Fundamental of Foreign Exchange Trading Foreign exchange trading also known as Forex Trading can be defined as a mean by which

one can easily trade on currency pairs. In foreign exchange trading you primarily deals with currency. As the name suggests – it is buying and selling of different currencies. The price of one currency in terms of another is called an exchange rate and the market is known as foreign exchange market, or the "FX" market. Today, it is considered to be the largest and the most profitable financial market in the world where currency trading is basically done between banks, financial institutions, governments and multinational companies. It operates 24 hours a day globally and facilitates you to place trades literally anytime of the day. Each trade you make may increase or decrease depending upon the movement of currency pair that you traded in. Talking about the best feature of foreign exchange trading that makes it diverse in comparison to other sectors of the world financial markets, are: • • Wider ease of understanding to all traders in all major currencies Guaranteed quantity and liquidity of the major currencies Sell or Buy with no restrictions, as you are trading currencies there is never a bad market for trading Extremely high efficiency comparative to other financial markets

Unlike any other financial market, here you can easily react to currency fluctuations that are generally caused by political, economical and social events without having to wait for exchanges to open. Besides this, a massive proportion of FX trading is driven by assumption and professional dealing, in which currencies are usually traded like any other commodity. In fact, foreign exchange trading can be a great way to earn little extra currency. So as an individual, if you wish to enter into the foreign exchange market, you must cautiously choose your broker. Moreover, select a company which has been doing well in this market for quite a long time. Just for the shake of earning extra money never take big risks by associating yourself with those companies that are new into the market. While trading make sure you purchase only when the currency is expected to increase in value. You must be able to understand when it is okay to take a risk. In forex trading rates and values always keep changing and in a matter of minutes rates may alter and so you must keep your business instincts always on alert. Finally, always try to learn to maximize your profits. Never be too contented with just one trading method in FX market.
