nouns: algorithms, software, infrastructure, etc. that data workers use, or products that they make. Noun-based texts teach tools and technical skills, but do not teach about time. Therefore, they have little to say about scheduling, deadlines, efficiency, and return on investment—fundamental concepts that separate abstract thinkers from productive doers. This lightning talk will kick off the evening with thoughts about the verbs of data science: how to arrange your workflow to get more data work done, on deadline.

What is Strategic Planning?

Strategic planning refers to an organizational process which aims to define strategies within an organization and make great decisions that work in the effective allocation of resources while also helping the organization reach its defined strategies. In order for the strategic planning process to be successfully carried out, it is essential for everyone to understand the present position of the organization while also learning the potential avenues that will let its people pursue a specific course of action which is suitable enough for the established organizational strategies and objectives.

Strategic planning also aims to determine where your organization will go within a specified period and the actions that you need to take in order for it to reach its long-term objectives. It is different from business planning because a business plan is primarily focused on a specific product, program or service while a strategic plan is established primarily for the whole organization. Different models, approaches and perspectives are also used by experts when carrying out the strategic planning process. The strategic plan is developed by taking into consideration essential organizational factors including the nature of leadership within the organization, its culture, the complexity of its environment, its size and the skills and expertise of all its strategic planners. With a well-developed strategic plan, your business organization will have an easier time surviving in the industry while significantly boosting its competitive edge.

Largest us forex brokers

Largest us forex brokersLargest Forex Brokers by Volume in 2015

A lot has changed in the retail forex market in the last twelve months. Without a doubt, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) decision in January to stop supporting the Swiss Franc (CHF) was the biggest event that shook the market and left Alpari UK filing for bankruptcy and FXCM scrambling for a bailout to survive. While the SNB event had major consequences for retail forex brokers, there were other long term trends that also contributed to the big changes in volumes at major brokers.

The SNB shock and how it affected the major forex brokers

The huge volatility and the 20% overnight movement in the EUR/CHF pair that followed SNBs decision to remove the Euro peg of the Swiss Franc had different consequences for brokers. Some of them weathered the storm without a scratch while others lost millions of dollars.

Alpari UK was wiped by the franc movement and on January 19 applied for formal insolvency. Another big name that was affected is FXCM. It was reported that the US broker had a massive $225 million in client negative balance and it was rescued by a bailout loan from Leucadia worth $300 million in order to continue operating. The shares in FXCM plunged after the event and have not recovered since (see chart below).

Saxo Bank is also believed to have suffered up to 107 million in losses from the SNB move and it is facing a potential class action lawsuit from some clients, while it is speculated that Saxo could go after clients with negative balances.

There are also clear winners from the SNB shock. Brokers like Direct FX, Oanda, XM, Hot Forex or Forex were left without a scratch and were fast to seize on the opportunity to attract more clients from the distressed brokers. XM was quick to point on its homepage that Negative Balance Protection is one of its most important values and traders are guaranteed to never go below zero, while Direct FX was the first broker to pay the clients debt caused by the event.

Overall, what represented the demise of Alpari UK was a huge opportunity for other brokers, who were proven to have better hedging and protection systems in place.

As veteran forex trader James Robertson points out, The SNB shock has meant game over for Alpari UK and a huge drawback for majors FXCM and Saxo Bank. Two years of volume growth have been wiped in the aftermath of the so called Francogeddon for FXCM and Saxo, and they can consider themselves lucky to still be operating. On the other side, XM, Direct FX and Hot Forex have emerged as the new growth stories of the forex market.

Other industry trends that shaped the retail forex market in 2014 and 2015

The forex retail market is very dynamic as hundreds of brokers compete for clients around the world. Online trading has extended to mobile trading, as many traders now prefer to trade directly from their smartphones or tablets, as they stay connected 24/7. Huge competition results in technological innovation and better service for the clients. As compared to several years ago, all major brokers feature several advanced trading platforms as well as mobile apps. Spreads went down and execution speed went up. All for the benefit of the clients. In the last two years we have identified several factors that determined the success and volumes of retail forex brokers.

The strengths and weaknesses of regulation

Too little regulation is dangerous because it affects credibility and safety, while too much regulation can hinder business growth. says James Robertsson, and he seems to be spot on if you look at how the forex industry developed.

Tough regulation with high entry requirements and low maximum leverage has reduced competition in the United States and Japan, formerly known as the most important markets. With little competition from new entrants on their home markets, American and Japanese brokers had little incentive to innovate and adapt to global trends, and this can be seen in their very low market share in foreign markets. American and Japanese brokers were unable to grow their business at a good rate in Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. On the other side, the low leverage enforced by the regulators has limited the upside on their home markets. This is why we can see American and Japanese brokers no longer dominating the global forex market as they used to do a few years ago.

It seems that the right balance was found by Cysec (The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission), which now regulates the fastest growing European brokers and it is the hot spot for regulation in the European Union. Brokers under Cysec regulation are doing very well worldwide and seem to be able to grow their business at a very fast rate. Another regulator that has enjoyed a very good reputation especially in Africa and Asia, as well as a lower cost of conducting business, is the FSC (Financial Services Commission) from the island nation of Mauritius.

Main features: Leverage, Spreads and Execution

Leverage plays an important role in increasing the volumes of traders with less capital and it is in high demand in emerging markets like Africa and Asia. High leverage helps brokers attract more customers and allows them to lower the minimum deposit requirements. Thats why the fastest growing brokers in emerging markets are the ones offering higher leverage. Since US brokers are not allowed to offer leverage higher than 50:1 they are unable to compete well in emerging markets.

Its been widely speculated that high leverage increases risks and tougher regulation forcing a broker to limit leverage will result in the reduction of risk. However, the SNB shock has proven that there is no link between maximum leverage and the broker being insulated from volatile markets. FXCM has lost millions of dollars although it was limited to a maximum of 50:1 leverage, while brokers like XM were not affected at all, despite having leverage up to 888:1. Brokers will often reduce the maximum leverage allowed before events that greatly increase market volatility, as it was observed during the Greek debt crisis when most brokers reduced leverage during high volatility weekends. This means that forex brokers with good risk-management teams can navigate market volatility on their own without the need of tougher regulation.

Spreads are also an important factor for many traders when choosing their broker. High profile brokers like FXCM, Saxo Bank or Forex tend to have higher spreads since they target traders with less experience and knowledge about the offering of other brokers. On the other hand, brokers like Hot Forex, XM or Oanda are known for their lower spreads and are very popular on forex forums and websites. Traders who do their due diligence well are more likely to choose a broker with lower spreads.

Forex brokers with lower spreads will have lower profit margins but have an advantage in client acquisition and tend to grow their client base and daily volumes faster. They also have a better client retention rate and higher profitability among their traders.

Execution is very important for scalpers and high frequency traders. Traders who use Expert Advisers to test their auto trading systems are also interested in the execution speed and quality. Slippage and re-quotes can be very harmful for scalpers and this is why they tend to look for scalper-friendly brokers. While they dont represent a high percentage of the total number of retail clients, high frequency traders (also known as day traders) account for a large share of total volumes as they place a lot of trades daily. Such traders want to stay away from Market Makers and prefer ECN and STP brokers who are scalper-friendly and have better execution and lower spreads. The most popular brokers among high frequency traders are Hot Forex and XM.

Promotions, Accessibility and Special Features

Promotions can be a very good incentive for new traders to choose a certain broker. High profile brokers like FXCM, Forex, Oanda or Saxo Bank do not offer special promotions for new traders as their market positions allowed them to boost margins instead of fighting for market share. This strategy offered them higher profits in the last two years but hampered their growth and resulted in a loss of market share.

On the other side are the two growth stories of the last two years, namely XM and Hot Forex.

Offering a $30 free bankroll with no deposit required was a great success for XM, especially in the emerging markets of Africa and Asia. While such promotion might be seen as a way of attracting only low capital clients, it proved to have many positive side effects that helped fuel the amazing growth experienced by XM. A free bankroll creates a lot of buzz in the forex online community and a lot of positive feedback from those who receive it. Many traders start small but in time they improve their skills and grow their capital and you can end up with high value traders who started with a free $30 bankroll. Another positive side effect of such promotion is that veteran traders who want to change their current broker are able to try the platform on live trading for free and once they are convinced by the quality of XMs services they bring in their capital and start trading big. XM also offers deposit bonuses that can add-up to the trading capital and are an additional incentive to choose them instead of other broker. Considering the fact that XM experienced the highest growth rate in both new customers and trading volumes in the last two years, we can conclude that their promotion was well received and may be one of the many reasons for their great success.

Hot Forex is the second growth story and it also features some interesting promotions. They offer three types of bonuses, called the Supercharged Bonus, the Rescue Bonus and the Credit Bonus. All of them have different advantages for different types of traders, and in the end they can be a decisive factor when one chooses his forex broker. Judging by the amazing growth rate of Hot Forex we can assume that their bonus policy was at least helpful.

Accessibility is another feature that proved to be very important for the brokers growth in the last two years. When moving global and trying to service tens of new markets with different characteristics, it is essential to be accessible to as many customers as possible. Local offices, translated versions of the brokers website in the local language as well as customer support, accessible funding methods and easy withdrawal of funds are very important to secure growth in international markets.

When it comes to localized service, multi-language support and website, the clear leaders are Saxo Bank, XM and Hot Forex. This greatly explains why they are very successful in Europe, The Middle East, Africa and Asia. On the other hand, Japanese and US brokers are well behind when it comes to localized services and multi-language support.

Deposit and withdrawal methods are another important factor that helped fuel the growth of the most dynamic brokers, XM and Hot Forex. Both of them allow deposits and withdrawals through credit and debit cards as well as all the popular e-wallets, including Neteller, Skrill (formerly known as Moneybookers) or Webmoney. They also allow deposits through prepaid cards like the popular Paysafecard or local debit cards like the Chinese Union Pay. XM and Hot Forex are the only two brokers offering a forex debit card that allows traders to withdraw their money directly at an ATM or to make purchases with a debit card linked directly to the trading account. The Forex Mastercard is very popular in Africa and Asia as it represents a very convenient and cheap method of withdrawing winnings from a foreign broker without local offices.

Hot Forex Debit Card

Coupled with the low minimum deposit requirements of both brokers, the high number of deposit and withdrawal options is one of the main reasons why the two brokers are the only majors who increased their market share in the last two years.

Special Features can also have an important role in volume growth and customer acquisition, as they can attract new customers as well as stimulate higher frequency trading. When it comes to special features, the clear winner is Hot Forex which is the leading forex broker in PAMM (Percentage Allocation Management Module) trading. Their PAMM accounts allow traders to be account managers or investors who automatically copy the trades of their managers.

Other special features that became very popular in the last two years are Social Trading and Forex VPS (Virtual Private Servers). Hot Forex offers both of them, but when it comes to VPS the leading broker is XM which offers a high speed free forex VPS for its bigger clients.

Commodities trading and technical analysis

Commodities trading and technical analysisCommodities Trading and Technical Analysis

By Chuck Kowalski. Commodities Expert

Most commodity traders incorporate technical analysis into their trading plan. Technical analysis differs from fundamental analysis in the sense that it utilizes prior price action to predict future price moves. Fundamental analysis basically focuses on supply and demand expectations of commodities to predict future price action.

In fact, most commodity traders utilize both methods. I mostly trade off the charts but I keep up on the fundamental picture to look for trades and to screen some marginal trades if they conflict with my charts.

To utilize technical analysis when trading commodities, you will want to start by looking at a price chart of the commodity you are interested in trading. There are many free sources on the Internet where you can find futures quotes and charts. Following the trend is one of the golden rules of trading so you will want to look for a chart that is steadily moving higher or lower.

Typically with technical trading, you will want to either buy an up-trending commodity when it is breaking out to new highs or it has corrected from the highs. This is a matter of preference to your individual trading style. I normally like to buy retracements within a trend unless a market is extremely strong. If so, I fell comfortable buying new highs.

The good thing about technical analysis is that it applies to all charts, whether they are 5-minute charts for daytrading futures or daily charts for longer term trading.

Continue Reading Below

The first thing you want to do is learn how to read charts and get a basic understanding of what types of patterns and indicators might setup market moves. From there, you can move on to more advanced commodity trading strategies with technical analysis.

It is important to understand that technical analysis is no an exact science. It is more of an art. The same goes for fundamental analysis. You will never be right every time when you trade commodities. Think of it as playing percentages. If you are right more often than you are wrong, you will come out ahead if your average loss is the same as your average gain.

10 Step Guide to Binary Options Trading

Binary Options are a way that anyone can profit from the movement in value of a large and dynamic range of commodities, assets, stocks and shares or even Forex.

The reason why these types of financial trades have become so hugely popular is that traders have to make just one of two possible decisions when placing them, that being yes or no decision which in Binary Options trading are known as Put or Call trades.

There is no requirement to actually purchase for example gold bullion if you wish to place a Binary Options trade on the value of gold, you simply need to decide whether the value of gold will rise in value or fall in value over any given time period.

One major advantage of placing Binary Options trades is that you will find a range of different expiry times are available which can be as short as just 60 seconds or as long as one month.

If you are new to the world of Binary Options trading then below is our 10 step guide (infographic ) which will enlighten you on all there is to know about placing Binary Options trades at any of our featured Brokers.

We are more than confident that once you read through the following guide you will be then able to place a large and very varied range of Binary Options trades online either via a no risk demo trading account or as a real money trader.

What Trades to Place The first decision you need to make when you are thinking of placing any type of Binary Options trade is just what asset, commodity or stock exchange you wish to place your trades on.

Once you have made an educated decision on just which type of asset, commodity or stock exchange you are interested in placing your trade or trades on you will need to decide just which way you think the value of that trade will move.

If you think for example the value of let’s say oil will fall in value then you will need to place a Put option, however if you think that the value of oil will increase in value then you will need to place a Call option.

Choosing a Broker You will of course need to select a Binary Options Broker to place your trades at, and with that in mind we would advise you to take some time taking a look through each of our reviewed Binary Options Brokers.

Safety Orientation & Training

The purpose of this document is to provide guidelines to all departments and crown corporations on the development and implementation of the new worker "Safety Orientation and Safety Training " element of their health and safety management system (HSMS).

Safety Orientation and Safety Training

A "new worker" is defined by the "Code of Practice for Young and New Workers", as any worker who is: new to the workplace; returning to the workplace where the hazards in that workplace have changed during the worker's absence; or a worker that has relocated to a new workplace where the hazards in that workplace are different from the hazards in the worker's previous workplace.

Ensuring that an appropriate Safety Orientation occurs is the responsibility of the supervisor. The supervisor should be very familiar with the work tasks that will be performed, the hazards associated with those work tasks and the processes and procedures that have been developed to mitigate the hazards.

The supervisor should review the information contained in the position specific Safety Orientation package on a regular basis and/or at a minimum, prior to the new employees first day at the workplace, to ensure that it is accurate and up to date. Based on the components of the Safety Orientation, a Site and Branch Specific Safety Orientation Manual should be created which should include all information outlined on the "Safety Orientation Checklist " and supported by the "Safety Orientation Checklist Supporting Document " template should be assembled for the new employee. A copy of this manual, including the information documented during the “Safety Orientation” meeting, should be provided to the employee following the meeting.

Delivery of the site and position specific safety information as outlined on the Safety Orientation Checklist should be completed and documented on the first day of employment. Throughout the Safety Orientation, the supervisor should be documenting any immediate training needs the new employee requires, to safely conduct their work, on the employees “Safety Training Plan .” Training in the areas indicated on the training plan must be conducted prior to the employee performing any hazardous work tasks associated with the position.

Safety Orientation and Safety Training will be performed and documented by the employees direct supervisor and/or delegate and will include:

A. Site Specific Safety Information captured on the "Safety Orientation Checklist Supporting Documentation " template and included in the Site and Branch Specific Safety Orientation Manual.

1. Emergency Procedures

Using an up-to-date map, show and explain to the new employee:

the emergency evacuation plan, including the route that he/she should take to exit the building from his/her work space and the muster point outside the building

locations of fire alarms and extinguishers

Physically walk the evacuation route with the employee, pointing out the fire alarms and extinguishers and the posted evacuation route nearest his/her workspace. Provide the employee with additional information as to viable exits in case he is not at his workspace when required to exit the building. If there any anomalies in your workplace, such as exits that are unusable, explain and show the new employee their location.

Provide the employee with the information contained in the “Emergency Preparedness ” element of your departmental safety plan.

Go over the first aid requirements, as per Yukon OHS Minimum First Aid Regulations, for the worksite and provide the first aid attendant contact information. On the up-to-date map, go over the clearly marked location of the first aid kits. first aid book and any other first aid equipment required at the workplace. Walk the employee to these sites.

Show the employee the location of the Health Safety Bulletin Board and review the information that is regularly displayed on it. The location can also be marked on the map.

3. Reporting Incidents and Near Misses

Review the “MINOR - Incident and Near Miss Investigating and Reporting " template and explain your expectations for completion and the procedure for processing the reports. Provide a link to the "Incident and Near Miss Investigating and Reporting " element of your safety program. Explain to the employee his "right to refuse unsafe work", your support of this right and the procedure to follow in doing so, as per OHS Act, Section 15, G. A.M. Policy 3.38, Corporate Health and Safety and Collective Agreement, Article 32, Section 32.07, Right to Refuse Work.

4. Joint Health and Safety Committee Members or Safety Representative Contact Information

Explain the Department/Branch Joint Health and Safety Committee or Health and Safety Representative requirement as it pertains to your department or crown corporation. Review the membership and contact information provided in the employees Site or Branch Specific Safety Orientation Manual. Show the employee the location of the Health Safety Bulletin Board and review the information that is regularly displayed. The location can be marked on the map.

B. Position/Job Specific Health and Safety Training Requirements

5. Certificates

Review the certificates required by the employee to perform his work (ie. drivers license, crane operator certificate). Copy the certificates for their personnel file and document the expiry dates on the Safety Orientation Checklist. Those certificates that are required, and not held by the employee, should be listed on the “Safety Training Plan ” template and will begin to form the employees training plan. If a certificate is required in an area, the employee will have to attain the certificate prior to performing the job duty.

6. Safe Job Procedures and Safe Work Practices

Review the list of Safe Job Procedures (SJP) and Safe Work Practices (SWP) that are pertinent to the position, with the new employee. Determine, through the safety orientation discussion, which SJP and SWP that they are fully trained and competent in (theory and practical) and in which they require further training. It is helpful to have a mini-quiz developed for each SJP/SWP in order to assure both yourself, as the supervisor, and the employee that he has a full understanding of the SJP/SWP as well as the supervisors expectations that they are understood and followed. If you have any concerns as to the employees skills, abilities, knowledge and understanding in any of the areas, put the SJP/SWP on the “Training Plan.” Training of a SFP/SWP can be performed by the supervisor or a co-worker who has demonstrated clear knowledge and understanding of the topic. Training will include a theory and practical component. Training to be completed prior to the employee performing hazardous work on his own.

7. Personal Protective Equipment or Work Equipment

Review and deliver the list of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and work equipment that has been assigned to the employee. Ensure that the manufacturers instructions accompany the assigned PPE and work equipment. Explain to the employee that it is your expectation that he review and follow all manufacturers instructions. Review and discuss the “PPE Maintenance Record ” document provided to the employee in his orientation manual. The discussion should include the employees knowledge and understanding of how the PPE and equipment functions and their ability to use it in a safe and effective manner. If you have any concerns as to the employees skills, abilities and knowledge, document the requirement for training on the specific PPE or work equipment on the “Training Plan.” Training can be performed by the supervisor or a co-worker who has demonstrated clear knowledge and understanding of the topic or it can be done in a more formalized “course” setting. Training will include a theory and practical component. Training to be completed, prior to the employee using the PPE or equipment or completing the job duties that require the use of the PPE or equipment.

8. Yukon Occupational Health Safety Act and Regulations

Review and discuss the specific Yukon OHS Act and Yukon OHS Regulations that the employee is to know and understand in relation to his position. Discussion should include an understanding of the interpretation of the specifics as it pertains to his job duties. If you have any concerns as to the employees skills, abilities and knowledge, document the requirement for training on the specific OHS Act or Regulations on the “Training Plan.” Training can be performed by the supervisor or a co-worker who has demonstrated clear knowledge and understanding of the topic. Training will include a theory and practical component.

C. Corporate Health Safety Management System Corporate Bank

9. Corporate Health and Safety Management System (CHSMS) Overview

On the computer, show the employee the YG Health and Safety Management System Corporate Bank website. Provide a link in the Site and Branch Specific Safety Orientation Manual. Review briefly how to navigate the website.

D. Department Health and Safety Management System

10. Review all elements of your Departmental Health and Safety Management System (DHSMS).

Provide a link to the document in the Site and Branch Specific Safety Orientation Manual. The elements of the DHSMS can be reviewed by the supervisor or a co-worker who has demonstrated clear knowledge and understanding of a particular element. This can be a co-worker within the employees new branch or it can be a co-worker outside of the employees immediate branch. The department could make certain employees the “expert” on certain aspects of the DHSMS and they could deliver that particular element to all new employees. Over time as each element is reviewed the employee and person providing the training will initial the appropriate section on the Safety Orientation checklist. The review may provide the appropriate level of training for some elements and more formalized “course” training may be required for some of the elements. This will vary from department to department and from position to position dependent upon the mandate of the department/branch or position.

The strategy center

Injuries, accidents and lost days not only threaten productivity and increase costs but can also have a significant effect on employee morale. The Strategy Center is able to ramp up quickly in response to your safety training needs. If your organization needs safety training to meet state or national safety laws, The Strategy Center can provide these quality services and training at a fraction of the cost of other vendors. Training can be customized for groups as small as one or two or large, corporate organizations. All training is customized based on a comprehensive assessment. In addition to core safety training, The Strategy Center team can assist in developing a sound safety plan, which is key to reducing and preventing accidents, and in turn increases productivity and profitability.

OSHA standards require that employers:

Maintain conditions or adopt practices reasonably necessary and appropriate to protect workers on the job;

Be familiar with and comply with standards applicable to their establishments; and

Ensure that employees have and use personal protective equipment.

Commodity trading hedging strategy

Commodity trading hedging strategyDouble Hedging

Catastrophe Futures

BREAKING DOWN 'Hedge'

Hedging is analogous to taking out an insurance policy. If you own a home in a flood-prone area, you will want to protect that asset from the risk of flooding – to hedge it, in other words – by taking out flood insurance. There is a risk-reward tradeoff inherent in hedging; while it reduces potential risk, it also chips away at potential gains. Put simply, hedging isn't free. In the case of the flood insurance policy, the monthly payments add up, and if the flood never comes, the policy holder receives no payout. Still, most people would choose to take that predictable, circumscribed loss rather than suddenly lose the roof over their head.

A perfect hedge is one that eliminates all risk in a position or portfolio. In other words, the hedge is 100% inversely correlated to the vulnerable asset. This is more an ideal than a reality on the ground, and even the hypothetical perfect hedge is not without cost. Basis risk refers to the risk that an asset and a hedge will not move in opposite directions as expected; "basis" refers to the discrepancy.

Hedging Through Derivatives

Derivatives are securities that move in terms of one or more underlying assets ; they include options. swaps. futures and forward contracts. The underlying assets can be stocks, bonds. commodities. currencies. indices or interest rates. Derivatives can be effective hedges against their underlying assets, since the relationship between the two is more or less clearly defined.

For example, if Morty buys 100 shares of Stock plc (STOCK) at $10 per share, he might hedge his investment by taking out a $5 American put option with a strike price of $8 expiring in one year. This option gives Morty the right to sell 100 shares of STOCK for $8 any time in the next year. If a year later STOCK is trading at $12, Morty will not exercise the option and will be out $5; he's unlikely to fret, however, since his unrealized gain is $200 ($195 including the price of the put). If STOCK is trading at $0, on the other hand, Morty will exercise the option and sell his shares for $8, for a loss of $200 ($205). Without the option, he stood to lose his entire investment.

The effectiveness of a derivative hedge is expressed in terms of delta. sometimes called the "hedge ratio." Delta is the amount the price of a derivative moves per $1.00 movement in the price of the underlying asset.

Hedging Through Diversification

Using derivatives to hedge an investment enables for precise calculations of risk, but requires a measure of sophistication and often quite a bit of capital. Derivatives are not the only way to hedge, however. Strategically diversifying a portfolio to reduce certain risks can also be considered a—rather crude—hedge. For example, Rachel might invest in a luxury goods company with rising margins. She might worry, though, that a recession could wipe out the market for conspicuous consumption. One way to combat that would be to buy tobacco stocks or utilities, which tend to weather recessions well and pay hefty dividends .

This strategy has its tradeoffs: if wages are high and jobs are plentiful, the luxury goods maker might thrive, but few investors would be attracted to boring counter-cyclical stocks, which might fall as capital flows to more exciting places. It also has its risks: there is no guarantee that the luxury goods stock and the hedge will move in opposite directions. They could both drop due to one catastrophic event, as happened during the financial crisis. or for unrelated reasons: floods in China drive tobacco prices up, while a strike in Mexico does the same to silver.

Managing Commodity Price Risk Using Hedging and Options

Table of Contents

Introduction

This Factsheet provides an overview of commonly-used price risk management tools as well as concise and easily understandable definitions of terms used by those providing risk management advice.

Purpose of Futures Markets

Futures markets are price discovery and risk management institutions. In futures markets, the competing expectations of traders interact to discover prices. In so doing, they reflect a broad range of information that exists on upcoming market conditions. Futures markets are actually designed as vehicles for establishing future prices and managing risk so you can avoid gambling if you want.

For example, a wheat producer who plants a crop is, in effect, betting that the price of wheat won't drop so low that he would have been better not to have planted the crop at all. This bet is inherent to the farming business, but the farmer may prefer not to make it. The farmer can hedge this bet by selling a wheat futures contract .

Futures contracts are sometimes confused with forward contracts . While similar, they are not at all the same.

Forward Contracts

A forward contract is an agreement between two parties (such as a wheat farmer and a cereal manufacturer) in which the seller (the farmer) agrees to deliver to the buyer (cereal manufacturer) a specified quantity and quality of wheat at a specified future date at an agreed-upon price. It is a privately negotiated contract that is not conducted in an organized marketplace or exchange.

Both parties to a forward contract expect to make or receive delivery of the commodity on the agreed-upon date. It is difficult to get out of a forward contract unless the other party agrees.

All forward contracts specify quantity, quality and delivery periods. If any of these conditions are not met, the farmer will usually have to financially compensate the buyer. It is essential you understand your legal obligations before entering into a forward contract in case you cannot meet the conditions of the contract.

Futures Contracts

Futures contracts, while similar to forward contracts, have certain features that make them more useful for risk management. These include being able to extinguish contract obligations through offsetting . rather than actual delivery of the commodity. In fact, very few futures contracts are ever delivered upon.

Futures contracts are traded on organized exchanges in a variety of commodities (including grains, livestock, bonds and currencies). They are traded by open outcry where traders and brokers shout bids and offers from a trading pit at designated times and places. This allows producers, users and processors to establish prices before commodities are traded. Futures prices are forecasts that can and do change according to a variety of reasons, such as crop or weather reports.

There are basically two types of traders: hedgers and speculators.

Hedgers are people who produce, process or use commodities and want to reduce their price risk or establish prices for commodities they will trade in the future.

Speculators are people who attempt to profit through buying and selling, based on price changes, and have no economic interest in the underlying commodity.

Futures contracts have standardized terms established by the exchange. These include the volume of the commodity, delivery months, delivery location and accepted qualities and grades. The contract specifications differ, depending on the commodity in question.

This standardization makes it possible for large numbers of participants to trade the same commodity, which also makes the contract more useful for hedging.

Trading Gains and Losses

It helps to study speculation first - trading futures without an interest in the underlying commodity - in order to understand hedging.

September corn is trading at $3.50/bu, but you believe the price will be lower than this in September. You might take a short position (sell futures), and if the price falls, profit from offsetting with a long position (buying back futures):

Grain Price Hedging Basics

File A2-60

Updated July, 2015

The business of a crop producer is to raise and market grain at a profitable price. As with any business, some years provide favorable profits and some years do not. Profit uncertainty for crop producers arises from both variance in the cost of production per bushel (especially from yield variability) and uncertainty of crop prices.

Many techniques are used by producers to reduce risk from production loss. These may include adequate size of machinery, rotating crops, diversification of enterprises, planting several different hybrids, crop insurance, and many others.

Crop producers also have marketing techniques which can reduce the financial risk from changing prices. Rising prices generally are financially beneficial to producers and falling prices are generally harmful. However, it is never known with certainty whether prices will rise or fall. Futures hedging can help establish price either before or after harvest. By establishing a price, the producer protects against price declines, but also generally eliminates any potential gain if prices rise. Thus, through hedging with futures, producers can greatly reduce the financial impact of changing prices.

How Prices are Established

Prices of corn and soybeans are established in two separate but related markets. The futures market trades contracts for future delivery. These future contracts are traded at a commodity exchange and are for a specific time (contract delivery month), place (primarily Chicago, Illinois), grade (#2 yellow shelled corn), and quantity (1,000 or 5,000 bushel contract sizes). The cash market is where the physical grain is handled by firms such as country elevators, processors, and terminals.

The term basis refers to the price difference between the local cash price and the futures price. The basis is different at alternative marketing locations. Thus, for effective marketing, it is important to be aware of the local basis at country elevators, as well as at nearby processors or terminals.

Local cash prices thus reflect two components: the futures price and the local basis. Figure 1 helps illustrate this point. As an example, a local cash bid of $2.50 per bushel for corn may be derived from a futures price of $2.70 and a local basis of 20 cents. It is helpful to think of local cash prices in terms of the futures component and the basis component when examining marketing alternatives.

The Hedging Concept

Producer hedging involves selling corn futures contracts as a temporary substitute for selling corn in the local cash market. Hedging is a temporary substitute, since the corn will eventually be sold in the cash market.

Hedging is defined as taking equal but opposite positions in the cash and futures market. For example, assume a producer who has harvested 10,000 bushels of corn and placed it in storage in a grain bin. By selling 10,000 bushels of corn futures the producer is in a hedged position. In this example, the producer is long (owns) 10,000 bushels of cash corn and short (sold) 10,000 bushels of futures corn.

Since the producer has sold futures, price has been established on the major component of the local cash price. This can be seen in Figure 1, which illustrates that the futures component is the most substantial portion of the local cash price.

Selling futures in a hedge leaves the local basis unpriced. Thus, the final value of the corn is still subject to fluctuations in local basis. However, basis risk (variation) is much less than futures price risk (variation). By selling futures, the producer has eliminated the financial loss which would occur on the cash grain from a futures price decline.

The hedge position is removed or lifted when the producer is ready to sell the corn in the cash market. It is lifted in a simultaneous two-step process. The producer sells 10,000 bushels of corn to the local grain elevator and immediately buys back the futures position. The purchase of futures offsets the original short (sold) position in futures, and selling the cash grain converts the position to the cash market.

Producer Hedging Illustrations

Hedging involves taking opposite but equal positions in the cash and futures markets. If you own 10,000 bushels of corn as discussed above, you are long cash corn. If you sell 10,000 bushels of corn on the futures market you are short corn futures.

If the price increases as shown in Figure 2, the value of the cash corn also increases. However, the futures contract incurs a loss because you sold (short) corn futures and now have to buy corn futures at the higher price to close out the futures position. If both the cash and futures prices increase by the same amount, the increase in the value of the corn will exactly offset the loss in the futures market. The net price received from the hedge is exactly the same as the cash price when the hedge was initiated (not including trading cost, interest on margin money, or storage costs).

If the price decreases as shown in Figure 3, the value of the cash corn also decreases. However, the futures contract results in a gain because you sold (short) corn futures and now can buy corn futures back at a lower price to close out the futures position. If both the cash and futures price decrease by the same amount, the decrease in the value of the corn will exactly offset the gain in the futures market. The net price received from the hedge is exactly the same as the cash price when the hedge was initiated (not including trading cost, interest on margin money, and storage costs.)

The difference between the cash price and the futures price is the basis. The basis in the illustrations in Figure 2 and 3 is the same when the hedge is lifted as when it was initially placed. However, if the basis is smaller when the hedge is lifted as shown in Figure 4, the gain in the cash market will be greater than the loss in the futures market and the net price received from the hedge will be slightly larger. The outcome is the same if prices decline (Figure 5). The loss in value of the cash grain will be less than the gain in the futures market resulting in a higher net price.

Basis usually narrows from harvest into the winter, spring and summer; resulting in a higher price. However, a higher price is needed due to the cost of storing grain past harvest. Whether the basis narrows and by how much is not known until the hedge is lifted. Although hedgers can lock in the futures price when they hedge, they are vulnerable to basis changes.

Hedging can also be used to establish a price for a crop before harvest. Assume the hedge is placed before harvest but lifted at harvest. The net price (not including trading cost or interest on margin money) is the futures price at the time the hedge is placed, less the expected harvest basis. If prices are higher at harvest, the higher cash price is offset by the futures loss. If prices are lower, the futures gain is added to the lower cash price.

Processor Hedging Illustrations

If you are a grain processor or livestock producer needing grain for processing or feed, hedging can be used to protect against rising grain prices. Once again hedging involves taking opposite but equal positions in the cash and futures markets. But in this case, you dont have grain that you plan to sell but rather plan to buy grain at a future time period to fill your processing or feed needs. Instead of selling futures at the time of placing the hedge, you buy futures. So you own grain (futures) in the futures market but are short grain in the cash market (will need grain but dont own any).

If grain prices rise as shown in Figure 6, you make money in the futures market because you purchased futures and can now sell them at a higher price. However, the grain for processing or feed needs now cost more. So the gain in the futures market offsets the increase in the grain purchase price.

If grain prices drop as shown in Figure 7, the futures you purchased at the beginning of the period must now be sold at a lower price. However, the grain for your processing or feed needs now cost less. So the loss in the futures market offsets the decrease in the grain purchase price.

If the difference between the cash and futures prices remains the same over the hedging period, the loss in one market will exactly offset the gain in the other market (not considering transaction and interest costs).

Mechanics of Placing a Hedge

Once hedging principles are understood, a key decision in the hedging process is selecting the right commodity broker. A producer or processor should expect the broker to accurately and quickly execute orders and serve as a source of market information. Most brokerage firms have weekly market reports as well as periodic in-depth research reports on the market outlook which may be useful in formulating a marketing strategy. Also, a commodity brokerage firm that is familiar with local cash market opportunities has some distinct advantages.

It is extremely important that a broker understand how hedging and price risk management fit into the marketing program of the producer or processor. The producer (processor), and the broker must realize that hedging is a tool to reduce price risk. However, producers (processors) sometimes use futures markets to speculate on price changes and thus are exposed to increase price risk. Generally, speculation and hedging should be done in two separate accounts. Inexperienced hedgers should seek a broker willing to help them increase their understanding of market mechanics.

After selecting a broker, formulating a marketing plan, and opening a hedge account, the producer is ready to place trading orders. The broker can supply information on the types of orders to place. Once the broker receives the order, it will be phoned or wired to the floor of the commodity exchange. The order is relayed to a pit broker who will execute it in the trading pit, provided it is within the current market range. A confirmation of the executed order is then phoned or wired back to the local broker. Many brokerage firms can execute the order while the client waits on the phone for the confirmation price.

To maintain a position in the futures market, producers (processors) must deposit margin money with the brokerage firm. Initial margin requirements provide financial security to insure performance on the futures commitment. If the producer (processor) sells (buys) a contract in the futures market and the futures price subsequently rises (declines), this represents a loss of equity in the futures position. These higher (lower) prices may require additional funds to maintain the hedge position. If the futures price moves down (up); the producer (processor) who sold (bought) futures will have futures profits credited to his/her account. The producer (processor) can call for this excess margin to be paid to him/her. In the futures market the margin position is updated each day.

Margin calls should not be viewed as a loss but rather as part of the cost of insuring against a major price decline (increase). In a producer hedged position, losses on futures contracts are offset by the increasing value of the physical grain inventory. In a processor (livestock producer) hedged position, losses on futures contracts are offset by lower priced cash grain purchases.

Although margin calls should not be viewed as a loss, they complicate a producers cash flow. If prices rise, the futures loss must be paid (additional margin) as the loss accrues. However, the additional value of the grain is not realized until the grain is sold when the hedge is lifted. For grain processors and livestock producers, falling grain prices can result in margin calls before the benefits of lower priced cash grain purchases are realized. So, a cash flow problem may occur.

Once the position is closed out, the producer is no longer required to maintain a margin account (for that transaction). Thus the producer (processor) can received his margin deposits, plus (minus) futures profits (losses), less brokerage fees.

Why do options strategies have such funny names

Why do options strategies have such funny namesWhy do options strategies have such funny names?

optionsguy posted on 06/17/10 at 09:19 AM

Why do options strategies have such funny names like "iron condor" or "naked strangle"? Today's post discusses the origins of options' very colorful terminology.

If you've ever wondered at the very weird names of options strategies, here's the perfect read for you: "Condors" and "Jelly Rolls": Calls of the Options Game by Tennille Tracy of The Wall Street Journal. I've always loved the colorful terms options traders use to describe complex options trades, so I had a great time speaking with Tennille for this article - and an even better time reading the finished product.

Some of these names aren't just fanciful; they can help you remember how the trade works. The building blocks of any options trade are the two options types, "puts" and "calls". When you buy a call, it gives you the right (but not the obligation) to buy the underlying stock at the strike price. Expressed another way, it gives you the right to "call" stock away from a call seller, who must sell stock to you at the strike price. Similarly, when you buy a put, you're buying the right to "put" stock to someone, that is, sell the stock at the strike price. The person you "put" that stock to would be a put seller who gets assigned and must fulfill their obligation to buy stock at the strike.

As I explained in the article, "There is a logic to naming trades. Common names, such as "verticals," "horizontals" or "diagonals"—which involve two different sets of options—developed because of the way they look when displayed on a trading floor's quote board. Vertical trades, for example, involve two options in the same month, but different strike prices and appear in a column on the quote board, while horizontal trades involve options in two different months, but with the same strike price and appear side by side."

I was really pleased to see that our own invented option name, the Fig Leaf, got some publicity at the end of the article. As you may recall, we ran an informal contest on this blog to name a common but unnamed option play: selling a near-term, out-of-the-money call option against a long-term, high-delta, in-the-money call position. The concept is that the long term call would act as a surrogate for the long stock in a "normal" covered call trade. You're not exactly as "covered" as you would be if you held long stock as the underlying, but you're not exactly naked either. TradeKing client Weird Uncle Jesse coined the winning name, which I still love: the Fig Leaf. With the tag line "you're kind of covered". Nice work, WUJ!

If you come across any interesting stories as to how certain strategies got their names, I'm all ears. For one, I've always wondered if the iron butterfly owed anything to the 1970s rock band of the same name. In fact, how about this: we'll send a free Options Playbook to anyone who chimes in with a good options-naming story that's not already covered in the Journal article. Have at it, folks!
