In many ways forex is the king of modern markets, dwarfing all others with its unrivalled daily turnover and liquidity. Forex trades 24 hours per day, five days a week and is one of the most vibrant and potentially lucrative markets available to traders. At LCG we offer over 60 forex pairs with razor thin spreads and lightning fast execution. It's important to remember when looking at forex that a higher currency makes a country's exports more expensive for other countries, while making imports cheaper. A lower currency makes exports cheaper and imports more expensive, so foreign exchange rates play a significant part in determining the trading relationship between two countries. There are a variety of factors at play in this relationship and they all contribute in some way to whether the strength of a currency declines or improves in relation to another. Understanding the influencing factors gives traders insights they can incorporate into their forex trading strategies.
It all boils down to the traders own philosophy. Either you are willing to accept the greater risk for greater gains, or you are not. If not, stick with the EUR/USD.

I started trading on Forex in summer 2011. InstaForex Company was my first broker to guide me in the currency market. I was very pleased with the�attitude�of its�staff and their in-depth answers to all my questions. What is more, I was nicely surprised by the immediate execution of orders, withdrawals and deposits. InstaForex Company also provides an opportunity to take part in webinars on any topic you're interested in. While communicating with other traders and discussing different questions, I can develop my trading skills and keep in touch with people with the same interests.
