THE notion that foreign-exchange (forex) trading requires a large capital and involves plenty of risks is a misconception. While it is true a budding trader without full understanding of the complexities of forex trading may need a huge fund to jump-start their venture, that is not the case for people who know what they are doing and have the know-how in managing their risk safely.

JustForex, a foreign-exchange broker providing services in 197 countries for many years, said forex trading does not require intensive trading on the open market to learn the intricacies of the trade. What is important is a comprehensive training and mentoring, which could be done using available tools online, they said.

JustForex said there are online tutorials, as well as workshops, seminars and training programs designed by experts to teach aspiring traders, experienced traders and novice traders procedures on the right path to success.







It added the rise in Internet use has also opened more doors for forex trading; anybody with access to the Net can become a currency trader.

The company suggested, however, to always monitor forex news to better understand forex signals from the market. Traders must keep the habit of keeping watch on emerging market trends as it would eventually give them the absorb market technical analysis by experts, which could eventually give them the ability to develop their unique forex trading strategy.

The growing forex online trading segment is also pushing the growth in space as Filipinos with idle cash are investing in forex to earn extra money. These part-time traders do so without quitting their current work and spend all the time on trading as they gain confidence and the skill set to conduct comprehensive technical analysis on forex price movement.

The brokerage firm is offering several tips to start part-time trading on currencies.

JustForex said a startup trader must identify the hours they want to spend in currency trading. It is crucial to set a stable schedule when one wants to concentrate fully on trading activity. Even if one is doing it on a part-time basis, one must still focus well on it, at least while one is  trading.

One of the most critical aspects of trading in foreign exchange is choosing the right currency pair. Currency traders generate profit speculating on a currency price movement, so it is essential to choose the highly volatile currency pairs, at one’s scheduled trading activity time.

This means a Manila resident who decides to be a part-time forex trader between 7 and 10 p.m. after regular office hours is strongly advised to concentrate on EUR/USD and GBP/USD because information and news reports about the euro and pound sterling are released around this time.

Expert forex brokers always tell aspiring traders to get the most of their trading activity and operate with your funds efficiently to achieve optimal results. It is still important to pay attention to trading forums, financial news, fundamental analysis, as well as technical assessments by specialists.

Doing so will give one sufficient knowledge to identify emerging trends in the market. Train on a practice account first to get the hang of trading, JustForex advises. For one, practicing on a JustForex demo account is possible.

Analyze the results and keep learning. Do not get frustrated by unsuccessful deals in the initial trading activity, but learn from one’s trade and analyze.

iRaiser, Europe’s leading fundraising software company for charities and non-profits, has expanded to the UK.

iRaiser’s white label solution is fully customisable and includes online donation, peer-to-peer, event fundraising, crowdfunding, advocacy, marketing automation and CRM. It uses a number of algorithms developed by four PhD experts to improve the conversion rate and average donations made.

The company, which works with 450 organisations including WWF, the Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, the Louvre and Unicef, has already partnered with the UK’s The Salvation Army and Shelter. It supports both organisations in developing and delivering engagement campaigns for its fundraising initiatives.










Working with The Salvation Army, iRaiser has increased online donations by 20% for its Christmas fundraising campaign and has also supported Shelter in a variety of fundraising campaigns.

iRaiser does not take a percentage of donations or anything from Gift Aid. This, together with how iRaiser automates a substantial portion of an organisations fundraising activity, enables more resources to be dedicate to front line charitable initiatives.

Antoine Martel, CEO of iRaiser Group, said: “Expanding to the UK is a very important step in iRaiser’s journey. Although the UK is the most charitable country in Europe in terms of funds raised, there are not many one-stop solutions for fundraising organisations. Those that are available tend to take a percentage on donations.”

Alex Wood, head of individual giving at The Salvation Army, said: “The Salvation Army started working with iRaiser just as we launched our big Christmas fundraising campaign. By the end of the campaign our online donation income had increased by 20% year on year.

“Amongst other factors, we believe the rise in online donations was thanks to the improved layout of the donation form. We designed this form in collaboration with iRaiser, using the wealth of knowledge they have amassed through extensive testing of online donation forms.

“It is also thanks to the mobile friendly form. The experience of using the online donation form on a mobile is vastly superior to our previous donation platform and our online income has increased as a result. With more and more people using mobiles to complete online transactions, it’s vital that we offer a donation experience which matches people’s expectations of giving online, and iRaiser’s solution helps us to achieve that.”

iRaiser charges a fixed fee per month instead of a percentage which means that a charity is not penalised for the success of its campaigns. Other solutions take, on average a 10% fee from donations.

iRaiser’s solution also incorporates payments systems which cover 12 languages (including Mandarin, Cantonese and Japanese) and 50 currencies, enabling organisations to launch global campaigns. It was founded in France in 2012 and has offices in the Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, France, Belgium and the UK.

Support and resistance explained
One of the most foundational aspects of technical analysis is support and resistance levels. These levels are key as they offer traders obvious places to limit and define their risk. There also represent places that price should not go if a trader has correctly analyzed their trade.

Take your trading to the next level

These places are defined by support and resistance levels. Once a trader has decided which currency pair is suitable for trading the next decision is where and how to make your entry. This article will consider three key areas of Support and Resistance that traders use as part of their technical analysis in order to make that decision.

Horizontal Support and Resistance

Arguably the most widely followed aspect of technical analysis is horizontal support and resistance levels. Horizontal support and resistance levels are key market levels where price has shown reaction in the past.

As price moves towards those levels, at which price has reacted previously, they become significant as points in the market dividing buyers and sellers. Think of these levels as 'zones' rather than 'lines'. You might find it helpful to think of these zones like a fat man's stomach.

You can push in quite a bit into a fat man's stomach before you reach the point you can't push anymore. In a similar way horizontal support and resistance levels provide a general zone or area where price will react.

Some traders go wrong when they consider these levels as only being in play at a specific level. They are not to be viewed as exact levels. Sometimes price will appear to stop short 10 pips before the level. Other times price will overshot the level by 20 pips before finally respecting it.

They are not strict levels, but rather key zones. The general rule of thumb in using these levels is to buy from support (with stops the other side of the level) and sell from resistance (with stops the other side of the level). These levels are also good places in order to take profits as price will often reverse at key horizontal support or resistance levels, if only to retrace before continuing the move, so taking partial profit or moving positions to break even makes sense.

Moving averages

Another basic and common place to find support and resistance is with moving averages. Now moving averages are slightly different to horizontal and support levels as they can, at times, be respected quite accurately.

Although there will be occasions where the moving averages try to break through their levels, often the closing price will demonstrate whether the buyers or sellers have won that battle or not. Two of the most popular moving averages are the 100 and 200MA. By using these two moving averages traders can find excellent places to limit and define risk.

Looking at the AUD/JPY currency pair below you can see the 100 and 200 MA acting as resistance levels on the daily chart as the AUD/JPY pair was in a down trend. Risk off sentiment and US China trade war rumblings led to a AUD/JPY short bias. The Moving averages provided places for traders to define and limit their risk to take advantage of short trades.

Pivot points

Pivot points are very similar to support and resistance levels since they are horizontal levels in the market which are viewed by lots and lots of traders. In a similar way that Fibonacci levels are respected in the market because many traders are looking at them, pivot points are widely followed levels too.

Part of their widespread appeal is that they are calculated in an objective way, so there is no uncertainty about where they should or shouldn't be. A pivot point is formulated as an average of important prices (high, low, close) from the previous trading period. 

You don't have to calculate the pivot point levels themselves since most charting software will do it for you. You can also install indicators that automatically chart the levels on the chart. The way to use them is to find a currency pair that you think should fundamentally move in price. So, for the sake of this illustration, let's suppose you have decided that you want to try and swing trade the GBP/AUD pair long.

You would then look to buy from either the pivot point or a support level labelled S1, S2, or S3. Have a look at the chart below to see the pivot points labelled on the GBPAUD currency pair.

The key concept to understand regarding support and resistance levels is that they are primarily used by traders to define and limit their risk. It is not advisable to just use technical analysis on its own since the market is driven mainly by sentiment and fundamental analysis.

However, when there is a combination of fundamental reasons for entering a trade and a technical place to define and limit risk then this can make for some successful trades. So, this article has shown you three key basic areas where you can find support and resistance levels: at moving averages, horizontal support and resistance levels and pi

The simple answer is money / currencies. Forex trading is the simultaneous purchase of a currency and the sale of another currency. Currencies are traded through a broker or trader, and are traded in pairs, for example EUR, USD, or GBP and JPY.




Because you do not buy anything physical, this kind of trade can be confusing. Consider buying a currency as a share purchase in a particular country. When you buy, to say the Japanese yen, you actually buy a share in the Japanese economy, as the currency price is a direct reflection of what the market thinks about the current and future health situation of the Japanese economy. Thus, in general, the exchange rate of the currency against other currencies is a reflection of the state of the economy in this country, compared to the economies of other countries.



Currency prices are determined by a number of factors, the most important being the economic and political conditions in the exporting country. Political stability, inflation and interest rates are all factors affecting the price of any currency. In addition, governments can try to control the price of their currency either by causing a surplus in the market (to reduce prices) or to buy on a large scale (to raise prices). However, because of the huge volume of foreign exchange, it is impossible to force one to control the market for any period of time. Market forces will prevail over the long term, making Forex one of the most open and fair investment opportunities available.



Unlike other financial markets such as the New York Stock Exchange, there is no place nor a central bank for the Forex market. The currency market is an inter-bank market, due to the fact that the entire market is operated electronically, within a network of banks, continuously over a period of 24 hours.
