What Is the World Markets Week?
The third week of February marks the World Markets Week. This is a week where all major financial markets are closed, and world markets trade only during this week. The main focus for traders on this week is going to be currency trading, and the other markets that do not involve currencies will also close out. Traders have been preparing for this event by getting in their accounts and watching the charts, and making sure they know when they should make a stop or a move.
If you have not already, you need to open some World Markets accounts now. This is because this week marks the official start of the springtime equities year. In previous years, it has only been in January that the world markets really opened up, so the chances of people trading in the open is really slim. However, it looks like with the new holidays in February, that may change. So if you haven’t traded any stocks by this time, now is definitely the time to get started!
Traders that want to take advantage of the high level of liquidity in February should start putting their money into futures trading. There is a huge amount of volatility in the futures markets, and this is exactly what an experienced trader can capitalize off of. You will see the volatility going to higher levels as the weeks goes by, and the prices of commodities will continue to climb. If you have already traded in the futures markets, then now is the time to use them to your advantage and get in on the ground floor of this trading opportunity.
