WHAT IS THE FOREX MARKET ALL ABOUT?
The forex market (also known as FX or currency exchange market) is a global and decentralized platform through which forex traders can buy, sell, exchange, and speculate on currencies. The major commodities in the forex market are currencies, and they are traded in pairs. The whole idea of forex trading is to buy a currency pair in hopes that its value will go up, at a point which the trader can sell and make some profits or vice versa. At this point, it is important to note that the value of currencies do not just appreciate or depreciate in their own accord. They are affected by factors like recession, political activities, interest rates, inflation rates, a nation’s current account, government depth, natural disaster, etc. All these factors act as indicators to forex traders as to when it is right to sell or buy a particular currency pair – which is where speculation comes in.
