Unfortunately, the reality is not quite so easy.

A Currency Portfolio Built for the Next 2-3 Years!

By Sean Hyman

The best currency traders that I know don’t concentrate on what’s happening right now. They don’t get focus on the present, or get hung up on the daily price action.

Instead, they peer into the future and predict what will happen in the currencies markets months ahead of time. Then they build a portfolio that will benefit as that scenario starts to become a reality.

Three Major Currencies to Own

By Sean Hyman Oil is slowly inching back up. In fact, the world’s favorite commodity has almost doubled off of its US$33 lows when it hit US$60 a barrel recently.

Of course, as a currency trader, I want to know, “Which currencies should prosper the most if oil holds above US$60?”

12:00 Noon Friday

A Deadline for All Forex Traders

By Sean Hyman

Fridays are a bit odd for every market.

For stocks and commodities, the big-name traders are gearing up for the weekend. They’re buckling down and deciding whether to hold positions when the markets are closed on Saturday and Sunday, or close out everything to avoid any large price jumps over the weekend.

It’s the same in Forex.
