I'm here to share some of my tips so you can trade currency online. With the birth and expansion of the internet into most people's homes, this currency trading market has opened up to a new world of people. This makes it an exciting and profitable way to make money from home.
What should be the most important point I trade on?
You need to understand the basics of a trade because it becomes very easy to identify. We are always looking for the best buy. When I goto the grocery store, I'm looking for deals and bargains for my shopping needs. No one wants to spend more money than they have to. The problem is that you're consuming and this isn't what you're doing in the currency market, you're trading.
To profit in a trade, you need to sell for more than you buy. This makes the exit price far more important than the entry price. Entry price is irrelevant if you expect the exit price to be much higher. If you have a currency that costs $10 per unit and it is expected to go up 10%, that is far better than a currency worth a penny that is expected to go up 5%.
What are central banks role in the market?
To put it bluntly, central banks control the amount of money that enters and for the most part the money that leaves it. This means they are the gatekeepers of the supply of money. Since money is still governed by supply and demand, this makes the price vulnerable to central bank policies.
The way they change the amount of currency entering the economy is by changing interest rates. You'll often hear on the news that the “Fed" has cut interest rates or something along those lines. This signifies a change in the amount of money entering the economy. A cut means more money is coming in, so more supply means a lower currency price. A raise means less money is coming in, so less supply means a higher currency price.
