Trends and tendencies

May 6th, 2010

If a trader expects that working on Forex market can bring regular profit he needs to realize the economic laws according to which the market is functioning, as well as the peculiarities of the market.

This article dwells on the notion “market tendency”, or a trend. A trend and tendency both denote the general direction which the currency fluctuations follow at Forex market. Constant analysis, monitoring and estimation of tendencies and trends on the market allow a trader to open positions timely and gain profit. The majority of novices make the mistake as they do not pay attention to the overal trend direction while opening positions; this leads to opening false positions and a sequent loss of funds. Watching the dynamics of increases and downfalls a trader can see the dominating on the market tendency, its duration and can predict further advances.

On the whole, there are three types of trends on Forex:

The bullish trend is also called an uptrend or an upward trend. The peculiarity of this trend is that the lowest prices of market fluctuations start to increase gradually. The notion “bullish” appeared on the analogy with the animal ‘a bull’ who is tending to raise the enemy on his horns – or in case with Forex – the price.

The bearish trend is called a down-trend, or a downward trend as well. The characteristic is that prices start the declining movement. The name “bearish” emerged because of the connection with ‘a bear’, which as if pressurizes the price with all his heavy body.

Sideways trend or the flat market and the trendless market, denotes that there is no trend. A long-term flat demonstrates that in the nearest time there will be a strong break though on the market either directed to the bullish or to the bearish trend. The major feature of the flat is a lack of a clear price movement.

The basis of financial markets is the price. The result of any operation conducted at Forex currency market is fully dependent on the price. The price is very flexible and exposed to constant changes. Before conducting an operation on Forex, make sure that the trend is really up-to-date for the market and it is not a short-time recoil of the price in the opposite direction, this mistake is often made by traders with little experience, thus they are exposing their funds to a big unreasonable risk.

The most frequent mistake for a beginning trader is the wrong time of closing the position. A trader can make the incorrect market analysis, make a false determination of a market movement direction or even ignore the trend. This will inevitably lead to the situation when the position which could have brought profit, but was closed in bad moment will on the contrary bring significant losses. In order to define the trend on Forex market a trader can use numerous technical indicators and the market analysis.

If you are tending to achieve success on the international Forex market, do not forget about the important rule – a trend is your friend.

Trust management: who can you entrust your capital to?

April 29th, 2010

It is of common knowledge that money should be made use of, and not simply saved. The sense of money is to bring profit. There are different ways to gain money, although the international currency market Forex is the most profitable and attractive for yielding.

Statistics demonstrates that the number of clients, who allocate their assets using trust management, is increasing by 30-40% each year.   Below we will dwell on several types of trust management.

Individual trust management. In order to invest money one needs to find an experienced trader who is to have statistics of his operations on real trading accounts. You should find out the peculiarities of the trading platform applied by him on Forex. To get maximal security you should open the account for your real name. In this case the investor is only depositing and withdrawing funds whereas the trader receives the password to the trading account and an access to its management. Although it is advisable to comment on the details in the agreement accepted.

Collective trust management. This type of management appeals to those who do not have a big sum of money. Here you should analyze the guarantees as there is no legal regulation. In this situation the possible risks are significantly higher than with individual trust management, because the investor opens an account not for his name, he just allocates the funds.

Irrespective of form the trust management is at the same time a highly profitable and a partially risky investment of funds.  Remunerative – because you trust the funds to an effective Forex market participant, and risky – because you are not able to control everything, and be 100% sure of the trader’s professionalism. Nevertheless, to minimize possible risks of losses it is needed to describe all rights and liabilities for both parties in the agreement.

In this respect the third type of trust management is up-to-date, which is the participation in PAMM-system of a large and reliable broker. At the moment a line of the companies with a high status and rating offer a possibility to invest in their clients’ trading, or in managing traders, whose trading characteristics at Forex market show high yield.

There are two types of PAMM-accounts: PAMM-trader account and PAMM-investor account.

The peculiarities of these two types are that PAMM-investor account can only invest funds in PAMM-trader accounts and PAMM-trader accounts can only accept the investments from PAMM-investors.

PAMM-system has a few differences from trust management, and one of the major is that the managing trader trades mostly with his own funds and even when he accepts investments he cannot withdraw his own funds. Thus, he will always be working not only with investors’ but also with his personal funds.

An important feature of PAMM-system is risk diversification, investing funds of PAMM-investors in PAMM-accounts of various traders, which lowers the risks of losses.

For the present day, InstaForex Company offers the best by its options and conditions PAMM-system for managing traders and investors.
