Learn Forex Basic Concepts

First question question I usually being asked when I say to people that “I trade Forex” is : WHAT IS FOREX?

Forex is short for foreign exchange market, which involves buying or selling currency pairs.  There are actually three ways that institutions and individuals can trade Forex: the spot market, the forwards market and the futures market. Usually people referring to Forex they mean spot market – which is the ‘physical’ market where currencies are bought or sold at current market price and are settled in cash on the spot. Forex is similar with stock market – investors or speculators can buy a currency if they expect its price to rise in the future or they can sell a currency if they expect that its price to fall.
