8 Major Currencies

While most traders and investors have heard of "diversification" and are trying to practice it, that's not what they're actually doing! In this session, we look at the merits of diversification and the proper way to implement it.
How Forex Works
With most trading instruments, you are usually buying or selling one security at a time. With Forex, you are actually trading two at a time! In this lesson we look at the mechanics behind spot Forex trading and also explain the various trading sessions that take place around the clock.
With so many currencies to trade, it's critical to identify strong ones to buy, and weak ones to sell! Doing so may increase your probability of a successful trade and increase your account balance! In this session, we will also discuss how to identify trading opportunities based on a currency's relative strength to others.
The Power of Leverage
The Forex markets offer some of the highest leverage in the trading world. To the trained professional, leverage can be a powerful ally but to the untrained novice, it can be an account killer. In this session we look at the power of leverage and its potential to increase the size of your portfolio.
Supply & Demand
The most fundamental driver of the price of anything is Supply & Demand. In this session, we look at how differently the novice trader and the professional interpret price charts. If you understand the charts you will better understand the actions of buyers and sellers in the marketplace and be able to spot where the institutional money is trading in the market.
