When it works, Forex (foreign exchange) trading engages in arbitrage dependent on the changing values of various currencies. Some of the safest investing strategies take benefits of arbitrage, the process of using known gaps in price and value between regions in order to make a profit on the difference.

I am all for the use of arbitrage. It makes very good sense.

Forex trading is the means through which one currency is changed into another. When trading forex , you are always trading a currency pair – selling one currency while simultaneously buying another.

These threads crop up from time to time and are often fun.

For example, what if I said there are traders out there who think that when they open an account in USD and they buy EUR/CHF, some of their US Dollars are converted by the broker into Swiss Francs which are then sold in order to buy some Euros. And when they close the position, the Euros are sold and the buyers pay for them in US Dollars and that’s what ends up in their account.

In the simplest terms, forex trading is the process of buying and selling currency pairs. To start with, you can join the school of pipsology. The course will help you understand the basics of forex and you will get to know what strategies can work for you and which ones you must avoid.

Forex is also known as foreign exchange or FX trading. It’s the exchange of one currency for another.

…which is what the banks are doing but which is exactly not what we are not doing.

“Forex” is an abbreviation for foreign exchange and it can be defined as the exchange or trading of currencies. Market participants can buy and sell the currency of almost any country against another.

All foreign exchange transactions involve two currencies, for example the EUR/USD (Euro/Dollars) pair. Its exchange rate is in continuous fluctuation, and that fluctuation is at the very heart of currency trading.

If you think the Euro is going to rise versus the U.S. Dollar, then you would buy EUR/USD. Conversely, if you think its value will depreciate, then you would sell EUR/USD. This sums up the basic mechanism of currency trading.

A Forex transaction involves everything from the simple currency transactions that tourists often make when travelling, to the multi-billion dollar transactions executed by large corporations, financial institutions and governments.

Forex, or FOReign EXchange, is the exchange of one country’s currency for another country’s currency.

Example: Sam lives in the US and is traveling to Europe. Sam has USD and needs to buy EUR. The current exchange rate is 1.3000 USD for 1 EUR. Sam buys 1000 EUR by selling 1300 USD (1000 x 1.3000). This is a foreign currency exchange or Forex.
