ForEx trading is pretty stable financial market and it provides options to acquire quite a lot of the money if you are cautious and well informed. Good instincts and appropriate temperament to go with them are always helpful. Still, it is all about the information. Who gets the right one in time and manages to put together the puzzle he will be making a lot of money. Other less quick will make less and those with wrong assessments will be losing money.
Those assessments are based upon several criteria. There are many factors which determine short term long term currency standings and it is pretty complex matter that isn’t too easy to comprehend. Overall economy of a country is important factor on both short term and long term plan. Natural resources are definitely stabilizing factor and countries which are abundant in those resources are mainly having overall stabile economy. These resources can always compensate for the lack of industry or for over indebting. Rich resources of oil, gold and some other metals and minerals are guarantee that there will be good enough to pay off all debts.
Strong industry is also one of the key factors. It can compensate for the lack of natural resources and it is the main motor of technological development. All these things guarantee that this country will have prosperous future and that they can compensate their lack of funds with selling their final products or technologies.
The countries with natural resources are prone to revolutions and military interventions. One such great example is Libya. They are abundant in oil and they suffered civil war and foreign intervention in last couple of years. Of course their currency dropped significantly. However, when the situation stabilizes and when they have stabile government again, their currency will worth pretty much because of that oil they have. So, this is the best example of long term tendencies. Similar positions have all countries with natural resources.
Russia is example how one currency can revive in relatively short period. During nineties they were in complete chaos and their currency didn’t worth much. Still, in last ten years or so they not only regained control over their economy but they managed to pay off all foreign debts. This is because Russia is the richest country in the world when it comes to natural resources, and they have technology to exploit them.
One of the best indicators how will certain currencies react on market changes are the reports of the auditory companies. These companies are determining credit rating of each country and that credit rating depicts the state of that country’s economy and future tendencies. For example, the euro suffered greatly when several auditory companies decreased credit rating of Italy, Spain and Greece. These countries are members of the Euro zone and that compensated the blow. If they had their own currency it would depreciate significantly.
These are some of the essential thing which should be considered when trading on ForEx financial market, but there is a lot more to it.
