Trading is sometimes thought to be simple process of buying and selling by a layman. Trading involves many technical aspects that have to be taken into account lest one will end up loosing money and in the end cursing trading.

Training and attention are the key to a successful forex trade. One needs to be very specific about the strategy that has to be implemented while trading forex.

The first and foremost is the Market Trend which has to be observed very keenly. One needs to know the nuances and keep a tab on the trends and the upheavals that the currencies will be experiencing in the near future. Market trends can go up or down or may go sideways. In 90% situations the trends in the forex market go sideways thus a forex trader should always be ready for it and a range bound strategy would be the most ideal to apply in a currency pair. Range bound strategies work both in sideways and trending markets.

An entry strategy has to be in place at all costs and should be clearly defined and followed by the forex trader. This ensures the entry of the forex trader in the market is based on a set of fixed rules which will surely go along way in the profit making endeavor.

Types Of Vehicle Insurance In India

images10

Today, anybody and everybody, has insurance of some sort. Either they believe in insuring themselves and their loved ones, or in insuring their vehicles! In India and in most other places, vehicle insurance is mandatory. The amount your vehicle can be insured for varies depending on the insurance companies and the insurance brokers.
In India, there are several types of vehicle insurances. Companies in India offer insurance at four levels.

1.Fully comprehensive vehicle insurance- This is by far the most expensive insurance, yet the most common type, as it covers all the possible damages and costs that your vehicle may incur. This type of vehicle insurance proves to be advantageous as there is no need to produce proof of the damage to claim the insurance amount. Thus, if your vehicle is damaged or stolen in your absence, then you can still approach the insurance company.

2.Third Party insurance- This type of insurance carries a comparatively cheaper premium and insures against damages and legal claims when you are at fault and have hit a third party. The insurance company is not responsible for any other scratches or occurring that takes place with your car.

3.Specialized car insurance- This type of insurance refers to any car that is over 25 years old, as vintage cars have different needs and requirements. Similar to a comprehensive auto insurance policy, the only difference between the two is that you are limited to an x amount of miles in a given year.

4.Third Party Fire and Theft insurance- Befitting to its name, this insurance covers the costs of your vehicle in case of fire, theft, accident, etc. However, in case of an accident, the insurance company will only pay up if you are at fault and have hit another car and not vice-versa.

In order to go forward with insuring your car, you need to carefully go through the various schemes offered by different insurance brokers. Each insurance broker has a scheme that offers one policy better than the other. A way of going about the entire process would be to patiently go through all the possible offers, look out for the best premium offered and then insure your vehicle. Today, online access to insurance schemes makes the process a whole lot easier.

Learning To Trade Overnight Trading Range Breakouts

images11

Trading breakouts is one of the most tried and tested methods of trading the forex markets because when the price breaks out of an established trading range, it often continues to move strongly in that direction. Therefore there are some excellent profits to be made.

There are lots of different ways you can trade breakouts. You can wait for a quiet period of the day for instance when the price is barely moving and is confined to a very narrow range, and wait for a breakout to take place, or you can use bollinger bands and wait for them to narrow because this often precedes a strong breakout. However in this article I want to talk about a particular strategy that involves opening ranges.

I’ve been experimenting with this strategy on the GBP/USD and EUR/USD pairs recently and it seems to work very well. What you basically do is to look at the opening hours between 00.00 and 06.00 GMT (or 08.00 if the price is still within this range up until this time) and draw two horizontal lines marking the high and low points for this period.

Then you simply wait for the price to break out and close above (or below) one of these lines and take a corresponding long or short position. This method works well when there is a narrow opening range and the reason it works is simple. Every pair has an average daily range (the GBP/USD is roughly 220 points and the EUR/USD is roughly 180 points according to 2008 figures) so if the opening range is a small fraction of this number, then you know that there are a lot of points to be made either above or below the current opening range.

It’s not a method that can be used every day on a certain currency pair because sometimes the price will move quite substantially in the opening few hours, but it’s well worth putting into practice when the opening range is very narrow.

There are various ways you can actually trade this system. You can either jump in as soon as the breakout bar or candle closes, or if you want to place the odds substantially in your favour, you can wait for an initial breakout followed by a pull-back into this trading range, then trade the subsequent breakout (if there is one) because this continuation pattern is a very profitable signal.

Either way you should find that these strategies (or variants of these strategies) are generally very effective because the price will very often move strongly out of this opening range at some point during the day.

How To Gauge The Volatility Of A Stock Market Investment

images17

Do Your Research
You can find a great deal of information in the stock tables of your local newspaper, or your favorite financial industry publication. Those stock tables contain a wealth of information you can use to gauge the volatility of a stock market investment. Turn to the stock table in your favorite financial publication. Locate the 52-week high and low for each stock you plan to invest in.

Compare the 52-week high for the stock to the 52-week low. The difference between the 52-week high and the low is a good indicator of how volatile the stock has been over the last year, and how volatile it is likely to be in the future.

Contact the Company
Contact the investor relations department at each company and request a copy of the annual report. Some companies publish these reports online, so you might be able to find past annual reports on the company’s website. If not, check the website and find the contact information for the investor relations department.

Review the price history of the stock as shown in the annual report. A wide spread between the annual highs and lows for the stock is an indication of a highly volatile stock. A company whose share price has been more consistent has shown far less volatility.

Practice on Paper
Create a paper portfolio and track your stocks over a period of several months. List each stock on a separate line and list the daily or weekly price in each column. Tracking the stock price over time will give you a good indication of how volatile the stock is.

While nothing can totally eliminate the inherent volatility of investing in the stock market, there are a number of strategies you can use to reduce the risks of the stock market and increase your odds of finding a winning investment.

Steps to Owning Bank Foreclosure Properties

images8

Owning bank foreclosure properties is a simple process which anyone can undertake without the help of agents or brokers. There are real deals to be made in buying one of these distressed properties as long as the buyer approaches the entire affair with diligence and caution.

The process for buying bank foreclosure properties begins with research. The best place to start is the Internet where there are multitudes of web sites providing listings and information on foreclosures. There are free sites that offer country-wide listings but they are highly susceptible to inaccuracies. Your best bet would be the web sites that charge for subscription. For a small investment you get access to all types of foreclosures all across the country as well as news and studies on the market. You can customize your search in these sites to yield only the properties that suit your needs and buying capability.

Once you have subscribed to a web service offering foreclosure listings and before selecting your main prospects, you need to prequalify for home financing first if you do plan to pay for your purchase in cash. You can go to your bank and submit for a financial assessment to know the kind of loan and the amount you qualify for. You need this pre-approval certificate when you make your offer.

The Value Appraisal

If you have selected the home you would like to purchase you need to get an appraisal of the value of the property or at least the most likely price of the home compared to others like it in the market and the neighborhood. Bank foreclosure properties are typically sold at around 20 to 30 percent less than their market value.

The Offer

A typical offer for a bank owned home comes with good-faith money given upfront which can be around three percent of the purchase price. Your loan pre-qualification document should also be included in your offer. After your offer is accepted the deed of sale is drawn up. Some important matters to take care of at this point are the inspection period and the closing date as this could impact the overall cost of your purchase. The bank will allow an inspection contingency phase where buyers can cancel their purchase based on the inspection results.

Voip Total Phone Solutions For Small Business

images12

If you are like most businesses, the answer lies somewhere between ambivalence and total disdain.

All small business owners know the importance of low cost overhead. Working smart with your money has never been more important than it is in today’s economy. A very efficient way for small businesses to save huge dollars is by subscribing to a small voip phone system, also referred to as voice over internet protocol services. It is a method for making telephone calls by using the Internet. The technology became available around 1990 but with the recent advancements it has become a strong replacement for the traditional land line service.

One of the reasons that Internet VoIP is so popular is because it is very inexpensive as well as dependable. All of the equipment such as bluetooth voip headset, voip phone adapter, and headaches are hosted by the provider so all the business needs to worry about is the Internet connection and a telephone. In some cases you’ll be able to use the same telephones that you used for your land-line while others a special Voip broadband phone will be the best solution. The call quality is so good that rarely would anyone know that you were not using a land line. The provider keeps all the updates and relative maintenance up to date so having equipment or a service that becomes obsolete is not a concern.

The cost of Internet VoIP is so inexpensive because the calls are able to transmit over the Internet in place of a local telephone company’s system. By bypassing the local telephone company there is no fees that have to be paid to them. The process of dialing out and receiving calls is the same. You will need a high speed Internet connection and small voip phone system that is on at all times with a bandwidth large enough for the transmissions to always be clear.

To get started with Internet VoIP you’ll need to choose a voice over internet protocol providers and subscribe to the voip phone plans that best fits your business needs. With all the Internet VoIP options and providers now in the market place, it can be confusing for businesses to know what they need and the best provider for them.

Atlanta Ga Business Franchise Consultant Knows Comfort Keepers Franchise

images14

Senior care franchise associates Biz Advisors Inc, as an Atlanta GA franchise consultant suggest the Comfort Keepers franchise.

Exploring the Range of Home Care Services

Senior citizens today have more home care services to choose from than ever before. And more than ever, seniors are opting to continue living at home for as long as possible, even when they need medical assistance.

Home care services have increased in popularity as a senior care option to assisted living facilities and nursing homes, even as quality of facility-provided care continues to improve.

The reasons for home care services growth include:

* Americas 65+ population is growing faster than ever (expected to double to more than 70 million by 2030, accounting for one of every five Americans)

* Much of the senior population growth is being fueled by the baby boom generation, which is entering retirement. Todays seniors, who are more active and living longer than previous generations, prefer to continue living independently at home for as long as possible

* Medical advancements make it possible for in-home care of chronic health conditions, which have become more prevalent due to the aging population

* Home care has become more accepted by physicians

* There is a movement toward more cost-effective health care options, such as in-home care

Studies show that even after they begin needing assistance with the activities of daily living or ongoing health care, seniors prefer to age in the comfort of their own home. In fact, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that more than two-thirds of older Americans who already need daily assistance are now living at home. This includes more than 70 percent of persons with Alzheimers disease.

In-home senior care agencies offer a wide variety of services that clients can select as needed. The services can be tailored to provide whatever amount of help a senior need to perform the activities of daily living. Services include:

*Companionship and care services, such as meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, conversation and companionship, medication reminders, transportation, grocery shopping, laundry, and recreational activities

*Personal care services, such as bathing, help with mobility, incontinence care, toileting, feeding, and special diet preparation

*Technology services, such as monitoring, emergency response and medication management systems to provide security and care for seniors when professional or family caregivers are not present

Many seniors needing in-home care have chronic medical conditions that require regular management, so medical home care agencies can work in conjunction with non-medical in-home senior care providers to meet a seniors complete needs.

In-home elder care providers, such as Comfort Keepers, also serve todays more active seniors, helping them maintain connections with friends, as well as community organizations and hobbies that continue to give them satisfaction.
