Four Alluring Forex Bonuses

by Sean on August 7, 2016

A forex bonus is free money that a forex broker gives you to trade using its trading platform. The only string attached is that you can’t take out the amount unless you trade a certain amount of positions. There are a number of forex bonuses and not every bonus is the same. They vary in size, type and bonus clearing requirements.  And obviously each of them has its own pros and cons depending on the amount of your trading capital, trading strategy and trading experience.

There are usually four types of forex bonuses featured by different forex brokers –

    1. Forex pending bonus
    2. Forex no deposit bonus
    3. Forex instant bonus
    4. Forex reload bonus

Forex refers to an open, global market that allows the trading of various forms of currencies against one another. The Forex market is also a place where consumers can trade both local and foreign currencies with the purpose of making profits as the market moves up and down, sometimes hourly. Depending upon the currencies selected, Forex can be an extremely effective and profitable investment for those with the know-how or willingness to study and understand the market and the concept of supply and demand. Gold trading on the other hand, while not Forex exactly, is still a form of trading in an OTC (over the counter) market, but instead focuses on precious metals trading. [click to read…]

Creating an investment portfolio is essential to ensure you and your family have financial security now and in the future, but trying to create that portfolio on your own can be overwhelming and confusing, especially if you are new to the world of investments. For this reason, many people choose to hire a financial adviser. Before hiring an adviser, be sure you are asking the right questions to ensure your financial peace of mind.

Decide What You Need From Your Adviser

No two financial planners are created alike. Some of them are more experienced in one area than another, so it is important to consider what you need before hiring someone. What are your financial goals? Do you want to consolidate and pay off debt, or would you like to learn how to invest in the stock market? If you want to focus on more than one area of investment planning, seek an adviser who has experience in several areas. [click to read…]

Tax refunds are great, aren’t they? They feel like free money, and most of us are all too willing to treat them as such, splurging them on things we want but wouldn’t normally buy.

However, tax refunds are not actually free. They’re a repayment of extra tax you’ve paid, without earning interest on it. In 2015, the average tax refund was a little over $3,000, so make up for lost time by investing your refund in something that gives you long-term benefits.

Here are three major areas to consider:

  • Insurance protection
  • Emergency savings
  • Extra funds for fun activities or your own interests

We’ll look at these in more detail below.

Investment Wisdom For Every Age

by Guest on April 16, 2016

No matter what your age, it’s never too late to start investing for your future. Your investment needs and investment strategies might be different depending on your age, but investing in general is a good financial move. The purpose of this article is to provide some investment wisdom for people of any age.

1 Ask Questions

It’s okay to ask questions about what you do not understand. Even experts didn’t start out as experts. They had to learn from ground zero just like everyone else. If you have funds through an investment firm, ask them questions because they want to help you – when you make money, they make money. Other sources of education are libraries, the internet, and friends or colleagues. So, go ahead and educate yourself. Just be careful to verify advice that you are given as some well-meaning friends or colleagues may be giving misguided advice.

2 Diversify

You’ve probably heard the expression, “Don’t put all of your eggs into one basket.” When it comes to investing in stocks and mutual funds, this is good advice. If you only invest in one company and that company goes bankrupt, you could lose your entire investment. It is best to invest in at least a couple of different options so that if one isn’t going well, you have others that probably are.

by Sean on March 10, 2016

You’ll find many CFD (contract for difference) contract trading tips, strategies and ideas on different sites that claim to transform you to a pro-trader overnight.

There are certain rules and some proven strategies, whose proper application by the trader can not only help in increasing the equity curve but also help in restricting loss (which is an inherent part of every kind of trading) within a certain extent. In this blog post, some of the most effective CFD trading tips are shared so that they can succeed more times than they fail.

Trading Tips #1 – PPC Formula or Preserve Precious Capital

This idea of trading has been taken from the book “High Probability Trading”, written by Marcel Link. Per his capital preservation and money management suggestion, every trader should first try to protect his/her money from any kind of loss and then think about profits. Marcel says a trader must try to preserve his capital first and keep the losses to small sizes.
