Investing Beyond the Stock Market

Trading Forex: A Large and Liquid Market


An alternative to trading on the stock market is trading currencies on the Foreign Exchange Market (Forex).

Although trading currency may not be a sexy as trading stock, it certainly has its merits. Since the market is international, investors can trade at any time of the day and are not confined to the hours of Wall Street trading. Furthermore, the daily market for Forex trading is in the trillions. There are a lot of traders on the market and these traders typically only trade a few key currencies. This means that it is possible to get in and out of large trades rather easily.

Traders can use online services like FXCM to exchange currencies. It may not be for everyone, but it does represent a viable alternative to trading on Wall Street.
