    Around 70%-90% of all forex transactions are speculative which means that the buyer or seller of the currency has no actual plans of actual delivery of the currency. The transactions were purely made on speculation that price values would change and profits would be gained.

    80% of trading volume is accounted for by the 10 most active traders.

    The above forex statistics show that forex trading is on the rise. And that more and more people are turning to forex trading as a speculative investment alternative. So read on and learn how you can participate in this highly lucrative investment alternative available today.

  5. A recent Bloomberg survey of 36 bankers, farmers, and analysts has added some context to to these claims, suggesting that record acreages of planting for corn, wheat, and soybeans are expected across the US, with an addition of 226.9 million acres in 2012, the biggest increase since 1984.

    Responding to high commodity prices, farmers appear eager to take advantage of high corn and wheat prices while they remain. “We’re going to plant the most corn acres ever,” said North Dakota corn farmer David Kopseng. “I’ve been buying some more land and renting more because of corn’s profitability. It’s a great time to be a farmer in North Dakota.”

    Corn crops in Illinois, Iowa, and North Dakota typically receive relatively high levels of potash application per acre. According the USDA, 81, 68, and 53 percent of corn crops respectively received potash application in 2010.

    Purdue University agronomist Bob Nielsen has suggested that while weather extremes are important for understanding potential yield impacts on crops such as corn, there are “a lot of common-sense agronomic principles that work together to minimize the usual crop stresses that occur every year and allow the crop to better tolerate uncontrollable weather stresses.”

  6. Causes of seasonal trends

    Why do stock indices rise at the turn of the year, while falling in August and September? Isn’t that just coincidence? – Questions such as this arise whenever seasonality is studied for the first time. Because only if the stock market’s past movements was seasonally based and not coincidental, can seasonality then be considered a useable forecasting instrument.

    In fact there are reasons behind seasonal trends. Stock funds try to improve year-end results by pushing stock prices higher. Other reasons include interest payments in December, because year-end bond coupon payments flow partially into the stock market.

    The holiday effect (christmas, year-end) also plays a role. Moods are generally positive and many investors use the time-off to make investment decisions. These factors influence the course of prices and lead to seasonal patterns, which investors can utilise.

    Each part of the year has a unique reason for its seasonal tendency, for example the rally in autumn or the market strength at the beginning of the year. Additionally every market has its unique reasons for seasonal behaviour. For instance changes in interest rate policy play little role in the agricultural markets whereas harvest time does.

    But just as we cannot always identify the reasons for a price move, we also cannot always know the actual reasons behind seasonal patterns. The reasons most often attributed to seasonal trends are among others:

    - Payments in specific seasons (i.e., at year-end)
    - Sentiment at certain times of the year (i.e., holidays)
    - Aberrations in financial reporting (i.e., investment funds’ financial statements)
    - Harvest time
    - Heating season
