What is Forex trading?
At its most basic level, forex trading is the exchange of currencies. Forex traders study the international market and exchange one currency for that of another. The goal is to read the direction a currency is headed, buy or sell the currency and hold it until it rises or drops in value (hopefully in the direction you had hoped! ), and exchange it back to make a profit on the difference. Most Forex trading is now done online, so you can trade foreign exchange at nearly any time of day or night.
Why is Forex trading becoming popular?
For many years, Forex trading was limited to banks, governments, corporations, and other major international institutions due to high entry fees. With the average trade on foreign exchange valued at about US $100,000, most independent investors could not try their hand at Forex trading. Now, a system has been put in place called “trading on the margin,” in which investors are able to trade in hypothetical amounts without putting up massive sums of money when they trade. This means that the Forex trading sphere is becoming more accessible for traders who are not affiliated with a major institution. Forex trading has also become popular with groups of people who traditionally have not been able to participate in the stock market. People who have day jobs during office hours were missing out on the opportunity to trade and invest in stocks because they were tied up with work during the strict schedule that stock exchanges operate on. In addition, Forex trading has also become popular with college students and busy parents, who also have classes or childcare during the limited hours in which they can invest in the stock market.
What is leverage? Why is it important?
As mentioned earlier, the early days of Forex trading were largely limited to major institutions because the minimum trade amount (set at $100,000) was too expensive for the average individual to put up. Trading has become easier due to a process called “trading on the margin.” When you trade on margin, you don’t actually trade with your own money; you trade through us, Target Trading, and we will basically extend our finances to cover your trades, based on the deposit you have put down in your account. This ability is called “leverage,” and is usually calculated as a ratio. The most common leverage is 100:1, meaning that for every dollar that you have in your forex account, you can trade up to 100 dollars. This means that if an investor has $1,000 in his or her account and a leverage of 100:1, he or she can trade for a minimum of $100,000 without having to save it.Target Trading provides an extremely high leverage of 1: 1000, giving you more power in your trade without breaking the bank. With more power, though, comes more responsibility and risk, so trade smart!
