Fundamental analysis estimates various factors that influence the rates of currencies and other financial assets. In other words, this type of analysis studies politics and economy of the countries, which currencies were chosen as a trading instrument. Traders closely follow effects of global financial events, assess economic and political news of different countries, and analyze statements of central banks’ heads and officials.

Investments in the assets of a country are usually made in the local currency. Thus, the demand for the currency increases and its price also rises. Besides, there are economic indicators, thanks to which traders can evaluate strength of the country’s economy. Such indicators (reports) are released by governments or independent experts.

Volume has stronger signals when the price is in an uptrend and is endorsing the upward move, so the volume is moving to the upside. On the other hand, if the trend is bearish and the volume is moving to the upside then is confirming the bearish trend.

I like to position trade myself. I personally don't like sitting in front of a computer for 5 hours straight just to pull in a few pips at a time. I only look at charts maybe twice a day and do research a couple of times a week. That's all and so far it's working out pretty well for me
