Forex Currency Trading and Currency Market Trading are the exact same thing, and so also are the terms 4x trading, fx currency trading, fx exchange 4x currency trading etc all referring to the exact same thing. Which makes sense really in that no one will exchange Euro for Euro except to change denominations at a bank for a retail shop’s need for change. The emphasis is all on international currencies being exchanged.
Many people do get confused about the names. This comes from the fact that many people know so little about forex currency trading, and so the general confusions they have about currency market trading extends to all the different names for it. People know about the Internet, and with that came the stock market’s day traders dealing in shares, options and warrants. And all brokers had to deal with the Internet allowing them to be bypassed as software enabled people to place buy and sell orders direct.
There has always been forex currency trading, but prior to the Internet it was the exclusive domain of Governments, large banks and brokerage firms. Currency market trading then was opened up to the micro and mini forex day traders because of the widespread use of broadband internet and smart, fast and reliable software. It is interesting that most investors really only discovered stock markets when the Internet opened up all the markets equally.
The irony is that Currency market trading, even though much less well known than the stock market, is massively bigger than the stock market. In fact, the World’s forex currency trading turns over more money in 1 week than the entire USA economy does in one whole year.
And it is not just the size of the total currency market trading that takes place that is impressive; it is more that it is so huge that it is beyond the ability of any Government to control it fully. There is no central regulation of currency market trading. Sure the USA Government can make laws for brokers and traders in the USA, but when bad laws are passed people simply trade from an International broker – often just an overseas branch of their existing USA broker.
Forex currency trading is so huge that big business and the criminal element cannot manipulate it as they often and easily do with the stock market. There are no corporate raiders or takeovers in forex, no corporate lawyers leading stock market proxy fights. Currency market trading is simply the constant process of matching one currencies value against another currency in real time.
5 billion Euros is a lot of money. Let’s assume a very large player or even Government steps in to the forex currency trading market and lends support to the Euro. Unless the USA at the same time announce some poor economic data at the same time, that 5 billion Euro would have little or no effect when you consider that 2,500 billion Euros are traded on every normal day. Currency market trading is honest because it is too big to fool the free market’s operation.
Having said all of this about the openness and transparency of forex currency trading, currency market trading does lend itself to the use of intelligent 4x trading software and the use of proven fx trading strategies. Money management is paramount, and effective strategies are necessary to protect your capital.
