Hey guys, I thought I would write an article for you guys on the basics of Forex trading. My name is Will and I am a Forex trading enthusiast who is currently testing out Forex Phantom a product that is said to be this years best selling Forex Product.

The forex market is the largest in the world and provides a great opportunity to make money. Whilst it may seem overwhelming, the basics are in fact very easy to understand, which is why so many people are getting into forex and beginning to make large profits.

Forex literally means foreign exchange, where individuals attempt to make money by buying and selling foreign currency in pairs as the exchange rates shift. In many ways the forex market is similar to other markets, though it is the largest by far. This is due to the fact that everyone across the world contributes to this market – all of the banks, companies, institutions and investors. This means there are stable spreads during the working week.

When you choose to get started in forex trading you will find that it is extremely convenient. There is no specific centre to the forex market, and most people who have an internet connection can get started in forex trading at any time of the day. The trading is open 24 hours a day, unlike other markets, and is open Monday to Friday. Trading days start in Wellington and move around the countries, to New Zealand, Sydney, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Middle East, London, Europe and New York. This means there is no limit as to when you can trade.

The forex trading market closes on weekends like most other markets. However, the flexibility and volume of the forex market makes it extremely attractive in terms of new traders. Just make sure that you take your time to understand the ins and outs of the market before risking any of your money – it is easy to do when you start looking online. Good luck!
