Learn Forex and Learn It NOW!
I first learned of "Forex" when I was watching one of those late-night informercials, the kind that gets one curious about what they are talking about, so you watch it, because it is about people making alot of money. Forex, was a word that they threw around, like it was an assumed known thing. I went to the company's website the next day, and discovered that the magical "Forex" is the trading of currencies, traditionally called Foreign Exchange. Well, that takes the category of one's required knowledge of how to work this money making phenomenon, from kindergarten, straight up through to college. In order to know what Forex is, you have to know alot about what happens to money. The green pieces
of cloth that we fold and carry with us, the numbers that are shown on bank statements and checks, that translate into our ability to actually function in transactional society. But, in order to know that is what you need to know, you first have to know, what Foreign Exchange is.
What startled me from the discovery of the company who had the website, was that they were promoting something called Forex, and they gave me no chance to know what that was referring to during the broadcast. I didn't recognize it as anything I have ever heard of before. And, what frightened me, was that I had heard of it before, and was so overwhelmed with the euphamisms and cute words of the activity, that the recognition was not possible. It was not possible until I saw the company's website. It is a good company, I'm not saying anything about them, and their ability to simplify something as complex as this is as an attempt or a success, is admirable.
However, the fact is, that to know how to work it, you have to learn it. I first learned of Foreign Exchange when I worked for six months as temporary support staff in the Foreign Exchange Group at Citibank, at their headquarters in New York City. I sat at the same desk at wrap-up times as professional foreign exchange traders, men who lived breathed and worked the systems to get their paychecks from the second largest bank in the nation. And, from them, I learned what they were doing. I learned that they sold dollars or bought yen, and did so in amounts that would herald any brinks vault if it wasn't just numbers on papers. I looked at their trade sheets, at the prices and the lots, the amount of
money that was being transacted back and forth, and they were writing letters to each bank they traded with (they were actually dealing with the banks, directly, rather than any particular anonymous pool of buyers and sellers) to confirm the deals and without the confirmations, the deals would not be solid. So they had me stuffing, addressing envelopes, to the banks of the world, to enclose their confirmations. The traders told me that they believed that Foreign Exchange was the most secure trading platform they knew, and they would not touch a stock if someone paid them to. Luckily, they said, they didn't have to, and they were happy working with the currencies. "Companies go down, and you don't
always know why, but there is always money."
None of the banks were Russian, because the USSR did not trade currencies. They did not trade. It was the middle of the cold war, and there were no economic ties with the USSR, despite the fact that grain was being sent from the United States to feed them. So, the world and its perception of money was still predicated on the widespread understanding that people use money and money changes hands, and this is an investment field that is worthy. The EURO dollar did not exist yet, and it was not on the board. The European Union did not yet exist, but the traders warned, "If everyone starts using the same currency like they are talking about with that, there won't
be a foreign exchange, and this field would no longer be an option for investment." The Euro came about anyway, and is still in its infancy stage of use. But the trader also said, First the European Union, and then what? What will be left?"
I think that awareness of Foreign Exchange is a thing that has come to its time in this complex world we live in, when people are thinking about the world economy and one world this and one world that, and they look at the imagined smiley face of sameness, and don't see the despair that is waiting behind it. So, that said, let's learn about Foreign Exchange, and what it can do for you.
There are many intelligent people who were scared off from college for one or another reason but who could have gone because they had the capacity for learning and applying what they learned. I was one, where there was so much going against me that college was first a requirement and then an albatross, then a desire, and then an impossiblity but that is another story altogether; when someone says that "Anyone can do this" they mean, anyone who thought that the peering eyes of professors and the grading of essays was too much to anticipate, who didn't go that route, plus anyone else who actually did go that route, can do this. So, if you went to a field where
you work with your hands, or get tips serving tables, or sweat in a sewer, and you know you are smart, you can do this.
The reason you can do this is because the learning is something you do in your own spare time, at your own personal pace, without anyone telling you that you have to complete so many pages in so little hours and have your work analyzed. It means that you can work with your own understanding of the way and the pace at which you learn, and become successful with it. At the end of this rainbow, is the gold pot of an industry where nobody has to look at how you are dressed for a job interview, or how you can answer trick questions. It is a very small activity, that can grow to large rewards. And, you don't quit what you are doing. You keep doing what you are
doing, and for anyone else knows, you are spending your weekends bird watching or joined a lodge of singing widgets.
The only true requirement is the promise that you make to yourself, that you will do it, and the financial investment in education and in the account, which will be your training, and your money. College tuition is expensive, and trade schools are expensive. They advertise that you can get loans or grants in order to attend their course that will prepare you for a career in some or other profession where you must start at the beginning, and what is universal is that you have to pay for education, and you have to start at a beginning. All the rest, is in your own hands. The good news is, that this education is so inexpensive, that you don't need a loan or a
grant, unless using a credit card; and the education will stay with you for years upon years, and make you more aware of the economic state of the world, as well as make you empowered to start at the beginning of your own adventure. This is your own adventure, which can lead to many hours of pleasure, and many opportunities towards wealth. With experience, you can achieve wealth, at nobody's time table but your own. Except, you have to watch what you are doing. The world turns, values change, buys and sells must be made, and that becomes your passion. Because when something is really good for you, you get passionate about it.
The program of Rapid Forex, not a broker, not trying to get you to become their customer for the money that you will trade with them, but an educator, is engined by Robert Borowski with many years of experience and much education behind him, that he filters into his programs which he provides with a fervor and a dedication that is refreshing and encouraging, because he provides materials and support structures to help you to learn. The Rapid Forex programs are built with the beginner in mind, and helps you to get to the starting gate of trading, supports you as you acclimate to trading, and takes you all the way through their program which also addresses
experienced traders who are always learning. The opportunity to grow, and to grow with, Rapid Forex, is an opportunity that is given to you, and to the extent of your desire for support and your ability to keep up, is an opportunity that you should take. But, you can succeed without it, if you follow their Extravagance Program of simply going step by step, developing a nest egg upon which to retire and then to retire, with a passive income without work, and without Forex. So, he has programs that help you to get to the success of financial security as well as some very valuable worldly savvy. For those who have little knowledge of what it is like to have money, he offers a briefing about those
things which would become of a concern to you, and so you get some advice that is outside of Forex, but is also valuable. Because managing a paycheck, and managing a portfolio, are distinctly different things. He automatically believes in your ability to succeed, because he has seen success firsthand.
I shall also bring you other suggestions for your education, which are not Rapid Forex, but who are giving courses that you might wish to take. Some are brokers, advisors, and other educational companies. Those who are beginners of Forex, are my focus, and I shall try to bring about those resources which will be a rounded and balanced approach to learning Forex. But, there is none that will tell you, you don't need to learn.
I believe that the best introduction to Forex is in the form of the videos that are given by Rapid Forex. I spent the time looking at their introductory Insight Trader Package, and I did it in one sitting which I suggest you do as well, so a nice afternnoon would be a good reserve, to sit down and look at these materials. It costs nothing. You can click on this Link to download it absolutely free. What you will find is an afternoon very well spent, with the unexpected surprise of knowing more Think of the time between lunch and dinner as the time for your
Insight Trader Package. It is a full scale presentation, with its own browser, a multimedia theatre on your desktop, that you could see is built for durable use. If you aren't glad you did,
then you might know more about Forex than the information this has given to you, in which case you would need to follow some more advanced links. But if you know nothing about Forex, and you wonder what is in it for you, then by all means, you should download it and make it a day to spend. In the end, you are also not asked to spend any money. You are given the opportunity to choose your next step, and it is assumed you would want to know more. Watch all or part of it again if you want, it sits on your computer, for you to review, and to think about, and of course there are ads, for other Rapid Forex courses. When you feel ready, go ahead and buy an advanced course, which isn't alot of money
bearing in mind the cost of education. But, be sure in your own mind first, that is what you want to do. You can visit brokers where they have their courses also, and decide which learning approach works best for you. Some people like to have things explained, and others like to figure it out. So, go where your own learning is served best, and I shall help you find that.
If you already know about Forex, and want to know what Rapid Forex might have to offer to you, then I could share this link with you:
There are some very interesting Forex trading techniques which Robert Borowski has both studied and developed. Professional Forex traders approach him regularly and tell him how much they learn from his material. Here is one example, called Forex Surfing.
There are other trainers on the internet, who will take a beginner and show how to make money in the Foreign Exchange. It is a good idea that you do similarly to what you may if you were in a bookstore, when you check out the different books that come under the
same subject heading. Some time is spent looking at the look, feel and presentation, and then you choose the one that fits well with your own unique style. Sometimes two books are purchased. That's something like what I do. When I want to learn something I don't look at one source, I look at three, because between them I get more complete information, and in some instances when the philosophies or information of one author differed from another, I got to choose, which made the most sense to me. In some instances like a philosophical area that could work without consequences, but with the Foreign Exchange, you get to learn what works. You do that with the myriad of practise accounts that use fake money
and give real results you don't get to keep, but you get to know you are capable of making. Check out this trainer, too: The Affluent Desktop Currency Trader.
There, you could download a section of their lessons, for free. This trainer works with those who are just getting started in Forex. So give this a look.
What makes him interesting is his approach, as he begins, "I will direct you and show you how to place insane amounts of money in your account by teaching and transforming you into an International Online Currency Trader. You don't need to know anything about trading or finance."Sounds Pretty Good, huh? The thing is, in Forex, Large Profits are Possible.
I can't stress enough the importance of learning, and learning in the manner that best suits you. I have seen in general observations, that there is a difference between sitting in a classroom, per se, and actually learning what is taught. The more you gather up in opportunities of learning the greater the chances are your mastery, and to succeed in this market is something that you can control. I hope you find a great success.
