6:20pm: Trading the Foreign Exchange (FX) Market
The foreign exchange market (also known as forex and FX) facilitates the conversion of one national currency into another and is the world’s largest financial market with over $4 trillion US dollars being traded every day. The FX market is a very news driven market and its influences are broader economic information like trade between countries and interest rates. Local, regional or world events can cause sudden spikes and falls to occur in seconds. Depending upon the significance of the news, and how closely it is related to a particular currency, an amazing amount of trading activity can occur in a short period of time. More and more individual traders are now speculating on forex, as various trading platforms have made this market much more accessible to the individual private trader. With trading occurring 24 hours per day during the week, the FX market offers plenty of opportunities to well prepared traders. In this session you will learn about the FX market for retail traders, the mechanics of FX trading, currency pairs and pricing.
