What is forex trading

The foreign exchange market or Forex is the market where one currency is traded for another. The Forex market is one of the largest and most liquid markets of our time where the large number of daily transactions exceeds the total daily turnover of any other market. Additionally, the Forex market is the largest and most promising industry in the world operating 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, having a turnover of 3 trillion dollars per day.

To be more specific, in all kinds of investments, a foreign exchange transaction takes place, whether in international trade, imports or exports or sensibly in any business. Just as in regular markets were fruit are being bought and sold, the same happens in the stock market where we buy and sell stocks. The only difference in the
Forex market is that we buy and sell currencies, as this is our product.

There are more than 100 currency pairs that can be traded and the currency exchange rates are consistent throughout the whole world. For example is the exchange rate of the GBP in relation to the Euro is at a given price (1.225) in London, it would be exactly the same in any other country around the world.
