Commodities are the basic building blocks of the global economy, and as such are hugely important. Commodities refer to primary goods such as wheat, gold or oil, and are traded on dedicated exchanges around the world. They are often influential components of the financial markets, so understanding how they are priced, and how they are traded, is extremely important. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­----------- Watch more educational videos - http://bit.ly/EducationPlaylist Try our Demo Platform - http://bit.ly/IGDemoAccount ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­----------- Wikipedia: A commodity market is a market that trades in primary rather than manufactured products. Soft commodities are agricultural products such as wheat, coffee, cocoa and sugar. Hard commodities are mined, such as gold, rubber and oil. Investors access about 50 major commodity markets worldwide with purely financial transactions increasingly outnumbering physical trades in which goods are delivered. Futures contracts are the oldest way of investing in commodities. Futures are secured by physical assets. Commodity markets can include physical trading and derivatives trading using spot prices, forwards, futures, and options on futures. Farmers have used a simple form of derivative trading in the commodity market for centuries for price risk management. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­----------- Disclaimer: The comments in this video are intended by IG Asia Pte Ltd for general circulation.

How To Choose a Market to Trade

Choosing a market is perhaps the most important decision a trader can make. With thousands of tradable assets to choose from, the choice can be a daunting one for anybody. Should you trade shares or commodities? Forex or indices? In this video, IG’s Sara Walker guides you through some of the steps you should take in your decision making process, which will help you pick a market that you can trade successfully. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Watch more educational videos - http://bit.ly/EducationPlaylist Try our Demo Platform - http://bit.ly/SingaporeDemoAccount ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Wikipedia: A financial market is a market in which people and entities can trade financial securities, commodities, and other fungible items of value at low transaction costs and at prices that reflect supply and demand. Securities include stocks and bonds, and commodities include precious metals or agricultural goods. In economics, typically, the term market means the aggregate of possible buyers and sellers of a certain good or service and the transactions between them. The term "market" is sometimes used for what are more strictly exchanges, organizations that facilitate the trade in financial securities, e.g., a stock exchange or commodity exchange. This may be a physical location (like the NYSE, BSE, NSE) or an electronic system (like NASDAQ). Much trading of stocks takes place on an exchange; still, corporate actions (merger, spinoff) are outside an exchange, while any two companies or people, for whatever reason, may agree to sell stock from the one to the other without using an exchange. Trading of currencies and bonds is largely on a bilateral basis, although some bonds trade on a stock exchange, and people are building electronic systems for these as well, similar to stock exchanges. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclaimer: The comments in this video are intended by IG Asia Pte Ltd for general circulation.

What Is Short Selling?
 
02:48
Generally, all traders know that you should buy at a low price, and sell at a high one. But short selling flips this logic on its head and advocates selling high, then buying low. While the concept of short-selling can be difficult to understand, it is a powerful tool for any trader. In this video IG’s Sara Walker explains what short selling is, how it works, and how you can use it to your advantage. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Watch more educational videos - http://bit.ly/EducationPlaylist Try our Demo Platform - http://bit.ly/SingaporeDemoAccount ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Wikipedia: In finance, short selling (also known as shorting or going short) is the practice of selling securities or other financial instruments that are not currently owned, and subsequently repurchasing them ("covering"). In the event of an interim price decline, the short seller will profit, since the cost of (re)purchase will be less than the proceeds which were received upon the initial (short) sale. Conversely, the short position will be closed out at a loss in the event that the price of a shorted instrument should rise prior to repurchase. The potential loss on a short sale is theoretically unlimited in the event of an unlimited rise in the price of the instrument, however in practice the short seller will be required to post margin or collateral to cover losses, and any inability to do so on a timely basis would cause its broker or counterparty to liquidate the position. In the securities markets, the seller generally must borrow the securities in order to effect delivery in the short sale. In some cases, the short seller must pay a fee to borrow the securities and must additionally reimburse the lender for cash returns the lender would have received had the securities not been loaned out. Historically, short selling is going against the upward trend of the stock market. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclaimer: The comments in this video are intended by IG Asia Pte Ltd for general circulation.

Through this process, a private company transforms into a public company. Initial public offerings are used by companies to raise expansion capital, to possibly monetize the investments of early private investors, and to become publicly traded enterprises. A company selling shares is never required to repay the capital to its public investors. After the IPO, when shares trade freely in the open market, money passes between public investors. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­----------- Disclaimer: The comments in this video are intended by IG Asia Pte Ltd for general circulation.

02:24
Risk management is vital for any trader. It is often the difference between success and failure in the long term. If you don’t account for and manage your trading risk appropriately, you are very likely to fail. Risk management forms a key part of an overall trading plan, and in this video IG’s Sara Walker walks you through some of the basic elements of a risk management strategy. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Watch more educational videos - http://bit.ly/EducationPlaylist Try our Demo Platform - http://bit.ly/SingaporeDemoAccount ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Investopedia: The process of identification, analysis and either acceptance or mitigation of uncertainty in investment decision-making. Essentially, risk management occurs anytime an investor or fund manager analyses and attempts to quantify the potential for losses in an investment and then takes the appropriate action (or inaction) given their investment objectives and risk tolerance. Inadequate risk management can result in severe consequences for companies as well as individuals. For example, the recession that began in 2008 was largely caused by the loose credit risk management of financial firms. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclaimer: The comments in this video are intended by IG Asia Pte Ltd for general circulation.

How well do you know your leveraged FX and CFD provider?
 
01:53
How well do you really know your leveraged Forex and CFD provider? There are a number of important questions to ask yourself when you are selecting a provider, before you entrust your money to them. In this video IG’s Sara Walker will take you through some of the most important ones to ask. The main things to look out for are: Are they regulated? In Singapore, there are a number of both regulated and unregulated providers, so it is important to make sure yours is licensed and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Are your funds segregated? Client money should be segregated from the provider’s own money, according to MAS regulations. Are they based in Singapore? If they are in Singapore, they will have to be licensed by MAS in order to operate, and if something goes wrong you will be able to speak to a local representative. It may be tempting to go for a cheaper, offshore provider, but in the long run this could cost you a great deal. Instead, be sure to deal with a licensed, regulated, Singapore-based provider. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Watch more educational videos - http://bit.ly/EducationPlaylist Try our Demo Platform - http://bit.ly/SingaporeDemoAccount ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Disclaimer: The comments in this video are intended by IG Asia Pte Ltd for general circulation.

China A50 rising for 11th straight day
 
01:44
Chinese stocks are staging another run today on the back of fresh optimism from last night’s positive US economic data. The recent rally in Chinese stocks has been particularly rewarding for trend followers. The China A50 is on track to close higher for 11 days in a row, translating to a jump of around 24% over this period. Part of this rally was sparked by the move by China’s central bank to cut interest rates last month, the first time in more than two years. This fed speculation of further stimulus measures on the horizon that would revive economic growth and ultimately lend some support to stocks. The case has certainly been building for another stimulus move by the People’s Bank of China (PBoC). Expectations are high that the central bank will follow last month’s rate cuts with a reduction in the reserve requirement ratio. This will make more funds available for lending, complementing the earlier move to lower the cost of funds. The likelihood of another stimulus move also increases as growth continues to stutter. So far, indicators for November are pointing to a slugging manufacturing sector. Earlier this week, China’s manufacturing PMI for November fell to 50.3 – an eight-month low. There was little traction in yesterday’s non-manufacturing PMI figures, which rose only slightly from 53.8 to 53.9. Despite this sluggish picture of growth, Chinese stocks have been on steroids as investors price in effects of potential stimulus. On a weekly chart, the China A50 Index can be seen edging towards a potential resistance level of around 9230 points, which is the previous high formed in 2013. Investors can watch out for a possible pullback as it tests the resistance level. A clear break above this level would suggest the momentum is likely to continue and provide some confidence to investors to enter long. In this scenario, the key psychological level of 10,000 points will be the next target resistance area to watch out for.
