Looking to trade currencies in the international forex market from Sudan? You’ll have numerous options thanks to the advent of online forex trading and the subsequent proliferation of online forex brokers catering to retail traders. Local markets are not as open, however, since Sudan ranks only 173rd among the freest economies in the world, according to Heritage.org’s 2020 Index of Economic Freedom. When it comes to fiscal health, Sudan is only ranked 44th out of 47 sub-Saharan African countries — the country has overspending issues so its government debt presents a default risk. 

Corruption has also been an issue historically. The country ranked a rather dismal 172nd out of 180 countries in the 2018 Corruption Perceptions Index by Transparency International. Former President Omar al-Bashir was even indicted in 2019 on money-laundering and corruption charges after a military coup that year removed him from power.

The Sudanese pound (SDG) is relatively stable versus the U.S. dollar to which it has been pegged since around 1984, although it has fallen notably in value versus the U.S. dollar in a series of devaluation steps seen since early 2018. Forex trading was completely stopped at one point in 2019 after the successful military coup, and the currency lost value it has yet to recover. 

As a result of this decline in value, inflation in Sudan continues to be a problem. The decreased purchasing power of the Sudanese pound tends to reduce private consumption and dissuade foreign investors. Despite this, the country continues to move forward with U.S. trade talks in exchange for a more consistent internal crackdown on terrorist activities. Sudan is also currently taking measures to stabilize its currency.

Get Started with Forex in Sudan

Many top foreign forex brokers offer their services to Sudanese traders that would generally offer considerably greater security for a margin deposit than a local broker could. You can connect to these brokers via the internet and start to trade currencies from Sudan by having these steps.

  1. Secure reliable internet.  To take part in online forex trading, you will need a reliable internet connection. You are more likely to find this in larger cities such as Omdurman or Khartoum.
  2. Choose a regulated foreign broker.  Many well-regulated foreign brokers offer their services to residents of Sudan. Make sure the broker you choose is regulated through a well-known authority such as the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
  3. Open a trading account.  Most online brokers have several account types that differ with respect to their initial deposit requirements and the trading perks provided. Choose the account type that makes sense for you and apply for it on the broker’s website.  
  4. Fund your trading account.  Online brokers generally allow you to fund your trading account with a bank wire transfer or debit card so that you can trade on margin. Many also let you use electronic payment services like Skrill or Paypal to fund an account. You can start with small deposits and test your ability to make withdrawals from your account before you fully fund it to make sure that you can efficiently move money where you need it to be.
  5. Get a latency-free trading platform.  You will probably need a trading platform supported by your broker that provides an intuitive connection to the forex market and some analytical functions without adding any lag to your trade executions.
  6. Begin your 1st trade.  Test every aspect of your online trading setup before putting real money on the line. You can also trade in a demo account first to practice using your broker’s platform and make sure your chosen trading strategy can be profitable. 

Sudan Forex Trading Strategies

Having a suitable trading environment is the first thing you’ll need to start operating in the forex market. The next goal is a successful trading strategy. Many traders trade forex profitably using one or more of these trading strategy types.

The Day Trader

Day traders generally enter and exit all positions within a single trading session to avoid the extra risk involved in holding positions overnight. You should probably avoid day trading from Sudan unless you have a stable internet connection with enough bandwidth to do the analysis you require and let you get out of a position whenever you feel the need to. If you day trade, you will be competing with experienced professional traders with very sophisticated setups and inside knowledge of large order flows, so you may find yourself at a disadvantage. 

The Swing Trader

Swing or momentum trading typically involves watching technical momentum indicators with the goal of profiting from both trends and their corrections. Begin to learn how to swing trade by researching the most popular trading indicators swing traders use and how they can signal market reversals. You should also know how to enter orders and have the discipline to get out of a position when the market reaches your stop loss level. Swing traders can hold overnight positions and they need to filter out trivial intraday volatility to be successful following the more significant market swings.

The Position Trader

Position or trend traders tend to be patient individuals who wait to identify and then follow market trends to their conclusion. They may also do the fundamental research to discover and position themselves to take advantage of market valuation irregularities that should eventually be corrected. They often have a lot of experience studying financial markets. 

The trading frequency of the trend trader is generally considerably lower than that of day traders or swing traders, but the profits are usually bigger on a winning trade that they often protect with trailing stops. Position traders also know how to ignore the short-term exchange rate swings that occur because of news releases and large transactions.

Forex Trading Example in Sudan

Since few, if any, major online brokers offer trading in the SGD, and the USD/SGD exchange rate is also relatively stable outside of its devaluation phases, most traders in Sudan will want to operate in other currency pairs. 

As an example, let’s say that 106.10/15 is the current bid/ask dealing spread at your broker for the U.S. dollar (USD) versus the Japanese yen (JPY) or USD/JPY currency pair. You think the pair’s exchange rate will rise, so you buy a standard lot of $100,000 versus the yen at 106.15. Since your broker allows you to use a leverage ratio of 100:1, you will need to have at least $1,000 deposited in your trading account to collateralize a trade of that size. 

After 10 hours, the bid side from the USD/JPY exchange rate moves up by 20 pips to 106.35, so you decide to close out your entire position at that level. Your profit is (USD100,000 x 0.20) or 20,000 JPY ($188.06). Had the market instead fallen by 20 pips, you would have lost that same amount of yen. 

Making Money with Forex in Sudan

Your overall trading strategy determines how you move in and out of the forex market on a day-to-day basis. Here are some additional terms you may need to know as a forex trader.

  • Going short: You go short a currency pair when you net sell its base currency against its counter currency. You generally go short a currency pair when you think its exchange rate will decline.  
  • CFDs: Contracts for difference (CFDs) are derivative financial instruments that generally have their value determined by that of the spot market for the underlying asset. Traders can use forex CFDs instead of trading the underlying currency pairs. 
  • Binary options: Exotic derivatives where the holder of the binary option pays a fixed premium to get a fixed payout from the seller if a specific market condition is met at or before expiration. 

Best Online Forex Brokers in the Sudan

Sudan has attracted forex brokers from all over the world that will accept its residents as clients. Doing business with a foreign broker really makes the most sense to avoid scams, as long as they are well-regulated in their local jurisdictions and you can readily fund a trading account with them from your available risk capital. Check out the table below of online forex brokers that will take clients from Sudan. 

Forex Terminology

These forex terms are helpful to learn if you want to communicate with other forex market participants. A small mistake in input or a misunderstanding can cost you a substantial amount of money almost instantly.

  • Pip: The minimum exchange rate movement in a particular currency pair. For most pairs, a pip represents a movement of 0.0001 in their exchange rate. 
  • Lot size: A standardized trading amount. At online forex brokers, a standard lot is generally 100,000 base currency units, and many brokers allow trading in mini lots of 10,000 and micro-lots of 1,000 base currency units. 
  • Orders: Instructions given to your broker to execute trades for you. 
  • Calls: Contracts providing their holders with the right, but not the obligation, to buy an asset at a given price (known as the strike price) when or before a certain time frame concludes. Currency options are calls and puts since their underlying asset is an exchange of 2 currencies. 

Is Trading Forex from Sudan Right for You? 

You need to be careful when trading forex from Sudan, but that is actually true everywhere since most retail forex traders lose money. Success as a forex trader generally requires that you perform your due diligence in selecting a reputable and well-regulated online broker with the appropriate rigor.

Most traders also need to keep a close eye on relevant fundamental or technical information as it becomes available to the forex market. Small changes in economic indicators or exchange rate charts can mean a big market opportunity has risen in the forex market for those savvy enough to realize it.

Neteller Launches Cryptocurrency Exchange Service

Neteller Launches Cryptocurrency Exchange Service

Neteller  one of the most known Digital fiat currency wallet provider , has started allowing its users to buy, sell, and hold cryptocurrencies including BTC, BCH, ETH, ETC, and LTC.

They do this on the large scale with a pilot in 10 countries and soon another 50 countries to join . They understand that if you do this effort it will only succeed if you can do this on a global scale.

Neteller and Cryptocurrencies

Neteller is a service which is operated by Paysafe Financial Services Ltd.,

paysafe

paysafe

founded in 1999, Paysafe Financial Services entered the market with the mission to provide an online alternative to the known traditional payment methods.

Most of the traders aiming us now neteller as one of the companies through which we made our deposits and if we had any profits also our withdrawals. A couple of years ago they left the Forex and Binary industry behind since the charge-back issue became just too expensive.

But as any companies knows, if you do not adept you die. The binary option market is all but dead and the Forex industry has moved also into the directions of the cryptocurrencies. thus, neteller understands that this is where the future is.

So Lasts week they announced that they are now offering a wallet with buy and sell cryptocurrency options.

As of today, Neteller users can buy, hold and sell cryptocurrencies via a recognized cryptocurrency exchange including bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum, ethereum classic and litecoin, purchased using any one of 28 fiat currencies available in the Neteller wallet.

It may not seem so exciting but for many users that love this service it actually is. More and more currencies will be added making them an true exchange in the near future.

Now one is able to fund their neteller account through many different means (Mobile, Epay, Paysafecard, local bank deposits, and bitcoin)

We think that will make the threshold for many people, who would want to buy or sell cryptocurrencies, lower. This in return is a good thing for the overall acceptance of the cryptocurrencies in the mainstream of every day life.

Conditions for buying and selling cryptocurrencies through Neteller

The rates offered are somewhat in the lower middle of the current market making them go for the save route. The average market rates on the major cryptocurrency exchanges differ all in all not that much anyways, as this is not the main reason to choose to buy Bitcoin through Neteller

The minimum cryptocurrency purchase or sale amount is “approximately equal to 10 EUR,” the firm clarified, adding that the maximum amount depends on the transaction limits associated with each account.

When You open an account with Neteller you have to choose your default currency. This is of course for most people in accordance on their geographical locations, people in Britain will go for the pound most Europeans go for the euro and pretty much the rest of the work goes for the US Dollar, thou other currencies are available

The fee is 1.5 percent for purchasing and selling cryptocurrencies from wallets with EUR or USD as the default currency.

The fee rises to 3 percent for wallets with other default currencies.

Neteller  | Why is this a good move for neteller and one that we should expect from other online Payment providers as well ?

At this moment till last week Neteller users can pay, get paid on thousands of sites, and send money around the world through their system.

The company claims to have “millions of point-of-sale, ATM and online locations” for users to withdraw or spend their cash.

Last July 25, Paysafe ( which as you remember is the company that owns Neteller and Skrill)  announced that another digital wallet provider in its group, Skrill ( formerly known as moneybookers), started allowing customers to “instantly buy and sell cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ether and litecoin, using any one of the 40+ fiat currencies available in the Skrill wallet.”

We could now see that this was like their test run on this concept.

We do not know the numbers that Skrill produced since they offered this service but it must have been encouraging enough for Paysafe to include their flagship brand in this endevour.

We will see where this leads but we are hopeful that this is the next step in global acceptance to the cryptocurrency revolution. Let me know what you think

The basics of trading that one should know

The basics of trading that one should know

Things you should be aware of before you start

The currency trading industry and now also the cryptocurrency trading industry have gone through enormous volatile times the last couple of years. Now with trump and its trade wars. The fast rise and somewhat recline of the cryptocurrencies and the fast pace of international politics and economies that create high rises and steep fall of the currencies.

So what does it all mean and what can you do before start to trade on these news headlines.

Good brokers like LegacyFX and UBCFX provide the traders with the latest market news and updates on a continuous basis but if you are new to trading you still have no idea what to do with this.

You start by understanding that the involves a high degree of risk, including the risk of losing you hard earned money. Besides the ones that were lucky enough to have bought Bitcoin a couple of years back and cashed in in the end of 2017, most people don’t get rich overnight.

You have to understand that you only trade with money that you are able to lose, going hungry because you want to open a trade is not the right wy to go about it.

So, What is Forex?

You should by now understand that the value of currencies goes up and down every day.

This in general becomes apparent the moment you go on vacation and what you bought last year with your money now is not the same amount you get today at the exchange.

This is on a large scale, what a lot of people do not know is that there is a foreign exchange market – or ‘Forex’ for short – or “FX” for even shorter, where you can potentially make a profit from the movement of these currencies.

The most known Trader is George Soros who made a billion dollars in a day by trading currencies. This is of course on a scale that we are not able to reach and you need a huge amount of money to begin with. Still he made a billion in one day!!

The internet has played a huge part in making trading in currencies accessible for the masses. You also do not need huge amounts of money to actually do this. Now keep in mind that if you make 10% profit on your investment but the investment was just $50 you basically just end up with $55. still no bank will give you 10% interest on your money.

Many people and I am talking millions are now trading every day, most do this on the side and don’t do this as a full-time job, but there are today enough people that are full time traders and making enough money to live comfortably.

Retail forex market needed Brokers

The Forex market for the retail market was born, it started around 15 years ago to become more serious as technologies advanced and the stream of information became almost instant, this is important for trading as one second can make the difference between profit or loss.

So, the moment the technology was there the people that wanted to trade were there all that was needed were the Forex brokers that offered the platform for trading.

There are latterly hundreds of companies of not thousands that offer this service and there are good ones like LegacyFX and there are scams (these tend to not last long)

Forex explained in short

The Forex market is the largest financial market on the planet and has been for many years now.

Its average daily trading volume is more than $4 trillion. (just let that number sink in for a second). Of this total amount around 5% is the retail market meaning traders like you and me. Still 5% of 4 Trillion is still a number with a lot of zeros behind it.

If you compare that with the New York Stock Exchange, which only has an average daily trading volume of $55 billion. You truly see the size.

To give you another example:

if you were to put ALL of the world’s equity and futures markets together, their combined trading volume would still only equal a 25% of the daily Forex market. Insane right?

Why does this even matter?

It matters because there are so many buyers and sellers that transaction prices are kept low. To explain how trading the Forex market is different than trading stocks, here are a few major benefits.

  1. Most Brokers don’t charge commissions – you pay only the bid/ask spreads.
  2. There’s 24hour trading – you decide when to trade and how to trade.
  3. You can focus on your currencies and become experts in only those pairs that you follow instead of following and selecting out of 5000 stocks
  4. You can trade on leverage, (something to be very aware of as it can magnify potential gains but also your losses).
  5. Forex is accessible for almost everyone– you don’t need a lot of money to get started
  6. In the Forex market you can trade on Demo accounts to learn before you commit your money

How is Forex traded?

The mechanics of a trade are virtually identical to those in other markets. The only difference is that you’re buying one currency and selling another at the same time.

This is also the reason as to why the currencies are quoted in pairs, like EUR/USD or USD/GBP.

The exchange rate represents the purchase price between the two currencies.

Example:

The EUR/GBP rate represents the number of GBP one EUR can buy (relevant now with all the Brexit issues going on) . If you think the Euro will increase in value against the British Pound, you buy Euros with British Pounds. If the exchange rate rises, you sell the Euros back, and you cash in your profit.

Now the same works for strading Bitcoin, ethereum, Litecoin or other cryptocurrencies. this has become an entire new market and has introduced many people to Forex . you should here be also aware that trading cryptocurrencies is like regular trading so you will be able to lose great sums of money.

the Best thing i found about trading cryptocurrencies is that the Leverage by default tends to be very low which makes the risk of losing it all much smaller.

Sounds simply enough?

Why does not everyone Trade.

The same could be asked as to why not everyone plays poker, you can make money. The comparison between the 2 is actually closer than you might think.

All traders that are successful will tell you that 80% of successful trading is psychology and the other 20% is research. It takes time to get the research down, but it can take a lifetime to master the psychology.

People tend to do things differently when real money is on the line and are accepting losses in the hope that the trend will reverse or taking out profit too early because they don’t want to lose what they just have gained. In short, the psychology is the hard part.

One should be aware that you can loose real money and a lot of it very fast if you don’t know what you are doing.

Now most Good Forex brokers offer some educational tools, some more than others that will teach you how to trade. There is also something that is called social trading that will allow you to follow other traders and see what they are doing in order for you to learn and make money at the same time.

So here are some ground rules for those that look to start trading

  1. Get involved in the market, watch read and listen to the news to understand what is happening
  2. Go through a trading course ( a good one is here)
  3. Open a demo account and trade at least a month (my advice to do this even longer)only on this before you even think about trading with real money.
  4. Check out social trading, there are some options for this, this broker offers this also.
  5. Try with an amount that you are able to afford losing. See this as your tuition money.
  6. Take it slow, don’t become greedy and follow the basic rules

Basic Rules (there are many more but start with these)

  1. The trend is your friend
  2. Don’t add money to a losing position
  3. Don’t trade on too many different currency pairs
  4. Trade only with a good broker
  5. Don’t open to many positions (no one needs 100 positions a day)
  6. Develop your strategy and stick to it.
  7. Know that NO ONE is 100% of the times right, everyone loses some.
  8. Last but not least, don’t trade with money you cannot afford to lose.

Now all that I want to say is good luck.  😊

Wanted Cryptography Experts in China

 Wanted Cryptography Experts in China

The sooner we get to the official launch of China Digital Money. the more Cryptography Experts are needed.

it almost is surreal as they pushed against this from the beginning but now S China digital money may soon be a reality.

The Bank of China (PBOC) is hiring cryptography experts by the masses as reported by the South China Morning Post (SCMP)

this is the latest in the Chinese efforts to have a state controlled cryptocurrency for its own means.

The institution is one which worries a lot about the effect of investor activity in the cryptocurrency market. this in great contrasted to the directive issues in 2014 by the PBOC  that Bans any activity related to the cryptocurrency market.

Yet the Central bank of china started to build their own work force for building and developing their crypto in 2017.

something like if you can beat them , copy them.

in 2017 the Yicai Global reported that this targeted workforce would work from central Beijing as was to be names the  digital currency research institute

This research institute would primarily focus on the latest in digital currency technologies and all the different applications that would benefit from cryptocurrencies.

the former deputy director of the PBOC’s science department, Mr Yao Qiann would be in charge of the overall project

since then they are expending with opening a new research institute expanded in Nanjing . the idea for this center is to create more interest n the technologies and its possible applications.

the pilot programs are to be implemented by state controlled banks and academic institutions which should result in blockchain hubs that would attract new developing talent and additional capital to further develop the cryptocurrencies.

“Beijing’s ideal digital currency must ensure the smooth running of monetary and financial stability policies and at the same time protect consumers.”

Apparently, the ultimate goal for the Digital Currency Research Institute (DCRI) was to clear the path for a national cryptocurrency. Reports indicate that the fintech hubs will serve a purpose higher than initially believed. Reportedly, the hubs will serve as testing ground for China digital money. Here, the currency will undergo tests from prototype phase to future mass production.

and thus we get to the point that they are looking aggressively for new talent in the cryptographers and computer scientists sectors. now that more and more student have said good bey to the united states in the last couple of months after feeling they were less welcome this drive for finding new employment has only intensified and is answered by the large amount of brilliant young people coming back to live in chine after their education abroad.

The salaries are even higher then what they would have earned if they would stayed in the US and gone of to work in some of the companies in the Silicon Valley.

So we could expect that China is now also looking to become a world player in this industry as they have become the leaders in so many other fields.
