Reasons To Trade In The FOREX Market

If you asked Forex traders the number one reason they trade Forex, majority of them would say, profit potential! There is a unique and potentially very profitable opportunity offered through cash/spot FOREX markets regardless of the condition of the market. The advantages of FOREX trading are:

  • Around the Clock Market – A trader can trade anytime that they think market conditions are favorable; Forex offers a 24-hour market, 5-Days a week. This is particularly convenient for those who wish to trade Forex on a part-time basis.You can easily find markets to trade that will not conflict with your work schedule. There is basically no schedule that the Forex market can not accommodate.
  • Easy In & Easy Out – A trader can enter or exit the market almost totally at will; no other market offers as much liquidity. Whether you are an individual trader with a small amount of money, or work for a major corporation or bank with millions of dollars, you can still trade what you please because of this global market.
  • Leverage in Forex – There are very few execution barriers and no limits are placed on daily trading. The leverage available in Forex is much higher than equity markets. A leverage ratio of up to 100:1 in comparison to 2:1 in the equity markets. Retail Forex traders love this because they can start with smaller amounts of money. Although the risk of using greater leverage can be higher in FOREX trading, the potential for profit is there as well! During this course we will teach you  how to start generating Consistent Bullet Proof Profits in the Forex market using our FxMicroProfit™ Theory.
  • Low-cost Transactions – Compared to other markets the Forex market has some of the lowest transaction costs available, allowing traders to even profit more! There is always an opportunity to profit. FOREX trading actually consists of buying or selling one currency against another, and there is always a profit opportunity for one currency pair or another.
  • No Market Monopoly: Because of the size of the FOREX market, no single trader or bank can control the market price for any length of time. Because of the ineffectiveness of bank interventions to manipulate prices, they have diminished, unlike the stock market. With no organized exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange, trading is facilitated by electronic communication and telephones. There are no specific FOREX regulations for daily operations. Of course, banks are always regulated through banking laws, in order to protect the retail investor.
