Trading currencies has been a method of making money, ever since currencies came into existence. But in the past, the major currency trading market, known as Forex was not available for everyone as it is now. It was restricted only for the major players such as banks and other financial institutions. Well, this is all history, because now you have the chance to enter this market with as minimum as $250, through the various online broker companies offering mini-accounts.

Software platforms vary, but there several forex currency pairs that dominate the market. Now remember that in this business, it’s all about currency pairs – USD/EUR, USD/JPN, USD/GPB, USD/CHF, and practically all types of combinations of the various currencies in the world. In the world of forex, you work with forex currency pairs. You buy one currency by selling another, for example you buy Euro by selling your US dollars, with the obvious idea of the Euro climbing against the dollar, so at the end of the day, you will be able to get more USD when you sell your EUR. In the context of all those currency pairs, the ones that truly dominate the market, and are responsible for about 80% of all transactions are the so called “major pairs” – Euro vs U.S. Dollar, US Dollar vs Japanese Yen, US Dollar vs Swiss Franc, and US Dollar vs British Pound.

currencyCertain Forex currency trading strategies can be applied to increase your chances of success, but nevertheless, we are talking about chances here. Risk is always a factor on the FX market. Therefore, you must be responsible. Lots of money could be made and lost at the same time, if things go in the wrong direction. Investors make assumptions, analysis, charts, trust their intuition, but the bottom line is that no trading system is perfect and unexpected events can occur all the time, such as the Katrina hurricane, or 9/11. Such events affect the market and the values of certain currencies. The forex currency pairs are influenced by political and economical factors. Interest rates and inflation rates are part of the economical aspect. Sometimes, entire governments make deals on the Forex market in order to change the value of their national currency. For example, the US government often employs a policy of keeping the USD low vs the EUR (the dollar is dropping against the euro) so that in Europe, goods produced in the US can be cheaper, and therefore, more demanded on the European market.

An interesting term that you will often hear is “leverage”. The leverage allows you to operate with cash much larger than you actually in your account. If the leverage on your account is 10:1, that means that with $250 you virtually have $2500 to buy and sell with.

Just in the United States, companies spend over 250 Billion dollars a year trying to convince consumers to buy their products and services. That’s a lot of money … And while the majority of it is spent on advertising, a portion is devoted to research. You see, understanding how people think and shop, why they buy certain products, etc. ultimately helps companies improve their products and services and make THEM more money. Knowing this, companies are willing to pay people up to $150 an hour for their opinions. Eventually, they know they will come out ahead and generate more profits for themselves.

Getting Started

moneyThe most difficult part about making money with paid surveys is finding and sorting through all the market research programs out there. And some of them are “scams” – they don’t pay as promised, they bombard you with more advertising, their telemarketers call you during dinner, etc. It would take you months to find, evaluate, and keep track of all the good opportunities. These websites have done the research for you and are constantly updating their databases of companies in need of people to take online surveys. This will save you a tremendous amount of time, hassle, and “trial and error” versus trying to do it all yourself. In addition, these members-only websites often provide tips, tricks, and strategies that will help you to make more money, as quickly and as easily as possible.

Obviously not everyone can take all the surveys. If you are father who works all day you would not quality for a survey about stay at home moms or daily child care. A women would not quality for a survey about men’s purchasing habits or say views about a men’s magazine. Some surveys are very general, anyone can take them (for example, what type of pain medication do you take when you get a headache). Some surveys will be specific and need someone from the targeted sex, age, work, or lifestyle.

Once you sign-up you can get started immediately. This is not to say you will be offered surveys or make money within an hour after joining. Some people start receiving surveys within a few of hours, but the average wait is usually at least a few days. It really depends on your “profile”, and which companies you register with. Keep in mind that many market research companies only send out 1-2 surveys a month. With these it will take at least a few weeks before you are entered into their system and start receiving surveys from them, depending on when you register. It’s crucial to register with as many as you can – you will NOT make a lot of money from any one company. You will be introduced you to 100s of companies, and the more you register with the more surveys you can take. It’s that simple. Once you get going you can do surveys every day.
