What does a Forex Pip Mean?

A pip, that’s a term you need to understand well if you are thinking of going into forex trading. It is a term used by traders to measure how much they have earned or lost in their trades. Seems not to be very important compared to other forex terms such forex indicators or leverage, but not knowing what pips mean to a trade can be costly. Forex trading is normally done in pairs. The second of the currency pairs being traded is the quote price. This means that in the currency pairs EUR/USD, the US dollar will be the quote price. The price of this currency pair will be what the present value of the US Dollar is against 1 Euro, for example $ 1.70 or 17000. You will notice that the quote price has to zeros added. The two zeros stands for the quantity of the currency pair to be traded. And the forex pip will be the measure, the smallest measure, of change or movement in the price to the quote.  One pip will be equivalent to 0001.  In the example given, if the 17000 price changes to 1070 you would have gained 10 pips. How do you calculate earnings using the pips? There is what traders call as $ 100,000 standard lots, so if you gained 100 pips trading this lot your earnings will be $ 1,000. The currency quote will vary, of course. Sometimes it will be USD/Euro. The same process of calculating movements and earning will be the same. But this time it’s the price of the Euro will be used.  The formulas may...

So What Does Bespoke Really Mean?

In June 2008, tailors on the Savile Row lost a legal battle over their right to use the word bespoke to refer exclusively to suits that had been made by hand. The Advertising Standards Authority ruling meant that mass market retailers could sell machine made suits at a fraction of the cost. With the blurring of the boundaries a definitive definition is elusive, here are the facts. The majority of men buy off the peg suits. An off the peg suit is cut off a block (a standard pattern typically categorised by a chest measurement e.g. 38). Off the peg suits are cheap because they can be easily manufactured in large numbers. Similarly off the peg shirts are also cut off a block but this time they are categorised by a neck measurement. Its amazing when you think about it, just think how people vary in size from the neck down! Made-to-measure suits are the halfway house between off the peg and bespoke. Like off the peg, made-to-measure suits are also cut off a block but in this case the block can be adjusted to fit the client. The fact the made-to-measure suit is made individually means that the client can also choose the fabric, and style of the suit enabling as much personalisation as one might expect in a bespoke suit. Made-to-measure is becoming increasingly popular as advances in laser cutting technology and manufacturing capabilities enables exceptional accuracy and better value. Mathieson & Brooke Tailors Ltd make predominantly made-to-measure suits although we can make bespoke suits on request. We feel very strongly about maintaining this differentiation despite the...

Being Sued, What Does It Mean?

Being in a court of law and going before a judge can be a scary prospect. This is particularly true if you have been named the defendant in the case. Being a defendant is not limited to a criminal case. There are defendants in civil cases as well. Being a defendant simply means that you must respond to a complaint or legal charge against you. Your neighbor might be asking for damages if the large tree in your yard fell onto his car parked in the driveway. If you dont agree with his claims, he can then file a lawsuit asking the court to award him the damages, thus forcing your hand in paying him what he thinks hes owed. Most lawsuits dont go to trial. Mediation is a process by which both parties can talk about the issue and hopefully come to a mutually satisfying agreement. The defendant may choose to file whats called a third party complaint. As an example, if you hired a treat trimming service that was supposed to trim the tree and it was done improperly, you might be able to prove some liability on their part. You could argue that had the trimming been done properly, it would not have fallen on your neighbors car. Any legal proceeding can become a very complex process that only an attorney will be able to decipher. Many people make the mistake of attempting to represent themselves in a lawsuit. Their ignorance of the law can often put them at a large disadvantage, causing them to be responsible for damages that they might legally have a defense...
