Australian Dollar Rises to One-Month High as RBA Refrains From Cutting Rates

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

Australia’s dollar rose to a one-month high and bond yields rebounded from the lowest ever as the central bank refrained from cutting interest rates.

The Reserve Bank of Australia left the benchmark rate at a record-low 1.75 percent, as forecast by all but one economist surveyed by news agency Bloomberg. Most expect the central bank to resume easing in August after a quarter-point reduction in May in response to a record-low core inflation reading.

“Last night’s RBA policy statement was judged as lacking an explicit easing bias,” said Jane Foley, a senior currency strategist at Rabobank International in London. “While this assessment has lent the Australian dollar significant support this morning, there are sufficient negative nuances contained within the RBA’s policy outlook to infer that the prospect of an August rate cut remain very strong.”

Learn more about Plus500 and how they got to be publicly listed

Thursday, April 10th, 2014

One of the most wonderful things about the inexorable rise of the internet is the way it has given almost anybody with some money to invest and a willing mind the opportunity the experiment with, and hopefully profit from, many financial instruments which only a few years ago were the sole domain of elite City traders.

Over that same time period, many online trading companies have come into existence to fulfill demand from the general public for the opportunity to trade with these instruments.

Plus500 is one of these companies, so let’s take a look at it in closer detail.

eToro social trading platform logoFollowing eToro’s license approval by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in May of this year, the world’s number one social investment network is on the verge of setting up shop in London.

FCA approval is a significant gain for eToro. The approval affirms eToro’s entitlement to offer financial services to UK users, and is a confirmation of its compliance with applicable regulations.

In all likelihood, the FCA approval will considerably add to the company’s rapid growth in the UK area.

Forex Broker Review by SmartMoney.com

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

American magazine SmartMoney made a ranking of forex brokers earlier this week. Their review include best forex education material, software, actual spread and customer service.

With other words, their fx review is not as detailed as OnlineForex spread, but still worth to have a look at. Below you find the results for best forex brokers according to SmartMoney.com:

Forex Education Material

Best education material was provided by TD Ameritrade, according to SmartMoney.com. They have both clear and accurate fx education material, but was not significant better than most other brokers. FXDD was the losing broker in this chapter. Reason for their loss is that it is hard to navigate and they offer very basic material.

Forex Software

Meta trader software is state of the art, it seems like. However, TD Ameritrade’s software was the least impressive in the review.

Forex Spread

When SmartMoney.com measure actual spread, FXCM actually lost. This might be a surprise, since they have a rather low absolute spread. But in reality, it often gets wider during volantile market conditions.

Customer Service

Worst customer service in the forex review by SmartMoney is offered by Alpari. In the worst, you have to wait over 20 minutes to get support from Alpari. I rather suggest going to ForexYard instead if you want quick customer support.
