In order to make money on the Forex market you have to buy low and sell high, quite simple. Let’s have a look at the example How much money can you theoretically make by trading currencies? Let’s assume that you have 1,000 US dollars on your trading account. The current exchange rate of Euro versus the US dollar is 1.25. In other words, for 1 euro you get one dollar and 25 cents. You forecast that during the day Euro would rise versus the US dollar. Based on this forecast you buy 800 Euros for your 1,000 dollars. Your forecast is correct! Euro rises from to dollars. Being in profit you decide to close the trade and exchange 800 Euros back to 1,008 dollars. In effect, your profit from this trade is 8 dollars. Not that much, right? You raise a fair question: Would it be possible to increase profits In order to maximize your profit potential you can use leverage. Leverage is a loan Tickmill provides you to trade Forex. The size of the loan can differ but Tickmill provides you with up to 500 times more funds than your initial capital, which also increases your profit potential 500 times. Great, right?, Still, please remember. Increased leverage means not only more profit potential but also more risks! Managing your risks is very important! Let’s have a look at an example how to use leverage of one to five hundred. You have the same 1,000 dollars on your account and you estimate that Euro will rise versus the US dollar therefore you decide to take the biggest possible loan from your broker 499,000 dollars. Now, with the exchange rate of you exchange all your 500,000 dollars to 400,000 euros. At the moment when exchange rate rises to you exchange the 400,000 euros back to 504,000 dollars. As a result, you now have 5,000 dollars on your account after returning the loan to your broker. So your net profit is 4 000 dollars. An incredible result after just one day of trading! In this example we have looked at the scenario when your forecast turns out to be correct. But what would have happened if instead of rising Euro had fallen against the US dollar? In this case your trade would be open until your losses equal your initial deposit, which is 1,000 dollars. At this point your trade will be automatically closed and the broker takes back the loan. Consequently, a case when you can lose broker’s loan is almost impossible. Taking everything into account, you now have seen how leverage can increase your profits, if you make right decisions. At the same time, leverage can also work against you if you make wrong estimations and don’t limit your losses. Let me tell you, why I trust Tickmill: Tickmill likes to see the clients succeed in trading Your funds are safe and segregated Tickmill’s low Forex spreads (or the difference between buy and sell price) increase your profitability You can test your trading skills on global markets with a small initial deposit of $100 You can use leverage of up to 1:500 (one to five hundred) Tickmill allows all trading strategies including scalping, news trading, arbitrage and executes trades in extremely short time. This is why Tickmill is highly respected in Forex community - Americans carry many different forms of insurance. There’s car insurance, home insurance, life insurance, even pet insurance. Most of these insurance policies work well and are fairly priced. But there is one glaring exception health insurance. Only health insurance becomes more complicated and more expensive at the same time. So, the obvious question is: why? To answer this question, we have to start at the beginning. What is insurance? It’s pretty straight-forward You pay a monthly fee which provides financial protection against unforeseen, sometimes catastrophic, events. People buy homeowners insurance, for example, to protect themselves from the financial loss incurred in the event of a fire, a flood or theft. Because millions of people are paying into the insurance pool, the pool has enough money to cover the unlucky person whose house does burn down. And since insurance is meant to share risk, it only stands to reason that higher-risk individuals have to pay more to be insured. Someone who has had two accidents is going to pay more for car insurance than someone who has never had an accident. Why? Because their track record indicates they are more likely to have another accident. But while insurance provides a bulwark against unforeseen loss, it does not protect against routine expenses. Car insurance protects you in the event that you wind up in a car wreck or your vehicle is stolen, but it doesn’t cover routine maintenance like oil changes, replacing brake pads or tire erosion. Why? Because everyone needs routine oil changes, new brake pads, and new tires. So, there is no risk to protect against. Health insurance in America works very differently. Many of us have health insurance plans that aren’t insurance at all. They’re really pre-paid health care plans. They cover routine check-ups, less serious illnesses, and recurring expenses like prescription medications in addition to protecting you from a health disaster. All of this has made healthcare much more expensive and complex than any other form of insurance. That is true whether you get your insurance through your employer, through the government, or if you pay for your own plan. The Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, was passed on the promise that it would fix these issues and bring down healthcare costs. But it has actually made the problem much worse. First, it limited the variety of health insurance plans private companies could offer. It did this by mandating that every plan had to cover the same set of ten health benefits, including preventive care, maternity care, mental health care, and contraception. Second, Obamacare prevented insurers from charging premiums based on the risk they were assuming. A person with a much higher risk of getting sick couldn’t be charged more than a person with a much lower chance. These two aspects of Obamacare – requiring all policies to have certain coverages and not allowing insurance companies to charge more for riskier clients – caused the price of insurance to rise dramatically. In Arizona, for example, the price more than doubled between 2016 and 2017 alone. So, how do we undo this mess? By making health insurance more like, well, insurance. First, stop making people buy plans that include things they won’t use and don’t want. Second, allow health insurers to offer more options at different prices. Do these two things and you’d make health insurance a lot more affordable for a lot more people. And what about people with pre-existing conditions for whom every insurance plan is just too expensive? We do what any compassionate society does: we make sure they get the medical care they need. But we don’t need to upset the whole concept of insurance and make healthcare more expensive for everyone else to do it. Most Americans want to do the responsible thing and insure themselves against catastrophic health care emergencies. But with health insurance costs rising every year, being responsible is becoming more difficult. I’m Lanhee Chen, research fellow at the Hoover Institution, for Prager University
