Reasons To Trade 101
Reasons to trade are all around us and countries worldwide regularly trade with each other due to differences in:
Technology: ability to turn their resources into outputs like goods and services
Resource Endowments: current natural resources or capital stock
Demand/Preferences: Chinese may demand more rice, Japanese more fish ...
Economies of Scale: unit production costs fall as the scale of production rises
Government Policy: tax and subsidies can alter prices
However, the best ideas come with accumulated skill/knowledge plus the ability to choose the most effective instruments and strategies,
further drilling down into your ideas may reveal even more nuggets of data that help correlate/forecast markets (beyond the scope of this introduction)
but as a general rule, don't start a trading plan without a solid reason that you understand. Take your time to question everything and
don't readily accept value from a 3rd party source.
