FOREX TRADING

FOREX (or FX) stands for “foreign exchange market”. It relies on buying one currency and selling another. It used to be a tool available only for institutions, corporations, hedge funds, central banks, and the rich. Now, it is open to anyone with a computer, smartphone and a connection to the world wide web.

What do you get from currency trading?

•This is the market where most of the global trading takes place. It has a humongous volume – $4.8 trillion (January 2015 estimates)

•Currency trading is extremely fast

•Currency trading with Forex has additional benefits, as there are opportunities to trade both when prices increase and when they decrease

Forex is considered the most popular online trading approach. In GCC Exchange you can trade more than sixty currency pairs, using the MT5 platform, adapted to your needs.

•Major currency trading pairs are those with highest liquidity – for example EUR/USD and JPY/USD.

•Minor currency trading pairs (called “crosses” are those like the JPY/EUR and the GBP/EUR. They do not include US dollars.

•Finally, there are the exotic currency pairs – for example NOK/USD – they combine a major currency with one of a developing country.

When you FX trade, you purchase the difference between two currencies. This difference is known as “spread”.

Most currencies are not volatile on a daily basis – most move <1% in one day. Hence FX trading is one of the least volatile trading options in the world.

At GCC Exchange we pride ourselves in offering “quick and reliable trading”. All transactions through us are automatic and your trades are executed instantly.

There are no rejections, except when upper/lower bounds have been introduced against volatility.

We employ no software or dealing desks – we will not push any trades to the favour of the broker.
