  • 4. The Forex Market & Forex Trading W: www.forexcollege.co.za E: info@forexcollege.co.za  The word FOREX is derived from Foreign Exchange and is the largest financial market in the world. Forex is often abbreviated to FX.  The Forex Market is open 24 hours per day 5 ½ Days per week and has an estimated $4 Trillion in turnover every day. This tremendous turnover is more than the combined turnover of all the worlds' stock markets on any given day. This tends to lead to a very liquid market and thus a desirable market to trade. 4  Forex is one of the fastest growing areas for new traders to get started. The main reason for this is the low entry level (only a few hundred dollars for mini accounts) and the fact that it is fairly straightforward to trade.  The Internet has leveled the playing field and it is now easily in the reach of most traders.

Don't listen to CNN, your broker, or a friend. You must do your own analysis and have confidence in your game plan to be a successful trader. 6 Sometimes what will happen during the day comes down to knowing yourself. Are you relaxed or distracted? Are you prepared or not? If you can't trade that day, don't! - And don't overanalyze the reasons why or why not.

  • 30. IFEsolutionLearn the Skill to Trade the Forex Market Professionally W: www.forexcollege.co.za E: info@forexcollege.co.za Learn the Skill of FOREX TRADING 30 Interactive Forex Education  What is traded in the Forex Market?  The simple answer is money. Forex trading is the simultaneous buying of one currency and the selling of another. Currencies are traded through a broker or dealer, and are traded in pairs; for example the Euro dollar and the US dollar (EUR/USD) or the British pound and the Japanese Yen (GBP/JPY).  Because you're not buying anything physical, this kind of trading can be confusing. Think of buying a currency as buying a share in a particular country. When you buy, say, Japanese Yen, you are in effect buying a share in the Japanese economy, as the price of the currency is a direct reflection of what the market thinks about the current and future health of the Japanese economy.

A contract signifies a standard size of units purchased or sold by an investor. Each contract will have a well defined contract size.  To buy a contract means you will have to enter into an agreement with your broker, as to when the contract of the underlying company shall be transferred from the buyer to the seller, or vice versa. The price, time and date of this transfer shall be specified in the contract. This implies that both parties are obligated to honour the contract at a specified price and time.
