Currency Conversions

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

So has foreign currency been surpassed in favour of cards? The answer is generally, yes. If you have the right card you will almost certainly save money when compared to exchanging your Sterling for foreign currency.

However, for some, any forms of cards, whether it is a credit card with charges or the new breed of prepaid cards, are off-putting and of course the wrong card can carry risks. Cash is also the easiest to use but, at the same time, is the easiest to lose or have stolen so don't take more than your travel insurance covers. In those cases, exchanging money is probably right for you – but still make sure you're getting the best deal.

Don't assume that a sign saying 'commission free' automatically means you're going to get a great rate. In actual fact you should be very wary of 'commission free' offers because the chances are that you will be offered a worse exchange rate than the bureau itself receives, allowing them to make profit that way. The only way to tell is to ask how many euros/dollars, etc, you will get in exchange for your pounds. Simple as that!

Some companies don't have commission charges – so if their exchange rate is competitive they are worth a look. However, don't rule out those that do charge commission, as their rates can still be more competitive.

Be wary however, of flat fees and minimum charges. Minimum charges make it difficult to change small amounts of money but flat fees can offer good value if you are changing larger sums of money. Watch out for handling fees too, which are normally about £3 but can be higher. Also consider your own bank or building society as they might have preferential rates for their account holders.

Online Trading Services

We offer online trading services with FXcast since over 2 years now. FXcast has worked as broker in a protected private environment. The website has gone public on the 1st of May 2007 after huge investments for automation and effectiveness of our website information and the procedures behind it. The goal is nearly 100% automated processes from account opening to withdrawals from trading accounts.

The founders of FXcast have each more than 15 years experience in brokerage, system development, customer relationship management, risk management, execution and whatever is important for our core business.

Why ‘FXcast’? Any particular reason for this name?
The name is a synonym for Forex Forecast – the only method in our opinion to trade successfully in the market. If it is a technical analysis based forecast or an economic based or a mixture of both – without a fundamental analysis and resulting forecast trading is only gambling. If a trader wants gambling – fine. If he wants profit he must stop gambling and start serious trading.

Forex market

Forex market is an international exchange market where some currencies are bought and the others are sold accordingly. Trading in Forex market goes in currency pairs like EUR/USD for Euro/US Dollar of USD/JPY for US Dollar/Japanese Yen and it is unlikely to have any external controls.

The transactions between the counterparts of Forex market are carried out via electronic network or over the phone. That's why Forex market is known as an "interbank" market. There is not any trading center for FX market unlike futures and stock markets.

The borrowed capital is often used for trading in Forex. In this case currency speculations are carried out through getting a credit line and called marginal trading. This fact confirms that you can trade in Forex without being supplied by any real money. So, the trader may deal with large transactions at a high speed and low fee without having a considerable initial capital.

Forex has two fundamental trading strategies: Fundamental and Technical Analysis. The sense of technical analysis is to invest money after studying past data with hope that the history would behave cyclically. Fundamental analysis deals with analyzing various different fundamental factors within the country, like economical and political situation hoping that they will affect exchange rates.
