Many of the trades which take place on the Forex market occur between large banks, central banks, multinational corporations, Governments, currency speculators as well as all other types of financial institutions and markets.

Currently, the trades occurring in Forex markets across the globe is well more than $3-4trillion each day on average. However, the individual or retail traders make up only a small part of this market, and they often trade through a third party such as a Forex broker or a bank. This means the market mostly includes sophisticated traders who know what they are doing.

Forex Market Risks

In fact, when some individual investors begin trading in the Forex market it can all seem a bit daunting. The learning curve can be steep if you cannot master the fundamentals, and you can easily lose more money than you can afford if you are not careful. However, some people can learn fast and they can master the basics of the market quickly.

If you are not one of the fast learners, you may have beginners luck and your first few trades can make you money. But you should not depend on luck to survive for more than your first few trades. You need a solid foundation to recoup your capital and make a decent income from your trades.

There are many financial instruments which you can use for trading on the currency market. These include forwards and futures, options and spread betting. All of which are similar to those used in equity markets. However, as these instruments maintain a minimum trade size to the base currencies, a margin is included with each trading account.

Volatility is the essence of the currency market. Values for individual currencies rise and fall with news and information happening around the world. Sometimes the fall in a currency can be swift and can help to wipe out your entire account before you can react. So you must prepare for risks if you decide to trade on the Forex market.

The market can change suddenly all because of decisions made by some government or corporation in a distant part of the world. A terrorist attack such as that which occurred on 9/11 did not only affect the Forex market in the US but the world over.

Therefore, if you want to become a successful investor in the Forex market, you must learn the fundamentals about the market and the currencies you wish to trade. Also, read press releases and other financial and political news from around the world. You will do do well by learning how to read graphs and charts about these individual currencies, Finally, sign up for a demo account with a broker and learn how to trade without using real money.
