The currency market, or more commonly known as the Forex market (FX), is one of the largest and the most liquid asset class in the world. Recent figures show that daily FX volume is about $6.6 trillion. It encompasses a wide variety of tradable instruments, including cash contracts and futures contracts.

The forex market is not based in a central location or exchange, so it is open to trade 24 hours a day, five days a week.

Why trade FX?

icon
Forex is the most traded market in the world. 24 hours availability means you don’t experience overnight gaps, unlike other asset classes.
icon
High liquidity makes it easy for large volumes of transactions to go through quickly without a major impact on bid/ask spreads.
icon
High leverage option lets you take a big position with minimal upfront margins and offers you an opportunity to make large profits. However, you must keep in mind that leverage is a double-edged sword and can also greatly amplify losses.
icon
High volatility creates multiple trading opportunities for traders.
icon
It is a highly popular hedging tool, widely used by traders/investors who need to mitigate the risks associated with exchange rate fluctuations on their spot currency holdings.

Currency pairs are generally of three types

Major

Major currency pairs are the most popular and liquid ones. Six most actively-traded Forex pairs are: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, AUD/USD, USD/CAD, and USD/CHF.

Minor

Non USD currency pairs fall under the minor currency pairs category. Examples include EUR/GBP, EUR/CHF, GBP/JPY and CHF/JPY.

Emerging

Emerging currencies, also known as exotic pairs, are made up of a major currency paired with an emerging/small, but the strong economy. Emerging currency pairs include USD/NOK, USD/HKD and EUR/CZK.

How to trade in forex markets?

Currency is always traded in pairs. When you’re trading currency pairs, you’re effectively buying one currency and selling the other currency. The first currency is called the 'base currency’ and the second currency is known as 'counter currency' or ‘quoted currency’.

The forex market offers traders the unique advantage of trading opportunities in both rising and falling markets.

For example, if you choose to trade EUR/USD (Euro/US dollar) and you think the value of the EUR will rise against USD, you go long (buy). If you think EUR will fall against USD, you go short (sell). If your prediction is correct, you make a profit. If your prediction is incorrect, you would make a loss. Remember, losses can exceed deposits.
