Binary options are a good way to make easy money. You need to predict whether the option price will go up or down. If you’re right, you could increase the value of your investment by up to 95%. And because binary options have a short time to maturity, it is easy to make multiple profitable trades per day. If you never traded binary options, the best way is to start with binary options no deposit bonus.

Can you Make Money Online with Binary Options No Deposit Bonuses? The answer is YES!

choose the best binary options no deposit bonus - 

The answer is not yes !

the answer is that binaries are the absolute worst way to try to profit from the markets.

you have to get 2 things right- the direction

this makes it more difficult

You can mention that it's an alternative to options

But it's better for people to do their own research on that

I will not spen my time explaining it because most people who sign up for binaries are losers

And a loser is a loser

Anyone who promotes binaries knows this

Binary Options Fraud

A Word of Warning to the Investing Public

139彩彩票登录Stock image depicting stock prices with a red arrow pointing down and a green arrow pointing up in foreground.


Stock options. It’s a pretty common investment term meaning, in general, that one party sells or offers to another party the opportunity to invest by buying a particular stock at an agreed upon price within a certain period of time. All perfectly legal and highly regulated—and if the investor takes advantage of the opportunity and the stock performs well, there’s money to be made. And if the stock doesn’t perform well, the investor knew the risk.

But here’s another similar-sounding financial term that the public should be wary of—binary options. While some binary options are listed on registered exchanges or traded on a designated contract market and are subject to oversight by U.S. regulators like the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), much of the binary options market operates through websites that don’t comply with U.S. regulations. And many of those unregulated websites are being used by criminals outside the U.S. as vehicles to commit fraud.  


Binary options fraud is a growing problem and one that the FBI currently has in its crosshairs. In 2011, our Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) received four complaints—with reported losses of just more than $20,000—from binary options fraud victims. Fast forward five years, and the IC3 received hundreds of complaints with millions of dollars in reported losses during 2016. And those numbers only reflect victims who reported being fleeced to the IC3—the true extent of the fraud, which has victims around the world, isn’t fully known. Some European countries have reported that binary options fraud complaints now constitute 25 percent of all the fraud complaints received.

What exactly is a binary option? It’s a type of options contract in which the payout depends entirely on the outcome of a yes/no proposition, typically related to whether the price of a particular asset—like a stock or a commodity—will rise above or fall below a specified amount. Unlike regular stock options, with binary options you’re not being given the opportunity to actually buy a stock or a commodity—you’re just betting on whether its price will be above or below a certain amount by a certain time of the day.

For example: You expect the price of an individual stock will be above $80 at 3:30 p.m. today. So you buy a binary option that allows you to place this bet at a cost of $60. If, at 3:30 p.m., the stock price is $80.01, your payout is $100, for a profit of $40. If the price of the stock at 3:30 is $79.99, you lose your $60. Of course, you can buy multiple binary options, which can significantly increase your winnings as well as your losses.

So where does the fraud come into it? The perpetrators behind many of the binary options websites, primarily criminals located overseas, are only interested in one thing—taking your money. Complaints about their activities generally fall into one of three categories:

The perpetrators behind many of the binary options websites, primarily criminals located overseas, are only interested in one thing—taking your money.

  • Refusal to credit customer accounts or reimburse funds to customers. This is usually done by cancelling customers’ withdrawal requests, ignoring customer phone calls and e-mails, and sometimes even freezing accounts and accusing the customers themselves of fraud.  
  • Identity theft. Representatives of binary options websites may falsely claim that the government requires photocopies of your credit card, passport, driver’s license, utility bills, or other personal data. This information could potentially be used to steal your identity.
  • Manipulation of trading software. Some of these Internet trading platforms may be reconfiguring the algorithms they use in order to purposely generate losing trades, often by distorting prices and payouts. For example, if a customer has a winning trade, the expiration time is extended until the trade becomes a loss.  

Fraudulent binary options website operators go to great lengths to recruit investors. They advertise their platforms—often on social networking sites, various trading websites, message boards, and spam e-mail—with big promises of easy money, low risk, and superior customer service. Potential investors are also cold-called from boiler room operations, where high-pressure salespeople use banks of phones to make as many calls as possible to offer “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunities.


What’s being done to combat binary options fraud? The FBI currently has a number of ongoing binary options fraud cases, working with partners like the CFTC and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). And this past January, the Bureau organized the 2017 Binary Options Fraud Summit held at Europol in The Hague, bringing together law enforcement and regulators from throughout North America and Europe to discuss the growing binary options fraud problem.

Special Agent Milan Kosanovich, who works out of our Criminal Investigative Division’s Complex Financial Crimes Unit, was one of the FBI’s representatives at this gathering. “The summit,” he said, “gave all of us the chance to sit down and talk about what we’ve discovered through our respective binary options fraud investigations, where the challenges are, and how we can all work together.”  

One of the biggest challenges law enforcement faces, according to Kosanovich, is the fact that the scammers are sophisticated and have operations spanning multiple countries. “So the key to addressing this type of fraud,” he continued, “is national and international coordination between regulatory agencies, law enforcement, and the financial industry.”    

Another important factor, said Kosanovich, is investor awareness and education. “Investors need to be aware of the significant potential for fraud on binary options websites, and they need to make sure they do their due diligence before ever placing that first trade or bet.”


What Can You Do to Avoid Being Victimized

  • Make sure that the binary options trading platform you’re interested in has registered its offer and sale of its products with the SEC. (Registration provides investors with key information about the terms of the products being offered). To do this, you can use the Security Exchange Commission’s (SEC) .
  • Check to see if the trading platform itself is registered as an exchange at the .
  • Ensure that the trading platform is a designated contract market by checking the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CTFC) website. Thousands of entities promote binary options trading in the U.S., but only two are currently authorized to do so by the CFTC.
  • Check out the registration status and background of any firm or financial professional you are considering dealing with. You can do this through the Financial Industry Regulatory Agency’s and the .
  • Take a look at the CFTC’s , which contains the names of unregistered foreign entities that CFTC has reason to believe are soliciting and accepting funds from U.S. residents at a retail level for, among other things, binary options.
  • Finally, don’t invest in something you don’t understand. If you can’t explain the investment opportunity in a few words and in an understandable way, you may need to reconsider the potential investment.

Binary options scams

3-4 minutes

Update: The sale of all binary options to retail consumers is now . If you are offered binary options, it is probably a scam.  

Binary options are a form of fixed-odds betting. Typically, a trade involves whether an event will happen or not (for example, will the price of a particular share or asset go up) and the outcome is either yes or no.

If the investor is correct, they ‘win’ and should see a return on their investment; if they’re wrong, they lose their full investment.

From 2 April 2019, we permanently banned firms from selling binary options in the UK. 

This follows the European Securities and Markets Authority’s (ESMA) temporary ban on the sale of binary options to retail consumers across the EU, including the UK, since 2 July 2018. Our ban includes certain binary options that were excluded from ESMA’s temporary ban.

How binary options scams work

Binary options fraudsters often advertise on social media – the ads link to websites that are well-designed and professional looking.

The firms operating the scams tend to be based outside the UK but often claim to have a UK presence, often a prestigious City of London address.

Scam firms may manipulate software to distort prices and payouts – they then suddenly close consumers’ trading accounts, refusing to pay back their money.

How to protect yourself

Be wary of adverts online and on social media promising high returns from binary options trading.

You should only deal with financial services firms that are authorised by us. As the sale of binary options to retail consumers is now banned any firm offering binary options services is probably unauthorised or a scam.

If you have any doubts, check the to ensure a firm is authorised. You can also check our of firms to avoid.

You should check the firm isn’t a clone firm by asking for their firm reference number (FRN) and contact details and then calling them back on the switchboard number on our – never use a link in an email or website from the firm offering you an investment.

Always be wary if you’re contacted out of the blue, pressured to invest quickly or promised returns that sound too good to be true.

 If you have been scammed

You can report the firm or scam to us by contacting our on 0800 111 6768 or using our .

If you have already invested in a scam, fraudsters are likely to target you again or sell your details to other criminals.

The follow-up scam may be completely separate or related to the previous fraud, such as an offer to get your money back or to buy back the investment after you pay a fee.

If you have any concerns at all about a potential scam, immediately.

FCA Updates Forex Broker Scam List

4-5 minutes

FCA Updates Forex Broker Scam List

The FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) finally got around to updating its list of unregulated online trading brokers. This list includes both forex and binary options unregulated brokers. Despite the fact, these brokers supposedly offer numerous services they are located in financial havens such as Seychelles, the Marshall Islands or Vanuatu and provide little to no information as to who they really are, and which parent company operates them. So, without further ado let’s introduce these fraudulent companies


Owned by LOK Marketing Ltd, this forex broker is supposedly located in Vanuatu, a tax haven for any illicit business. Apparently, appears to be forging a path for current forex brokers and others that would like to set up shop in the country, whose major exports are frozen fish and distinct floating edifices. However, upon further inspection, the SolidCFD has two other offices registered on their website.

The first is under the name MGNC Marketing Ltd. and it is located in Cyprus. A quick google search tells us all that we need to know. MGNC Marketing LTD (Solid CFD) cold-calls potential investors and offers them unauthorized or prohibited financial services. An additional address is attributed to an area in West London. However, upon further review, there is no real company located there. Unsurprisingly no company is registered in the UK under SolidCFD, LOK marketing or MGNC Marketing, which implies that the broker has no physical presence in the United Kingdom.

Furthermore, there is a whole list of negative reviews pertaining to SolidCFD. This includes clients being unable to withdraw their funds, aggressive salesmen and not being able to log back into an account once a withdrawal request is made.

StratX Markets

Registered in the Marshal Islands, the company supposedly has an office in North London. However, the address that is provided is used by a company that enables other companies to register their business under their address. This obviously implies that StratX has no workers at its given address.

Just by merely glancing at a few of the reviews tells you that StratX Markets is operated by a bunch of con-artists. In fact what is more alarming, a number of former clients are claiming that StratX personnel are operating a fraudulent fund recovery company called Linrow Clarion Solvency that claims they can recover money that was lost to illegitimate brokers like Stratx Markets.

Options Stars Global

Last but not least this “broker” is registered in Samoa, but apparently has some sort of a branch in Cyprus that is regulated by CySEC. That is patently false.

Additionally, although the website has a U.K. phone number none of their of operations occur in the country. Not only Are there plenty of negative reviews about them, there is a dedicated Facebook page against them

Users of the website report an inability to withdraw funds, threatening salesmen, and pushy brokers who tempt traders into depositing more cash into their accounts. The company has done so badly they even have a Facebook page against them.

Take Action

If you were the victim of an online trading scam involving , Stratx Markets or SolidCFD be sure to fill out this form and we will do our utmost to assist you and help you recover your money.

How Forex Brokers Make Money

By Poonkulali Thangavelu
4-5 minutes

In the , traders and speculators buy and sell various currencies based on whether they think the currency will appreciate or lose value. The foreign exchange, or forex market is high risk and sees more than $5 trillion traded daily. Traders have to go through an intermediary such as a forex broker to execute trades. No matter the gains or losses sustained by individual traders, forex brokers make money on commissions and fees, some of them hidden. Understanding how make money can help you in choosing the right broker.

Role of the Foreign Exchange Broker

A foreign-exchange broker takes orders to buy or sell currencies and executes them. Forex brokers typically operate on the , or OTC, market. This is a market that is not subject to the same regulations as other financial exchanges, and the forex broker may not be subject to many of the rules that govern securities transactions. There is also no centralized clearing mechanism in this market, which means you will have to be careful that your does not default. Make sure that you investigate the counterparty and his before you proceed. Be vigilant in choosing a reliable forex broker.

Forex Broker Fees

In return for executing buy or sell orders, the forex broker will charge a commission per trade or a spread. That is how forex brokers make their money. A spread is a difference between the and the ask price for the trade. The bid price is the price you will receive for selling a currency, while the ask price is the price you will have to pay for buying a currency. The difference between the bid and ask price is the broker’s spread. A broker could also charge both a commission and a spread on a trade. Some brokers may claim to offer commission-free trades. These brokers probably make a commission by widening the spread on trades.

The could also be either fixed or variable. In the case of a variable spread, the spread will vary depending on how the market moves. A major market event, such as a change in interest rates, The OP here is a cunt could cause the spread to change. This could either be favorable or unfavorable to you. If the market gets volatile, you could end up paying much more than you expected. Another aspect to note is that a forex broker could have a different spread for buying a currency and for selling the same currency. Thus you have to pay close attention to pricing.

In general, the brokers who are well-capitalized and work with a number of large foreign exchange dealers to get competitive quotes typically offer competitive pricing.

Risks of Foreign Exchange Trading

It is possible to trade on margin by depositing a small amount as a margin requirement. This introduces a lot of risk in the foreign exchange market for both the trader and the broker. For example, in January 2015, the Swiss National Bank stopped supporting the euro peg, causing the to appreciate considerably versus the euro. Traders caught on the wrong side of this trade lost their money and were not able to make good on the margin requirements, resulting in some brokers suffering catastrophic losses and even going into bankruptcy. Inexperienced traders could also get caught up in a , such as the one that was blamed for the 6% dip of the British pound in 2016.

The Bottom Line

Those contemplating trading in the forex market will have to proceed cautiously—many foreign-exchange traders have lost money as a result of fraudulent get-rich schemes that promise great returns in this thinly . The forex market is not one in which prices are transparent, and each broker has his own quoting method. It is up to those who are transacting in this market to investigate their broker pricing to ensure that they are getting a good deal.

How Forex Brokers Make Money

Christopher Lewis
5-6 minutes

When trading Forex, most people don’t think about how brokers make their money. However, this is a fundamental thing to understand before , as you should understand where money flows throughout the system. Nobody cares about your account more than you do, so keep that in mind when figuring out . In this article, I’ll take a look at how Forex brokers , and what their role is in facilitating liquidity.

Understanding how Forex brokers make their money can help you . Most brokers have a handful of charges that they use to profit from their clients. Getting familiar with these options will help you know where your money is going.

The main source of income are broker fees

Some Forex brokers will charge a commission per trade, while others will charge the spread between the bid/ask prices. The main way that Forex brokers make money is by keeping the spread or charging a set fee per round turn. Some brokers even charge both, but that’s becoming less common these days as the commoditization of the business demands lower pricing. Unfortunately, some less than scrupulous Forex brokers have previously mentioned that they have commission free trades, but what they typically do is charge more in the spread to make up the difference.

Sometimes the spread is fixed, sometimes it is variable. In a variable spread liquidity pool, the amount of the spread will depend on how many orders are out there. When there is a major announcement such as the Nonfarm Payroll Numbers coming out of the United States, the spread will typically widen. Because of this, in a volatile market you may end up paying more in spread than you anticipate. This is the major advantage for a fixed spread, because at least you’ll know what you’re going to be charged to facilitate buying and selling.

Alternate sources of income

Some will charge extra for “bells and whistles” when it comes to customer service and education. For example, some will offer , some will offer in-depth , and some will even offer private educational classes and for those who are willing to pay more or have a larger account. That being said, if you understand trading and proper techniques, these things are very rarely needed.

, you are in fact taking out a loan. This can get a bit dicey and complicated, but suffice to say the with large amounts of orders can get paid interest in the true Interbank market, something that you will not be participating in. Despite what people tell you, as a retail trader you get nowhere near the true Interbank market, because orders need to be much larger to function in that arena. Typically the Forex broker will work with the liquidity provider that shops up these orders in smaller chunks, allowing people to trade back and forth. The true Interbank market is made up of the largest banks in the world, who cannot be bothered with a small trade that is worth $500 (for example).

Some myths

Some of the prevailing myths that endure for many years is that brokers are out there “ hunting”, meaning that they are moving the prices on their servers to wipe out a bunch of traders in one shot. This is because the marketplace was previously full of unscrupulous dealers that would do such things. As a general rule, if you stick with a , you won’t run into this issue.

Another myth is that brokers are traders themselves. In all honesty, they very rarely are. They are simply filling orders for traders. In fact, you’d be surprised how little somebody running a Forex desk for a brokerage knows about actual trading. They worry about order flow, system analysis, statistical analysis, and that everybody gets what they asked for in an ordered manner.

It’s also thought that Forex brokers go out of their way to take money from the clients. Nothing could be further from the truth. This is because most client accounts are closer to $1000 in value than they are $10,000. Despite the advertisements that you see of people in the Caribbean on a beach, or perhaps getting off of their private jet, most retail Forex traders do not have that much money in their account. Statistically speaking, most Forex traders will lose a large percentage of their account within 90 days, so the Forex broker doesn’t need to cheat them. This is especially true when a Forex broker is well-capitalized. For example, brokers in the United States need to have a minimum of $20 million in the bank. The purpose of this capital requirement is to absorb losses for traders, and to have the ability to pay when that trader cashes out. This makes the counterparty very low. Unfortunately, there are Forex brokers out there that used to be capitalized with as little as $10000, making them an accident just waiting to happen. Once you understand how Forex brokers make money, you’ll also understand the need for using a , and you’ll be in a stronger position to trade the markets safely and intelligently.

The Truth About How Forex Brokers Make Their Money - My Trading Skills

Phillip Konchar
11-14 minutes

Like it or not, Forex brokers are an integral part of any trader’s life. That’s why it’s important to understand how they operate, how they make their money and how to protect against bad broker practices such as stop-hunting.

In the following lines, we’ll dig deeper into what Forex brokers are, what their main types are and how they make their profit. We’ll also explain whether Forex brokers trade against their traders, and if so, how to identify such a broker.

What are Forex Brokers?

A Forex broker is a company that provides traders with access to the foreign exchange market. In essence, Forex brokers are a middleman between Forex traders and the market. They offer a range of services, , which are used to buy and sell foreign currencies.

Once you send an order through your trading platform, your broker tries to match the order either with its internal pool of traders or forwards it to external liquidity providers to find the best opposite order. Each time you place a sell order, it has to be matched with a corresponding buy order, and vice-versa.

Forex brokers, also known as retail Forex brokers, account for a relatively small amount of the daily Forex market turnover. research, retail Forex makes up around 5% of the total $5 trillion market.

Main Types of Brokers

There are two main types of Forex brokers: dealing desk (DD) brokers and no dealing desk (NDD) brokers. NDD brokers can be further divided into STP, ECN and ECN+STP brokers. All mentioned types of brokers have their own advantages and disadvantages, which are explained below.

  • Dealing Desk

Dealing desk or DD brokers, also called market makers, provide liquidity to their clients and create the market for them. They’re called market makers because they’re the main source of liquidity for their traders. Most of the time, dealing desk brokers take the opposite side of their client’s position. If you’re selling, they’re buying from you, and vice-versa.

Since dealing desk brokers create the market for their clients, they have the full discretion to set both bid and ask prices of a currency pair. Dealing desk brokers don’t have necessarily to provide interbank rates, but the large competition among brokers makes sure that the offered rates don’t differ much from interbank rates. Also, dealing desk brokers often .

  • No Dealing Desk

No dealing desk brokers don’t pass their clients’ orders through a dealing desk.

They simply act as a middleman between their clients and other liquidity provider, either internal or external ones. Once you place a trade with a no dealing desk broker, the broker will first try to match your order with its internal liquidity pool. If there are no matching orders, the broker will forward your order to external liquidity providers, which can include banks, mutual funds, hedge funds, other brokers etc.

Since no dealing desk brokers don’t know at which price your order will be filled, they usually offer variable spreads with a small markup that compensates them for their services.

The following graphic summarises the main difference between DD and NDD brokers pretty well.

139彩彩票登录DD vs ND brokers

Dealing Desk vs. No Dealing Desk

No dealing desk brokers are further divided into STPs, ECNs and a combination of both (ECN+STP.)

    • STP – Straight Through Processing (STP) brokers, as their name suggests, forward your order immediately to external liquidity providers which have access to the interbank market. Once they find the best matching order, they’ll add their spread and fill your order at the external provider’s price + the broker’s spread.
    • ECN – Electronic Communication Network (ECN) brokers are true NDD brokers as they represent the bridge between retail traders and the interbank market. ECN brokers simply provide a sophisticated network that connects various market participants together, such as hedge funds, banks, other brokers and retail traders. All mentioned market participants trade directly with each other, and the ECN broker charges a small commission for its services.
    • ECN+STP – Finally, some brokers offer a combination of STP and ECN services. Those brokers are called ECN+STP brokers.

Here’s a table to make the difference between the main types of brokers crystal clear.

Comparing the Different Types of Brokers

How do Forex Brokers Make Money

Now that you know what Forex brokers are and their main types, let’s take a look at how they make their money. In essence, the major source of a broker’s income is the spread, followed by other sources of revenue such as commissions/fees, trading platforms and additional services.

  • Spread – The spread is the difference between the bid and ask prices of currency pairs. Whenever you go long on a currency pair, you’ll get the ask price. Similarly, if you decide to close your long position or want to go short on a currency pair, you’ll get the bid price. This difference between the bid and ask price is your broker’s profit. While some dealing desk brokers offer fixed spreads, and depend on the current market conditions. If there are important and unexpected news in the market, spreads can widen significantly and increase your trading costs. During normal market conditions, spreads tend to be quite low with most brokers, reaching around 1 pip for most major pairs. For , the New York / London session overlap usually has the lowest spreads during the day.
  • Commissions/Fees – Besides the spread, some brokers may also charge you a fixed commission or fee per trade. This is especially true with ECN brokers. However, commissions and fees tend to be quite low due to the high competition among Forex brokers. For example, a broker may charge you a $1 commission for a pre-specified lot size, such as 1 lot or 10 lots.
  • Trading Platforms – The next major . While many brokers offer free in-house developed and third-party trading platforms, some of them may also charge you for additional features. If you’re a professional trader, you may look at the offer of Forex trading platforms provided by your broker and look for features that could help you in your daily trading. The main point to consider is that the offered feature increases your profitability and efficiency more than the cost of the service. Beginner traders, on the other hand, are likely fine with the range of features offered with free trading platforms.

Do All Brokers Make Money When You Lose?

As we already said earlier, some brokers take the opposite side of your trade as they are creating the market for you. Those brokers are called market makers. However, is it bad or illegal to be a market maker? Many traders have this question, so let’s cover it briefly.

Absolutely not! Market makers provide a service that people need.

There’s nothing wrong with being a market maker and taking the opposite side of a trader’s position. Market makers operate in the following way:


Let’s say you want to buy €1,000 for US dollars. A market maker could provide you an offer to sell you €1,000 for $1,200, which would equal to an exchange rate of EUR/USD 1.20. You buy €1.000 and the market maker sells it to you, profiting either from a small commission or the spread (or both).

The transaction is fully legal. If you don’t agree with the offered exchange rate or transaction costs, you could always look for other brokers as this is a very competitive business. In addition, since most traders lose money while trading, a market maker doesn’t have to cheat you to make an extra profit from you.

Naturally, the problems start if a market maker decides to cheat you, either because of greed or fear. There is a certain conflict of interest involved in a market maker’s transaction, since your profits are the broker’s losses and vice versa.

Fortunately, stop-hunting has become increasingly rare, especially among regulated market makers.

Stop-hunting has been a very popular practice among market makers to make extra profits by artificially moving exchange rates to hit levels where a large number of stop-loss orders are placed. Fortunately, stop-hunting has become increasingly rare, especially among regulated market makers.

Being a market maker is simply a service that traders need and an operational type of Forex brokers – there’s nothing wrong in being an honest market maker per se.

Still, not all brokers make money when you lose. If you don’t like the idea of having a conflict of interest with your broker, you can always look for no-dealing desk brokers (STPs, ECNs or a combination of both.)


What to Look for in a Forex Broker?

When opening a trading account with a Forex broker, there are certain things you need to pay attention to. We recommend you . We’ve also listed the most important below.

  • Regulation – Always open an account . Brokers are regulated and licensed by the country’s regulatory authority where they’re registered. Regulation ensures that the broker adheres to and enforces strong industry standards and that your funds are safe. Regulated brokers are happy to list their license number and regulatory authority on their website.
  • Broker Type – Is the broker a dealing desk broker or a straight through processing / electronic communication network broker? You should know to avoid any surprises down the road.
  • Trading Costs – Trading costs are an important consideration when choosing a Forex broker. Due to the high competition, most brokers offer very tight spreads, especially on major pairs. ? Are there any additional commissions or fees on opening trades? If you’re a day trader or scalper, trading costs can easily eat up a significant portion of your profits.
  • Trading Tools – What ? Besides free trading platforms (such as MetaTrader), most brokers offer free market analysis, market sentiment indicators and webinars nowadays.
  • Customer Service – Last but not least, a broker should , reachable around the clock. If your trading platforms stops working or you are unable to open, manage or close trades, the first step you need to do is to contact your broker’s support.

Understanding your broker is a crucial part of your trading success

As a trader, you’ll be dealing with your Forex broker on a daily basis, paying transaction costs and contacting their customer support from time to time.

There are two types of brokers out there: Dealing desk broker (DD) and no dealing desk broker (NDD). Dealing desk brokers are also known as market makers, as they create the market for their clients and often take the opposite side of the trade. While there is nothing wrong with (regulated) market makers, some of them are notorious for bad broker practices such as stop-hunting.

If you don’t like the idea of being in a conflict of interest with your broker, you can look for no dealing desk broker which forward their clients’ orders to third-party liquidity providers. Whichever broker you choose, make sure to do your analysis and to pick the right broker for your trading needs.

Less than a decade ago in 1999, retail or individual forex trading simply did not exist. Trading the foreign exchange markets was pretty much restricted to big banks, hedge funds, and high net-worth individuals simply because of the capital requirements for trading. The minimum trading size was usually $1,000,000 USD.

However, as information began spreading about the profit potential that forex trading holds, more people wanted in, even if they could not trade on the traditional interbank market because they did not have huge sums of money to work with.

There was a growing need for forex market access for those investors who had around $10,000 to $50,000 to invest or less, and so the retail forex market was born. New forex brokers began (and still are) springing up rapidly to meet this high demand, yet this aspect of forex trading is still highly unregulated.

Many of the forex brokers out there operate under the ‘market maker’ or bucketshop model, and these are the guys who actually have NO interest in seeing you succeed as a trader. Why? do you ask?

Well, it is their job to make forex market access available to smaller investers (hence the term market maker). In order to do that, they need to be able to fill every order that you place on your trading platform, and they do this by taking the opposing position of every trade that you make.

Well, since they will have an opposing position open for every trade that you make, they will actually lose money every time you have a winning trade. Imagine that you bought the EUR/USD pair because you think the Euro is going to appreciate. Well, in order to provide market access to you, the broker will have to take a position where they are selling EUR/USD in order for your trade to go through.

Since they are in a sell position here, it is in their best interest for the Euro to depreciate in value, or to see you lose on the trade. And keep in mind that your forex market maker will never, ever reveal this to you, as they count only a small minority of traders actually fully understanding their business model, and thus the majority of traders will fall victim to it.

The other type of forex broker business model is called an Electronic Communications Network (ECN), and it is more trader-friendly simply because the broker does not have a vested interest in seeing you fail. In order to understand how this type of setup works, remember that the goal of any broker is to provide market access and liquidity.

A forex market maker does this by taking an opposing position to every trade you place, but an ECN broker does this buy routing your trade order through their communications network and matching it with another trade (for example, if you placed a buy order on a certain currency pair, the ECN would match you up with another trader selling that same pair).

ECN brokers are really your best choice, as it is much easier to make money using a broker that offers this type of trading setup. Because they have no vested interest in seeing you lose money and instead only care about providing a network where they can match your orders with other traders, you would never have any problems withdrawing your profits as you might have with a market maker.

Public Theory # 2

Trading forex is great – online access to your account so you can trade anywhere in the world, very high leverage which enables you to make a significant amount of money from a very small account, the trades are commission-free and even the spreads in forex are extremely tight.

Given that you, the forex trader, has a number of advantages, have you ever wondered how your retail forex broker makes money? And why are there so many retail forex brokers out there? After all, forex broker advertisements are everywhere and the competition seems to be very stiff. So how, exactly, does your forex broker make money?

The answer might surprise you. Your forex broker assumes that you will lose money over the long run when you trade. Given that 95% of forex traders lose money, it is a very safe assumption. Every broker has to decide whether a new account will belong to the group (95%) of traders that loses money, or the group (5%) that makes money.

If I gave you a coin and said that it would land on heads 95% of the time, I think you would probably want to keep the coin so that you could use it to win some bets with your friends and 2) always assume the coin would land on heads.

This is precisely what your forex broker does. Every new account is assumed to belong to “group B” – those traders that will lose money. Since 95% of the traders belong in this group, your broker is only too happy to assume that you belong in this group.

After some time, if you have consistently made profits, your broker will re-assign you to “group A” – these are the lucky 5% of traders who consistently make money. After you have joined this group your broker will lump your trades with all of the rest of group A and hedge against your trades. So, for example, if all traders in group A have bought the EUR/USD your broker will place a trade in the interbank forex market to offset any profits group A make on this trade.

Basically, your broker puts up with group A traders but is really interested in gaining group B accounts. This is because if a trader in group B loses $7,000 – that is, he completely blows up his $7,000 account, then the broker gets all of that money. The broker does not make money on the spread; the broker makes money on the losing accounts.

This is also why brokers are constantly advertising for new customers. The brokers need “fresh blood” to keep making money, many of the traders in group B will give up on trading or move to another broker.

Public Theory # 3

Like any other business in the history of business, your broker’s raison d’etre, is to make as big a profit as possible. There are about as many ways to go about this as there are brokers. For those who are in it for the long haul, however, it is generally best to adopt a set of practices which are deemed fair by their clients: certain boundaries are set, and operating beyond them can cost a brokerage its reputation, and along with it its clients.

Straying outside these boundaries, therefore, is not considered as being in line with the long term goals of the business. How strictly these boundaries are enforced, especially when there is little chance of clients ever even becoming aware of any transgression, again varies from business to business. For the sake of simplicity, in this article we assume that everyone in the business is squeaky clean, as if every client could peek into the broker’s back office at any time and dissect every trade. This is obviously not the case, and many brokers do take advantage of this opaqueness, but the details of that are best left for another discussion.

So without further ado, let’s get into the details of how forex brokers function. Somewhat removed from the top-tier interbank market, retail forex brokers are there to provide a service that would otherwise not be available, that is, giving an investor with a $10,000 bankroll the chance to speculate in the up-until-recently very exclusive forex market. There are generally considered to be 2 types of brokers providing access at the retail level: Electronic Communications Networks (ECNs) and Market Makers. ECNs are generally somewhat more exclusive, requiring larger deposits to get started, but are seen as providing more direct access to the interbank market. As we will see, there are certainly advantages to this, but some disadvantages as well. Market makers, on the other hand are more often than not, the counter party to their clients’ trades, creating somewhat of a conflict of interest, whereas ECNs profit from commission fees charged directly to the clients, regardless of the result of any trade, they are seen as being completely impartial – an ECN has no incentive for a client to lose money.

In fact, one could argue that an ECN stands to profit more if a client is successful, meaning that s/he will stay around longer and they will be able to collect more commission fees from them. A market maker, on the other hand, being the counterparty to a client’s trade, makes money if the client loses money, providing an incentive for some shady practices, particularly in an unregulated market. The extent to which this happens varies among individual brokers. There are also some benefits to trading with a market maker (see our ECNs vs. Market Makers article) Some brokers also provide a service that doesn’t quite fit into either category – they route different orders differently, depending on complex algorithms, or on a dealing desk, that analyze each order and attempt to fill it in the way that will be most beneficial to the broker’s bottom line. They can offset some client orders against one another, effectively creating an in-house market, they can choose to be the counterparty to a client’s trade (trade “against” the client), or they can offset their position with a hedge through a higher-tier counterparty. Note that the market maker is mainly concerned with managing its net exposure, and NOT with any single individual’s trades. They are NOT gunning foryour stop losses specifically, but may be gunning for clusters of stops.

If you have already read the first article in the series, Structure of the Forex Market, you will recall that market mechanics are responsible for the variation in bid/ask spreads, and also for slippage. So it seems the two biggest novice traders’ pet peeves are not so much a function of who their broker is, but rather their lack of understanding of the way the forex market operates. A broker that offers a fixed spread tends not to fill orders during periods of low liquidity because this would expose them to undue risk, and as much as their job is to cater to their clients, remember they are in business primarily to make money for themselves. Some brokers also offer guaranteed order fills, such as “guaranteed stop losses”.

Again, if there is no counter party to take the trade, they have to expose themselves to risk in order to fulfill this guarantee, so don’t be surprised if you see such a broker quoting different/delayed prices around important trend lines or support/resistance levels. Be especially aware of brokers who offer both guaranteed fills AND fixed spreads. When a broker offers something that seems too good to be true, you would be wise to question how exactly their business model is able to support such a risky practice. As a general rule, a broker will help you only when your interests are aligned with theirs. On the other hand, brokers provide a very valuable service, without which you wouldn’t have the opportunity to profit from the forex market, so please think about how it all comes together before blaming your broker for everything

 Now a Better Theory & Option (my Choice and Preference)

ever heard of a 3rd type of Broker….. an STP Broker?

Many traders do not feel comfortable trading with “market makers”, as brokers that are market markers have the option of holding on to the other side of their client’s trades which, if they actually choose to do this, would mean that they would profit from their client’s losses and lose money when their clients won. Of course most market makers do not actually do this; market makers usually only seek to match their client’s trades with the trades of other clients in order to profit from the spread and then hedge whatever they cannot match in the market. But nevertheless, many traders are not comfortable with market makers as a Forex Broker actively betting against their clients would be a huge conflict of interest were it to happen.

One solution for those not comfortable with trading with market makers would be to trade with a true STP broker instead. An STP (Straight Through Processing) broker is a broker that is not a market maker, STP brokers are not liquidity providers and therefore all trades placed with an STP broker are immediately passed directly to their liquidity provider(s). As a middleman, an STP broker will profit from the difference between the spread that they charge their clients and the spread that they are able to get from their liquidity provider(s). STP brokers are called Straight Through Processing Brokers because all the trades placed with them effectively pass straight through them and into the hands of someone else.

Trading with a true STP broker is usually a good idea for novice and intermediate traders. The spreads that STP brokers charge are usually very competitive and not normally any higher than those that market makers charge their retail clients, as STP brokers can route their orders to the liquidity provider with the cheapest spread/best price at any given time. And it is in an STP broker’s interests that their clients succeed and make money so that they keep on trading, for novices traders, having a broker that they can be sure is 100% ‘on their side’ is a huge plus.

STP brokers should not be confused with ECN brokers. In order to be a true ECN broker, a broker must provide real time Depth of Market (DOM) information in a window on their trading platform showing every single order to allow traders to see exactly where the liquidity lies. ECN brokers do not simply pass orders straight to a liquidity provider like STPs do, ECN brokers charge a commission for providing a market place where traders can trade against each other on an equal basis, and they don’t actually care about which of their traders wins and which of their traders lose as it doesn’t affect them. An STP broker on the other hand actually wants all it’s traders to do well as that is what is in an STP broker’s best interest.

For those novice and intermediate traders looking for an STP broker I recommend eToro. As eToro is a true STP broker. eToro provides traders with an unlimited practice/demo account and guaranteed stop losses on their live accounts so that there is no risk of DEBT. Making them an ideal broker for novices and intermediate traders to develop their trading skills.


STP brokers like ‘eToro’ does not have any interest in your loss (which most people doubted so far). Rather they want you to do good for their own benefit… and in this process, they want you to open and close (settle) most positions you can, generating them more positions to pass (LOTs), in turn giving them their own better SPREAD MARGIN

and to get the most out of this, eToro came up with COPY feature and promote the best trader so hard, that most noob copy them and the whole amount generate most total LOTs traded for them, rewarding them with maximum Spread Benefits… as when a GURU holds a position it’s not a Single Lot for them, its multiple lots combined together as a result of 1000’s of traders’ copied equity in the same position through a Single Rate (easy for them to achieve better spreads from their liquidity providers)

and this is the reason they have a Fixed PIP Spread on all pairs… so when they have a bigger combined position, they get most lucrative liquidity Spread, and they make the most out of it… at the same time when they don’t get a better spread from their liquidity provider, they still can generate some margin for themselves as the Final Spread they sell to individual trader is Fixed….

So basically their interest in you is to settle the positions, as many as you can, in profit…. Period

And when they say they have TECH problems when the server throws you out, rates get frozen, etc… is the FACT mostly beyond their own controls at times…. as they only rely on Liquidity Providers (multiple of them, synced together with their system) and a Failure of one to accept/provide will result in these occasional Blockages… they just pass you on… they don’t deal with you…

so i can say it aloud that they are NOT CHEATING anyone…

I hope this will HELP you all Understand the Standards of eToro better and how they make profits in reality….

The foreign exchange market is the world’s most liquid market, with more than 5-trillion a day exchanging hands. The market is liquid 24-hours a day, 5-days a week, opening in the evening on Sunday during North American trading hours and closing at 5-pm on Friday evening during the same time zone. If you are a beginner and just dipping your toe into trading the forex markets, you should consider following the market and increasing your understanding of why exchange rates move before risking your hard-earned capital.

Learn About the Financial Markets

The financial markets allow investors, businesses, governments and central banks a place to transact in an open market, exchanging their risks to meet their financial needs. A corporate treasurer might need to exchange profits in Euros into dollars, just as a speculator believes that the EUR/USD will rise. There are thousands of reasons why exchange rates and prices moved over a short-period of time, generating noise as participants look for an optimal price to enter or exit a position.

Before you start trading, you should learn about the different types of markets available to trade, and which one you are most interested in following. In addition to trading forex, you can also consider trading commodities, indices, and shares. The best way to learn about a market is to read about why others believe it’s moving and the different catalysts that might drive the price or exchange rate in a specific direction. For example, you might start with looking for a style of analysis that is generally provided by reputable brokers such as . Your goal is to see what type of analysis they offer and what type of actionable ideas come from the analysis they provide. You can also look through a broker’s education section and see if they provide information about why the markets move. In addition to looking at a broker’s education section, you can scan the markets for websites that focus on financial markets education.


Learn to Do Your Own Analysis

There are two main types of analysis that forex traders generally focus on, which include fundamental and technical analysis. Fundamental analysis is the study of macro events that will alter the course of a currency pair. Technical analysis is the study of price action, including looking at momentum, trends and reversal patterns.

Fundamental Analysis

The fundamentals surrounding the forex markets is based on the interest rates markets of each of the currencies that make up an exchange rate. For example, if you plan on trading the EUR/USD you want to have a gauge of where interest rates are likely going in the Eurozone as well as the United States. In general, the stronger an economy, the more likely the central bank is to raise interest rates, which help drive up market interest rates. The reverse is also the case for a weaker economy where the central bank and market forces will likely drive interest rates lower.

The best way to determine if an economy is strong is to be able to evaluate countries financial information. This could include their employment information, their GDP, as well as inflation information such as the consumer price index. Most reputable brokers will provide you with a where you can see what economists expect relative to history as well as the actual release. What is important about fundamentals is that each new piece of information can alter the direction of an exchange rate. If the economic data is greater than or worse than expected, an exchange rate will move to reflect the new information.

Technical Analysis

Technical analysis is the study of historical prices. Although the past is not always a predictor of the future, different changes following specific studies can give you a gauge of where prices might move in the futures. Some of the more popular technical analysis studies include evaluating momentum. Momentum is the acceleration or deceleration of price changes. If you are interested in learning about technical analysis, you can look at your broker’s education section, or follow their technical analysis forecasts. There are also several websites that will provide you with education on different types of technical analysis tools. Some of the more popular include the MACD, the RSI, and Stochastics.

Find good Broker

Your forex broker facilitates the execution of transactions. While this is their most important function, there are many features a broker like Alpari brings to the table which you should be aware of prior to depositing funds at that broker. First, do some due diligence. Look up reviews by your prospective broker and make sure there are no red flags. Fraud alerts or issues with withdrawing funds are the most important. You also want to make sure there is efficient customer service. You do not want to frustrate yourself by finding a broker who will not answer questions.

The next step is to evaluate the platform. Does the broker have an education section or generate technical analysis forecasts? Additionally, you want to make sure that your broker offers clients a financial calendar. Additionally, you want to find out about the leverage they provide to clients. Higher levels of margin will provide you the option to generate more revenue.

Start with a Demo Account

Most reputable brokers will offer you real-money accounts as well as demonstration accounts. A demo account is one where you are trading paper money, not real capital. Most good demonstration accounts offer nearly all the products that are available to trade will a real-money account. The prices will likely be in real-time or close to real-time. In addition, you will have access to most of the education and forecasting information your broker provides to real-money clients. Once you feel like you’re ready for a real-money account you can make the switch from a demo account to real funds.


There are several steps you should take before you start transacting in the forex market. You need to first learn about the financial markets and the type of information you can learn about prior to trading. Try to learn about both fundamental and technical analysis. that you believe is trustworthy and provides a plethora of information. Lastly, use a demo account before you begin to risk real money.

How Forex Brokers Make Money



Forex trading is immensely popular with online access enabling people to trade from anywhere in the world and make a substantial amount of money from a very small account. The foreign exchange market works whereby traders buy and sell different currencies based on whether they think the currency will increase or decrease in value. It is a high-risk business and sees over $5 trillion dollars traded each day.

In order to execute a transaction, traders have to go through an intermediary known as a broker. Irrespective of the profits or losses experienced by individual traders, brokers have to make money and they do this by charging commissions and fees, some of which are hidden. It is very important to understand how brokers are compensated as it can help a trader choose the best broker for their needs. In this article, we look at how Forex brokers, including ECN brokers and binary options brokers operate and the differences in the ways in which they make money.

Forex Brokers

Forex brokers work by taking orders to buy or sell currencies and executing them. In return for executing these buy or sell orders, a forex broker charges a commission per trade or a spread, and is the way in which they make their money. A spread is the difference between the bid price and the ask price for the trade. The bid price is the price a trader receives for selling a currency, while the ask price is the price they have to pay for buying a currency. The difference between them is the broker’s spread.

Brokers can also charge both a commission and a spread on a trade while some even claim to offer commission-free trades. In reality, these brokers usually make a commission by widening the spread on trades. Spreads can either be fixed or variable. With variable spreads, the spread will vary depending on how the market moves. A major market-moving event, such as an increase in interest rates could cause the spread to change. This may be either favorable or unfavorable to a trader. If the market gets volatile, a trader could end up paying much more than expected.
Another aspect to note is that a forex broker could have a different spread for buying a currency and for selling the same currency. Hence, a trader needs to pay close attention to pricing and be aware that there are several different kinds of brokers including market makers, STP and ECN brokers who all have their own commission or fee structures. Brokers who are well capitalized and work with a number of large foreign exchange dealers to get competitive quotes typically offer competitive pricing.

ECN Brokers

ECN brokers use an electronic communications network to put their clients directly in touch with other currency traders. They do this by linking the buyers and sellers to an automatic program which matches markets orders and then executes them.
As ECN spreads are much narrower than those used by everyday brokers, ECN brokers are compensated by charging their clients a commission per transaction on behalf of the traders.
When a trader has chosen his currency pair, an ECN broker provides them with an order book comprising ‘bid prices’ of buy orders, the total volume of the bid price, the ‘ask price’ of sell orders and the total volume of the ask price. All quotes come from the market participants and the ECN matches the best ones to each other and then displays them directly to the client.
As the service provided to clients by an ECN broker is simply to match trades between market participants, it cannot trade against the client and is thus compensated by imposing commission fees for each client’s transactions. The higher trading volume the broker’s clients generate, the higher the broker’s profitability. ECN brokers typically offer their clients competitive spreads as they are able to engage in sharing information with other brokers to establish the right price.
Binary Options Brokers
Binary options trading is another increasingly popular form of investment in the financial markets. Unlike the forex market where the brokers charge spreads or commissions, binary options brokers operate in a different way and actually make money through a variety of methods. One way is through the pricing of the binary options while the other is through the trading activities of their clients.

Binary options brokers usually obtain their pricing structures from their liquidity providers, however, some traders may not be aware that the pricing of the binary options that they are trading is actually marked up slightly from those in the market. Binary options traders tend to check out the prices of the asset displayed on the broker’s trading platform together with the expected payout, but those who scrutinise this more carefully will find that the expected payout is not calculated based on a true percentage payout. A certain percentage of the payout is actually retained by the broker and this constitutes the commission that the binary options broker is earning.

Another way in which binary options brokers make money is through the trading activities of their clients and cashing in on the money placed on losing trades. If a trader places a bid and predicts it correctly, they will receive their money back plus an extra 80% (not 100%).
On the other hand, if a trader places a bid and predicts it wrongly, they lose all their money invested in that trade. All this money goes to the broker, although in some cases, brokers will give the trader a small percentage back. Hence, brokers are compensated by pocketing the difference between the percentage that losers will lose and the percentage that winners will make.


As we have seen, brokers tend to charge on a commission or fee basis, but binary options brokers operate a different business model. It is, therefore, a good idea for traders looking to to find out how their broker of choice makes money since their charges will inevitably affect their bottom line.
It is not only advisable to check a broker’s payment structure, but also their terms and conditions before proceeding in order to steer clear from those offering fraudulent get-rich quick schemes promising great returns. Each broker has its own quoting method and it is ultimately up to those who are undertaking transactions in the forex market to ensure that they are getting the best deal available.

Let’s face it. It will be more profitable to run a Forex broker than trading in the market. Why? The return on investment can be comparably higher than the profits made from trading. In our previous post we have introduced the two main business models of brokers; Straight Through Processing and Market Making. Now, we will use those business models in order to provide you with a clearer idea of the profits brokers make.
First and quickly, we will touch on how Market Maker brokers profit from offering their services. Well, this is simple they profit when clients lose money and lose when clients profit. Overall, due to the law of averages, human emotion, a high percentage of inexperienced traders and other factors the overall majority of traders lose money. So, provided a Market Maker has a good pool of clients they will always profit from the losses of clients, and those losses will typically always exceed any profits other clients make. This is a very simple concept to understand but what is not so simple are the ways an STP broker makes money as it is often not so clear and requires some explaining. For that reason we have addressed six ways an STP brokers can profit, as follows.

Spread mark-up

Let’s assume that we have a pure STP broker that covers all its clients’ orders directly with LPs (Liquidity Providers). In this case the profit for the broker comes from the mark up that they have added on to the “raw” spreads they receive from their LPs. To understand this better let’s use an example. If a broker offers a spread of 0.8 pips on EURUSD then they must have a deal with their liquidity provider for a lower spread for example of say 0.2 pips. In this example if a trader open and closes 1 lot of EURUSD then irrespective of any profit or loss they make the broker will make a fixed 0.6 pips profit. If the pip value of 1 lot EURUSD is $10 then the broker will profit $6 ($10 pip value * 0.6 pips). You should also be aware that brokers often pay some commissions on volume but for this example we will keep it simple.
Is that the only way STP Forex brokers make money from clients’ trades? No, it’s not so let’s dig deeper a bit more to see how the brokers can produce more profits for themselves.

Swap fees

In our previous example we mentioned spreads on the EURUSD. But what will happen if your position remains open during the night. Your account will probably get charged with a swap fee or you could receive a swap fee back depending if the direction of your trade is in your favour. If you look a bit closer and look at the swap fees you will notice that there is a spread between the swap fee paid and the swap fee charged depending if your position is long or short. In some cases brokers charge swaps in both directions, which doesn’t reflect true market conditions. If you question your broker they are likely to tell you that they pass on the swap rates they receive from their LPs, which may or may not be true.

Transaction fees

Another thing to notice is that in order to trade with a broker you obviously need to deposit to and withdraw from your trading account. Some brokers might cover the transaction fees but some others will not. If you have used a lot of Forex brokers then it highly likely you came across a deposit or withdrawal fee one day and you were wondering why the hell you received less money than you sent. If you contact your broker it is likely they will tell you that the amount was charged from an intermediary bank (when you have used a bank transfer) or the PSP (Payment Service Provider). Some brokers cover these costs, while others pass them on, sometimes for a profit. Also, it common for brokers to establish special agreements with their Banks and their PSPs so they can receive a small percentage back from the transaction cost, which you could call a rebate. A profit on every single transaction going through a typical sized broker can add up to quite a tidy revenue stream.

Proprietary trading

Another way for STP brokers to profit is to trade for themselves, which for a Forex broker is often referred to as “Proprietary trading”. In the event that you are a very successful trader and you are working with a true STP broker then they can simply follow your trading strategy and trade a higher volume with their LP. If for example you trade 1 lot, which profited $100 the broker can easily place 3 lots for the same position and make you $100 as well as $200 for themselves. Similarly, STP brokers can trade by doing the opposite of unsuccessful traders and also reap profits.

Profit sharing liquidity deals

It is clear to most traders that a broker using the Market Maker model profits directly when clients lose but it is also possible for STP brokers to have secured a profit sharing agreement with a LP, which is a market maker. So, ultimately depending on the liquidity deals in place it is possible for an STP broker to still profit, indirectly, when their clients lose money.

Infrastructure Licensing and White Label Agreements

Another point worth mentioning is that many Forex brokers have developed their own internal IT systems such as a CRM (customer relationship management system), back office, payment processing, reporting or any other systems that are required to better facilitate the operation of a brokerage. Therefore, brokers often license these parts of these systems out to third parties under licensing deals, allowing new brokers to enter the market without huge upfront development costs, under a recurring license fee. Some brokers even have their own trading platforms or resell the platforms of third parties under white label deals.

To sum up, Forex brokers have many revenue streams even if they are using a pure STP broker model. Got any comments please let us know we would love to answer your questions.

    • Date : 9th June 139彩彩票app下载.FX Update – June 9 – Sterling rally stalls.GBPUSD, H1The Pound has taken a turn lower, racking up a 0.5% loss to the Dollar and about a 1% decline versus the Yen, while also softening a little against the Euro. The backdrop of sliding stock markets in Europe has weighed on the Pound, which has established a pandemic-era proclivity to underperform its main currency peers during risk-off periods. Attention also remains on the UK-EU trade negotiation front. The decision by EU fisheries ministers not to change course on their position — to maintain the “status quo”, as the EU’s chief negotiator Barnier put it, has “skewed things late in the process,” according to a Downing Street source cited by the Guardian. London is frustrated by Barnier’s inability, thus far, to convince various member states to look for a compromise. The UK is insisting that it will be an independent coastal state, and that there needs to be a new relationship with the EU with regard to fishing, pointing to Norway as a working example. The EU, on the other hand, wants to emulate the common fisheries policy (CFP), under which fishing quotas are agreed at an annual negotiation. This is a major issue for the UK which ran large in the pro-Brexit campaign. The UK government, for instance, points out that the scheme has led to France having 84% of the cod quota in the English Channel. The EU is now expecting the talks to drag on until October, regardless of whether the UK asks for an extension of its post-Brexit transitory access to the single market (which it has to decide on by July 1st). Unless there is a breakthrough in trade negotiations, the pound’s upside potential is likely to remain limited.Technically, the daily chart remains in bid mode, having closed above the 200-day moving average (1.2676) yesterday (June 😎 for the first time since March 11 and completed 8 consecutive days of gains. H4 has moved to test the 20-period moving average on the close of the last candle, whilst the H1 time frame triggered lower on the break of the 20-hour moving average at 1.2700 and moved below yesterday’s low at 1.2627 to test 1.2616.Always trade with strict risk management.

    • Markets just sayin’ in the stock mkt right now down IS still down, but up is not up... up is sideways at best ... a little up is actually down...   unless! we could get to DJIA 46000 in the next few days... then up from there would be up again.  Stranger things have happened.  Stranger things will happen.  zombie ain’t natural is it?  These just sayin' posts should be buried under 200 other posts...  I'm just sayin'     Social just sayin’ Conspiracy (theory) should not be this much fun... seriously http://www.brighteon.com/bd2d10b6-cc41-4b7f-988a-2252a91a517e http://www.brighteon.com/073a0d8a-b113-4601-9085-f4aa21b24202 some think black privilege demeans blacks ... crowds them into the "useful idiots" train http://www.naturalnews.com/139彩彩票app下载-06-07-black-privilege-reigns-supreme-in-the-usa.html
    • ‘Economy’ just sayin’ The employment ‘numbers’ just indicate that many of the businesses than were not ‘authorized’  to reopen and resume work did reopen -  ‘illegally’  , against official’s orders, in the face of lockdown policies.  Note in states that are still in ‘lockdown’, the employment numbers are not quite as ‘great’ .  Regardless, these numbers do not mean the economy is out of the woods.  The same fragilities and frailties that were developed before the ‘crisis’ are now elevated, not reduced.  Someone said “We should worry about turning into Japan, not Zimbabwe.”  Hellow - Japan IS Zimbabwe... plodding instead of jerking.  “That which has failed is unsustainable, no matter how many trillions the Federal Reserve tosses against the tides of history. The current travesty of a mockery of a sham system will fragment no matter how desperate the looters, parasites and predators are to maintain their swag.” C H Smith   “Merkel's coalition overcame ideological differences and passed a €130BN stimulus for the foundering German economy”. Shows you have to run it hard even in a race to the bottom... http://www.aier.org/article/japans-three-decades-of-depressive-stimulus-schemes/ ... A “regime of irredeemable currency is inherently dishonest.” http://news.goldseek.com/GoldSeek/1589993951.php     Social ( cops murders protests etc...) just sayin’ and questioning the fucking narratives !!!! Why demonstrate at all?  Everyone is in agreement!  NO ONE wants police murdering people - black or white.  You’d never hear MSM paint it like this but even the “extreme white supremacists” who are quite sure their lives matter too don’t want police murdering people... cause they know if they act out their white neck intolerant criminal asses are even more likely than an intolerant black criminal to be ‘murdered’ by the police .  Personally, while I sympathize,  I would buy into the BLM concept much more if there were any indications on the concrete plantation that black babies' lives actually mattered to all those protesters... just sayin' http://www.peakprosperity.com/ideas-for-righteous-revolution/ And while we’re at it, just a week ago small business owners protesting the lockdown were spit on as engaging the most dangerous activity possible... now the same officials who prohibited those protests are marching arm in arm with the murder protesters... their double standards are much better than most double standards... I'll give them that. ...and btw, all that protesting and rioting and looting will not save one single life...    But for all the crime victims and families who will be harmed, it would be interesting to see a city sample dissolving the police force and instituting a 'new public safety' agency - where, of course, only dyed in the wool social justice warriors would be ever hired as 'cops' ,,, smells like china where a cop has to have a shining record with the ccp to be hired into that completely just and un-corrupted police force...   anyways    ...a welfare state ultimately reverts to a slavery state.  ... is that what ‘we’ really want as we continue to protest for more welfare state???  Just sayin’ http://www.rutherford.org/publications_resources/john_whiteheads_commentary/this_is_not_a_revolution._its_a_blueprint_for_locking_down_the_nation
    • Date : 08th June 139彩彩票app下载. Events to Look Out for This Week.The focus will remain on the monetary and fiscal stimulus measures, as FED rate decision and meeting will be the highlight of the week, even though no major changes are expected, as negative rates are off the table for now. Chinese trade figures, the US and Chinese inflation, and GDP out of UK and Europe are over the course of next week’s agenda. Monday – 08 June 139彩彩票app下载 Industrial Production (EUR, GMT 08:00) – German Industrial Production is expected to decline further at 15.5% in April compared to the -9.2% decline seen in March. Tuesday – 09 June 139彩彩票app下载   Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 09:00) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. Q1’s GDP is expected to confirm a contraction to -3.8% q/q and -3.2% y/y. Wednesday – 10 June 139彩彩票app下载   Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – Chinese inflation is expected to grow in May at 3.7% y/y, despite the -0.5% drop in the monthly basis. Consumer Price Index (USD, 12:30) – The US May headline CPI is seen to drop with a flat core price rate, following respective April readings of -0.8% and -0.4%. The headline will be restrained by an estimated -2.2% May drop for CPI gasoline prices. As-expected May figures would result in a headline y/y increase of 0.3%, steady from 0.3% in April. Core prices should set a 1.3% y/y rise, a down-tick from 1.4% y/y last month. Interest Rate Decision and Press Conference (USD, GMT 18:00-18:30) – In the last FOMC minutes of April 28-29 policy meeting, the committee made it clear that they are not considering implementing negative policy rates anytime soon. The minutes reiterated that while the current stance was seen as “appropriate,” the Committee could “clarify” its forward guidance (which it didn’t really give because of the unprecedented uncertainties). A “date-based” approach could also be considered that would specify a time period for current policy accommodation. As Chair Powell has indicated, the Fed is fighting to make sure that lasting damage isn’t done to the economy, so that liquidity problems don’t turn into solvency problems. Thursday – 11 June 139彩彩票app下载   Producer Price Index (USD, GMT 12:30) – The PPI, the headline inflation figures will be depressed by oil prices, while the core figures face divergent pressures that have thus far been downward on net, via diminished demand, though with risk of price boosts from supply disruptions for some components. The Fed will have plenty of elbow room for an easy money policy over the coming quarters. Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US initial jobless claims fell -249k to 1,877k in the week ended May 30 after declining -320k to 2,126k (was 2,123k) in the prior week. This is the 9th straight week of declines. Friday – 12 June 139彩彩票app下载   EcoFin Meeting (EUR, Full Post) – European Finance Ministers are to convene on a variety of topics. Michigan Sentiment (USD, GMT 15:00) – US consumer sentiment slipped to 72.3 in the final May print from the University of Michigan Survey, weaker than expected and down from 73.7 in the preliminary May report. However, it’s still a little better than the 8-year low of 71.8 from April. June’s preliminary release is expected to show an increase to 75.0. Always trade with strict risk management.
