Sometimes we are so engrossed in how our own Forex trading is going, and how well our current students are doing, we forget that too many people still don’t understand what the Forex market is and how it could be working for them.
The Foreign Currency Exchange market is often referred to as the Forex market. Currency trading involves the virtual purchasing and selling of currencies from all around the world. It is a more than $4 trillion market, making it the largest financial market in the world.
Unlike other financial markets, the Forex market has no physical location and no central exchange. This enables you to trade from practically anywhere, 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.
Why trade the Forex market?
With more than $4 trillion exchanged in the Forex market each day, your ability to capitalize is significantly increased compared to other markets. Aside from the ample opportunity this global market offers, other perks currency traders enjoy are:
Accessibility: The Forex market trades 24 hours a day, 5 1/2 days per week from virtually anywhere.
Volatility: The Forex market is constantly moving, giving you increased trading opportunities
Recession-Proof: The Forex makes money when the market moves. This means you can earn even when the market moves downward.
Just like any other venture you would consider, it does not make sense to enter the Forex market without a full understanding of how it works — and how to profit from it at any time.
