Introduction:
Interest Rate is among the most important fundamental data that impacts the currency of a country. It's of vital importance for any trader to keep a watch on this important data for his or her trading activities. A change in Interest Rate viz. a hike or a cut could be a percursor to a long term bearish or bullish bias respectively on the currency.
Interest Rate is the also most important tool major Central Banks around the world like FED, ECB, BOJ, PBOC etc use to guide the economy and the overall markets to its desired goals. Interest Rates are set by Central Banks to majorly keep inflation within a limit and to promote or curb lending. For instance, if prices for essential items and inflation are ballooning in conjunction with better economic conditions, Central Banks will hike Interest Rate to curb money supply to control price rise and inflation.
How Rates are calculated? :
Board of Directors of Central Banks controls the monetary policy of its country. They set the short-term interests at which banks can borrow from one another. Central Banks gather various relevant economic indicators from its economy to decide on Interest Rates to keep as its is or to cut o…

    - WHAT DOES FREEDOM MEAN FOR YOU?     - WHAT DOES SUCCESS MEAN TO YOU?     - WHAT DOES FAILURE MEAN TO YOU? Are Traders PROGRAMMED TO FAIL?... I wrote this article not as much about FAILING as it is about Your Successful Mentality of Gaining Financial FREEDOM...     I've noticed most people never think of FREEDOM.     Most people have an illusion of their Success because they never think beyond what they were thought from their Family, School Education, Society, Mass-Media, Work Environement, Life Experience... etc.     Most People don't realise that what they consider as "their SUCCESS" could be more often "THEIR BIGGEST LIFE FAILURE".     I SAY: NEVER SETTLE FOR LESS THAN WHAT YOU ARE ABLE TO OBTAIN.. AT ANY TIME... BEYOND TIME     You can win as much as Your GOALS try to obtain. If you run for Failure, Your will get it.    If PROS TRADERS, that have been trading FULL TIME for more than 5 YEARS.. are not yet financially FREE... From my perspective you can consider that all their experience could be a dis-advantage instead of an advantage... although most New Traders lose more money...     Could They Have "trained" themselves (or let themselves trai…

This is probably last part of articles engaging topics about quantitative analysis and quants First was about some ideas and logical concepts projecting views for real use of many dataSecond about practical technology used on analysis and algo tradingThird talking about technical market structure and effects of market development Now time is for small summary. Trading on financial markets is a serious business. It is often said to incredible profits, but it ignores the element losses and expenses. Availability leverage in the investments has changed world. Borrowing and loans are known for years, but now scale of this is very big. We talking about cheap money and after global financial crisis of 2008 world want back to the normality, what is not easy because we are in 2011 and we have next part of crisis after Credit Crunch what is global problem of debt. Financial regulators decreasing leverage levels for many brokers from 1:1000, 1:500 to 1:100, 1:50 but many countries and financial institutions still offer this levels. Your risk of bankruptcy isn’t problem for broker coz your margin level is cut to your real deposit. Problem is when broker don’t coverage your orders …

Read first and second part if you want have a full context about this article.Incredible advantage in the market can make an incredibly big money. The whole business is based on the price and its change. Entering the market at different times and taking the positions we have our own expectations of future prices – Interest. This is speculation. Watch “Quants: The Alchemists of Wall Street”  On Forex we have floating exchange rate what is an free exchange rate quoted by big players, big financial institutions and government. They can change visions of every investor and player in any time. Every player have own strategy and own vision about market. Current quotes is effect by simple rule supply and demand. There are seller and buyers. Every trader, investor are included in big process which is price creation. Even the smallest players, but with less influence. The last usually are wondering what will happen next after big player realized own business. How I say about big players.. remember most import is volume. This type of players are trading on interbank by Reuters and Bloomberg terminals. Look simple cases of dealing with spot GBPUSD on Bloomberg terminal. (source: Bl…

Quantitative Analysis on Financial Market Financial markets have been dominated by the super-eminent analysts using sophisticated analysis techniques known as Quantitative Analysis and the analysts themselves are called as Quants. It is used here great potential that give us computers and computing capabilities. The work in this area are specialized theoreticians and practitioners of advanced mathematics, physics, computer science and other sciences. Their work is often not understood by the common man, because they using very complex language  and extensive record of reality with the help of numbers and code. Analyses include huge amounts of data through what is required to use the latest technologies in the work to achieve satisfactory results with high precision and in the shortest possible time. I'd like to present a piece of practical solutions in my brief. The basic problem for which the analyst and investors meets in  amateur case are: Not full knowledge of the marketsToo much data and variablesBig volatility in small timeWishful expectations for the analysisHigh costs and limited access to best  technologySmall deposit These problems shoul…
