How to invest online​

It's never been easier for retail traders to finance in today's volatile markets with MetaTrader 5 trading platform.

To speed up the learning process, we would like to go through the basics of online investing and summarize some of the vital factors traders ought to consider before positioning their first trade.

Online investing authorizes investors easy and frugal access to global financial markets.
  • Things to consider when selecting an online broker include reputation, platform security, fees/commissions, products, payment options, and customer reviews.​
  • When trading online, traders should be able to use market, limit, stop, and take-profit orders.​
  • Newbie investors can always utilize Yahoo and Google Finance as a starting point for studying stocks, futures, options, and cryptocurrencies.​
When selecting an online broker, here are several essential things to consider.

Platform Security
Solid ECN protects its client's money and identity. You are protected with enhanced security features such as two-factor authentication (2FA) and SMS/email notification login security alerts and we agree not to sell your personal information to third parties. That said, at Solid ECN, the KYC assessment for customers is not necessary for transactions below $1,000.

Fees / Commissions
If a trader plans to trade actively, it's essential to choose an online broker that delivers competitive trading commissions, as they can add up fast. Although numerous brokers offer zero commission, be careful that they may add the extra charge through a wider spread. Furthermore, find out if the broker applies minimum deposit costs, annual or monthly account maintenance expenses, data fees, and activity fees. Yes, some brokers will charge you for not trading!

Solid ECN charges only $3 or 0.3 pips for major pairs. The spread is always kept at its minimum which is from zero by integrating +5 tier one banks and liquidity providers. We have no hidden fees and no maintenance expenses. A client at Solid ECN pays a small commission for executing a trade, and that would be all!

Product Offerings
Make sure the platform you pick offers all the trading instruments and products you want. For example, if you like to trade complex strategies that utilize different investment instruments, ensure that the platform offers stocks, Forex, Commodities, and futures trading. Solid ECN is even beginning to offer leading cryptocurrencies on MetaTrader 5. Newbie traders may want to consider an online broker that offers a demo account to sharpen their skills before staking real money.

Online Reviews
What are other customers saying? Pay special attention to reviews about customer service, platform usability, and commissions. Solid ECN ranked 4.8/5 on Trust Pilot, 5/5 on FPA, and 5/5 on review.io. To get a more accurate consideration, ensure that the broker you are choosing has many reviews, and look for patterns in what customers are saying. For instance, if several reviews are complaining about bad customer service, there's a high chance that the broker may need to work in that area.

Understanding Basic Order Types
1/2

Traders must educate themselves with necessary order classes which are common across all trading platforms. Understanding how these order types work and when to utilize them assists get the best execution and managing the market risks.

forum-1.png


Market Order
This is a type of execution to purchase or sell a trading instrument at the best-offered price. For instance, consider the bid/ask spread in Apple was $180 – $180.1, and a trader decided to buy the stock at the market price. They would get a quick fill at $180.1, the best ask price. Traders generally use market orders when they want a fast execution.

Limit Order
A limit order establishes the maximum quote a trader is willing to pay for a trading product (buy limit order) or the minimum they're ready to receive a security product (sell limit order). For example, let's say the bid/ask spread in Apple is $180 – $180.10, but the trader believes they can sell at a better price. They could place a limit order at $190, meaning that their securities won't be sold unless the bid price reaches at least $190. Limit orders are very useful for traders who are more concerned about the price than a quick execution

Stop Loss Order.
A stop loss order helps traders by closing a trade at the market price as soon as the instrument has been dealt with or through a marked price.

stop-loss.png


In other words, if the trading instrument reaches the trader's stop price, the order flips to a market order and executes at the subsequent best-known price. For instance, a trader buys Apple stock for $200. But the trader is reluctant to keep the trade running if the share price falls below $150. In this case the trader places a stop-loss order at $150. If the stock slumps t0 $150, the stop-loss order activates and converts to a market order, and the trade closes at the closest bid price. Any trader should consider using Stop-loss orders to minimize trading risks and secure their assets.

Almost every trader spends time seeking that perfect entry or exit point in the market. While the searching process can be interesting, the outcome is still the same. The fact is, there is no one solution to trading the stock markets. Therefore, traders should learn that indicators can only help them find good opportunities to purchase or sell a trading product.

There are four distinct market indicators that most prosperous forex traders are using.

Trend following indicators​

A trend-following tool helps traders find the direction of the current wave. It is feasible to make profits by going against the trend, but more risk will be involved. Therefore, experienced traders find the trend direction to ease their approach to the market.

Most traders use trend-following indicators as a separate trading strategy, and since this is considerable, the real aim of using a trend-following indicator is to locate where you should consider buying or selling an asset. One of the most popular trend-following indicators is the moving average crossover.

A simple moving average symbolizes the average closing price over a specific number of days.

The chart beneath shows the 50-day/200-day moving average crossover for the euro/yen symbol. The approach here is that the trend is good when the 50-day moving average (in yellow) is above the 200-day average (in blue) and negative when the 50-day is below the 200-day. As the chart below indicates, this blend did well in determining the primary trend of the market. You should know, that there will be whipsaws or fake break-outs regardless of your moving-average settings.

ma-2.png


The chart below shows a different mix. The 10-day/30-day crossover. The advantage of this blend is that it will respond faster to changes in the market price movements than the last one. The downside is that it will be more exposed to whipsaws than the longer-term 50-day/200-day crossover.

ma-1.png


Many traders may claim that the settings they are using for moving averages are the best, but the fact is, there is no so-called "the best" moving average combination.
The important is, that forex traders will benefit from using trend-following indicators regardless of their combinations, and gradually they will find that combination fits their trading strategy.

The trend shown by moving averages should be used to notify traders if they can trade long or short. It should not be relied on when to enter or exit trades.​

expert-advisers.png


In forex trading, a trading robot or an EA (expert adviser) is a software that suggests to traders when to make a deal or the EA trades on behalf of the user. Dealers can program their expert advisers to manage accounts using their trading measures and standards.

Expert advisors are often used within the MetaTrader 4 or 5 trading platforms. Traders can utilize a current EA or make their own based on the trading parameters they want. These robots are in MetaQuotes Language (MQL) and could be coded within the platform or by purchasing from the MT5 store.

expert-advisers-1.png

Highlights​

  • Expert advisor lets traders deal in the securities at any time, even when they are sleeping.​
  • The expert adviser can find trading patterns and deal with them based on the given instructions.​
  • An EA should be used with caution. Mostly have errors during high volatility markets such as when there is high impact news.​
  • Traders still have a part to play in trading by peeking out for the circumstances that could impact their trades.​

What Is an Expert Advisor?​

An expert advisor is a coded program that is made to automate trading in the securities market. As you know, the market is running 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Traders can take advantage of expert advisors or a trading tool called a "forex robot" to carry out trades when they are away.

These tools allow traders to execute trades while they are at work, asleep, or spending quality time with their families. Like other artificial intelligence platforms, they have some advantages and problems that any trader must be aware of.

On the daily chart, the development of the third wave of the higher level (5) of 3 continues, in which wave 3 of (5) has formed. At the moment, there is a downward correction as the fourth wave 4 of (5), within which wave c of 4 is being formed.

If the assumption is correct, after it is finished, the growth of XAUUSD will continue to the levels of 2100 - 2200. The level of 1827.33 is critical and stop-loss for this scenario.

benefits-of-trading-crypto.png


Crypto is a relatively new asset class that began with the creation of the Bitcoin blockchain in 2009. The primary benefit of Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies based on blockchain technology is that they don’t have a central authority, payment processor, or company owner.

Instead, crypto networks are peer-to-peer, meaning people can transact directly with one another. Many of the additional benefits of cryptocurrency stem from their decentralized and peer-to-peer nature. Let’s look at some positives of cryptocurrency in this crypto guide.

1. Easy Transactions
2. Incredible Security
3. Short Settlement Times and Low Fees
4. Exponential Industry Growth
5. Outsized Returns
6. More Private Transactions
7. Portfolio Diversification
8. Inflation Hedge
9. Cross-Border Payments
10. A More Inclusive Financial System
11. Transactional Freedom
12. 24/7 Markets

benefits-of-trading-crypto.png


The above are just a few of the most important advantages of cryptocurrency. Of course, there are potential flaws as well — its volatility being a major downside. As with anything, those interested in buying, selling, and trading crypto would be wise to do their research before getting involved in the crypto market.

Ready to trade crypto? With a MetaTrader trading account from Solid ECN you can buy and sell Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dogecoin, Cardano and more.

Crypto transactions can be made easily, at low cost, and in a manner more private than most other transactions. Using a simple smartphone app, hardware wallet, or exchange wallet, anyone can send and receive a variety of cryptocurrencies.

Some types of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum, can be bought with cash at a Bitcoin ATM. A bank account isn’t always required to use crypto. Someone could buy bitcoin at an ATM using cash then send those coins to their phone. For people who lack access to the traditional financial system, this may be one of the biggest pros of cryptocurrency.​

Incredible Security
Because they are based on cryptography and blockchain security, decentralized cryptocurrencies tend to make for secure forms of payment. This might be one of the most certain benefits of cryptocurrency.

Crypto security is determined in large part by hash rate. The higher the hash rate, the more computing power it would take to compromise the network. Bitcoin is the most secure cryptocurrency, having the highest hash rate of any network by far.

Using a crypto exchange is only as secure as the exchange itself, however. Most incidents of crypto being hacked involve exchanges being hacked or individuals making mistakes.

1.png


Short Settlement Times and Low Fees
While some people only want to invest in cryptocurrency for price appreciation, others might find benefit in the ability to use crypto as a medium of exchange.

Bitcoin and Ether transactions could cost anywhere from nickels and dimes to several dollars or more. Other cryptocurrencies like Litecoin, XRP, and others can be sent for pennies or less. Payments for most cryptos settle in seconds or minutes. Wire transfers at banks can cost significantly more and often take three to five business days to settle.

2.png


Exponential Industry Growth
The cryptocurrency industry has been one of the fastest-growing markets that most of us have seen in our lifetimes. Being involved now might reasonably be compared to being involved with companies on the leading edge of the internet back in the 1990s and early 2000s.

The total market cap of the cryptocurrency market in 2013 was about $1.6 billion. By June 2021, it rose to over $1.4 trillion.

Outsized Returns
It’s no secret that Bitcoin has been the best-performing asset of the last 12 years. When it began in 2009, Bitcoin essentially had no value. In the following years it would rise to a fraction of a penny and then eventually to tens of thousands of dollars. This represents millions of percentage points’ worth of gains. By comparison, the S&P 500 index of stocks returns an average of about 8% per year.

Some altcoins have outperformed Bitcoin by wide margins at times, although many of those later saw their prices collapse. Gains like these might be among the most well-known cryptocurrency benefits. (The losses, on the other hand, may be among the most well-known drawbacks.) Volatility has characterized prices in the crypto space, which has been one of the key benefits of cryptocurrency for day traders and speculators.

benefits-1.png


More Private Transactions
Privacy can be one of the benefits of cryptocurrency, but crypto isn’t as private as some people might think. Blockchains create a public ledger that records all transactions forever. While this ledger only shows wallet addresses, if an observer can connect a user’s identity to a specific wallet, then tracking transactions becomes possible.

While it’s worth noting that most crypto transactions are pseudonymous, there are ways to make more anonymous transactions. Coin mixing services group transactions together in a way that makes it hard to pick them apart from one another, confusing outside observers. Individuals who run a full node also make their transactions more opaque because observers can’t always tell if the transactions running through the node were sent by the person running the node or by someone else.

Methods like these are for more advanced users and could prove difficult for those new to crypto. So while absolute privacy is really not one of the main positives of cryptocurrency, transactions are still generally more private than using fiat currency with third-party payment processors.

benefits-2.png


Portfolio Diversification
Cryptocurrency has become known as a non-correlated asset class. Crypto markets largely function independently of other markets, and their price action tends to be determined by factors other than those affecting stocks, bonds, and commodities.

Any asset that has risen by millions of percentage points over just twelve years, as a number of crypto coins have, clearly is not correlated to anything else. But it’s worth noting that during the last few years, cryptos have begun to sometimes trade in tandem with stocks for short periods of time.

Forex trading doesn’t take place on a regulated exchange (like shares or other assets do), as it occurs between buyers and sellers from anywhere in the world, through an over-the-counter (OTC) market. To be able to access this market, you need to use a Solid broker.

As this market is not centralized, you’ll quickly realize that you can access different exchange rates and trading conditions, depending on the broker you use. For this reason, choosing the right broker for your trading style is essential in becoming a successful Forex trader. It’s important to note that even if there are many brokers out there offering similar products and services, there are a few things you should check before deciding which one to use, to be sure you’ll be giving yourself the best chance to succeed.

ecn-broker-1.png


You need to be sure it offers the right kinds of trading platforms and trading accounts for your trading style – not to mention other details such as trading conditions, spreads, minimum deposit, payment methods, main currency of the account, and the availability of the technical support.

Another very important thing to consider when choosing a broker is what type of broker that they are, as they are different kinds – predominately, Market Makers and ECNs.

ecn-broker-2.png


Market Maker vs. ECN broker
Understanding the definition of a Market Maker is pretty straightforward – it’s a broker that “makes the markets” by setting the bid and the ask prices via its own systems. Then, they display these prices via their platforms, so that investors can open and close trading positions.

Usually, a Market Maker broker will not hedge its client positions with other liquidity providers like an ECN broker would do. Instead, what Market Markets do is they pay winning client positions out of their own accounts. It also means that when a client has a winning trading position, a Market Maker broker loses.

An ECN broker stands for Electronic Communication Network (ECN). Solid ECN provides its traders with direct access to other market participants via interbank trading prices. This network allows buyers and sellers in the exchange to find a counterparty of their trading positions.

ecn-broker-3.png


Solid ECN uses different liquidity providers, we are able to allow prices from these providers to compete in the same auction, which usually means that traders get better prices and cheaper trading conditions. Moreover, by using an ECN broker, traders usually trade in a more efficient and transparent environment.

Solid ECN Securities makes money with the trading volume of its clients, charging a commission on each position.

> Solid ECN broker doesn’t trade against its clients.
> Solid ECN broker is only the intermediary between your buying and selling orders, matching you up with different market participants.

Hence, Solid ECN broker doesn’t bet against you, which means that it never takes the other side of your trading positions. This trading model ensures you that there is no conflict of interest, as an ECN broker gets a commission whether you make or lose money.

benefits-1.png


Using an ECN broker limits price manipulation, increases transparency and provides better trading conditions. As an ECN broker doesn’t “make the market” by creating its own quotes, it is harder for it to manipulate prices, simply because it uses prices from different liquidity providers. With an ECN broker, you have access to real-live, current information, as well as more accurate prices history, hence why it is more difficult for this type of broker to manipulate prices. Displaying prices from official sources transparently in the Solid ECN trading platforms makes it easier for you to trade instantly, with tighter spreads than other types of brokers. Moreover, you usually get lower fees and commissions, as well as immediate confirmations.

Another benefit of accessing real quotes is that you avoid “re-quotes”, which can have a negative impact on your overall trading performance. This usually happens when your trading order is rejected because of the change in the price of the asset you want to invest in. Then, the broker offers you a “re-quote” of the given asset (which rarely works out in your favor).

benefits-2.png


Bottom-Line
As you can see, using us (Solid ECN) allows you to trade more efficiently and profitably, thanks to better trading conditions and better trading execution. With increased transparency and no conflict of interest, Solid ECN like MultiBank are the most reliable and safe way to trade.​

stop-loss.png

Understanding Stop-Loss Orders

Stop-loss orders can also be used to lock in a certain amount of profit in a trade. For example, if a trader has bought a stock at $2 a share and the price subsequently rises to $5 a share, he might place a stop-loss order at $3 a share, locking in a $1 per share profit in the event that the price of the stock falls back down to $3 a share.

It’s important to understand that stop-loss orders differ from limit orders that are only executed if the security can be bought (or sold) at a specified price or better. When the price level of a security moves to – or beyond – the specified stop-loss order price, the stop-loss order immediately becomes a market order to buy or sell at the best available price.

Therefore, in a rapidly moving market, a stop-loss order may not be filled at exactly the specified stop price level, but will usually be filled fairly close to the specified stop price. But traders should clearly understand that in some extreme instances stop-loss orders may not provide much protection.

For example, let’s say a trader has purchased a stock at $20 per share and placed a stop-loss order at $18 a share, and that the stock closes on one trading day at $21 a share. Then, after the close of trading for the day, catastrophic news about the company comes out.

If the stock price gaps lower on the market open the next trading day – say, with trading opening at $10 a share – then the trader’s $18 a share stop-loss order will immediately be triggered because the price has fallen to below the stop-loss order price, but it will not be filled anywhere close to $18 a share. Instead, it will be filled around the prevailing market price of $10 per share.

With limit orders, your order is guaranteed to be filled at the specified order price or better. The only guarantee if a stop-loss order is triggered is that the order will be immediately executed, and filled at the prevailing market price at that time.

stop-loss-1.png

Purposes of Stop-Loss Orders

The main purposes of a stop-loss order are to reduce risk exposure (by limiting potential losses) and to make trading easier (by already having an order in place that will automatically be executed if the market trades at a specified price).

Traders are strongly urged to always use stop-loss orders whenever they enter a trade, in order to limit their risk and avoid a potentially catastrophic loss. In short, stop-loss orders serve to make trading less risky by limiting the amount of capital risked on any single trade.

Understanding different stock types can benefit your portfolio
When most people think of stocks, they typically think of publicly listed shares traded on the stock exchange. However, it's important for investors to know the different types of stocks available, understand their unique characteristics, and be able to determine when they may represent a suitable investment. Below, we outline the various stock categories, aiming to take the confusion out of differing stock classes on offer to investors.

types-of-stocks-3.png


Common and Preferred Stock
Common stock—sometimes referred to as ordinary shares—represents partial ownership in a company. This stock class entitles investors to generated profits, usually paid in dividends. Common stockholders elect a company's board of directors and vote on corporate policies. Holders of this stock class have rights to a company's assets in a liquidation event, but only after preferred stock shareholders and other debt holders have been paid. Company founders and employees typically receive common stock.

types-of-stocks-2.png


On the other hand, preferred stock, or preference shares, entitles the holder to regular dividend payments before dividends are issued to common shareholders. As mentioned above, preferred shareholders also get repaid first if the company dissolves or enters bankruptcy. Preferred stock doesn't carry voting rights and suits investors seeking reliable passive income.

Many companies offer both common and preferred stock. For example, Alphabet Inc Google's parent company - lists Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL), its Class A common stock, and Alphabet Inc. (GOOG), its preferred Class C stock.

You can trade the common stock market at Solid ECN Securities.

Growth Stocks vs. Value Stocks
As their name suggests, growth stocks refer to equities expected to grow at a faster rate compared to the broader market. Generally, growth stocks tend to outperform during times of economic expansion and when interest rates are low. For instance, technology stocks have significantly outperformed in recent years, fueled by a robust economy and access to cheap funding. Investors can monitor growth stocks by following the themed exchange-traded fund (ETF), the SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 Growth ETF (SPYG).

growth-market-forum-2.png


Conversely, value stocks trade at a discount to what a company's performance might otherwise indicate, typically having more attractive valuations than the broader market. Value stocks—such as financial, healthcare, and energy names—tend to outperform during periods of economic recovery, as they usually generate reliable income streams. Investors can track value stocks by adding the SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 Value ETF (SPYV) to their watchlist.

growth-market-forum-3.png


Income Stocks
Income stocks are equities that provide regular income by distributing a company's profits, or excess cash, through dividends that are higher than the market average. Typically, these stocks—think utilities—have lower volatility and less capital appreciation than growth stocks, making them suitable for risk-averse investors who seek a regular income stream. Investors can access income stocks through the Amplify High Income ETF (YYY).
