Forex Trading For Beginners

1 comment
The Foreign Exchange market, also known as the “FOREX” or “Forex” or “Retail forex” or “FX” or “ Spot FX” or just “Spot” is the largest financial market in the world, with a volume of about $2 trillion a day. If you compare that to the $25 billion a day volume that the New York Stock Exchange trades, you can easily see how enormous the Foreign Exchange really is. It actually equates to more than three times the total amount of the stocks and futures markets combined.


What is traded on the Foreign Exchange?

The simple answer is money. Forex trading is the simultaneous buying of buying of one currency and the selling of another. Currencies are traded through a broker or dealer, and are traded in pairs; for example the Euro and the US dollar (EUR/USD) or the British pound and the Japanese Yen (GBP/JPY). Because you are not buying anything physical, this kind of trading can be confusing. Think of buying a currency as buying a share in a particular country. When you buy, say, Japanese economy, as the price of the currency is a direct reflection of what the market thinks about the current future health of the Japanese economy.


In general, the exchange rate of a currency versus other currencies is a reflection of the condition of that country`s economy, compared to the other countries economies.

Unlike other financial markets like the New York Exchange, the Forex spot market has neither a physical location nor a central exchange. The Forex market is considered an Over-the-Counter (OTC) or `Interbank` market, due to the fact that the entire market is run electronically, within a network of banks, continously over a 24-hour period. Until the late 1990`s, only the “big guys” could play this game. The initial requirement was that you could trade only if you had about ten to fifty million bucks to start with! Forex was originally

Developments achieved today as a result faster communication, transportation and technology has turned the world into a global village. Hence it is not uncommon to find a product produced in one country being consumed in other countries. International marketing has led the acceptance of a product in countries other than where it was produced.
International marketing is, therefore, defined as the frontiers of a marketing organization to carry its activities beyond the frontiers of its country. When marketing activities are performed to compete beyond the domestic market, then it is international marketing.
Although marketing principles are universal, the performance of marketing activities beyond national boundaries, can be significantly different from what marketing in the domestic market entails. There is, therefore need to make adjustment in a firm’s marketing strategies to be able to cope with international standards.


Why international marketing


Before you can go into international market, the first decision is to decide whether to go international or not. In making this decision, you must therefore understand why people go to market abroad in order to assess yourself whether you can go or not. Some of the factors usually adduced for going to market abroad include:
  • Saturation of the domestic market: when the domestic market is saturated in terms of profit and sales potentials, you may decide to go abroad before decline sets in.
  •  Opportunities in foreign markets: when you identifies higher sales and profit opportunities in some foreign markets than domestic market you might decide to go international.
  •  Need to expand customer base: sometimes you may require expanding your customer base in order to enjoy the benefits of economies of scale and to fully utilize its large production capacity.
  • Risk reduction: Decision to market abroad may be an effort to spread and reduce risk by concentrating or depending on a single (home) market.

How to Brand A Product

No comments





Branding have gained prominence in the marketing world just because it has created room for product identification and differentiation and hence an opportunity for marketers to do business.
Many businesses have achieved success by having identification for their products thereby making it possible and easier for the target market to distinguish their product from competitors’ products. For example, after considering decisions bothering on packaging, some marketers now see it as another element of the marketing mix and therefore prefer to call it the 5th P. This article considers in detail marketing decisions on branding.

Meaning of Branding

Branding is the use of a distinctive name and/or mark on a product to differentiate it from similar competitive products it is a major tool used by most marketers. Most marketers operate under conditions that approximate monopolistic competition (a situation where there are many sellers of a generic kind of product and each seller being able to differentiate his from any other competitor’s products). This condition makes branding decision important and essential to marketers. Branding decision by companies seeking identification for their product’s resale by middlemen. The success of business therefore hangs on the ability of the target market to distinguish individual’s products.
The relevance of branding in differentiating products is relatively varying from product to product and from company to company. While agricultural products are difficult to differentiate because of their unprocessed nature, food processors canning or freezing such agricultural products can build brand preference for their brand through differentiation and promotion to convince buyers of the superiority of each.

Product Development (Niche Development)

No comments
Successful marketing programs are built around two essential elements i.e. products and markets. The product is very important to marketers because it is the heart of an organization’s marketing mix as all other variables of the marketing mix are built on product. Without a good product that possess adequate want-satisfying capabilities; a fair pair, persuasive promotion campaign and an excellent distribution channel have no value.

What is a product?

Alderson (1957) defined a product as “a bundle of utilities consisting of various product features and accompanying services”. This product is provided by the seller who sells a particular combination of features and associated service. What this implies is that a product comes into play in an exchange and this is why it is sometimes referred to as what a seller has to sell and what a buyer has to buy.
Product development is the creation and adjustment of goods and services in order to satisfy consumer’s demand. It is in an adjustment in a company’s product mix in response to changes in buyers’ preferences. This is why the provision for satisfaction should be primary in any product development effort. Consumers pay their money to obtain satisfaction and not in specific technical features, hence any product to developed should aim at solving some problems either for industrial user or the ultimate consumer.

Packaging according to kotler (1997) includes the activities of designing and producing the container or wrapper for a product. Since the product cannot be sold naked (without any container) the entire activities of providing a wrapper or container for a product is termed packaging. It also incudes material of which the package is made, the unique colours, graphics and symbols used to differentiate a brand of product from other brands.


Packaging Can Be in Three Layers:

Primary Package:  which is the next material to the product. It has the role immediate protection of the product. Examples are the tin that contain Bournvita or Milo and the bottle that contains Coca-Cola or Pepsi.

 Secondary Package: is the next material to the primary package i.e. when primary packages are packed then we refer to the secondary package. Examples are the carton that houses the tins of Bournvita or Milo, and crate that house Coca-Cola or Pepsi.

Shipping Package: contains the secondary package. Shipping package may be made from corrugated sheets or box to make shipping convenient.
The importance of packaging to the modern marketer lies in in its extensive use. The importance of packaging in today’s marketing decision making has encouraged some marketers to treat packaging as another element of the marketing mix. Hence they refer to the 5 P’s with packaging being the 5th P.A package therefore can form a vital part of the product and so can affect the consumer’s purchase decision.
