With this in mind, here's some things you need to know about the currency market, so you can take the next step and start forex trading. A survey conducted in Nigeria in 2008 by a development finance organization, the Enhancing Financial Innovation and Access revealed that about 53.0% of adults were excluded from financial services.

Some traders are new to forex trading and that is why it is only fair for brokers to provide them with the necessary learning materials that will help them improve their understanding of the market fluctuations and forex trading as a whole. Many brokers allow traders to open a demo account, which will allow them to simulate forex trading without any risk of losing real money. In addition, e-books, videos and even webinars on forex trading are also provided.

Daily currency fluctuations are usually very small. Most currency pairs move less than one cent per day, representing a less than 1% change in the value of the currency. This makes foreign exchange one of the least volatile financial markets around. Therefore, many currency speculators rely on the availability of enormous leverage to increase the value of potential movements. In the retail forex market, leverage can be as much as 250:1. Higher leverage can be extremely risky, but because of round-the-clock trading and deep liquidity , foreign exchange brokers have been able to make high leverage an industry standard in order to make the movements meaningful for currency traders.

The overall feeling among investors about the direction of an asset can be a major influence in any financial market, and forex is no different. If the majority of traders believe a currency is on the way up or down, it can influence others to follow suit.

In Forex, a bar chart is made up of a series of bars. These bars show opening price, closing price, as well as the high and low for the period of the bar. The top of the bar is the highest point the price reached and the bottom shows the lowest price that bar fell. The dash on the left shows the price the bar opened and the dash on the right shows the price the bar closed. Bar charts are also known as OHCL charts (Open, High, Close, Low).
