First non-trading contest with fantastic surPRIZES by InstaForex For the first time ever, InstaForex kicks off a truly unique

For the first time ever, InstaForex kicks off a truly unique contest Match Hero. Unlike other InstaForex competitions, this one does not involve trading at all! Match Hero is a contest for football fans with passion of true players.

What is so unique about this contest?

For more than two years, InstaForex has partnered with the legendary Liverpool, a Premier League association football club. Now the company gives an opportunity to guess the best player of the match before the start of each game (the contest period includes 14 games). Moreover, the contestants have four attempts to guess the player which means that you can get up to 4 points in each match.

This summer we will sum up the results and determine two winners: one - among traders with the biggest score, and another one - among LFC players with the best performance.

And the icing on the cake is a fully paid trip to the one of the LFC matches in Asia for the contest winner. He will give the prize for the best football player in front of the whole stadium.

Moreover, the top ten participants will be awarded with such great prizes as all-expenses-paid trips to Liverpool matches of the Premier League (including the VIP tickets), LFC merchandise with the players' autographs, as well as bonus trading accounts with a $1,000 deposit.

Rewarding year end InstaForex participates in ShowFx World expo in Kyiv

Approaching the year end, InstaForex hosted a traditional finance exposition under the ShowFx World brand. The expo in Kyiv is fairly considered a landmark event of the year. This time, a large number of visitors proved keen interest in Forex. The two-day expo in Regency Hyatt Kiev was visited by almost a thousand people. There are a few reasons behind this huge success. The first one is well-known speakers. InstaForex was represented by analysts Aleksandr Davydov and Mikhail Makarov as well as Regional Development Manager Sergey Aleksandrov.

As usual, Aleksandr Davydov expanded on global burning issues. He spoke about how a new economic policy in the US could influence the global economy. Besides, the analyst made his own forecast for currencies of emerging economies for 2017.

On the contrary, Mikhail Makarov focused on a practical issue. In his presentation, he shared two major secrets of steady success on Forex with the guests. The analyst put a high priority on the ability to develop one's own trading system which should be supplemented with wise risk management. The expert revealed both secrets, going into detail and answering questions from the audience.

Sergey Aleksandrov addressed his speech to trading practitioners who are eager to find an extra source of income that would not hamper their forex routine. As a way out, he suggested various trading services that ensure extra benefit in parallel with trading, in particular PAMM project and the ForexCopy system. He stressed that it is experienced traders who achieve the best results in affiliate programs of forex brokers. Indeed, practitioners can train beginners to trade and gain a reward for guidance.

The grand award ceremony was a jewel in the tight program. Winners of the 7th season of the international Miss Insta Asia beauty contest were presented with their prizes. Four winners in different nominations arrived at the ceremony from Russia, Ukraine, and the Czech Republic. Anna Gementchuk from Kyiv was declared Miss Insta Asia 2016. Apart from the title of the beauty queen, she was awarded a trading account deposited with $20,000. The girl promised to start trading in the near future.

Last but not least, ShowFx World hosts did not forget about prize draws and gifts for the visitors. Taking part in InstaForex traditional prize draws, some guests won bonus certificates worth up to $1,000 and branded devices. Those, who were not so lucky to win an iPhone 7, were given books on trading and accessories from InstaForex partner, Italy's Palermo football club.

New truck to secure victory at Dakar Rally 2017 The famous large-scale rally kicks off on January 2 in Asunción.

Dakar Rally 2017 is a tough challenge both for racers and trucks. The route will stretch across Paraguay, Bolivia, and Argentina. The famous large-scale rally kicks off on January 2 in Asunción and comes to an end on January 14 in Buenos Aires. InstaForex Loprais Team will traditionally take part in the Dakar adventure.

This year, our team headed by Ales Loprais is going to compete on Tatra Phoenix, the new state-of-the-art truck, specially designed for the off-road rally. The other good news is that Ales Loprais and Martin Kolomy combined their efforts under a new joint venture called InstaForex Tatra Buggyra Racing Formation. They have already passed several test drives in Slovakia and Hungary. Mechanical fine-tuning included adjustment of shock absorber settings, replacement of truck's electronics, and installation of a new turbocharged engine.

A lot of trucks will drop out of the race. With Tatra Phoenix, our team gains an advantage in speed. Competitors will face severe obstacles along the route to Buenos Aires. For example, in Bolivia the trucks will have to overcome the high altitude dunes at around 3,500 meters. Both racers and mechanics will have to test their endurance.

The odds are that Ales Loprais and Martin Kolomy will showcase their racing skills in tandem and reach the final destination.

One month is left before the major event among rally adventures. Our team with their Tatra Phoenix is already half-way to Paraguay. They are anticipating a 12-day off-road race across impassable routes of South America.

Follow the updates of Dakar Rally 2017 and root for InstaForex Loprais Team!

Promising trading instrument USD/INR pair Promising trading instrument USD/INR pair

In the early month, we added a new promising asset, the USD/INR currency pair, to the list of trading instruments. The pair is already featured in the platform and is available for trading.

The Indian rupee has overcome several serious challenges up to 2000. In 2000s, the rupee exchange rate stabilized. Nowadays, India takes the fourth place by GDP after the eurozone, the United States, and China. The Indian economic growth a year makes up 7.5% and the country holds the 15th place by it. India is one of the most successfully developing countries.

Expansion of trading and economic processes as well as India's participation in international capital flows will trigger faster growth in the rupee trading volume. The country's major economic sectors that attract billion dollars are electronics, pharmaceutical and chemical industry, telecommunication, non-ferrous industry, trading, and non-financial services. Growth rates of India's high-tech industry could beat those of the United States in the near future. The country's key investors are Singapore, Mauritius, and the US.
