Forex online Market repels rush, it's a market where you dive into its depth after comprehending from the very scratch. In as much as Trading pays massively, it, also, takes massively. 

To have a full grasp of what Forex entails, let's look into an example of possible event. 

If Mr A visits a country where Euro is its dominating currency, and he wants to purchase goods from a country where Dollar is its dominating currency; Guess what he should do! 

Okay, you've got an idea! 

Mr A has to exchange Euro, which he has, for Dollar, which he needs, meeting the equivalent in dollars of what he desires to purchase. 

This gives an idea, right? 

You'll understand immensely as you read on. 

In Forex, considering basics, one thing you wouldn't neglect to understand is the underlining meaning of a Currency Pair. As you commence your dealings with Foreign Exchange Market, you will have the Currency Pair(s) flashing in your face, almost all the time. So, it's worth giving a bit of your time to study about. 

Currency Pairs is... 

Hold on, make sure you have digested the above statements. 

Moving forward, I'll, in brief details, show you the majorly used terminologies, which you must master to have a direction in Forex. 

Terminologies Used In Forex:

PIPS: Pips, being one of the determining factors of your earnings in Forex online, is the difference in currencies exchange rate, in other words, it's the measurement of price movement.

Equivocally, pips is an acronym for "Percentage in Point".

Furthermore, exchange rate of most currencies, for example, pound and dollar (GBP/USD), as people think, has a 2 decimal place, 2 units, value.
Let's say: 1.42!

But, to rightly contrast that, Foreign exchange has 4 units after the decimal point, e.g., 1.4200. The last number, which is 0, is the pip.

Therefore, if the value of the currency pair increases from 1.4200 to 1.4201, it indicates that it has increased by a single pip.

Understanding the rise of the value of a currency pair points out the amount of pips which accrues profit. 

When the value of a currency pair is seen as 5 units after the decimal point, the last number is a fractional pip or pipette. 

CROSS CURRENCY PAIR: A cross currency pair is identified when a currency pair doesn't involve the U.S dollar. Pertaining to cross currency pair, one doesn't have to exchange the currencies to American dollars for a foreign currency to be traded for another. 

CURRENCY PAIR: A currency pair, as the name implies, is the presence of specifically two currencies to perform buying and selling simultaneously, and vise versa. You should know this: Forex is always quoted in pairs, currency pairs. 

Still on currency pair, there's a name given to each currency found in the pair, from left to right. E.g.: (GBP/AUD).

Base Currency: This is the first currency, from the left, found or quoted in a currency pair; it can also be called domestic or accounting currency. 

Quote Currency: The second currency quoted in a currency pair in forex online. In a direct quote, the quote currency is the foreign currency. The quote currency is the domestic currency in an indirect quote. It, also, is known as the "secondary currency" or "counter currency". 

BID: To purchase the base currency in a currency pair, the Bid is the amount which the market maker is willing to pay.

GOING LONG & GOING SHORT: This basically mean to purchase a currency pair, which involves buying the base currency and selling the counter currency. While Going Short is the opposite of going long, going short involves selling the base currency and buying the counter currency.

SPREAD: The spread consists of the difference between the bid or purchase price and the offer or sale price provided by a market maker. The tighter the bid-offer spread made by the market maker, the better the price usually seems to their customer.

LEVERAGE: The ratio of the amount of money on deposit you need for a given transaction size. Leverage is usually quoted as a ratio such as 1:50 which means that you will need $100 on deposit to control a trading position of $5,000.

LOT SIZE: The minimum trading unit for a forex broker account. The lot size is usually 100,000 base currency units for Standard accounts, 10,000 base currency units for Mini accounts and 1,000 base currency units for Micro accounts.

MARGIN: The amount of money you need to have on deposit with a forex broker to make a forex trade in a certain amount. If your leverage ratio is 1:50 then you need to have $100 of margin on deposit to trade a forex position with a $5,000 notional amount.

Students of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), on Monday staged a peaceful protest against the institution’s directive preventing students who had not paid their school fees from sitting for the ongoing first semester examination.

The students, who took to the Oye-Ikole highway, locked down the highway for hours before returning to the main gate of the institution to continue the protest.

One of the protesters, who spoke with newsmen said that some students were denied access to the examination hall on May 10 inspite of the fact that the deadline for the payment of school fees had not lapsed.

The institution’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Godfrey Badji said that some students who had not fully paid their school fees were the ones protesting.

He said:-

According to him, the institution’s management had directed that those who had not completed payment of their school fees should not sit for the examination.

“While implementing this directive, some students who had not paid their school fees were not allowed to participate in the ongoing semester examination.

“This is the reason why those students affected have resorted to protest this morning,”

It can be recalled that FUOYE was closed down indefinitely by the school management after students of the institution clashed with Okada riders in the month of March.

‘Nigeria’s Agricultural Revolution Is Still On Course’ – President Buhari

President Buhari who is currently in Auyo, Jigawa State has declared that Nigeria’s agricultural revolution is real and on the course.

Speaking at an event to mark the commencement of the rehabilitation and expansion of the 6,000-hectare Hadejia Valley irrigation project, President Buhari assured Nigerians that his administration would sustain the positive momentum in the sector by implementing the right policies and providing the needed financial resources for people-oriented projects.

The President, who is in Jigawa State for a two-day working visit, expressed delight that the Federal Government’s economic diversification and inclusive growth programmes were yielding positive results, particularly in key food-producing states.

He applauded the World Bank’s assistance to the project, which when completed would increase water availability for all-season farming in the State and beyond.

Also speaking, the Minister of Water Resources, Alhaji Suleiman Adamu explained that works on the Phase One of the projects which started in the early eighties during the administration of President Shehu Shagari and received some funding under the Petroleum Special Trust Fund had suffered frequent abandonment due to lack of funds.

Adamu said with N9.6 billion allocated under the $495 million World Bank-assisted Transforming Irrigation Management in Nigeria (TRIMMING) project in five different irrigation locations in Nigeria, the project would be completed by 2021.

‘‘By the time the project is finished in three years, there would be about 6,000 hectares of farmland and the Jigawa State Government also plans to key into the project that will benefit over 25,000 farmers,’’ the Minister said.

In Jigawa, the President commissioned the 42-kilometer Tasheguwa-Guri Road and the 32-kilometer Abunabo-Kadira-Guri road constructed by the State government to facilitate easier movement and evacuation of farm produce.

President Buhari also commissioned the 250,000 solar- powered water supply scheme. The project is one out of nine of such projects which will add nine million liters to daily water supply in Dutse and environs.

Fulani Herdsmen & Farmers In Enugu Strike Peace Deal (See Details)

Cattle breeders and farmers in Enugu have entered into an agreement that will ensure peaceful co-existence.

The meeting was attended by leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Enugu State chapter of All Farmers Association of Nigeria (AFAN) and other stakeholders.

Briefing reporters, Southeast Chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Alhaji Gidado Siddiki, said the gathering was strategic to foster peace.

He said the meeting was to dispel insinuations that herders were in the state to terrorise host communities.

“The essence of this meeting is to bring farmers and herders together for interaction so that we will know ourselves as well as dispel rumour that we are here to terrorise.

“We are here to feed our cattle. This meeting will bring us together so that farmers will feel at home when they see cattle breeders.

“The cattle breeders will equally take members of their host communities as their brothers and sisters,” Siddiki said.

He said the meeting was attended by state chairmen of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association in the region.

“Since most of the grazers migrate from one state to the other, we brought state chairmen here.

“The essence is to inform them that whenever something happens and it involves somebody that comes from another state, I will call the chairman to resolve it.

“The agreement is that we will promote peace between ourselves through this type of meeting, which will be held regularly,” Siddiki said.

He said any issue beyond the groups’ leaders would be directed to the Central Peace Committee at the state level.

“We also made it known that we have a Peace and Security Committee at the Government House.

“Whenever something we cannot resolve happens at the local level, we take it to the committee for final decision,” Siddiki said.

AFAN’s Chairman Mr. Sunny Watarali said the meeting ushered in better understanding between the groups.

He noted that both groups need to respect the culture and tradition of each other.

Watarali said host communities would not allow cows messed up their source of drinking water.

“The grey areas have been sorted out. Both parties are to respect each other; respect the culture.

“For example, you do not carry cows to urinate in the river. This is the source of drinking water.

“Again, if for any reason the cow does anything wrong, our people should be patient and report, rather than resorting to self-help.

“If we can do that, such mutuality will bring about better understanding and peace,” he said.

Watarali said the meeting was expected to be replicated in rural areas.

“Subsequent meeting will be held at local governments where farmers live.

“I believe if we do that, we will achieve peace,” he said

Crude Oil Prices Race To $80

Oil prices steadied below 3-1/2 year highs yesterday as resistance emerged in Europe and Asia to U.S. sanctions against major crude exporter Iran, while rising U.S. drilling pointed to higher North American production.

Brent crude was up 20 cents at 77.32 dollars a barrel by 1315 GMT and U.S. light crude rose 10 cents to 70.80 dollars.

Both oil futures contracts hit their highest since November 2014 last week at 78 dollars and 71.89 dollars a barrel, respectively as markets anticipated a sharp fall in Iranian crude supply once U.S. sanctions bite later this year.

It is unclear how hard U.S. sanctions will hit Iran’s oil industry. A lot will depend on how other major oil consumers respond to Washington’s action against Tehran, which will take effect in November.

China, France, Russia, Britain, Germany and Iran all remain in the nuclear accord that placed controls on Iran’s nuclear programme and led to a relaxation of economic sanctions against Iran and companies doing business there.

The surge in oil prices comes at a time of tight supply amid record Asian demand and voluntary output restraint by the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and non-OPEC producers, including Russia.

A bride has been spotted ‘abandoning’ her husband for Tobi when the latter stormed their wedding recently.

Tobi who was among the final 5 contenders at the Big Brother Naija reality show, is popular in Nigeria especially among the women who feel that he is one of the most handsome housemates during the show.
In this video, which is already trending online, the bride who is apparently a very big fan of Tobi, went wild with excitement when she saw the young man and rushed to meet him. She is seen screaming his name out several times and acting like she wanted him to sweep her off her feet.
Watch the video below:-
Social media users who watched the video are however not pleased with the young lady whom they feel was disrespecting her husband by her public show of excitement for another man during her own wedding.
Many Nigerians on social media are of the opinion that the husband would definitely not be happy with his bride and would chide her at home.
