What is Forex?

FOREX (FOReign EXchange) is an international currency exchange market. It was founded on January 8, 1976, as a result of the gold standard cancellation, when members of the International Monetary Fund refused to set a fixed price for gold and limits on changes in the currency rates.

Forex is an “over-the-counter market”. Trading on the this market occurs around the clock (except for bank holidays) because most of the financial transactions occur between major global banks, which are located in different parts of the world.

Commercial and central banks are organizations that establish market rules. But other participants, such as large corporations that are involved in the foreign economic activities, investment funds, major brokers, dealing companies and private individuals also take part in the trading process and have an opportunity to affect quotes.


What is traded on Forex?

Forex trading is carried out using a financial instrument called a currency pair. The currency pair consists of two currencies, which are written in the form of relation to each other. For example USD/CHF. In this instrument contains two currencies. On the first place stands a base currency which acts as a commodity. On the second place is a quoted currency which is used to pay for the first one.

As a rule forex trading is carried out using lots (1 lot - 100,000 base currencies). In such conditions, a trader needs a reliable and trusted broker who can offer a leverage (an instrument that lets one trade bigger sums, having only a part of them). For example, with a 1:50 leverage, you can make a deal which requires $250 with only $5 available on your trading account.

How to start trading on Forex?
