News of forex broker rating. PAMM accounts have entered the lives of traders and investors suddenly and powerfully, as they managed to involve into work at forex market even those who… do not know how to trade here. Due to PAMM accounts, even those investors that are far from technical and fundamental analysis receive a very simple and clear way for their direct and often highly profitable investments: from the long list of best traders they are to choose the ones, whose results they find satisfactory and invest their means into his account. In such a case (provided that such warranty is given by a broker company) gained profit will be automatically distributed between trader and investor on a monthly basis.

Convenient? Certainly, yes. Honestly? Let us say that it is so in the majority of cases, although broker companies that suggest PAMM accounts may have a lot of nuances, and traders and investors may have different attitude to these DCs. So, who are the best brokers for forex investors? What are the peculiarities of their services and are there any differences between them? New rating of Masterforex-V Academy is supposed to give answers to these questions in the nomination “Best PAMM accounts of forex brokers in 2012”.

Simple principles of relations between traders and investors while working with PAMM accounts

PAMM (Percent Allocation Management Module) is a trading account consisting of one or several accounts, which is used by professional managing trader for forex or stock exchange trade, and to profit account of which any investor may add, enabling the managing trader to earn profit for himself and for investors.

Thus, if a managing trader
- earns profit, it is distributed among all investors of single PAMM account depending on their share in this account;
- trades at a loss, all investors of PAMM account lose money.

Managing trader gains his percent only from profit. Investor’s stop-loss limit (for example, 15%-25%) is set at the PAMM account of a broker company. If a managing trader experiences one loss after another, his trade will be stopped at the point of stop-loss or investor may withdraw his means much earlier.

Any investment is always accompanied by risk, explained in his interview to “Market Leader” Evgeny Olkhovski (Canada), well-known financial experts of Masterforex-V Academy. However, it is not a rare occurrence to see people that are to apt to risky transactions choose PAMM accounts and invest large sums in them, having believed in super profit and paying no attention to logics and common sense.

“However, one should remember,” continues Evgeny Olkhovski, “the higher is the promised profit from PAMM account, the higher is the risk of loss. Companies promising high profit with minimal risk are to be dealt with cautiously.

PAMM account is a highly risky investment. No loss can be guaranteed, as the account is managed by an ordinary trader, who is neither secured from losing operations. Therefore, nobody can guarantee high profit or secure from the loss of a part or even all invested means,” concluded the financial expert, “but there is a number of rules that are to be followed by any investor when investing into PAMM account.

The first rule concerns the choice of forex broker.”

For instance, Russia and China are already cooperating in terms of currency swaps.  He urged the U.S. authorities to pay attention to the fact that the so-called BRICS members are acting and do not want to want when the USA tells them what to do. This is confirmed by the latest BRICS summit in Russia. It seems that Putin is initiating a dialog to join forces when fighting the crisis. According to Mr. Kerry, it is important to keep in mind that all that is happening amid the current global market, which is changing since the rivalry never ends and most people are fed up with the system established after World War II. They thing the system is unfair and it doesn’t take into account their needs and interests.
