What is currency trading?
            Currency Trading in foreign exchange is the simultaneous buying of one currency and selling of another currency. Daily volume in the  currency market exceeds $1.5 trillion  per  day, making it the largest and most liquid market in the world. Unlike  other  financial markets, the Forex market has no physical location or central   exchange. It is an over-the-counter market where buyers and sellers including   banks, corporations, and private investors conduct business. Foreign exchange   trading takes place in financial trading centers all over the world, including   New York, London, and Tokyo creating one cohesive, international market. The   huge number and diversity of players involved make it difficult for even   governments to control the direction of the market. The unmatched liquidity and   around-the-clock global activity make foreign exchange the ideal market for  active traders.
                    The foreign exchange market has experienced  many changes since its inception. Today, supply and  demand for a particular currency, or its relative value, is the driving factor  in determining exchange rates. Decreasing obstacles and increasing  opportunities, such as the fall of communism and the dramatic growth of the  Asian and Latin American economies have created new opportunities for  investors.
                   Traditionally  the foreign exchange market was  only available to larger entities trading currencies for commercial and  investment purposes through banks. Now trading  platforms,  such as the our  Trading Station, allow smaller financial  institutions and retail investors access to a similar level of liquidity as the  major foreign exchange banks, by  offering a  gateway to the primary (Inter bank)  market.
                    Increasing trade  and foreign investment have made the economies of all nations more and more  interrelated. Regularly reported economic figures around the world, such as  inflation or unemployment levels, as well as unexpected news, such as natural  disasters or political instability, alters the desirability of holding a  particular currency, thus influencing international supply and demand for that  currency. The U.S. Dollar, therefore, fluctuates constantly against the  currencies of the rest of the world. The current web of international trade and  the  resultant fluctuations in exchange rates have created the world's largest  market the foreign exchange market, a market whose vast size  makes it the most efficient, fairest, and liquid of all markets.
                    The foreign  exchange market is a cash inter bank or inter dealer market. The market is both highly differentiated from, yet intrinsically linked to, the currency futures  market. Foreign exchange, however, is not a "market" in the traditional sense  since there is no centralized location for trading activity. Trading occurs over  the telephone and through computer
terminals at thousands of locations  worldwide. The direct inter bank market consists of dealers with currency  settlement capabilities trading as principals. It is this dealer segment of the  market that is responsible for generating a large portion of the overall foreign  exchange volumes. Trading between dealers creates the largest turnover in the  market, making foreign exchange the most liquid of all markets. 
                    Trading  approximately $ 4 trillion every day, the foreign exchange market is the  largest  financial market in the world. Traditionally, the foreign exchange  market has only been available to banks, money managers, and large financial  institutions. Over the years, these  institutions, including the U.S. Federal  Reserve Bank, have realized large gains via currency trading. This growing  market is now linked to a worldwide network of currency traders,including  banks, central banks, brokers, and customers, such as importers and exporters. 
                    Today, the foreign exchange market offers opportunities for profit not only to  banks and  institutions, but to individual investors as well.
