Why Are The Markets Called Bearish and Bullish?

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 7, 2019 6:05:00 AM / by Brigette Dumas posted in Apiary Fund, currency market, market events, bearish, bullish

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

The terms Bearish and Bullish are often the terms used to describe general actions and positions, either of an individual asset or of the market as a whole. Bear and bull markets have been named after how each animal attacks its prey. A bull typically attacks with its horns swiping upwards and a bear attacks with its claws swiping downwards. To give you a better understanding of what bearish and bullish means, I’ll start by saying that a bear market refers to a decline in prices, usually for a few months, in an asset or single security, group of security, or market as a whole. In whole, a bull represents when the market prices are rising.

Picking a Favorite Market to Trade

[fa icon="calendar'] Jul 24, 2019 6:02:00 AM / by Lukas MacMacKen posted in Trader Development, Apiary Fund, currency market, pairs

Everyone has that one pair. The first one they look at when they look at their platform for the day. The last pair you look at before signing off for the day. Or, if you only trade one pair, it is that pair. Everyone, whether they realize it or not, has a favorite pair. The favorite pair you have may just happen to be the only pair you’ve traded or one of the few pairs you’ve traded and was the most profitable. No matter how your favorite pair came to be or what it means for your trading, sometimes a little change can do a trader some good, especially when your trading maya be in a slight funk. While Apiary Fund has 29 pairs to choose from, looking at them all can be overwhelming, so having a favorite, or favorite few, can be beneficial.

If you’ve been reading and somewhat keeping up on the articles that Apiary Fund has been releasing, a lot of them have been talking about how while trading is a difficult field, but it is somewhat easy at the same time. The transition from that hard to that easy feeling is really just finding a nice strategy that you can execute with the time you have and the goals you want to reach. These can take time to find and reach yourself when starting out, but can be more quickly discovered by working and talking to someone who has been trading for quite some time and has gone through many strategies.

What Is the FOMC?

[fa icon="calendar'] May 30, 2019 6:00:00 AM / by Lukas MacMacKen posted in FOMC, trading forex, shawn lucas, currency market

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is the most critical monetary policy committee in the U.S. The FOMC has the most control over the U.S. Dollar compared to any other entity. To FOREX traders, the FOMC is colloquially known as the “feds” from time to time and is actually not part of the federal government per se. They were established under President Woodrow Wilson in 1913 as a governing board that is a section of the Federal Government, but set up as a private corporation in which the U.S. government bestowed upon monetary decisions. So, as a non-governmental governmental agency, who are and what all does the FOMC do asides offer one of Shawn Lucas’ favorite to trade news events?

Common Myths about the Currency Market

[fa icon="comment"] 2 Comments

When someone says they're a FOREX trader, a lot of times, people will scoff at them. Personally, throughout my time working at Apiary Fund and being at Trader on the Street from the beginning, I have heard that “FOREX is a scam,” "you can’t possibly be making money,” “you can’t make a living off of that,” and so much more. This sort of thing comes with the territory. There are a lot of myths about FOREX; much more than any other trading or investment source out there. So, what are the most common myths, how did they arise, and how do we know they are myths?

In this article, I thought being able to discuss the most common language you will encounter while trading in the Forex markets was important so you don’t feel as if you’re in completely over your head. You should be prepared enough to follow along with the lingo when going through your education to learn how to trade, and I’m hoping to provide you with some of the most common language you can expect to see beforehand. The first most common term you can expect to see a lot of is Pips. The following are 12 terms you're likely to encounter:

If printing a ton of money causes hyperinflation and devalues money and amount of money is pretty static for all countries, how can you make money trading and investing in money? Forex trading has the great opportunity to trade 24 hours a day and five days a week (opens late Sunday but remains open until closing early Friday balancing out to approximately five days). And there's also a bit more to the world money flow than the ‘all countries have a set amount of currency’ idea. So, how exactly is money made by investing in money?
