What is Forex

Forex (or sometimes just FX) is short for foreign exchange, and is the largest financial market in the world. Simply put, it’s how individuals and businesses convert one currency to another.
FX transactions worth trillions of dollars take place every day, and unlike stocks or commodities there’s no central exchange. Instead, currencies are traded by a global network of banks, dealers and brokers, which means you can trade any time, day or night, Monday to Friday.

FX prices are influenced by a range of different factors, including interest rates, inflation, government policy, employment figures and demand for imports and exports.
And because of the sheer volume of currency traders and the amount of money exchanged, price movements can happen very quickly, making currency trading not only the largest financial market in the world, but also one of the most volatile.

How Does it Work?

Forex prices are always quoted in currency pairs. This is because you are effectively buying one currency while selling the other. Each currency in the pair is known by a three letter currency code, such as AUD/USD.
The first currency listed in a pair is known as the base currency and the second currency is known as the quote currency. A forex price indicates how much one unit of the base currency will buy of the counter currency.

Why Forex Trade?

Forex trading enables you to speculate on the relative strength of one currency against another. The large number of traders and immense quantity of currency traded on a daily basis give the forex market exceptionally high liquidity. This means it’s a very easy market for anyone to access – you can normally buy a currency on demand, because another trader somewhere will be willing to sell, or vice versa.

In trading forex you generally only need a small margin to get started, there are low transaction costs, and you can take advantage of high levels of leverage. It should always be kept in mind that leverage not only magnifies your potential profits but also your potential losses. It is possible to lose much more than your initial margin if the market turns sharply against you.
