Some investors love the stock market. They live and breathe equities: the excitement, the passion, the devastation of loss, the victory. Some like the options and futures markets, feeling it takes more skill than equities. And, there are some that prefer the global aspects of the FOREX.

But no matter what you prefer, you come across again and again the problem of whether you should trade with the trend, or trade for range. The impact of which method is chosen affects your chance of success, and, the reason we’re all here, your wallet (or purse as the case may be).

But those dealing in the FOREX have a unique advantage in that the market responds well to both styles of trading. So, what exactly is trading trend and range? Let’s take a look.

Following the crowd

Put simply, a trend is the direction a market, or the price of a single asset, takes. Trends vary from short, to long, to longer and to even longer or shorter.

There are trend identifiers that can tell you which way the wind is blowing. The simplest, and probably the best, method is to look at the higher lows in an uptrend and the lower highs when the market or asset is in a downtrend. There are other methods of course. For example, some investors like to define a trend as “a deviation from a range as indicated by the Bollinger Band.” What’s a Bollinger Band, you ask? It’s a band plotted two standard deviations away from a simple moving average.

But in the end, it doesn’t matter how you define it or look at it because the goal is the same: to make money by buying in on a trend early and holding on until the trend gives out and starts slowing. Most traders use tight stop trade orders (an order to buy or sell a security when its price surpasses a certain point), to limit their risk.

This method of trend trading can have huge payoffs. Leverage in the FOREX, because of its size and 24 hour trading, is typically 100:1, meaning that you only need to put down $1 of margin to get $100 worth of currency control. Given that the stock market is 2:1 and the futures market which is usually 25:1, you can see why you can make a huge amount of money with trend trading in the FOREX.

The Long Term

But trend trading isn’t for everybody. It takes discipline, with many traders meeting 20 or even 30 stop calls before they can catch a trend. If you get emotional about it and try to fight the market, you could lose your shirt.

That’s where range trading comes in. The range trader doesn’t care about direction. He trades knowing that no matter where the currency goes, it will come back to where it started. Range trading is based on the theory that prices will trade at the same levels many times, and the range trader will be there to gather up those profits from the oscillations in price.

But range trading isn’t free and clear either. A range trader will have to have a lot of money they are willing to risk to put the practice into play successfully. But, with more money (in the case of the FOREX, more leverage), there’s more chance of the trader’s enemy (i.e. emotion) coming into play. Positions can go against you many times in a row before you get a profit, and many traders just don’t have the stomach to watch their hard earned cash dwindling while they hang on to the idea of profits in the future. Also, if you’re not careful, with more than a few losses in a row you could trigger a margin call before you’ve had a chance for the currency to produce profits for you.

But, don’t despair. Many FOREX dealers have come up with a solution: they allow you to trade in mini-lots. By trading in mini-lots you can withstand many more drawdowns before triggering a stop order. This allows you to withstand more losses in a row before a margin call is issued.

One or the Other

Regardless of which method the trader chooses, the FOREX market is ready and able for both. As long as the trader remains disciplined and realizes that there will be some losses no matter what they do, they will improve their chances of fattening their bank accounts.

Everyone is becoming curious about Forex trading. It can earn you a lot of cash, but it can also cause you to lose loads of money. It is a high risk market, but with automated Forex trading systems and a few basics, you can become a profitable trader. There are five important aspects of Forex trading; knowledge, budget, broker, discipline, and tools.

Knowledge: Before beginning to Forex trade you have to know what you are doing. No one jumps in a lake without first learning to swim unless they are suicidal. Take the time to learn the language and different strategies, and practice before investing thousands.

Budget: You cannot trade with little or no money. You need to know how much you can afford to lose before deciding how much to invest. Regular accounts cost a lot of money to open, but there are smaller accounts such as mini and micros that allow you to trade at a much lower lever. Some automated Forex trading programs can get you started for as little as $500.

Broker: A broker for Forex trading is the middle man between the trader and the currency market. They complete requested transactions for the buyer or seller. In order to trade, you must have a foreign currency broker registered with the Futures Commission Merchant. These brokers are regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and are typically associated with a large bank.

Discipline: You have to set limits and be prepared to stick to them. You can get in deep fast without set limits. Automatic Forex trading allows you to program in your stops, decreasing human emotion and error. When emotion becomes involved with any gamble, forex trading included, bad things can happen. You also need confidence to pull off risky trades, hesitating will often result in a loss.

Tools: You have to have the right help to trade correctly and make a profit. No Forex trading software is foolproof. They are not guarantees to making money, they are tools! Never-the-less Automated Forex trading has many benefits that will favorably increase your chances of making money and is well worth looking into.

Don’t hesitate to research forex trading online or ask for help understanding terms, forex trading strategies, or quotes. The more you know before you begin, the better off you will be.

programs like can help manage your Forex account and free up lots of time that you can spend golfing instead of paying homage to your computer monitor.

Would you like to know more about how the Forex Ace system works, and whether or not it is profitable? I used to have a lot of difficulty finding my trades, and never really had a systematic way of trading. As a result, I was not really making money out of the Forex markets even though I was placing many trades a day. Eventually, I was recommended to try the Forex Ace System, and I am going to explain some of the aspects of this currency trading system and my experience with it.

1. Do You Really Need a Mechanical System Like The Forex Ace?

I was glad that Forex Ace System has been designed to be completely mechanical that does not require any discretion on my part. If you are not an experienced Forex trader, it is highly recommended that you have a set of step-by-step rules to follow or you might end up losing money due to your emotions. Forex Ace has been great at removing my indecisions and emotions from my trades, and I have actually been able to achieve much better trading results now.

2. What’s The Worst Way to Trade the Forex Markets?

I personally know of people who trade with a bunch of indicators on their screens and yet they do not make any money. They may start looking at trends and then try to confirm it with another 3 indicators before looking at the price of the currency before entering their trades. Eventually, they find that they cannot enter many profitable trades because their indicators are always lagging.

3. How Does the Forex Ace System Work Then?

This system is a compilation of the fastest rules to identify swings in prices to help you find trades. Another good thing is that it requires very little time per day to find trades, and most have them have been very profitable for me.

Recession word itself enough to create a panic in the stomach of the whole world. If someone gets up and checks the empirical meaning of recession in the good lexicon, he or she will feel something disgusting about it; fear factor will dance in front of him or her. It looks like coming to hell just after knocking the door of the zenith.

At this juncture world is confronting the same fearful word “Recession” in empirical way. The world had good news that U.S. GDP (Gross Domestic Product) has grown 3.3% annually in second quarter of year 2008 but it was just like an oasis and faded away when US government has given whopping jobless claims 444,000 on last Thursday. Rising inflation, housing slowdown, 16 year low housing prices, diminishing industrial growth, Federal Reserve policy on interest rate all are rubbing salt on the wounds. Now US government is pondering over the Fannie and Freddie financials and set to take over the housing mortgage giants.

It is not only United States of America but whole world starting from African countries to European countries, which covers Asia too. Markets from New Zealand to India suffered a sell-off Friday, September 5, 2008, with as many as five benchmark indices set 52-week lows, as investors dumped stocks on concerns about weakening growth prospects and uncertainty over the global economy.

Socio-political issues has created unusual troubles in South Africa, which is known as the most prosperous country in the African continent and precious metal mining hub across the globe, had reeled on august 6, 2008, when rand has fallen 1.90% against the USD due to trade union nationwide strike to protest against the food and electricity prices. State military of Nigeria said, “Blast was not an accident but deliberate sabotage by a group protesting the alleged nonpayment of fees by the energy company to the local population.” Nigeria social turmoil is on acme and any time untoward happening may occur that can fuel, for the time being subsidized, crude oil prices. Zimbabwe political instability continues to romp over the constructive activities in the region. The inflation in Zimbabwe jumped to over 11,250,000% in June. Rebels in Kenya are also contributing enough in poorly shaped African economic condition.

Now look at Asian economies, first comes China where everyone was thinking that after the Olympics china will resume the economic work on growth agenda and the demand for the commodities like copper, aluminum and steel will rise but it was a distant dream all base metals are setting new lows on commodity exchanges. China also eyeing on currency markets and all set to devalue the Yuan against its rival currencies in order to enhance the export growth which has become less lucrative for the exporters. World Bank has trimmed China’s growth rate to 9.60% from earlier 10.80% for the current fiscal. China needs to generate more than a million jobs every year and it is very difficult without double digit growth rate on the cards.

Japan, The land of rising sun, is also undergoing through tremendous inflationary pressure which was previously known for deflation. Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda resigned after less than a year in office. His government failed to rein in inflation. The rise in inflation has been a trauma for a country that has spent the last decade grappling with deflation. Core consumer prices were up 2.4% in July 2008 from a year earlier, a panic bounce since 1997, and many Japanese have clamped down on spending. Japanese finance ministry has already given cowardice statement over the current year GDP growth rate. Experts say Japan has already slipped into recession and no one is predicting growth above 1% this year.

HengSeng, the Hong Kong stock index, has broken the 20,000 level. South Korea is under the scan of developed world where nuclear energy matters continues to harass the top officials of the nation. Korean Stock index is also not showing any glimpse of breaking upper records.

India’s economy grew at its lowest rate in the first quarter of financial year 2008-09 since last three years. The Reserve Bank of India is all set to rein into record high inflation by applying tight credit policy which remained above 12% level for the past few weeks. Annual growth slowed to 7.90 % in the first quarter of 2008-09 which ended on June 30, significantly lower than the 8.80 % rate reported for the January – March quarter.

Europe also nowhere different at present whole Europe is combating with rising inflation and fresh downward revisions in the growth rate. European inflation accelerated to the fastest pace in almost 16 years to a record high 4% earlier before arriving at 3.8%. Consumer business confidence index is also recorded significant decline and Economic confidence fell in August to 88.80. Brussels has revised the Euro zone growth rate downwards to1.80% from earlier November estimate 2.20%. Economic experts offering a faded hope and a few of them declared that next revision would be 1.30%.

Now the world is witnessing a global slowdown which can be said recession but optimistic experts say it is temporary and can be worked out with revamped financial policies. But at this juncture when the status quo is not allowing the central banks to act any way, one side inflation is rising which is not encouraging the central banks for rate cut and other side slowing economic growth is not supporting the rate hike. Hence forth in the last week Bank of England and European Central Bank kept their interest rates undisturbed, 5% and 4.25% respectively. United States Federal Reserve also kept its rate unchanged in last meeting.

Then utmost what can happen?

I think US credit market turmoil and high inflation is nowhere supportive in economic way for the world. Russia- Georgia tension, US-Iran-Israel issue and destructive happenings like terrorist attacks, natural calamities and political turmoil all over world is not foreboding good for the world.

The stock markets, commodity markets and financial instruments are heading towards south and not left even an iota of positive happening. Dow Jones, Nasdaq, FTSE, BSE, CAC, KOSPI, HengSeng, Nikkei, Shanghai all these stock exchanges shed their most of last year gains. Simultaneously commodity markets also near to nadir gold, the safe heaven commodity, has fallen more than $200 US after reaching $988US earlier this year. Silver is already near to set a new of the year. Likewise copper, platinum and aluminum are also fallen to lower extreme. Euro, USD, GBP, and Japanese Yen are behaving in the strange way and creating turmoil in the fundamentals of other financial instruments and markets. At present market elements are fighting for the worst rank. If the currency exchange rates changes more than 10% within a week,

The Raison d’être behind whole scenario of financial instability is that, fundamentals have not been respected during last year across the world. Investors have lost confidence over the period of wrong happenings that led to unsystematic investment in the financial markets. As far US, the world largest economy is concern until presidential election (new President) glimpse of hope is far away since it requires a major policy change. If same situation prevails shortly world may face biggest foul turnaround.

The whole world need to get together and must make necessary changes in the economical and political policies in order to overcome from this current imbroglio. The fundamentals of the market i.e. Demand and Supply has to be restored. People must realize the real money. G-7 meeting proposals have to be implemented in order to soothe the boiling intricacy of the world.

What can an investor do?

A good investor must workout different strategy for the investment. Meantime investors can stay away from the paper stocks and they can invest in the real asset value market viz. real estate, and commodities which runs on fundamentals rather than speculations. This is the best time to invest in housing because the prices are at possible lowest end. Markets with real assets value will perform better than paper assets in coming year.

The advance technique on excess proceeds is a low effort technique, but certainly earns money. It simply requires you to buy a tax delinquent property before the auction sale and have the deed recorded on time. No more, no less.

By default, a tax delinquent property, say, worth $100,000 with $100,000 taxes will owe the owner 5,000 times more with penalties, interest and fees. This additional amount usually is estimated at $15,000 and is quickly accrued to the owner. The state gets this $15,000 and bidding usually starts at this. Some states start with no minimum bids like New York. Some start usually high in a highly competitive bidding. In metropolitan, bidding usually starts at $70,000. Thus, when the auctioned property is sold at $70,000 and the state only wants $15,000, there is excess proceeds, which is $55,000.

Who gets the excess proceeds?

By law in most counties, the owners can apply to get the excess proceeds at the time of auction sale. To obtain the $55,0000, the owner will have the deeds recorded at the time or before the auction sale. Otherwise, you lose the opportunity of getting the excess proceeds.

A classic experience that I have is when I bought 4 properties together in California before the tax sale on a Saturday. Each property had around $3,000-4,000 worth of back taxes attached to them. I signed a notarized deed on Thursday and have it recorded on Friday, but ownership transfer happens when the recorded deed is delivered to new owner. I let the auction passed and 1 of my 4 new properties was sold at $8,000. Considering the state only owed lesser at $3,000 plus, I supposedly was entitled to get an exceed proceed of $5,000 if the recorded deed was only delivered to me on Friday or Saturday.

By lesson, your deed must be recorded at the time of sale to obtain the excess proceeds and avoid from losing it. Buy the property before the auction. Do not redeem the property. Just let the property go for auction. Make sure your deed is recorded before or at the time of sale then apply for exceed proceeds and get it!

In your search for information on investing you will come across many articles, brochures, and sources that outline opportunities for you to make money. Some of these will be truthful and others will be misleading. Just how do you tell the difference?

Look for experience

Many reputable people and firms will offer information on investment opportunities. The main way to find out if the offer is genuine is to look at the structure of the organisation that is making the offer. You need to go into the historical results and structure of the organisation.

In Australia, investment advisors need to be licensed. How long has the firm you are considering been licensed? If the people or firm have only been licensed for a year, then they have no previous historical results that you can look at. It might be wise to review them at a time further down the track when they have performance results to show you. Look for experience.

Beware The Unbelievable

In your research travels, you will come across all sorts of offers. Some are too good to be true. Often they are just that. Unfortunately, there are those people that become trapped in financial exploits and need money to bail themselves out. Often they need or want your money. These are dangerous investments. It takes a shrewd business person to rescue a financially exposed business opportunity. These are not investments for beginners. You may be offered ownership rights, with the majority of profit outcomes as a lure into financially rescuing a business opportunity. You see all the outcomes as positive, and are rarely aware of the downsides of costs and viability. A financial disaster awaits you.

Misleading Headlines

Headlines are meant to grab your attention. Brochures and advertisements rely on this. However with the misleading headline, once your attention is gained, the explanation behind the headline is never reached or given in the follow up. Headlines that state “Massive profits!” and “Opportunities never to be repeated!” are marketing tools that can be used to mislead the investor into believing that easy profits are to be made. The main question to ask here is that if easy profits are to made, has the person offering the product or service made the profits they are talking about, and if so why are needing investors to make the same profits? What’s in it for them? This cautious attitude will save you from many bad investments.

Good Information – Bad Information.

In summary, the three main points to look at are ;

1) Who

Who is giving you this information, what are the history and track performance records that can be verified?

2) What

What is on offer and is it too good to believe. It often will be.

3) Why

Why is the offer being given to you? Has the person making the offer completed and made the same profits that they are offering you?

4) When.

When is the offer expiring? Do not get pushed into acting by an expiration date. This is often used to stop you properly exploring the background information you need to make your decisions.
