Apart from that thousands of news is published in local and international papers on the world economic issues every day. Currency marketing is a backbone of any economy. This factor can boost up any economy over nights and can also crash the economic structure of a country within few hours. Most of the brokers around the world are offering eight major currencies to trade. All the eight currencies have over 17 derivatives. Out these, minimum 7 piece data is released on daily basis.

Secondly newspapers give a lot of information about following things which greatly affect forex trading.
1. Interest rates (what interest rates are fixed by the government),
2. Retail sales (quantity of products available in markets),
