Forex Basics For Beginners

5668 ratings | 419560 views
Too often new traders come into the market without getting to know the most fundamental components of foreign exchange and how currencies work. So we decided to make a video that explains the first things traders need to know in an easy and accessible way. Demonstrating them in the Trading 212 platform in a zero spread environment, trading expert David Jones guides you through the meaning of the first terms and actions that you'll come across. These are always at the base of the skills all knowledgeable traders have and need to take on the markets. At Trading 212 we provide an execution only service. This video should not be construed as investment advice. Investments can fall and rise. Capital at risk. CFDs are higher risk because of leverage.

3:05 THANK YOU - SPOT ON - this is exactly what I was searching for. I knew I was over complicating things but the fact they are pairs confused me. Trading212 looks absolutely stunning. I've been looking for an interface like this with EVERYTHING I need. Does it have StochasticRSI? Can I do StochasticRSI and MACD at the same time? What about Bollinger bands and EMA? All 4 simultaneously? I love that I can try and predict it's going to go down and still make money off of it unlike say crypto where you just don't buy it because it's plummeting and there's nothing indicating it will ever go back up :)
Trading 212 (19 hours ago)
You may want to explore the technical indicators available on Trading 212. The MACD, Bollinger Bands and the EMA are available and may be applied simultaneously on the same chart.

suppose I reside in the European Union and I buy 1000 units of EUR/USD at the rate of 1.2030 and after sometimes, it reaches 1.3046 and I decide to sell, How is it profitable for me? I will still be paying in Euro?????

@UCfWQuGYMfhZk9qq5x00sb9w got it. Thanks. Out of context, so China knowingly manipulates its currency and with an ongoing trade war, if you were to trade USD/RMB or RMB/USD, what would you do and why?
Trading 212 (22 days ago)
Hi Sashank, in relation to CFDs trading, traders benefit from the difference between the prices at which they have opened and closed the position. In your particular example with EUR/USD, the result when trading currency pairs is measured in the quote currency (the second one), hence in USD. Please note that in case the currency of your trading account is different than the one in which the result from a particular position is measured, it will be converted to the currency of your trading account. So, for instance, in case your trading account's currency is GBP, the result from the position will be automatically converted from USD to GBP.

Forex is a really difficult business. To make money with forex, you have to know the technique and have enough experience or you lose more than what you make.
junaid khalid (5 days ago)
its not risky if you manage your risk and educate yourself regarding the market, how it moves and works, and practice using indicators to better predict the future of the market. all u need is YouTube to learn whatever u want or need to, and ur on ur way to making some big bucks
Allen mery (25 days ago)
I think what he's trying to say is The key to creating a successful carry trade strategy is not simply to pair up the currency with the highest interest rate against a currency with the lowest rate. Rather, far more important than the absolute spread itself is the direction of the spread. In order for carry trades to work best, you need to be long in a currency with an interest rate that is in the process of expanding against a currency with a stationary or contracting interest rate.

Hi Conor, you have to be at least 18 years old to trade with real money on Trading 212. Currently, the minimum deposit amount is GBP 100, EUR 100 or USD 150. Local currencies are also supported in certain countries.
Can i hold a stock for as long as i like. For example if im losing money could i hold these currencies e.g. 6months until i'll be making a profit and then sell. Or do i always need to sell before the end of the week
Trading 212 (5 months ago)
Hi there, is relation to Forex and CFDs trading you may keep your positions open as long as you have sufficient funds on your trading account, or until the expiration date, in case you are trading CFDs on futures contracts.

What's your opinion on trailing stop losses?
David Jones (1 year ago)
I think they are a great idea when a trade has moved a decent amount in your favour. A way of locking in some profit along the way, but giving the trade more room to hopefully make more profit.
