Importance Of Interest Rates

Too many Retail traders think that technical analysis alone will save them from being in the majority of traders who lose money. Unfortunately this is not the case, Mike and Rory uncover the importance of understanding how interest rates impact Forex, equities, indices, fixed income and all other markets.

Understand interest rates, interest rate differentials and carry trades can automatically by default give a bias to a certain FX fair, at least in the mid to long term. Mike explains in the podcast how helps build a strong foundation for growing a trade idea into an actionable idea.

Rory shares his thoughts on how interest rates impact individual equites from understanding how companies use debt to leverage themselves to more exposure to understanding how debt to cash ratios which are too high can negatively impact the business in a high interest rate environment.

The blokes look at both scenarios of the positives and negatives of higher interest rates for fixed income and the raging market that is currently taking place across bonds.
