Forex (FX) is the market in which currencies are traded. The forex market is the largest, most liquid market in the world, with average traded values that can be trillions of dollars per day. It includes all of the currencies in the world. The world then decided to have fixed exchange rates that resulted in the U.S. dollar being the primary reserve currency and that it would be the only currency backed by gold, this is known as the �Bretton Woods System' and it happened in 1944 (I know you super excited to know that). In 1971 the U.S. declared that it would no longer exchange gold for U.S. dollars that were held in foreign reserves, this marked the end of the Bretton Woods System.
By making our world a smaller and more global place, this automatically means that people, goods and services can travel faster and more easily. This also means that a necessity of currencies to be traded against each other is needed in order for this to happen. All these factors have determined a growing forex trading marketplace, which will only continue to grow and become more dynamic, liquid and responsive.
Another somewhat unique characteristic of the FOREX money market is the variance of its participants. Investors find a number of reasons for entering the market, some as longer term hedge investors, while others utilize massive credit lines to seek large short term gains. Interestingly, unlike blue-chip stocks, which are usually most attractive only to the long term investor, the combination of rather constant but small daily fluctuations in currency prices, create an environment which attracts investors with a broad range of strategies.

I have been trading with InstaForex for 18 months. The broker knocked me down by the speed of orders' execution, i.e. by the lack of slippages. Of course, there occur negligible lags, but only on the crazy market. The funds are deposited and withdrawn very fast; all questions are solved instantly as well. Moreover, I would love to mention that education in InstaForex taught me much and I liked the tutor Vitamir, who is the partner of the company. His courses helped me to learn the secrets of trading, and InstaForex Company allowed to apply the received knowledge in practice. I love to take part in the campaigns held by the company. The fact that they are carried out professionally and transparently is the example of qualitative and honest contests' arrangements.
