Forex Trading Platforms and How They Are Verified

As the popularity of forex trading has surged in recent years, leading more and more retail traders tolearn forex online, so has the proliferation of automated forex systems, expert advisors, forex robots and legions of related products.

What we have found is that some of these products work well for a limited amount of time, some never work and others are consistent performers over the long haul. When it comes to automated trading systems and forex robots you can evaluate 10 or 20 of these products and find few similarities between them. Sure, they are intended to help you make more pips, but beyond that, there is little in the way of commonalities.

One thing that these automated forex systems do have in common is that they all tell you about the profitable results they've accumulated. That's a pretty common sales tactic. After all, the purveyors of these products have to have some hook to get you interested and if they can illustrate that their product produces stellar results, it will normally grab the attention of more than a few prospective buyers.

Of course there are plenty of traders that eschew pre-built automated systems altogether, choosing to use a platform like Meta Trader to develop their own mechanical trading system. No matter what system you decided to go with, one you developed or one developed by someone else, that system is going to be back-tested.

Back-testing is simply the act of taking a system's strategy and applying to market data that has already occurred. Think about that for a minute. The only way to test the efficacy of a trading system is to use old data. It cannot be argued that patterns repeat themselves over and over again in financial markets, but that doesn't mean that backtesting is a fool-proof method of discerning how good a trading system is.

The reality is backtesting can be quite deceiving. Traders need to identify what length of time the backtest encompasses. If the backtest only includes six months of data, it might make the forex system profitable under one set of market conditions, but vulnerable once the market changes.

The other side of this coin is that backtests can reach too far into the past and study market conditions that may never be repeated again or scenarios that only come up once every few years.

Another knock on backtesting is that it doesn't take into consideration the random nature of the market. If there was a way to explain why a currency moves the way it does, there would be a lot more successful traders. Backtesting is good for pattern identification and spotting trends, but the results generated by a backtest don't always include quick price spikes or drops that are often prevalent in short-term trading.

The bottom line is backtesting isn't going anywhere because it's easy to use and easy to explain. In addition, since no one has the benefit of a crystal ball, the only way to test any trading system for any asset class is with historical price data. That said, backtesting should not be the only data point you rely on for testing the virtues of your trading system.

Audio Conferencing Equipment Features, Considerations and Benefits

Audio conferencing equipment helps organizations to conduct and participate in a teleconference and improve their business communications with the national and international business associates, clients, as well as, employees appointed in different geographical locations.

Audio conferencing is gaining a fast popularity and more and more number of businesses are investing in the audio conferencing equipment because, audio conferences offer convenient communications, at affordable prices. The teleconferencing equipments, as well as, the services were very expensive when they were first launched in the market. But now with the rising demands and popularity of these services and equipments, these are available at reasonable prices. Therefore, these can be easily afforded by the medium and small sized organizations as well.

There are different models of wired and wireless conference phones available in the market. Each of these models has its specific functions, features and specialties. Also, different models have the capability of accommodating different number of participants. However, most of the teleconference equipments can accommodate minimum of three and maximum of thirty participants.

Besides the regular attachments, many wired/wireless conference phones are equipped with extra microphones for enhancing the sound quality and clarity of the conference and expansion kits so that the conference phone units can be connected to one another. By connecting a number of audio conferencing units together, an audio conference can be conducted successfully in even the largest conference room, with the maximum number of participants.

Conference phones can be used successfully with analog, as well as, digital systems. The wireless phones and the units with remote control further enhance the audio conferencing experience with their added flexibility. There are Polycom VoIP phonesavailable in the market, which are specially designed and manufactured for conducting VoIP audio conferences.

Most of the audio conferencing equipment available in the market are equipped with clips so that the cords and cables attached to the unit during an audio conference, run under the unit and remain flat. These equipments also have high quality speakers, an integral keypad, a digital display and noise canceling microphones.

Many organizations prefer investing in wireless conference phones, as these provide increased mobility and freedom from the web of wires. Even these units are equipped with high quality speakers and microphones.

As we need to make certain considerations while buying video conferencing cameras and other conferencing equipments, similarly we need to consider certain things while buying teleconferencing equipment. The size of the conferencing room, the number of extensions required and the quality of the unit are some of the most important considerations to make while purchasing audio

How to Trade Forex

Trading foreign exchange is exciting and potentially very profitable, but there are also significant risk factors. It is crucially important that you fully understand the implications of margin trading and the particular pitfalls and opportunities that foreign exchange trading offers. On these pages, we offer you a brief introduction to the Forex markets as well as their participants and some strategies that you can apply. However, if you are ever in doubt about any aspect of a trade, you can always discuss the matter in-depth with one of our dealers. They are available 24 hours a day on the Saxo Bank online trading system, SaxoTrader.

The benchmark of its service is efficient execution, concise analysis and expertise – all achieved whilst maintaining an attractive and competitive cost structure. Today, Saxo Bank offers one of Europe's premier all-round services for trading in derivative products and foreign exchange. We count amongst our employees numerous dealers and analysts, each of whom has many years experience and a wide and varied knowledge of the markets – gained both in our home countries and in international financial centres. When trading foreign exchange, futures and other derivative products, we offer 24-hour service, extensive daily analysis, individual access to our Research & Analysis department for specific queries, and immediate execution of trades through our international network of banks and brokers. All at a price considerably lower than that which most companies and private investors normally have access to.

The combination of our strong emphasis on customer service, our strategy and trading recommendations, our strategic and individual hedging programmes, along with the availability to our clients of the latest news and information builds a strong case for trading an individual account through Saxo Bank.

Terms of trading are agreed individually depending on the volume of your transactions, but are generally much lower in cost when compared to banks and brokers. Your margin deposit can be cash or government securities, bank guarantees etc. Large corporate or institutional clients may be offered trading facilities on the strength of their balance sheet. The minimum deposit accepted for an individual trading account depends on the account type. Trade confirmations and real-time account overview are built into SaxoTrader, while further account information can be produced in accordance with your specific requirements.

Casualty Insurance

Casualty insurance is typically combined with property insurance and often referred to as “property and casualty” insurance. However, there is a difference in the type of coverage. This is especially true after the events on September 11, 2001 and the hurricanes in 2004-2005.

Property insurance insures the location of the business while casualty insurance insures the business.

For example, if your business is on the seventh floor of a building and a natural disaster, such as a flood, occurs that wipes out the first floor, but causes no damage to the seventh floor, then any loss would not be covered by your property insurance because there is no direct loss to the location of the business. However, if you have business continuation or business interruption insurance you may have coverage for the indirect loss to your business.

Many of these products are developing in today’s world. Insurers are making it necessary to carry additional casualty insurance to cover certain types of losses. These types of coverage include:

  • Terrorism Coverage –

    Acts of terrorism or war are not covered by traditional insurance policies – or, so claims the insurers. The attacks on September 11, 2001, resulted in claims exceeding $30 billion. Insurers now specifically exclude terrorism and require the purchase of a terrorism policy.

  • Flood Insurance –

    Floods are generally not covered by typical property insurance policies and a separate flood insurance policy is necessary to protect against that risk.

  • Political Risk or Government Liability –

    If you do business overseas or have substantial government contracts, then you may want to look into this type of coverage. It protects against a sudden loss due to a sudden political change in a country or withdrawal of a contract without recourse.

  • Other Types –

    There are other types of casualty insurance that seem to be developed in response to the latest news: Cyber-Liability, Identity Theft, Cyber-Fraud, Employee Theft, etcetera.

Some of these casualty policies may be critical for the safe operation of your business. More often though, standard casualty coverage offered with a business owners’ policy will be enough casualty coverage and these types of policies are ‘flavors of the month.’

Casualty insurance also includes certain types of bonds or other limited insurance that have been long standing products and may be very necessary to your business.

  • Employee Theft and Dishonesty –

    This coverage protects your business from loss or damage caused by employee theft. If your employees have access to company funds or handle cash transactions you may want to consider this coverage for the employees.

  • Surety Bonds –

    This form of casualty coverage referred to as a bond insures someone you will contract with that you will complete the contract. If you are in construction or plan on bidding for government jobs, then you will be required to obtain a surety bond to insure your work.

    Casualty insurance is a different type of insurance than property insurance. We will review different forms of casualty insurance and how these can work within your business plan.

Property Insurance

Property insurance insures your business against loss or damage to the location of the business and to its contents. It will also insure against loss or damage to contents under your control. Finally, if your business rents or leases a location or travels to other physical locations, then your business will be required by the property owner to carry property insurance by the terms of the lease or contract.

The more kinds of loss the policy covers, the higher the premium. Property insurance comes in two forms:

  • Broad Form – This type of policy identifies a number of different types of disasters and covers against loss from all identified causes in the policy.

  • Single or Specific Peril – This type of policy insures against loss only from the identified peril. This is typically a separate fire policy. However, other single perils can be insured against, for example, terrorism.

For most small businesses, a broad form property insurance policy is included in a packaged policy known as the “business owners’ policy” and will be the best coverage for the premium dollar. Some businesses, however, either because of specific risks or unusually high risk, may not be eligible for such a package. In that case, several specific peril policies may need to priced and examined.

Property insurance policies can be modified:

  • Endorsements – Endorsements add increased coverage or identify other business locations that are covered. This can include a customer’s location, for example, if your business is working at their location. Endorsements are a big benefit for your business and can be added, typically by a phone call, to a policy relatively easily if you have a good insurance professional.

  • Exclusions – Exclusions take away coverage. Your insurance professional or insurer will tell you that property policies are “always” written with the “such-and-such” exclusion. Exclusions are the business insurance purchaser’s worst enemy. The most recent example is after the hurricanes in 2004-2005. Many insurers claimed that the exclusion in their policies for “wind” damage excluded much of the damage from coverage. Regardless of what an insurer tells you: exclusions take away coverage.

  • Schedules – Schedules are lists of covered locations and property. These must be updated regularly and at any time a location or major covered equipment changes or is purchased. Good insurance professionals will contact you on a regular basis to discuss updating scheduled locations and equipment. If a location or piece of equipment is not a “scheduled” location or content, there is a possibility that a claim could be denied on that basis.

Property insurance can pay damages or loss based on one of two ways:

  • Actual Cash Value (or, ACV) – Actual cash value means that your loss or damage is valued at the value of the property loss. Sounds fair. But, if a $100,000 car lift in your garage has been depreciated over a five-year period it may be found to have an ACV of $20,000 at the time of loss. You can’t purchase a new lift for $20,000.

  • Replacement Value – Replacement value means that you are reimbursed the actual amount necessary to replace the equipment when it is lost. In the example above, if the new lift costs $120,000 to replace, then you get a new lift for $120,000.

    Replacement value coverage typically carries higher premiums.

    All of the above elements must be considered when reviewing and comparing property insurance for your business. A comparison made only on the premiums ignores critical aspects of the policy.

Types of Business Insurance

Business insurance is a broad description that can be broken down into a list of nine types of insurance policies and here I will briefly explain the coverage and expand on these as individual topics

Forex Market Drivers

The forex market is driven by a number of fundamentals, including interest rates and the prices of commodities such as gold and oil.

Rising interest rates strengthen that country's currency

A common way to think about interest rates is how much it's going to cost to borrow money, whether how much we pay for our mortgages or how much we earn on our bond and money market investments. Interest rate policy is a key driver of currency prices and is a popular trading strategy for new currency traders.

Fundamentally, if a country raises its interest rates, its currency prices will strengthen because the higher interest rates attract more foreign investors.

For example, higher rates in the Eurozone may prompt U.S. investors to sell U.S. dollars and buy bonds in Euros. Similarly, if interest rates increase in Switzerland, those investors may decide to sell their Euro-bonds and move into bonds in Swiss francs (CHF), driving Euros down and Swiss francs up.

When gold goes up, the USD goes down (and vice versa)

Historically, gold is seen as a "safe haven", a country-neutral investment and an alternative to the world's other reserve currency, the U.S. dollar. That means gold prices tend to have an inverse relationship to the US dollar, offering several ways for currency traders to take advantage of that relationship.

For example, if gold breaks an important price level, and as a result you expected gold to continue moving higher, you might sell dollars and buy Euros, as a proxy for higher gold prices.

Rising gold prices help major gold producers

Australia is the world's third largest exporter of gold, and Canada is the third largest producer worldwide. These two major currencies tend to strengthen as gold prices rise. You might consider going long these currencies when gold is increasing in value, or trade your GBP or JPY for these currencies when gold is on the rise.

Oil-dependent countries weaken as oil prices rise

Just as airlines and other oil-dependent industries are hurt by rising oil prices, so are the currencies of oil-dependent countries like the US or Japan, both of which are massively dependent on foreign oil.

If you believe oil prices will continue to rise, you might consider buying the currency of commodity-based economies like Australia or Canada, or selling the currencies of oil-dependent economies.

Fundamental Analysis

Introduction to Fundamental Analysis

AnalysisFundamental analysis studies the core underlying elements that influence the price of a particular entity, like a stock or currency. It attempts to predict price action and trends by analysing economic indicators, government policy, societal and other factors within a business cycle framework.

If you think of the markets as a big clock, fundamentals are the gears and springs that move the hands around the face. Anyone can tell you what time it is now, but the fundamentalist knows about the inner workings that move the clock's hands towards times (or prices) in the future.

Are you a technician or fundamentalist?

There's a tendency to pigeonhole traders into two distinct schools: fundamental or technical. In fact, most smart traders favour a blended approach versus being a purist of either type.

Fundamentalists need to keep an eye on signals derived from price charts, while few technicians can afford to completely ignore impending economic data, critical political decisions or pressing societal issues that influence price action.

Forecasting economic conditions using models

Fundamental analysis is very effective at forecasting economic conditions, but not necessarily exact market prices. Studying GDP forecasts or employment reports can give you a fairly clear picture of an economy's health and the forces at work behind it. But you still need a method to translate that into specific trade entry and exit points.

The bridge between fundamental data and a specific trading strategy usually comes from a trader model. These models use current and historical empirical data to estimate future prices and translate those into specific trades.

Beware of "analysis paralysis"

Forecasting models are both art and science, with so many different approaches that traders can get overloaded. It can be tough to decide when you know enough to pull the trigger on a trade with confidence.

Many traders switch to technical analysis at this point to test their hunches and see when price patterns suggest an entry.

Look for fundamental drivers first

The fundamentals include everything that makes a country and its currency tick. From interest rates and central bank policy to natural disasters, the fundamentals are a dynamic mix of distinct plans, erratic behaviors and unforeseen events.

That said, not every development will move a country's currency. Try to start by identifying the most influential contributors to this mix versus following every fundamental out there.

Understanding Forex Quotes

Reading a foreign exchange quote is simple if you remember two things:
  1. The first currency listed is the base currency
  2. The value of the base currency is always 1.
The US dollar is usually considered the base currency for quotes. When the base currency is USD, think of the quote as telling you what a US dollar is worth in that other currency.

When USD is the base currency and the quote goes up, that means USD has strengthened in value and the other currency has weakened. In other words, a rising quote means that the US dollar can buy more of the other currency than before.

Majors not based on the US dollar

There are three exceptions when the US Dollar is not the base currency of a pair - these exceptions are the British pound (GBP), the Australian dollar (AUD) and the Euro (EUR).

For these pairs, the quote is based on the other currency, and a rising quote means that the other currency is strengthening, and the US dollar is weakening.

Cross currencies

Currency pairs that don't involve USD at all are called cross currencies.

BID, ASK and the Spread

Just like other markets, forex quotes consist of two sides, the BID and the ASK:

The BID is the price at which you can SELL base currency.
The ASK is the price at which you can BUY base currency.

The spread is the difference between the BID and the ASK, and represents the cost of trading. In forex, spreads are tighter than many other markets, making it cost effective to trade on relatively small price movements.

What's a pip?

Forex prices are generally very liquid, and are usually quoted in very small increments called pips, or "percentage in point". A pip refers to the fourth decimal point out, or 1/100th of 1%.

For Japanese yen, pips refer to the second decimal point. This is the only exception among the major currencies

Calculating Profit and Loss

Our online trading platform will automatically calculate the P&L of your open positions, but it is useful to understand how this calculation is made to understand your profit and loss potential on each trade.
Example 1:

Let's say that the current bid/ask for EUR/USD is 1.4616
0/190, meaning you can buy 1 euro for 1.46190 or sell 1 euro for 1.46160.

Suppose you decide that the Euro is undervalued against the US dollar, and you expect it to strengthen, you would buy Euros (simultaneously selling dollars), and then wait for the exchange rate to rise.

To make the trade you buy 100,000 Euros, paying 146,190 dollars (100,000 x 1.4619
0). At 1% margin, your initial margin deposit would be approximately $1,461 for this trade.

If as you expected, the Euro strengthens you can realise a profit by selling EUR/USD to close your trade. If the Euro had strengthened to 1.46230
0/260, you would sell 100,000 Euros at the current rate of 1.46230, and receive $146,230

To calculate your profit:

You bought 100,000 Euros at 1.4619
0, paying $146,190.

You sold 100,000 Euros at 1.4623
0, receiving $146,230.

That's a difference of 4 pips, or in dollar terms ($146,190 - 146,230 = $40).

Total profit = US $40.

Let's say that we once again buy EUR/USD when trading at 1.4616

You buy 100,000 Euros paying 146,190 dollars (100,000 x 1.4619
0) - as in example 1.

However, in this example the Euro weakens to 1.4611
0/140. To minimise your loss you sell 100,000 Euros at 1.46110 and receive $146,110.

To calculate your loss:

You bought 100k Euros at 1.4619
0, paying $146,190.

You sold 100k Euros at 1.4611
0, receiving $146,110.

That's a difference of 8 pips, or in dollar terms ($146,190 - $146,110 = $80).

Total loss = US $80.

More leverage means more opportunity - and more risk

Trading using leverage offers significantly increased profit potential, but it is important to remember that it also means significantly increased risk. Your risks can be limited by monitoring your account, and by using stop losses to set the maximum loss you are prepared to take on any one position. Learn more about using stop losses and managing risk on your account in our online training courses. No debit balances, no margin calls

At, your risk is limited to funds on deposit. There are no margin calls in forex trading. You need to maintain sufficient funds on your account to keep your positions open, and you will not be able to open larger positions than can be supported by your account balance. If your account falls below the required level to maintain your position(s), we will automatically close out all positions to ensure that you can't lose more money than you have in your account.

Forex Basics

Leverage & Margin

Leverage trading, or trading on margin, means you aren't required to put up the full value of the position. As a result, you can open a significantly larger position that you would be able to if you needed to fund your trade in full. Trading on leverage increases your potential for profit, but also increases your risks.

Forex trading offers leverage up to 200:1, This means that for every £1 in your account, you can trade £200 worth of a position.
