Forex and currency pairs

Forex is the world’s largest financial market in terms of trading volume, with as much as $5 trillion traded daily. It is the market for currencies such as the Euro, the Dollar, and the Yen. One of the most popular forex trading features is the ability to trade 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.  

Another feature of Forex is that currencies are always quoted in pairs, expressing the value of the first currency (the base currency) in the second currency (the quote currency). For example, the EUR/USD pair price expresses the value of one Euro in Dollars. Among the most traded currency pairs in Forex, besides EUR/USD, which accounts for the majority of trading, are GBP/USD (Pound Sterling to US Dollars), USD/JPY (US Dollar to Japanese Yen), or AUD/USD (Australian Dollar to US Dollar). These, and a long list of other pairs can be traded easily on our Traze platform.

Finally, Forex is also a popular market among day-traders because of the high leverage allowed, allowing significant gains to be made quickly on small changes in the currency market. 

Stock market and shares

Stocks are undoubtedly the most widely held assets by individual investors and independent traders. A stock represents a fraction of a company’s capital. If you own shares, you own part of the company. Shares and stocks allow you to cash in on gains if the value of the company, and therefore its shares, rises. Or, conversely, to suffer losses if the company performs poorly and its stock suffers. Some stocks also provide regular income independent of the stock price, with dividends, the share of distributed profits that goes to each shareholder. 

Some stocks are riskier than others. For example, technology stocks are generally considered riskier than utility stocks. But they also offer much more attractive earnings potential. Thus, it is possible to find suitable shares regardless of your risk profile, and all investors can put together portfolios that exactly match their expectations and financial goals. It is also possible to diversify your investments by choosing stocks with different profiles that will not be influenced in the same way by events and thus reduce your risk.

To choose which stocks to buy, traders and investors rely on various parameters, such as quarterly company results, company news, and the general economic climate. But it is also possible to look at other parameters, such as valuation ratios or analysts’ forecasts, which provide official 12-month targets for all stocks in the world market. With Traze, you can trade AMZN, BABA, AAPL, and TSLA shares, amongst a wide array of other choices.

Stock market Indexes

Stock market indices are baskets of stocks representative of a particular geographic area and/or sector. For example, the S&P 500 is made up of 500 of the largest US companies. The Euro Stoxx 600 brings together 600 of the largest European companies. Stock market indices were created to determine the general trend of the markets, but it is also possible to trade indices via futures contracts or CFDs.

The performance of an index, which is tracked daily, indicates the average performance of the stocks included in the basket, based on a weighted average in which the most capitalized or most quoted securities also have more weight.

Therefore, investing in Indices is a way to invest in the stock market in a very diversified way in a single trade without the need to research several stocks. Historical data also shows that investing in stock indices over 10 years is almost always profitable. For short-term traders, stock indices offer enough daily volatility to take advantage of exciting trading opportunities each day while reducing the risk of a sudden sharp drop in the face of an unexpected event, thanks to diversification.
NAS100, S&P500, HK50 and 14 other indices are up for trading for everyone through Traze.

Conversely, oil will react negatively to economic uncertainty but will benefit from strong economic activity, which boosts demand. Therefore, it is possible to find suitable commodities regardless of your expectations and investment objectives.

Through Traze, you can trade commodities like gold, copper, and natural gas through CFDs, that you can get sizeable returns from a small starting sum through leverage.

Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies are digital currencies (or assets) that operate independently of banks and governments, based on cryptographic technologies and blockchain and distributed ledger principles. 

Cryptocurrencies can be traded like any other asset or currency. Many different crypto-currencies are available, with no less than 10,000 different tokens on the market, but the oldest of them all, Bitcoin, alone accounts for over 50% of the entire cryptocurrency market in terms of capitalization. In second place comes Ethereum, which operates very differently from Bitcoin and serves as the architecture for many other cryptocurrencies.

Each cryptocurrency has its own characteristics and applications. For example, some cryptos serve as currency in the metaverse. Others aim to serve as alternatives to traditional methods of international money transfer. So, while the crypto market is considered risky due to its volatility and young age, it is still possible to find suitable options regardless of your investor profile.
With a Traze account, you can trade 3 different cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin.
