What is forex?Forex is Foreign exchange.It is the opportunity to trade two currencies against each other. If you think one currency will be stronger versus the other, and you end up correct, then you can make a profit. If you’ve ever traveled to another country, you usually had to find a currency exchange booth at the airport, and then exchange the money you have in your wallet into the currency of the country you are visiting.The foreign exchange market, which is usually known as “forex” or “FX,” is the largest financial market in the world. The Forex market is a global, decentralized market where the world’s currencies change hands. Exchange rates change every second so the market is constantly moving. Most of the currency transactions that occur in the global foreign exchange market are bought (and sold) for speculative reasons. Currency traders (also known as currency speculators) buy currencies hoping that they will be able to sell them at a higher price in the future.

    Technical analysis
    The theory is that a person can look at historical price movements and determine the current trading conditions and potential price movement. Someone who uses technical analysis is called a technical analyst. Traders who use technical analysis are known as technical traders. The main evidence for using technical analysis is that, theoretically, all current market information is reflected in the price. Technical traders generally subscribe to the belief that “It’s all in the charts!” you can look at past data to help you spot trends and patterns that could help you find some great trading opportunities. What’s more is that with all the traders who rely on technical analysis out there, these price patterns and indicator signals tend to become self-fulfilling. As more and more forex traders look for certain price levels and chart patterns, the more likely that these patterns will manifest themselves in the markets. You should know though that technical analysis is VERY subjective.
