“Forex” or “FX,” (Foreign Exchange) is the trading of one currency for another. The Foreign Exchange market is the largest financial market in the world.

This is a global, decentralized market where the world’s currencies change hands. Exchange rates are constantly in flux thus they change at anytime.

Currencies are affected by political, economic, and social events, and these occurrences can affect prices either positively or negatively causing currencies to be volatile. No matter the drastic nature, price fluctuations of assets are possible. Volatility occurs when there is a difference between the opening and closing prices over a certain period.
