What You Will Find in the Forex Section
A Strong Outlook on a Seemingly Confusing Financial Instrument
There are a number of buzzwords that fly around when Forex is the topic of discussion. For those who don’t have a strong background in this field, it can be daunting to wade through all the jargon. With the potential of high gains comes an equal potential for losses. It is critical to do a thorough investigation of what is on offer before blindly following just anyone who hands out their business card. This segment takes a look at the online platforms that offer Forex products to the general public. We sift through all the information to let consumers know what they’re letting themselves in for.
Although these reviews are in no way intended to be deemed as advice, it does provide helpful information to allow customers to weigh up their options. The reviews take a look at the tiny details to ensure that consumers have all the information they need to make their decision. They also assist customers with an understanding of the benefits and risks.
At the turn of the 19th century, the Gold Standard System was deemed to be the foundation of Forex. A lot has changed since those days but the intention behind the system remains fundamentally the same. Just as the financial institutions and brokerages need to keep up with the times, it is equally important for consumers to stay on top of latest developments to have a better understanding of the markets.
What Will You Find in the Forex Section?
There are a few terms traders will need to familiarize themselves with before taking the plunge. In these reviews, we break down the information into understandable terms to make the process a little simpler. Some of the terms to master include OTC (over-the-counter), interbank market, liquidity, volatility, exchange rates, and leverage. As the writer works through the various offerings, these terms will become a little clearer. The reviews are not intended to be instructional pieces or tutorials, but rather a guide to be used alongside these materials.
Possibly one of the biggest aspects to consider when taking up Forex as a hobby or means to increase wealth is that it never sleeps. Traders from across the world are constantly buying and selling position to ensure they receive the maximum benefit. This means that a lot can change in the space of a few hours. In fact, things change in a matter of minutes.
Who Provides These Reviews?
Critical-reviews.com has a staff of writers that have industry experience in the relevant categories. A variety of writers contribute to sections such as Money, e-Sports, Gambling, Travel, and more. The writers have been exposed to these categories and have hands-on experience. It is their goal to find the best institutions and products out there and provide readers with honest reviews. Each writer is tasked with the goal to provide insightful information into the inner workings of an institution or product. They have no ties to the institution, which means fair reviews are the order of the day. There is no reason to skip over the nasties as there is no affiliation with these institutions.
Why Are Consumers Willing To Risk This Product?
There is a psychological aspect of Forex trading that forces clients to consider overall market conditions. This includes political decisions, buying power, and aspects that will force the general markets to change. Although this is not an exact science as there are many factors that affect the markets, many have been able to grow their assets with Forex.
In order for traders to be successful in their Forex strategies, they will need to immerse themselves in the various landscapes that could affect the exchange rate. Sometimes, a drop in the exchange rate can happen through ties one country has with another. For instance, Brexit not only affected the Pound Sterlin but many other currencies as well. A keen understanding of local and world news will assist traders in their buying and selling strategies.
With Forex, there is high risk and consumers are recommended to do their research before investing large amounts of money. There are many Forex products out there that allow mock trading to take place until consumers get the hang of it.
What We Look For In A Good Forex Site
The first thing that makes us a little queasy, is the number of adverts that run for this particular product. This makes it very hard for the man on the street to get a fair understanding of who the best Forex platforms on the market are. Before signing up to live trading we recommend traders to check if the site has a mock trading aspect to it. This, to us, is a good indication that the site gears towards creating successful traders.
Furthermore, not all Forex sites provide sufficient access to great Forex pairs. Customers often have to deal with only the major ones which often leaves developing markets out of the loop. Some of the currencies that experience bursts of growth include the BRICS countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. The BRICS summit in September 2017 also has special guests from Egypt, Tajikistan, Kenya, Thailand, and Mexico in attendance. With currency pairs only taking place in United States Dollar, Pound Sterling, Japanese Yen, Euro, Swiss Franc, and Canadian and Australian Dollars, they leave traders out of massive growth opportunities. We specifically look for Forex sites that have a healthy mix of Forex pairs that transcend the major ones. Although the risk might increase, there is greater diversity.
Other Aspects We Consider When Doing A Review
Sometimes, some of the best entry-level trading takes place on sites that offer other products too, such as the major online Gambling sites. They provide the perfect mix of currency pairs and allow users to dip their toes into the great Forex ponds. Although we may not do a full review just on the Forex side of these sites, we do recommend beginners to take a look once they’ve done some basic training.
The site’s reputation is another aspect that we take a strong look at. Typical complaints that customers tend to have of bad sites include deals that aren’t concluded in time, sales or purchases that get stuck. There is also the inability to access their funds and exorbitant, undisclosed fees. We take a closer look at the complaint trend, and where needed, may even adjust a rating to reflect the new information.
Our Goal for Our Readers
It’s not every day that the average consumer will have an interest in Forex trading, but when they do, we hope to right there with them for a great experience. This means taking the time to explain the basics of trading to consumers. These basics will allow consumers to have an understanding of why the rating we grant a particular platform is what it is. We wish to steer them towards the sites that provide sufficient information. They should also provide online assistance in the form of Forex signals to help consumers with their trades.
We also want to ensure that customers are aware of what to avoid. The sites that are just out there to make money without regard for their traders. It is also imperative that they don't rope consumers into live trading without prior experience or even knowledge of what to expect. If we happen to come across these sites, the rating will reflect this accordingly.
The critical-reviews.com Team
The team ranges from techno geeks, gaming fanatics, and financial fundis all the way the wandering traveler. These writers harness years of experience and encounters to provide readers with accurate information.

Consumer satisfaction is our top priority, which means we delve a little deeper to uncover the finer details. The team is continuously expanding to provide readers with a greater scope of topics.
Also, we write these reviews to provide detailed information and the rating system is a fair process used across the range.

Some products are fantastic and some institutions are team players and we look forward to those reviews. A perfect ten is a well-deserved score.
From time to time, we will also take a look at things that tend to shake up the markets. For instance, world events such as the massive market crash of 2008, Brexit, and Gaming Law Reviews. These are all relevant to our readers and our goal is to keep them informed. We also reserve the right to edit a review if new information comes to light, which could influence the rating positively or negatively. Overall, this should be the melting pot of information for readers across the world.
