PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE so we can bring you more! They both have their own challenges. Trading an individual stocks depends on the kind of information you are getting.

After a 19-month long investigation, several global banks have agreed to pay penalties to the U.S. Justice Department and the Federal Reserve for rigging the foreign exchange market.

Five banks were fined a total of around US .6 billion after pleading guilty to manipulating the foreign exchange market on Wednesday. Bank of America was fined separately by the U.S. Federal Reserve.

According to the investigation, senior traders from each bank met in a private chat room daily and used coded language to discuss moving the daily benchmark exchange rates set for the USD and the Euro. The exchange rate benchmarks are calculated each day based on actual buy and sell transactions conducted by forex traders, and using the median rate of all trades that go through within a one minute period around 4 p.m. GMT.

In the chat rooms, the traders exchanged pending client orders. With knowledge of an impending exchange, a trader may sell his Euros for USD before 4 p.m. Hoping to then bring down the price of the Euro, the trader and his counterparts at other banks will aggressively sell Euros from their ‘sell-Euro’ client orders. This skews the market’s impression of supply and demand, thereby bringing down the price of the Euro.

The trader is then able to buy back Euros with the U.S. dollars he had previously exchanged Euros for, and pockets the profits earned.

The resolution of the U.S. investigation includes some of the largest fines ever levied by the U.S. Justice Department for antitrust violations. UK and Swiss financial regulators are conducting their own separate investigations into the ‘forex scandal.’

Africa’s first Forex trading retail lounge opens in SA

http://www.youtube.com/v/GELdyLbPtSo?fs=1

Forex is the largest financial market in the world. It is how individuals and businesses convert one currency to another. Each day over 4 Trillion dollars are traded. Unlike stocks or commodities there’s no central exchange. Instead, currencies are traded by a global network of banks, dealers and brokers, which means you can trade any time, day or night, Monday to Friday. Because of the sheer volume of currency traders and the amount of money exchanged, price movements can happen very quickly, making currency trading not only the largest financial market in the world, but also one of the most volatile.

What is FOREIGN EXCHANGE FRAUD? What does FOREIGN EXCHANGE FRAUD mean? FOREIGN EXCHANGE FRAUD meaning –
FOREIGN EXCHANGE FRAUD definition – FOREIGN EXCHANGE FRAUD explanation.

Foreign exchange fraud is any trading scheme used to defraud traders by convincing them that they can expect to gain a high profit by trading in the foreign exchange market. Currency trading became a common form of fraud early 2008, according to Michael Dunn of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

The foreign exchange market is at best a zero–sum game, meaning that whatever one trader gains, another loses. However, brokerage commissions and other transaction costs are subtracted from the results of all traders, making foreign exchange a negative-sum game.

In August 2008, the CFTC set up a special task force to deal with growing foreign exchange fraud. In January 2010, the CFTC proposed new rules limiting leverage to 10 to 1, based on ” a number of improper practices” in the retail foreign exchange market, “among them solicitation fraud, a lack of transparency in the pricing and execution of transactions, unresponsiveness to customer complaints, and the targeting of unsophisticated, elderly, low net worth and other vulnerable individuals.”

In 2012, Christopher Ehrman, an SEC veteran, was selected to run the new SEC Office of the Whistleblower.

Frauds might include churning of customer accounts for the purpose of generating commissions, selling software that is supposed to guide the customer to large profits, improperly managed “managed accounts”, false advertising, Ponzi schemes and outright fraud. It also refers to any retail forex broker who indicates that trading foreign exchange is a low risk, high profit investment.

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), which loosely regulates the foreign exchange market in the United States, has noted an increase in the amount of unscrupulous activity in the non-bank foreign exchange industry. Between 2001 and 2006 the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission has prosecuted more than 80 cases involving the defrauding of more than 23,000 customers who lost 0 million. From 2001 to 2007, about 26,000 people lost 0 million in forex frauds.

The foreign exchange market is a zero sum game in which there are many experienced, well-capitalized professional traders (e.g. working for banks) who can devote their attention full-time to trading. An inexperienced retail trader will have a significant information disadvantage compared to these traders.

Retail traders are, almost by definition, undercapitalized. Thus, they are subject to the problem of gambler’s ruin: in a “fair game” (one with no information advantages) the player with the lower amount of capital has a higher probability of going bankrupt than a high-capital player. The retail trader always pays the bid/ask spread which makes their odds of winning less than those of a fair game. Additional costs may include margin interest or, if a spot position is kept open for more than one day, the trade may be “resettled” each day, each time costing the full bid/ask spread. In some variations of forex trading, the customers do not obtain normal fungible futures, but instead make a contract with some named company. Even if the company claims to act as their “forex dealer”, it is financially interested in making the retail customer lose money. The contract is directly between the customer and the pseudo-dealer, so it is an off-exchange one; it cannot be normally registered and traded on futures exchanges.

Although it is possible for a few experts to successfully arbitrage the market for an unusually large return, this does not mean that a larger number could earn the same returns even given the same tools, techniques and data sources. This is because the arbitrages are essentially drawn from a pool of finite size; although information about how to capture arbitrages is a nonrival good, the arbitrages themselves are a rival good. (To draw an analogy, the total amount of buried treasure on an island is the same, regardless of how many treasure hunters have bought copies of the treasure map.)

By offering high leverage some market makers encourage traders to trade extremely large positions. This increases the trading volume cleared by the market maker and increases their profit, but increases the risk that the trader will receive a margin call. While professional currency dealers such as banks and hedge funds tend to use no more than 10:1 leverage, retail clients may be offered leverage between 50:1 and 400:1.
