About foreign exchange trading
Foreign Exchange (FX) is the simultaneous buying of one currency and selling of another currency.
When one currency increases in value, it strengthens against the other currency, decreasing the other currency’s value. Our Next Generation platform allows you to trade on changes in the relative prices of hundreds of global currencies.
Unlike other financial markets, the FX market has no physical location and no central exchange. It operates through a global network of banks, corporations and individuals trading one currency for another.
The FX market is the world’s largest financial market, trading 24 hours a day, with enormous amounts of money being traded on a daily basis. Investors can respond to currency fluctuations caused by economic, political and social events at the time they occur with FX (either via spread betting or CFD trading), without having to wait for the markets to open.
