Forex or Forex exchange market is a huge network of buyers and sellers, who transfer currency among each other at prices that are constantly changing. The amount of currency converted every day is enormous. The global FX market daily turnover hits $6.6t in 2020. These money flows make price movements of some currencies extremely volatile. Traders get profit from these market fluctuations, buying assets at cheaper prices and selling when they are more expensive.

However, now you don’t need to take ownership of these assets. Instead of that, you can just speculate on the exchange rate or use CFDs that stands for Contracts For Difference. The difference between Forex and CFDs is that Forex trading includes only currency pairs, while CFD trading can also involve indices, metals and energy. You just need to predict where the price will go. Take a buy position, and if prices go up, you’ll get profit. Otherwise, take a sell position, and if prices go down, you’ll gain.
