Commercial Foreign Money Transfers Versus Speculative Trading

Many people think the foreign exchange runs on commercial enterprise, with people buying currency or sending money abroad for imports and other costs.

Learning To Read Foreign Exchange Charts

Foreign currency trading all seems so straight forward on paper – it’s a different matter putting it all into practice. The charts you see whizzing by on Bloomberg bear little relation to what you’ve learned. This is often because they include data such as YTD (year to date) figures. This data is important to currency …

The difference between retail and independent foreign exchange brokers

Retail brokers were for a long time seen as the only route to foreign currency trading for smaller investors. The foreign exchange market is totally decentralised, and is largely controlled by the world’s large banks. These banks trade with each other globally.
