Forex Strategy & Secrets: The Basis
The Forex market is principally an international trading currency market which is managed by an enormous network of brokers and sub brokers and is open 6 days a week. Unlike a stock exchange, a Forex market deals in different currencies and their exchange rates. This market principally came into being to facilitate international trade. For example trade between Great Britain and USA at a point of time was done in USD and Pounds. The transaction here went through a currency transfer that is a Pound was converted into some Dollars.
The Forex market today is a dematerialized market where all currency trade is carried out though the Internet accounts of the brokers, sub brokers and investors. Now a Forex investor who is based in the United States who possesses USD will invest some amount in the European Euro, let's say $10. Upon better economic performance, the international value of the Euro will rise. In such a situation, the investor can re-convert the currency into USD again. However, now as a result of the rise in the value of the Euro, it will get converted into say $12 to $13. This is exactly how one makes profit on the Forex market. There are several different strategies that can be used to make a very hefty profit in the market.
