Currencies

What are Currencies?

Foreign exchange, also known as Forex or currency pairs, refers to the conversion of one currency into another. It encompasses the decentralized global currency market where all currencies are traded. The Forex market is massive, with daily trading volumes reaching nearly 5.5 trillion dollars. It is a highly volatile market where currencies can gain or lose value within seconds.

National currencies are highly responsive to financial events, political decisions, economic factors, and other news events. Currency values can fluctuate dramatically, presenting significant opportunities for Forex traders.

Similar to stocks, you can trade currencies based on your assessment of their value or the direction you believe they will move. If you anticipate a currency’s value will increase, you can buy it, and if you expect it to decrease, you can sell it. With such a large market and high trading volume, finding buyers and sellers is relatively easier compared to other markets.

The Forex market operates 24/5 and includes a wide range of currency pairs. 4xAi Forex traders can open leveraged positions on the relative performance of various currency pairs. It’s important to note that you do not physically buy or own any currencies. Instead, you are speculating on the difference between the opening and closing prices of your position.

What influences exchange rate fluctuations?

The value of a national currency depends on the economic health of the issuing country and certain decisions made by its central bank and government. These countries actively participate in Forex trading to control the supply of their currency in the economy.

If the supply of a currency does not increase proportionally with demand, its price will rise. Conversely, negative news or events can decrease an investment and subsequently lower the currency’s price.

These decisions and events create frequent trading opportunities. While the Forex market is primarily dominated by major institutional investors and funds, 4xAi traders can also benefit from this highly volatile market by trading Forex on our award-winning platform.

Currencies

For example:

  • The current SELL rate for the British pound against the US dollar (GBP/USD) is 1.24197, while the BUY rate is 1.24242. Based on your technical and fundamental analysis, you anticipate the GBP to strengthen against the USD. Therefore, you decide to open a BUY position with a value of $5,000. Multiplying 5,000 by the BUY rate of 1.24242 gives you $6,212.1.

    Since the contract is leveraged at a ratio of x50, you calculate the initial margin required by dividing $6,212.1 by 50, resulting in $124.24. This is the minimum amount needed to open the position.

    As predicted, the GBP/USD exchange rate rises to 1.29541. Believing this marks the peak of the GBP’s uptrend, you decide to close the position. The difference between the closing price (1.29541) and the opening price (1.24242) is 0.05299. Multiplying this difference by the trade size of 5,000 gives you $264.95.

    In the end, your profit from the trade is $264.95. It’s important to note that in this Forex trade, you did not physically purchase any pounds or dollars. Instead, you were speculating on the difference between the opening and closing prices of the position.
