Forex, also known as foreign exchange, FX or currency trading, is a decentralized global market where all the world’s currencies trade.

Many investors have heard of forex trading, but some may know little about what it means or how it’s done. Others may simply be interested in dabbling in trading currencies. In any case, they can benefit from receiving some direction on the matter. In the following article, we’ve answered five of the biggest questions about forex trading, including why you would consider it, the risks of doing so, and what it all means.
What Does Trading Forex Mean?
Trading forex means making transactions that involve currencies in the foreign exchange market. This could mean buying a certain currency pair, such as EUR/USD, based on the expectation the euro will appreciate relative to the U.S. dollar. Alternatively, an investor could sell the same pair, based on the belief the common currency will depreciate against the U.S. dollar.
In addition to making basic purchase and sale transactions, traders have many ways to take positions on currency pairs, including spot contracts, forwards, derivatives and contracts for difference.
Why Should I Trade Forex?
There are several reasons investors might opt to trade currencies instead of making use of other opportunities.
Accessibility: Forex trading takes place on many different exchanges across the world, and as a result, investors can make currency trades 24 hours a day during weekdays. The forex market is also the largest capital market in the world, involving more than US$5 trillion in notional value worth of transactions per day.
Liquidity: Because there is so much activity, the global forex markets provide substantial liquidity to traders. While certain assets may be more difficult to buy and sell, traders interested in currencies will likely find substantial opportunities. Liquidity risk can occur around major news events if liquidity providers seek to limit their exposure to market volatility.
Leverage: Investors can potentially access far more leverage when trading currencies than they can when trading other assets. However, it is important to keep in mind that risk is inherent to investment. While using leverage to make larger trades can amplify returns, it can also amplify the size of losses.
Global Exposure: Forex trading provides investors with an opportunity to obtain exposure to economies across the world. By taking a more international approach, traders might diversify more successfully or potentially achieve higher returns by putting their money to work in areas that have greater potential. Once again, the risk is inherent to investment, so no returns are guaranteed and investors must conduct their due diligence on regions.
Low Trading Expenses: Because there are so many buyers and sellers, spreads are low and trading costs are modest.
How Risky Is Forex Trading?
Like any form of investment, forex trading involves risk. The currency markets can experience sharp fluctuations, just like the stock, bond or commodity markets. Therefore, investors interested in forex trading are encouraged to conduct their due diligence and/or consult an independent financial advisor before making any transactions.
In terms of specific risks, the forex market can present investors with less liquidity risk because of this particular market’s highly liquid nature. In other words, there is less risk that an investor will find himself unable to buy or sell a currency pair because he doesn’t have another market participant to take part in a transaction. Liquidity risk can increase around major news events.
These are just tips from the iceberg, more post coming on how to make money this year.
