Advantages and characteristics of trading Foreign Exchange

Forex trading offers distinctive benefits when compared to trading stocks or commodities. Forex is the largest financial market in the world, with the most voluminous trading liquidity and flexibility of all financial markets. This means that the market has a great capacity to absorb large and high frequency trades from the millions of worldwide forex traders.

Forex is a true 24-hour market, around the globe and around the clock. Many non professional traders prefer to speculate outside of traditional working hours. No matter where you are or what currency pairs you are interested in, you don't have to wait for the opening bell.

Another benefit is that it is easy to understand what you are trading. Currencies are in a sense more transparent than corporations. A country's policies are out in the open and on the news all the time.

Because of its sheer size it has to be an all-electronic execution market. Order executions and fill confirmations occur in seconds (sometimes quicker). There are no open-outcry pits, no brokers on the floor and no delays.
