Two Reasons Why Many People Participate In Forex Trading
By Adrian Pablo

Forex trading is one of those great money making opportunities everyone talks about these days. People from many walks of life, men and women, decide to join the forex trading world everyday looking for the great style of life a profitable forex trader can achieve.

 

Need to know some reasons why you should join the forex trading frenzy; here are two great reasons to join:

1): Commission-free Trading and Low Transaction Cost

When you trade FOREX you can do it totally commission-free by choosing the right broker. These brokers are great because they don't charge commissions to trade or to maintain an account, and that goes for all clients trading the FOREX through them, they don’t care about your account balance or trading volume. Even Mini FX traders, who are just starting in this field, can buy and sell currencies online always commission-free.

And if you are worrying about trading fees you may have to pay your broker; good news, there are none of the usual fees to which futures and equity traders are accustomed to pay everytime; no exchange or clearing fees, no NFA or SEC fees. Because currencies trade over-the-counter (OTC), via a global electronic network in Forex, what you see is what you get, allowing you to make quick decisions on your trades without having to worry for fees that may affect your profit/loss balance.

 

 
As you may already know, in the equities markets, you must pay both a commission and an exchange fee. The over-the-counter structure of the forex market eliminates exchange and clearing fees, which is good because this in turn lowers transaction costs.

You may be asking yourself that if Forex brokers don't charge commissions, then how do they manage to make any money? Like all traded financial products, over-the-counter currency trading involves a bid/ask spread, which represents the prices at which you’re the other party is willing to trade. Thanks to the fact that the currency market is capable of offering you a round-the-clock liquidity; you will receive tight, competitive spreads both in intra-day and night trades.

2): Instantaneous Order Execution and Market Transparency.

A characteristic such as market transparency is highly desired when participating in any trading environment. The greater the market transparency, the more efficient the market becomes. Unlike other markets where transparency is compromised, FOREX markets are highly transparent.

Because of this transparency, as a forex trader, you will be able to exercise risk management strategies in accordance with your level of learning and experience. More information at http://www.1-forex.com

It is widely known that the forex market offers the highest level of market transparency out of all the financial markets available for speculation. Because of this, order execution and fill confirmation usually occur in just 1-2 seconds.

In the forex world, order execution is all-electronic and because you'll be trading via an Internet-based platform, instantaneous execution is routine. There are no exchanges, no traditional open outcry pits, no floor brokers, and consequently, no delays.

So here you have two great advantages the forex market will give you if you decide to become a forex trader.

Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts
