Advocating a Pure Forex Trading Experience

Macro Equities offers countless opportunities to traders. Before discovering them, take a closer look at everything you need to know about forex trading.

What is Forex?

Forex, also known as foreign exchange trading or FX trading, is a decentralized global market where you can exchange different currencies. Taking part in the foreign exchange market is the easiest and most efficient way of exchanging currencies.

Currency pairs

In the forex market, you trade currency pairs based on currency price speculation. Forex traders buy or sell currency pairs according to speculations on the price difference in order to benefit from this difference. One of the most widely traded forex pairs is the EUR/USD.

Trading Volume

FX is the most widely traded market globally, with an average daily trading volume of $5 trillion. It involves simultaneous buying and selling of a wide range of currencies, and this provides high liquidity and constant opportunities to traders.

Where You Can Trade?

Traders are able to trade currencies from anywhere with an Internet connection and at any time as long as the market is open.

Forex Market Hours

The forex market is open 24 hours a day, from Sunday evening until Friday night. For the reason that there are various international time zones, traders can trade all hours of the day. There are major trading sessions in four locations :

Trading Hours
New York 13:00 - 22:00 GMT
London 08:00 - 17:00 GMT
Tokyo 00:00 - 09:00 GMT
Sydney 22:00 - 07:00 GMT
During certain hours, two sessions overlap. It creates even more volume in the market. Those are:
London & New York [12:00 - 16:00] GMT
Tokyo & London [07:00 - 09:00] GMT
Sydney & Tokyo [00:00 - 06:00] GMT

What is Spread in Forex Trading?

The spread in forex trading is the difference between the buying/bid price and the selling/ask price of a currency pair. When trading forex pairs, a ‘buy’ price that is often above the market price and a ‘sell’ price that is often below the market price. This is the difference between the bid and the ask price which represents the current and actual spread in the forex market plus the additional spread added by the forex broker.

Traders prefer lower (tighter) spreads because it makes the trade less expensive. It also shows that the currency pair is highly liquid and not so volatile, which makes the trade less risky. Wide (high) spreads can be seen when the market is very volatile, and not very liquid.

What is Leverage in Forex Trading?

When trading, forex leverage allows traders to control a larger position with less of their own funds. It allows traders to make more volume transactions by money requirement which is usually ‘borrowed’ from the forex broker. Traders can usually get more leverage on forex than other financial instruments. So, they can control a larger sum of money with a smaller deposit.

Here is an example to understand the leverage procedure: Imagine that you have a 1.000 USD deposit and want to invest worth 100.000 USD. In this scenario, your leverage ratio is 1:100, which means you control 100 times higher than your main deposit. A 1% rise means a 1.000 USD gain while a 1% drop means there is nothing left. So, a forex trader should always consider the risk associated with leverage.

Who Decides on The Forex Prices?

Most of the time, the forex market is driven by demand and supply, as in many other markets. However, broad macroeconomic events like the election of a new president, decisions made by central banks, country-specific factors such as the prevailing interest rate, GDP, unemployment, inflation and the debt can also move the markets. It is highly recommended for traders to follow market news and get an economic calendar to know the forthcoming events in advance that can have influence on the markets.

COMMODITIES TRADING

A modern touch to an ancient trading practice

Commodities are natural resources or agricultural products that can be bought and sold. Grains, coffee, sugar, corn, natural gas, oil, gold, and precious metals are some of the typical examples. From gold to coffee, coal to crude oil, commodities are essential to life – and they have a big influence on the lives of billions of people worldwide through their price fluctuations.

What are the most traded commodities?

Trading commodities is centuries-old, but some commodities are exchanged more often, such as crude oil, natural gas, gold, and coffee in the modern world. Commodities that are traded are usually divided into four categories: metal, energy, livestock and meat, and agricultural.

Macro Equities offers CFDs for Brent, Gold, Copper, Silver and WTI.

How to invest in the commodities market?

There are many ways to trade commodities ­– buying and selling via exchanges or trading them using futures, mutual and index funds, ETFs ( exchange-traded funds ) and ETNs (exchange-traded notes), CFDs (contract for differences) and spread bets (where permitted). Investors generally do not have physical control over the goods. They speculate on the price of commodities and take a buy or sell position on a commodity through an online trading platform.

Specialized in CFD trading, Macro Equities is delighted to offer you a reliable platform to trade Commodity CFDs with tight spreads and excellent conditions.

Liquidity in the commodity market

Liquidity might change due to various reasons, such as supply-demand, climate, and economic policies. For example, wheat can be very volatile because of climate changes and traders can benefit from different strategies during the particular season.

Most commonly traded commodities worldwide include crude oil, natural gas, RBOB gasoline, and agricultural commodities such as sugar, coffee and wheat. Steel, aluminum and iron are also some of the most traded commodities by volume.

STOCKS CFDs

Trade in stocks, invest for the future

Investing in the stock market is a very common way to gain some investment experience in the financial markets. Macro Equities offers an excellent platform in which you can trade stocks confidently via CFDs with exclusive leverage ratios. 

What is the stock market, and how does it work?

Stocks, also known as equities, are fractional parts of a corporation that entitles the owner of the stock to a proportion of the corporation's assets and profits.

A stock market is where stockholders can buy and sell shares of publicly held companies.

Companies sell ownership of stocks, also known as shares of stock, to investors to fundraise. So, investors, who buy stock, technically become part-owners of a publicly-traded company. When stockholders -also referred to as a shareholder, own stock in a company, it means that they can benefit from the company’s success by speculating on the future price movements of the stock based on short-term or long-term changes of that stock in the market.

To understand how stocks, bonds, and other securities are traded, it is important to know that there is this distinction in the market: the primary market and secondary market.

In the primary market, companies sell new stocks and bonds to investors for the first time. The transactions in the primary market are between issuers and buyers. This market is where companies issue new securities. In the secondary market, shares or bonds that can be exchanged between the buyers and sellers. So, the secondary market is actually the stock market in which traders can trade among themselves without the issuing companies’ participation. The transactions in the secondary market are between seller and buyer. In short, Investors buy and sell shares on the secondary market, issued on the primary market. The stock exchange or brokerage company acts as a negotiator in the secondary market. Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange, New York Stock Exchange, or London Stock Exchange are well-known secondary markets worldwide.

How to trade stock CFDs at Macro Equities?

In the stock market, investors buy and sell stocks through a brokerage account established by a financial intermediary. Investors, who prefer long-term profit often hold shares for years, intend to make significant gains from share prices and dividends over time. On the other hand, some investors position themselves aiming to make short-term profits, hold stocks for not a long time in their hands, focusing on which direction the stock will move next, and trying to profit from that movement in a shorter period.

Dividends, rising and falling prices are the main ways to profit from stock prices. News about competitors, upgrades and downgrades by analysts economic and political news and investor sentiment might influence stock prices. So, it is very significant to keep up with the market by following the news, reading the financial journals, or having an account in a trusted and regulated brokerage company like Macro Equities.

By trading CFDs, traders can speculate on stock prices and profit from movements in both directions.

Trade Cryptocurrency CFDs at Macro Equities

Volatile crypto markets are full of opportunities for CFD traders

Cryptocurrencies have been under the spotlight of traders and investors for quite some time. A volatile and liquid instrument, use cases of cryptocurrencies are expanding as they get more popular worldwide. Macro Equities offers CFDs for major cryptocurrencies to traders, allowing you to participate in this exciting new market without owning the asset!

Macro Equities offers CFDs on Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and XRP

What are Cryptocurrency CFDs?

Cryptocurrencies are digital or virtual coins stored and operated on a blockchain —a distributed ledger enforced by a disparate network of computers. The most popular cryptocurrency in the world is Bitcoin (BTC), first issued by a mysterious individual or group named Satoshi Nakamoto, in 2008. Since then, Bitcoin prices have mooned several times, earning Bitcoin owners incredible profits. Other popular cryptocurrencies are Ethereum (ETH), Solana (SOL), and Ripple (XRP).

Cryptocurrency CFDs allow traders to speculate and open positions without having any cryptocurrencies. It enables them to gain exposure to crypto markets with additional benefits of CFD trading.

Downsides of Crypto Spot Trading

Crypto markets are volatile, and as more investors jump on the bandwagon, they get more liquid. Additionally, major companies and even some governments are accepting crypto coins as a method of payment. NFT (Non-fungible tokens) marketplaces and metaverses use crypto as a means of payment.

On the other hand, buying and selling cryptocurrencies has some important problems, one of which is security. There are several concerning cases of crypto exchange hacks, resulting in millions of dollars worth of crypto assets being stolen by hackers. Storage is also considered problematic since crypto wallets are also being targeted by malicious actors. Since crypto markets are not regulated or controlled by central authorities, such incidents result in permanent loss of assets.

In addition to security issues, crypto markets remain highly volatile and unpredictable since the markets are still prone to dramatic fluctuations when “whales” buy or sell large amounts. On top of that, in crypto spot trading, traders have to pay additional fees known as “gas fees”, making spot trading costly.

Why Trade Crypto CFDs?

Traders can easily avoid all problems associated with crypto spot trading by trading cryptocurrencies via CFDs.

  • Using CFDs allows very fast transaction times, which is extremely important for such a volatile market.
  • When trading CFDs, traders do not own the underlying asset but speculate on their future prices. This way, traders can leave security concerns behind.
  • Trading crypto CFDs vs. crypto spot trading is a versus between trading in a regulated market and trading in an unregulated market. CFD trading is considerably safer than regular crypto trading.
  • Volatility can be an advantage in CFD trading as traders can benefit from price movements in both directions and have more freedom in the markets.
  • Leverage in CFD trading enables traders to control significantly larger amounts than their capital, helping them gain more exposure. But please note that leverage is a double-edged sword, magnifying losses as well as gains.
