Forex differs from other markets mainly in that it does not take place on a stock exchange. Not only are investors involved in currency transactions, but so too are banks, hedge and investment funds, insurance companies and other. Currency pairs are always traded here, the best known of which is the USD/EUR. Also the greatest interest is in the Japanese yen, the Swiss franc and the British pound.
how it works
Investors monitor exchange rate movements and then buy or sell accordingly with the aim of gaining as much as possible on the subsequent sale. Exchange rates usually fluctuate according to the economic strength of the given country, inflation and other factors. The advantage of this market is that you can trade on it 24 hours a day, there are never any restrictions, and it all depends on the skill and investment abilities of each individual. And you can also open a long or short position.
Forex is a relatively speculative way of making money, but the advantage is that you can also operate with small sums. For this reason Forex is one of the most popular and widely used markets in the world, where even complete beginners can start, and naturally NelsonFX also offers it. Still, it is always necessary to remember that we are taking a risk, but one that naturally you will enjoy.
