FX Trading

FX Trading

The Foreign Exchange (FX) and Futures markets are two of the highest traded investment products to be found anywhere in the world. According to the 2010 Triennial Central Bank Survey the average daily FX turnover was $ 3.98 Trillion, of which 36.7% of that happened within London.

Investment Management

The global futures market trumps this with an average daily notional turnover of $ 6.1 trillion according to the Sept 2010 Review by the Bank for International Settlements, with trades spread across a number of Financial, Commodity and Agricultural investment products.Both the FX and Futures markets are known for their dynamic nature, where prices change rapidly throughout the day based on worldwide economic and fundamental factors.

The fact the FX markets are open 24 hours a day also allows both Retail and Professional investors alike the opportunity to trade wherever and whenever they wish.
The FX and Futures markets are both relatively inexpensive to trade compared to many investment products available. This gives the added incentive of cost minimisation which can account for significant sums for many active investors over a period of time.

What many investors don’t take account of are factors such as ‘slippage’ (where the average price executed may be worse than the price showing on screen) or market ‘gaps’ when major news events disrupt markets, both overnight or during the day.
PIA firstcapital through their intra-day trading model believe they have found a strong balance in using many of the positive aspects of the FX & Futures trading markets to their advantage, whilst also harnessing the negatives points to limit the downside losses that can occur. For instance, at the end of each day positions are closed and accounts revert to cash. This means there is no overnight risk exposure and, real profits and losses are ‘banked’ to the client’s account each day.

Due to PIA firstcapital’s specialisation in markets that many investors consider as Alternative Investments, the potential for risks and rewards can both be substantial. It’s the very nature of a leveraged product where both large positive/negative returns can be generated through relatively small market price movements.PIA firstcapital by following a structured trading mandate within their FX & Futures Trading programmes also manage to bypass much of the emotion behind trading which contributes to many investors’ downfall. As a company they are under no illusion of the challenge that these markets can pose, even for the experienced investor, as surprises are regularly thrown up. Whilst this is the case, PIA firstcapital firmly believes they can offer investors a real opportunity to invest in Institutional level research on an individual investor basis.

Fixing Metatrader Software

Fixing Metatrader Software

There are cases wherein you need to fix the metatrader software. No matter how reliable they seem to be, applications also have their own limits. Though most people think that fixing metatrader software automatically requires a professional, there are cases that you can do the repair. There are several procedures you may perform to check and troubleshoot some metatrader software concerns.

Check the Installation

Some systems malfunction because they are not properly installed. Check if all system requirements are met or if there is a glitch in one of the installation components. Generally, the program you obtain from metatrader providers contain more than just one file. Make sure you have copy and pasted or properly installed all of the components. The folders contained in the program downloaded should be reflected in the root directory of the metatrader.

It is necessary to have the same filenames for each component. This is crucial for traders using third party software that is not developed by a certain programmer. In case the system still reports missing files then this is the time when you consult the provider.

Other considerations

Some metatrader programs function according to the type of account. For instance, there are live accounts and demo accounts. If the account is no longer active then certainly the applications won’t function anymore. The system won’t be able to manage the trade process. Demo accounts and live accounts have their expiration dates and terms. Make sure you satisfy the terms indicated.

Metatrader site

Another misconception is that metatrader applications malfunction solely because there is a glitch in the program downloaded. This is not the case always. Sometimes the problem can also be in the metatrader platform itself. If the network is experiencing problem, it is most likely that you will also have problems with your applications.

Tourist Exchange Rates

Tourist Exchange Rates

Are you on a gap year? Have you been dreaming of your much-awaited vacation in Europe or Asia? Why not start planning now?

If you are already in the planning process, one of the things you must not forget is your budget. And since, you will be going to other countries and these countries are most likely using other currencies, you have to set a budget that is workable for the currency of your destination country. To stretch the value of your budget, you have to consider one of the things that most tourists take for granted the tourist exchange rates.

Getting the best tourist exchange rates is one of the most vital component of your trips success. Why? Of course, it is expected that as a tourist you want to get the most out of your money and see more with less money. And to be able to do this, you have to scout for the best tourist exchange rates available in your destination country. You could say that the rates are the best ones if you could buy them at much cheaper rates. Naturally, if you buy the currency at a much cheaper rate, you could buy more of it.

Now, how do you actually scout for the best tourist exchange rates? What you have to do is research before your trip. The Internet is a very useful tool, so use it to search for the best tourist exchange rates in your destination country. Through online websites, you could also ask financial institutions about their rates for tourists, or it would be better to ask other tourists about their money exchanging experiences and which bank or financial institution gave them the best deals.

From most tourists recommendations, it could be said that CurrencyChange.eu offers one of the best tourist exchange rates worldwide. They are known for their effort to maximize the value of your money by giving you the best deals and for the protection they give their clients from the negative fluctuations of the forex rates.

Another tip that could help tourists stretch the value of their budgeted money is to exchange money in bulk. Not only will this help you get better exchange rates, but it will also help you save on the fees charged by banks and other financial institutions for every transaction.

Follow these simple tips and have the time of your life during your much-awaited vacations.
