To trade forex successfully you need to act fast and anticipate changes in Exchange rates. Spread Co gives you the tools to do just that.
Foreign exchange trading (forex or fx trading) is the largest and most actively-traded financial market in the world, worth an estimated $4 trillion in daily turnover. Forex trading isn’t about buying or selling currencies, it’s about betting on a change in the exchange rate between two currencies – whether it will rise or fall.
When you trade forex you’re making a bet that one currency will rise or fall against another. When you ‘buy’ GBP/USD you’ll gain if sterling strengthens against the US dollar. So if the pound was worth $1.50 and this rises to $1.52 when you sell, you’ll make a profit. If it falls to $1.48 you’ll make a loss.
The size of the forex market and its liquidity is an advantage for regular traders. Getting in or out of a deal is straightforward, partly because of the 24 hour trading day, and also because there are plenty of active participants in the currency markets during these trading times.
Spread Co gives you access to these alternative markets, with competitive margins – from £80 on Spot Gold – when spread betting.
