Brokerage w/ 4am-8pm trading + otc/futures/forex/options/etc

I know that brokerage questions get asked alot and I apologize if this has been answered before, but is TWS the only brokerage that offers this? TWS is way more robust of a platform than I need right now and their fees also seem pretty robust, so Id like to know if there are any other options before I switch.
A UI that doesn't look like it's straight out of the 90's would be a cool plus, but I think thats asking too much!
Thanks for any recommendations.

Interactive Brokers: Brexit account migration = insurance drops from 500k USD to 20k EUR

Is anyone else concerned about this? They are migrating from UK to Hungary, Ireland or Luxembourg: https://ibkr.info/node/3515
Main reason I used IB was safety/regulation. After this migration we lose FSCS & SIPC protection, compensation will be the same as e.g. DeGiro or Trading 212 (20k EUR), for me there is no point to stay on IB any longer as I much prefer Trading 212's modern platform. What are your thoughts?
In 2018 IBKR established Interactive Brokers Luxembourg SARL (“IBLUX”) which received regulatory authorization in November 2019. In addition, we are in the process of creating two additional brokers based in the European Union: Interactive Brokers Ireland Limited (“IBIE”) and Interactive Brokers Central Europe Befektetési ZRt (“IBCE”).
We expect the majority of the clients based in Western Europe will be migrated to IBIE, those in Central and Eastern Europe to IBCE and a select group of clients to IBLUX.
Currently, provided they meet eligibility requirements, IBUK clients may be protected in relation to investment services under the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“UK FSCS”) at an amount of up to £50,000. As IBUK clients are carried by our US broker, IBL, the securities segment of their account may be eligible for insurance by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”) at an amount of up to USD 500,000.
Under the EU Brokers IBLUX, IBIE and IBCE eligible claimants may be entitled to claim compensation up to a maximum of EUR 20,000.
Later update - currently for IBUK, the protection amount depends on what you are trading with:
As a side note, in their article they state £50,000 FSCS protection, but that's just outdated. It's been increased to £85,000 since April 2019 - fscs.org.uk/media/press/2019/aphigher-protection-limits.

APIs offered by brokers and data platforms

I’ve been looking for a broker that has an API for index futures and ideally also futures options. I’m looking to use the API to build a customized view of my risk based on balances, positions, and market conditions.
Searching the algotrading sub I found many API-related posts, but then when I actually read them and their comments, I found they’re often lacking in real substance. It turns out many brokers or data services that have APIs don’t actually support index futures and options via the API, and instead they focus on equities, forex, or cypto. So here’s the list of what I’ve found so far. This isn’t a review of these brokers or APIs and note that I have a specific application in mind (index futures and futures options). Perhaps you’re looking for an API for equities, or you just want data and not a broker, in which case there may be a few options. Also, I’m based in the US so I didn’t really look for brokers or platforms outside the US.
If you have experience with these APIs, please chime in with your thoughts. Also, I may have missed some brokers or platforms. If I did or if you see anything that needs correction please let me know.

Currency Futures (Canadian dollar D6) - How do I go about hedging by Exposure to USD

Hi there,
My base currency is Canadian and I hold some USD exposure right now due to investments. I am new to using Interactive Brokers and futures trading.
To my understanding it is possible to mantain a hedge using the cash-settled large and mini Currency Futures Contract and occasionally adjust depending on your USD exposure.
https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/fx/g10/canadian-dollar.html
Per https://www.retailinvestor.org/hedge.html#risk
"It is too expensive to hedge." The cost to buy a $100,000 futures contract good for a year, is about $5. Pittance. Yes you must provide collateral but that is not a cost. You will also find that buried somewhere in whatever method you chose, is a cost/benefit equal to the difference in interest rates between the countries. Since Canada and US rates are so close you can cancel out any cost by using limit orders that let normal market volatility make up the difference.
The fund managers who say hedging is expensive are referring to using options. This method IS expensive. Options are a one-sided bet on the direction of FX, expiring within a specific time span. They are not hedges.
The cash funding of open futures contracts come from the daily settlements. If your position gains $1,000 in value one day, there will be $1,000 put into your account. More importantly, if your position loses $1,000, it will be taken from your account. If there is not sufficient cash your broker will consider it borrowed and charge you interest. You must realize that because this is a hedge, you are not 'losing' that cash. For every dollar you might lose in the futures account, the offsetting investment in the foreign security will have gained the same amount. Agreed, you cannot liquidate that cash daily, but the value is there."

1) Anybody have any experience in this in how to consider which month of futures contract to purchase, (near month or 1 year from now if I want one year of) I believe futures contract automatically roll-forward to the next month.
The Price Curve seems to curve down, and is in some sort of backwardation? So farther away in time cost more due to priced in uncertainty - and also more thinly traded?
2) Collateral is required so I assume is some sort of Margin that is required to maintain the contract,
3) What are the calculations to determine how much to hedge out. Say I have $100k USD?
Is it just Looking at say $100k USD x the Future Price Rate (of CAD/USD) or the current Spot Forex Exchange Rate?
I.e. $100k USD / 0.74500s (Aug '20) = $134k CAD ~
So 1 $100k CAD Contract and 3-4 $10k CAD mini contracts?
4) Any resources to learn about this?

Thanks in advance

Looking for safe and inexpensive solution for holding/exchanging NOK/EUR/USD

I'm looking for:
Any ideas?
Some background in case you're wondering:
I'm a self-employed IT consultant and I'm currently working for a Norwegian customer via an agency in Estonia. I'm originally from Germany, but now traveling full-time.
Usually, my client (the agency) has simply paid me in EUR into my German bank account because it was easier, but now that NOK has devalued so much and I don't need the money immediately, I'd prefer to be paid in NOK. So that I can store/invest it and maybe exchange it to EUUSD some time in the future when the exchange rate is better.
However, I don't really trust German banks because of the Euro crisis and I'd prefer to have my money elsewhere. I actually also have a Norwegian bank account from many years ago when I used to work there, but I'd prefer not to use that either as I'd like to avoid issues with the Norwegian tax office ("Why is there so much of our currency in your account when you don't live or work in Norway?!").
I've thought about Swissquote, which seems to offer a multi-currency account, as well as the option to invest in ETFs/stocks. But they seem to have high fees.
Interactive Brokers is supposed to be very cheap, and they allegedly have even better asset protection. But their user interface is supposed to be difficult to use for beginners? And I guess they also don't have individual IBAN account numbers?
Saxo Bank looks very nice, but it seems a bit more expensive, too? On the plus side, they seem to support funding the account with European credit cards without a fee.
According to https://brokerchooser.com/compare-brokerage , for example Lynx is even cheaper than Interactive Brokers when it comes to forex.
Revolut is great for cheap currency exchange (I use it all the time), but they have terrible support (they once froze all my money for over a week and you can only communicate with them through their app's chat feature) and I don't really trust them as they don't have a banking license yet.
In case it matters, I have a US ITIN (taxpayer ID/"SSN" for non-residents) and credit score, and a Norwegian "D number" (basically the Norwegian equivalent of an ITIN), in addition to a German passport etc.

~50 year old Chinese immigrant mother doesn't think she has any employment options in America - please help

Some context for my mother's situation - after getting a degree in China, she immigrated to the US and was a housewife for about 18 years, during which she basically didn't work at all. Now, in the past seven years to now, she's tried to do stocks but just ended up losing a lot of money. She's recently divorced my father, and had a little over a few thousand dollars to worth with, but she keeps doing stocks and losing money so I'm not sure how long that will last. I've asked her how much she has left, but she refuses to tell me. I've incessantly tried to convince her to stop and find another job, but she's lost hope in her ability to find work in America given her situation, despite what I try to say.
Are there any viable career options for a 50 year old woman who speaks somewhat broken English (she can hold a conversation fine, but she clearly lacks some vocabulary for more complex ideas) and doesn't have any recent job experience? She's recently gotten a life insurance license. She's also shown interest in becoming a pharmacy technician because I've recently become licensed. However, due to her language barrier, lack of job experience, and age, she's ultimately come to give up hope in these ideas.
I'm seriously worried about her deteriorating mental state. She refuses to give up doing stocks because she thinks she has the ability to eventually make money through them, but won't listen to any other ideas because she genuinely believes any job requiring human interaction in the United States is impossible due to her situational barriers.
Any ideas on potential jobs that could potentially coerce her out of her really worrying state of draining money and emotional health to stocks would be greatly appreciated. I'm a 19 year old college student, so I don't know much about job searching or career options, especially for someone in a situation like my mother's.
EDIT: I was not expecting so many people to be kind enough to give their feedback and support - I was expecting at most 20-30 comments, but this is overwhelming. I appreciate and have read every single comment and will continue to do so, thank you guys so much!
Because some have asked questions - We live in California in a place with a decent Chinese population. Her degree is a Bachelor's in Biochemistry, although she says she doesn't remember anything because it has been so long. Her insurance license is in Property-Broker and Casualty broker, and Life, Accident, and Health.
Also some clarification for the stocks because some people been talking about it - She tells me she has worked for some time at a Forex Futures company after passing a trading license test but is now an independent day-trader(Sorry if my jargon is poor, I don't know anything about stocks). This trading license also plays a part in why she's so afraid to step away from stocks despite losing money, she feels like it's a symbol of her potential. Although this post is kind of old now, if anyone here is knowledgeable about stocks, I would greatly appreciate informed input about whether or not and why this is or is not a sustainable source of income.

Introduction to investing as a U.S. citizen residing in Japan

[meta: I ask for help in making sure this information is accurate and correct. Please contribute as you see fit!]
WARNING!! I am not a lawyer, accountant, or broker, nor do I have any experience or training in any of those fields. ALWAYS confirm with a professional before taking any advice you read on the internet.
Foreward
If you're old enough to pay taxes, you should start investing. The earlier, the better.
Here’s another example to illustrate the enormous benefit of getting an early start. At age 25, Eric Early invests $4,000 per year in a Roth IRA for 10 years and stops investing. His total investment is $40,000. Larry Lately makes yearly deposits of $4,000 in his Roth IRA starting at age 35 for 30 years. His total investment is $120,000. Assuming both portfolios earn an 8 percent average annual return, at age 65, Eric’s IRA will be worth $629,741, but Larry’s IRA will be worth only $489,383. By starting 10 years earlier and making one third of the investment, Eric ends up with 29 percent more.
- quote from "The Boglehead's Guide to Investing"
Target audience
This is an introduction for U.S. citizens with residency in Japan who want to do long-term investing in U.S. equity (stocks, bonds, etc.).
Disclaimer
This advice may not be accurate for citizens of countries other than the U.S. or for those U.S. citizens living in Japan who work for the military or are only temporarily living and working in Japan as affiliated with a U.S. company. This is also not advice for ForEx or day traders looking to make money. Nor is it advice for what to invest in. This is also not advice for investing in the Japanese stock market.
This is just one way to invest in U.S. equity from Japan. There are other ways.
Assumptions
  • You're a U.S. citizen
  • Your income is in JPY
  • You want to invest in U.S. equity (stock market, bond market, etc)
  • You have basic knowledge about taxes and tax-related terms
  • You have at least $10,000 USD to invest (or $3,000 USD if age 25 or younger)
Background
I am an ordinary guy living in Japan. I have disposable income and, rather than pour all of it into my local izakaya and Philipino hookers (who hang out in front of Mister Donut at night and ask if I "want the massage?" (just kidding, really!)), I wanted to invest in my future by saving for retirement. I'm an early 30's-year-old guy and spent about a month reading up on investing and then set off trying to invest as a resident of Japan.
My Story
I moved to Japan 3 years ago after working in the U.S. I have an IRA leftover from my time in the U.S., but never contributed to it since moving to Japan (thankfully - find out why in a bit). I recently saw a post from /personalfinance (seriously, go read information in that sub if you want to have more money upon retirement or just get out of debt!) and decided to read the book "The Boglehead's Guide to Investing" based on recommendations there. After that, I started looking into my options for investing from Japan.
Before I left the U.S. for Japan, I rolled over my 401k into an IRA using Vanguard (arguably the best broker available for U.S. citizens). Since moving to Japan, I had not contributed anything to my IRA. So, the first thing I wanted to do was start contributing to my IRA again, and use any remainder to invest in U.S. equity. Turns out this is not as easy as it sounds.
I found out that in order to legally contribute to my IRA, I had to pay U.S. taxes on my income used to contribute to it. Well, if you're like me and don't make an awful lot of money, you're probably filing with Foreign Tax Credit/IRS Foreign Earned Income Exclusion. This stuff basically let's you deduct all your taxes in Japan, as it on Japanese income and you already paid glorious Nippon taxes on that income. For me, this basically meant that I owed the IRS absolutely nothing every year. Great! Right? Buuuuut since I didn't pay any U.S. tax on my income, I cannot use it to contribute to my IRA! Dammit! (But actually a blessing in disguise because if I had been contributing to my IRA, I would have been breaking U.S. tax law because I didn't pay taxes on it.)
So, I started looking into other ways to invest: the U.S. stock market, bonds, etc. After reading The Boglehead's Guide, I knew I wanted to invest in Vanguard's mutual index funds. My first instinct was to open a brokerage account (which is different from your IRA account) with Vanguard. I started filling out the online form, but ran into issues. You have to specify a U.S. address. Also, you have to specify your U.S. employer. I had neither of these, so I called Vanguard (from Japan at a ridiculous call charge) and spoke with someone about doing this. They gave me the OK but said I'd have to submit a paper form through snail mail, and sent me a PDF to fill out and mail in. I mailed it (from Japan using EMS which was like $20..), and got a call about a week later. Surprise! Because I'm not working in Japan temporarily for a U.S. company or living on a U.S. military base (considered U.S. soil, I assume?), I actually can't open a brokerage account with them. Dammit again! What a waste of money calling them and mailing the form overseas.
So, I started looking into other options. I read about a few other brokers and most people agreed that I should either use Fidelity or Interactive Brokers. I had never heard of Interactive Brokers and honestly they seemed scary at first, so I decided to go with Fidelity, who I had actually heard of and is a U.S. based firm. I created an account with Fidelity, but once again ran into roadblocks when trying to open a stock trading account. I didn't have a U.S. address or employer, and actually wasn't able to link my U.S. bank account with them either (for reasons unknown). Dammit once again!
So, I started reading more about Interactive Brokers. Okay, it's still a little scary, but there are positive reports about using them online. I signed up for an account with minimal hassle, linked up my bank account, was able to transfer money over to them, and then successfully bought U.S. shares! Sweet success! Finally!

How to Invest

Part I: Contributing to your IRA
If you do not have an IRA, you probably should, as they are your basic investment option and tax-friendly to boot. However, good luck setting one up as a resident in Japan! Vanguard will happily babysit an IRA you opened prior to leaving the U.S., but they will not let you open a new one with a foreign address. I don't know about other brokers such as Fidelity or Schwabb, but it's probably the same story there.
If you are like me and happen to have an IRA leftover in the U.S., you CAN contribute to it, but in order to do so you must not deduct your Japanese tax on your IRS 1040 or file Form 1116, "Foreign Tax Credit". In other words, you must pay U.S. taxes on any income used to contribute to the IRA.
Refer to your broker for how to actually get the money to them from Japan.
Part II: Investing in U.S. Equity from Japan
Using Interactive Brokers
First, let me tell you a little bit about Interactive Brokers (IB). They are a service mostly used by regulaprofessional traders. The fees are very low and reasonable. However, they have a service charge of $10/month if your commission is equal to or less than $10 USD in that month. This is probably not a problem for people over 25 years old investing with $10,000+ USD, but for people 25 and under with an initial investment of $3000, it's possible you might not make the minimum commission per month. Beware of this fee.
IB lets you fund the account from many different currencies, regardless of what market you are buying (this needs confirmation, but seems to be accurate). So, whether you have a U.S. bank account or a Japanese bank account, you can fund the IB account. You can even fund from both.
IB does not let you invest in U.S. mutual funds. This sounds like a deal-breaker, but it's actually not. You can still invest in U.S. ETFs. This includes Vanguard's total stock market index ETF, total bond market index ETF, etc.
IB has an iPhone app that is pretty good and probably an Android app too. Although, as someone doing long-term investing for retirement, you probably don't need this and don't want to be checking your account too much (refer to /personalfinance as to why).
IB has multiple account types. You will probably see IBLLC and IBSJ. The differences are two-fold: First: an IBSJ is only used to trade Japan domestic equity. You don't want this because you want to trade U.S. equity. Instead, IBLLC is used to trade overseas (U.S. equity). Second: as of 2016, IBJS requires your My Number information, but IBLLC does not. Again, you don't want IBJS, so don't worry about the My Number information.
Open a "Japan Resident Individual Account for IBLLC" account online. This is a lengthy process. Make sure you have the required information.
  • You will need to send info about your current address in Japan, your 在留カード (zairyuu/"gaijin" card), job information, bank account information, and so on. I got confused and sent my My Number card information as well, but this only caused a hiccup in their process and I was told to remove it. Don't submit your My Number information.
  • You need to choose your base currency. Your base currency determines what currency you trade in and receive dividends/money from selling in. I think you need to specify USD here, but not sure. I chose USD because U.S. stocks are in USD and I used my U.S. bank account to intially fund my account. It may not matter, but this needs confirmation.
  • You need to specify that you have trading experience. I forget the actual numbers you need to put into the form, but make sure you put enough experience that allows you to trade ETFs overseas. You can fiddle with the numbers right there in the form, and options open up as you change the numbers. Play with it until it's just right. This part is hazy, and just seems to be some safeguards for IB so that new investors can't sue/blame IB for their own trading stupidity when they lose all their money. If you really don't have any experience trading, IB offers virtual "fake" accounts you can use to play around with trading. I suggest you try it.
After about a week you should have your new account. The next step is funding it, or you may have selected to fund it up front when you created the account so it may already be done. Anyway, the easiest way is to have IB request the wire transfer from your bank. I did this. It was really annoying, but it took about another week or so to go through. Beware that you probably can't start buying right away and need to wait for the transfer to clear.
Congratulations! You're ready to start buying now. Refer to /personalfinance in what to invest in. Remember that you are limited to buying ETFs and a few other things, and not mutual funds (but you can get their ETF equivalents).
Using
TBD... (anyone want to fill this out?)
Part III: Taxes
You need to declare and pay taxes on your dividends and any capital gains you make. Beware.
TBD... (this is arguably the most important part, but I just don't have time to go into it now. Someone feel free to help!)
TL;DR: Open an account with Interactive Brokers online and buy ETFs.

[Serious] I'm done with RH tendies boys, I'm ready to upgrade to a real broker...buuuut...

...which one?
Now, I've been shopping around a little bit, and understand enough of the markets to have narrowed down my picks to USAA, IB, and Optionhouse, but I'm looking to see if anyone has some experience with the advantages and disadvantages of the platforms, and what I should be considering before I take the plunge off the peir.
1) USAA. Commission is pretty gnarley, but through family assistance, I will be trading at the reduced commission rate of ~$6 pretty consistantly. Gives advance currency exchanges for trading foreign companies, and seems to have a competent, if not exactly sleek UI. Can't figure out how to access options on it though. I'm told they have very good fulfillment and instantanious placement times for orders, but I'm not sure how relevant that is.
2) Interactive Brokers: Lowest comissions of the 3, until I start playing with bigboys numbers, and won't need y'alls advisories, so don't worry about that. From what I can see, they're inconveniant as fuck, but you get what you don't pay for. I am <25, so I only need 3k to open an account with them, and that's not a problem. They don't do forex/futures (don't remember which), but that's fine cause I'm not interested in those yet.
3) Optionshouse: Somewhere between the previous two. Reasonable commission rates, very competative options trading rates, but not much said about them in the fors-or-againsts. Going into this one mostly blind.
Can anyone add any significant DDs on these brokers that I should be considering, or even feilding some of their own? I'm done with Robinhood and it's buggy piece of fuckery that not even an autistic faggot like me can abide.
(Don't worry about shitflinging, ima take everything in here with a mountain of salt. I just wanna hear peoples experiences/gripes about them)

Currency hedging with continuous futures, as a foreign (Canadian) investor

Hello all, I am a Canadian investor with over 65% of portfolio in USD stocks. The past couple years has been great since CAD went down compared to USD. I can't say where it will go in the future, but I would like to "lock-in" on the current exchange rate with regards to my investments.
I've looked into hedging strategies, and came across forex options and futures. I'm using Interactive Brokers and they do not offer forex options (only forex futures options, which is too "derivative" for my liking), so I'm looking to purchase a futures contract but I want to make sure I am understanding and doing this right:
  1. I see that there is a continuous futures contract, which will auto reroll on expiry. Does this mean I can just go long on a CAD.USD continuous futures, and expect to settle daily on currency fluctuations indefinitely until I close the position?
  2. I should be going long on this contract, which means I expect to purchase CAD with USD (convert my USD investments back to CAD) at some point in the future?
Thanks for the answers in advance.

[26/M] Receiving a windfall and looking for a bit of a clean slate

I'm 26 currently making around $30k a year doing freelance work after transitioning into a new industry. I live at home and my previous work experience allowed me to pay off any debt I had. I'm at a point now where I would like to make some of my investments a little bit safer but also have an account to play around with a bit.
First of all, I have been maxing out my Roth IRA at vanguard for a few years now and will continue to do so; no 401k in my line of work unfortunately. I do not foresee myself moving out any time soon and if I did it would most likely be only for a few years with roommates before I end up inheriting a small house.
Currently my main savings is $12k sitting in a High Yield Investor Checking account with Charles Schwab. This is a .1% APY checking account with a brokerage account attached. There are no fees for this account.
The more complicated part of my situation is this. I have an Interactive Brokers account that I opened up when I was 24 with about $5k. I was pretty dumb with this money and invested in a small number of individual stocks. I haven't sold any of my original investments and I'm up a couple grand right now but would like to get this money into something a little less risky. Since I am now over 25 Interactive Brokers is also charging $10 a month unless I can cover that in commission which lately I haven't been doing. I will also be receiving a $30k inheritance soon.
What I think I want to do is sell off most of what I have in my Interactive Brokers account right now and set up a lazy portfolio with either Schwab or Vanguard with the inheritance and a chunk of what I take out of IB. Any preference for the two?
My main question then is where to go with the money I would like to play around with? I am not looking to ever get in to options, futures, forex, etc and will mainly just be gambling/speculating with some excess income. Commission fees are great with the IB account but there may be some spans of time where I just want to relax and the idea of paying $10 bucks a month for something I wouldn't be utilizing anywhere near its full potential isn't that appealing to me. Then again, for the periods where I do want to be active, the much higher commission costs at other brokerages will be bothersome. Is Robinhood possibly a good route for me to take? I also wouldn't mind something with a much simpler interface as sometimes IB's TWS makes my head start to spin.
Part of me also thinks going with Schwab for everything might not be such a bad idea. Any thoughts?
Anyway, I appreciate the help and hopefully my plans don't seem extremely dumb.

News Update - 08.02.18

1) Do you remember the B2BX Roadmap? Of course you do! Our company reputation, White Paper and Roadmap are the aspects most ICO participants pay attention to.
The roadmap for the B2BX ICO included options for action depending on the amount of funds collected.
🔥 Now it's time to present the actual B2BX development plan!
The B2BX Roadmap: https://medium.com/@b2brokeb2broker-past-present-future-f2876c406a7c
We marked on the map the most important events for the company, not just plans for 2018-2019, but a short review of the past. The most important events of the future, of course, are obtaining licenses, developing our own technologies and opening offices in strategically important locations on the financial map of the world. All this brings us closer to the moment when B2BX becomes Prime Broker in the market of cryptocurrency liquidity! Full version on Medium.
2) Integration with ONEZERO
We ordered the placement on servers of Equinix - LD4. This data center hosts the largest European banks and brokers. Given that B2BX will have a cross-connect with liquidity providers, the speed of obtaining prices from providers and the speed of execution of orders will be as high as possible! New working conditions with OneZero will reduce the cost of services for our customers and increase our attractiveness for new customers. Recall that in B2BX will be able to nominate margin accounts in any currency, including cryptocurrencies.
3) CRYPTOCURRENCY PAYMENT GATEWAY
There is also the possibility of accepting a B2B coin with zero commission. We have started integration with 10 merchants and have begun to develop a site for B2B coin, which will accumulate information about all crypto-brokers, exchanges and other customers that will start to accept the B2B coin for payment. As we launch each merchant, we will send out a newsletter. We have also implemented the support of tokens based on Ethereum standard ERC20. Now every merchant can start receiving any token/coin issued on the Ethereum platform. Please note that if you have a website, an online store, a broker company, crypto-exchange or a marketplace, and you want to expand payment methods you should connect B2Broker crypto gateway. To do this, you just need to select the cryptocurrencies from the list that you want to accept (BTC, BCC, ETH, LTC, DASH, XMR, B2B, BTG (bitcoin gold) and hundreds of tokens released on the Ethereum platform), provide purse addresses and make an easy integration with your site. In just an hour your customers will be able to pay for goods or services using cryptocurrency with low commission rates every day, free installation, no monthly fee, no freeze period, no banks and no any third intermediaries.
4) INVESTMENT PLATFORM
To date, this product is used by 11 brokers, two of which have become our customers this year. The investment platform allows brokers to popularize cryptocurrency trading products while customers have the opportunity to subscribe to the signals of professional traders and earn. Also for professional traders it is possible to create PAMM accounts or portfolios of cryptocurrencies. The IT department has redesigned the back-end platform to make the MT5 work more stable.
5) Work with clients
The B2Broker account department adjusts business processes to improve operational efficiency. For example, improving the interaction with the development department will positively affect the speed of working with customers. Of course, the number of our employees is growing, but we understand that without optimizing business processes, we can not build an effective company! We are expanding the product line and preparing knowledge bases to quickly train employees.
Our clients comprise 72 companies, 25 of which use B2Broker’s cryptocurrency solutions!
The team is also developing new standards of service which will correspond to the status of Prime Broker.
6) PLATFORM FOR ICO
To date, our platform for ICO has benefited 4 companies. Of course, all payments go through our crypto gateway leaving these companies to concentrate on their marketing. Such a collaboration has proved its effectiveness. Large ICOs prefer this model, choosing a solution that is ready, tested and constantly updated. A demo version is available by clicking on the link.
Oh, and by the way!
This week in Finance Magnates there was a press release about the opening of office in Malaysia. https://www.financemagnates.com/forex/technology/b2broker-extends-asian-expansion-malaysian-office/
🔜 In mid-May, a summit on blockchain technology will take place in New York. https://www.coindesk.com/events/consensus-2018/sponsors/

Brokerages:
There are many factors to consider when choosing a brokerage. Regulations typically force US traders to only trade at US brokerages, while international traders have more choice. After considering location you need to consider how much capital you will start trading with as many have minimum deposit levels. Once you’ve narrowed that down you can compared spreads and execution. ECN brokers execute your orders straight through to their liquidity providers, while market maker brokers may pair up your trades with other clients. Market maker brokers typically will partially hedge your positions on the interbank market. Many consider this to be a conflict of interest and prefer to trade at an ECN broker who would have an active motive to see you succeed. Lastly, brokers run inherently risky business models so it is important to consider the risk of bankruptcy.

FAQ:
I need to exchange money, how do I do it?
This isn’t what this sub is for. Your best bet is using your bank or an online exchange service. Be prepared to pay a hefty fee.
I have money in one currency and need to exchange it into another sometime in the future, should I wait?
Don’t ask us this. We speculate intraday in FX and shouldn’t be relied on to tell you what’s best for you. Exchange the money when you need it.
I have an FX account, should I start trading demo or live?
This is highly debatable. You should definitely demo trade until you have mastered how to use the trading platform on desktop and mobile. After that it’s up to you. Many think that the psychology of trading live vs demo trading is massively different. So it may pay to learn to trade live. Just be warned that most FX traders lose almost their entire first account so start with a low affordable balance.
What’s money management?
Money management is a form of risk management and is arguably the most important aspect of your trading when it comes to long term survival. You should always enter trades with a stop loss - the distance of the stop allows you to calculate how large of a percent of your account balance will be lost if your trade stops out. You can run a monte carlo simulation to figure out the risk of having a number of trades go against you in a row to drain your account. The general rule is that you should only risk losing 1-4% of your account per trade entered.
More on this here: www.investopedia.com/articles/forex/06/fxmoneymgmt.asp[35]
www.swing-trade-stocks.com/money-management.html[36]
What about automated trading?
Retail FX traders have been known to program “Expert Advisors” (EAs) to automate trading. It’s generally advisable to stay away from that until you’re very experienced. Never buy an EA from a developer because the vast majority of them are scams.
What indicators are best?
That’s up to you to test and find out. Many in this forum dislike oscillating indicators since they fail to capture the essence of what moves price. With experience you will discover what works best for you. In my experience indicators that are most popular with professional traders are those that provide trading “levels” such as pivot points, fibonacci, moving averages, trendlines, etc.
What timeframe should I trade?
Price action can vary in different timeframes. In longer term timeframes the price action and fundamentals are much more clear. Unfortunately it would take a very long time to figure out whether or not what you’re doing is successful on longer timeframes. In shorter timeframes you can often tell very quickly if what you’re doing is profitable. Unfortunately there’s a lot more “noise” on these levels which can prove deceptive for those trying to learn. Therefore the best bet is to use a multi-timeframe analysis, working from top-down to come up with trades.
Should I trade using fundamental analysis (FA) of technical analysis (TA)?
This is a long standing argument in these forums and elsewhere. I’ll settle it here - you should have an understanding of both. Yes there are traders who blindly ignore one of the other but a truly well rounded trader should understand and implement both into the analysis. The market is driven in the longer term through FA. But TA is necessary to give traders a place to enter and exit trades from a psychological risk/reward standpoint.
I’ve heard trading Binary Options is an easy way to make money?
The general advice is to stay away from binaries. The structure of binary options is so that when you lose the broker wins. This incentive has created a very scammy industry where there are few legitimate binary options brokers. In addition in order to be profitable in binaries you have to win 55-65% of the time. That’s a much higher premium over spot FX.
Am I actually exchanging currencies?
Yes and no. Your broker handles spot FX is currency pairs. Although they make an exchange at the settlement date they treat your position in your account as a virtual currency pair. Think of it like a contract where you can only buy or sell it as a pair. In this sense you are always long one currency while short another. You are merely speculating that one currency will appreciate or depreciate vs another.
Why didn't my order fill?
Even if price appears to cross over a line on your chart it does not guarantee a fill. Different charting platforms chart different prices - some chart the bid price, some the ask price and some the midpoint price. To fill a limit order price needs to cross your limit's price plus the spread at the time that it is crossing. If it does not equal or exceed the spread then it will not fill. Be wary that in general spreads are not fixed. So what may fill at one time may not at another.

Infinite Binary Profits | Infinite Stupidity? | Which Comes 1st? | Sept.2015 Review

To be completely honest with you, I had every good intention to review this eye catching product. However, in identifying the hallmarks of a scammed promotional product, webpage and associated promoter (Mike) Infinite Binary Profits manages to ticks all the boxes. I'm thinking that Mike from Infinite Binary Profits is really relying heavily on the concept that good news, bad news, makes the news (or is it noise). Having reviewed this product there really is nothing fresh or unique about the way this promotion is launched.
 

Quick View Details:

Industry:........... Binary Options Website Link:..... http://infinitebinaryprofits.com Product:............ Automated trading system Promotor:.......... Mike Release Date:.... September 2015
 
Not a whole lot of fundamental analysis was required to debunk this one, five minutes into this investigative review, the prognosis is a no brainier. For that reason, I have awarded this product with a 5 star scam alert rating. Very commendable. If you have already checked out Infinite Binary Profits yourself, and/or you are still teetering on that fence, trying to determine, is this a scam or totally awesome? Splinters are inevitable.
 
To help you guys out both for both now and into the future, below I have generated a list, some blatantly obvious tell tail signs that scam promoters use to peddle their products across the internet.
For educational purposes, if you haven't already, click on the Infinite Binary Profits promotional video LINK, so we can use this as a test case example of what to look out for when identifying a scam.
 
Offical Link Site Promo Link ....... http://infinitebinaryprofits.com
 
When reviewing this list, take this advice with a pinch of salt, one or two of the strategies used here and there are in part used commonly as part of general internet marketing, within such campaigns most products are legitimate, with associated legitimate internet sites.
 
The real kicker in identifying a promoted scam is the fact that all scam tactics listed below are jammed into a single campaign. Hence you get that dodgy vibe when you visit such sites. With a bit of savvy marketing here, a touch of illusion and misdirection there, finally with a swift stroke of the human greed factor, before you know it a blindside is taking place, these happen every 15 seconds across the globe. Scammers have earnt well into the billions each year preying on the needy, the statistics just climb higher from year to year.
 
SCAM TACTICS: 1. Unsolicited/Junk Emails i.e. an unsolicited email is addressed to you specifically (or not) giving you some benefit 2. Ludicrous, sounds to good to be true statements/assumptions i.e. You will generate money until the end of time! 3. Cannot freely leave a website, repeated popup windows pressuring/bribing you to stay 4. Malicious software, also referred to as malware, spyware, installed on your PC. 5. Crazy/ludicrous promotional names e.g. "Infinite Binary Profits" 6. Limited Time Countdown time expiry widgets i.e. they reset when you revisit the site. 7. Offer that speak to you directly reveling your county/local 8. False Actors i.e. If there background setting is not congruent with their success If there background or the actors looks to good to be true, most likely a $5 fivver actor. i.e. https://www.fiverr.com/gigs/acto#page=1 9. If a site is littered with ads.
 
The list goes on, you get the general idea.
 
Remember you can greatly reduce the chances of being scammed on the Internet if you follow some simple precautions when researching any potential trading investment product or service. If you have signed up already with Infinite Binary Profits, comment below, share you experience with use. For anyone else wishing to zero in on Binary Options solutions, review my further warnings and recommendations below. I hope this review has been informative for you, thanks for reading.
 

WARNING ADVICE:

1. Always remember when testing out any new trading ventures, manual or automatic, make sure you have a money management plan, once you have a strategy in place stick with it.
 
2. A FREE trading DEMO account is a great way to test out new strategies so you don’t go bust in the process.  
3. Not all brokers are made equal when it comes to great customer service, being able to withdraw funds, having a user friendly, easy to use trading platform to work with. I have traded with a countless number of brokers, some I have had nightmare experiences. I prefer to trade only using industry regulated brokers tick all the boxes, as above ( I have listed these below). If
you are not sure, try out one of the brokers listed below, do a background check as required, they will provide you with a demo account on request.

My investment plan - warning long

My investment plan
Hello all I wanted to share my investment plan here to get some advice and ask some questions. A little background about me I’m married have abo both still in college almost done and I’m 25 both have stable jobs. We have no real debt to speak of. I have been trading in forex for two years never have really loss or gained any returns. But I only invested only $200 just to put a toe in the water. I’m here not to ask for advice on buying a particular stock I know that’s not real welcome, I’m more here to gain more insight and to discuss my investment plan and take suggestions. However over the past couple of months I have grown more concerned of our finical future and began to think more on the lines of short(day to day) medium(5-10 years) and long (retirement) terms when it comes to investing.
The way I’m thinking of breaking my investments down are in three ways:
Long term (retirement)
I’m thinking about doing a Roth IRA account, I do have a retirement account with my employer( that I really do need to check on I have not touched it since I opened it.) I’m not sure which broker I want to go with for a Roth IRA, however I do have a few questions about how the interworking’s work. I plan on wanting this option to be more hand off not much interaction however the most interaction every quarter.
I know you’re supposed to feed money to the account during the year, but how much money do you need to open the account?
Also does the money come from your Check when one gets paid or does one make the despots on their own from there bank account?
Can it also be monthly deposits and can those be variable $50 one month $100 the next month or $0?
Form what I have read its best to choose Index funds and not picking the stocks yourself, the indexes should give your IRA a good diversification. Or how should I invest it. Should I consider a Lazy portfolios like what is suggested here http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Lazy_portfolios ?
I don’t want to rollover my current retirement account with my employer is there any negatives to having the retirement account with my employer and opening a Roth IRA and have two retirement account?
I have looked at vanguard since it was recommend by investing for the longer term option, besides there low fees why go with them? I have look at their site they are currently a top contender. Also the suggestion from this thread (http://www.reddit.com/investing/comments/gfr26/i_have_5000_to_invest_but_i_know_nothing_about/ ) seems to be in line with what I have plan.
Medium (5-10) years
For medium term investments I’m thinking of doing dividend reinvestment plans and Direct Stock Purchase Plans. For this I have selected a company and I wouldn’t mind having this money tied up and the stock is cheap. http://www.coca-colacompany.com/investors/shareowner-services one can buy stock from them and the stock you directly hold and one gets paid dividends and they are reinvested. I will probably look at other companies as my capital grows but I was wanting to use Coca-Cola as a starting point for DRP and DSP. What does investing think?
*Day to day * I do have experience in trading the forex market, never have really made anything and I have not blown an account. Here I’m thinking of just day to day trading, I choose forex over day trading stocks because it’s what I already know and placing each trade is cheaper than what I have seen when trading stocks. I know forex seems to be risky however what other day to day investment tool is not risky…. I don’t plan on putting a lot of money here just something to earn extra cash from.
Gold and silver
I also do over time however plan on buying physical gold and silver, I won’t put a lot into this but if the opportunity comes up and the above is being well funded and I have spare income I do plan on buy silver then gold.
High interest online bank
I see this mention quite a bit does investing have a compiled list? Or recommend a online bank?
Summary
So that’s my investment plan and questions. I’m sure some will find major holes in it but if you do all I ask is give your reason and a suggestion. Didn’t expect this be this long, but hey I gave a warning. I don’t expect one person to be able to answer all of these questions, so don’t feel like you have to just if you have something to say or suggest just chime in. If you have any questions just ask. Thanks for taking the time to read.
