The Advantages of Trading Forex

Why Trade Forex

Just why is the forex market the fastest growing market in the world?

Here we list just a few of the reasons why millions of traders choose forex as their preferred investment choice.
The forex market is a true twenty-four-hour market, open across all global trading sessions, including Sydney, Tokyo, London and New York. Traders are not bound by the restrictive opening and closing hours of the traditional stock markets.
Trading with leverage allows traders to access financial markets with relatively small investment amounts. AltumFx offers leverage of up to 1:500, meaning a relatively small investment of $500 can control up to $250,000!
Forex transaction costs (spreads) are typically less than a tenth of the fees involved with some exchange based markets.
Forex is one of the most accessible markets in the world. With a simple and fast account opening process, traders can enjoy low cost trading, 24 hours a day, either at home or work, or on the go in just a matter of minutes.
Due to the tremendous size of the forex market and the huge volume of participants there is no single institution that can control market prices for an extended period of time. This results in more transparent and fair pricing compared with other markets, which may be more open to manipulation.
The sheer volume of transactions taking place every second of every day makes the forex market the most liquid market in the world. There is always a buyer for every seller, meaning transactions can be completed easily and at low costs.
The volatility of the forex market presents traders with almost limitless trading opportunities each day. Trading during volatile markets, such as scheduled news announcements, although not for the feint-hearted, can return large profits (as well as losses).
Since CFDs involve price speculation only, traders can open short (sell) positions at anytime, without having to own the physical currency first. This means they can trade and profit from falling exchange rates just as easily as rising ones.
