Forex is a $4 trillion a day market, with most trading concentrated in only a few currencies. Due to there always being so many people trading at the same time it typically makes it very easy to get in to and out of trades at any time, even in large sizes. There are many other advantages too such as:-
Forex never sleeps
Trading goes on all around the world during different countries’ business hours. You can, therefore, trade major currencies at any time, 24 hours per day. Since there are no set exchange hours, it means that there is also something happening at almost any time of the day or night.
Go long (buy) or short ( sell)
Unlike many other financial markets, where it can be difficult to sell short, there are no limitations on shorting currencies. If you think a currency will go up, you can buy it. If you think it will fall, you can sell it. Allowing you the possibility of making money no matter which direction it goes in.
Low trading costs
We do not charge any extra commissions as you would espect to pay with a bank or a high street currency exchange provider. The cost of trading is the spread between the buy price and the sell price, which is always displayed on your trading screen.
Because of the deep liquidity available in the forex market, you can trade forex with considerable leverage. This can allow you to take advantage of even the smallest moves in the market. Leverage is a double-edged sword, of course, as it can significantly increase your losses as well as your gains.
As the world becomes more and more global, investors hunt for opportunities anywhere they can. If you want to take a broad opinion and invest in another country (or sell it short!), Forex is an easy way to gain exposure.
