What is Forex?

Forex is an online marketplace where people can buy and sell currencies in pairs by checking their live rates from different online dealers (brokers) throughout the world.
As there is no physical location where currency trading takes place, forex is a decentralized market.

The forex trading volume per day

averages at approximately $5 trillion, which makes this market the biggest and most liquid one in the world.

How does forex investing work?

To better understand forex trading, picture an online global network where people exchange currencies in pairs at an agreed price.

BASE QUOTE

The first currency you can see in the pair is the base currency, and the second one is the quote currency.

When the price of the base currency jumps, the pair’s value also goes up.

When the price of the base currency reduces, then the pair’s value decreases.

Investors have two options to trade:

They can either go long and buy the pair if they think the price will increase

or

They can go short and sell the pair if they believe the price will go down
