Foreign exchange

Foreign exchange trading refers to the exchange of one country’s currency with another currency. This is set by the exchange rate, expressed as a ratio between the present values of the two currencies.

The foreign exchange market, also known as the “Forex ” or “FX” market, is the largest financial market in the world, with an average daily trading volume of more than US $5.3 trillion. Forex markets are vastly larger than traditional stock, bond, or futures markets and the volume of transactions makes the market very difficult for an individual bank or institution to manipulate.
