How does forex trading work?

Trading forex is similar to trading futures or stocks but when trading the forex market, you are buying or selling one currency against the other. One of the biggest advantages with trading forex is that you as a trader can use minimum margin to open a position with leverage applied, which can be as high as 30:1, this is different to trading shares with no leverage. Leverage allows traders to trade with more money than what they actually have in their account. In other words, if you have leverage of 30:1 you could use a £1000 deposit to control £30,000 worth of currency. Using leverage can certainly increase your gains but it can also result in increased losses if the risk is not managed. 

Market participants

Speculative traders

Investors trade currencies to gain profit. Most traders are speculative by analyzing the market and political news (fundamentals) and/or studying the chart (technicals). Unlike, other markets, in FX you can make profit from a currency losing value and also gaining value. All you have to do is trade the right direction.

Commercial traders

Large corporations trade on the FX market to control revenues and expenses incurred in various currencies through hedging where a trade or multiple trades are opened/placed in order to try and minimize on the losses in other trades and currencies.
