Forex is an acronym for foreign exchange. The foreign exchange market (also known as the currency market) is where one currency is traded for another. This process happens simultaneously when one currency is sold while another is bought at an agreed exchange price on the over-the-counter (OTC) market.

The Forex market therefore operates globally and has participants from all over the world. Because the fore market is global and includes all of the different time zones and business regions, it operates 24 hours a day, so you can trade at any time.

The Forex market operates on such a grand scale and is in constant operation because of the importance of currency exchange for the purpose of foreign trade and business. Corporations and individuals across the globe need to exchange currency for a number of reasons.

Multinational organisations need to be able to pay for their expenses in different countries where they operate for example. On a much smaller scale, travelers also need to exchange their home currency for that of their travel destination.

The forex market determines the different values of different currencies from around the world which is always changing. It’s unlikely that any currency will maintain the same value for more than a short time. The reason why exchange rates change is because the value of any one currency’s value fluctuates depending on it’s supply and demand. If there is a decrease in the demand for a currency or an increase in its supply, it’s value might go down. Similarly, an increase in the demand for a currency or the decrease in its supply can cause the value of that particular currency to increase.

Forex trading is appealing for a number of reasons:

1. It’s the largest and most liquid financial market globally.

2. Unlike other financial markets it doesn’t have a physical location or exchange. It trades 24 hours a day 5 days a week because it spans the globe. This means Forex trading opportunities are always available so you can trade early in the morning or after you get home from work. Whenever it suits you!

3. Unlike traditional financial markets, the start-up costs associated with the Forex market are low. You don’t need thousands of dollars. Ultimately you just need the drive and the no know to start earning money.

4. Transaction costs are low. When a forex transaction occurs (when you buy/sell money in one currency for another), there is a small fee. However due to the combination of the high volume of transactions that occur and the open and liquid nature of this market, the costs are so minimal they will barely have any effect on your trading profit.

5. You can earn money when the market goes up or down. In some financial markets the only way to make a profit is to start by buying low then selling high (going Long). Forex trading is different because you can buy a currency low to then sell it high, or you can sell it high to then buy it back low (Shorting). As long as the market is moving you can make a trading profit.

6. Because of the size and sheer magnitude of the forex market it’s impossible for governments or corporations to skew or take control of the market. Because the market is driven solely by demand and supply, trading conditions are ideal.

7. As long as you have an internet connection you can trade wherever you want.

Nothing in life is a ‘sure thing’ so it’s important that at all times we are diligent and make calculated decisions. Forex trading is no different. Here are some important tips all successful forex traders know:

1. Know when to cut your losses- it doesn’t matter how much knowledge you have, everyone makes mistakes. What’s important when it comes to forex trading is to know when to shut the appropriate trade down to minimise damage.

2. Remember, trading is not investing- While investors may hold onto their stock for months or even years, traders will go in and out of trades within a matter of minutes, hours or days. This also means using different methods for predicting when to trade and buy/sell. While investors rely mostly on fundamental analysis, traders rely more on technical analysis.

3. Stick to your plan- If you have placed a trade because you have confidence in your research and your prediction, don’t let small negative movements throw you off. Fluctuations happen, but don’t give up on your chosen trade.

4. Keep calm- When you are trading on the forex market you need to keep your cool and stay confident in your abilities. Trading is fast-paced and there are often large amounts of money at stake so it’s important you are able to stay calm and focused under pressure.

5. Knowledge is power- Information is your most valuable asset as a trader. Trends, cycles, statistics and market jargon are all important essentials that will make you a successful trader.
