The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank Explained in One Minute

The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have been founded just like the United Nations after the World War 2. Why? Mainly because after the war, everyone wanted peace. However, peace on an empty stomach is hard to maintain. So, these two institutions were meant to help the economic stability of the world. Both of them are basically banks, but instead of being started by individuals like regular banks, they […]

Regulating the Banking System

Hi, my name is Jenny, and I work at the Bank of England. Today, I am going to tell you about why we regulate the banking system. UK banks help people manage their finances. They look after money held in bank accounts, provide loans to people who need to borrow and handle millions of customers, transactions each day. These include in-store and online spending, bills payments, wages, and benefits, and high street […]

Gold and the Bank of England

Hi, my name is Mary, and I work for the Bank of England. Today, I am going to tell you about gold. In early times, gold was used as money. It has an intrinsic value and it is hard to damage or forge. Though gold is no longer used as money, it continues to be prized for its value, and it used for investment worldwide. The Bank of England keeps around 400,000 gold bars in its vaults. […]

USD/JPY and AUD/USD Forecast — May 26th 2017

In this video, the Trader Guy looks at the currency pairs USD/JPY and AUD/USD for the May 26th session. USD/JPY — As you can see, we rallied a bit during the day with 112.00 offering resistance. If we can break above 112.50, then the market can go higher. Ultimately, I think if we can break down below the 110.00 level, then we fill the gap and go to 109.00. This is […]

EUR/USD and GBP/USD Forecast — May 26th 2017

In this video, the Trader Guy looks at the currency pairs EUR/USD and GBP/USD for the May 26th session. EUR/USD — As you can see, we initially tried to rally during the day on Thursday, but pulled back to form a less than impressive candle. However, even though there is a little bit of a shooting star candlestick being formed, I think we are clearly just consolidating. So, I expect the buyers to return. I think […]

OPEC Extends Deal But Oil Trades Lower

Oil prices lack momentum today. Analysts expect the commodity to end this trading week in negative territory. Thus, Brent Crude Oil retreated from the high at $54.50 per barrel to the level of $51.38 per barrel yesterday. As widely expected, the OPEC members decided to extend the deal on output curb for another 9 months. One of the reasons behind oil depreciation is that traders act according to the principle of buy the rumour and sell […]

Who Sets the Exchange Rate?

The exchange rate is the amount of one currency you can buy with another. In some countries, the central bank sets the exchange rate. The Bank of England is the UK's central bank, but it does not set the exchange rate for the pound. The exchange rate for the pound is decided by supply and demand. Just as the price of a train journey is higher at peak times when more people need to travel, the pound gets stronger […]
