What is Forex Trading?

Forex (FX) means the exchange of one currency for another. There are always investment opportunities in the FX market, if the investor is optimistic about the trend of a certain currency, they may go short/sell or go long/buy it.
Forex prices fluctuate constantly, this can be due to a number of scenarios, including political turbulence, interest rates being increased/decreased, stock market movement, economic environments, military affairs and many other factors.
