How To Trade Forex New Ebook by Vince Stanzione for Deriv.com

Foreign exchange – forex or the FX market, as it is commonly known – is one of the biggest marketplaces in the world. Here, no trading floor exists; banks, brokers, companies, and governments trade among themselves through high-tech computer networks, such as those offered by Reuters and Bloomberg.

It’s hard to comprehend the colossal amount of money traded in this market on a daily basis, which totals around 7.5 trillion USD per day, as reported in a 2022 survey by the BIS Triennial Central Bank Survey. Approximately 10% is fuelled by companies trading overseas, needing to convert currencies for routine commerce, such as import/export businesses; the rest is pure speculation and investment.

Today, it’s possible for anyone to trade currencies – even with a small amount of risk capital, thanks to deriv.com. You can also trade in the FX market regardless of which country you are in. Prices are always being quoted and are universally accessible.

The currency market offers nearly 24 hours of seamless trading – starting on Sunday at 9:00 pm GMT, which is early morning in Asia, and carrying on all the way until Friday evening in New York, or 10:00 pm GMT. Although the FX market is liquid almost all the time, the most active times are typically around 1:00 pm GMT to 4:00 pm GMT when the London and US markets are both open. This is also known as the overlap sessions. Another busy time is around 8:00 am GMT, when London initially opens and the Far East is closing down for the day.

Investors and speculators

In this article, we will look at how Investors and speculators trade currencies in an attempt to benefit from movements in the currency exchange markets. They do not intend to use the money itself for any practical purposes; instead, their motives are purely driven by speculation and a simple desire to profit from the price differences. The actual principal is not changing hands.

The majority of all FX trades – i.e. approximately 80% – involve the US dollar (USD). The USD remains the world’s reserve currency, used when trading commodities such as Gold and Oil (which are quoted in USD per ounce or barrel). Companies that do business throughout many parts of the world still report in USD. Bitcoin whilst a cryptocurrency is still quoted the majority of the time in US Dollars.

What can you trade with Deriv.com?

Major pairs

The most popular, commonly traded currency pairs, such as EUR/USD and USD/JPY. All major pairs include USD since it’s the world’s most traded currency.

Minor pairs

Currency pairs that don’t include USD, but still encompass the currency of developed countries. This could be GBP/CAD or EUR/ CHF.

Exotic pairs

Currency pairs consisting of one major currency and the currency of a developing country, such as Turkey (available on DMT5). Pairs such as USD/RUB or USD/THB would come under this group.

Unique Digital options

offered by Deriv.com

Digital options have a fixed payout and a fixed premium. Before purchasing each trade, you’ll know the exact cost of each trade

and how much you stand to gain or lose. At worst, the maximum that you could ever part with is the price initially paid to purchase the trade; at best, you’ll win back your initial stake plus the payout amount displayed for your consideration when you first bought the trade. Thus, as forex trading goes, the digital option route is clear-cut and predictable in terms of the potential outcomes. Your risk on DTrader is strictly limited to your premium.


deriv traded option digital options
Deriv Digital options give you a variety of ways to profit from a currency pair. (not available in all regions)

In my new E-book How To Trade the Forex market, I go into more depth on the different ways to back a currency, as well as how I use technical analysis to help spot trends in the market. I also go through the Forex terminology and take you through trading examples.

A CFD is a derivative product that you can use to speculate on the future direction of a market’s price.

You’ll never take ownership of the underlying asset (in this case, currencies). Profit or loss results only from the difference in the price of the underlying asset when the contract is closed. A CFD gives you exposure to a market and allows you to go long (trade for the price to go up) or short (trade for the price to go down). The CFD will remain open until you close it, or it gets stopped out.

Deriv.com believes in reasonable trading and offer ways to limit your risk such as stop loss, take profit and limit orders they also offer a no negative balance guarantee which means should a trade go heavily against you, and you don’t have a stop loss order you will not be asked for additional funds.


Deriv.com use Metatrader 5 (MT5)

MetaTrader 5 (MT5) is a robust online trading platform developed by MetaQuotes Software. Whilst, at first sight, MT5 can look a little overwhelming, take it a bite at a time, and you’ll easily be able to rise to master it. The software is available free of charge and can be downloaded on a desktop, or you can use a mobile device will apps available for Android and iPhone/iPad.

If you have say $1,000 with no leverage then the most you could trade is $1000 which is not that appealing, fortunately Deriv offer generous leverage which will vary depending on your country of residency.

Let’s take for example 50:1 leverage this means for every $1000 you can control $50,000 this of course will magnify your gains and losses so should be used carefully. I explain risk management techniques in my E-book How To Trade Forex.

Trading a pair

In currency trading you are always trading a pair, it’s one currency the base currency against the quote currency. If you went long (buy) EUR/ USD then you are buying Euros and Selling US Dollars, you cannot just say buy Euros.

Bid price: The bid price (SELL) is what the broker is willing to pay for the base currency in this example 1.18816

Ask price: The ask price (BUY) is the rate at which a broker will sell the quote currency. The ask price is always higher than the bid price, in this case 1.18831

Spread: The difference between the ask price and the bid price, which allows the broker to earn a commission on your trade. After you cover the spread between the bid and ask prices, you can start making a profit on your position. (Spread = Ask price minus Bid price). Tighter the spread the better.

Overall, currencies do not move in large percentages, but what exaggerates the moves is the use of leverage. A 0.5% daily move when you have 100 x leverage becomes magnified.

‘Making Money from Falling Stocks Is Not Malicious – Short Selling Is an Effective Risk Management Tool’ says Vince Stanzione

Vince stanzione short selling Millionaire trader

Wall Street veteran and author of “The Millionaire Dropout” Vince Stanzione weighed in on the flurry of activity and short-selling scandals that have rocked financial markets over the last few months. With the financial media recently laser-focused on stories like the independent retail traders of Reddit and the Gamestop (GME) squeeze campaign, Stanzione addressed what he believes is an unfair characterization portraying short-selling as financially irresponsible and malicious.

Self Made Multi Millionaire Trader Vince Stanzione believes the next 12 to 18 months will be a very lucrative time for short sellers and retail traders can also profit from falling stock prices

“Short selling is the act of selling a stock you do not own, which you have to borrow in the market in the expectation that the price of the stock will decline, before buying the stock back (hopefully at a lower price) and returning the stock to the lender,” said Stanzione. “For example, if I short 100 shares of a stock at $120 and that stock then goes down to $100, I can buy the stock back at less than I paid for it and make a profit. In Europe, Contracts for Difference (CFDs) have been used for over 25 years by professional and retail traders to profit from a range of markets including stocks, indices and commodities. Financial Futures and traded options (put options) have been around for many decades. These allow you to profit or hedge from down movements. The idea of making money from a falling price is not new. Retail customers – especially in the U.S. – tend to shy away from short selling.

Going Short Has a Limited Upside
Stanzione also noted that the maximum potential gain on shorting a stock is 1x, as the most a company can go down to is zero – and that is an extremely rare event. Returns can be magnified with leverage or using a traded option. On the other side, a stock does not have a maximum upside and could easily go up 500%. In theory, there is no limit to the potential losses from being short, so it is important to manage risk and position size correctly. Short squeezes, where rapid and significant upward price moves cause short sellers to cover in mass quantities, can push prices against short sellers.

“Even in a bull market there are always opportunities to profit from falling individual stocks,” Stanzione said. “But overall, the majority of my trading gains remain from being long stocks. Short selling is a bit like driving a car: most of the time you’re going forward, but at times you will need to reverse. We have witnessed a very favorable period for stocks, with many speculative names and SPAC stocks moving based on a lot of hype and rosy expectations – all of which are likely to disappoint. These are the types of scenarios where going short makes sense as a stock returns back to a price in-line with the fundamentals. It’s worth remembering though that markets take the stairs up, but often take the elevator going down. It’s not unusual to see large falls in a stock happen over short periods, especially when things start to go wrong. But I believe the next 12 to 18 months will be a very lucrative time for short sellers.”

$1,000 invested in Ethereum is now $215,000

Whilst many focus on what a stock or crypto currency is doing daily or even hourly it is often wise to take a long term view.

The graphic below shows what would have happened had you invested $1,000 and just let it for 5 years. As you can see Ethereum won the race by a massive margin.

Of course the past is not the future but I remain positive on Cryptos and Ethereum and Bitcoin remain in a up trend and a bull market. Of course there is plenty of short term volatility but if your holding with a longer term investment horizon daily moves will not concern you.

Another idea is to look at a monthly savings plan where you buy a set amount each month. Some months you will get more others less but you will get an “average price” over time.

You can open an account here and start trading with as little as £150, $100 or 100 Euros

Psst, don’t tell anyone about Ethereum

Vince Stanzione says Ethereum remains a great investment
Vince Stanzione says Ethereum remains a great investment in 2021

In case you had not noticed Ethereum(ETH) is up over 100% so far this year, yes 100% in just over a month. The good news whilst I don’t expect it all to be a smooth ride and yes there will be plenty of bumps I do expect to see Ethereum move up at least a further 100% before the end of the year and that is still an amazing return in a zero interest rate world.
Of course, I may be totally wrong but if you have followed my track over the last 35 years you know my averages are rather good, but it’s your money and your choice.

Vince Stanzione Shares His Thoughts on Shorts Squeezes and the Power of the Small Traders

With over 35 years of trading experience, Self Made Multi-Millionaire and New York Times Bestselling author of “The Millionaire Dropout,” Vince Stanzione, has plenty of trading war stories to share, but today is coming out in support of smaller traders and resents that Wall Street is calling them “dumb money.” 

It has long been overdue Wall Street has treated Retail as dumb money for so long, yet today’s “dumb money” is far smarter than it was in the 2000 DOT COM boom and is far better equipped with access to institutional data. The only issue he sees is that many brokers cannot cope with the surge in volume, and platforms are seeing regular crashes which makes exiting trades difficult.

Stanzione thinks what you’re seeing in markets now is not just about money. It’s a deep routed resentment against Wall Street, financial media and the belittling of the retail trader with their preaching of knowing better. Of course, the best way to teach Wall Street institutions a lesson is by making them lose money.  Stocks with high short interest and low floats seem to be the easy target right now, but this could easily change to overvalued stocks where retail “short” stocks.

Vince Stanzione Bitcoin learn to trade Vince Stanzione Shares His Thoughts on Shorts Squeezes and the Power of the Small Traders
“Take some of your profits and lock it out of sight. He is a big fan of holding Bitcoin (with no leverage) as a long-term savings plan”

As he approaches 52, Stanzione would tell the next generation to shoot for the stars but also keep one foot on the ground. Take some of your profits and lock it out of sight. He is a big fan of holding Bitcoin (with no leverage) as a long-term savings plan as he believe it will protect you from inflation which he says is running at 15%+ a year, not what the government tells you and all FIAT currencies are debasing to near zero.

As for trading, yes, it’s a very speculative bull market but a good trader can also make money in a bear market, so be ready to switch to short trades, put options or learn to use financial futures. Stocks take the escalator up and the elevator down so have exit plans and also have plans to profit from down markets.

For a disciplined retail trader, you have never had it so good and it’s the Wall Street institutions that are now the “dumb money.”

Why synthetic indices should be in your trading toolbox

Synthetic Indices are unique financial indices that mimic real-world market volatility and are available for trading 24/7/365. They are based on a cryptographically secure random number generator audited for fairness by an independent third party. Volatility indices have been trading for over 10 years with a proven track record for reliability and continue to grow in popularity. Deriv offers a transparent and fair platform with a continuous two-way pricing and does not second-guess which side of the trade you are going to take.

Synthetic indices have constant volatility and are free of market and liquidity risks which is often seen in other financial markets.

A good trader like a good plumber will have different tools in their toolbox to tackle different jobs. Synthetic indices have a place in your trading as there are many advantages to trading a synthetic index over a currency pair or traditional financial index such as the FTSE100 or Dow Jones. These advantages include:

  1. Synthetic indices offer high leverage, tight spreads, and 24/7 trading.
  2. They’re not affected by world events.
  3. You’ll know your exact risk at the outset, so no nasty surprises or margin calls.
  4. You can start with a low trading capital.
  5. They’re free from real-world market and liquidity risks.
  6. They’re not subject to manipulation or fixing.
  7. They’re ideal for automated trading with continuous quotes and no gaps.
  8. You have the ability to choose a range of synthetic markets with lower or higher risk reward characteristics.
  9. They’re ideal for technical trading and can be traded using MetaStock MT5 charting software and chart pattern trading.
  10. Synthetic indices are ideal for small and large traders alike with deep liquidity and fast order execution at any time of the day or night
  11. A stable, regulated, and established financial company underwrites them, reducing counterparty risk.
  12. New synthetic indices and products will continue to be offered as Deriv heavily invests in research and development.
