What is Forex Trading?

The FX market is considered to be the most liquid market in the world. Forex is traded in currency pairs and is traded over the counter(OTC), this where trading occurs between two parties directly without the use of a central exchange.

Forex pairs can be traded on different timeframes ranging from seconds to months. Market movements occur within FX and can cause the price to fluctuate. This can be due to external factors affecting the price ofa currency, such as politics.
