An investor can profit from the difference between two interest rates in two different economies by buying the currency with the higher interest rate and shorting the currency with the lower interest rate. Prior to the 2008 financial crisis, it was very common to short the Japanese yen (JPY) and buy British pounds (GBP) because the interest rate differential was very large. This strategy is sometimes referred to as a "carry trade."
I have had a really bad experience with Rob Bookers TFL365 membership program. The one a day videos dried up completely at day 122. Then started after a while from number one again with a different format. Then at number 26 they dried up because he was promoting a course with his girlfriend. I asked for a refund and he has refused. Its a shame as the content and dedication started out ok then dried up as if he had given up or was distracted. The live TV stopped, the videos stop and the trae recommendations stopped.

Yet curiously, Chapter 3 in Boris and Kathy's book Millionaire Traders (published in 2007) features an interview with none other than the same Mr Booker, the "100 pip trader" ("in less than 5 years, he's gone from being a $2,500 trader to a client of a major bank who trades a respectable size account" -- see p37). Assuming that B&K performed some background research before selecting their interviewees, then being the subject of such a book creates the impression that Rob has in fact made a 7 figure sum from trading. Hence I don't know what to make of it all.

Any forex transaction that settles for a date later than spot is considered a "forward." The price is calculated by adjusting the spot rate to account for the difference in interest rates between the two currencies. The amount of adjustment is called "forward points." The forward points reflect only the interest rate differential between two markets. They are not a forecast of how the spot market will trade at a date in the future.
The blender costs $100 to manufacture, and the U.S. firm plans to sell it for €150—which is competitive with other blenders that were made in Europe. If this plan is successful, the company will make $50 in profit because the EUR/USD exchange rate is even. Unfortunately, the USD begins to rise in value versus the euro until the EUR/USD exchange rate is .80, which means it now costs $0.80 to buy €1.00.
Modeled after successful motor clubs in Europe and the coastal United States, Houston Motor Club is not a car rental company or a “one-day driving experience”. Rather, we are a private, members-only club that exists for the sole purpose of affording our members with exclusive access to the club’s fleet of vehicles. It is an experience like no other.
Hi, I think I paid like 365 euros, I sent Rob and email directly, he said that "tomorrow I will post 5 more videos" which never arrived even a week later. I emailed again and he is not replying. So half a course and no daily "Coffee and charts" look at the technicals for the day. Real shame when people give up on providing the service which dedicate members, once trying to learn and develop daily have paid for.

Forex (FX) is the marketplace where various national currencies are traded. The forex market is the largest, most liquid market in the world, with trillions of dollars changing hands every day. There is no centralized location, rather the forex market is an electronic network of banks, brokers, institutions, and individual traders (mostly trading through brokers or banks).
The broker basically resets the positions and provides either a credit or debit for the interest rate differential between the two currencies in the pairs being held. The trade carries on and the trader doesn't need to deliver or settle the transaction. When the trade is closed the trader realizes their profit or loss based on their original transaction price and the price they closed the trade at. The rollover credits or debits could either add to this gain or detract from it.
In very basic terms, he teaches a simple strategy, and then coaches people to use it. His following is not massive - about 2,500 traders using it he says. At first I was very sceptical, because he seemed like an internet snakeoil salesman. But his honesty in being a sleezy internet salesman is refreshing. He will happily share how much money he makes from TFL (Trading For a Living) and how much from trading. He shares his losers as well.
One unique aspect of this international market is that there is no central marketplace for foreign exchange. Rather, currency trading is conducted electronically over-the-counter (OTC), which means that all transactions occur via computer networks between traders around the world, rather than on one centralized exchange. The market is open 24 hours a day, five and a half days a week, and currencies are traded worldwide in the major financial centers of London, New York, Tokyo, Zurich, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore, Paris and Sydney—across almost every time zone. This means that when the trading day in the U.S. ends, the forex market begins anew in Tokyo and Hong Kong. As such, the forex market can be extremely active any time of the day, with price quotes changing constantly.
In situations of economic uncertainty like we are facing right now, the best defense for your hard earned dollars is to be as well-informed and educated as you possibly can. Following the news that impact the markets, researching companies and following the markets should be a full-time job (unless you want to risk your money... you are probably better of at a roulette table).
These articles, on the other hand, discuss currency trading as buying and selling currency on the foreign exchange (or "Forex") market with the intent to make money, often called "speculative forex trading". XE does not offer speculative forex trading, nor do we recommend any firms that offer this service. These articles are provided for general information only.
