What is the Forex Market?


Forex, FX, or Foreign Exchange, is the simultaneous exchange of one country’s currency for that of another. FOREXYARD offers a leading online trading platform for individuals that desire to profit from the exchange rate between two currencies. To accomplish this inventors buy or sell one currency for another, with the hope of profiting when the value of the currencies changes their favor as a result of local events around the globe. The Forex Exchange has more daily volume – total transactions- than any other market in the world.
In the FX market you can buy or sell different currencies. When you buy a currency, you are said to be going “long”. And when you sell a currency, you are said to be going “short”. As the value of one currency rises or falls relative to it complementary, traders decide to buy or sell currency pairs in order to gain a profit. Placing a trade in the foreign exchange market is simple and the mechanics of a trade are virtually identical to those found in other public markets.
