This course will teach you everything you need to know about the Forex market, it’s history, how it works and how you can trade in it. Through easy to follow step by step instructions students will learn how to trade Forex successfully.

What is Forex Trading
It’s all about buying and selling currencies. Both forex and ‘FX’ are shortened terms used for ‘Foreign Exchange’, which itself is a term used to describe the exchange of money or currency from different countries. People who trade forex make money through buying and selling currencies on the foreign exchange market. Many traders make a living or gain a secondary income out of trading currencies, however it’s important to note that firstly international currency prices are highly volatile and very difficult to predict, and secondly that when trading forex you can very easily lose all of your money.
