Cryptocurrency Trading Contest Offers $1.8 Million Prize Fund

Gold and precious metals continue to do well, but that only underscores the state of other assets, as investors seek to move funds into a traditional safe haven. Forex markets in the pound and euro continue to be impacted by the spiraling cases of coronavirus in the US, which also appears to be causing deepening uncertainty among stock investors. 

Bybit Launches World Series of Trading

Amid all the doom and gloom, cryptocurrency traders have a gleam of sunshine on the horizon. Cryptocurrency derivatives exchange Bybit is running a trading contest this summer with a mega prize pool of 200 Bitcoin. At the current Bitcoin price of around $9,000, that represents a fund worth a cool $1.8 million. The best part? It’s open to absolutely anyone who wants to attend. 

Bybit is launching the event as the first in a bi-annual series of trading contests known as the “World Series of Trading.” Perhaps the name is a giveaway, but the company is aiming to capture a global audience of traders from across the globe. The contest comes on the back of a previously successful trading battle called “BTC Brawl” that Bybit ran in 2019. In that event, traders competed for the chance to win a share of a prize fund worth 100 BTC. This time, Bybit is doubling up the prize fund, taking a bet that raising the stakes will draw in an even bigger global group of traders. 

Because the prizes are allocated based on the percentage of profit and loss, everyone is competing on an even playing field. Along with institutional and retail traders, Bybit is also anticipating that some of the biggest names in cryptocurrency trading will join in to compete. 

Participation in the WSOT brings other benefits. The company is also offering those who register the opportunity to trade with a 20% discount on fees. There’s also the chance to earn up to $9,400 in bonuses payable in the Tether stablecoin, pegged to the US dollar. 

What is Bybit? 

For the benefit of the uninitiated, Bybit is an exchange established in 2018 and based in Singapore. Like rival exchange BitMEX, it’s flagship product is its BTCUSD perpetual swap contract, allowing traders to profit from movements in Bitcoin against the dollar but without taking custody of the underlying. The company recently launched a Tether-backed contract, meaning traders can gain exposure to Bitcoin’s volatility while funding their accounts and taking profits in the USD-pegged stablecoin. 

Unlike its rival, Bybit tends to be more user-friendly than BitMEX. Traders can deposit fiat on the platform, and take advantage of the company’s mutual insurance feature as a hedge against losses. Perhaps most importantly, the exchange’s matching engine can support 100,000 transactions per second. 

Bitcoin’s volatility offers traders plenty of opportunities to profit amid wider market uncertainty. Furthermore, Bitcoin is widely considered to be an uncorrelated asset, meaning it’s likely to escape the inevitable coronavirus carnage relatively unscathed. 

The recent third “halving” event in May puts additional pressure on supply by halving the rewards paid to Bitcoin miners. In the two previous halvings, the price of Bitcoin went on to achieve new highs in the next twelve months, leading to much speculation that Bitcoin could be set for a new bull run. Therefore, for traders jaded by the current state of the markets, Bitcoin could provide new opportunities – for profits as well as trading contest prizes. 

The World Series of Trading is open for pre-registration now, until July 30. The event itself runs from August 10 to August 31. 

Top 10 Trading Tips for Beginners

There are many trading tips that can help you throughout your trading journey. Here are top 10 trading tips for beginners:

  1. Learn Basics First

If you are a beginner, you have to learn many important aspects of the market. The basics include;

  • What are the best trading hours?
  • What makes the financial market fluctuate?
  • What types of orders are there?
  • What are the terms used in trading?

The more you know about the market, the healthier your risk profile is. Don’t jump right into the market with no background knowledge of trading.

  1. Planning

“Good fortunes is what happens when opportunity meets with planning.” – Thomas Edison

Every trader should have trading plan with a solid structure that can guide them through day-to-day fluctuations in the market. With a good plan, you can mitigate your loss and stay calm if the trade gets volatile. The plan should include profit goals, methodology, as well as risk tolerance strategies. Nearly every mistake traders make is caused either by not having a plan or not following it.

  1. Manage Risk

“Rule No. 1: Never lose money. Rule No. 2: Never forget rule number one.” – Warren Buffett

Taking a loss is a part of trading. Never risk too much on any single trade and always use stops. A stop-loss order helps you reduce your losses as it enables you to select price at which your position will be automatically stopped. However, you have to place your stop-loss orders at a ‘safe’ distance from your entry price. If you place them too close you will be stopped out before the market has a chance to move in your favor.

  1. Don’t underestimate the market

Every good trader handles a loss. The difference between a successful trading and a failed one is understanding how to handle losses. Whether we choose to accept it or not, losses are integral parts of trading. Always be prepared for market volatility and if the market is not moving your direction, exit any positions to cut loss. This will help traders reduce their losses.

  1. Diversify Your Investments

It is important to remember that some assets affect one another, so it is best to diversify between different asset classes (such as stock, commodities, indices etc.), and even within the asset class itself. The logic behind diversity is as old as saying “Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket,” and keeping your investments diverse will also help you manage your losses in case one stock brings a loss.

  1. Be patient and disciplined

Trading consistently requires patience, which unfortunately most humans lack, particularly when it comes to money. Attempting to double your account every week is chancy, and doing so increases risk exponentially. Making sustained profits in trading takes time and effort, and there are no shortcuts to becoming a good trader. So once you have your trading plan ready, find the patience to stick to your rules. Patience is not about doing nothing; it’s about doing the right thing at the right time.

  1. Control your emotions

“If you cannot control your emotions, you cannot control your money.”- Warren Buffett Sometimes, even experienced professionals with advanced tools are not able to predict market movements, and in such a situation emotions can drive you to take negative actions. Make sure you do not let this happen – without too much emotions involved, you will be making adequate choices. Take your time to understand each one of them.

  1. Have entry and exit rules

There is no such thing as the ‘perfect entry and exit’. Stick only to the entry and exit parameters of your plan. If you start thinking ‘maybe I should see if this works’, think again. Maintain discipline and your bottom line will thank you for it. The exit strategy will be based not just on your goals but also on the market trends; this will minimize your losses while you can collect your gains once the specified target is met.

  1. Take Partial profits

If you gain and want to trade further, it’s time to take partial profit. Try to book at least 50% profit at your desired level of gain. At the further level, you may book another 25% and later book the rest of the profit. This decreases your risk and at the same time gives you significantly increased profits.

  1. Be Knowledgeable of Latest News

The world changes quickly and new events can cause explosive fluctuations in the market. In order to succeed in trading, you need to be up to date with the latest events affecting markets, the latest stock market situation and other things concerning the market. This helps you for example, when a notable event appears on the economic calendar. You may be careful to consider booking, or at least protect profits, and any products you feel might be affected. For short-term traders, it’s important to keep an eye on the markets and any real-time news developments.

Activtrades Posts Record First Half Results as New Accounts Boom

The London-based brokerage has benefited from the volatile trading environment this year with the brokerage registering record revenue and profit for H1 2020.

Revenue rose to £30.9 million in the first half of 2020, almost four times higher than the £8 million registered in the same period last year and already well above the £20.6 million it recorded for the whole of 2019.

 

This year is poised to be the most profitable ever for the company, with first half profit at £19.2 million.

“We are very pleased with this performance. We were expecting a strong year but this goes beyond our estimates and bodes well for future growth,” said ActivTrades CEO Alex Pusco. “The return of volatility globally has helped and we have also seen a strong increase in clients in various regions. At this turbulent time for markets, ActivTrades has benefited from its reputation as one of the most efficient and trusted online brokerages”.

ActivTrades registered an impressive 72% increase in the number of new client accounts in the second quarter of 2020 compared with the same period a year ago, with many of the new clients adopting the new web-based ActivTrader platform.

“These impressive numbers also highlight the success of our new platform ActivTrader, which is easy to use, very innovative and offers fast order execution. Clients are certainly rewarding us for this upgrade,” said Pusco.

ActivTrades also gained from the expansion of its product range.

The brokerage has been adding multiple new products to its offering this year. Among them are CFDs on more than 100 new shares around the world and two innovative CFDs tied to the spot price of WTI and Brent. Unlike traditional CFDs on oil futures, these contracts do not need rolling over to future dates as they do not have an expiry date.

The fast and targeted response to the unexpected events allowed ActivTrades to strengthen its position in the market.

“We developed these products extremely quickly after the unforeseen dive in prices of near-expiry oil futures this spring,” explained Alex Pusco “We wanted to offer our clients an alternative solution to be able to gain exposure to oil prices without having to worry about rolling over their positions.”

With CFDs there are no commissions with the only cost being the bid/ask spread applied by the broker. A swap rate may apply to keep positions open overnight while there are no additional costs for intraday trading.

ActivTrades is a multiple award-winning brokerage and has been in operation since 2001. Besides its headquarters in London, it has offices in Milan, Nassau and Sofia.

Skilling Launches MT4

Founded in 2016, Skilling introduced their proprietary trading platform in 2018, and in January 2020 they announced the launch of the industry’s first seamless integration with Spotware’s cTrader. With their acquisition of FSA Seychelles license earlier this year, Skilling can now offer MT4 to its current and new clients on a global level.

“We have worked tirelessly to launch the renown MetaTrader 4, also known as MT4, the electronic trading platform widely used by online retail foreign exchange traders. Today, we are proud to finally be able to offer our advanced traders a highly customizable platform with many advanced tools and functions, such as MQL4 scripting language and an advanced charting package”, André Lavold, CEO of Skilling Group, said. “Combined with our competitive and transparent pricing, and multilingual and proactive support team, we are ready, more than ever, to offer an excellent trading experience to traders on all levels internationally.”

MetaTrader 4, also known as MT4, is an electronic trading platform widely used by online retail foreign exchange traders. It was developed by MetaQuotes Software and released in 2005.


69% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

BDSwiss Expands its Global Presence by Acquiring FSA Seychelles License

BDSwiss Group has been operating under different entities regulated by internationally accredited financial supervisory authorities since 2013, including the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), the Financial Services Commission (FSC – Mauritius) and most recently, the Financial Services Authority (FSA – Seychelles) under its newly-registered entity BDS Ltd.

Reflecting the Group’s commitment to continue on its current trajectory of expansion and growth, the decision to acquire an FSA license comes in an effort to ensure even broader regulatory supervision in new markets. Providing a transparent trading environment and even greater security to clients across different markets including South-East Asia, South Africa, Middle East and Latin America; BDSwiss FSA entity will enable clients from these regions to access world-class trading services via its dedicated official domain http://global.bdswiss.com/ – which is already live and fully operational.

 

About the FSA

Following a specific set of regulatory guidelines that are developed under the Financial Services Authority Act of 2013, the FSA is responsible for the licensing, supervision, and development of the non-bank financial services industry of Seychelles.

ActivTrades’ Revenue Set to Climb to Record High in H1 2020

With only a few days to go to the end of the second quarter, the company has recorded £30 million in revenue for the first half of 2020, more than trebling the £8 million registered in the same period last year and already well above the £20.6 million it recorded for the whole of 2019.

This year is poised to be the most profitable ever for the brokerage, with first half profit expected to be a record £18 million.

“We are very pleased with this performance. We were expecting a strong year but this goes beyond our estimates and bodes well for future growth,” said ActivTrades CEO Alex Pusco. “The return of volatility globally has helped and we have also seen a strong increase in clients in various regions. At this turbulent time for markets, ActivTrades has benefitted from its reputation as one of the most efficient and trusted online brokerages”.

ActivTrades’ bright performance came amidst the Covid-19 crisis, which has seen trading volumes climb and sparked a surge in volatility on markets, lifting both top and bottom lines for the brokerage.

The company also gained from the expansion of its product range and the addition of new clients, many of whom are adopting the new web-based ActivTrader platform.

“These impressive numbers also highlight the success of our new platform ActivTrader, which is easy to use, very innovative and offers fast order execution. Clients are certainly rewarding us for this upgrade,” said Pusco.

ActivTrades has been adding multiple new products to its offering this year. Among them are CFDs on more than 100 new shares around the world and two innovative CFDs tied to the spot price of WTI and Brent.

Microsoft Stocks Hit the $200 Mark for the First Time

Microsoft bravely defied the storms of the present economic crises as markets plummeted starting mid-March. COVID-19 had minimal impact on the company’s revenue, citing that its $35 billion revenue for Q3 FY20 ending on March 31 was more than what analysts estimated ($33.6 billion). Since the beginning of the year, Microsoft stocks (MSFT.US) climbed by 25% amid the struggling global markets. It is up by 133% since January 2018.

The company reports a surge in usage in Microsoft 365 including Azure, Teams, Windows Virtual Desktop, advanced security solutions, and Power Platform. Xbox Live has also seen unprecedented demand with a 50% increase in players in multiplayer gaming.

Microsoft Teams, formerly Skype for Business, is a leading hub for digital team collaboration, reporting over 75 million active users in April and serving 200 million daily meeting participants. Microsoft Azure grew 59% and Office 365 is up by 25% from last year’s quarter. The company’s earnings per share jumped 23% year over year.

HYCM adds 50 Cryptocurrency CFDs & Drastically Reduces Spreads

Limassol, CY – 23 June 2020

The broker now offers pairs with Bitcoin, Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin Gold, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin, Ripple, as well as EOS, Stellar, TRON, Dash, IOTA, Monero, Zcash and NEO, against fiat currencies, USD, EUR, GBP and JPY, thus providing traders with a rich choice for trading.

The new crypto products are available for trading on HYCM’s fixed, classic, and raw accounts on its MT5 platform with 1:20 leverage and significantly low spreads.

Giles Coghlan, HYCM’s Chief Currency Analyst, commented on the market situation in the crypto space:

“In the midst of our global COVID-19 crisis, central banks around the world are both cutting interest rates and increasing bond-buying programmes. Furthermore, governments around the world have pledged more than $8 trillion in stimulus measures in order to cushion the financial impact of the coronavirus. This all means that nations are now running the risk of inflation levels devaluing investors’ cash in the bank.

This is all pushing renewed interest in areas like the cryptocurrency space. Recently high profile investor Paul Tudor Jones advocated the crypto space in the current environment saying “Bitcoin reminds me of gold when I first got into the business in 1976”.

Understanding Forex Cashback

People can trade Forex anytime, straight from home. To start trading, you need to find a reliable broker, that will provide you with a trading account, a trading platform and of course, access to the global financial market. For its services, the broker charges certain fees. This can be a commission, spread, or conversion fee.

There are many articles on the web telling you how to pick a broker and which factors to consider. Favorable trading conditions are listed as one of the most important criteria. Among these trading conditions, you may come across the so-called “Cashback program”.

The cashback service is a great perk offered by some obrokers, like AMarkets online broker. To put it simple, the term “cashback” in the Forex industry means getting part of the broker’s commission (spread) back to your trading account. By joining the AMarkets Cashback program and receiving part of the spread back, you will pay less commission, thus generating higher profits. Besides, you get cashback for all of you trades, regardless of the trading outcome. How cool is that?

But why would the broker give back part of its well-earned money? – you may wonder. Don’t worry, there’s nothing fishy about it at all. The cashback program is beneficial not only for a trader, who receives part of the spread back, thus getting more funds to trade with. It’s beneficial for the broker too since such offers increase customer loyalty and help the broker attract more active traders. The more traders – the more business for the broker.

Now that we’ve explained what cashback is, we’ve saved the best for last. While some brokers do provide cashback service, only AMarkets offers Increased cashback as an added cherry on top. Check out the rates you get with this limited-time offer and see for yourself:

  • 1st level – $ 3 per lot
  • 2nd level – $ 10 per lot (instead of $8)
  • 3rd level – $ 12 (instead of $10)
  • 4th level – $ 14 (instead of $12)
  • 5th level – $ 16 (instead of $14)

Make sure to familiarise yourself with the main terms and conditions of AMarkets’ Increased Cashback Offer:

  • The offer is available from 15.06.20 to 30.06.20.
  • Increased cashback will be available until 31.07.20.
  • Only Standard and Fixed dollar accounts on MT4 platform can join the cashback program.
  • Cashback is calculated based on the trading activity in Forex instruments and Metals.
  • To advance to the next level and receive more cashback, you need to achieve a required trading volume within a trading month.
  • The minimum position holding time for each trade shouldn’t be less than 3 minutes. The price change of a trade should be at least 10 pips.
  • Cashback is credited to a trading account connected to the program in the form of a trading bonus, for closed transactions daily.
  • If you withdraw funds from the trading account connected to the program or fail to reach the turnover required to move to the next level, your account will be returned to the first level of the program.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity. Trade with increased cashback from AMarkets, unlock new levels of cashback, return more money to open new trades and pay less commissions!

Warner Music received the total of $1,9 billion during its IPO. Moreover, market capitalization of the company increased to $12,75 billion. The growth has exceeded analysts’ forecasts, who expected the company value of roughly $6 billion.

The company has been listed on New York Stock Exchange until 2011, when it was purchased for roughly $3,3 billion by Access Industries, a company belonging to a billionaire Leonard Blavatnik. Access Industries has been a majority owner since. Based on information provided by Tradingview.com, back then the share value was roughly $8 per share.

The New York based company has similarly to other recording companies made a progress and its position has significantly improved especially due to development of subscription music streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer, Tidal, Google Play Music or Apple Music. Recording companies managed to compensate the loss caused by music piracy and stabilized its market position.

Warner Music is currently world’s third largest recording company based on market share and cooperates with celebrities such as Madonna, Ed Sheeran or James Taylor. The two larger studios are Universal Music Group and Sony Music Entertainment.

During last fiscal year, which finished in September 2019, the company reported yields of $4,48 billion and profit of $258 billion.

The Price of Precious Metals Drew Significantly During Last Year

Within last year, gold price increased in more than one third. Golden Brokers has observed other precious metals to confirm that these metals also serve as safe havens during times when huge amount of investment is being pumped into economies and national currencies might be undervalued in the future.

Golden Brokers have found out that in terms of performance more experienced investors benefit from diversifying their portfolios with more precious metals.

Price growth during last year*

Gold + 36 %
Silver + 18 %
Palladium + 52 %
Platinum + 3,6 %
Rhodium + 190 %

* The comparison is based on values from 17th May 2020

Gold

Even though the beginning of the year pushed gold prices down due to low demand on China’s markets, where coronavirus pandemic began, the metal managed to break the level of 1700 USD per ounce, and is currently growing even higher. In addition, gold could soon reach the value of 1800 USD per ounce. Performance of the instrument grew in 36% only during last year, and even higher growth is expected. Some predict that gold could reach 3000 USD per ounce till the end of 2020. Considering the current situation on capital markets, global economic slowdown, and escalating U.S.-China trade tensions, there’s chances that gold price could grow even faster than expected in the beginning of January.

However, purchasing ETF currently seems more profitable. Purchasing physical gold from intermediaries has also became popular due to supply disruptions caused by the pandemic, and prices of gold bricks became more expensive, similarly to purchase of face masks after the coronavirus pandemic outbreak. When an ounce of gold was traded around 1735 USD on 17th May 2020, purchase of one physical ounce of gold was roughly 1735 EUR, what represents roughly 1895 USD per ounce, depending on a producer and an intermediary. We can see similar progress with physical gold coins and silver.

Silver

Silver represents the second most popular precious metal, which is perceived as a cheaper alternative to gold. During last year, its value grew in 18% to 17 USD per ounce, even despite March drop when prices were around 11 USD per ounce. About a year ago, silver was significantly undervalued against gold based on Gold to Silver ratio – 1 ounce of gold was worth 85 ounces of silver.

Fall in silver price compared to its value is currently ever deeper – 100 ounces. For a comparison, 50 ounces of gold were equal to 1 ounce of gold in the past. Moreover, silver is one of the best metals with thermal conductivity, and is used in many sectors, such as healthcare, industry, or furniture industry, where it’s used in mirrors. And its supplies keep dropping. It is probable, that larger investors‘ profits from silver are yet to come.

Palladium

Palladium price dropped in 52% in terms of its annual performance. While the metal was traded around 1300 USD per ounce last year, on 17th May 2020 the value was roughly 2000 USD per ounce. On Monday trading, palladium price was even 2025 USD per ounce. Nevertheless, neither palladium price remained resistant against coronavirus pandemic impact.

The metal was traded slightly under 2860 USD per ounce in the end of February. Price growth before the coronavirus pandemic outbreak was supported by rapidly growing demand, which exceeded offer of the metal. Palladium is used to control the degree of pollution in catalytic converters of petrol car engines, due to replacing them with diesel engines. This factor could affect palladium price growth during global economy restart once anti-pandemic restrictions are eased.

Platinum

Even though last year was quite favorable for evaluation of precious metals, platinum was the least successful. During a year, the metal added only 3.6%, when its value rose from 800 USD per ounce in the end of May 2019 to its current value of 830 USD per ounce. Platinum price was above 1000 USD in January 2020, yet it slumped due to impact of coronavirus pandemic. Gold to Platinum Ratio index shows that platinum appears in the most undervalued levels against gold. It means that 1 ounce of gold was worth roughly 0,9 ounces of platinum in 2008, yet currently the value of the yellow metal equals to 2,3 ounces of platinum. A more significant growth of platinum price may come.

Rhodium

Rhodium may serve as an interesting alternative to diversify portfolios of more experienced investors. Rhodium, one of the most precious metals, is similarly to palladium used in automotive sector, but also in other industries. During the last crisis, rhodium surpassed the level of 10,000 USD and even grew to 13,800 USD per ounce in the first quarter of 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has not only stopped economic activities, but also decreased demand for metals. In past two months, the pandemic pushed rhodium price even deeper.

In the beginning of this week, MetalsDaily reported that rhodium was traded around 7,724 EUR per ounce (roughly 8,700 USD per ounce), but as many countries ease their anti-pandemic measures, the price could grow. In terms of performance, rhodium was worth 3,000 USD in the end of May 2019, which represents 190% evaluation. Traders, who decided to invest in these assets will not appear in loss. Despite the price growth, it’s important to bear in mind that rhodium price is significantly volatile and investing in this metal is very risky.

Every investor must consider which instrument to invest in. However, it seems that in case of purchase of precious metals, buyers were rather successful with investing into the above mentioned metals during last year.
