Why Trade the FOREX Market Instead of Other Markets?

The FOREX, or Foreign Currency Exchange Market - is the largest financial market in the world, 20 times the size of all the equities markets combined or more.

In FOREX you only have to choose between 7 of the major currencies in the world; these currencies account for 85% of the three trillion plus dollars traded in the FOREX market daily.

You can trade the FOREX market from any place in the world where you have an internet connection, 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.

The FOREX market has been around for 30+ years and was the first fully electronic market in the world, thus it is very transparent.

In 1997 there was about 150,000 DAY traders in the world trading on the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange). Today there are 45 million DAY traders trading (NYSE), Options, Futures and other equities markets. There are only about 500,000 traders in the world trading the FOREX, the majority of these are banks, hedge funds and corporations; less than 250,000 individuals trade the FOREX.

In our opinion, the chance that it will take 11 years for the FOREX market to have as many traders as in the Equities markets is unlikely, because currency is more liquid.

Seven major currencies in FOREX versus 45,000 stocks in the NYSE. Less than 500,000 traders in FOREX versus 7,000,000 traders in the NYSE. Our Preferred Broker will make best efforts to fill your trade at the price requested.

There is more money traded in FOREX than in all other markets put together.
Less cost in commissions & fees trading FOREX than in other markets.
Buy or sell in FOREX; it makes no difference; not so in the NYSE.
FOREX market can be traded 24 hours a day opposed to other markets.
FOREX has superior transparency (you can tell what others are doing).
NYSE has behind closed doors deals; less transparent in other markets.

FOREX brokerage houses allow you to open a $500. account; not so in the NYSE and other markets (usually a $10,000 account is required).

FOREX provides higher leverage of your money than any other financial market (e.g. 200:1 vs. 1:1 in the NYSE or 10:1 in other markets). Keep in mind that leverage is a double-edged sword, and can dramatically amplify your losses as well as your profits. We believe that the NYSE is highly manipulated; you have little control; it can be HIGH risk. *

The FOREX has practically no manipulation; you have more control; with proper education on Forex trading and implementing risk management one could effectively learn to take profit from this market.

We view the FOREX as recession proof because it has 4 trillion $ a day moving around the world through the banking network. In our opinion, the FOREX will not crash, disappear or “have a bad year”.

“While options and futures still trade in record numbers, FOREX trading - the trading of international currencies - is undoubtedly the fastest growing market segment in the last year." --- Active Trader Magazine, October 2004. Now, seven years later, this fact is even more the case. *
