Forex Trading And The Global Currency Markets

More money is traded in forex and the global currency markets each day then on any other financial market. The daily value of trades is staggering and amounts to about 4 trillion dollars. Forex trading is the exchange of one currency for another rather than purchase or sale of a single currency. Because high leverage can be used the large fortunes can me made as huge amounts can be lost. Small amounts can also be traded and because forex platforms such as MT4 can be used by traders in their homes then currency trading is accessible to all with home trading on a PC. Most trading is on the five major currency pairs and many traders focus on the euro dollar. For many this can be more attractive than researching the hundreds of shares traded on the stock market. Additionally with stocks and shares the broker will charge commissions whereas forex brokers normally do not charge commissions but take their income from the bid/ask spre


#12m15m Let’s take the streets on May 12th. Because we are the 99%

On the 15th of October 2011 we took to the streets in over 1000 cities in 82 countries. We got organized and took the first steps on the road to dignity and global change. That was more than six months ago yet we continue to have to raise our voices to make politicians and bankers understand that they in no way represent us. We are united in our demands: the welfare of the 99% must be respected.

Governments only represent us if they follow the will of the vast majority, not just the privileged few.We are united, we are everywhere, we are where you least expect us.

We demand, firmly but without violence: social justice, wealth distribution and an ethic of commons. We condemn poverty, inequality, environmental devastation and corruption as tools of subjugation by the powerful on society.

We will not stop until we achieve our objectives: the 99% will take to the streets again and again until we have a say in the world in which we live. We want global change. Let’s turn the streets into the world’s biggest loudspeaker on the 12th of May.

Because we are the 99%, we are not owned by politicians and bankers. Take to the streets on May 12th!

Somos el 99%.

El pasado 15 de octubre salimos juntos a las calles en más de 1000 ciudades en 82 países. Tomamos las calles, nos organizamos y comenzamos un camino hacia un cambio global
Han pasado más de 6 meses y seguimos alzando la voz para dejar claro a políticos y banqueros que no nos representan, que estamos coordinados, pensando juntos y exigiendo nuestras reivindicaciones para que el bienestar del 99% de la población sea tenido en cuenta. La legitimidad de nuestros gobernantes reside en que deben atender los intereses de la inmensa mayoría de la sociedad y no el de unos pocos privilegiados.
Estamos juntos, estamos en todos lados, estamos donde no nos esperan. Reclamaremos con total firmeza y de un modo no violento la justicia social, la distribución de la riqueza y una ética pública mientras condenamos la pobreza, la desigualdad, la devastación medioambiental, la corrupción como herramientas de sometimiento de los poderosos sobre las sociedades.
No pararemos hasta conseguir nuestros objetivos, los del 99% de la población. Saldremos a la calle una y otra vez hasta que podamos decidir entre todos el mundo en el que queremos vivir. Queremos un cambio global.
Convirtamos las calles en el mayor altavoz del mundo el 12 de mayo.
Porque somos el 99%, porque no somos mercancía en manos de políticos y banqueros.

Occupy Boston is saddened by the fact that Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Chicago Police Department chose to arrest 175 members of Occupy Chicago last night for peacefully occupying Congress Plaza, placing city park ordinances above protestors’ constitutional rights to free speech and free assembly. We stand in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Chicago and offer them all of the help we can give.
