Forex – you have definitely heard about it, you’ve seen it being mentioned on the financial channel or even seen it being mentioned by prim and proper newscasters on the BBC or Bloomberg, but do you actually have any idea what it is all about? Sure, you might have a vague idea about it being something to do with currency. But how does the entire system work? How is it you can make money from money you know nothing about? This article is to educate you, a sort of Forex made easy; telling you what Forex trading is all about.

The first thing you need to know is that the Forex market deals strictly in currencies. Typically, people who trade in Forex buy a large amount of another countries currency in exchange for paying for another currencies quantity. Confusing? Yes it can be. Basically it is the buying and selling of different forms of money and you make money when one currency gets stronger or when grows weaker. The market will always try to balance itself out when one currency gets weaker, so you can actually make money both ways. A weak currency would mean that other currencies may be appreciating, and it is this balancing-out of the market that traders can leverage on. Here the U.S. dollar is the normal benchmark but arguably, some have the opinion that in today’s markets, it should be the Euro or even the British Sterling Pound.

Being the hugest and most liquid financial market in today’s world, it sees the participation of banks, a large amount of commercial companies, hedge funds, investing firms, brokers, trading firms and even other smaller players. Multi national companies who have a lot to play with and the rest by smaller firms, brokers and individuals take up most of the action. The distinct uniqueness of the Forex market when compared to other markets is the fact that it is a true 24 hour market, accessible at any time, liquid beyond measure, nomadic in nature and there are a plethora of factors that can affect exchange rates around the world – and the way you can make or lose money. If you haven’t already noticed, the top players, the top currency traders in the market happen to be banks – banks deal with money and it is only natural that they trade in it as well.

For a better understanding of how Forex trading works, let’s take an example. You buy let’s say 100,000 dollars of the U.S dollar by selling the British pound at a particular price. The reason for this is because you know through your media monitoring and watching the U.S market that they are coming out of a recession and re-development is in the works. Trading is back at full swing and employment numbers are running high. This means demands go up and the elasticity of the market demands that prices go up and trading intensifies. Part of your money will go to the U.S. or it might be spread out in different companies (depending on where the U.S. has stakes in) and at the end of the day, the dollar gets stronger – when you bought it in its weaker stage. Voila. You have made money.
