Many men think that ForEx trading is gambling and they can’t be more wrong about it. This new market is one of the most complex financial markets in the world. It requires pretty large knowledge on economy and foreign policy. It also requires knowledge about politics and natural resources of various countries. But let us begin with the essential things.
First of all it is important to know one thing. This market isn’t much different from other financial markets. You can win big and lose big money here, so do not invest what you can’t afford to lose.
Rule number two is: get your information before you even think to try trading. Any uneducated guess goes down to a gambling and will eventually end in disaster. No one can have endless string of luck so it is better to get your data and develop proper strategy than to risk your money.
First thing to be taken in to consideration is credit rating of the country which currency is involved and the projections for the forthcoming period. These things define is the country too indebted and does it have the capacities to repay its debts. World’s largest auditory firms are issuing their reports on pretty regular basis so that is the good source of essential information.
Second thing that should be known is availability of strategic resources and political situation. Countries which aren’t plagued by corruption and which have significant natural resources will have strong currencies. Saudi Arabia is great example of such country. Their strong alliance with USA, abundance of oil and hereditary rule system give them stability, so their currency will maintain its average strength as long as oil keeps its price.
There are countries which are abundant in resources and have unstable government and these countries are ideal for scoring big. Libya is such example and all that happened in near past. Still, that was also the great opportunity to lose money, as it happened to certain people.
Next good idea is to focus on industrial capacities of the country. If the country has developed industry, it will drain its financial strength from it and their currency will be god investment. Japan is ideal example for that. Still, all those currencies interact once more amongst each other. For example, if the country is abundant with resources and has no industry, but it is in friendly relations with highly developed country which has the industry but not the resources, their currencies interact with each other as they trade a lot and any disturbances in any of those two will affect their currencies.
The examples go on and on and the possibilities are endless. The most important thing is not to forget about strategy and not to make rush movements. The decisions which aren’t thought over well usually lack the grounds in reality and are doomed to failure. Good idea would be to hire the broker as the counsellor until you get in to hang of this. Later on, it’s not at all scary.
