Slide 1: A Brief Guide To Understanding Foreign Exchange Markets Every day, the world's many currencies are traded in Foreign Exchange Markets, sometimes referred to as "Forex" or "FX" Markets. The largest and most liquid of all financial markets, the amount of volume in trading on FX Markets daily is staggering - close to $4 trillion dollars U.S., one-third of which takes place in London. Anyone who has ever changed money in a foreign country has gotten a taste of this system on its most basic level. Over the course of an extended visit in a foreign country, a traveler is sure to notice the rises and falls in the exchange rate. To take a closer look at FX Markets in action, it is useful to peruse the financial section of any newspaper. Where the currencies are listed, readers will notice a "bid" price listed along with an "ask" price. Since banks set the "ask" price, it will be slightly marked up in order to accommodate a transaction fee. If a person wished to sell the same currency, they would be offered the "bid" price by the bank, which is lower. The spread between these figures is one of the methods used by large banks to profit in Forex trading, which is a volume-dominated market. Many different strategies are available to investors in the Forex Markets. While it is obvious that some currencies are devaluating or growing stronger in broader trends, the different fluctuations over a short period of time can be highly profitable for investors. At the same time, a long-term strategy may be a winning technique. The Forex markets are not typically explored by the common investor. One of the reasons is the bid/ask spread which is set by the largest banks in the world. Unlike most areas of investment, the upper echelon banks can secure a rate of exchange on currencies not available to any other players in the market. In fact, the overwhelming majority of the world's currency transactions (nearly 4 out of 5) are handled by the top 10 banks in the market, giants like Deutsche Bank and Barclay's. The Forex Markets are always a breeding ground for speculation. The aggressive investment style of hedge fund managers has been particularly useful in the currency exchange trading. Since the financial officers of governments have the ability to use Central Bank funds to slow down a currency's devaluation, it can prove difficult to see a trend complete its cycle. By overwhelming the market with capital, hedge fund investors have been able to overcome these effects. The reasons why a country's currency may become stronger or weaker are numerous. National budget deficits can contribute, as well as the ability of a government of handle a budget surplus. Overall GDP growth is always important, as well as political developments. An interesting feature of the FX is the fact that they never close between Monday and Friday. After the close of business in New York, traders can continue on in Europe and finally Asia before New York markets open
