Looking to make an extra income? Not sure how to go about it? Ever considered making money on the internet? If you answered yes to any of these questions then Forex trading could be the answer for you.
Let us first consider what Forex it actually is….
Trade forex is a term that is used to describe the exchanging of foreign currencies. In order for this to work you need to purchase an agreed amount of a specific currency and then sell it on as a different currency with the aim of making a profit, depending on the exchange rates available at that time.
How to Trade Forex

- You can trade 24 hours a day, 5 days a week

The Benefits of the Trade
There are many benefits to being an online forex trader. One of the main advantages is that you can work from anywhere in the world as long as you have access to the internet. There is no set limit on the amount of time spent trading so you have the freedom to choose your own working hours. You also decide on the capital invested; depending on your available income.
What is a Broker?
A broker is a company or person who purchases and sells currency for you for a fee or percentage amount from the actual trade. Deciding on a broker is completely your own decision. It is recommended that you do your research before signing up to one and trying out demo accounts they have available in order to see if they meet your requirements.
