Forex - Foreign Exchange Market

eur-usdThe foreign exchange market, also known as the forex market, allows traders to profit from currency movements in real time. The foreign exchange is an interbank market that is open 24h/day, 5 days a week.

The forex market is very liquid; nearly $6.6 trillion dollars are traded every day between various traders and financial institutions. The most traded currency pair is the euro/dollar (EUR/USD), which represents 28% of all trades.
