What Is Forex And How Does It Work?

Truth be told; immediately the term “forex” is mentioned, a lot of emotions is being invoked. So many people consider the forex market as a quick way to make millions of dollars. And a considerable lot also consider the forex market as gambling, where, if care is not taken can plunge traders into a financial disaster. Whatever be the case, almost everybody has dipped his/her hands in trading.

If you are a newbie in the forex world, this article was curated with you in mind. In this article, we will walk you through the basics of the forex market, how it works, as well as how the spread works in the market. So, if you are ready to learn, then let’s get started.

What Is Forex?

The term forex is used to connote the foreign market. More often than not, a lot of traders use the acronym “FX” to describe forex. Forex is the buying and selling of different currencies across the world. Forex market is the largest form of exchange, trading over $3 trillion daily. Whether you are a private investor or you are an investor who works for an institution, the forex market has a place for you.

The mission or intention of the forex market is pretty simple; just as other markets (stocks, cryptos, etc), you want to buy a currency at a lower price and sell it at a higher price to make a profit. The total amount of currency conversion in a day can cause the volatility of other currencies. This volatility is the major reason why the market is so lucrative to traders because it creates an opportunity for them to make high profits, but caution must be applied while trading, otherwise, you can lose everything you have worked for in life.

Now you know what forex is, let’s explain how the currency market works.

How Do Currency Markets Work?

Unlike other markets such as commodities, shares, and cryptocurrencies, forex maket doesn’t require an exchange before trading can be effected. It is a trade between two persons, in an over-the-counter market. It is operated by major banks across four centers, namely, London, New York, Tokyo, and Sydney. These centers are in different time zones. Since the market is not centralized in a particular location, you can trade forex 24/5.

There are 3 types of forex market:

● Spot forex market: This type of forex trade takes place on the spot; hence, the name. It is the physical exchange of different currencies between friends or family members.
● Forward Forex Market: In this type of market, an agreement is usually reached for the buying/selling of a particular currency at a future date.
● Future forex maket: This is very similar to the forward forex maket, only that it is legally binding on both parties that want to execute the trade.

How To Trade Forex

There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to forex trading. There are different ways to trade forex; they all work similarly – buying and selling of different currencies to make a profit. Before now, forex trading was majorly done through a forex broker, but the trend has since changed owing to the rise of online trading. Traders can now trade forex right from the comfort of their homes or offices using derivatives like CFD trading.

CFDs are leveraged products that will enable you to take a position for a fraction of the full value of the trade. CFDs will help you decide whether or not the market will rise or fall in value. They can also help you magnify your profits and at the same time make you lose money if the market moves against you.
