As the most liquid market in the world Forex trading has become the most traded of all markets, with its features arguably a catalyst of its popularity. With Forex spreads remaining tight throughout the day traders are provided with an easy-to-use trading format in which they can have complete control.
With an average turnover in excess of US$5.3 trillion per day Forex trading is utilised by governments, central banks, financial institutions, corporations and professional and retail traders, making it the largest financial market in the world.
One feature that many of our traders here at Spread Betting enjoy about Forex trading it the access, permitted to trader currency around the clock. Many of our providers match the underlying market, meaning it is available to trade 24-hours a day, from Sunday evening GMT to Friday night GMT.
The value of currency is constantly fluctuating, directly influenced by economic and political events. Due to this Forex trading gives way to many opportunities to make big profit. However, volatility is what many call a 'double edged sword', with both wins and losses accumulating quickly.
At Spread Betting our Forex partners offer leveraged products, meaning traders can gain a great deal of market exposure from just a small wager, magnifying potential successes.
City Index, one of our largest Forex providers explains:
'At City Index, we offer some of the most competitive margin rates in the retail forex industry and our ‘Leverage to Suit’ model enables you to select your preferred leverage ratios to suit your specific trading strategy and style.
It is important to remember however that leveraged forex trading involves greater risk of loss and may not be suitable for everyone. You can lose more than your initial deposit if the market moves against you. We offer a wide range of trading tools to help you manage your trading risk'
While most popular for those looking to trade the GBP, US Dollar and the Euro, we can give you access to over 37 different currency markets, including majors, minors and exotic pairs.
If you are interested in becoming a Forex trader or are a seasoned professional, register with any of our partners providers and enjoy trading with your free welcome bonus.
