Most simply put, we use one currency to buy another currency on the FX, thus speculating on their future value. The most essential currency is USD. You can find the US Dollar in the biggest portion of currency pairs.

The basic terms to know when trading currencies are:

  • Base Currency
  • Target Currency
  • Pip
  • Spread

STOCKS

Stocks are incredibly small pieces of any said company. Logically, more stocks relate to more influence within an enterprise. Stock price contributes to brand image and the overall value of a business. Shares fluctuate in any given moment, so they are a nice option for thrill-seeking traders.

You can trade stocks on stock exchanges:

  • NYSE
  • NASDAQ
  • Foreign Stock Exchanges

It’s efficient to have a diversified stock portfolio – the more stocks you can operate, the more flexibility you’d have, should the market moves against you. You can go a step further and combine stocks with commodities and bonds for even greater account reliability!

INDICES

Indices are created by combining the value of several different stocks – this is how we get an aggregate value of the whole portion.

Indices were “born” due to the need to analyze the overall market performance back in the day.

Generally, we can see top-performing stocks within a stock index. Here are a number of well-known indices:

  • FTSE 100
  • Dow Jones Industrial Average
  • Dax 30

Indices ease the big-picture analysis of financial markets, but they also present solid profit possibilities to traders. If you wish to dive deeper into index trading, our specialists will be happy to provide guidance and advanced trading strategies to you!
