Profit From The Carry Trade In Currency Trading

If you propose to trade currency for the longer term, such as I do, rather than as a scalper who trades the market hundreds of times as day, then a key element to your success will be in understanding the carry trade. This provides trading opportunities due to the difference in interest rates between the various currencies. Each country and therefore currency has its own interest rate, which is then converted into borrowing and lending rates by all the banks. When a bank lends you money the rates are always higher than when it borrows (like a spread).

The Forex Broker - Friend or Foe?

For traders who are new to currency trading, it can be quite a confusing experience, not least because everything seems to be FREE!!

There are a whole variety of factors that have to be considered before you can answer such a question with a simple yes or no. Let me explain. For those of us in the Nothern hemisphere it is proabably much harder to achieve than for those in the Southern hemisphere - the reason is very simple, but ironically it is one of the great myths that is often sold by brokerages and ‘experts’ selling courses, that you can trade currency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Which Chart Timescale Should I Use For My Currency Trading?

The above question is one I am often asked and it is so fundamental to the success of your trading that I thought I would spend a few minutes this morning just explaining how and why it is so important. Firstly, I am assuming that you are a chartist, like me, in other words you believe that virtually all the trading information you require is contained in the candlestick charts. Your trading decisions are based on the interpretation of the candle formations, combined with other simple technical indicators, such as moving averages and volume.
