 Kali ini, Ketua Umno Bahagian Sungai Besar membakar keratan mirip Datuk Zaid Ibrahim susulan kenyataan bekas menteri undang-undang itu didakwanya mengguris perasaan Sultan Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah serta seluruh rakyat negeri itu.

Jamal membakar “Zaid” yang tertera perkataan “pengkhianat, kurang ajar, biadab” diluar Pusat Dagangan Dunia Putra (PWTC) sambil disaksikan lebih 20 ahli Umno.

Semalam, Zaid di media sosial menegur Sultan Selangor supaya berhati-hati dengan kata-kata beliau, kerana semua akan terkesan apabila negara terbakar. Zaid mengulas laporan media “Selangor ruler: Dr M will burn the whole country with his anger”.

“Saya rasa kami perlu ajar Zaid Ibrahim kali ini kerana perbuatan yang sangat biadap dan keterlaluan. Bagi saya, sudah sampai waktunya. Apa yang beliau buat itu langsung kami tak boleh terima,” kata Jamal kepada pemberita selepas membakar boneka mirip Zaid.

“Dia nak maki saya dia boleh maki saya 24 jam, siang dan malam pun tak apa, tetapi jangan sekali-kali menghina, mengaibkan, mengeluarkan perkataan biadap terhadap sultan kami.

“Saya nak beritahu Zaid Ibrahim langkah mayat kami dulu sebelum beliau berani mengeluarkan perkataan-perkataan cukup biadap kepada Sultan Selangor.”

Terdahulu, Jamal melakukan gimik sama di depan Ibu Pejabat Polis Daerah Dang Wangi selepas membuat laporan polis terhadap Zaid pada 3.00 petang tadi.

Pengerusi Perhubungan Umno Selangor Datuk Seri Noh Omar berkata Umno negeri merancang mengadakan tunjuk perasaan menyatakan sokongan kepada Sultan Selangor.


What Is Forex?
The foreign exchange market is the “place” where currencies are traded. Currencies are important to most people around the world, whether they realize it or not, because currencies need to be exchanged in order to conduct foreign trade and business. If you are living in the U.S. and want to buy cheese from France, either you or the company that you buy the cheese from has to pay the French for the cheese in euros (EUR). This means that the U.S. importer would have to exchange the equivalent value of U.S. dollars (USD) into euros. The same goes for traveling. A French tourist in Egypt can’t pay in euros to see the pyramids because it’s not the locally accepted currency. As such, the tourist has to exchange the euros for the local currency, in this case the Egyptian pound, at the current exchange rate.

The need to exchange currencies is the primary reason why the forex market is the largest, most liquid financial market in the world. It dwarfs other markets in size, even the stock market, with an average traded value of around U.S. $2,000 billion per day. (The total volume changes all the time, but as of August 2012, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) reported that the forex market traded in excess of U.S. $4.9 trillion per day.)

One unique aspect of this international market is that there is no central marketplace for foreign exchange. Rather, currency trading is conducted electronically over-the-counter (OTC), which means that all transactions occur via computer networks between traders around the world, rather than on one centralized exchange. The market is open 24 hours a day, five and a half days a week, and currencies are traded worldwide in the major financial centers of London, New York, Tokyo, Zurich, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore, Paris and Sydney – across almost every time zone. This means that when the trading day in the U.S. ends, the forex market begins anew in Tokyo and Hong Kong. As such, the forex market can be extremely active any time of the day, with price quotes changing constantly.

Spot Market and the Forwards and Futures Markets
There are actually three ways that institutions, corporations and individuals trade forex: the spot market, the forwards market and the futures market. The forex trading in the spot market always has been the largest market because it is the “underlying” real asset that the forwards and futures markets are based on. In the past, the futures market was the most popular venue for traders because it was available to individual investors for a longer period of time. However, with the advent of electronic trading, the spot market has witnessed a huge surge in activity and now surpasses the futures market as the preferred trading market for individual investors and speculators. When people refer to the forex market, they usually are referring to the spot market. The forwards and futures markets tend to be more popular with companies that need to hedge their foreign exchange risks out to a specific date in the future.

What is the spot market?
More specifically, the spot market is where currencies are bought and sold according to the current price. That price, determined by supply and demand, is a reflection of many things, including current interest rates, economic performance, sentiment towards ongoing political situations (both locally and internationally), as well as the perception of the future performance of one currency against another. When a deal is finalized, this is known as a “spot deal”. It is a bilateral transaction by which one party delivers an agreed-upon currency amount to the counter party and receives a specified amount of another currency at the agreed-upon exchange rate value. After a position is closed, the settlement is in cash. Although the spot market is commonly known as one that deals with transactions in the present (rather than the future), these trades actually take two days for settlement.

What are the forwards and futures markets?
Unlike the spot market, the forwards and futures markets do not trade actual currencies. Instead they deal in contracts that represent claims to a certain currency type, a specific price per unit and a future date for settlement.

In the forwards market, contracts are bought and sold OTC between two parties, who determine the terms of the agreement between themselves.

In the futures market, futures contracts are bought and sold based upon a standard size and settlement date on public commodities markets, such as the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. In the U.S., the National Futures Association regulates the futures market. Futures contracts have specific details, including the number of units being traded, delivery and settlement dates, and minimum price increments that cannot be customized. The exchange acts as a counterpart to the trader, providing clearance and settlement.

Both types of contracts are binding and are typically settled for cash for the exchange in question upon expiry, although contracts can also be bought and sold before they expire. The forwards and futures markets can offer protection against risk when trading currencies. Usually, big international corporations use these markets in order to hedge against future exchange rate fluctuations, but speculators take part in these markets as well. (For a more in-depth introduction to futures, see Futures Fundamentals.)

Note that you’ll see the terms: FX, forex, foreign-exchange market and currency market. These terms are synonymous and all refer to the forex market.
