PAMM accounts: Whose Service is Better?

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.”

Who are best and worst brokers providing PAMM accounts for forex market investors?

At present there are over 20 broker companies that suggest PAMM account to investors at forex market, as explained by Evgeny Olkhovski. He said that that Masterforex-V Academy has decided to help investors that are planning to invest in PAMM accounts and make them less risky by finding out the opinion of traders and investors about PAMM accounts of Forex brokers. For this purpose Academy is starting a new rating vote for “Best PAMM accounts of forex brokers”.

The table above shows brokers and DCs that are taking part in the new vote. Each contestant takes part in the general Forex broker rating of Masterforex-V Academy, where points on the left of each company’s logo serve as a basis for its starting points. At the top of the rating are five representatives of the higher league of forex broker rating: FIBO Group, ForexTrend, Dukascopy Bank SA, Alpari, and FX Open. They are followed by Grand Capital, FXDD, Lite Forex, ATC Brokers, FX Company, Instaforex, Ikon Group, Nord Markets, Tradex Capital, Hot Forex, EES FX ECN, and eForex. The table is closed by the brokers of the lower league, namely, ForexTime, Trading Point, FinFX, Axiory, and Broco.

The column to the right of the company’s logo shows total points received by a broker or a DC. Every vote "For" or "Against", which is given by a trader or investor to a broker company, raises or lowers the total number of starting points.

Amazing Denmark: what is so interesting about it for investors?



Will the Danish “Vikings” bury the Schengen and the EU? Breaking news about another unexpected threat for the EU came from Denmark. The thing is that Denmark decided to restore the borders with Germany and Sweden. Even though that the Danish authorities say Denmark is not going to abandon the Schengen Agreement (supposedly the border control will be restored to check suspicious vehicles), the West-European Association of Traders and Investors under Masterforex-V Academy doesn’t deny that it may finish off the Schengen Agreement and the whole idea of Europe without internal borders with all the ensuing consequences for investors.
A natural question arises: “Why was Denmark the first Schengen member to come up with this idea?” On the one hand Denmark has enough to lose but on the other hand it doesn’t need any problems from outside.

Nouriel Roubini: the 2nd wave of the global crisis is inevitable

The entire world is discussing another gloomy forecast made by Nouriel Roubini, a respected professor from the University of New York, who predicted the latest global crisis. Most economists around the world share Roubini’s point of view, saying that the 2nd wave is highly probable. But Roubini even specifies the time of another crisis - mid 2013.

However, Nouriel Roubini is not a prophet. Some of his forecasts failed. Previously he expected the 2


wave of the crisis to hit the world in 2009 and in 2010,

A.Lukashenko confirms Masterforex-V’s forecast. Will the world see the next wave of the global crisis?

The 2nd wave of the global crisis has been discussed in the world media for 2 years. In this respect Masterforex-V’s forecast look fairly interesting. According to the forecast, which was made in late 2009, the 2nd wave of the global crisis will probably start shortly after the devaluation of the Belarusian Ruble. The sensation is that 1.5 later Alexander Lukashenko, President of Belarus, practically confirmed the thesis. After the sharp devaluation of the Belarusian Ruble and considerable price hikes he said that Belarus was hit by the 2nd wave of the crisis.

For investors: how real is the dissolution of Spain, how will this hit the EU and Euro?
World news, investments. The situation in Spain continues to heat up every day, threatening to lead to the dissolution of the country. And if it had not been for the honoured victory of “Barcelona” in the most prestigious European football tournament – The League of Champions, May would have had all grounds to be called “a black month”. In Russian words “may” and “drudge” sound very much alike; therefore, our ancestors used to believe that “one should not be born or marry in May, for you will have to dodge for ages” Now politics know that elections (usually held in the world in autumn-winter period) should neither be scheduled for May, for a similar to Spanish force majeure may occur.

The US public debt is $15 trillion. What ate the perspectives of the US economy and currency?

The US Congress has rejected President Obama’s request to increase the limit of the US public debt. The legislators say the debt is too big to allow it to grow by $2.4 trillion more.


According to the experts of Masterforex-V Academy, it was hardly probable that the current membership of the Congress (the Republicans constitute the absolute majority) would help Barack Obama - a Democrat - to solve the problem. The political component of such a decision is on the surface.  The presidential elections are near (2012). That is why the opponents are trying to fail each other. However the struggle for the presidency cannot account for all the complexity and jeopardy of the current situation. Now Obama has 2 months to make the Congressmen change their minds. If he fails to do that, the US will have to technically default on its debt. Taking into account that about 30% of the US debt (over $4 trillion) belongs to foreign investors, the default may seriously affect the entire world.

What does the Congress demand from the President?
