So what exactly is forex trading?

The FX markets, simply put, are where all the world’s currencies trade. 

Heralded as the world’s biggest market, as much as $6 trillion in global currencies change hands daily during peak activity, according to data from the Bank for International Settlements. 

If you’ve ever traveled abroad, you’ve made a small contribution to this market, exchanging the currency of your native country with those of the nations in which you visited or vacationed. 

However, the FX markets present opportunities for more than just travelers. Professional traders earn money by helping facilitate such trades, finding yield by buying and selling currencies.
