What is Currency Trading?

Currency trading, commonly known as forex trading, is the buying and selling of currency pairs in the foreign exchange market to earn profits through speculation.

Presently, the currency market, or the forex market, is one of the world's largest and most liquid markets, thereby recording a daily turnover of $ 2 trillion, with quick growth projections.

The primary factor that differentiates forex trading from other types of trading is its liquidity. The purchase and sale of one currency for another to take place simultaneously. This kind of trading is also known as 'Speculative forex trading.'
