Social trading takes place on modern online trading platforms that facilitate both copy trading and social interaction (centred around trading/market information) between the different users of these social trading platforms.
On social trading platforms, like eToro, trade ideas and details can be shared effortlessly between members. Investors and traders can also automatically copy the trades of experienced popular investors into their trading accounts by simply allocating portions of their trading capital to these individuals.
These are the most prominent ways to tackle forex, commodities, and stock indices:
• Trade with live trading signals/trading alerts.
• Learn to trade these instruments yourself.
• Social/copy trading - copy experienced traders’ trades directly into your trading account.

The sky's the limit! These markets offer highly liquid instruments that trade in large volumes. This makes it possible for traders to execute massive trade positions with little or no slippage.

Yes, it is. You can start trading forex with as little as $100. The availability of leverage enables small traders to open micro lot (1000 of a currency pair) forex trades with less than $15. This depends on the amount of leverage your broker offers, of course.
Traders who first want to acquaint themselves with the FX market before risking their capital, can open a free demo account with one of our recommended forex brokers and practise FX trading with virtual money.
Simply put, using leverage with forex trading means that a large trade position can be controlled with a small amount of money. For example, with some forex brokers who offer 1:500 leverage, you can buy or sell 1000 units of the USD/JPY currency pair with a ‘deposit’ of $2. The notional trade size of a 1K USD/JPY position is 1000 dollars. This means that with 1:500 leverage, you only need $2 to open a position worth $1000. The remaining $998 is borrowed from the forex broker. Of course, a trader will need more than $2 to maintain this position once it is opened.
Using leverage to trade forex has the potential to magnify both gains and losses. The use of excessive leverage is a major reason why beginning traders lose money in the FX market.
Some traders like to short (sell) stocks when instability weighs on capital markets. Although this sounds like a good idea, it carries much more risk than buying (going long) stocks. This is because the maximum payoff on a short stock trade is 100%, which occurs when its price falls to zero. On the other hand, the potential loss on a short stock trade is theoretically infinite.
Contrary to this, whether a trader goes long (buys) or shorts (sells) a currency pair, the maximum loss on both sides is 100% while the maximum gain is theoretically unlimited. Thus, whether you’re buying or selling a currency pair, you don’t face the risk-to-reward ‘imbalance’ associated with shorting stocks. This makes forex trading more flexible and less risky than trading stocks in times when stock markets are at risk. Another advantage of trading in the forex market is the immense liquidity it offers, especially with the major currency pairs.
Nothing is 100% sure in forex, that’s why it is a tough business. But profits are there to be made if you know how to analyze the markets.
When looking at the higher time frames like the daily and weekly charts, the U.S. dollar is trending lower against most of its major counterparts. Consequently, the U.S. Dollar index is in an established downtrend.
As long as this index remains below certain important moving averages (e.g. the 200-day moving average), there is no reason to fight the prevailing downtrend. An important support level has also been broken on the U.S. Dollar index late in 2017 and this same level could act as resistance in the near future.
The most probable market direction for the dollar is lower and hence we remain bearish going into 2018.
A blockchain is a public distributed digital ledger which keeps account of transactions in a decentralised fashion. The ledger is updated in real-time and all parties have a copy of this ledger. Cryptocurrency transactions are grouped together in blocks and added to the blockchain chronologically. Entries in the blockchain ledger cannot be altered retroactively because it would necessitate all the subsequent blocks to be altered and would require the cooperation of the different parties in the network.
With these aspects in mind, blockchain technology is an excellent solution to facilitate the decentralized, peer-to-peer nature of numerous cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin.
