Risk Management is a strategy to manage risk and limit it by putting a stop order. Stop order helps traders to control the risk from losing the entire margin.<br /> I put a stop order 50 points as an insurance of the profit.

  13. 13. FDI Based Explanations: Dunning’s Eclectic Paradigm<br />Three conditions determine whether or not a company will internalize via FDI:<br />Ownership-specific advantages – knowledge, skills, capabilities, relationships, or physical assets that form the basis for the firm’s competitive advantage<br />Location-specific advantages – advantages associated with the country in which the MNE is invested, including natural resources, skilled or low cost labor, and inexpensive capital<br />Internalization advantages – control derived from internalizing foreign-based manufacturing, distribution, or other value chain activities<br />10<br />
  14. 14. Two Types of International Collaborative Ventures<br />Equity-based joint ventures result in the formation of a new legal entity. In contrast to the wholly-owned FDI, the firm collaborates with local partner(s) to reduce risk and commitment of capital.<br />Project-based alliances do not require equity commitment from the partners but simply a willingness to cooperate in R&D, manufacturing, design, or any other value-adding activity. Since project-based alliances have a narrowly defined scope of activities and timeline, they provide greater flexibility to the firm than equity-based ventures.<br />11<br />
