Dirgin went on to state that future decisions on the European Stability Mechanism are likely to have a major impact on the foreign exchange markets in the coming months. He predicted that liquidity would also be a key issue for investors, due to the appreciation of long-term financing in the global economy.

Also speaking at the conferences, Pavel Kasparov, Analyst-Instructor of the International Academy of Investments and Trading, official partner of FOREX CLUB in Russia and the CIS, said: “Investors are setting more and more requirements not only to the profitability of investment vehicles but also to their stability in a crisis situation. Traditionally popular saving instruments such as bank deposits and real estate no longer meet the growing expectations of investors. The current situation in the Euro Zone has led not only to rising sovereign debt rates for Southern Euro Zone countries and Euro volatility, but also an increasing risk of a collapse of the economics of the European Union.

“In this environment of growing risks, not all investment instruments show the same yield growth. Bank deposits and investment in real estate provide investors with a low yield in an environment of heightened risk and at a level below the risk-return demands of investors. That’s why there is an increasing demand for investment vehicles that combine greater returns with a higher resistance to the financial crisis.”
