Currency markets have grown significantly in the last one decade and have thus become a lucrative investment channel for many people who are average risk takers and yet want a bigger return on their capital. Sometimes called forex trading, currency trading operates on the basic principle of buying low and selling high. The only difference in this case is that the individual is buying currency and not goods or services. As is common with stocks, the price of buying and selling currencies fluctuates regularly, availing an opportunity for the shrewd investor to make huge profits. The concept is as simple as basic arithmetic, such that everyone, just about anyone, can grasp and master it to stardom. The beginning point of currency trading is education through research and consultation, whereby the investor learns all there is to learn about the currency markets. The internet is rich with...

in Currency Market, Hot Currency Exchange

The US corporate finance sector has undergone thick turmoil in the last one decade. To an extent, the current chaos should have been seen coming, from afar. With consecutive catastrophic losses, rising and overpowering unemployment, and little government control in how institutions bear risk, it just had to happen. Bad stuff has happened, jobs have been lost, careers thwarted, and portfolios shredded. Yet the worst has not happened and still can. Realizing this, the US government has seen the need to bailout some of the key financial institutions and help them regain a footing in the cutthroat market. The economy is very sore now, having watched the crisis unfold and then begin to bite. As such, the US Treasury bailout plan has a multifaceted role of rescuing banks, protecting their consumers, and restoring the confidence of investors in the market. These three roles must be met and...

Investment Basics of Money Flow

Money Flow (MF) can be assessed and technically analyzed using various component indicators. These indicators are vital to an investor when deciding when to make entries and exits into a specific trading program. Money Flow, as an indicator, is synonymously used to refer to the Money Flow Index (MFI). It was Marc Chaikin who developed the money flow theorem, using both the price and the volume as a calculating principle of the price action in any trading issue. When the results of a particular trading day or period have been calculated, the numbers are compared with those of previous day or period to establish whether the MF gained or lost for that particular day or period. The flow can also be calculated using the Relative Strength Index (RSI), which only differs from the MFI in that MFI accounts for both price and volume, whereas RSI only factors price as the variable. To calculate...

Islamic Finance World in a Scholarly Approach

Most investors outside the corridors of Islamic finance have a negative perception of trading opportunities in Islamic nations. This has been cultivated by a history of limitations posed by religious principles applied in almost all sectors of the market. It has been, and still is, a mandatory requirement that all trade be conducted in strict accordance with the Islamic law. Re-evaluation of these requirements has been ongoing, following the influence of western markets. Consequently, there has been a redefinition of Islamic finance principles to an extent that offers non-Muslim investors the go-ahead to seek markets in areas predominantly Muslim. To understand this liberal but silent movement of the Islamic finance world, a scholarly approach is the most ideal. Islamic economics as a term can be used to refer to the application of the Islamic law in the conventional economic activity...

Traditionally, the only sources from which a new investor could get a broker were through broker rating guides and customer feedback surveys. This simple means are getting far outdated, especially in this information age, and better approaches need to be adopted. But the guiding principle to be upheld all through the process of choosing a broker should be to identify that particular broker who is optimally and specifically suited to your investment needs. A perfect broker will always be available to answer your calls, spend some minutes explaining the new complex stuff, charge moderate commissions, and then look out for you when something worth considering is coming up, or when hell is just about to break loose. Additionally, you need a guy who knows the game, who has the training and the experience, and fully certified by all relevant bodies. You will be wise to insist on this,...

Emerging Facts on the Latin finance world

Some time in September 2008, Brazil’s president, Luiz Ignácio Lula da Silva was asked by journalists what he thought about the global economic crises we are going through. He replied by saying, “When people ask me about an economic crisis in the world, I tell them, go ask George Bush. After all, it is his crisis and not mine.” Such has been more or less the attitude of the Latin finance world to contemporary issues and developments. Whether described as indifference or whatever else, Latin finance has had a hands-off policy of administrating growth and development for a long time now. It is easy to understand why this delusion has been perpetrated in the region about the non-volatile status of their financial institutions. Policymakers and key economists on the world stage have been full of praise for Latin America’s increasing financial independence and industrial maturity. Of repute...
