How to choose a forex broker?

With almost a $4 trillion average daily turnover in the global foreign exchange market and many technical and fundamental techniques to help you predict the market, forex is a great way to make money in the comfort of your own home. But with hundreds of forex brokers out there how to you know which one to choose? Here are some key points you should consider:

MT4 and Streamster Platforms.

Trading forex online is performed through a platform. One of the most internationally recognized and widely used platforms is MetaTrader 4 (known as MT4). MT4 allows many currency pairs, indexes, commodities and other futures to be traded, and assist traders by performing technical analysis at the click of a button.

Trade on mobile, tablet and PC

However if you are new to trading then a simplified platform may be more useful. AGEA provides an excellent platform, Streamster. Like MT4, Streamster beside forex offers many CFDs (indexes, commodities) but has the advantage of being more user friendly, requires no deposit (some company require thousands of dollars in deposits to use MT4) and you get a $5 reward to trade with immediately.  Furthermore, you can trade using your android phone or tablet PC!

No deposit and $5 free reward

Deposits (Investment needed) As mentioned above, many companies require deposits when opening a live trading account. The reason for this is to protect the Company if you start losing heavily. Most MT4 accounts require a deposit of around $500.

At AGEA, however, you can open an MT4 account from as little as $10! There are three different levels of accounts; even the top account – Standard – requires only a $100 deposit. And remember Streamster requires no deposit!


Most likely you are trading not for fun but to make money. The higher you’re trading costs are, the harder it will be for you to make profit, so charges are a key factor when choosing a broker.

Forex brokers generally only charge commission on Straight-Through-Processing (STP) accounts. This is where your trade is passed onto another broker and the introducing broker just receives a commission.

However on other accounts (such as AGEA’s Streamster, MT4 Cent and MT4 Standard) no commissions are charged. One of the key areas, therefore, that differentiates brokers is the spreads. Spreads are the different between the bid and ask price of an instrument. Let say you buy an instrument and sell at exactly the same ask price, you would still make a small loss as the broker will make the bid price slightly lower than the ask price. AGEA has institution-level low spreads on MT4 because we do not add any commission or mark-ups to the prime brokerage rates, and we choose the brokerage with the lowest spreads.

Virtual Desk:(

It is important that you practice trading before you go live, especially if you are new to trading. Most brokers will provide you with a virtual desk with virtual money for you to trade with, so you get to trade without the risk of losing money. But, of course, you also can’t make money just by trading on the virtual desk – except at AGEA!


Win $100 trading on AGEA’s Virtual Desk: No investment required!

 AGEA runs a competition which rewards the trader who makes the highest virtual profit on the virtual Streamster desk. The reward is $100 and can be used to trade on your live desk or withdrawn. All traders receive $5 when they open an account with AGEA to trade on the live desk, so again you could make money without investing any!


24 hour, multilingual support:

 Support; Whether you are technology pro or not, you may sometimes need some help. AGEA has a dedicated, high quality, 24 hour, multilingual online support channels. You can chat directly with one of their assistants at any time and they will be sure to help you in any way they can.



If you are serious about making money then you need to reduce your costs and make sure you have the right tools to learn and to trade.

AGEA offers a multitude of platform accounts, learning tools, and full time support all at institutionally low prices!

This is big.  This is huge.  This is extremely important.

Using stats as your guide for all your advertising decisions is imperative to the success of your online business.

Do not use any hit exchange (also known as traffic exchanges), and certainly do not purchase anything, until you 
first check the current Hit Exchange Report.

Our work here at Traffic Hoopla is a key ingredient to thousands of successful online marketers. Regardless of 
traffic building, thousands on thousands reference our rankings, and many successful marketers use the full 
testing report as their guide for all their advertising decisions.

Joining and using any advertising services, especially spending money, simply because it is pretty, popular, or 
other anecdotal stuff, makes no sound business sense at all.  Instead, do what is professional, what is sound, 
what makes perfect sense, and follow the stats. Business is business. 
And results, proven by stats, makes more sense than a bunch of anecdotes.

The Hit Exchange Report is 100% independent statistical testing since 2002. Each full testing report includes 
various rankings, summaries, and useful info. Follow it, use it, similar to a stock market trader following 
the numbers.

No, Traffic Hoopla does NOT own or partner with any hit exchange. No, TH do not take surveys or votes.

Yes, the Hit Exchange Report has been continually published, weekly, without any missed issues, since 
November 2002.

Overall, the Top 20 ranking is determined by a composite score, from statistical data, including raw traffic 
delivery, primary conversion rate, secondary conversion rate, bounce rate, new visitors rate, special tracking 
hits, unique hits, unique percentage, and commissions paid.  What we all really want to know, is it running, is 
it growing, and is it thriving. And if so, then it is exactly where we want to be.

This is not a game, fade, or a bunch of hoopla.  Traffic Hoopla take the work very seriously, and you should 
follow their lead.

There are literally hundreds of traffic exchanges online, and most are worthless in that they generate little to no 
activity, and little to no results. However, there are those that do work and we make sales from these every 
single day.

Now as far as traffic building, this is the business, at Traffic Hoopla. Sure, you may choose to simply get traffic, 
today, for your business, affiliate sites, etc.  However, for long term success, follow their instructions for building 
traffic. Traffic Hoopla is talking about building, long term, large amounts of ongoing daily traffic, and this is the 
absolute key to any successful online businesses.

Today is Tuesday, October 19, the Hit Exchange Report is published, therefore, the Hoopla Rankings are now 

All Traffic Hoopla members should login, view the Join List, and take action as it applies.

for all your advertising decisions.

Banner advertising is not dead!

Posted by cosmic_surfer on June 29, 2010 at 3:32 PM Comments comments (0)

Banner advertising is NOT dead.

I still get some really good click throughs using banner ads, so can you.


There is another reason for using them as well,Branding Branding Branding.

Yes get your logo, Site name site colors in front of people as much as you can. People

really do remember things and the more they notice your banner adverts the more they will think of you.


One big thing to remember is when you are surfing traffic exchanges you can find,win, pick up some good amounts of

banner impressions and a lot of people do not use them. Why? A common reason is they don't have a banner. That is no

longer a problem because you can use one of our ready made banners and link it to whatever site you like.


Fed up of having to change the banners everywhere that you promote? We can solve that too, Add our URL's in all

the sites/exchanges and just change your banner ads in one place. Think of how much time that can save...


Maybe you have lots of banner displays in one place but want to show banners all over the net without all the work

involved. Add our code where you have banner impressions and get your banners shown in a number of places.


Got a busy site? add our code and display banners on your site in exchange for us showing your banners in multiple

places and other sites. You have heard of banner exchanges but none have taken it to anywhere near this level before,

Is Qyao the income generator as they claim to be?

Posted by cosmic_surfer on December 18, 2008 at 2:47 AM Comments comments (0)
We have been in Qyao for about 7 months now.


if you like to socialize and make money, better not join them. We have been with them and we did our job all the time. Until we managed to create a good amount of money in our account there! But that is of course worth nothing, when they simply do not pay. We have been waiting since September to get paid. Questions about the pending payment were not answered and friends are being blocked (like us now also) for asking questions about payments.

Our advise: don't waste any time and money with them. We have tested this and lost money.
We don't want you to experience the same!

Be warned.

The statistic that 95% of safelists and TE's are totally ineffective, meaning they NEVER have a single response from their members EVER, has held true across the five years we have been testing.....

Don't waste your

time, money and energy

IBM Predicts the End of Advertising as We Know It

IBM Predicts the End of Advertising as We Know It



November 08, 2007: 08:00 AM EST

IBM (NYSE: IBM) Global Business Services unveiled its new report, "The End of Advertising as We Know It," forecasting greater disruption for the advertising industry in the next five years than occurred in the previous 50.


To examine the factors influencing advertising and explore future scenarios, IBM surveyed more than 2,400 consumers and 80 advertising executives globally. The IBM report shows increasingly empowered consumers, more self-reliant advertisers and ever-evolving technologies are redefining how advertising is sold, created, consumed and tracked.


Traditional advertising players risk major revenue declines as budgets shift rapidly to new, interactive formats, which are expected to grow at nearly five times that of traditional advertising. To survive in this new reality, broadcasters must change their mass audience mind-set to cater to niche consumer segments, and distributors need to deliver targeted, interactive advertising for a range of multimedia devices. Advertising agencies must experiment creatively, become brokers of consumer insights, and guide allocation of advertising dollars amid exploding choices. All players must adapt to a world where advertising inventory is increasingly bought and sold in open exchanges vs. traditional channels.


"Digital entertainment is experiencing faster adoption than anyone had previously anticipated. The advertising community needs to dramatically re-orient its business to serve consumers who increasingly access content in non-linear formats," said Bill Battino, Communications Sector managing partner, IBM Global Business Services. "Companies must re-look at how they serve content to consumers with business models based much more on engaging consumers in a relationship."


The report observes four change drivers tipping the advertising industry balance of power: control of attention, creativity, measurement, and advertising inventories. As shown in IBM's global digital media and entertainment consumer survey released in August, consumers' attention has shifted, with personal Internet time rivaling TV time. Consumers have tired of interruption advertising, and are increasingly in control of how they interact, filter, distribute, and consume their content, and associated advertising messages. IBM's survey findings demonstrated that half of DVR owners watch 50 percent or more of programming on re-play, and that traditional video advertising doesn't translate online: 40 percent of respondents found ads during an online video segment more annoying than any other format. Amateurs and semi-professionals are increasingly creating low cost advertising content that threatens to bypass creative agencies, while publishers and broadcasters are broadening their own creative roles. Advertisers are demanding accountability and more specific individual consumer measurements across advertising platforms. Self-service advertising exchanges are attracting revenues that were once exclusively sold through proprietary channels or transactions.


Advertising Experts' Expectations in Line with Global Consumer Trends


IBM's research found that advertising experts recognize the changing nature of consumers and also anticipate dramatic changes on the horizon. More than half of ad professionals polled by IBM expect that in the next five years open advertising exchanges (currently led by companies like Google, Yahoo, AOL) will take 30 percent of current revenues now commanded by traditional broadcasters and media. Nearly half of the advertising survey respondents anticipate a significant (greater than 10%) revenue shift away from the 30-second spot within the next five years, and almost 10 percent of respondents thought there would be a dramatic (greater than 25 percent) shift. Two-thirds of advertising experts surveyed by IBM expect 20 percent of advertising revenue to move from impression-based to impact-based formats within three years.


Saul Berman, IBM Media & Entertainment Strategy and Change practice leader, said, "Advertising remains integral to pop culture and continues to fund a significant portion of entertainment around the world. But it needs to morph into new formats and offer more intrinsic value to consumers, who will have more choices. The wealth of new advertising outlets means consumer analytics will have a more prominent role than ever regardless of where you reside in the value chain. Young people in particular have grown accustomed to not paying for content. Despite greater consumer control over content and advertising, we envision a world where consumers will continue to prefer to view advertising rather than pay for content directly."


The report indicates by 2012, the landscape of the industry will change so profoundly that to survive, advertising industry players need to take aggressive steps to innovate in three key areas:



-- Consumers: making micro-segmentation and personalization paramount in marketing;-- Business models: how and where advertising inventory is sold, the structure and forms of partnerships, revenue models and advertising formats;-- Business design and infrastructure: All players need to redesign organizational and operating capabilities across the advertising lifecycle to support consumer and business model innovation: consumer analytics, channel planning, buying/selling, creation, delivery and impact reporting.



IBM believes that all players will need to invest heavily in consumer analytics and automation to gain more insights about the consumer and how to reach them. For example, interactive advertising paired with consumer analytics provides compelling knowledge of who viewed and acted on an ad rather than estimates of impressions, allowing advertisers to maximize revenue and yield management. Industry players will also need to examine if they have right resources and capacity to handle increased marketing promotions and integrated advertising sales. Finally, IBM observes that the dramatic increase in both the number and variety of promotions is leading to greater investment in tools to digitally transform and reduce the cost of companies' workflows including content management, creative development, production and sign-off processes.

The IBM Institute for Business Value provides strategic insights and recommendations that address critical business challenges to help clients capitalize on new opportunities. The Institute is comprised of consultants around the world who conduct research and analysis in 17 industries and across five functional disciplines, including human capital management, financial management, corporate strategy, supply chain management and customer relationship management. IBM has a strong global focus on the media and entertainment industry across all of its services and products, serving all the major industry segments -- entertainment, publishing, information providers, media networks and advertising.
