Etoro

eToro is undoubtedly one of the internet’s favourite places to trade online, with nearly 100,000,000 million trades placed to date. Recently, eToro took another leap forward in terms of online trading when they launched four mobile apps – two for iOS devices and two for Android devices.

There are two kinds of eToro apps available. The first is a traditional mobile trading platform that offers up-to-the-second real time prices as well as the ability to open and close trades, catch the latest market news and fully manage your trading portfolio, all from your Apple or Android-powered mobile device.

The US Federal Reserve has continued its bond-buying scheme; it was announced in a press conference following Wednesday’s meeting. This move saw US markets closing at record highs, as the quantitative easing measures continue in America. Many traders at eToro watched with glee as their stocks and commodities soared in value.

In recent months, the Federal Reserve has been buying bonds like crazy, in a bid to stimulate America’s economy but, even though things are starting to look a little brighter on the other side of the pond, there is no hint from the powers that be that there will be any tapering of the stimulus programme.

During Monday’s trading sessions, the price of gold and other precious metals fell dramatically at eToro and other online trading platforms. Admittedly, these falls were no where near the levels of June’s gold price crash but they were still hefty drops, ahead of Wednesday’s US Federal Reserve meeting. These recent market moves have been compounded by precious metal traders, especially gold traders, closing long term positions in fear of further falls in metal markets.

Following a small rally during the Asian trading sessions, in which gold prices reached $1,336 per ounce, prices retreated, nearing Friday’s five-week low for the precious metal. During Monday’s trading, many of the world’s markets rose but the US dollar lost ground against both the euro and the British pound, reaching eight month lows against its trans-Atlantic counterpart.

Over the past 12 months, investors at Dubai based online Forex trading company MMA Forex have been attempting to get their investments back. According to Al Bawaba, a Middle-East based news agency, in October 2012, customers of the Forex company were notified that their dividend payments would be stopped for two months, which was extended to ten. Then, when attempts were made to withdraw investments, they could not and, at the time of writing this article, MMA Forex customers were still awaiting their money.

Things aren’t looking great for MMA Forex investors, as the company has been placed on a number of warning lists across Europe and it looks less and less likely that they will be paid. Authorities in Sweden, Ireland and Switzerland are warning their citizens to avoid doing business with MMA Capital Markets Limited, MMA Forex, MMA FX and MMABank GT, according to a recent article in Gulf News.

New software is to be accompanied by a new name, as BetOnMarkets is to become Binary.com in a rebrand that is intended to “reflect its position as an industry leading service provider of binary options trading.” or so a press release at www.betonmarkets.com says.

BetOnMarkets‘ rebrand has been planned to coincide with the launch of their brand new web trading interface and their brand new website, binary.com. The new financial betting platform is a huge step forward for the company and this new interface is accompanied by a new way of doing things, including; deposit offers and bonuses, a virtual demo account, in-depth training guides and a virtual tour of the site and all of its services.

You are still able to make all of your favourite bets and trades but now BetOnMarkets boasts such bets as 110% returns on rise/fall bets, returns above 1000% available on higher/lower, touch/no touch, and in/out bets and no hidden fees or commissions.

Binary.com will still offer all of the markets that BetOnMarkets did. You will still find dozens and dozens of Forex, indices and commodities markets so you have the same number of opportunities to place bets and trades as before, only now you get a brand new, easy to use trading platform.

This looks like a bold move from a brand that’s on the move in terms of financial betting online. Watch this space for further developments from BetOnMarkets over the coming months.

Can the falling value of Apple shares excite you as much as a 92nd minute equaliser in the FA Cup final? Oh yes! At Ladbrokes Financials, you can actually sit and watch with anticipation as your bets unfold. This is all the more fun if you’re placing two minute bets.

When placing bets at Ladbrokes Financials, you can choose from various bet periods, including; two minutes, five minutes, 20 minutes, 1 hour and 24 hours. It’s the ‘two minute wonders’ that are the really exciting bets though. If you place bet at Ladbrokes Financials and you really want the thrills and excitement of instant betting (and winning), you need to place these ultra short bets.

Until the last decade or so, buying shares in computer and technology companies has been deemed a risky business indeed by experts, with both big profits but also big losses being made by even the most informed and experienced traders. However, these days buying tech shares at eToro or other online investment sites does not leave you open to the same levels of risk (or the same levels of potential profit in a lot of cases).

More and more of the markets’ monies are now invested in companies like Apple, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft and at eToro, you can choose whether to open ‘buying’ positions that will profit if the market rises in value or you can open ‘selling’ positions that will generate a profit for you if the market falls.

Currency traders at websites like eToro have seen the US dollar climb, as the Federal Reserve looks to become the first of the world’s major central banks to tighten its monetary policy. The greenback made headway against both the euro and the Japanese yen during Monday’s trading sessions, climbing by 0.2 per cent against the euro and 0.8 per cent against the yen.

Ahead of Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke’s congressional testimony on Wednesday and Thursday, investors are beginning to speculate that the dollar will grow in strength, as they believe that the US will finally step away from the current ultra-loose policies that have been in place for the last couple of years.
