Foreign Exchange As The Traderís Alternative by Mark Galant
Trading opportunities in the forex market deserve serious consideration as a diversification strategy for your portfolio.
While online equities and futures trading have enjoyed exponential growth and widespread notoriety over the past few years, online foreign exchange trading is only now gaining popularity among seasoned active traders, commodity trading advisors (CTAs), and other professional money managers.
Until recently, large international banks dominated
the foreign exchange (FX or forex for short) market,
only allowing access via telephone trading to a select
few such as Fortune 1000 companies, large funds,
highĖnet worth individuals, and so on. But now, the
tide has turned and finally there are established
online trading firms that provide individual investors
with direct access to the largest, most liquid financial
market in the world.
