In the last few years there has been a rapid growth in the number of people opening trading accounts in the world markets. There are many reasons for this, including the fact that there is a risk of losing money through online stock market trading, and also the growth of the FX market. It seems that the attraction to the World Markets is mainly due to the growth in the number of people that are unable to attend the traditional stock markets.

As a trader you have the option of buying and selling currencies from all over the world with the use of trading platforms and online trading tools. This means that you can sit at home and watch what happens in the world markets at any given moment. However, whilst you may enjoy making some profit as a result of your trades you will also need to factor in the management fee that is charged by the broker or company you are using to trade. The management fee is based on the number of pips that you make, and is usually a percentage of the entire market capital. So, if you were to trade five million pips and then had to wait a week for the management fee to be paid out you would lose a great deal of money – even if you did not place any trades during that time.

One of the newest forms of investing in the world markets is by using electronic wallets. Electronic Wallets are pieces of hardware, usually stored on a laptop, that hold multiple private key codes that unlock multiple currencies. There are two types of electronic wallets, the USB wallet and the App Password Wallet. The App Password wallet requires you to input a secret code into the personal keypad in order to access your currencies, whereas the USB wallet works by storing data in an embedded flash memory chip that cannot be accessed by other traders or brokers.
