Chapter 5. Forex Trading Vehicles

Chapter 5. Forex Trading Vehicles

As the largest market in the world, Forex attracts all kinds of investors. Each has a different reason for being in the market, and each uses a different technique and mechanism to achieve his or her investing goals. Although you might not be interested in using these techniques or strategies yourself, it's a good idea to learn about them anyway. They will move the markets and affect your returns.

Most traders in the Forex market today have one ambition—to make money fast. Of the market's average daily turnover—$1.2 trillion—more than 90 percent of the trades are speculative. That means that the person or institution investing that money has no other objective than to turn a profit. This is supported by other Forex statistics. More than 40 percent of Forex trades last less than two days, and 80 percent last less than two weeks (source: BIS Triennial Survey, 2001).
