(((((((Understanding the Basics of Forex Trading)))))))

With the advent of globalization and communication technology, traders now enjoy the ability to profit across all countries and economies. Regardless if you are a trader sitting in New York or Shanghai, you can grow your portfolio by capitalizing upon the Forex trading of the Japanese Yen or the Indian Rupee.

Subsequently, the foreign currency exchange, also known as Forex trading, has grown to be the largest financial market - with over 3 trillion US dollars traded each day. Most of this Forex market is traded by private investors and traders, who see the ripe opportunities that exist in Forex trading.

The basics of the Forex trading market - The Forex trading market operates 24 hours a day, allowing traders to capitalize upon profit opportunities throughout the world. Whether by telephone or the internet, the Forex trading market is constantly connected, affording currency traders the ability to seize profitable trades, regardless of their local time zones, market hours, or country boundaries.

The foreign currency trading market is commonly referred to as the interbank market. Forex trading involves the buying of one currency and the selling of another. The particular currency combination is referred to as a cross (for example, the Euro/GB Pound, or the US Dollar/Japanese Yen.).

Types of Forex trading strategies - The largest volume of trades occurs in what is called a spot market. It is referred to as the spot market because trades are instantaneously settled, or "on the spot."

Another type of trade using Forex trading strategies involves "forward outbreaks." Although the trade itself is carried out immediately, settlement on the value date involves a small interest rate calculation which is usually insignificant, unless the position is held for a long time. The interest rate differential varies based on the currencies traded. This differential in interest rates between the two countries involved can produce a positive or a negative differential, which is calculated and added to your account.

Increasing your Forex trading power - Because Forex trading is done on margin, the amount of assets controlled is far greater than the funds in an account. As fluctuations in currency exchange rates on any particular day are small, the fact that trading is done on margin allows for profitable Forex trading strategies. None the less, it should be noted that trading on margin can greatly increases your risks. Because of this aspect, any new investor should thoroughly learn Forex trading through Forex courses.

The Benefits of Forex trading - Forex trading offers multiple advantages to other financial investment markets. One of the principal advantages is the fact that trading occurs around the clock, allowing the investor with the appropriate Forex trading strategies to immediately take advantage of opportunities. The Forex market is the most liquid in the world, allowing for price stability and narrow spreads.

Since currency exchange rates are always changing, Forex trading opportunities are continuous, regardless of which direction the currency is moving.

The interbank market is also often traded without commissions, which makes it attractive to an investor who wants to trade frequently. However, for ease of transaction, Forex trading also occurs on futures exchanges.

However, as with all currency trading strategies, there is no reward without some risk. Any investor contemplating foreign currency trading should thoroughly learn Forex trading utilizing studying Forex exchange courses before implementing their Forex trading strategy.

You can make money buying and selling the same currencies at the same time. We are now coming to the heart of how to make money using the no stop, hedged, forex trading strategy. In the previous articles in this series we discussed trading without stops, not being concerned about which way the price goes and places to cash in on profitable trades. We are now going to explain how it is possible to make money buying and selling at the same time using the grid structure.

One should always be able to cash in at a gain no matter which way the market moves when trading the no stop, hedged grid trading system. The only way this is logically possible is that one would have a buy and a sell transaction active at the same time. This sounds like trading suicide to most traders but let's take a closer look.

Let's assume that a forex trader starts trading with a sell (sell 1) and a buy (buy 1) when the price is at a level of say 1.0100. The price then moves to level 1.0200. The buy transaction will then show a gain of 100 pips. The sell will be negative by 100 pips. At this stage we would close our positive transacion and add 100 pips to our account. The sell is now however carrying a loss of -100 pips. The grid system requires one to make sure that the trader can cash in on any movement in the market. To do this one would again enter into a sell (sell 2) and a buy (buy 2) deal at this level (level 1.0200).

Now for convenience let's assume that the price moves back to level 1.0100 (the starting point).

The second sell (sell 2) has now gone positive by 100 pips and the second buy (buy 2) is carrying a loss of -100 pips. According to the rule of cashing in positive deals at grid levels you would close the sell (sell 2) at a gain of 100 pips which you can now add to your account. This makes the total cashed in at this point 200 pips (sell 2 and buy 1). Now the first sell that remained active has moved from level 1.0200 where it was -100 to level 1.0100 where it is now breaking even.

The four Forex trading deals now magically show a gain when added together:- 1st buy (buy 1) cashed in +100, 2nd sell (sell 2) cashed in +100, 1st sell (sell 1) now breaking even and the 2nd buy (buy 2) is -100. The gives a total profit of 100 pips. We can own cash in all our deals and celebrate as we have made a profit of 100 pips.

Please make sure that you are comfortable with the above calculations. You may have to reread and draw the movements on a piece of paper to make sure you understand the concept.

This formation is the 100% retracement formation where the price moves up to a grid level and then returns back to the starting grid level and results in a nice gain for the forex trader. There are many other market movements that turn this strange "buy and sell at the same time" activity into gains. The next article will cover the 50% retracement formation which produces the same amount of profit.

There will be much more on the no stop, hedged grid trading system in future articles in this directory. Don't miss them.
