What is FX?

FX is the shortened term used for ‘Foreign Exchange’, the buying and selling currencies. The foreign exchange market is the biggest and most liquid financial market in the world, and operates 24/5. Almost every financial service deal across the global includes an FX transaction. On the exchange market you can trade the most popular FX pairs such as the euro/dollar, or opt for a more specialist currency. Trading reacts to both fundamentals (market news) and technical (trends), making this a dynamic asset class.
