What is Forex Trading?

The Foreign Exchange market (known as forex or FX) is a market where you can exchange one currency for another for immediate or future use. The market boasts a wide range of participants, including banks, brokers, corporations and individuals and is one of the largest and most liquid markets in the world. The market consists of a network of counterparties who buy and sell currencies from one another at an agreed market price, either for speculation or for hedging currency risk.

For most people, foreign exchange is only relevant when planning an overseas holiday. However, for currency traders, forex trading offers a great opportunity to earn profits from trading. The forex market operates 24 hours a day, five days a week giving ample opportunity to trade and make a profit around your own schedule. Currency values are affected by political and macroeconomic news, technical analysis and investor psychology so market prices are often fluctuating. This enables traders and investors to speculate on the future value of a currency, and while rewards can be huge, these opportunities do not come without risk.
