    How Did George Soros Make His Money: Top 3 Trades

    Author: Victor Gryazin

    Today we will dive into the business of George Soros, a trader and manager who became a true legend. We will consider three Soros's trades with currency that made him a celebrity of the financial world.

    Who is George Soros

    George Soros is a trader, investor, and manager considered by many to be one of the most successful financiers of these days. For long he used to be the manager of the Quantum hedge fund that used to demonstrate stable annual profitability of 30% from 1970 through 2000. Also, he created a network of grantinh institutions known as the Soros Fund.

    He was born in Hungary in 1930. After the World War II was over, he left for England to study at the London School of Economy. Upon graduating, he went to New York and began his banking career, later leaving for a broker company. Many years later, he formed the Soros Fund Management that became a part of the mentioned Quantum Fund.

    Over the years of active work, Soros made several impressive trades and investments. He is one of the most famous investors in the financial world, known for making trades with currencies that are huge even for the global financial world. Soros's capital in 2022 was above 8 billion USD. Moreover, he donatef more than 30 billion USD on charity and political projects.

    Legendary Soros’s trades with currencies

    Let us take a look at threw Soros's trades with currencies that made him wealthy and famous.

    British pound: George Soros and Black Wednesday for the Bank of England

    Soros's Forex stake against the British pound is called one of the greatest currency trades of the modern world. Great Britain joined the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM) in 1991, when inflation was high and interest rates were low. By this mechanism, the government planned to hold the exchange rate of the national currency at 2.7 German mark per pound.

    However, there was no good reason for such a rate, firstly because inflation in Britain at that time was much higher than in Germany. Being an economist, Soros noticed that the pound was seriously overestimated against the German mark, and un summer 1992 started making stakes against the British currency via his Quantum fund. The total sum of the trade is evaluated as about 5 billion pounds.

    To hold back the rate and attract investors, Great Britain increased the interest rates above 10% but this never helped. Alongside Soros, many market players started selling the pound against the mark and dollar expecting the exchange rate to drop.

    Soon the British government realised that it would have to spend a lot of money due to the extremely high rates and the necessity to hold the rate of the pound that high. Apart from that, German authorities publicly announced possible reorganization inside the ERM.

    On 16 September 1992, the British government decided to leave the ERM and unbind the pound, and this day got the name of Black Wednesday. As a result, the British pound abruptly dropped by 15% against the German mark and by 25% against the USD. By different evaluations, Soros made about 1 billion USD on this trade.

    Quotes by George Soros about investments
    • It is not important whether you are right or not; it is important how much you earn when you are right and how much you lose when you are wrong.
    • Financial markets are usually unpredictable. So each one must have different scenarios. The idea that you can really predict what happens is against my understanding of the market.
    • The market is a mathematical hypothesis. The best solutions are elegant and simple.
    • I have created quite a general theory that financial markets are naturally unstable; that when we think about a balanced market, this picture is false.
    • Risk is painful. People are either ready to endure the pain themselves or try to pass it to someone else. There is nothing better than danger for focusing your mind; I really need the risk-provoked anxiety to think clearly. Accepting risk for me is an important part of a clear mind.
    • If investing seems entertaining, you must not be making any money. Good investing is boring.
    Bottom line

    George Soros is a trader who can easily be called an outstanding person. Some call him a genius, some say he is a talented manipulator. Thanks to his trades with currencies, Soros has made real money and has gone down to history as a financial legend of modern day.

    Is It Important to Plan Budget

    Author: Victor Gryazin
    What is Forex?

    In this article, we will touch upon the issue of budget: what it is, what it is used for and how to plan it. Moreover, we will try to explain why a well-planned budget is such important for work with finance. Also, we will show you the advantages of an accurate budget.

    Why budget is important

    Budget is a financial plan for a certain timeframe that accounts for planned income and expenses. As a rule, a budget is drafted for a month or year.

    Planning a budget implies a detailed list of expenses that gives a clear understanding of what can and has to be left out for your financial goals to be reached faster.

    Explaining the importance of budget, we should at once enumerate its advantages. Firstly, a budget helps to manage your monthly expenses, makes you more disciplined, gets you ready for overcoming some crises, and stops you from making unwise financial decisions.

    What is the goal of budget

    Your budget demonstrates how much money a country, company, family, or person has and how much is to be spent on obligatory expenses. It must be noted that a budget is not a list of monthly earnings and spending; even such a table would be useful, though it will not help in reaching financial stability.

    The goal of a budget is planning expenses and earnings over a certain time and then comparing your plan to what you actually got. This comparison and analysis of your statistics answers the basic questions:
    • What have you spent your money on, and was it that necessary?
    • Why your actual expenses have exceeded your plan and on what goods and services?
    • How to follow your financial plan more accurately?
    • What to do to minimise negative deviations of your budget from your plan?

    What types of budget there are

    A budget can be equally planned for a country and an individual who wants more order in their expenses. This document must fully represent the state of finance of a family or company. This means that the plan must include absolutely all sources of income and types of spending. The information must be true, valid, and full.

    The process of financial planning is called budgeting and belongs to one of the following types:
    • Personal budgeting is creating a budget for an individual for distributing income on spending, savings, and paying off debts. It accounts for previous expenses and debts. For example, a job is a source of income, while communal payments and rent are expenses. Here, we can also single out the category of assets: property, investments, and other savings or valuables that create a potential reserve for a budget deficit.
    • Corporate budgeting is making a financial forecast for the nearest future that unites prospective income and expenses of various departments. It is the key element of integrated business planning. The process of corporate budgeting normally calls for a lot of effort, involving several employees. The final decision if left for the financial director.
    Why it is profitable to plan budget

    Budgeting allows for balancing out your income and expenses and reaching your financial goals. The latter ones may be as ambitious as buying real estate, or more modest, like buying a smarphone. A budget will provide more accurate information about how to reach your goals fast.

    Another reason for thinking about a family budget is creating a reserve for some emergency. It is recommended to save no less than 10% of your monthly income for a money airbag. It should last you 3-6 months in case you lose your source of income. This is one of the main rules taught on financial literacy courses.

    Tracking all your expenses helps to find some possible sources of saving. And even is it seems that you have saved little today, imagine how this sum may grow with time if you stick to the plan.

    Bottom line

    A budget allows for tracking your income and expenses easily and in detail. A budget is the base for financial success and safety. It also helps to make difficult financial decisions.

    Basic Finance Terms That Beginners Need to Know

    Author:Victor Gryazin

    In this review, we will discuss wide-spread finance terms that will be useful for new-comers to financial markets.

    Financial terms


    Financial assets are a specific non-physical form of property (something that a person or company owns) that is supposed to generate a profit. Such assets include bank deposits, stocks, bonds, cryptocurrencies, etc. Financial assets are more liquid than other types of assets.


    Liquidity is a characteristic of how fast and easily a financial asset can be turned into money without significant losses of its cost.

    Bull market

    Bull market is a state of the market in which asset prices are growing, and market participants are optimistic.


    Correlation in finance is a statistical measure that shows the relationship between two assets. In other words, correlation is the ability of one asset to move in accordance with the movements of another asset.

    Interest rate

    Interest rate is the minimum interest under which the Central Bank of a certain company gives loans to commercial banks. The dynamics of currency markets are seriously influenced by changes in interest rates made by the leading Central Banks. These changes are an indirect reaction to other economic indicators and can provoke fast and strong movements in the currency markets.


    Leverage is the ratio of the loaned capital to the capital owned by the trader. The higher the leverage, the more money is used in trading, which increases potential profits and losses.

    Margin Call

    Margin Call happens when the broker requires to additionally deposit the trader’s account when the amount of money on it reaches some critical level. Margin Call and the trading account margin are a protective mechanism that controls the level of the trader’s money on the account and limits the broker’s risks.


    Netting is an accounting system that allows for just one open position in one direction. The trader may not simultaneously open a buying and selling trade by one instrument; if they do, positions get mutually closed. Orders opened in one direction, however, are summed up.


    Hedging financial risks means making professional use of financial instruments or market strategies to compensate for any unwanted price movements. This accounting system allows for any number of open positions in different directions for one instrument.


    In trading, profit is the net profit made on a trading operation or an investment. In other words, profit is earnings minus all expenses.

    Quantitative Easing

    QE is an instrument used by Central Banks for adding money directly to the country’s economy that needs to be livened up and freed from crisis. QE does not imply printing a lot of new physical money – the process goes by creating non-cash funds. The funds are spent on buying bonds in the private sector, also known as purchase of government debt. All these actions bring down the yield of state bonds and increase the overall quantity of money in the economy.


    Volatility is the range in which the price of a financial instrument changes over time (day, week, month, etc.). To put it simply, volatility shows how much the price of a financial instrument may grow or fall over time.

    Closing thoughts

    In this review, we have discussed several common terms used in financial markets. They are well-known by experienced traders and investors, and market beginners can use them to increase their erudition and professionalism and to enhance understanding of how financial markets function.

    How to Use Margin Calculator on Forex

    Author: Victor Gryazin

    This article is devoted to margin on the Forex market: what it is necessary for, where to find it, and how to use a special calculator for margin on Forex.

    What is margin

    This term has several meanings. In business, margin is profit in percent minus expenses. In trading it means the money that an investor must deposit to the account of their broker or exchange to cover for credit risks.

    Margin on Forex is finance used y a broker to cover for credit risks. Its size depends on the contract and leverage. In other words, margin is a necessary deposit for opening sustaining a position that allows for making trades with leverage for a larger sum than the trader has.

    Margin crediting is provided by brokers so that traders with modest deposits could open substantial positions on Forex. Every broker has their own marginal requirements, and this issue should be cleared before the trader starts working with margin.

    The idea of margin trading on Forex is that cash is not supplied factually. Trading implies making a profit on growth or falling of a currency pair. All trades in margin trading are two-sided: if a contact opens for buying, it is closed with a sale, and vice versa. As a result, the trader either makes a profit or suffers a loss.

    Formula for calculating margin

    The formula for calculating margin necessary for opening a position looks as follows:

    Required margin = [(Base currency) / (Account currency)] * Position volume / Leverage

    • Base currency is the currency of the trading operation; it is number one in the abbreviation of the currency pair.
    • Account currency is the currency of the trader’s account.
    • Position volume is the volume of the trading position in the base currency.
    • Leverage is the size of the leverage used.

    Example of calculating margin by formula

    Imagine a trader needs to know what margin they need in USD to open a position sized 0.5 lot in GBP/USD with leverage 1:100.

    The current GBP/USD quote is 1.15 USD, which means the ratio of the base currency GBP to the account currency USD is 1.15. A standard lot on Forex is 100,000 units of the base currency.

    Let us use the formula:

    1.15 * 100000 * 0.5 / 100 = 575

    This means that to open such a position the trader needs 575 USD on their account.

    How to use margin calculator

    All calculations of margin have long become automatic, which means the trader does not need to manually count it by the formula. There is a useful and comfortable instrument for it called margin calculator.

    This universal instrument is also known as trading calculator, Forex margin calculator, and leverage calculator. It will be useful for market beginners and experts alike.

    With this instrument traders can calculate parameters of trades online and choose the most efficient strategies before opening a position. As an example let us take a look at the Trading Calculator by RoboForex that can be found on the official website.

    The calculator has four main input parameters:
    • Ticker of the currency pair
    • Lot size
    • Leverage size
    • Account currency
    After the trader fills in the boxes and clicks Calculate, they get detailed information about the planned trade (according to the account type):
    • Size of the margin required for opening the position
    • Cost of changing 1 point of quotes by the position
    • Spread size (the difference between the buy and sell prices)
    • Swop (rollover) size for long and short positions – the sum that is deposited/withdrawn for transferring the position to the next trading day

    What You Need to Know to Make Money on the Stock Market?

    Author: Andrey Goilov

    Financial markets are a completely different world. If one manages to get comfortable here and learn how to choose instruments to invest in, then in the future they can get access to the things that all people strive for – freedom, independence, and a chance to work for themselves. However, in order to achieve and get all of this, one must learn a lot and work hard on themselves and their emotions. When trading on the stock market, it is possible both to earn good money and lose some of your own funds in case of wrong choice of companies.

    Why do I need to invest?

    Unfortunately, if your money doesn’t work and just lies in a jar, it takes a beating because of the high inflation. If we invest money in a bank, in most cases the interests we receive barely cover the inflation, while the fall in your national currency exchange rate may put even such seemingly reliable ways of saving money in jeopardy. The real estate market is not always attractive as well.

    As a matter of fact, the stock market is one of the most promising ways to get profit provided that you have seed money. This factor is very clearly described in a movie called “Limitless”. The main character takes a new nootropic, which makes his brains extremely powerful. Using these abilities, the character earns a pile of money in a very short period of time. and the stock market is exactly the place where he accomplishes it.

    Where to start?

    Nowadays, people trade online, that’s why the first thing you need is internet access.
    1. Decide on the investment amount. It’s very important not to risk big sums of money, loss of which may radically change your life. Another thing is that one should not trade with borrowed funds. Many authors from Europe and the USA recommend to start trade with the sum you won’t regret to lose.
    2. Choose a broker to buy and sell stocks through. A good article How to Choose a Forex Broker was earlier published in our blog.
    3. Choose a trading strategy. The method you choose will tell you what stocks to buy or, like professional traders and investors say, provide signals for buying and selling financial instruments. For example, one can try strategies for beginners based on Moving Averages. It’s a simple but at the same time efficient tool for analyzing stocks; an important advantage here is trading towards the primary trend.

    Mistakes that beginners make

    There is an opinion that in order to become a real trader and get permanent income on the stock market, one must gain experience that will help to avoid making mistakes in the future. Needless to say, that in the early going traders tend to “go to pieces” and take on real risk. Experienced authors can recommend something here as well.
    1. Trading towards the primary trend is one of the key rules. If the stock price rises, it is believed that they should be bought, while in case of decline it would be better to get rid of them.
    2. Don’t trade if you don’t see fair opportunities for that. We are recommended to stick to the strategy, which we must choose before starting to trade. If the strategy doesn’t provide signals at the given moment, it makes good sense to patiently wait for such signals and only after that start making decisions whether to buy stocks or not.
    3. Let your profit grow and close your loss-making deals. If the stock price rises and your profit increases with each day, don’t be in a hurry to sell them – on the contrary, you should wait until your profit goes higher. However, if you see that stocks generate losses instead of profit, it will be wise to sell them in order to avoid more significant losses.
    4. Trade with protective stop orders. Before opening a position, you should in advance set the price, at which the positions will be closed with a loss. Anything can happen on the stock market, that’s why it’s very important to estimate risks you are willing to take.

    How Economic Recession Influences Investors' Behaviour

    Author: Victor Gryazin

    This overview describes what economic recession is and why it happens. We will analyse a case of global economic recession and see some advice concerning how to behave during a crisis.

    What is economic recession

    Recession is a serious and lengthy decline of economic activity, characterised by a decrease in production and employment that results in falling of income and spending of households. This phenomenon may last over several months and is usually followed by a decline of the GDP.

    Experts from the US National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) have given their own definition. They state that recession is a significant economic decline that starts at the high of preceding growth and ends at the low of subsequent falling.

    The decline of economic activity must be quite deep and lengthy to have the right to be called recession. It may last just several months but it will take the economy years to get back to the previous peak.

    Reasons for and signs of economic recession

    Multiple economic theories struggle to explain why and how economy escapes a lengthy uptrend and starts falling. For example, abrupt and stable growth of oil prices due to a geopolitical crisis may lead to growth of spending at the global market and provoke a global economic recession.

    According to the conclusion made by the US Congress Special Commission, the economic recession 2008-2009 was provoked by such factors as mistakes in financial regulations and in corporate management, excessively high debts of households, wide use of high-risk derivatives, and growth of non-regulated shadow banking.

    Spread of COVID-19 in 2020 and quarantine restrictions are yet another example of an economic shock that can provoke recession. It might be just speeding up the process that could be inevitable due to other factors.

    How US recession 2008 influenced global capital markets

    The economic recession and crisis in 2008 followed a lengthy time of growth of housing prices and a boom of mortgaging in the US. The overall economic peak happened in December 2007,and the NBER considers this month the beginning of the recession. At the start, the decline of the economic activity was modest but sped up abruptly in autumn 2008 when stress in financial markets reached the top. The US GDP dropped from +2% to -2.6%, and the unemployment rate grew from 5% to 10%.

    January 2007 through September 2009 large US and European banks lost more than $1 trillion on toxic assets and unsecured loans. A lack of confidence of investors in the paying ability of banks alongside loans becoming less affordable led to an abrupt decline of prices for goods and services. The crisis quickly turned into a global economic shock, making several large banks go bankrupt. Economy worldwide slowed down because crediting became tough and global trade went feeble.

    This recession in the US became the longest one since World War 2 and lasted 18 months. The S&P 500 index started falling at the end of 2007 and, having lost more than 50%, began recovery only in the middle of 2009.

    Global economic recession 2022

    These days, the global economy is slowing down abruptly. War in Ukraine, growth of prices for energy carriers and foods alongside imbalance between the demand for them and supply provoke growth of global inflation. According to forecasts of analysts, a decline of the buying ability of households and toughening of the credit and monetary policy will bring down the growth of the US economy up to 2.3% this year and up to 1% in the next year.

    In China, the slow-down of economic development turned out stronger than expected due to COVID-19 breakouts and imposed quarantine measures. In the Euro zone, growth dropped to 2.6% this year and will reach 1.2% next year.

    Trading Like Sperandeo: 1-2-3 Reversal and 2B Pattern

    Author: Victor Gryazin

    In this article, we will discuss the trading methods of a famous Wall Street trader Victor Sperandeo. A long-time experience of trading on exchanges and managing investments as well as several books on trading have brought Sperandeo the popularity he deserves.

    How to draw a trend line?

    According to the definition from tech analysis, a trend is a period when the price is moving mostly in one direction, either growing or declining. In other words, a trend is a price movement in one direction. A trend can be explained by economic, political factors or force majeure events.

    Sperandeo singles out three types of a trend in terms of its length; they can be active simultaneously and move in opposite directions:
    • Short-term trend lasts from several days to several weeks, 14 work days on average
    • Mid-term trend lasts from several weeks to several months
    • Long-term trend lasts from several months to several years.
    Any of this trends can be traded; traders usually aim at short- and mid-term trends while investors – on mid- and long-term ones. To trade reversal patterns, we need the market to move in an up- or downtrend.

    An uptrend is a price move in which each next high is higher than the previous one and each next low is also higher than the previous one.
    A downtrend is characterized by each next high and low being lower than the previous one.
    An important aspect of trend analysis is drawing the trendline. When the price breaks out the trendline, it signals the beginning of a correction or a trend reversal. For drawing the trendline, the following rules are used:
    • The trendline in an uptrend is drawn on the chart through 2 points: the first point is the low preceding the absolute high of the trend; the second point is the first low the uptrend has started from. If the trendline crosses the chart, the second point (the farthest low) is transferred to the next closer low for the trendline not to cross the price chart.

    Trend reversal 1-2-3

    The rule of Sperandeo trend reversal 1-2-3 comes into force when the price chart breaks out the trendline. This is the first signal of a possible trend reversal, which may precede a 1-2-3 reversal. Below, we will discuss in detail the rules of formation of this reversal and trading it in an up- and downtrend.

    A 1-2-3 reversal in an uptrend
    • Find an actual uptrend on the price chart and draw a trendline.
    • After the trendline is broken out, name the high preceding the breakout as point 1 and the low formed after the breakout – point 2.
    • After point 2 is formed, a new ascending impulse in the direction of the trend forms. A short-term exceeding of point 1 is possible (it is called a false breakout) – it must be followed by a strong pullback down. The new high is named point 3.
    • The 1-2-3 reversal comes into force if the price goes further down renewing the low in the point 2. Open an selling position, putting an SL above point 3.
    We have described an original conservative way of trading a 1-2-3 reversal by Victor Sperandeo. Sometimes, I use a more aggressive way of trading – I trade right after point 3 is formed. The signal might be a false breakaway or some Price Action reversal pattern. This is less trustworthy because the reversal has not been confirmed yet (point 2 has no been broken out) but this method allows to enter the market with a smaller SL and a more profitable profit to loss ratio.
