What is Forex?

Forex is short for foreign exchange, but a more exact definition is to trade one currency for another. Practically, this means that you’re buying one currency and selling another simultaneously in anticipation that you can generate returns from the changing values between the two.

Values between any two currencies are constantly changing, for several reasons that mostly concern the economic conditions between the countries in question. Traders can look towards economic reports that are released periodically to determine which way the relationship between two currencies might move.

Forex/CFD Trading With Leverage

Traders can trade CFDs on forex on margin, meaning that they’re able to open larger positions with relatively small amounts of capital. Margin trading is possible due to leverage, which help magnify returns, but should be applied with caution since it can magnify losses as well.

Positions opened with leverage can generate more returns faster but can also fall more quickly when the currency pair moves in the wrong direction. This means that you may receive a margin call faster or more rapidly reduce and/or lose all available trading capital.

The Benefits of Trading Forex/CFDs

The forex market is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, meaning there’s always action and opportunity available around-the-clock. It’s also the largest global interbank financial market, and makes the equities and commodities markets look tiny in comparison with over $5.3 billion in daily volume.

Savvy traders can always find opportunity in the forex market, but it requires a dedication to knowledge and a careful assessment of risk. To learn more about the advantages of trading forex/CFDs sign up now with Investous.
