Investment Profits point to Currencies and Commodities

If the big-buck profits from investment arms of banks are anything to go by, now is a good time to get into currencies and commodities trading!  Profits were posted in the last weeks, and both in the US and UK, big banks have seen a return to boom-time numbers.  Most of them have said the best results came from their investment arms, so can individual (or retail) investors get in on the act?

Indeed they can, and now is a great time to get cracking.  Foreign exchange platforms have seen high volumes of trade as retail investors have been flocking to invest.  The sterling has seen many bets on its increasing strength (thanks to the encouraging economic and financial data).  Analysts have said the outlook for the pound seems good in the medium-term.

If you do not have a massive amount of capital set aside for investment, why not start with spread betting?  This is a relatively straightforward to bet on the movement of currencies and commodities.  Opening a position can cost from as little as £1.  It is a fairly risky way to trade given the volatility of the market, but with a good adviser and a bit of background research you could go a long way.
