Pengenalan Trading Valas / Forex Trading

FOREX Trading atau yang lebih dikenal dengan Bursa Valas (Valuta Asing) merupakan suatu jenis perdagangan/transaksi yang memperdagangkan mata uang suatu negara terhadap mata uang negara lainnya yang melibatkan pasar-pasar uang utama di dunia selama 24 jam secara berkesinambungan. Mengingat tingkat likuiditas dan percepatan pergerakan harga yang tinggi, Forex trading telah menjadi alternatif yang paling populer karena ROI (Return Of Investment atau kembalinya nilai investasi yang telah kita tanam) serta profit yang akan didapat bisa melebihi rata-rata perdagangan pada umumnya (biasanya rata-rata return berkisar lebih dari 5% - 10% per bulannya, bahkan bisa mencapai lebih dari 100% per bulannya untuk professional trader).


Akibat pergerakan yang cepat tersebut, maka trading valas/forex trading juga beresiko tinggi apabila anda tidak mempunyai pengetahuan yang cukup serta pengaturan manajemen keuangan dengan baik. Investasi perdagangan valas (forex trading) online, memberikan alternatif income yang menjanjikan.

  • Mempunyai skala global yaitu mengikuti kemajuan teknologi.

  • Mudah karena bisa dilakukan langsung via Internet menggunakan komputer

  • Murah karena modal minimal tidak sampai puluhan juta rupiah

  • Fleksibel karena dimanapun anda berada asal terhubung ke jaringan anda bisa berbisnis

  • Unik karena banyak dari masyarakat kita yang belum mengetahuinya sehingga mempunyai prospek yang bagus.


Mata uang apa yang diperdagangkan?
Yaitu semua mata uang dunia yang memiliki daya jual tinggi. Contoh: USDollar, Yen, Euro, Franc, Poundsterling (EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF) dan lain-lain.

Bagaimana proses transaksinya?
Apa itu “Beli/Jual” dalam bursa valuta asing ini? Di bursa valas ini anda dapat membeli ataupun menjual mata uang yang diperdagangkan. Secara obyektif adalah untuk mendapatkan profit atau keuntungan dari posisi transaksi yang anda lakukan.

Contoh: jika anda membeli (BUY/Offer/Long) suatu mata uang dan pergerakan harga mata uang tesebut menunjukkan grafik kenaikan yang signifikan, maka anda dapat mengambil keuntungan dari perbedaan harga tersebut dengan menutup posisi beli anda, begitu pula sebaliknya apabila anda melakukan menjual (SELL/Bid/Short) dan kemudian pergerakan harga mata uang tersebut mengalami grafik penurunan, maka anda juga dapat mengambil keuntungan dengan menutup posisi jual anda tersebut.

Apakah di FOREX itu "Two Ways Opportunities?
Ya! Transaksi di FOREX dapat dilakukan dengan cara 2 arah dalam mengambil keuntungannya. BUY (beli) dahulu, lalu ditutup dengan take profit SELL Liquid (jual) ataupun sebaliknya melakukan SELL (jual) dahulu, lalu ditutup dengan take profit BUY Liquid (beli).

Bagaimana cara menghitung hasil transaksi saya di FOREX?
Berikut adalah caranya: Untuk FOREX yang terhadap USDollar tersebut ada 2 macam jenis currency utama yaitu Direct dan Indirect

Contoh:

  • Direct : GBP/USD, EUR/USD, AUD/USD, dan lain-lain (pokoknya yang .../USD)

  • Indirect : USD/JPY, USD/CHF, dll ( USD/.... )

Dan untuk perhitungannya: Semisal kita memulai trading Forex ini dengan modal awal sebesar US$5000 (account regular), kemudian cara hitungan transaksi kita adalah:

Untuk mata uang Direct: misal kita trading di jenis account regular Forex yang kemudian kita inputkan quantity contract sizenya = US$100,000 dan kita melakukan Buy di EUR/USD di posisi 1.2000 dan kemudian di close Sell (take profit) di posisi 1.2010, maka kita akan profit sebesar: (1.2010 - 1.2000 ) x 100000 = $100 (profit) atau sebaliknya kalau loss juga sama hitungannya.

Untuk mata uang Indirect: misal kita trading di jenis account regular Forex yang kemudian kita inputkan quantity contract sizenya = US$100,000 dan kita melakukan Sell di USD/JPY di posisi 110.10 dan kemudian di close Buy (take profit) di posisi 110.00, maka kita akan profit sebesar: (110.10 - 110.00 ) x 100000) / posisi liquid 110.00 = $90.91 (profit) atau sebaliknya kalau loss juga sama hitungannya.

Arti Pergerakan Grafik


Jenis Mata Uang: Direct (..... / USD) Pergerakan Grafik: Naik Arti (..... terhadap USDollar): Menguat

index saham melemah


Jenis Mata Uang: Direct (..... / USD) Pergerakan Grafik: Turun Arti (..... terhadap USDollar): Melemah

index saham menurun


Jenis Mata Uang: Indirect (USD/ .....)
Pergerakan Grafik: Naik
Arti (..... terhadap USDollar): Melemah

Jenis Mata Uang: Indirect (USD/ .....)
Pergerakan Grafik: Turun
Arti (..... terhadap USDollar): Menguat

Berapakah modal yang dibutuhkan untuk bisa trading FOREX?
Deposit minimum yang bisa anda masukkan adalah $1, namun begitu tidak ada keharusan untuk deposit uang sejumlah tertentu agar bisa memulai live trading (Modal BEBAS), dan bila anda tidak mempunyai modal sama sekali tetapi masih ingin mencoba, maka anda akan diberikan secara cuma-cuma extra modal sebesar US$5 ketika membuka account (GRATIS dan bukan simulasi), dan profit yang anda dapat juga akan masuk ke kantong (account) anda secara penuh, sedangkan kalau loss maka anda juga tidak beresiko apa-apa. Anda juga bisa membuka Real Live Trading jenis Mini Forex dengan modal deposit awal yang dianjurkan sebesar US$500 ataupun Regular Forex dengan modal deposit awal sebesar US$5000.

Modal dan Maximum Quantity Leverage (Contract Size) yang dianjurkan:

Modal: $5
Contract Size: $100
Nilai pergerakan point (/pips): $0.01 (eq: EUR/USD)

Modal: $100
Contract Size: $2,000
Nilai pergerakan point (/pips): $0.2 (eq: EUR/USD)

Modal: $500 (mini)
Contract Size: $10,000
Nilai pergerakan point (/pips): $1 (eq: EUR/USD)

Contoh:
Kita bisa menginput Quantity Contract Size=$1001 atau $2123 atau $10, dll. Dalam arti lain yaitu kita bisa menyesuaikan dengan kondisi kekuatan modal kita.

Bagaimana cara bertransaksinya dan dimana?

Forex Trade Review

Last Friday, Non-Farm Payrolls is out. This is like fuel for Usd and it effect all pair especially eur/usd and gbp/usd. Last friday the report came out a mixed bag. People are confused and the price swing up and down. I was on the losing side of the trade but because of the swing at certain point I was 30 pips up but because Marketiva usually lock out during news hour, I finally end up at a lost. Well its forex anyway. If you dont lose in forex you dont feel the thrill.

Anyway Im going to review few pairs. Maybe some of you can find a trade from my review. As for me I am currently out of the market waiting for it to come to sense. Currently all pairs are at extreme oversold or overbought.

Eur/Usd
Currently at 1.2532 after a drop of almost 200 pips. Currently its on a thin downtrend with a possible target of 1.2450. For those of you who are already on a short position, you may hold the position with trailing stop loss of your choice. For me I will only consider an entry at 1.2450, that will depend on the strength of the momentum.

Gbp/Usd
Currently at 1.8540 and just like eur/usd it drop like a rock during NFP report out. Possible target is 1.8200. Looks like a retrace coming soon. Just watch the trend and momentum for possible entry. I will be looking at this one.

Usd/Cad
Currently at 1.1330. My last signal manage to get me 30 pips. Too small for the effort. Currently going up with possible target of 1.1450. Overshot all indicators. Possible retrace at 1.1360. I will be watching this one.

This is my review. Its not a trade recommendation. Be very carefull on your trade coz forex is a risky market. If you are not sure better stay out until the market make some sense. Happy trading.

Learn Online Forex Trading - Non Farm Payroll (NFP)

Learn Online Forex Trading - Tomorrow's NFP (Non farm Payroll) declarationHello everyone..Tomorrow is NFP (Non Farm Payroll) declaration which as I explained earlier is one of the most volatile fundamental announcments..A typical NFP declaration moves all the USD based currency pair in the range of 90 to 150 pips in just a matter on 1 min.So, my suggestion will be to close all the trades by 7 AM
USD/CAD
usd/cad is currently at 1.1270 with a high of 1.1305. Looking at the chart, it has lost its momentum eventhough the uptrend is still intact. It may hover around 1.1240 - 1.1310 for a while.
Possible Trade:
Short usd/cad @ 1.1300 or better.
Target: 1.1180, 1.11201, 1.1080.
Caution:
If usd/cad overshoot 1.1315, then its possible that it will go long. This is because usd/cad is currently going uptrend. It will be constantly making new high.

555 Forex Trading System

FOREX TRADING SYSTEM
This forex trading system is part of my full forex trading system. I post it just to help out new traders to develop their own trading system. This forex system can be use on all pairs. It is far from perfect but can give you an idea how to trade and develop your own forex trading system. Maybe in the future if you manage to improve this system you may want to share with me. Anyway here it goes.

Time Frame : 4 hours
MA's : SMA5 or SMA8 which ever suits you better, SMA55
TSF : Period=55
Bollinger Band : MA=simple, Period=55, Multiple=2.0
Stochastic Slow : Period = 10,3,3, simple, simple
Stochastic Fast : Period = 13,3 Exponential

FOREX CHARTS


For the 1st chart I use usd/jpy pair for 4 hour timeframe. Remember this forex system is designed for 4 hour time frame but can be use on all pairs. In this forex system, MA8 (Red) and TSF55 (Blue) is the indicator for long or short trade. When the red is above blue = long and vice versa. BB55 and SMA55 is the target. Both the stochastic is for confirmation on trade position.

When price is at BB55 either at the top or bottom and both stochastic is showing extreme value, it may signal a reversal. A confirm reversal is when price broke the red and blue line. The price itself is the ultimate indicator. Once the price broke the 2 lines, find the best possible entry. Normally the best entry is when the price is at the blue line. If after you enter the trade, and the price gain momentum in your favour just let it run and ride it till its finish.

Below is the explaination for the above chart

  1. Price spike out of BB55. As mentioned before, BB55 acts as targets. In this case usd/jpy already reach its target based on this system but the momentum is still strong based on distance of Red and Blue line.
  2. Price spike out of BB55 again but this time the price close below the Red line. This indicates the momentum is dead and a reversal coming soon.
  3. Ideal entry. Red below Blue line indicates a short position. Price is at the Blue line. Short now and let it run until it meet BB55 at the bottom
  4. Price went through BB55 and then goes flat at this point. It is making its way back into BB55 and a flat Red line indicating the momentum is dead and a reversal is coming soon. At this point the entry for long position is the lowest price inside BB55.
  5. Price spike out of BB55 but cannot make new high. This is where I exit and enter a new short position. Let it run until the momentum is dead.

If you look at point 1,2,3 and 5. All are high point and all of them is higher than the previous high. This is and indication that usd/jpy is actually going up but as forex moves in waves we sometimes get lost and fail to see the big picture. In this case what ever you do, follow the trend and always remember that the big picture is usd/jpy is going uptrend. Be prepare if the market suddenly shoot up. Remember always use stop loss properly. Forex is a risky market, do manage your risk properly.

Marketiva Scam????

Read some very interesting review on marketiva. It seems that some people classified Marketiva as scam. I dont mind since im still using their $5. To me marketiva is a learning platform. Btw one review for you to read:

"I would not trust any company with no background info. I had asked to see who or what is behind the company before depositing funds. No response. I believe there is some type of long term scam here. Something is not right compared to other brokers. Also it is a bit strange that you can open an acct. with no I.D. Last but not least, beware the glowing reviews of Marketiva spread out on forums. Most if not all of these posts are made by actual Marketiva admins posing fraudulently as investors. You can easily pick them out. They are the ones using obvious marketing slogans and pushing the free $5 for joining. The $5 is just a ploy to sucker in the new trader.The rest of the posts are from those promoting their referral links.I'm of the opinion that Marketiva is a total bucket shop. Like a ponzi, the money from losers lines the pockets of Marketiva and helps pay the few that make a profit. I seriously doubt any investor's money actually makes it onto the market. 95% of traders lose on average. This makes for a profitable business model especially when the investor is essentially trading on a demo account with real money. They know you are very likely to lose, so your money goes into the bucket and you are left blaming a bad market when you lose when in fact, your money never even made it there.Ok, thats enough ranting. Beware Marketiva and do your own research and due diligence checks on any broker you wish to join.Best of luck out there!"

Trend, Momentum and Timing

When doing technical analysis on forex. There are 3 factors that need to be properly recognise and use. They are trend, momentum and timing.

Trend
Trend is the tendency of movement to a particular direction. When it is uptrend, the price will move up and vice versa.

Momentum.
Momentum is the strength of movement. The stronger the momentum the stronger the move. When the momentum is finished, it will reverse.

Timing
Timing is when u enter the market. Enter only when the profit to risk ratio is good. Other than that better stay out.

Marketiva Corporation (http://www.marketiva.com/). Marketiva is a foreign exchange (forex) dealer where people can start trading with as little as $1 and learn how to successfully participate in the largest financial market in the world.

We shall provide in this article an overview of the colorful history of the foreign exchange market. The foreign exchange market as we know it today is the sheer outgrowth of the flexible exchange rate regime, which was officially mandated by the International Monetary Fund, IMF for short, in 1978.The shift from a fixed to a flexible or floating exchange rate system was adopted in consequence of the failure of previously implemented international monetary systems, specifically, the Gold Exchange Standard, the Bretton Woods Accord, and the Smithsonian Agreement, to sustain international economic stability.

THE GOLD EXCHANGE STANDARD

The predominant international monetary system until 1944. Under this system, currencies were pegged to the price of gold, and a nation's economy would incur sharp cyclical periods of economic booms and busts. For instance, when a nation's economy was strong, its imports would increase until the gold reserves were depleted because a nation had to redeem its notes in gold. Money supply would drop in turn since the value of its currency was a function of its reserves of gold. In addition, interest rates would soar high, leading to an economic recession and less demand for money, meaning borrowers find it costly to borrow funds from lending institutions. The prices of that nation's exports would eventually become attractive to foreigners who would
ultimately engage in a buying frenzy of its export goods. This demand for that country's exports would inject more gold reserves into the nation's economy and lead to an economic expansion. This monetary system was superseded by the Bretton Woods system as it failed to maintain international economic order.

BRETTON WOODS ACCORD

In 1944, The United Nations Monetary Fund convened in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire in the United States with delegates from the United States, Britain, and France to set up rules and institutions to regulate the international monetary system. The International Monetary Fund was founded and became fully operational a few years later. National currencies were fixed to the US dollar and the US dollar was also pegged to gold at 35 dollars per ounce. The US dollar became the benchmark and the reserve currency for major economies since the United States was the only nation which was not scarred by war. The British economy was destroyed and many counterfeits of the British Pound were being circulated by Nazi Germany. Hence, the British Pound could no longer serve as a reserve currency to which other currencies could be compared.

Under the Bretton Woods system, currencies were allowed to fluctuate one percentage point from a fixed or par value and an equivalent rate in terms of the price of gold. In addition, the goal of the Bretton Woods conference was to prevent cross border money flight and restrain speculative demands for a currency. Also, countries were not allowed to devalue their currencies by less than 10 percent in order to stimulate demand for their exports. The Bretton Woods accord collapsed in 1973 as a result of substantial movements of capital during the post-war reconstruction period, which led to destabilization of currency rates and economic crises in several nations. There are several theories which account for the collapse of the Bretton Woods system, namely, marginal tax rates, budget deficit, and the government expenditure on the Vietnam War.

SMITHSONIAN AGREEMENT

An adjustment to the Bretton Woods Agreement, which was signed by member countries of the GROUP OF TEN at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C in USA in 1971. This accord included the adoption wider floating ceilings and floors of plus or minus 2.25 percent of a fixed or par value. Furthermore, member countries appreciated their currencies vis-a-vis the US dollar. On August 1971, the US dollar was devalued and the United States abandoned the system of convertibility of the US dollar into gold. The value of gold was also increased to 38 dollars an ounce, which meant a devaluation of the US dollar. The price of gold reached even higher prices a few years later.
The US dollar was over-valued in 1970 owing to excessive government spending on the Vietnam War and a high inflation rate. This monetary system was doomed to crash as it failed to preserve order in international trade.

FREE FLOATING EXCHANGE RATES

During that time, another regional monetary system was implemented in Europe, namely, The European Monetary System, which was created in 1978. European currencies were pegged to one another, mainly the ones showing strength, in an attempt to gain independence from the US dollar. However, the EMS failed as well when the Bank of England failed to stabilize its currency, which was subjected to downward pressure from private speculators, and England withdrew from the EMS. The Forex Market deregulation was deemed to be a necessity at best seeing that the International Monetary Fund mandated its application in 1978. A currency may be traded by anyone, and its value is a function of the forces of supply and demand.

Increased volatility of currency rates continued to prevail on the Forex market with the advent of free trade agreements, new financial instruments and technological advances in the eighties, such as the personal computer. The Forex market became so large that even governments cannot control exchange rates anymore as a significant size of transactions is in the hand of private traders. It is estimated that the daily turnover of the foreign exchange market reaches more than 2 trillion dollars. The year 1998 marks the start of online retail Forex trading and currencies can be bought and sold by any individual investor.

UNDERSTANDING FOREX

If New York is considered to be the largest center of equity trading, it only ranks second to London, which is considered to be the most active trading session in the Forex universe in terms of volumes. When the US and European session overlap, volume reaches the highest levels. Forex travels with the sun around the world. Trading begins in New Zealand, and then moves to Sydney, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, Frankfurt, London, and New York. Forex is a seamless 24 hour market and hence it is free of market opening and closing gaps unlike the equities markets. Currency traders are must continuously monitor countries news and events related to currency pairs they trade.

For example, an investor trading the pair EUR/USD should constantly examine the latest news and events relating to the macroeconomic performance of both the Euro zone and the US. Currency traders can react to news and events around the world and make informed decisions based on the latest news before decidinh which positions to take.

The Forex daily turnover exceeds 2 trillion dollars, which means that the Forex can dwarf all the equities markets combined together. The Forex is an over the counter market, or OTC market for short, meaning that trading Forex is not centralized on a single exchange; rather trading is conducted via computer terminals at major banks and dealer/broker houses, a reason for which the Forex is sometimes referred to as the inter-bank system.

Forex is a true network of dealers (banks and market makers) each quoting their bid and offer (ask) rates. Bid is the price at which a dealer is willing to buy the base currency, and ask, or offer, is the price at which a foreign exchange dealer is willing to sell a base Currency. There are Forex dealers in every time zone and in every financial center in the world. Dealers make profits from their spreads, or the difference between bid and offer rates. Market participants in the Forex include institutional and individual investors. Corporations with international operations trade the Forex to hedge currency fluctuations risk. The US Federal Reserve System and other countries central banks participate in the Forex through their monetary policies by increasing or decreasing interest rates, which in turn has an impact on the money supply in their countries. Central banks also engage in the buying and selling of foreign reserves to guard against severe fluctuations in their currencies and to stabilize their macroeconomic performance. International banks, hedge funds, large commodity trading advisors (CTAs), and private traders play the Forex as well.

It is estimated that 95 percent of Forex transactions are speculative in nature and only 5 percent represent hedging activities against currency rates fluctuations. Major currencies are the most commonly traded currencies in the Forex and they account for nearly 85 percent of total volume. Potential for making profits exists 24 hours a day as one currency of each pair is gaining and the other is losing. Currencies are traded in lots, or quantities. Leverage makes the Forex market an attractive investment vehicle as traders can control larger funds than they can actually afford. For instance, the minimal required investment amount in the equities markets is 25000 dollars. Marketiva offers a 1:100 leverage, which means that an investor can control a quantity 100 times larger than his investment. Leverage does play a role of amplifying profits and losses but does not make Forex any riskier than any other financial market as the risk to reward ratio is only 1 percent. Currency traders geared with appropriate money management skills, knowledge of the basics of technical analysis and fundamental analysis stand to make profits in the Forex market. Forex investors must be big picture individuals and information is available to enable them to react to events on time.

It is estimated that more than 95 percent of currency traders have no prior knowledge of the aforementioned methodologies of analyzing the market and hence experience major draw downs in their equities. The Forex market is the most liquid market and traders can enter and exit trades with ease. There are always buyers and sellers of a currency pair and a currency trader would never have to worry about finding a buyer or a seller of his pair because there is no market interest.

Again, we suggest you to trade with virtual money for as long as possible, before trading your own funds. We will continue this practice of sending educational e-mails in order to help you obtain further knowledge about the foreign exchange market.

What is a Pip?

The most common increment of currencies is the Pip. If the EUR/USD moves from 1.2250 to 1.2251, that is ONE PIP. A pip is the last decimal place of a quotation. The Pip is how you measure your profit or loss.

As each currency has its own value, it is necessary to calculate the value of a pip for that particular currency. In currencies where the US Dollar is quoted first, the calculation would be as follows.

Let’s take USD/JPY rate at 119.80 (notice this currency pair only goes to two decimal places, most of the other currencies have four decimal places)

In the case of USD/JPY, 1 pip would be .01

Therefore,

USD/JPY:

119.80
.01 divided by exchange rate = pip value
.01 / 119.80 = 0.0000834

This looks like a very long number but later we will discuss lot size.

USD/CHF:

1.5250
.0001 divided by exchange rate = pip value
.0001 / 1.5250 = 0.0000655

USD/CAD:

1.4890
.0001 divided by exchange rate = pip value
.0001 / 1.4890 = 0.00006715

In the case where the US Dollar is not quoted first and we want to get the US Dollar value, we have to add one more step.

EUR/USD:

1.2200

.0001 divided by exchange rate = pip value
so
.0001 / 1.2200 = EUR 0.0008196

but we need to get back to US dollars so we add another calculation which is

EUR x Exchange rate
So
0.0008196 x 1.2200 = 0.00009999

When rounded up it would be 0.0001

GBP/USD:

1.7975

.0001 divided by exchange rate = pip value
So

.0001 / 1.7975 = GBP 0.0000556

But we need to get back to US dollars so we add another calculation which is

GBP x Exchange rate

So
0.0000556 x 1.7975 = 0.0000998

When rounded up it would be 0.0001

You’re probably rolling your eyes back and thinking do I really need to work all this out and the answer is no. Nearly all forex brokers will work all this out for you automatically. It’s always good for you to know how they work it out.

How To Make Money Trading Forex

In the foreign exchange market, you buy or sell currencies. Placing a trade in the foreign exchange market is simple: the mechanics of a trade are very similar to those found in other markets (like the stock market), so if you have any experience in trading, you should be able to pick it up pretty quickly.

The object of forex trading is to exchange one currency for another in the expectation that the price will change so that the currency you bought will increase in value compared to the one you sold.

How to Read Forex Quote

Currencies are always quoted in pairs, such as EUR/USD or USD/CHF. The reason they are quoted in pairs is because in every foreign exchange transaction you are simultanesouly buying one currency and selling another. Here is an example of a foreign exchange rate of the British pound versus the U.S. dollar:

GBP/USD = 1.7500

The currency to the left of the slash ("/") is called the base currency (in this example, the British pound) and the one on the right is called the quote currency or counter currency (in this example, the U.S. dollar).

When buying, the exchange rate tells you how much you have to pay in units of the quote currency to buy one unit of the base currency. In the example above, you have to pay 1.7500 U.S. dollar to buy 1 British pound.

When selling, the exchange rate tells you how many units of the quote currency you get for selling one of the basis currency. In the example above, you will receive 1.7500 U.S. dollar when you sell 1 British pound.

The base currency is the “basis” for the buy or the sell. If you buy EUR/USD this simply means that you are buying the base currency and simultaneously selling the quote currency.

You would buy the pair if you belive the base currency will appreciate relative to the quote currency. You would sell the pair if you think the base currency will depreciate relative to the count currency.

Long/Short

First, you should determine whether you want to buy or sell.

If you want to buy (which actually means buy the base currency and sell the quote currency), you want the base currency to rise in value and then you would sell it back at a higher price. In trader's talk, this is called "going long" or taking a "long position". Just remember: long = buy.

If you want to sell (which actually means sell the base currency and buy the quote currency), you want the base currency to fall in value and then you would buy it back at a lower price. This is called "going short" or taking a "short position". Short = sell.

Bid/Ask Spread

All Forex quotes include a two-way price, the bid and ask. The bid is always lower than the ask price.

The bid is the price in which the dealer is willing to buy the base currency in exchange for the quote currency. This means the bid is the price in which you the trader will sell.

The ask is the price at which the dealer will sell the base currency in exchange for the quote currency. This means the ask is the price in which you the trader will buy.

The difference between the bid and the ask price is popularly know as the spread.

Let's take a look at an example taken from a trading software:

On this EUR/USD quote, the bid price is 1.2293 and the ask price is 1.2296. Look at how this broker makes it so easy for you to trade away your money. If you want to sell EUR, you click "Sell" and you will sell Euros at 1.2293. If you want to buy EUR, you click "Buy" and you will buy Euros at 1.2296.

In the following examples, I am going to use fundamental analysis to help us decide whether to buy or sell a specific currency pair. If you always fell asleep during your economics class or just flat out skipped economics class, don’t worry, we will cover fundamental analysis in a later lesson. For right now, try to pretend you know what’s going on.

EUR/USD
In this example euro is the base currency and thus the “basis” for the buy/sell.

If you believe that the US economy will continue to weaken, which is bad for the US dollar, you would execute a BUY EUR/USD order. By doing so you have bought euros in the expectation that they will rise versus the US dollar. If you believe that the US economy is strong and the euro will weaken against the US dollar you would execute a SELL EUR/USD order. By doing so you have sold euros in the expectation that they will fall versus the US dollar.

USD/JPY
In this example the US dollar is the base currency and thus the “basis” for the buy/sell.

If you think that the Japanese government is going to weaken the Yen in order to help its export industry, you would execute a BUY USD/JPY order. By doing so you have bought U.S dollars in the expectation that they will rise versus the Japanese yen. If you believe that Japanese investors are pulling money out of U.S. financial markets and coverting all their U.S. dollars back to Yen, and this will hurt the US dollar, you would execute a SELL USD/JPY order. By doing so you have sold U.S dollars in the expectation that they will depreciate against the Japanese yen.

GBP/USD
In this example the GBP is the base currency and thus the “basis” for the buy/sell.

If you think the British economy will continue to do better than the United States in terms of growth, you would execute a BUY GBP/USD order. By doing so you have bought pounds in the expectation that they will rise versus the US dollar. If you believe the British's economy is slowing while the United State's economy remains vibrant, you would execute a SELL GBP/USD order. By doing so you have sold pounds in the expectation that they will depreciate against the US dollar.

USD/CHF
In this example the USD is the base currency and thus the “basis” for the buy/sell.

If you think the Swiss franc is overvalued, you would execute a BUY USD/CHF order. By doing so you have bought US dollars in the expectation that they will appreciate versus the Swiss Franc. If you believe that due to instability in Iraq and in U.S. financial markets the dollar will continue to weaken, you would execute a SELL USD/CHF order. By doing so you have sold US dollars in the expectation that they will depreciate against the Swiss franc.

I don't have enough money to buy $10,000 EUR. Can I still trade?

You can with margin trading! Margin trading is simply the term used for trading with borrowed capital. This is how you're able to open $10,000 or $100,000 positions with $50 or $1,000. You can conduct relatively large transactions, very quickly and cheaply, with a small amount of initial capital.

Margin trading in the foreign exchange market is quantified in lots. We will be discussing "lots' more in-depth on our next lesson. For now, just think of the term "lot" as the minimun amount of currencies you have to buy. When you go to the grocery store and want to buy an egg, you can't just buy a single egg, they come in dozens or "lots" of 12. In Forex, it'd be foolish to buy or sell $1 EUR, they usually come in "lots" of $10,000 or $100,000 depending on the type of account you have.

For Example:
You believe that signals in the market are indicating that the British Pound will go up against the US Dollar. You open 1 lot ($100,000) for buying the Pound with a 1% margin at the price of 1.5000 and wait for the exchange rate to climb. This means you now control $100,000 worth of British Pound with $1,000. Your predictions come true and you decide to sell. You close the position at 1.5050. You earn 50 pips or about $500. (A pip is the smallest price movement available in a currency). So for an initial capital investment of $1,000, you have made 50% return. Return equals your $500 profit divided by your $1,000 you risked to trade.

Your Actions GBP USD Your Money
You buy 100,000 pounds at the GBP/USD exchange rate of 1.5000 +100,000 -150,000 $1,000
You blink for two seconds and the GBP/USD exchange rate rises to 1.5050 and you sell. -100,000 +150,500** $1,500
You have earned a profit of $500. 0 +500

When you decide to close a position, the deposit that you originally made is returned to you and a calculation of your profits or losses is done. This profit or loss is then credited to your account.

We will also be discussing margin more in-depth in the next lesson, but hopefully you're able to get a basic idea of how margin works.


Rollover

No, this is not the same as rollover minutes from your cell phone carrier. For positions open at 5pm EST, there is a daily rollover interest rate that a trader either pays or earns, depending on your established margin and position in the market. If you do not want to earn or pay interest on your positions, simply make sure it is closed at 5pm EST, the established end of the market day.

Since every currency trade involves borrowing one currency to buy another, interest rollover charges are an inherent part of FX trading. Interest is paid on the currency that is borrowed, and earned on the one that is purchased. If a client is buying a currency with a higher interest rate than the one he/she is borrowing, the net differential will be positive (i.e. USD/JPY) – and the client will earn funds as a result. Ask your broker about specific details regarding rollover.


Foreign Exchange (FOREX) is the arena where a nation's currency is exchanged for that of another. The foreign exchange market is the largest financial market in the world, with the equivalent of over $1.9 trillion changing hands daily; more than three times the aggregate amount of the US Equity and Treasury markets combined. Unlike other financial markets, the Forex market has no physical location and no central exchange. It operates through a global network of banks, corporations and individuals trading one currency for another. The lack of a physical exchange enables the Forex market to operate on a 24-hour basis, spanning from one zone to another in all the major financial centers.

Emotional Rescue

Did you know that 90% of all Forex traders lose money? Now I bet you are questioning my zeal for trading the spot Forex market! If you are just starting out trading this market this not a very good omen. How do you ensure that you become the 10% that succeed, especially if given the fact that so many traders are willing to part with their hard earned cash?

There are many reasons for these abysmal stats: lack of discipline, lack of money management skills, and the. I think the reason for the poor success rate is that 90% of the traders can’t manage their emotions while trading. This is the demon I fight daily. Money management and discipline are the symptoms, but emotions are the root cause!

From day one of trading the currency markets I have heard every guru shouting at the top of their lungs to cut you r loses and let your profits run. Or that anyone can put on a trade, but it is the professional trader that knows when to exit a trade. It seems like a simple concept to let your profits run and take those profits when the market offers them up to us. But why can’t we get this right?

Emotions!!

The curse of all traders, the last and most difficult skill for us to overcome is to remove the emotions from our trading. Period!! Well I got news for you… you can’!! You, my friend, are a human being and thus an emotional being. OK, so we must trade emotional-less, but that is beyond the realm of most traders.

Letting emotions interfere with your trading can manifest in many ways. Let me just give you some examples of my past (and sometimes present transgressions):

  • Taking a loss and angrily reversing my position only to have the market resume in my original direction! The infamous revenge trading!
  • Listening to trade signals from members of my trading group instead of listening to my own signals and intuition (afraid I was going to miss the proverbial boat!).


  • And my personal favorite…
    Having the market retrace and return almost to my original entry point, exiting and having the market execute a classic continuation pattern to original target (a target that was selected in advance before the trade was executed)!


  • What do we do?


    I have been following traders that focus solely on trading the news or other fundamental factors. Although this has some merit it won’t do squat for checking your emotions. Technical analysis should be your weapon of choice for keeping your emotions in check. Do you analysis before your trading session. Follow your trading plan (money management and strategy) as though your life depended upon it (your account balance certainly does!!). Visualize your trade execution like Tiger Woods does before every golf shot and above all, trust yourself! I repeat the following mantra before every trading session:


    “I am the world’s most disciplined forex trader. I trade my plan and I plan my trade. I trade with confidence and decisiveness. If the reason for me to be in a trade no longer exists I will cut my losses or take profit without hesitation.”


    I am an emotional person. It makes me feel alive, however when I trade I want to be a stone-cold, calculating pip capturing fool and leave the emotions for when I shank a drive into the water at the golf course.

    Happy Trading!!

    BTW, did you see Tiger Woods at the press conference after winning the PGA Championship? A reporter asked him if he expects to win every major he plays. Without hesitation Tiger said “yes.” There was an awkward silence while Tiger waited for the next question and the reporter waited for Tiger to expand upon his answer. I loved it and want us all to trade with the kind of confidence and discipline Tiger Woods displays while playing golf!

    Learn Online Forex Trading - These fundamental announcements move the market the mostHello everyone...I came across this very interesting and very useful article which lists which fundamental announcements moves the forex trading market the most and how many pips does it move.So, definitly it will tell you when is the market expected to be most volatile for online forex trading. I have added this

    Seriously

    If you have been following my blog you know that I am a big proponent of setting up a compounding account as a wealth building strategy for those of you new to the Forex market. This compounding account is not to be touched until you can meet your financial need with only withdrawing 50% of your profit without changing your risk profile. You can have your “Mad Money” account to satisfy some of your more exotic Forex desires, but having a compounding account where you are depositing a consistent number pips is critical to your long term viability as a individual currency trader.

    So why is this so critical? Now that you are a trained trader you have probably realized that your Forex Journey has only just begun. You have discovered that there are numerous strategies and approaches to trading this market. You have also noticed that in the end most of the strategies are viable and that the most volatile factor in any trade is the human interaction in the marketplace itself. I am sure, like me, you have discovered you are your own worst enemy! Having a compounding account ensures that you are trading from a centered base. Your pip goal is reserved and very attainable and your entry and exit strategies will reflect this conservative approach. Trading this account will also build discipline and allow you to avoid those huge draw downs. In this account you are not the gambler, but the casino. When was the last time you heard of a casino losing money on their gaming operations? You rely on a strategy to meet your daily pip goal (at least 3:1) and through money management you are keeping the long term odds in your favor like a casino operator. Your actions will then dictate your profitable results!

    Do the math! See what your results would be if you started with a $3,000 mini account, risk no more that 5% on any given trade and made just 15 pips per day. How much will your balance be at the end of a year of trading? The results will astound you!!

    Happy Trading!!

    Make Forex Education Your Top Priority

    I have been doing a ton of reading this summer. This is not atypical for me. Reading is a way to continue my education and renew my focus on the task at hand. I have recently been exposed to several Forex training evaluation sites, as well attended some of those FREE Forex workshops you see on TV (some of them are still calling me!). It got me thinking

    … “What advice can I provide to all those who are eager to learn the currency market with all that information out there without getting burned?”

    I have come up with 3 Golden Rules to follow when evaluating currency training opportunities.


    1. Know Thy Self – This is probably the most important advice I can provide. There is good training and bad training. Often the worst training has the best marketing plans. First figure out how you best learn information. Are you the type of person that can read a manual on rocket science and build a spaceship or are you a person that needs to be shown things through personal instruction and repetition? Figure out how you receive and process information and align Forex training source that fits your method of learning.


    2. Don’t Believe the Hype – There is no golden system and it will take considerable effort to trade currencies successfully. Accepting these realities before embarking on your Forex Journey can save you tons of money and more importantly time spent climbing up the learning curve! If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. This should be no surprise! It is buyers beware market out there. Look for a Forex education company that can provide you with some solid aftercare resources.


    3. Be Realistic – It is a journey and all good journeys take time to develop and flourish. This can be a remarkable journey, but one where you are apt to lose your account a few times before you surrender to the market and learn to take what the market is offering for profits that day. Listen to recommendations, but make decisions based on your own criteria, because in the Forex market this skill will serve you well!!

    When reading internet-based sales letters or infomercial or forums, just remember that everyone has an opinion, but in the end the only one that matters is your!!

    Happy Trading!!

    Ada beberapa kelebihan yang ditawarkan forex trading yang tidak dapat ditawarkan investasi lainnya.

    Pertanyaan sederhana yang seringkali dilontarkan para investor baru sebelum memulai investasinya di forex trading adalah: Kenapa saya harus berinvestasi di forex? Apa kelebihan forex dibandingkan dengan investasi lainnya?

    Artikel ini ada untuk menjawab pertanyaan diatas. Berikut beberapa kelebihan yang ditawarkan forex trading yang tidak dapat ditawarkan investasi lainnya:
    1. Return on Investment tertinggi dibanding investasi lainnya. Adakah investasi yang sanggup menawarkan return hingga tak terbatas? Forex dapat melakukannya!
    2. Likuiditas yang tinggi. Ini berarti Anda selalu dapat membeli atau menjual mata uang yang hendak Anda transaksikan dan tidak ada istilah gagal serah disini. Ketika Anda melakukan aksi beli, selalu ada pihak lain yang akan menjualnya kepada Anda dan sebaliknya. Ini terjadi karena memang lingkup investasi forex adalah bursa dunia yang saling terhubung satu sama lain. Berbeda dengan bursa lokal (ex: BEJ) dimana transaksi hanya berlangsung pada bursa tersebut saja sehingga dapat terjadi peristiwa gagal serah.
    3. Modal yang dibutuhkan relatif kecil. Memang dahulu modal yang dibutuhkan bisa sangat besar (mencapai 100 Juta). Tapi kini dengan AsiaFxOnline dari PT AKKB, modal yang dibutuhkan hanya Rp 5 juta saja. Kalau di Marketiva anda tidak perlu menyetorkan sejumlah uang untuk mulai trading forex, cukup isi form registrasi maka anda akan dapat modal $5 real dan $10000 virtual. Bandingkan dengan investasi lain misalnya saham yang membutuhkan modal setidaknya Rp 20 Juta atau investasi sektor riil yang biasanya lebih dari Rp 50 Juta.
    4. Jam trading 24 jam sehari dan 5 hari seminggu. Tidak ada kata malam atau siang hari dalam dunia forex trading. Pasar berlangsung selama 24 jam sehari dimulai dari pasar Asia hingga pasar Eropa dan Amerika. Bandingkan dengan Saham yang hanya buka pada office hours atau pasar komoditi yang hanya buka pagi hingga siang hari. Jika Anda seorang pekerja kantoran, Anda dapat bertransaksi forex trading pada malam hari dan tidak mengganggu jam kerja Anda.
    5. Dimana saja, kapan saja dan siapa saja bisa bergabung. Betul, investasi tidak mengenal kasta. Begitu juga dengan forex trading. Siapa pun Anda, pedagang, pekerja, seorang ibu rumah tangga atau bahkan seorang petani sekali pun dapat bergabung. Dan lebih hebatnya lagi dengan kemajuan dunia internet, Anda dapat bertrading dimana saja tanpa harus pergi ke bursa yang bersangkutan atau menelepon dealer Anda secara langsung. Ini jelas menghemat waktu dan biaya Anda!
    6. Investor bertindak aktif dalam investasinya. Tidak seperti investasi lain dimana investor hanya dapat mempercayakan dananya dikelola pihak ketiga (reksadana, asuransi, deposito, dsb), pada forex trading Andalah yang menentukan sendiri kapan dan seberapa besar Anda hendak berinvestasi dengan melakukan aksi beli atau jual. Kini investasi Anda bergantung pada diri Anda sendiri dan tidak kepada orang lain.
    7. Harga real time yang dapat Anda akses setiap saat secara cuma-cuma. Kami rasa ini sudah cukup, tidak perlu dijelaskan kembali. Semuanya gratis.
    8. Tersedia demo account yang dapat Anda miliki secara gratis tanpa membayar sepesr pun! Jika Anda orang baru dalam dunia forex, ini akan sangat membantu Anda karena harga yang tertera pada demo account adalah sama dengan harga yang sesungguhnya terjadi di pasar.
    9. Leverage yang ditawarkan 1:100. Ini artinya dengan satu bagian yang Anda keluarkan, Anda dapat membeli atau menjual sebanyak 100 bagian. Inilah kelebihan dari margin trading dimana yang dibutuhkan hanyalah jaminan saja untuk membeli atau menjual barang yang dibutuhkan. Pada forex trading ini diimplementasikan dengan modal sebesar 1 Juta Rupiah ($100) maka Anda dapat membeli Dollar sebanyak $10.000 dan juga sebaliknya untuk aksi jualnya. Itulah sebabnya margin yang dibutuhkan per lotnya pada AsiaFxOnline dipatok Rp 1 Juta.
    10. Online reporting and transaction. Memang dahulu forex trading dilakukan melalui telepon dan laporan tertulis hasil transaksi Anda akan dikirim melalui email atau bahkan pos setiap bulannya. Tetapi kini dengan akses internet, bahkan laporan transaksi Anda pun dapat Anda akses kapan pun Anda mau tanpa harus menunggu dari pihak pialang melaporkannya kepada Anda.
    11. Keamanan dan kerahasiaan terjamin. Meskipun transaksi dilakukan melalui internet bukan berarti kemanan dan kerahasiaan informasi serta dana Anda tidak dijamin. Pihak pialang menyediakan enskripsi data yang ditransaksikan dan dana Anda pun aman tersimpan pada segregated account apabila Anda melakukannya pada pialang yang legal.
    Jadi kini kami kembalikan kepada Anda untuk mempertimbangkannya secara obyektif dan menyesuaikannya dengan tujuan investasi Anda. Yang jelas, BelajarForex ada untuk membantu Anda memahami investasi satu ini dan memperoleh keuntungan maksimal darinya dengan menyediakan informasi selengkap dan sebaik mungkin.
