The Forex market is where dreams are made or broken; it is the place where traders battle against each other by buying and selling currencies with the intention of making a profit.

The currency market offers any person the opportunity to make money no matter if you a big corporate or just an ordinary individual like you and me.

So why is it better to trade Forex as appose to CFDs, futures, oil, gold, stocks, etc?

1. Small minimum deposit, most brokers allow you to deposit as little as $25 to open a new account.

2. The Forex market is always awake, as it is a global market stretched over many time zones the Forex market stays open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. This allows you to trade when ever you like.

3. The money is liquid, as you trading currency you don’t need to wait until you can cash out, like with stocks where you have to wait for the stocks to convert to cash before you can cash them in.

4. The size of the Forex market is massive; it is 30 times larger than the United States equities market, so the market is almost 100% liquid. This markets it very desirable to invest in.

5. The market always has direction, If one currency is going up, then the other is going down. This is a desirable feature that there is often a predictable trend.

6. Commissions, exchange fees or hidden charges may be the least of your worries, Fx brokers only make a profit on the spread, i.e. the difference in the buy and sell price of the currency and most reputable brokers are highly regulated.

7. Profits can be made even if the currency starts to fall, this is called a “sell” trade and you can make substantial gains in selling currency if you have proper signals.

8. The transparency on the Forex market is very important. Unlike equity markets, where analysts possibly could have an unfair advantage over the “man on the street” because of certain insider knowledge they may have. Currency markets are very efficient with news feeds and most traders know what is going on at any given stage.

9. The speed of the Fx market is impressive! It takes little under a second to complete a transaction, and it is all done online.

10. You may be asking yourself by now, what education level do I need to start trading Forex? The good news you do not need any form of formal education, degree or qualification to qualify to trade. All you need is the know-how of how it functions, devise smart trading strategies and great techniques and you can be on your way to earning large sums of money trading Forex.
