There are so many options when it comes to investing. Traditional stock trading has been around for decades whilst modern breakthrough technology like cryptocurrencies have become recently popular. There are so many different markets that you can begin investing. Crypto, stocks, indices and EFTs are all familiar to most, forex trading has slipped through the cracks. Surprisingly, this is one of the biggest markets in the world. This article will educate you on what forex trading is, what a forex breaker does and how you can take advantage of them.

Forex Brokers

Forex brokers are people that operate in the foreign exchange market. This has become one of the most popular trading markets in the world. It is so popular that in Dubai it is actively encouraged. A regulated forex broker in Dubai can be a very lucrative position. However, the beauty of this market is that it can be accessed from anywhere.

What is Forex Trading?
Forex is a shortened form of the phrase foreign exchange. This refers to the market in which people are able to buy and sell international currency. It can also be referred to as FX trading. It is a relatively new form of trading, however. It is an excellent opportunity for those with small amounts of money available to invest. The investment is in exchange rate pairs. The idea is to trade one currency against another. For example, you may want to invest in the Euro against the Dollar, hoping that the euro will grow stronger than the dollar. This is how money is made.

How does it work?

Forex trading works like any other transaction you would make. Apart from the fact that when you sell, you are also making a purchase. There are three main ways to conduct these transactions:

Spot market: This is the easiest to understand as it happens “on the spot”. As well as this, it is based on current exchange rates. They are known as cash markets and represent the most basic type of transaction. You pay money and you get the equivalent amount of money in a different currency. Online trading platforms have made this type of changing so much more accessible. Because of this, it has become the most popular way to trade forex.

Forward Market: The forward market is slightly different. You don't trade for cash rather than a contract for a certain type of currency at a certain exchange rate on a specific date when the exchange will take place. This a private agreement between two parties which sets them apart from the Futures Market.

Futures Market: This is similar to trading on the forward market. It is built on the idea of agreeing a contract that will see a currency exchanged upon an agreed upon rate on a specific date. The futures market however is a legally binding agreement settled on an official commodities market.

Is it worth it?

Forex trading can be an excellent opportunity for traders with varying levels of experience. It provides a chance to participate in the global market. Though of course it comes with a risk as any investment does. It requires a keen mind and ample research but can reap huge rewards.
