Forex & Currency Trading.

What is Forex?
"Forex" stands for foreign exchange; it's also known as FX. In a forex trade, you buy one currency while
simultaneously selling another.
Currencies trade in pairs, like the Euro-US Dollar (EUR/USD) or US Dollar / Japanese Yen (USD/JPY).
Forex trading is used to speculate on the relative strength of one currency against another. The foreign exchange market is an over-the-counter market, which means that it is a decentralised market with no central exchange.

Who trades currencies, and why?
Daily turnover in the world's currencies comes from two sources:
Foreign trade (5%). Companies buy and sell products in foreign countries, plus convert profits from foreign sales into domestic currency. Speculation for profit (95%). Most traders focus on the biggest, most liquid currency pairs, known as "The Majors". These include US Dollar, Japanese Yen, Euro, British Pound, Swiss Franc, Canadian Dollar and Australian Dollar. In fact, more than 85% of daily forex trading happens in the major currency pairs.

The world's most traded market, open 24 hours a day
With average daily turnover of US$3.2 trillion, forex is the most traded market in the world. A true 24-hour market from Sunday 5 PM ET to Friday 5 PM ET, forex trading begins in Sydney, and moves around the globe as the business day begins, first to Tokyo, London, and New York.
Unlike other financial markets, investors can respond immediately to currency fluctuations, whenever they occur - day or night.

Gold and Precious Metals.
Intro to spot metals trading

Trading spot metals allows you to speculate on the price movements of gold (XAU/USD) or silver (XAG/USD) relative to the US dollar or other major currencies. Spot metals markets are quoted and traded in a very similar way to currency pairs. Trading is available 24 hours a day from Sunday 11pm GMT through to 10pm Friday GMT.
The 'spot' price refers to the price quoted for the metal to be paid for (including delivery) two days following the date of the transaction (the settlement date).
Spot gold and silver trades globally over the counter with the main centres for trading in London, New York, and Zurich. Liquidity in the spot metals market is typically highest when European market hours overlap with trading in New York, and the market can experience periods of illiquidity around the close of the US market.

Who trades spot gold and silver, and why?
There are many different reasons that drive investors to trade spot gold and silver: Speculation on price movements in a very liquid market, often using fundamental and/or technical analysis to identify potential opportunities Part of a balanced, diversified asset allocation model for an overall investment portfolio
As a risk management tool, used as a hedge against market volatility caused by economic, political or social turmoil. Spot metals are quoted internationally in US dollars per troy ounce, and trading takes place in ‘lots’. A single lot of gold is 10oz. A single lot of silver is 500oz.Like forex prices, spot gold prices are quoted in very small increments called pips or "percentage in point". A pip refers to the second decimal place for a spot gold quote, or 0.01. Each pip represents 1 cent in dollar value. When calculating the value of your trade, remember that spot metals trade in lots. For spot gold, a lot is 10oz, which means that a one pip (1 cent) movement in the gold price represents a $0.10 dollar price movement for each lot that you are trading.
