About the Forex Trading Market
The foreign exchange market is the virtual location where global currencies are traded. Though the total volume ebbs and flows, the Bank for International Settlements reported that the forex market trades in excess of $4.9 trillion U.S. per day. This makes it the largest electronic market, essentially dwarfing the stock market.
What is Currency Trading?
Trading currencies is the act of making predictions based on minuscule variations in the global economy and buying and selling accordingly. The exchange rate between two currencies is the rate at which one currency will be exchanged for another. Forex traders use available data to analyze currencies and countries like you would companies, thereby using economic forecasts to gain an idea of the currency's true value.
The Benefits of Forex Trading
Unlike stocks, forex trades have low, if any, commissions and fees. Even so, new forex traders are always advised to take a conservative approach and use orders, like stop-loss, to minimize losses. High leverage, which should be prudently applied, gives traders the opportunity to achieve dramatic results with far less capital than necessary for other markets. Forex trading requires training and strategy, but can be a profitable field for individuals looking for a lower risk endeavor.
