West River Academy's Class of 2010 included 40 graduates from all over the world. While most were in the US, we also had 2 in China, 1 in Spain, 1 in Germany, 2 in Colombia, 7 in Chile, 1 in Taiwan, 2 in Korea and 1 in Japan. The ones in the picture were the 6 who chose to come to Grand Junction, Colorado to participate in the Commencement Exercises. And what was special for me was the graduation of my youngest daughter, Rachel (to my right in the photo). Each graduate gave a short speech, some with powerpoint, movie or musical presentations. Truly, each one was a valedictorian!
The foreign exchange market is global, and it is conducted over-the-counter (OTC) through the use of electronic trading platforms, or by telephone through trading desks. Some shorten the term to “forex” or “FX”. The OTC market is also known as the “spot”, “cash”, or “off-exchange” forex market. (A spot transaction refers to an exchange of currencies at the prevailing market rate.) Futures and futures options on different currencies can be traded on centralized boards of trade, or exchanges, such as the CME Group. The spot/cash/OTC/off-exchange forex market is not a market in the traditional sense, because there is no central trading location, or exchange. Rather, it is an interconnected telephone and electronic network of bank traders, dealers, brokers and fund managers for electronic transfers of money from one account into another account. The interbank market is one in which huge banks, insurance companies, corporations and other financial institutions manage the risks associated with fluctuations in currency rates by trading in large quantities. The secondary market – the OTC market – has developed more recently, permitting retail (smaller) investors to participate in forex markets. The OTC market has many of the same characteristics of the interbank market but it doesn’t provide the same prices, as the size of trades, and the volumes, are much smaller. Trading forex is buying one currency while at the same time selling a different currency. Some companies who do business in other countries use forex markets to convert profits from foreign sales into their domestic currency. Other reasons for trading forex include speculation for profit, or to hedge against currency fluctuations. SIZE AND DEPTH OF THE MARKET: Foreign exchange is the largest market in the world, with volume that exceeds commodities, financial futures and stocks by far. The Euro currency volume alone is more than 5 times the entire NYSE. The industry estimates that about $3.2 trillion of turnover occurs daily, on average, in global OTC foreign currency trading. A true, 24-hour-a-day market, 5 days a week, it begins on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. Eastern standard time, and goes through Friday at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time. Forex trading opens in Sydney and moves across the globe through Tokyo, London, and New York time zones. Investors and traders can respond immediately to currency fluctuations whenever they occur, no matter whether it is daytime or night. They can usually get in or out of the market without waiting for an opening bell or facing a market gap in liquidity that would be normal in stock trading. The forex market is a highly transparent market. That means that all current market information and news are widely accessible to all participants. THE MAJORS: S even currencies are the most actively traded of the world’s monies, and they are called the majors. Here they are listed with their symbols: ...

Until recently, trading in the forex market had been the domain of large financial institutions, corporations, central banks, hedge funds and extremely wealthy individuals. The emergence of the internet has changed all of this, and now it is possible for average investors to buy and sell currencies easily with the click of a mouse. Daily currency fluctuations are usually very small. Most currency pairs move less than one cent per day, representing a less than 1% change in the value of the currency. This makes foreign exchange one of the least volatile financial markets around. Therefore, many speculators rely on the availability of enormous leverage to increase the value of potential movements. In the forex market, leverage can be as much as 250:1. Higher leverage can be extremely risky, but because of round-the-clock trading and deep liquidity, foreign exchange brokers have been able to make high leverage an industry standard in order to make the movements meaningful for FX traders.

Extreme liquidity and the availability of high leverage have helped to spur the market's rapid growth and made it the ideal place for many traders. Positions can be opened and closed within minutes or can be held for months. Currency prices are based on objective considerations of supply and demand and cannot be manipulated easily because the size of the market does not allow even the largest players, such as central banks, to move prices at will. The forex market provides plenty of opportunity for investors. However, in order to be successful, a currency trader has to understand the basics behind currency movements. The goal of this tutorial is to provide a foundation for investors or traders who are new to the currency markets. We'll cover the basics of foreign exchange, its history and the key concepts you need to understand in order to be able to participate in this market. We'll also venture into how to start trading currencies and the different types of strategies that can be employed. What Is It? The foreign exchange market is the "place" where currencies are traded. Currencies are important to most people around the world, whether they realize it or not, because currencies need to be exchanged in order to conduct foreign trade and business. If you are living in the U.S. and want to buy cheese from France, either you or the company that you buy the cheese from has to pay the French for the cheese in euros (EUR). This means that the U.S. importer would have to exchange the equivalent value of U.S. dollars (USD) into euros. The same goes for traveling. A French tourist in Egypt can't pay in euros to see the pyramids because it's not the locally accepted currency. As such, the tourist has to exchange the euros for the local currency, in this case the Egyptian pound, at the current exchange rate. The need to exchange currencies is the primary reason why the forex market is the largest, most liquid financial market in the world. It dwarfs other markets in size, even the stock market, with an average traded value of around U.S. $2,000 billion per day. (The total volume changes all the time, but as of April 2004, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) reported that the forex market traded U.S. $1,900 billion per day.) One unique aspect of this international market is that there is no central marketplace for currency exchange. Rather, trade is conducted electronically over-the-counter (OTC), which means that all transactions occur via computer networks between traders around the world, rather than on one centralized This tutorial can be found at:
As discussed, all clients of United Mutual must qualify as Wholesale, and as such are assumed to have a good understanding of FX Markets and how they work, along with the use and consequences of margin and leverage. However, it never hurts to ‘brush up’, and we’ve therefore produced this document which summarizes the basics of Forex trading. Please note, United Mutual does NOT trade the ‘traditional’ way, and as such many of the topics and comments following are not applicable to our trading. When you read this document, keep in mind that our system and algorithm is unique in its application. www.unitedmutual.com.au Page 1 Forex Basics What is FOREX? The Foreign Exchange market - also referred to as "FOREX", "Forex", "Retail forex", "FX", "Spot FX" or just "Spot" - is the largest financial market in the world, with a volume of over $4 trillion a day. If you compare that to the $25 billion a day volume that the New York Stock Exchange trades, you can easily see how enormous the Foreign Exchange really is. It equates to more than three times the total amount of the stocks and futures markets combined! What is traded on the Foreign Exchange market? The simple answer is money. Forex trading is the simultaneous buying of one currency and the selling of another. Currencies are traded through a broker or dealer, and are traded in pairs; for example the euro and the US dollar (EUR/USD) or the British pound and the Japanese Yen (GBP/JPY). Because you're not buying anything physical, this kind of trading can be confusing. Think of buying a currency as buying a share in a particular country. When you buy the Japanese Yen, you are in effect buying a share in the Japanese economy, as the price of the currency is a direct reflection of what the market thinks about the current and future health of the Japanese economy. In general, the exchange rate of a currency versus other currencies is a reflection of the condition of that country's economy, compared to the other countries' economies. Unlike other financial markets like the New York Stock Exchange or the ASX, the Forex spot market has neither a physical location nor a central exchange. The Forex market is considered an Over-the-Counter (OTC) or 'Interbank' market, due to the fact that the entire market is run electronically, within a network of banks, continuously over a 24-hour period. Until the late 1990's, only the "big guys" could play this game. The initial requirement was that you could trade only if you had about ten to fifty million bucks to start with. Forex was originally intended to be used by bankers, large institutions, and commercial accounts only. However, because of the rise of the Internet, online Forex trading firms are now able to offer trading accounts to smaller traders like us. However, the reality is to trade FX with adequate risk management, a large account is still required. Despite many websites, brokers and ‘education’ companies telling you otherwise, trading FX the traditional way – that is, trying to pick the direction correctly – is as close to a...

Charts are a forex trader’s best friend. As a Forex trader, you will most likely utilize your price charts more than any other available tool. Since your charts are going to play such a large part in your trading, it is imperative you become familiar with them. The more comfortable you are with your charts, the easier it will be to become a successful forex trader. To help you become acquainted with your charts and how you can effectively use them, we will cover the following concepts:The X axis runs horizontally along the bottom of the chart providing a timeline for everything that has happened on the chart. The most recent price action is shown on the right side of the chart and the most distant price action is shown on the left side of the chart. CHART SETUP Let’s start from the very beginning and take a look at how a forex price chart is set up. Once you understand the basics, you will be much more successful applying more advanced concepts to your technical analysis. The Y axis runs vertically along the right side of the chart providing a price scale for the price movement on the chart. Lower prices are shown toward the bottom of the chart and higher prices are shown toward the top of the chart. Forex price charts are built on two axes—the X axis (horizontal axis) and the Y axis (vertical axis). When you put the two axes together, you can see at what price a currency pair was trading at a particular time in the past. For example, you can see that the EUR/USD was trading at 1.4000 on 20 September 2007. 2 CHART TIME FRAMES Saxo Bank forex charts give you the ability to analyze the price movement of your favorite currency pair anywhere from a minute-by-minute basis to a month-by-month basis. You have the flexibility to choose which time frame is best for you. If you are a shorter-term trader, you will want to use shorter time frames for your charts. If you are a longer-term trader, you will want to use longer time frames for your charts. For example, a trader who is looking to quickly jump in and out of trades for 10- to 20-pip profits would most likely want to be watching a 1-minute or a 5-minute chart. A trader who is looking to hold onto trades for a longer period of time to take advantage of larger price moves would most likely want to be watching an hourly or a daily chart. Some traders even choose to use multiple time frames so they can see how the movement of a currency pair looks from various points of view. We will discuss this concept in detail in a later section. 3 To change the time frame on your chart to best match your trading style, click on the button at the top of the chart. A drop-down menu will appear, and you can select your preferred time frame. CHART TYPES Saxo Bank forex charts give you the ability to analyze the price movement of your favorite currency pair in various formats, from line charts to candlestick charts. You have the flexibility to choose which format is best for you. Technical analysis is a visual, almost artistic, skill that traders develop, and different traders like to practice their art on different types of charts. Some traders feel they can see and analyze support and resistance levels better on a line chart, while other traders feel they get more information on price movement on a bar chart or a candlestick chart. Technical analysts tend to gravitate toward the following three chart types: ...
