How Retail Traders Maximize Forex Trading Opportunities

SYDNEY, July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The latest City Index client survey shows that forex is the second most traded instrument in terms of trade volume and value.

Trading forex with City Index Australia is generating more interest and popularity among retail traders particularly with the recent gains of the Australian dollar against other currencies.

Aussie Dollar Gains Strength

Kara Ordway, Forex Strategist at City Index Australia said, "The Australian dollar has shown some resilience not only against the US dollar but also against the Euro during the past few months. And this is creating some support for the Aussie."

With the lingering issues in Europe and tentative economic growth in the US, the Aussie dollar may continue to be supported at its current level or slightly higher range.

In turn, this could create more trading opportunities particularly for short-term and active forex traders.

Role of Forex in your Portfolio

Miss Ordway added, "As equity markets around the world continue to suffer due to negative sentiment, we are seeing traders getting more active in forex trading,"

"There is definitely room for forex trading in a retail trader's portfolio and I think more people are realising that and acting on it now."
