Forex

Foreign exchange is the largest financial market in the world, where transactions worth trillions of dollars take place every day traded by a global network of banks, dealers and brokers. Due to the fact that forex currency trading has no centralised marketplace, currencies can be traded in whatever market is open at any given time, creating a great opportunity for traders to buy and sell currencies around the clock 24 hours a day, 5 days a week with the exception of weekends.

If you are new to currency trading, a great way to get started is to open a free Demo Account. This practice account offers access to all the advanced features to assist new traders in understanding how the forex market works and to provide them with the chance to perfect their trading strategy.
