Deriving profit from currency movements means increasing the deposited funds into trade. Speculative profit from investments has two the most important charactiristics:
- Funds operated in the trade.
- Profit gained from a trade.
The price movement is described in the price chart where the currency rate change is displayed in the course of time. Currency traders carry out the trades basing on rate behaviour and its position at the price chart. Looking at the graph the trader predicts where the price will go further (up or down) and makes profit in case of successful projection.
For example, let us look through the intraday graph of Euro rate versus the US dollar for September 13, 2007:
In point 1 the trdaer relies on that during the next 30 minutes the Euro rise against the dollar and get an uptrend option priced at 100 dollars. Any way his profit amounts to 100 * profit coefficient = 180 dollars (profit coefficient for this type of options equals to 1.80), by 80 dollars more than funds put into the trade, i.e. the net profit for half an hour reaches 80 dollars for invested 100 dollars.
Then, anticipating a rate fall in point2, the trader obtains a downtrend option during the next 5 hours, cost - 200 dollars. In this case profit totals to 200* profit coefficient = 360 dollars, and the trade's net profit reaches 160 dollars for invested 200 dollars.
Work by the described principle is the main way of profoit earning on financial markets:
1) trader forestalls the direction of rate movement;
2) trader opens a trade in this direction;
3) trader fixes the profit in a deal.
