Online Currency Trading - let "Forex Trading Ideas" show you how

Welcome on Forex-Trading-Ideas

As I was learning Forex online trading, I had a lot of problems finding solid information that would help me to learn the ropes.
With multiple years of background of online trading equities and futures, quite a lot looked familiar.
Yet on the other hand, the differences where big enough that, in retrospect, I probably didn't really know what I was doing.
Apparently currency trading on the spot market is not quite the same as trading futures....
Because of this, I decided to set up this web resource, to help other traders find their way around online currency trading.
Check out how the information on this website can help you trade the currency markets:

Dollar Strength After Fed Holds Rates Static

The US dollar held strong in the early European session. Buoyed by a “no change” in interest rates from the federal reserve yesterday evening.

Euro on the Move After French Election Result Digests

Euro has weakened across the board in the early trading session across Asia and Europe, with the expectant result of the French elections now selling on the news. Whilst many see this result as a positive for the single currency, it seems the result was priced in after opinion polls late last week suggested which way the vote would go.

GBP and Euro Steady As Fed Meeting Draws Close

The EURUSD was steady on Wednesday as it anticipates the US Federal Reserve monetary policy decision, while adjustments to the BoJ monetary policy meant the Yen was in a volatile state on morning trading. There is a strong sense of anxiety around the markets today, not only in Foreign Exchange but also stocks and commodities. It?s no surprise that traders are watching closely the decision by the Fed, whose monetary policy committee (FOMC) will announce at 1800 GMT if it leaves rates unchanged, following two days of meetings. It seems that a rate ...

Busy Week of Data Begins With A Stronger Euro

The Euro is gaining ground versus the US dollar during the morning sessions in Europe. The exchange rate moved up to 1.086 dollars, higher than the close of 1.083 dollars on Friday evening. It?s the start of a busy week with statistics, especially with the US employment report on Friday. The US dollar is currently under strong pressure against major currencies like the euro and a continuation of the upward trend cannot be achieved only through excellent job figures. Investors may see good numbers of non-agricultural jobs as a positive sign ...

GBP Still Weak And Dollar And Euro Gain Ground

The British Pound remains under pressure against the US Dollar after a week of fairly positive data over stateside, with Non Farm Payrolls adding 211k above analysts expected 200k forecast. Labor force participation also rose by a tenth of a percentage point to 62.5%. With some mixed but slightly negative data last week for GBP, with Manufacturing PMI down, Construction PMI down but Services PIM up, the Pound looks weak and could well be heading down to take out last week lows of 1.4894. “The NFP number will be seen as positive ...
