Forex trading is for those who enjoy speculation and the potential for huge returns.  The foreign exchange currency market is the largest financial market around — trading daily amounts between 3.2-4 trillion USD. These figures are 35 times larger than those of the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) and even 4 times larger than the world GDP!

Forex is also the most liquid market in the world, since it is entirely cash, and this makes it easy to trade most currencies. Forex deals are commision free, unlike trading futures or equities. While major financial institutions still dominate the trading landscape, individuals like yourself are now able to compete in this global cash market.
