Forex sometimes referred to as just FX, is the most liquid market in the world and largest in relation to daily transaction volumes. It involves speculation on the direction of foreign currencies. The trade volume for Forex is around US$5 trillion per day.

Unlike the other markets, currency trading does not take place on a regulated exchange. Trading with currencies doesn’t just involve investors, but banks, hedge and investment funds, insurance companies and other institutions. Currency pairs are always traded, with the Dollar/ Euro being the most popular pair among others such as the Japanese Yen, Swiss Franc, and Pound Sterling.

How it works

Investors monitor fluctuations in foreign currency and buy or sell accordingly. The goal is to make as much profit as possible on the following transaction. Exchange rates usually fluctuate in response to the performance of the country’s economy, rate of inflation and other factors. The advantage of this market is that one can trade 24 hours a day (no restrictions exist anywhere), depending on one’s investment skills and astuteness.

With Forex, it is about a relatively speculative way to make money, but an advantage is that it can also operate with modest amounts of money. However, one must always be aware of the risks associated with this kind of trading.

How to invest

Simply create a trading account, deposit your funds, sign into the application and you are ready to start. In Forex, pairs of currencies are traded and you always speculate that one of the currencies will appreciate or depreciate against the other. If you believe that the euro will weaken against the dollar, you would buy the EUR/USD currency pair. The best known currency pairs are EUR/USD, USD/JPY and GBP/USD. The behaviour of currency pairs is not always easy to predict.
