This is What You Need in a Good Forex Trading Mobile App

Singapore is the largest FX centre in the Asia-Pacific and #3 globally. According to data issued by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, April 2016 saw the country’s FX volumes touch US$517 billion, a rise of 35% over the amount three years earlier.

Although most of the trading is carried out by institutional investors and banks, forex trading also provides retail investors with the opportunity to make large gains with a relatively low upfront investment. But being away from your desk may mean that you miss the chance to make a profitable trade.

Fortunately, mobile trading offers a solution. You can trade at home without having to bother about turning on your laptop. Using your smartphone even allows you to carry out FX trades when you are commuting or have some time to spare during the day. Start mobile trading here, and don’t miss another profitable trade.

But which mobile forex app should you use? Which are the essential features that you should look out for when selecting an FX app?

Your Complete How-To Guide to Trading Forex

Foreign exchange investment, or forex trading, is not quite as foreign a concept as one would expect. Even a new investor would already have had some experience trading in foreign currencies.

Whenever someone travels overseas to places like Japan for example, they would exchange their Singapore dollars for Japanese Yen in order to pay for their accommodation and travel. Exchanging one currency for another, as in the example above, is a simple form of forex trading.

Forex trading has also served investors well over the years for those willing to do additional research. The foreign exchange market is one of the most liquid markets around with over $5 trillion daily trading volume recorded in recent years. The foreign exchange market comprises many market participants ranging from hedge fund investors, business enterprises and retail currency traders.

5 reasons you need to invest in China now

In the late 1970s, China liberalised its state-run economy and initiated a series of market reforms. Consequently, the country witnessed a several decades-long economic boom that lifted more than 800 million of its people out of poverty.

But Chinese economic growth has been losing its momentum of late. The rise in GDP has fallen from 10%+ every year to a more subdued 6% to 7%. In 2016, GDP grew by 6.7%. The government is targeting a growth rate of 6.5% for 2016-20. Although this is lower than what the country has achieved in the past, it is substantially more than the rate at which western economies are expanding.

In this environment, is it prudent to invest in China?

Several factors indicate that the China story is far from over. In fact, the country could be at the beginning of the second phase of its growth. This time around, economic expansion would be fuelled by its large middle class and a new wave of measures that could help to reinvigorate the economy.

The five points listed below indicate that the next phase of China’s economic growth may be just about to begin.
