Managing risks is one of the most important things that forex traders should learn. Most forex training programs include risk management in their discussions, and managing risks can involve either fundamental or technical analysis. A fundamental analysis refers to the dynamic evaluation of specific plans, unpredictable behaviors, and unanticipated events that affect the economy of a certain individual, business, organization or country. A fundamental analysis mainly focuses on social, political, and economic forces that drive the trends of the supply of and demand for currencies.

A forex training program on fundamental analysis will help you understand the different factors that fundamentalists pay attention to. These factors can include bank policies, government policies, overall economic trends, natural disasters, and social stability. A fundamental analysis can help much in developing mid-term to long-term investment decisions. Forex investors and traders must take note though that fundamental analysis will not help much in day trading because a fundamental analysis mainly evaluates major economic, social, and political forces.

Fundamental analyses involve different kinds of evaluations of macroeconomic factors. A fundamentalist makes use of different economic indicators of a certain country to predict a sensible valuation of the currency of that country. These economic indicators typically include GDP growth rates, interest rates, retail sales, and unemployment rates. A fundamental analysis can also involve an assessment of consumer price index, industrial production reports, and manufacturing production.

Newcomers to the foreign exchange market typically ask why there is a need for fundamental analysis. Fundamental analyses have been developed out of the fact that the economic condition of a certain country directly affects the performance of its currency in the foreign exchange world. This also makes it important for forex investors and traders to keep an eye on financial calendars released by different countries and private sectors. However, traders and investors must understand that macroeconomic factors are not the only drivers of the performance of specific currencies – the valuation of currencies is also affected by many other things like technical factors, and third party reports.

A good forex training program will show you how you can use fundamental analysis while trading. It will show you how to use economic calendars including when and where to get copies of them. It will also give you tips on how you can keep yourself informed of the economic indicators that are getting much of the market’s attention. Most importantly, it will help you understand the importance of knowing market expectations for data and whether or not expectations have been met.
