Financial assets and markets

Adyen Noters

More recently, categories such as financial assets, brokers, traders, digital currencies, etc., were of interest to a limited number of people in certain professions. Today, everything related to investments, intangible assets or financial markets can be discussed at specialized forums by former engineers, schoolchildren, housewives and even humanities students. And this is quite a natural phenomenon. Providing access to the global financial market through the Internet has contributed to the development of online trading and everything connected with it. Everyone who wants to earn extra money, got the opportunity to become a full-fledged participant in e-commerce, and to take in this exciting process the place that corresponds to its capabilities and abilities.


Financial assets and markets


Types of financial assets

If you decide to become a full-fledged trader, you will have to learn the key concepts of this type of activity. And above all, deal with such categories as “financial assets”, “trading instruments”, “financial assets market”.

When searching for definitions of what “financial assets” are on the World Wide Web, it is imperative to indicate that you are interested in this term from the position of an online trading participant. This is due to the fact that in economic theory, financial assets include everything from monetary gold to direct investment and payables / receivables. And, according to international standards of financial and management accounting, the assets in question are in no way connected with the category of novice trader. In this case, the term “digital financial assets” or simply “digital assets” is more appropriate.

The lack of a unified legislation regulating the issues of online trading of intangible assets is one of the main problems of this type of activity. But this issue must be resolved by joint efforts so that the US position does not contradict the laws of China or Japan. At the moment, the work of brokers is controlled by individual regulators who follow the legal rules of the country where they are registered.

Modern Internet brokers provide access not only to traditional trading tools, but also to new digital assets, including:

● Currency pairs.

● Shares, bonds, certificates of deposit, bills of exchange.

● Futures, options and swaps.

CFD contracts.

● Precious metals.

● Commodities.


● Indices.

 What factors influence their cost?

When planning to earn using online trading, you need to know exactly in which direction you will work. You can not cover everything at once. Many participants in online trading only consider themselves to be traders, being in fact ordinary investors. They find an appropriate broker who provides such a service as PAMM accounts or automated trading and invest money, receiving (of course, no one gives 100% guarantees) a certain income. At the same time, it is possible to manage risks (the rule is simple: the amount of profit is inversely proportional to the probability of losing your investment), using signals, charts, indicators, that is, working like a real trader.

Each asset has its own nuances, about which you need to know as much as possible so that your activity brings profit. For example, when dealing with shares of enterprises, one must take into account that at the end of a quarter / year, many of them overstate financial performance, and this automatically affects the value of these assets. The rate of major world currencies depends on the political situation, economic indicators or the cost of strategic raw materials. For example, the increase in the price of oil is reflected in the exchange rate of those countries that are the main global suppliers of these raw materials. Such an unpredictable digital asset, like a cryptocurrency, can rise in price greatly if some serious investor decides to invest a decent amount in it. And to predict all the factors that influence the value of a particular asset is simply unrealistic. But if you work a lot in this direction, then you can achieve positive results and learn how to make money by entering into only profitable deals based on your own forecasts.

What a newbie trader should know about financial markets and trading on them

But not only the above analytical skills help the trader to earn in financial markets. Experienced experts recommend that anyone who plans to work, relying solely on their own intuition, immediately drop this idea. If you trust your “extrasensory” abilities, register with the bookmaker. There and the rates are higher, and you do not need to learn financial terms (every trader has to do it).

For those who are determined to receive basic / additional income by entering into financial transactions with the help of online brokers, the following recommendations will be helpful:

● Carefully choose a trading platform. Study the maximum number of objective characteristics of a broker, not strongly trusting reviews on the Internet (they can be ordered by both resource owners and competitors). First of all, pay attention to the “age” of the company and the presence of reputable regulators.

● Do not forget that almost every broker provides additional opportunities for profit. For example, an affiliate program (there are companies that pay 50-100 dollars for each trader brought to the project).

● Always carefully study the tools that will help you make the right predictions for a profitable deal. These include: advisors, indicators, trader’s calculators, charts, individual programs and much more.

● You should not trust on all 100% demo accounts, in terms of potential profits that you earn with the help of virtual money. As a rule, even among the most honest brokers this indicator is always higher than in reality.

By adhering to the listed recommendations, being careful and carefully analyzing each step, you can eventually become a qualified trader and make this type of activity your main source of income.
