The international currency market, shortly called FOREX or FX, is a global trading system for different currencies. With a daily turnover of more than $ 5.3 trillion, it is the largest and most dynamic market in the world. At the same time, the FOREX market is working on extremely simple rules.
Whether you sell 100 euros to buy dollars at the airport exchange bureau while you are waiting for your flight, or a large bank sells $ 100 million against Japanese yen to another bank, and in both cases you have FOREX deals. FOREX players range from huge financial institutions that run billions to regular “home” investors who trade a few hundred dollars.
Online FOREX trading
In recent years, thanks to the Internet, the FOREX market is no longer a reserved territory for big players, but has become accessible to anyone with a computer and several hundred leva to invest.
Here’s an example of what a FOREX deal is: You decide to buy 1 000 euros for dollars. The EUR/USD exchange rate you can buy at the moment is 1.4500 and you pay $ 1,450. Ten days later, the EUR/USD exchange rate at which you can sell is 1.5500 and you will receive $ 1,550. Starting $ 1,450, you already have $ 1,550, which means you have made a profit of $ 100.
