Forex is short for Foreign Exchange and refers to a decentralized market that spans the globe and is considered the most liquid worldwide. Exchange rates fluctuate continuously due to ever changing market forces of supply and demand. Forex traders buy a currency pair if they think the exchange rate will rise and sell it if they think the opposite will happen. Unlike the Stock market, the Forex market never sleeps and remains open around the world for 24 hours per day and 5 days a week. Under Australian regulation, before you can start trading forex you first need to complete a short suitability test. You can take the test after completing your registration or anytime later before you start trading. You ?will be charged the respective USD per USD million traded commission fee? that is calculated and transparent on each trade. The fee can be seen in the Trade Ticket Confirmation and also in the Open Positions monitor.
The main trading centers are London and New York City, though Tokyo , Hong Kong and Singapore are all important centers as well. Banks throughout the world participate. Currency trading happens continuously throughout the day; as the Asian trading session ends, the European session begins, followed by the North American session and then back to the Asian session.
Because Secure had no real headquarters and existed on the Internet only, an investigation would be challenging. Regulators now know that light-touch regulation was an invitation to the financial services industry to game the rules and they have responded with more intrusive supervision and hefty deterrents.
Unfortnaley my account transfered over from FXCM today. Sad to say this app in comparison to FXCM is a joke. You should have transfered your clients to their platform. I will be pulling my money out and taking my business else where. Your app needs to be scraped. I truly can't believe how you have even kept customers with this hunk of garbage. Maybe I was just privileged with FXCM but I'm sad to see them go.
Some of the richest people in the world have Forex as a large part of their investment portfolio. Warren Buffet, the world's richest man, has over $20 Billion invested in various currencies on the Forex market. His revenue portfolio usually includes well over one-hundred million dollars in profit from Forex trades each quartile. George Soros is another big name in the field of currency trading - it is believed that he made over $1 billion in profit from a single day of trading in 1992! Although those types of trades are very rare, he was still able to amass over $7 Billion from three decades of trading on the Forex market. The strategy of George Soros also goes to show that you don't have to be too risky to make profits on Forex - his conservative strategy involves withdrawing large portions of his profits from the market, even when the trend of his various investments seems to still be correlating upward.
