China Blocks Forex Brokers WebsitesChinese government blocks many major retail Forex Brokers websites

A big slap in the face comes from Chinese government today, as it blocks many FX sites for good. China has always been a big fan of censorship and internet control and Forex trading didn’t skip its watchful eye of regulations.

In order to be visible to Chinese public, a commercial website must have special government license called “Beian”, which covers domains with .cn at the end. The owner of the website must be Chinese citizen and the hosting of the site must be also inside the country. This way the government has full control of the online data presented to its public.

While some of not-Chinese-based Forex Brokers had privilege to be available to Chinese traders, today everything changed when China decided to block all of those brokers and make them completely unreachable within China territory.

 Which Forex Brokers are no longer available to Chinese clients?

Among permanently blocked brokers you can see the big trading giants FXCM, XM, FxPro, Gain Capital and Aetos. To be available to Chinese public, forex brokers must be hosted and licensed inside the country itself.

Bad news aside, the above-mentioned brokers are of course accessible from any other country, which doesn’t believe in total internet dictatorship and monitoring of interests and freedom of choice of each citizen.

Website block and censorship of every file transfer has been going on for a while now. China government is working hard to keep the western world out of its boundaries and maintain the so-called stable society with ease. That might be excitingly thrilling for the government itself. A bit less so for the common people and, of course, many companies that unwillingly don’t have any exposure for Chinese audience.

This means that there will be a greater dependence on introducing brokers (IBs), which are commonly accepted as the only means by which western firms interact with a Chinese audience, because very few Chinese investors even trade their own accounts, let alone go directly to the Chinese language site of a foreign broker and invest directly.

The possible future for Chinese-oriented forex brokers would be joint venture with local companies with physical address, payment options and hosting inside the mainland. The only way to be shown to Chinese public would be to work the campaigns from the inside the country, hosting websites in China and allow Chinese local partners to partially own the subsidiaries of the off-shore brokers.

China is still one of the enchanted and unreachable land filled with so many opportunities for both outside world and the locals. We will look closely in the further development in the area. Stay tuned.

Plus500 broker continues to multiply its numbers and reports impressive financial steps in the latest revenues by quarter.

We have already seen Plus500 Forex Broker overturn $100 million mark in the previous Q2 report and now another 5% has been added on top of it in Q3, totaling to $116.5 million.

plus500 Q3 report growth review

Plus500 has brought over 42,000 new traders, which is up by 35% compared to third quarter in 2016. Indeed, the broker shows significant and effective growth lately.

What is next for Plus500? Seems like the broker is ready for more positive opportunities such as licenses and trading features, while maintaining clean reputation and technological innovations. According to the management team, the broker is on track and expects to rise high even further.

Asaf Elimelech, Chief Executive Officer of Plus500, commented:

Our results for the third quarter continued the strong progress of the first half, with record revenue and a record number of new and active customers. With this positive momentum, we are on track to achieve results which are ahead of our expectations for the year as a whole.

Interesting development has been a center of attention this week when FCA regulated broker Tickmill enquired CySEC licensed Vipro Markets. A large sum of $2.2 million has been purred into struggling Cyprus-based broker Vipro Markets in return for a majority ownership of the company.

Avatrade, the leading forex and CFD broker, has added to its already rich portfolio the newest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin Cash. This brings the number of cryptocurrencies AvaTrade offers to 7, adding it to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum classic, Dash, Ripple and Litecoin. The new trading instrument, Bitcoin Cash, will be traded under the symbol BCHUSD.

Shortly after having held two forex trading seminars in July, XM continued its seminar series in Thailand by visiting the cities of Chonburi on 5th August and Ubon Ratchathani on 19th August.

Seminar presenter Zulle Razak, together with the XM team members present on the premises, look very much forward to meeting our existing and new clients in any of the seminar locations with a topic that has much to offer for improved trading practices.

The latest year was rich for InstaForex in international awards as the company notched up five trophies from well-known business periodicals. One of the recent achievements is winning the nomination as The Best Social Trading Broker according to UK Forex Awards.

UK Forex Awards is one of the most prestigious ceremonies of awarding brokerage companies engaged in the forex industry. The latest grand event took place in Holborn in the West End of London. Among nominees were the best brokers, which give priority to advanced technologies, carry out comprehensive research of financial markets and trading instruments, and provide educational programs for forex trading.

InstaForex found itself on the winners list by UK Forex Awards for the fourth time and was acknowledged to be the best broker in terms of social trading. InstaForex is deeply honored for the recognition by the UK community of investors and traders. This achievement proves that InstaForex is following the right track.

 

Analysts believe that in times when the markets keep breaking historical records, an investor must diversify and hedge their portfolio with some commodities in case the markets will turn on them. And in April 2017, rumours of a downfall are being heard more and more often.

So if you’re searching for a way to diversified your portfolio on eToro, have a look at this Rising Star Popular Investor Grigori Klassen, AKA woron2008. He is a veteran trader, with his first trade dating back to January 2009.

Have a look at his trades from last year

Almost 40% were in commodities. He currently holds 55% of his portfolio in commodities and another 30% in stocks.

Let’s have a look at his performance over the last 3 years:

This is how he describes himself:

“I’ve been working with the stock market for over 10 years. My goal is minimum 50% profit per year. I am completely unemotional with my trades, which ultimately leads to success! Everyone knows it, only the way there is individually long : Something important for all copiers: Profit does not come from one day to the next. Sometimes you have to wait a little longer until the charts reach their correct values. You can copy me with any sum, because I trade for myself with my own money and therefore very responsible!”

He’s also been keeping a medium risk score of 4-5 over the last 4 years.

If you share the belief that every balanced portfolio should have between 5%-10% commodities (especially these days) then this is a man you should consider to copy!

Companies from any country in the world operating in any sector can be honored by Global Business Outlook for outstanding performance both at a regional and international level.

A grand award ceremony is the cherry on the cake. In 2016, over 100 companies from around the world were nominated for awards in the banking sector, real estate sector as well as for regional and global awards.

InstaForex earned a regional award and was recognized as the best brokerage firm providing trading services in Eastern Europe.

This is the first trophy from Global Business Outlook in our vast collection. We greatly appreciate professional recognition of InstaForex in Eastern Europe as it means that InstaForex trading services are increasingly popular among Eastern European clients. We are proud of their trust.

We are glad to inform you that in March the prize money of Chancy Deposit is 10 times more! This is thanks to the Norwegian biathlete and InstaForex ambassador Ole Einar Bjørndalen who won a medal in the pursuit race at the World Championship in Hochfilzen 12 February. It is his first victory in this season and in honor of this event we have increased the Chancy Deposit prize by 10 times, from $1,000 to $10,000. The campaign will last until March 31, 2017.

This day became for the biathlete doubly significant as his wife, Darya Domracheva from Belarus, won the silver medal in the same discipline. Thus, since 2004 Bjørndalen and Domracheva became the first married couple to win medals at the World Championship at the same day. Ole Einar is 43 years old and he became the oldest medalist at the World Championship in the history of biathlon.

All those present at the seminar will also have the chance to combine the newly acquired information with the use of the Tradepedia automated tools, specifically developed for trend following and risk management.

We summed up the results of the recent series of the InstaForex contests and are ready to unveil the winners of the following contests: One Million Option, InstaForex Sniper, Lucky Trader, FX-1 Rally, Great Race, and Real Scalping. InstaForex congratulates the victors on excellent results and wishes other contestants to find their names in upcoming reports.

FX-1 Rally

Aleksey Seledtsov managed to show the best trading and racing skills in the recent step of the FX-1 Rally contest. We congratulate the winner on smooth performance and wish him luck in the next stages of the contest. If you want to feel the thrilling spirit of the race, welcome to the start of FX-1 Rally! You can register for the nearest rally that will start at 00:00 February 24, 2017 and run until 23:59 February 24, 2017.

One Million Option

One Million Option is one of the most popular InstaForex contests that gathers hundreds of participants who struggle for the best options trader title. The best result was shown by Aleksander Svyatoslavin. The next contest will be held from February 27, 2017 to March 3, 2017.

Lucky Trader

Confidence, cool head, and concentration on success are the key to winning the Lucky Trader marathon. If you trade perfectly for two weeks, you will be able to win the Lucky Trader contest, just like Vasiliy Sobolevskiy did it. The next stage of the Lucky Trader contest will start on March 6, 2017 and end on March 17, 2017.

InstaForex Sniper

The InstaForex Sniper contest gathers the most accurate and fastest traders. Many contestants fight keenly to get the main prize. Andrey Ovdak proved to be the best in the recent step. The next competition will kick off on February 27, 2017 and finish on March 3, 2017.

Real Scalping

Short-term trading is quite difficult and requires hard work and accuracy. Not everyone is attentive, focused and fast enough to succeed in scalping. But these features precisely are required to succeed in this type of trading. This time, Phuong Thi Xuan Vo showed the needed characteristics and took the first place in another step of the Real Scalping contest. InstaForex congratulates the victor and welcomes everyone willing to participate in the next stage. The next step of the Real Scalping contest will begin on March 6, 2017 and come to an end on March 31, 2017.

Great Race 2017

Nazar Rudyi became the winner of the recent stage of the Great Race 2017 contest. We congratulate the victor and other runners-up of yet another step of the annual marathon.

As of 15th February, registrations are open for round 10, the last qualifying round of XM’s One Million Forex World Championship, awaiting XM clients to join in and compete for considerable cash prizes.

The biggest online trading competition is soon coming to an end. All contenders who have been competing in the Contest Arena since last June to make it through to the semi-finals and then to the grand finale, which is coming up in just a few months’ time, will keep on trading to the best of their skills.

Round 10 offers a cash prize pool of $50,000 to the 90 winners who achieve the highest trading results. Moreover, the top 5 traders who excel at their trading outcome during this round have the privilege to progress to the contest semi-finals, which rewards them with a cash prize pool of $500,000 in the final live event.

To join round 10, compete and even achieve a high-ranking place at end of the qualifying round, all clients who are still new in the Forex Arena, only need to have an XM real account and register a contest nickname.

When it comes to trading, some strategies are about time in market, and not market timing. As legendary investor and entrepreneur Warren Buffett once said: “Successful investing takes time, discipline and patience. No matter how great the talent or effort, some things just take time: You can’t produce a baby in one month by getting nine women pregnant.”

With the U.S. market reaching all-time highs at the end of 2016, let’s take a look at someone who was able to benefit from that positive trend.
Please meet Evgeniy Potapov, AKA @ZhenyaPotapov, a Cadet eToro Popular Investor from Russia, who started to build his portfolio at the end of 2013.

When you read his Bio you realise that his “Buy and Hold” strategy, is the key to his success.

“Before starting to copy me, please note: Don’t start doing so if you are not ready to wait for some months, or even years! You could end up buying some positions at a much higher price than I did earlier. There will be returns eventually, but it could take a bit longer than you think. If you don’t have patience or are seeking quick, big profits you might get disappointed. I’m not a professional trader. I’m working with my own money here, and I don’t want to lose it. So here’s my strategy: Building a diversified investment portfolio, which will grow with no sharp differences, and will be as green as possible. Since red in my statistics unnerves me, I’m all about Buy and Hold. I invest in shares of famous companies, who pay dividends, and in exchange-traded funds. I do not invest in currencies.”

A full asset allocation will give his copiers a great CopyTrading experience. His portfolio combines between several ETFs, such as the RSX, which gives him an exposure to the Russian economy, theEWZ, which gives him the Brazilian index, and the TLT, which gives his portfolio some bond exposure in the U.S. economy:

 

  • At the same time, more than 50% of his capital is invested in stocks
  • His full Asset allocation is highly balanced
  • He keeps his risk score low, in accordance with his strategy
  • And while having some losing months, his long-term strategy does pay off from a yearly perspective
  • Lastly, going back to the S&P 500 example, we can see that comparing his strategy to the index reveals the sense behind his approach

It is worth mentioning that XM is the only broker to have been included in the WF100, which on its own is an accolade in times when competition is fierce, regulatory standards are being enhanced, therefore allowing only the companies with a long-term vision to excel.

XM has been experiencing year on year growth, but as noted many times in the past, XM remains humble and focused on its values so that it can keep up this growth and deliver enhanced products month after month.

The World Finance 100 lists those who have reached the pinnacle of achievement across a wide variety of fields of expertise, as well as those organisations and individuals who lead the way in driving their industries forward. The list presents the new business elite, made up of those whose vision and enterprise shapes the conceptual landscape of finance, business and technology. The WF100 research fellowship appraises the invaluable nominations, suggestions and contributions of the World Finance readership (submissions made through the magazine’s homepage), and explores and analyses new trends to unearth the best and the brightest pioneers in business today.

We are glad to inform our clients about two upcoming forex seminars hosted by XM in Morocco in just a few weeks’ time.

Senior Market Strategist Habib Akiki, accompanied by XM company representatives, look forward to welcome all those interested to acquire hands-on knowledge about swing trading techniques in two different Moroccan locations this February.

The seminar entitled Avramis Swing Trading will be presented on the premises of Hilton Garden Inn, Tangier, on 22nd February and at Mövenpick Hotel, Casablanca, on 25th February.

Professional instructor Habib Akiki will demonstrate a series of swing trading techniques to those present at each event by emphasizing the hands-on approach to how to interpret market trending and how to apply certain trading tools with more accuracy.

Essential forex trading concepts, including among others Fibonacci, support-resistance levels and price patterns, will be attributed special attention to. Moreover, participants will also get familiarized with several Tradepedia proprietary tools helpful for identifying trends and minimizing risk.

TFs, or exchange-traded funds, have been created to allow people a more flexible yet comprehensive way to invest in the global financial markets. They are they the ideal investment option for people who wish to invest not in just one company or commodity, but in a whole sector or market trend. Some ETFs even allow shorting the markets, therefore allowing investors to profit from a downward trend.

Listed below are some of the ETFs featured on eToro. Feel free to enter the platform for a more in-depth look:

Powershares QQQ – Tracks the performance of the Nasdaq Index

SPY – Tracks the performance of the S&P500 Index

VXX – Tracks the performance of the VIX Index

SPDR Gold – Tracks the performance of Gold bullions

XLE – Tracks the performance of the US Energy sector

XLF – Tracks the performance of the US Financial sector

XLV – Tracks the performance of the US Health Care sector (Which has bounced back impressively since Donald Trump was elected in office)

Sounds good? Wait, there’s more.

Even if you look at eToro’s ETFs from an objective point of view, the benefits are clear: Low-cost entry fee, diversification across a whole sector, 1 click investment, no commissions and management fees, deposit and withdraw funds without a hassle, and the list goes on.

However, some elements of eToro’s ETFs could be improved to make them more accessible and appealing to professional investors. Elements such as offering a more “exotic” investment theme (like gaming or travel), being privately managed by eToro’s investment committee, and being powered by a state-of-the-art machine learning engine that sifts through billions of data fragments to find the top performing assets and traders on the platform. The assets are then integrated into Market CopyFunds while the traders are integrated into Top Traders CopyFunds.

Take for example the GainersQtr CopyFund. Its portfolio is constructed of active and low-risk investors who have shown positive gains for several quarters. Each trader was selected by the machine learning engine, according to specific and predetermined parameters. The same engine then watches closely the performance of each trader and alerts the Investment Committee if he has stepped outside the CopyFund’s parameters.

The bottom line

While the similarities are there, the technological edge and the hands-on management of CopyFunds take the concept of Exchange Traded Funds to the level on its own.
