What is Forex Trading?

Forex trading involves buying one currency and selling another simultaneously. Through careful analysis, traders predict the potential direction of currency prices and attempt to capture gains based on price fluctuations. There is no centralised exchange for forex trading. Rather, it takes place electronically or online, between networks of global computers. The market is open 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Forex Trading Example

Where the underlying asset is the AUD/USD currency pair, also known as the “Aussie.” Let us suppose that the AUD/USD pair is trading at:

You decide to buy AUD 20,000 because you think that the AUD/USD price will rise in the future. Your margin rate is 5%. This means that you need to deposit 5% of the total position value into your margin account.

Now, in the next hour, if the price moves to 0.6880/0.6882, you have a winning trade. You could close your position by selling at the current price of AUD 0.6880.

In this case, the price moved in your favour. But, had the price declined instead, moving against your prediction, you could have made a loss. If that loss was higher than AUD 687.30, your broker would have issued a margin call.

If the price
To You could Gain or Lose
for a Long Position
Resulting in a Return
of the Initial Margin
Rises by 1% 0.6942/0.6944 USD 137.46 20%
Declines by 1% 0.6804/0.6806 - USD 137.47 - 20%
