Swap-free accounts and carry trade strategy

Swap-free accounts and carry trade strategy
The currency market gives a fair shot to earn as every trader is free to choose his niche and specialization. However, by mixing completely different strategies, it is possible to get an equally stable income. For instance, while some opt for medium- or long-term trading on swap-free accounts, others prefer a carry trade strategy.
Swap-free accounts ensure working on Forex without swaps (or commissions, in other words) which are either charged or credited by a broker for holding overnight positions. InstaForex, for example, renders this service for free. Swap-free accounts will perfectly suit the needs of long-term traders who choose the most volatile currency pairs with a negative swap.
Consequently, the traders can have their positions open for a long time, and they do not pay for it. But swap-free accounts are not credited with the annual interest on free margin (InstaForex guarantees 13% annual interest to active accounts).
The carry trade strategy implies making profit on the positive carry between the interest rates of the countries whose currencies you trade. The bigger the difference between the rates is, the bigger swap you will get for the position’s prolongation. AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY, and GBP/CHF are the most popular carry trade pairs. Besides, such exotic pairs as AUD/DKK and USD/MXN are also used in carry trading. A trader can calculate the returns of the carry trade pairs individually comparing the interest rates that are publicly available.
Substantial profit can be derived from the position’s prolongation for a week or more. Thus, the carry trade strategy is frequently employed by long-term traders. Commonly, positions are opened on Wednesday and carried over to Thursday – the swap is trebled for such an operation. Higher volatility and interest rate fluctuations are the main risks that can trigger a trend change and have a profound impact on the swap amount.
Therefore, it is up to you whether to enjoy swap-free trading or benefit from carry trade operations. By the way, it is possible to combine both strategies using different instruments.

Do you need a trading plan?

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

If you are serious about trading successfully on the international currency market, then you should work out a trading plan. Pay particular attention to it, as it is not just another chapter in a Forex trading guide book; on the contrary, it is a major trading tool.
If it seems the trading plan is useless and takes precious time, try not just to draw it up, but make corrections occasionally.
Statistics and statistical analysis are of great importance when trading on the Forex market.
Trading plan is a kind of statistics which reflects your actions in different circumstances. It is an algorithm of your work, which should be corrected due to market changes.
It is a trading plan that will help you to analyze situation promptly and take right decisions.

1. Observe the economic news and collect relevant information.
2. Make a plan.
3. Keep to the trading plan.
4. Analyze you work according to the plan.
5. Correct the plan.

Trading is a job, a sort of business, and business without a plan will not bring fruitful results.
