Forex, or foreign exchange is a global decentralized market for trading the various currencies. All the financial institutions and centers of the world help in the trade between a wide range of buyers and sellers from Monday through Friday via the forex. This foreign exchange determines the relative value of the different currencies.

The foreign exchange market assists international trade and investment, by enabling the following-

• Currency conversion- Suppose a business in India wants to import goods from the United Kingdom, then Forex will allow the business to be conducted and paid for in pound sterling, even though its income is in Indian National Rupess.

• Forex also supports direct speculation of the value of the currencies and thus aids trade based on the speculation where the profits are booked on the change in interest rates in the two currencies.

In a typical foreign exchange transaction, one party will buy a quantity of one currency by paying a quantity of the other country’s currency. The modern foreign exchange market started operating sometime in the 1970s after a long battle of three decades when there was restrictions on foreign exchange transactions. It was the Bretton Woods system of monetary management that established the rules for commercial and financial relations in the exchange rate system. It set up the rules among the world’s major industrial set ups after the Second World War. The Bretton Woods system set up the floating exchange rates which continue to be used in today’s forex.

You can get the latest information about the latest forex news on the web. There are numerous websites like pfgbestforex, forexnewstrader, forexnews etc that will help you get the latest updates on what’s going on in the stock market.

The foreign exchange market is unique because of the following factors-

• It represents the largest asset class in the world leading to high liquidity and huge trade volumes.

• Because it is geographically dispersed.

• It functions continuously keeping the world trade timings in mind except over the weekends, that is, from 20:15 GMT on Monday till 22:00 GMT on Friday

• It ensures fair trade and fair exchange rates

• Allows for the use of leverage to enhance profits and losses.

• It has a low margin of relative profit as compared to other financial institutions across the world.

Due to these factors, the Forex has often been called the closest that one can get to the concept of perfect competition in a market. It has made the world of trading simpler and quite simply enables the endless exchange and trade of goods and commerce between countries in a fair manner.
