The FX market is the most liquid market in the world, making the cost of trading lower than other asset classes. Additionally, slippage is far less likely to occur than in other markets due to the depth of the market. In normal market conditions and size in the most liquid currency pairs you should see no slippage on your trades or orders.
24 Hour Global Market
The Forex market is not traded on a central exchange or in a physical location, it is an Over the Counter (OTC) market where trading occurs through electronic systems and the telephone, 24 hours a day from Sunday evening till the close on Friday night (United Kingdom Time). This 24 hour market means that gapping is less likely and allows traders to react to political, economic, technical and fundamental factors as they happen rather than waiting for the market to open.
The growth of the internet enabled Forex to be offered to retail customers, allowing them to trade Forex in milliseconds through an online broker. This coupled with leverage has bought about huge growth in retail customers now trading Forex. It is estimated that Retail FX daily trading volumes have grown from $10 Billion in 2000 to over $200 Billion in 20124.
Forex is a margined (or leveraged) product. This means that you can trade Forex with an initial deposit that is a small percentage of the total transaction value. This means that the rate of return, the profit or loss from the initial capital outlay, is significantly higher than in traditional cash trading.
Low Transaction Cost
Most Forex brokers do not charge commission on Forex trades but make their money from the dealing spread, the difference between where a customer can buy (the offer) or sell (the bid). Due to the high liquidity and 24 hour market the spread in currency pairs is small meaning the cost of trading is low. Other trading costs are also low, the initial margin required to trade FX is small and the financing rates, the cost to borrow the notional transaction value overnight are also lower than other financial markets.
Trade Long or Short
It is easy to take a positive or negative view of how a currency will perform against another, there are no selling (shorting) restrictions on free floating currencies.
VolatilityThe exchange rate is affected by a huge variety of political, economic, technical and fundamental factors meaning that it is constantly moving and adjusting price wise. This variety makes forex trading interesting and exciting as it causes volatility, as prices can change rapidly in response to many factors creating trading opportunities.
