    An economic theory that estimates the amount of adjustment needed on the exchange rate between countries in order for the exchange to be equivalent to each currency's purchasing power.

    The relative version of PPP is calculated as:
    S= P1/P2
    "S" represents exchange rate of currency 1 to currency 2
    "P1" represents the cost of good "x" in currency 1
    "P2" represents the cost of good "x" in currency 2

    In other words, the exchange rate adjusts so that an identical good in two different countries has the same price when expressed in the same currency.

    I prefer to use 90% of technical analysis in the trading. Other 10% for fundamentals.

    Well, i'm not try to be rude but i'm not asking what is your trading method. I want to know how effective PPP in today's forex. Can you give me some example as i have read this before but still don't know how it's affect fx. But this is the main point here.

    I'm also a mechanical traders, well newb one. But I play forex just not because of money only, but also because i love to discover why it goes that way. (I'm a science student)

    A trader need to have a good sense in life in various aspect, isn't it. Not making our eyes focusing on monitor seeing the ugly graph.

    PPP is well suited to forecasting exchange rate movements over the months or even years.
    For daily operations and forex trading PPP index is not
    sufficiently powerful.

    Leverage.
    In Forex trading, a small margin deposit can control a much larger total contract value. Leverage gives the trader the ability to make nice profits, and at the same time keep risk capital to a minimum. For example, Forex brokers offer 200 to 1 leverage, which means that a $50 dollar margin deposit would enable a trader to buy or sell $10,000 worth of currencies. Similarly, with $500 dollars, one could trade with $100,000 dollars and so on. But leverage is a double-edged sword. Without proper risk management, this high degree of leverage can lead to large losses as well as gains.

    What about carry trade? Is it another PPP or it's another term? Let's say there a lot of investor live in country A. And they have profit from investing in currency B (it doesn't mean for FX only) and want to take all the profit in currency A. What will happen to monetary policy(explain what is this) whether it will tight it or loose it and interest rate and also the currency if the current interest rate is high or low to both country?

    Well easy. In fx let's say u have 1000USD and u choose 1:500 that mean u control 500 000 USD for 1000 USD. Let's say you buy eu at 1.4 but it goes down and you loss 1000 pips. This is how we calculate 1.4-1.3 = 0.1

    then u do 0.1 x 500 000 u get 50000 USD loss. too bad
