Analysis that Drives Trading Activity

Trading Analysis

Let’s cut to the chase. Brokers want more traders that actually trade. Acquiring a new client can cost 5x as much as retaining existing ones. And retaining a trader can enhance profitability by 25% to a massive 95%. But retaining inactive traders doesn’t generate profits for brokers. As the leading content marketing agency for the finance space, we’re often asked for actionable content. One of the most important resources for traders is timely and accurate market analysis that accelerates decision-making. Here’s how to deliver analysis that drives trading activity.

Here are three types of analyses you can provide to get your traders to identify viable trading opportunities.

#1 Fundamental Analysis

It’s no secret that fundamental analysis is the foundation of trading equities. But it is equally essential to understand the fundamental behaviours of instruments such as commodities and currencies (both fiat and crypto) to decipher their reaction to market, geopolitical and economic developments. For instance, the euro took a hit after natural gas prices shot up following the sanctions against Russia in August 2022. So much so, that the euro fell below parity with the dollar for the first time since December 1999.

An informed trader might have anticipated the capacity of the US to expedite oil production even as global inflationary fears were setting the stage for the euro’s fate. You can be the broker that provides the right information at the right time.

Make it Actionable

  • Email unique analysis. Traders love to get the latest news and fundamental analysis direct to their inbox. Get them prepped for the day ahead with our unique analysis tailored for the currencies, cryptos or commodities you want them to trade!
  • Educate newbies. Analysis can be hard to grasp for new traders and we get that. Segregate your education centre so that you can properly explain the technicals to new traders without weighing down your pro traders.
  • Make your images pop. People process visuals 600 times faster than a line of text. Add charts and images to support your content, keep the design clean and use identifiable separators to classify content. Subtle customisations, such as a time-zone-based night mode display add a personal touch. If you’re more on the Gen Z end of trading then go with humorous gifs and memes that traders will find relatable.

#2 Technical Analysis

With the financial markets moving 24/7, price chart patterns, analysis and predictions become key to seizing opportunities without losing time. In the global markets, every second counts, especially for scalpers and high-frequency traders. Updates and accurate technical analyses help traders identify entry and exit levels.

A recent example is Uber’s earnings report for the final quarter of 2022, announced in February 2023. Analysts had expected Uber to have garnered revenues of $8.51 billion, which could lend support to the stock and push its price up. The earnings numbers, however, beat these optimistic predictions, and Uber’s stock closed 3% higher following the report’s release. The market belief that Uber must have grabbed a portion of rival Lyft’s market share resulted in Lyft’s stock tumbling about 36% the next day.

Technical analysis helps identify these overbought or oversold situations. It also helps traders predict reversals or breakouts to adjust their trading strategies accordingly. Sentiment plays a significant role too in driving asset prices much deeper than a trader might otherwise anticipate.

#3 News and Sentiment Analysis

Markets are impacted by news events from across the globe. But some might have a greater impact than others. For instance, the US NFP report, released on the first Friday of every month, gives insights into the world’s largest economy. The numbers tend to move the US dollar, which then affects the global markets. A similar report from another country may only have a localised, short-lived impact since the domestic currency is unlikely to have an impact as large as the greenback on most assets.

Geopolitical news, natural disasters and central bank monetary policy decisions, such as interest rate changes also move the markets. Such news affects asset prices because they impact the sentiment of market participants. For instance, interest rate hikes by the US Fed through 2022 kept concerns regarding an impending recession high. Similarly, news of the Ukraine invasion and ensuing sanctions led to fears regarding uncontrollable inflation in Europe.

  • Make it Tailored – One size never fits all when it comes to marketing financial assets. There are different assets, demographics, conditions, USPs and regions.
