Managed Forex accounts are a boon for those who don't have the time to devote to the foreign exchange dealing. It's also for those who don't have the expertise to deal in the foreign exchange markets. Professionals are there for managing Forex accounts. Management of these Forex accounts is a very serious and a competitive business. Many investors like to allocate a portion their funds to Forex accounts managed professionally. It helps them to diversify their risks and also mitigate any losses that may arise from other portfolios such as stock and bond market. Since Forex transactions is a ball game separate from that of the stock markets, their profits and losses are also separate.
Therefore these currency-trading accounts can enhance one's portfolios in a great way. The FX trading accounts that are managed professionally must be able to provide the following, irrespective of which Forex trading manager or account that you choose.
A currency trading account is not tied to the stock market operations. The Forex managed account should be able to provide a better return than the treasury bonds and other such money market instruments.
Professional expertise is a must. The firm should have good standing in the market and have professionals who have experience in dealing in foreign exchange accounts. Most foreign banks and transnational firms employ the best and have constantly out performed others.

Depending on the firms that one chooses, there are various kinds of currency trading accounts that one can invest under. They may be called by several names such as global Forex accounts, aggressive Forex accounts, and high value Forex accounts, etc.
For example the global Forex accounts might deal in many foreign currencies, many of which may not be the liquid currencies such as the Russian ruble or the Indian rupee. Other accounts such as the aggressive Forex accounts may deal in the most liquid of the accounts such as the US dollar, Japanese yen, euro, British pound, Swiss franc, Canadian dollar, and Australian dollar.
The Forex trading accounts also differ on another account, that of the initial investment that is required. Some Forex trading accounts may need an initial investment of $10,000, others $50,000, still others might require an initial investment of $100,000.
