Choice of FX

Most popular form of foreign currency investment has been foreign currency deposit.But now FX is receiving attention for its low cost, mobility and investment efficiency that surpass foreign currency deposit.

Margin trades increases investment efficiency
(leverage effect)

In the case of foreign currency deposit, when dollar yen rate is at 100, you need 10 million yen to make a deposit of 100,000 dollars.
But we adopt “margin trading (leverage effect)” and you can start 100,000 dollar investment with less cash.
Leverage would be approximately 16 times if you can trade 10 million yen with 600,000 yen.
Leverage trade can increase the return but it also increases the risk.
Leverage management is very important in FX.

Receive swap points from high yield currencies

Another attraction of FX is swap points that are equivalent to interests for foreign currency deposit.
You can normally receive swap points by buying high yield currency and selling low yield currency.

You can make profit even in strong yen environment

In the case of foreign currency deposit, you need weak yen to make profit apart from the interests.
But you can make profit from strong yen in FX.
For example, if you believe yen will appreciate against dollar, you can make profit by selling dollar and buying it back after yen had appreciated.
It means there are opportunities to make profit in both strong and weak environment of yen.

Very cheap trading cost

Very cheap trading costFee required for foreign currency deposit is generally one yen each way making the total cost of 200,000 yen for 100,000 dollar investment.
In the case of “Premier Course”, the maximum commission fee would be 12,000 yen for a transaction of 100,000 dollars (0.06 yen each way).
The cost is below 10% of foreign currency deposit.
