Forex Trading

The Foreign Exchange Market, also known as Forex or Currency Market, is a global marketplace where currencies are traded. It actually determines the exchange rate for currencies worldwide. People participating in forex trading can either buy, sell, exchange or speculate on currency pairs such as EUR/USD and GBP/USD and eventually towards what you believe could potentially be more profitable.

Trading Volume

As far as trading volume is concerned, the foreign exchange market is by far the world’s largest financial market, with over $5 trillion traded daily. Trade CFDs on numerous FX pairs and benefit from tight spreads, fast order execution, highest volumes and liquidity. EUR/USD, USD/JPY and GBP/USD are the most popular and liquid among major currency pairs.

Forex Market Hours

Forex market hours are flexible and allow traders to trade currencies 24 hours a day, five days a week, except weekends. Taking advantage of this unique feature, when one market closes, another remains open, increasing therefore the liquidity available in currency markets.

Currency Pairs

Currencies are always traded in pairs, so each currency’s value interrelates with the value of the other. The main function of the foreign exchange market is to establish this relationship between how much of one country’s currency can another country buy and create the contract between ‘buyer’ and ’seller’, where the latter will pay the price difference at the contract execution time.
