LONDON, July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
As the euro fell 0.4% against the Australian dollar on Friday 20 July - its lowest level since its inception in 1999 - how do you plan to trade the euro in the coming weeks?
In the following guide, we offer you top tips for trading forex as the euro falls against multiple currencies.
Tip 1: Research the Forex Markets
The first step in any trading strategy is to research the market in which you plan to trade - and all of those that could potentially affect its future share price.
Whilst the fall of 0.4% to AUD1.1875 against the Australian dollar on Friday was significant in the sense that the euro had met levels as low as the time of its inception 13 years ago; it did not come as any surprise to the market.
John Doyle, director of markets at Tempus Consulting stated: "Overall, the euro is falling against anything."
Adding: "Breaking new lows like it has been wouldn't be surprising."
As an investor looking to trade the euro, you would be expecting the euro to fall following ongoing negative news out of the eurozone - and in turn, you would be prepared for such falls, should and when they occur.
Tip 2: Choose a Forex Trading Provider
Deciding which forex trading provider to trade with can be a difficult decision, what with so many available to you.
For many investors, you will be looking for independent reviews by fellow traders to determine which provider offers the best customer experience, usability, trading education and overall service.
Through the reliable reviewcentre.com, the top spread betting provider is City Index with 82 reviews and 81.7% of users recommending them as a brand.
In comparison, IG Index has only 46 reviews with just over half of users recommending them through reviewcentre.com.
