B. Introduction to Forex Trading

Nicholas · June 26, 2020

Have you heard about forex but still don’t understand what it’s all about? – You’re not alone!

Many beginners find forex trading intimidating due to its perceived complexity. As a result, many never take the final step to truly start trading and only leave it as a wish on their list. This course aims to demystify forex trading, breaking it down into understandable concepts and practical knowledge, enabling you to take the first step towards becoming a forex trader.

What exactly is Forex?

When we take away all the noise, the short answer is: “Forex is simply a global market that allows anyone to trade between two currencies against each other at any point in time.” The word “Forex” is a combination of two words merged as one. When we split this, we get “FOR” representing Foreign and “EX” representing Exchange.

This tells us that in forex, we are always carrying out activities that involve the exchange between two or more foreign currencies.

For instance, when trading EUR/USD, you are speculating on the value of the Euro against the US Dollar. If you believe the Euro will appreciate against the Dollar, you would buy EUR/USD. Conversely, if you expect the Dollar to strengthen, you would sell EUR/USD​.
