The risk now is to stay out of the markets

Technology allowed to take advantage of the volatility generated by the 'super Wednesday'

The main currency trading platforms have had a week of strong activity thanks to the 'super Wednesday', although part of the mystery, the one that affected the activation of Article 50 in the United Kingdom has not been carried out.

Finally, although the British premier learned on Tuesday that the House of Commons was giving the green light to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, which allowed the negotiations to officially start to leave the European Union, a government spokesman said that the instrument will not be called until, at least, next week.

The second political point on Wednesday was the general elections in the Netherlands, where the extreme right of the populist Gert Wilders could win. The results, however, generated volatility in the euro, but little more because the market discounted that Wilders would not govern, even winning the elections, and that the country would have a coalition government, more or less as it happens now, despite that the tensions with Turkey of the previous days favored Wilders.

Elections in France continued to roll, with all eyes on Marine Le Pen's National Front and the slow advance of Emmanuel Macron's moderate right, following the fall from grace of François Fillon. And as for the expected rate hike in the United States, there was nothing new. The Federal Reserve raised the price of money 0,25%, as expected and left rates in the 0,75% -1% range.

Thus, with Super Wednesday behind, investors are once again establishing a strategy in the currency market through trading platforms, waiting for news in France next week and macro data in Europe and the United States that allow entry and exit the euro-dollar with gains.

For this, it is essential to have a real-time tool. Not only to operate with solvency in the currency market, but to know the rumors and the data that the market continuously throws up and that only the best apps for trading platforms according to the expert opinions, such as iFOREX, they can offer.

Well, as analysts say, with less political tension in Europe and the confirmed rate hike, investors will return to the classic variables that govern the market: macro data and business results. And the former are getting better and better in the Old Continent and, the latter, have been aggressively revised for the better after the results for 2016 were already known.

According to Bloomberg, earnings per share for 2017 in the Eurostoxx 50 index rises to 32,3% from 10,4% previously, and that of the S&P 500, from 12,3% to 19,1%, therefore, With macro in favor and profits on the rise, stocks will inevitably rise. Busy times ahead for the apps of the best trading platforms

    I don't quite understand what the blog post about Linux has to do with it.
    Taking the opportunity to also ask, is there an app for trading in linux?
