USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar was little changed versus the majors on lack of major news in the Forex trading world.

NASDAQ and Dow Jones fell by -2.04% and -1.16% respectively, reaching their lowest level in 7 months. Crude Oil declined by -0.66% closing at 71.04$ a barrel. Gold (XAU) gained by 1.90% closing at 1,239$ an ounce. Today, FOMC Member Hoenig will speak in Kansas City. 



EURO (EUR) - The Euro finished almost unchanged versus the Dollar after rising from its 4 year lows.  German Factory Orders came out better than expected causing stocks to fluctuate between gains and losses. Overall, EUR/USD traded with a low of 1.1876 and a high of 1.1991. EUR/USD continues moving downwards along with its main trend. Daily RSI is slightly oversold. Today, German Industrial Production is expected with 0.7% versus 4% prior.

Overall, GBP/USD traded with a low of 1.4388 and a high of 1.4563. GBP/USD fell back downwards after reaching the first Fibonacci retracement of 38.2% of the downtrend which started in April.

USD/JPY is moving downwards after it wasn't able to move above the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the downward movement which started in early May.

USD/CAD declined yesterday but was still unable to remain at its lows showing buyers are still in control. Today, Housing Starts are expected slightly higher with 203K versus 201K prior.

In the last 6 years I had filled several positions in financial institutions such as a stock broker, a foreign exchange desk manager, a financial consultant and in my recent role I serve as a senior Forex advisor for XForex which is an online forex company.

3. What type of clients you deal with?
We deal with clients on all levels from the beginning stages to the more advanced trading levels.

Aside from all the benefits that XForex offer like commission-free trading, 24/7 online support, high leverage (200:1), XForex offers educational and learning trading experience that you won’t find anywhere else..
Our team of experts and financial trainers provide personal assistance and guide clients to financial success. We provide daily analysis and market reviews to our clients giving them a better understanding of the market and helping them trade profitably.

6. From your experience, what advice would you give a person who wants to enter the forex world?
My advice to the beginning trader entering the Forex world is as follows:
• Learn the market and understand what you’re getting into.
• Research and find the broker that suits your needs and wants. Look for a good offering but more importantly customer service, don’t go for the low rates offer without being certain they have a good customer service department. From my extensive experience in the Forex world your key to success will be your client-broker relationship. I can honestly say that at XForex they put an emphasis on servicing clients, which is so important.
• Invest smartly and calculate your risks
