Description - Foreign Exchange Market (FOREX)

The Foreign Exchange (FOREX) market is by far the largest market in the World.

The 1.5 trillion dollars average daily turnover dwarfs the daily turnover in all the World's stock and bond markets combined.

The New York Stock Exchange has a daily trading volume of approximately USD 30 billion. One trillion dollars (USD 1,000,000,000,000) changes of hands every day in the global Foreign Exchange Markets.

80% of this trading is speculative, buying and selling money for profit's sake.

Investing in foreign exchange remains mainly a domain for the big professional players in the market such as the hedge funds, banks, and brokers.

The currency exchange market is a true 24-hour market, five days a week. There are dealers in every major time zone.

The largest dealing centres are London (50% of the market), followed by New York, Tokyo, Zurich, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore, Paris, and Sydney.
