Today, remote work is more popular than ever. With conventional systems shattered, people are turning to alternative sources of income. Global financial markets are a click away. The foreign exchange is the largest of all: its daily turnover exceeds 6 trillion US dollars. But how does one become a trader?

Every rookie needs experience. The internet has an abundance of educational content, from articles to detailed video tutorials. Start with Forex Trading: A Practical Beginner’s Guide, which is available on https://trade-in.forex/forex-trading-a-practical-beginners-guide/, and create a demo account for training.

Logic of Trades

The value of any currency relies on multiple factors, both political and economic. For instance, collapsing oil prices send currencies of exporting nations down. From domestic policies to international diplomacy, the range is broad. Traders analyse the market using digital charting aids, and base decisions on fundamental or technical analysis (sometimes, both).

Every currency is valued against another one — hence the formula ‘base currency’/’counter (or quote) currency’. When you see that EUR/JPY is priced at 121.139, this means a Euro costs just over 121 Japanese yen. There are two interconnected prices at any given moment — Ask (for the buyer) and Bid (for the seller). The difference is known as ‘spread’, while each 0.0001 is a ‘pip’.

All traded combinations are classified as Major, Minor, or Exotic based on the economies they represent. To make a profit, participants take action depending on their prediction of trends. Suppose you have Euros in your account, and the market is expected to rise. You could buy more Euros now and capitalize on appreciation later (long position). In the opposite scenario, you would sell your instrument via a short position, and buy back more lots afterwards.

Tools for Access

All operations are performed via dedicated terminals, such as MetaTrader 4 or 5. These are comprehensive environments with everything you need:

  • charts and graphs;
  • news updates;
  • position management tools;
  • risk management tools, etc.

A demo account unlocks the system in the simulation mode. This is perfect for training purposes. Once a rookie is sure of their skills, they transition to live trading. Both types of account are created via a broker. This is the intermediary between you and the international exchange.

The Right Mindset

Like any form of investment, currency trades can be risky. Participants may use different ready-made strategies. Some open and close all positions within a single day. Others take a long view, opting for swing trading. There is no universal recipe — success boils down to foresight and effective decision-making.

Trading is not a random process: it is based on fundamental and technical analysis. Modern platforms are packed with analytical aids. Traders should also manage risks through special tools and asset diversification.

The Power of Currency Flows

Every day, immense volumes of currencies circulate on the global marketplace. Through dedicated software, individuals analyse trends and make effective trading decisions. With knowledge and persistence, foreign exchange can be a viable source of income.

Supreme Court Sides With Bits of Gold in Bank Dispute

Supreme Court Sides With Bitcoin Broker “Bits of Gold” in Israeli Bank Dispute

Upon appeal, the Israeli Supreme Court has rejected the closure of Bits of Gold’s banking facilities at Leumi bank, Tel Aviv.

The Israeli cryptocurrency brokerage’s appeal followed a previous ruling against it that has now been set aside by the higher court.

As Israel and many other countries struggle with the accelerated phenomenon of virtual currencies, Leumi Bank recently made the news for being a particularly blunt in its rejection of Bitcoin.

We should of course not be surprised with the banks attitude towards bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency for that matter. keep in mind that the banks become more and more obsolete because of them. Bits of gold versus leumi

They will keep on loosing money which now they make with ridiculous commissions of work that is fully automated. so they will try to see how they are able to make the operation and acquiring cryptos  as hard as possible knowing that they will never be able to stop them.

There is widespread anticipation that the upcoming G20 Summit in March 2018 will produce a global, moderate framework for a regulatory approach. Set against that are persistent hostile stances the world over from banks, asset managers and even governments towards cryptocurrencies.

Now that the countries understand there is money to be made with Taxation in cryptocurrencies they might want to make sure that the banks stay within their lane. 

Apart from the Israeli revenue service opting to tax cryptocurrency assets as “properties” and other more positive developments dating back to mid-2017, Israel remains a strange mix of genteel acceptance alongside wildly opposing voices.

There is thus Hope But no decision

Bits of Gold has fought a David and Goliath battle since their banker decided it wanted to steer clear of all cryptocurrency-related business.

On record as recently telling another bitcoin-related trader that they simply don’t want the business, Leumi Bank’s hard-line stance is accumulating bad press. The second-largest bank in Israel appears as discriminatory when analyzing virtual currency traders and other digital coin businesses.

During 2017, a customer made a bank transfer to the Kraken exchange site for buying bitcoin worth $1000. The bank identified the request, halted it, and started investigating.

The elated CEO of Bits of Gold, Youval Rouach said that “The court’s decision enables us to focus on the growth of the Israeli cryptocurrency community.”

 

The February 26 Supreme Court ruling granted Bits of Gold a temporary injunction against their account closure pending further scrutiny by the bank and other parties. The presiding bench declared that the company had “acted transparently and did not violate any provision of law.”

Calling the bank’s concerns “speculative” and turning an unsympathetic ear to the plaintiff, the ruling does, however, allow for the bank to still close the account on any small technical detail that defies legislation. As a record of a public spat around cryptocurrency’s right to be recognized in many ways, the ruling is seen as a victory for the local cryptocurrency community.

One Small Step Forward

Although not as absolute as nations like China that has opted for draconian bans, Israel is a front line for digital coins’ right not just to exist, but also become assets in the true sense of the word. The Supreme Court noted in its written ruling that Bits of Gold had not made itself guilty of the violation of any standing laws since opening its doors for business.

 

The Bits of Gold v. Leumi Bank case might become something of a test case once the bank applies its mind in scrutinizing the company’s accounts against the backdrop of existing legislation. The outcome will also be informed by sentiment post the G20 Summit due in March as well as other global regulatory trends.

Now that the countries understand there is money to be made with Taxation in cryptocurrencies they might want to make sure that the banks stay within their lane.
