Forex trading means foreign exchange trading. It involves buying and selling currencies. I will explain you with a simple example.
You want to trade on the currency pair EURUSD and buy it hoping that it increases in its value. That means you are buying Euros selling USD. Lets say one EUR is 1.5000 USD. For buying 1000EUR you need to spend $1500. The currency increased in its value as you expected and it became 1.5100. That means you made a profit of 100 pips.(In forex it is measured in terms of pips). Lets say you have a standard account with a leverage of 1:100. Then this 100 pips means $1000.

I just wrote an excellent book on forex trading for beginners that you can download for free called “The Forex Lifestyle”. It has everything from how the BUY and SELL trades work, to charting, learning about pips and some of the math involved, how to find good brokers and auto-trading robots. It also has trading log sheets in the back that you can print out and use to keep track of your trades as you’re learning for future reference. Take a look.
Forex (Foreign Exchange) is an international market, where money is sold and bought freely.
Believe it or not, money masses in the market constitute from 1 to 1.5 trillion US dollars a day.
Forex Trading has a learning curve – no doubt about it, but once you get the hang of it, it can be very rewarding…
