Forex Articles for the Weekend – February 26

After a very volatile week that saw geo-political tensions impact currencies very strongly, the markets are now closed. It’s time to sit back and enjoy some more long term forex-related articles. Here are my picks from selected websites:

  • Larry Greenberg analyzes why Japan has a safe haven status.
  • Lior Cohen explains how the Middle East turmoil affects the Brent / WTI oil spread. The gap is closely watched in these days of Libyan trouble.
  • Kathy Lien explains why high oil is bad for the US dollar. Here’s a recent  Elliot Wave analysis of oil.
  • Adam Kritzer tries to untangle the puzzle of risk appetite, an important factor that pushes currencies.
  • Michael Greenberg interviews Gain Capital’s CEO, Glenn Stevens about execution performance and lots more.
  • Francesc Riverola is impressed by Forex Factory’s Trader Explorer. Here’s my review of  Trade Explorer.
  • Jay Norris explains the advantages of trading forex on a platform that also handles futures.
  • James Woodley introduces a big forex event in 2011 – an event that takes place on the web.
  • Andriy Miraru tells the story of a huge forex scam – the story of David A. Smith.
  • Casey Stubbs has been at the NY Traders Expo and began mentoring a young college student named Nathan Tucci. An interesting video indeed.
  • James Chen announces his achievement in FXStreet’s best forex awards. Congratulations James! Forex Crunch also had achievements.

Here are some of the long term articles published on Forex Crunch this week. There were quite a few:

That’s it! Have a great weekend!

Yohay Elam: Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I've accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I've worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
