What is Forex?
The Forex (FOReign EXchange) market appeared at the end of the 1970s after many countries decided to unpeg their currency value from that of the US dollar or gold. This led to the forming of an international market on which currency could be exchanged and traded freely. Today, Forex is the largest financial market in the world. It doesn’t matter where you live or even where you are right now; as long as you have access to the internet, a trading terminal (a special program for trading Forex) and an account with a Forex broker, all the instruments and opportunities of Forex are open to you.
Who Are Traders?
Traders are people who work on the Forex market, trying to ascertain the direction in which prices of a currency will go and make a trade for the purchase or sale of that currency. As such, by buying a currency cheaper and selling it for more, traders earn money on the Forex market. Traders make their decisions based on the analysis of all factors which can affect prices, allowing them to work out precisely in which direction the prices are moving. Profit can be made trading Forex on the fall in price of a currency, just as profit can be made on a rise in the price of a particular currency. Furthermore, traders can make trades on the Forex market from anywhere in the world, whether it be London or Timbuktu.
