Goldilocks’ Comments and Global Economic News Sunday Evening 1-21-24


Good evening ,

“When you trade FX forwards, you are agreeing to trade a currency pair at a set price on a set date in the future. This means you intend to buy one currency (base currency) and sell another (quote currency)at a predetermined price because you believe one of the currencies will strengthen against the other by a specific date.”

Here we have it. It looks like traders are anticipating currency changes.

Let’s look at a couple of reports:
1. “CLS REPORTS METEORIC 67.8% SURGE IN FX FORWARDS TRADING”

2. “CLS has reported a significant uptick in foreign exchange trading activity for December 2023.”

This is a huge shift for traders. Most traders stay away from Forex opportunities because there is far more to be made in the rest of the market.

Something is changing to create this kind of shift in the minds of investors who usually stay away from this sector of the market.   Finance Feeds    IG Link

For the last 15 years, people have been spending their money on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. This has led to a significant rise in money leaving the banking system.

Bringing Bitcoin into the markets and soon other tokenized assets backed by a real value such as gold will add value to our assets and banking system that supports these new digitized portfolios.

Currently, money is coming back to the banks through a new digital asset-based trading system with spot Bitcoin ETF being the first to step into the game.

The difference is going to be in the area of our new virtual assets having a real-world value going forward with the ability for AI and crypto networks to standardize the protocols inside our banking system under a fixed value of gold and other commodities.

This move from a fiat-based debt system to a sound money system gives the new QFS real numbers to work with in computing trades between countries and Cross-border International Trading and Bank the Bank transfers.

Standard protocols will provide security and efficiency and the ability to move our money at the push of a button.     Investopedia Link
