Foreign Exchange Market

The foreign exchange market (Forex, FX, or currency market) is among the fastest growing segments of the financial markets. It offers unmatched potential for profitable trading in any market condition or any stage of the business cycle. Currencies move based on the perception of traders about the relationships between countries on multiple levels, both economic and political. The most important influences on currency values are economic growth rates, interest rates, inflation rates, central bank policies, liquidity levels, credit markets, fiscal balances, capital flows, trade balances, and foreign policies. Traders and investors can trade currencies via the spot market or the futures market, or by investing in currency exchange-traded funds (ETFs) or mutual funds.
