FXPRIMUS' Mario Sant Singh Answers Your Top Forex Questions: Hurricane Sandy Notwithstanding

FXPRIMUS Director of Education & Training looks at news-related and Forex trading questions

EBÈNE, MAURITIUS--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2012) - Going into the start of November, traders' risk sentiment has been hurt by Hurricane Sandy, with the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the U.S. stock and options markets closed. The disaster, together with the uncertainty of the Euro Zone, triggered a "safer mode" across the broad market at the end of October. See the latest market developments in Mario's Daily Market Report articles.

Notwithstanding the Hurricane hitting the U.S. East Coast, leading global foreign exchange trader, educator and author Mario Sant Singh, looked at GBPUSD bearishness, Spanish debt and the Euro, Australian unemployment, negative correlation on the EURUSD and USDCHF, and trading strategies, in his AskMarioSingh.com blog, "Your toughest Forex Questions answered daily".

He also addressed traders' questions on how to craft a trading plan, how to calculate risk-reward ratio, and when to enter a trade. "Ten essential elements of a trading plan include a daily trading routine, market news and events for fundamental analysis, chart time frames and entry & exit criteria and analysis for a technical view," said Mario. "Successful traders also need to put in place, strategies for various market conditions, currency pairs to trade and pairs to avoid, market and mental conditions to stop trading, and amount to risk per trade."

Taking a long view on the USD, Mario said "I expect the USD to decline further in value in the long term which will have an inverse effect on the prices of commodities. This means that I expect the price of commodities to soar in future," he said.
