Starting working on Forex every experienced trader came across the concept of multiple time frame analysis. One might look for the answer for such questions as “Which time frame is the best?”, “Which one is the most profitable?”, etc. In order to answer it, we should examine each of them.

Every time frame is designed to show the same information. The only distinguishing feature is the data provided in terms of different periods of time. In order to help you to choose the most appropriate, let us look at the most popular:

1 day;

1 hour;

5 minutes.

On the daily chart every bar represents one day; thus, changes on the chart will be observed once a day. On the 1-hour chart new bars appear every hour, providing trader with information. Bars on the 5-minute chart appear every five minutes, showing dynamically the current situation on the market.

In order to choose the most appropriate time frame, you should take into account several criteria: the period you will be working with the charts, profit, the amount of your deposit, and account management.

If you prefer a more moderate pace of work and you like to follow the changes of the chart every hour; if you consider that 1-hour chart is more reliable and it reflects precisely the price fluctuations as it does not show a great deal of that fuss about nothing that 5-minute chart contains, then 1-hour chart is ideally suited for you.

We may think over the other alternative. In case you have regular job and you do not have enough time to observe the situation or you think that changes which occur during the day do not influence the market on the whole, and it is better to analyze the final result in the evening; probably you want to participate in the trade at night making money work for you even when you sleep, consequently, it is better to use daily charts.

You have to choose the way you make money on Forex either participating in trading, using every chance, sitting in front of the monitor the whole day or making money relaxed observing price fluctuations from time to time and not breaking your daily routine.

Fundamental and Technical analyst alike are employing news to guide their trading decisions. Though their degree of usage may vary, it’s better for beginner traders to familiarize themselves with terms that are usually found within the news. Quantitative Easing for one.

Quantitative Easing is an unconventional monetary policy used by central banks to induce support on an economy. It is a stimulant aimed to assist an economy if in case it is in an unfavorable state. The concept behind it is that additional money will flood the market which will give the economy a push by by promoting an increase in lending and liquidity.

It is often carried out by buying financial assets from commercial banks and other private institutions with the newly created money to induce a specific amount of money in the economy.

At present, the world has already witnessed the said boost for three times already. First was during the time of George Bush back in 2008 wherein $500 billion was initially spent on mortgage backed securities. An additional $750 billion was made during the time of Barack Obama’s first term. By June of 2010, $2.1 trillion worth of assets was already bought by the bank.

The second round was demonstrated in 2010 when Federal Reserve provided $600 billion for long-term government bonds. Some claim that this effort was put in vain because the money just ended up in EU’s foreign reserves.

The third was the most recent. The buzz started when Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve in America, had announced last September 14,2012 that the third round of the quantitative easing will be given for the $40 billion a month bond purchasing program and also to continue the very low rates policy.

Though the unconventional way boosted the economy at first, its effect is dwindling as years passes by. Doubts and debates regarding its effectiveness arose from every corner and some became pessimistic about it. The previous rounds taught traders that they should perceive the possible chain reactions that the third easing will produce rather than just the short term effect.

The 2008 financial crisis really shook the world, most especially the wealthy. Economic debris is still on the mending process and some countries had just started to pick themselves up and their neighbors too. The U.S. economy has just stirred to stand back up from its huge fall since the Great Depression. Moreover, Greece had just received its rescue from its euro brothers while others’ turn is still yet to come.

But there are those who wasn’t standing on the epicenter, although shaken a bit, but utterly stable compared to others. Standing intact and able to withstood its impact, one of those who were able to maintain the capriccio of its citizen while others loom to survive was Australia.

Australia’s known for its abundant natural resources – more specifically it’s metal resources. Mining had started to boom around the early 19th century and since then fulfilled the financial needs of the barren centered country. Gold, iron ore, nickel, bauxite or aluminum, copper, and silver are just some of the widely mined resources that pumps money into economic veins of Australia.

It was the reason why Aussie is one of the commodity currencies. Its exports, most especially metals, greatly affects how its economy would perform. China’s been one of its major trading partner and the Sino – Australian relations is still growing stronger over the years. The aggregating demand of China to iron ores makes its pact with the currency commodity sturdier than ever.

However, many are speculating about its imminent halt in the near future. Everything is bound to end as the old always says, and sooner or later those fields will be exhausted. What would happen if it does?

Some are claiming that it was already over but experts says that the time has yet to come. If In case their resources were indeed exhausted, how do you think that their economy would fare?

Australia, although highly dependent on their exports, have other things to offer other than metals. Agricultural products, like wheat and wool, are also being exported. Not only that, energy sources such as liquified natural gas and coal are also being sold to other countries worldwide. Eco tourism would also be possible due to their vast land and sea mass. Although dessert terrains is abundant near the center, its outskirt really has something to offer.
