Alfa-Forex wishes you a happy New Year!
Dear clients, Alfa-Forex wishes you happy holidays! The New Year is coming and many people look back to the past 12 months, remember their high points, feeling happy or sad. Speaking traders’ vocabulary, the year 2016 was an uptrend year for some people: everything planned was a success, investments and deals produced profit, while global financial events played into their hands. Other people did their best to catch and tame the trend, spoiling money and working to death. Finally, the rest lived in a sideways trend with nothing important to remember. Yet, no matter what your personal chart looked like this year, we wish you remain calm in the most complex situations in the following 2017: that is the basic rule both for the real life and market trading. Let the New Year turn any situation into profit! Happy New Year!

Earn more money on oil with Alfa-Forex!
To collect rent from oil you are not supposed to have your own rig in the backyard. All you have to do is to monitor crude oil inventories data. Reported by US Department of Energy, they cause strong black gold price movement every week. The chance to reap the rewards increases if inventories are published after headline-making events, as it actually happened this week.
Not so long ago OPEC applied important resolutions that resulted in commodity market strong volatility. This time any news may produce a powerful oil price momentum. Analysts believe that oil inventories will go down this week while oil price will grow as a consequence. The right approach will allow you to make profit over 254.54% on the report, issued by US Department of Energy, and it will take you just a couple of days.
