Last month I was given the opportunity to speak at the Forex Trading Conference. I chose to speak about things I wish I’d known when I started trading – my first days of trading.

With all of the conflicts going on in the world at the moment, Gaza under attack, Syria still in turmoil and also, the downing of a commercial airliner over Ukraine airspace, it seems prudent to understand what effect these various conflicts have on the market, from either a risk management or trading point of view.
In terms of safe haven asset effects, it was the latest issue arising in Ukraine that had the biggest effect so far. With the latest situation, involving the shooting down of a commercial Malaysian airliner by apparent pro Russian Ukraine separatists, the safe haven/risk-off dynamic played nicely in the hands of savvy traders.
