  • What is Forex? Forex trading for beginners

    The foreign exchange market, also known as Forex or FX, is the largest financial market in the world. This beginners guide will help you to start trading Forex like a pro.

    If youve ever travelled to another country, you usually had to find a currency exchange broker and then exchange (swap) your local currency into the currency of the country you are visiting. This is the basic principle of the Forex market, buying currencies when the price is going up and selling currencies when the price is going down.

    You may have heard of the New York stock exchange (NYSE) and thought to yourself that this is where the real money is being made.
