Foreign Currency Trading - Forex A Basic Explanation

By Arthur U. Fellon

The story was once told by a proud father of his young boy who previously had no business sense or acumen what so ever. It seems that this young lad had parlayed a meager sum of his money and cash into a rather large sum of funds simply by changing his wealth on a regular basis from one currency to another. As the young fellow instructed his father. Anyone can do it. You simply read the newspaper for current currency rates. It does not cost anything. Then I went to the bank and purchased traveler's checks , which to his good fortune his bank included in his service fee package. If the paper told me that dollars went up , I cashed in my US dollar denominated Amex travelers checks. If British pound sterling was low , I would use those funds to buy units in that currency. Add in Japanese Yen and E.U. European money into the mix , and all in all you have a simple explanation of forex , foreign currency trading. Interestingly the young man was able to place down a substantial down payment for a substantial new home in Coquitlam Canada.

In business and investments , money is always changing hands . What goes up and some point goes down. Buy low and sell high is the refrain. This is the whole point of the exercise - to buy specific currencies when they are being sold at a lower rate than would be expected and sell these same holdings either at a higher value at a given point in time , and yet at other times to even dump holdings before times get even worse for the party in question. No trader can ever be right 100 % of the time , just as no stock broker can be unfailingly accurate each and every trade. It is a numbers game overall - the winner picks the best and wisest choice in the highest percentages of trades. Its a simple as that.

Some people and financial authorities will advise their clients that done with research , analysis and care forex foreign currency trading can be a most lucrative investment pastime , endeavor or even hobby. Yet others get carried away with the whole fun of the game. One must remember that overall you are in the pit to make money , increase your wealth and holdings not to lose your shirt and cause both yourself and your family members financial hardship and hardships.

Currency markets are heavily influenced by news happenings. A change of political fortune or an election can change the value of a currency. A storm or natural disaster can do the same. Forex trading has the potential for large gains, but conversely there is the risk of large losses. If you enter the forex speculation Market you need to be clear what your risk profile is.

There are ways to protect you in such a volatile market such as stop loss trading. This is where you set a lower limit below which you do not want to pass and if the currency pair drops below this your trade will be made, there by protecting you from any further drop in the currency value. - 23208
