  1. Forex trading robots have become a popular tool in the personal forex market. They’re often attractively priced and marketed as ‘Expert Advisors’ that can operate on the best trading platforms. However, an increasing number of traders are not happy with the purchase of their automated forex trading program. Sold on profits Anybody with a product to sell will focus on the product’s most attractive features to get you to buy it. That is especially true about automated trading products. Often, they’re presented as offering the path to financial freedom and easy to use. In reality, the evidence of their success is just a small sample of trading when the software enjoyed a profitable spell. The disclaimer makes it alright Every forex trading robot is sold with a disclaimer that denies any responsibility for how it will perform in the future. The words may be different each time, but the message always amounts to the same thing. There’s no guarantee this software will trade profitably based on its historical performance and protects the seller from potential fraud claims For More Detail : Avoid the pitfalls of forex trading robots
  2. General Electric has undergone major restructuring and changes in senior management which has sent its share price down, but some analysts feel this is the right time to make a long-term investment Many analysts expect General Electric (GE) to exceed profit expectations when they post their Q3 earnings report on October 20. After all, it has done in eight of the last nine quarters. However, there is also an expectation that its share price will fall as it has done following the release of the last seven earnings results. Fears over a dividend cut have eased since last week which would have led to an investor exodus and a serious drop in share value. However, there still seems to be a lot of work to do for recently appointed CEO John Flannery who is overseeing restructuring efforts. “A dividend cut could crush the stock as retail investors flee, but maintaining it gives GE little or no excess cash to grow,” Jeffrey Sprague, an analyst at Vertical Research Partners, said last week. “GE has continued to shrink the company but it has not proportionally shrunk the dividend.” Moody’s Investors Service credit analyst Rene Lipsch told Reuters that GE’s options would narrow next year when it no longer receives billions from asset sales at GE Capital. Adding that, long term, the dividend “depends on Flannery’s ability to increase cash flow from the businesses.” For More Detail : Patience may pay off for General Electric traders
  3. Successful investors usually take an analytical approach when they invest in volatile markets such as the stock or foreign exchange market. For investment in the financial markets, two common strategies are used. These are known as technical and fundamental analysis. Fundamental analysis is a long-term investment strategy whereas technical analysis focuses on the short-term. In order to minimize risk, investors use technical and fundamental analysis techniques to assist them in making profitable investments. The two main analysis techniques are described below: Technical analysis Technical analysis involves studying past trends in order to ascertain patterns. It forecasts future financial price movements based on past price movements in order to help investors predict what is likely to happen to prices over time. Technical analysis involves reading and interpreting charts in order to identify the best time to enter into a trade. If there is a pattern, technical analysis usually provides a safe prediction of how the market will behave in the future. The use of this analysis technique can help investors and traders make sound financial investments in the markets. For More Detail : Technical and fundamental analysis
  4. Bulls and bears characterise and define the volatile market conditions. Bulls and bears is a term which is common in the trading world. It increases the hopes of traders as well as shattering their expectations. What do ‘bull and bears’ really represent? Bulls and bears actually describe market conditions, whether stocks and/or currencies are increasing or decreasing in value. They also demonstrate the mood of the investor, and indicate subsequent market trends. A bull market describes a market that is increasing. This situation causes a psychological boom installing faith in investors and resulting in a positive long-term trend. This tends to happen in countries with strong and solid economies with high employment levels. A bear market causes the opposite psychological effect. It characterizes a falling market with share prices continuously falling, so results in a downward trend persuading investors that this market decline will continue over the long term. It leads to an increase in unemployment as employers begin to dismiss workers. For More Detail : Adapting to bulls and bears
  5. The most successful traders view forex trading as a game of possibilities. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. In fact, there are occasions in every trader’s career when a losing streak can seem to go on forever. Losses happen, but what sets successful traders apart is the way they deal with the ups and downs of the markets. If you are at the point in your trading career where you just feel like quitting, take heart … All successful traders went through what you are feeling, but overcame their doubts to become seasoned traders. They still lose some trades, but they understand that losses go with the territory and all that matters at the end of the day is that your profits far outweigh any losses you make. Let’s take a look at some wise words from people who’ve made it big in the world of finance: Trade dynamics First impressions can be deceiving, so while some trades may seem appealing or vice versa, they may not be in reality. “What seems too high and risky to the majority generally goes higher and what seems low and cheap generally” M O’Neil For More Detail : Wise trading words from pro traders
  6. The value of Sterling plummeted after the Brexit result, but positive long-term economic predictions suggest it will remain a strong currency into the future Last June’s post-Brexit vote sent Sterling values plummeting against every major international currency. It was the inevitable consequence as the market tried to price in the negative implications for the UK economy. As unexpected as the vote to leave was, the market reaction – perhaps overreaction – was entirely predictable. The vote was preceded and followed by a raft of analyst predictions of a weak GBP. The main fear was that Britain’s economy would grow more slowly outside of the EU. However, pro-Brexit economists argue leaving the EU would initially cause a downturn but result in boosting the economy later. Sterling recovers despite gloomy predictions Despite difficult Brexit negotiations and the continued uncertainty surrounding the UK’s relationships with the EU going forward, GBP’s subsequent recovery says plenty about its historical importance and longevity and that needs to be factored in when predicting its future value. GBP’s is the oldest actively traded currency on the foreign exchange market. It is still one of the most popular forex currencies. The result of London being one of the biggest trading hubs in the world. Political uncertainty and war has triggered volatility in GBP’s value over the years. However, it has always stood the test of time and has been relied upon as a global safe haven for investors. History seems to be repeating itself.

  7. For years Starbucks’ shares have mirrored the company’s phenomenal success. However, recently the coffee giant has come under attack from McDonalds and other fast food giants as well as indie coffee shops. This has been reflected in the value of their share price. After reaching a peak price of $64.87 in June, Starbucks’ shares are down 1.41% overall this year. However, Starbucks has expanded into new territories and brought greater convenience to its clients with the use of innovation. This has prompted some analysts to predict that the coffee-making giant will surprise Wall Street when it releases its fourth-quarter earnings on November 2. Starbucks experienced tremendous growth between 2011 and 2016 with sales growth above 5%. It all changed in the third quarter of 2016 when sales growth was just 4% while for the first time transaction growth was flat. For the next quarter, sales growth remained below 5% while transaction growth was negative (-1%). For More Detail : Starbucks might be about to surprise Wall Street
  8. The growth of cryptocurrency and blockchain The interest in cryptocurrency is often referred to as the ‘digital gold rush’ attracting thousands around the world to invest in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and others like Litecoin, Ethereum and Ripple. The value of Bitcoin is linked to sentiment – whenever people rush to invest, the prices go up and when people decide to sell, the price goes down. This volatility has resulted in prices skyrocketing. In 2017, Bitcoin surged in valued from $830 to $19300 and is now fluctuating around $8,000. Other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and Ethereum are following a similar trend. This cryptocurrency rollercoaster has helped lucky investors to make fortunes. Blockchain, the technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, was designed to facilitate, authorise and log the transfer of bitcoins. How does blockchain technology work? Blockchain is a shared database populated with entries that must be confirmed and encrypted. Traditional databases are owned by a central authority like banks and governments, but blockchain does not belong to anyone. The impact that blockchain technology is having is similar to the impact of the internet in the 90s. As society becomes increasingly digital, financial services providers are looking to provide customers with more efficient, secure, and cost-effective services. Therefore, blockchain technology will become more applicable to our daily lives. For More Detail : Cryptocurrency will play a big role in our lives in the future
  9. Bitcoin’s meteoric rise in value this year has outstripped even high-performing technology stocks tempting more investors to capitalise on the volatility while others steer clear fearful of a crash When the Wall Street Journal’s headline reads Bitcoin: Even Grandma Wants In On The Action you can’t ignore it. Bitcoin’s price swings have been prompting volatility-starved investors to join the biggest speculative boom since the 1990s dotcom fever. Just six minutes into Bitcoin futures trading, the contract expiring in January which opened at $15,000 rose to $16,600. Trading on Monday morning (December 11th) in London the contract was changing hands at $17,500. Bitcoin itself was at $16,635.05 according to CoinDesk. Right now there is no hotter ticket having started 2017 at $968.23. Is Bitcoin a bubble? Investment is being tempered by the fear that Bitcoin’s value is speculation driven. They’re wary of putting money into a bubble. Some are convinced it’s the future. John McAfee – founder of the eponymously named software – doubled down on his previous prediction and claimed: “I’ll eat my own d**k on national TV if Bitcoin doesn’t surpass $1 million by 2020.” More investors are setting aside Bitcoin’s questionable past and use by criminal elements. Some see it as a viable alternative to gold as an investment. Especially when faith ebbs in fiat currencies. For More Detail : Bitcoin mania: Join the rush or beware the bubble?

These are traditional currencies such as Euros, Dollars and the British Pound.

  11. 55 years of increasing house prices in Australia is about to end and trigger a collapse in the country’s economy, it has been spurred on by governments, the media and cheap credit from banks According to Jonathan Tepper, one of the world’s property bubble experts, Australia is experiencing the biggest property bubble in history. It has lasted 55 years and seen house prices increase 6556% since 1961. “It is the only country we know of where middle-class houses are auctioned like paintings,” he observed recently. When it crashes Australia’s economy is likely to crash too, as it’s the only sector which has driven GDP growth. It’s one of those rare opportunities traders relish. The volatility in the market will be big and increases the chance of making a huge gain from an investment. You can thank State and Federal governments for this opportunity. They have done everything they can to fuel the housing market to boost Australia’s economy. Doing so has offset the decline in the value and volume of its chief exports iron ore and coal. In return, economic growth provided governments with tax revenue and proof to voters of the success of their policies. For More Detail : Safe as houses? Not if you live in Australia

  15. Samsung reveals plans to create mining chips as it officially enters cryptocurrency arena Samsung have announced that their foundry business makes chips designed for cryptocurrency mining. The move was reported by Korean newspaper The Bell who revealed the chips will be application-specific integrated circuit (Asic). It marks the first official move by Samsung into cryptocurrencies. Garrick Hileman, a cryptocurrency researcher from the University of Cambridge, said the move indicates that Samsung does not see Bitcoin as a bubble that is about to burst Bitcoin may be the biggest and most popular cryptocurrency today. However, it has been joined by many others over the years with new coins being launched regularly. Samsung’s chip manufacturing decision is clearly influenced by more than Bitcoin. The combined market value of cryptocurrencies has gone from less than $20bn to more than $540bn making it impossible to ignore. The South Korean company’s semiconductor business is booming. It overtook Intel to become the world’s biggest chipmaker last year. Asic chips are designed to carry out a single task, which in this case is mining.
