Then, copy that formula down for the rest of your stocks. But, as I said, dividends can make a huge contribution to the returns received for a particular stock. Also, you can insert charts and diagrams to understand the distribution of your investment portfolio, and what makes up your overall returns. If you have data on one sheet in Excel that you would like to copy to a different sheet, you can select, copy, and paste the data into a new location. A good place to start would be the Nasdaq Dividend History page. You should keep in mind that certain categories of bonds offer high returns similar to stocks, but these bonds, known as high-yield or junk bonds, also carry higher risk.
Now, even the average investors are capable of buying and selling currencies easily with a mere click of a button through their own trading accounts set up in various online brokerages. In the forex market, the daily currency fluctuations are usually very small with most currency pairs moving less than one cent per day.
This makes foreign exchange one of the least volatile existing financial markets. With this, many currency speculators depend on the availability of enormous leverage in order to increase the value of any potential movements. Forex brokers offer leverage of up to giving clients, who have an account balance of 10,, the ability to control 4,, and the opportunity to open bigger or more deals.
You should still keep in mind that the higher the leverage is, the higher the risk. You can also choose to open and close your position within minutes or you can keep it open for months. Additionally, the size of the market also acts as an obstacle, making it impossible even for the large players such as the central bank to manipulate the currency prices.
Investors are presented with numerous opportunities once they enter the forex markets. But like with everything else, you still have to familiarize yourself with the basics behind currency movements in order for you to be successful in the field.
Chapter 2: How to Trade Forex Breaking down Forex Trading Forex trading is one of the most popular types of trading there is in the financial field. Currencies hold a certain degree of importance to almost everyone in the world, whether they are aware of it or not. This is mostly because currencies are the medium being used in order to conduct foreign trade and business.
For instance, if you wish to buy a product from a foreign country you would normally go to a store near you in order to purchase or order it, right? But for that to be possible, the store would have needed to import the goods from that foreign country. This exchange could be between U. There is no central marketplace where foreign exchange is being conducted. The trades are being completed electronically over-the-counter or OTC.
This means that all trades are conducted through computer networks that connect traders all over the world. Investors have varying reviews and opinions regarding the foreign exchange market. The market is also opened 24 hours a day, five days a week, and almost every brokerage firm offers its services during this time period.
With this, even if the trading day in the U. You can then see that the forex market is active almost any time of the day with the constantly changing price quotes. Forex Trading Styles and Strategies There are several trading strategies you can use when it comes to forex trading. Some have been known to be more effective when compared to others. You should research well about these various strategies in order to find out which one will fit you best. Here are some of the most popular strategies you can choose from: Day Trading Strategy: Trades set using this strategy are normally exited before the day comes to an end.
Please note that trailing stops work only when the trading terminal is open. Once the terminal is switched off the stop loss is fixed at its current spot. Go to Top 4. How to Use Forex for Hedging Hedging denotes safety and security.
Hedging means the protection of a client's funds from unfavorable currency rate fluctuations. Account funds are fixed at their current price through conducting trades on Forex. Thus, hedging helps to ease exposure to currency rate changes risks, which helps to prevent the risk of currency rate fluctuations. As a matter of fact, hedging presupposes using one instrument in order to lower the risk related to unfavorable market factors impact on the price of another one directly associated with it.
Hedging can also be considered as a type of investment allowing to minimize price movements risks in the market. The hedging cost should be valued with regard to the possible losses in the event of not hedging. Here's a hedging example: a trader, who imports in a foreign currency, opens a buy trade with the currency of his trading account in advance, and when the real time of the currency purchase arrives to his bank, he closes the position.
And a trader, who exports in a foreign currency, opens a sell trade with the currency on his trading account beforehand, and at a the real moment of this currency purchase in his bank, he closes it. Go to Top 5. Simple to comprehend and master - In a Forex trade we deal with just a pair of currencies 2. Low Minimum Investment - The Forex market requires less capital to start trading than most other markets.
The initial investment could go very low, depending on the leverage offered by the broker. This is a great advantage since Forex traders are able to keep their risk investment to the lowest level. Online Forex brokers offer "mini" and "micro" trading accounts with low minimum account deposit. We're not saying you should open an account with the bare minimum, but it does make Forex trading much more accessible to the average individual who doesn't have a lot of start-up trading capital.
Trading starts when the markets open in Australia on Sunday evening, and ends after markets close in New York on Friday. High Liquidity - Liquidity is the ability of an asset to be converted into cash quickly and without any price discount. In Forex this means we can move large amounts of money into and out of foreign currency with minimal price movement. Low Transaction Cost - In Forex, typically the cost of a transaction is built into the price. It is called the spread.
The spread is the difference between the buying and selling price. Leverage - Forex Brokers allow traders to trade the market using leverage. Leverage is the ability to trade more money on the market than what is actually in the trader's account. This means, if you think a currency pair is going to increase in value; you can buy it, or go long.
Similarly, if you think it could decrease in value you can sell it, or go short.. No one can corner the market - The foreign exchange market is so huge and has so many participants that no single entity can control the market price for an extended period of time. Such a huge amount of a daily volume allows for an excellent price stability in most market conditions.
This means you likely will never have to worry about slippage as you would when trading stocks or commodities. The price you see quoted on your trading screen is the price you get. Market transparency and Instant execution - Market transparency is much greater in Forex than in stocks or commodities, this means it is easier to analyze the inner workings of the market and figure out what is driving it.
Instantaneous order execution is another great advantage Forex has over other markets. Retail Forex trading is generally done over the internet on all electronic platforms. The Forex market has no central exchange and was designed to be this way to facilitate large banks and allow for instant execution of transactions, this means no delays for you and extreme ease of execution. Price movements are highly predictable in the Forex market - Due to its highly speculative nature Forex price movements tend to over shoot and then correct back to the mean.
This means there are a number of repetitive patterns that are easily recognizable to the trader who is trained in price action analysis. Forex currency pairs generally spend more time in very strong up or down trends than other markets, this is also a huge advantage because it is generally much easier to trade a strongly trending market than a chaotic and consolidating market.
Now, if you were holding a futures position over night it is entirely possible that your stop got gapped around, in which case you would get filled at the next best price, which often will be extremely damaging to your trading account. Direct participation, difficult to manipulate or influence - Forex trading operates in a decentralized online electronic market for its participants: Banks, FCMs, hedge funds, governments, retail currency conversion houses and high worth net individuals.
Investors can interact directly with the market maker for pricing on a currency pair. Access is quicker and costs are lower than in other markets. Large market liquidity makes it very difficult for any one participant to manipulate or influence it. Easier market analysis - Countries are more often stable than companies making it easier to predict their economic direction. Primary factors affecting demand and supply for Forex investment are interest rates and economic indicators such as GDP, trade balances and foreign investment.
This and other economic data released regularly determines demand and supply for currency pairs. Technology frontiers and investing - Technology enables the retail investor the ability to make better investment decisions through ready access to economic and political news events, to technical charting software and electronic trading platforms. They also have transparent and safe access to their investment funds in segregated accounts so that the safety of their funds is guaranteed.
Limited Risk - Despite the common perception about Forex being risky, it is easy to limit and reduce the risk if a trader chooses the right strategy. In addition it should be mentioned that stops are much easier to control as well, that is why newbies have good chances to succeed even while doing their first steps as Forex investors and traders.
No fees or middlemen - There are no commissions when trading on the Forex market. The retail brokers in this market are compensated through the bid-ask spread. Businessmen can also spot currency trading which eliminates the middlemen and allows each person to trade directly with the market that is responsible for pricing on a certain currency pair. Not only does this expedite the process, it gives each trader more options and versatility.
Go to Top 6. This strategy is widely followed because of its simplicity to identify and trade and many times, strong trends can bail you out of an imperfect set of buy and sell rules. Before we delve into the basics of Trend Following, it is important to first explain why trend trading is a popular strategy used by many new and experienced traders.
Do you have the perfect Forex trading strategy? I have not found it. To me, a perfect strategy is the one that wins all of the time and has minimal trade drawdown. Therefore, learning how to trade in an imperfect world is very important.
Trend following is a simple way to cover up some strategy imperfections by identifying the strongest trends in the market. When you trade in the direction of the trend, the rest of your trading approach can fall right into place. This doesn't mean that all your trades will be winners. It does mean that you don't have to be exact in your entries and exits once you find a strong trend to trade. Now how do you know when a trend starts and when it is going to end?
Since this is a beginners guide I will not elaborate on the various techniques that traders use to identify trends as this is beyond the scope of this book. I will however touch on several techniques in later chapters but note that these will be just in an introduction level without going too much deeper. Any trader either a newbie or a pro should develop his own style of trading.
There are several trading styles that you can adopt. You will choose your style based on your personality and financial capacities. Many traders make the mistake of adopting a trading style that is unnatural for them. A trader may adopt one of the following two main trading styles: Day Trading and Intraweek trading.
Let's discuss each of them; Day Trading Day trading on Forex means that one or few trades are conducted within one trading day. As a rule, the time intervals between the opening or the closing of trades may take from several minutes up to several hours. Despite some difficulties of day-trading, this type of trading is very popular among the newcomers as well as among experienced traders. Day trading allows for the opportunity to make a profit in a short time with a small amount of funds.
In order to achieve favorable results in an intraday trading it is essential that you make the right forecast as to the price movement, as there are many external factors that cause high volatility in the currency market. So to make your day trading beneficial you have to track the market situation, collate facts and make conclusions about the price behavior of currencies, it is also important to be able to react fast so that you will find entry and exit points quickly at the opening or the closing of trades.
Combining knowledge of technical analysis to be discussed in a later chapter with patience and observance a trader has good chances to earn well with a relatively low risk. There are several strategies of day trading. The most widespread among them is Scalping - a strategy that is offering a fast opening or closing of several day positions. The trader closes trades while making just a few profit pips on each trade while the earnings come from the accumulation of a large number of successfully completed short term trades.
Another popular day trading strategy is news trading. Traders, who choose news trading, monitor the market events permanently, analyze the currencies behavior in different cases. Usually news trading requires an insight learning of market development and a proper trade experience accumulation.
Day trading can be a source of a nice income through the readiness to devote most of your free time to trading. Now here are the advantages and disadvantages of day trading. This style is suitable for traders with endurance and quick reactions. Intraweek Trading Intraweek trade has no such furious market movements as in intraday trade. It may seem that the market is motionless. But it is just at the first sight.
Probably, every trader can find additional styles, but the two that we've mentioned here are probably the most common. Go to Top 7. Forex Trading Risk Management Your first concern when trading Forex should be not to risk too much money on any given trade. Unfortunately, many traders start trading Forex without thinking about the risk that they are taking - only about the potential rewards. If you want to succeed in Forex you must take into consideration the maximum percentage of the total trading money that you should risk in any one trade.
Actually, your ability to limit your losses is equally as critical or even more critical as your success in managing winning trades. The goal of practicing a good Forex money management is to minimize risk and increase payouts. For starters here are 3 quick tips: First, Trading Forex is fun and exciting and money can be made; but you must also keep in mind that like with any other trading there is the risk of losing. Hence, Forex trading rule number one: do not trade with money you can't afford to lose.
Second, never borrow money while trading, trade only with your own money this does not apply to leverage that is provided by your broker. And third, set and stick to a budget. Write it on your forehead if you have to, but no matter what, when you hit that number, quit trading for the day.
Good money management calls for adopting a conservative investment strategy that means that you should never risk your entire capital. When you enter a trade no matter how great it may be , always ensure to only invest conservatively. Forex trading like any other investing is not a sure thing, there is always a risk factor involved. A conservative investment strategy helps you to conserve your money when things go wrong.
Forex trading offers a lot of choices to the trader. A good money management strategy requires diversification. The volatility that accompanies trading currencies is much distinct from say trading commodities as well as stocks. Obviously, the payouts may vary depending on the currency pair which is selected. As the saying goes, never put all your eggs in the same basket. Losses in a trade should be accepted on a positive note.
The effects of a trade that goes against you are able to impact the future or successive trade decisions. Expecting losses whilst investing can assist traders in identifying the areas which may happen to be unnoticed. Losses needs to be seen as a stepping stone instead of having it affect you. Start off slow and scale up - this has a significant role particularly for beginner traders.
Certainly do not fall for the emotions and commit your entire amounts right away on one trade. Investing in small amounts continually helps you to take a self-disciplined approach. The majority of Forex brokers allow for a small minimum trade sum. Use this advantage and be sure to trade with patience. Do not expect to make gains with Forex trading as soon as you made your first deposit.
Trade in small amounts until you have the sense of the assets that you're trading. This can gradually build your self-confidence levels and helps to automatically be aware of the indicators and be able to prepare your investing strategy and ultimately help reduce the losses.
One of the important things that specifies successful traders has to do with using a good money management strategy. There is a fine line between gambling and trading. To 'gamble' is to take a high risk with limited chance of achieving your expected pay out. To 'trade' is to take a calculated risk which will nevertheless provide you with a good return as well as keep you in the game for the long run.
Not only will pursuing this kind of strategy truly enable you to improve your outcomes, it will as well help your mental well being. When starting any type of trading you shouldn't be in a position in which you are sweating on a contract winning.
Aiming and sticking with a strategy which offers successful money management does not just make sure you are not kept up at nighttime; it will as well make sure that a loss will not signal the end of your investing career. Go to Top 8. There are many websites that tell you differently. They make you think that you just have to sign up for an account, start trading and Well, life is not that easy.
Like in many other areas, you need a solid knowledge before you get started. Hopefully you'll get some of it here in this guide. Be aware, though, that just reading this guide will not automatically make you an instant millionaire. For starters you need to learn how to read the charts. Charts are your main weapon in winning the Forex wars But seriously, charts are a vital resource for a serious FX trader, actually any valid strategy involves reading and analyzing charts.
Basically, the charts allow you to predict the future course of a currency by finding patterns in its past price movements, and after all this what we need to win a Forex trade. Don't be intimidated by the charts, actually they are not that hard to read and understand.
Strategies that are based on reading and analyzing charts are part of the technical analysis area. Technical analysis follows a straightforward set of rules freely available on scores of websites. Happily, the simplest rules in charting tend to be the most reliable. In a later chapter we will go over several strategies that you can apply in your trades. The most basic form of technical analysis would be to look for support and resistance levels that markets have struggled to break through in the past.
Charts in this way works best in moderately volatile markets. Technical analysis is also useful in identifying trends. Another simple way of using charts is to look at moving averages, such as the average price over 10 days. The idea is that this gives you a better representation of what the price is doing over a longer period of time. Another simple pattern is based on the so-called relative strength index RSI. This highlights situations where a market is overbought or oversold and warns of a potential reversal in the trend.
The RSI is the total points gained on up days, divided by the total points lost and gained, multiplied by Go to Top 9. Technical Analysis As a Tool for Forex Trading Success In order to be able to develop effective Forex strategies you need to understand technical analysis. This chapter is design to acquaint you with the basic terms and concepts of technical analysis. So what is Technical Analysis? Basically, technical analysis is the studying of investor behavior as well as its influence on the price action of financial instruments.
The primary information which we have to carry out our studies would be the price histories of the instruments, along with time and volume data. All these allow us to make our predictions, depending on objective data. Technical analysis keeps track of and analyzes the ways by which investors behave. This kind of behavior is collectively called sentiment. Technical analysis practitioners believe that this analysis holds the real key to tracking investor sentiment.
In technical analysis we use charts to predict asset price movement and develop our strategies, this is why it is extremely important that you will be knowledgeable as to the various charts types that are being used in technical analysis. Generally there are numerous ways to present price charts. Each has its unique advantages, however overall it is up to the person to determine which offers the best visual picture and is likely to be of most in discovering trends early on.
We will look at the most widely used four types utilized by the pros: Line Charts This is actually the most basic chart format and is produced simply by using a line to join the data points. Here's a sample of a line chart: Bar Charts Bar charts use vertical bars to show the price action of the underlying asset for a specific day, it indicates the lower and the higher price for the day. As their name suggests, bar charts use vertical bars to represent price action for that day, drawn from the lowest price to the highest price.
Bar charts have indicators for the high and the low price of the asset. Bar charts scales can be modified to show daily, weekly or monthly bars. Here is a sample of a bar chart: Candlestick Charts Candlestick charts offer a more detailed visual representation of bar charts. A down day is indicated by a black or shaded box. The "box" shows the open to close range. Candlestick charts are generally plotted over a one-day period but technical analysts also use weekly and monthly candlestick charts to provide a valuable picture of the longer-term price action.
Candlestick charting is one of the oldest methods of technical analysis, with Japanese and Chinese both claiming that rice traders were using candlestick charts over years ago. Candlestick appeal lies in its ability to give a clear visual representation of the price action during a period, leading to easy-to-recognize pattern recognition. Here is a sample of a candlestick chart:; Support and Resistance Being familiar with the models of support and resistance is essential in creating a disciplined Forex trading strategy.
Prices are dynamic, highlighting the ongoing change in the balance between supply and demand. By determining the price levels at which of these balances change we are able to plan the price level where to buy. Even though these levels could be created by the markets subconsciously they signify the collective views of the individuals in the markets.
Support represents the level where buying pressure is powerful enough to absorb and overcome the selling pressure. At price support levels buyers move into the market mopping up the imbalance between supply sellers and demand buyers so that when this happens the price will stop its fall and may probably rise.
Resistance is the opposite of support and is the level where the volume of selling supply exceeds the volume of buying demand. These mini-levels may change frequently but over time a visible pattern comes out and firm levels come to be set up. Here is a sample of support and resistant levels: The Concept of Trend We all know that prices do not rise or fall in a straight line but rather move in a series of zigzags which resembled waves.
Now, the relative positioning of the peaks and troughs in these waves define the trend. For a currency to be in an uptrend, it must make successive higher peaks highs and higher troughs lows. For a currency to be in a downtrend, it must make lower peaks highs and lower troughs lows. Simply by figuring out these types of peaks and troughs, we are able not just to explain the present trend and set it in its historic framework but, equally as important, figure out when it is changing.
We do this by looking at the patterns created by the peaks and troughs. Here's an example of a trend: Moving Averages The moving average is probably the most widely used indicator and is used by technical analysts for numerous sorts of tasks. The primary benefits of moving averages is first of all that they smooth the data and therefore offer a sharper visible picture of the present trend and subsequently, that moving average signals can provide an accurate answer as to what the trend is.
The primary downside is that they are lagging rather than leading indicators. There are actually two major types of moving average: The simple moving average calculates the average price over a specific moving time period. For example, a 50 day simple moving average will calculate the average mean price from the last 50 days closing prices.. The exponential moving average also averages the last x days closes but designates a greater weight to the more recent prices which makes it more sensitive to present price action thereby decreasing the lag impact.
Here's an example of moving averages: Go to Top This guide is intended to serve as a primer and a starting point.
