What is FX Trading?
Forex trading (FX) refers to trading in one currency against another to make a profit.
What is CFDs Trading?
CFD trading is a form of derivatives trading – meaning you trade on prices derived from the underlying market, not on the underlying market itself. When you buy or sell a CFD you are agreeing to exchange the difference in price of an asset from the point at which your position is opened to when it is closed.

What is exchange rate
For a currency pair, the exchange rate is the amount of the specified currency that you can buy for 1 unit of the base currency. For example, when looking at the exchange rate for EURGBP, you want to find out how many GB Pound (the specified currency) you can buy for 1 euro (the base currency). If the exchange rate of the EURGBP currency pair is 0.972, it means that for every 1 euro you can buy 0.972 pounds.
Changes in the exchange rate
Depending on if the specified currency or the base currency is strengthened against the other the exchange rate will change. If the exchange rate goes down, it means that the specified currency is strengthened compared to the base currency.
If the exchange rate rises, it means that the base currency is strengthened compared to the specified currency.
What is affecting the FX market
There are many factors that will affect the exchange rates in the FX Market, such as political and economic stability together with economic policies in different countries. But what mainly affects the exchange rate is speculations, this since currency transactions are immediate.
If traders speculate that a currency will strengthen or weaken due to a specific reason or event, they will trade and change the price of the market, as supply and demand for the currency will change within the market. The more people who think that a certain trend will happen, the greater the effect it will have on market prices.
What do I do when trading on the FX market?
When trading on the FX market, you trade a currency pair, ie. you sell or buy one currency against another. For example, if you speculate that the Euro (EUR) will strengthen against the US dollar, you should buy the currency pair EURUSD. If you instead speculate that the US dollar will be the stronger one, you sell the currency pair.
In FX trading you can trade long or short, which means that you can always take a position in the direction you assume the market is moving. This increases your trading opportunities.
