Forex trading, otherwise known as currency or FX trading, involves trading currencies and speculating on the currency price fluctuations over a given period of time. Traders buy or sell one currency against another. As a trader, you will gain from the changes in exchange rates between a currency pair. You speculate whether the value of a currency, for example the Euro, will rise or fall in relation to another currency like the US dollar.
