Dear colleagues!
Since the number of traders on the foreign exchange market is constantly growing, does it mean that there are some advantages to Forex? Of course, yes, they do exist. How much they are significant for a particular person, how far the negative sides of trading outweigh, we will try to find out further.
In any case, if a person does something, then he needs it for something. Agree that on Forex no one would come to work, if I did not see for myself in this sense. It turns out, that nevertheless there are various reasons why from all possible ways of earnings the currency market is chosen. Of course, such reasons may be different, but the typical ones will be noted.
Trading in the international currency market is often associated with freedom:
1. The trader can work for five days a week at any time of the day.
2. There is no working schedule, which the speculator should follow without fail.
3. People are not attached to a particular office or any other premises for this type of activity. Now it is very common to trade through all possible mobile devices.
Would not you like to work only when you want, and without limiting yourself territorially? Even such an idea of ​​…

Earlier Article we focused on strategies of trading in Binary Option and in this we focus on concept of binary option, bank, regulation and scam, So lets have a look :-
  • Concept of Binary Option
Binary options also called digital options or fixed-return options (FRO) are a simple way to trade price fluctuations in a wide range of financial markets. Binary options have different profits, costs, risks, liquidity structure and investment processes than the traditional (vanilla) options. Binary options offer a non-linear return and a way to gain up to 90% of the initial investment/premium if the contract terminates In-the-money. Binary options are a simple yes/no trade in which the trader either gains a fixed profit or loses their original investment. You can buy or sell binary options on stock indices, commodities, currencies and even economic events such as the monthly unemployment report.
Difference between Binary and Plain Vanilla Options
Binary options are significantly different from vanilla options. Plain vanilla options are a normal type of option that does not include any special features. A plain vanilla option gives the holder the right to buy or sell an underlying asset a…

al_dcdemo  yes the test did not have a great statistical consistence but as you can immagine the interest rate decision that differe from the forecast are not so many ......
It probably could be possible to try with RUB but the slippage and the spread could absorbe the hedging pips.

In the last years and in particular this year, the London FIX has been on the front page of mainstream media but not for the good reasons. Trials and allegations involving various big banks is under developing right now as they are accused of artificially fixing currency rates and rigging the FX market.
This growing scandal suggests that no matter how big is the size of the FX market the fact that the market is controlled by a small group of traders at a handful of large banks it makes the FX market prone to manipulations.
Lack of regulation is one of the other reason why FX wrongdoing is possible and what makes FX market the most opaque market of all financial markets.
Before going any further we must address some serious questions like: What is the fix?; Who uses the fix? How is the fix manipulated?; and the most important question is: How can we make money of the fix?
Although there is no doubt the London Fix has been manipulated, by answering the above questions and knowing the mechanism behind London Fix we can create a profitable strategy from a risk to reward stand point of view. It's like in Poker, if you have the possibility to know your opponent cards you know which cards…

This, in my view, an interesting question, so I decided to dedicate this issue the article. For a start, who do not know what the currency central bank intervention, then I'll tell a little about this:         Currency intervention of the Central Bank - is central bank intervention in the market to stabilize the national currency by buying or selling.    In order to lower the national currency the central bank has resorted to selling some of the stocks in the national currency for foreign currency or gold, in order to improve the course, the central bank buys the national currency for foreign currency or gold.         Currency intervention of the Central Bank is of three kinds: 1. Explicit 2. Hidden 3. Verbal.         Verbal intervention - is a psychological impact on market participants of the bodies involved in monetary policy.         Hidden intervention - when the bank simply keeps the level of the national currency at any particular level that he needs. This intervention is difficult to determine. Exchange rate is approximately 30 to 100 points.         Explicit intervention - is the active implementation of the Central Bank in the market, buying or dumping of large amounts of…
