There are a number of advantages Forex traders find once they
start trading for real the Forex markets. On of the main
advantages when deciding to trade for a living is that there is
no need to have a license or certification. Everything you need
to know is basically how to sell high and buy low. That's all
you need, and of course a solid understanding of how the markets
behave and the kind of indicators that can help you in your
daily battle with the forex market.
But this is not the only advantage you get when trading Forex,
compared to other ways of investment and speculation (Stocks and
Commodities). You have a whole bunch of advantages over these
other options; two of them are these:
1): The FOREX market is the largest financial market in the
It is known that this market has an approximate daily trading
volume of over $1.5 trillion, the spot Forex market can,
amazingly, absorb trading sizes that dwarf the capacity of any
other market. In fact, when compared with the approximate $50
billion daily market for equities or the $30 billion futures
market, it becomes crystal clear that this market gives
millions of other FOREX traders around the world an almost
infinite trading liquidity and flexibility.
2): FOREX is a TRUE 24-hour currency market.
The FOREX Markets never sleep and never stop having transactions
being performed every hour, every minute. Trading positions can
be entered and exited at any moment, around the world, around
the clock, six days a week. There is no waiting for an opening
bell as in the case of trading stocks in Wall Street. It is a
24-hour, continuous electronic currency exchange that never
closes (all this thanks to the internet). This characteristic of
the FX market should make it very desirable for you if you want
to trade on a part-time basis, because you can choose when you
want to trade: morning, noon or night. More information about
this can be found in other of my articles.
