What is FOREX?

FOREX (FX) is the another short term for Foreign Exchange. It is the market exchange of the different currencies around the world.

You basically kinda been away participating in the FOREX market. What you are doing is essentially the core of what happens in the FOREX market.

For example, if we wanted to trade from Euro to Dollars or EUR/USD, then this format EUR/USD, the euro is the base currency and the US dollar is the counter currency. When you buy 1 euro, in exchange, you will have 1.12 US dollar.

When can you trade?
You can trade 24 hours a day, 5 days a week except Saturday and Sunday.

  • Forex trading, like any form of trading, is too risky.
